Well, happy anniversary Lyssa and Brando. Google says I should buy you guys something made of pottery.
Well, on Tuesday we had a Multi-Zone Conference, with president and the Area Doctor. It was nice because I put my name on the list to talk with him. I talked to him about my rash that I still had, he just gave me a name of a pill and told me how to take it. And it seems to be going away.  It's really nice. I don't have huge red spots all over my body any more.
The week was kinda tough.  We had a lot  of fallen citas and contacting here is like contacting in San Pedro all over again, nobody wants to receive us.
After a fallen cita, we went to visit an inactive member. The grandparents have been inactive for 15 years and were baptized over 30 years ago, but they have to grand boys (16 and 15) that have really never been active in the church. They got home from school half way through the cita. We invited them to join us. As we sat and talked to them, it really reminded me of Mike and I. But I was overcome with sadness for them because their grandparents don't want to help them, and their active father does not live with them so he can't help much.  We invited them to start to read the Book of Mormon,  and to go to church.

The lights went out one night so we had to go back to the house early.
We got and investigator, R, to go to church, he is 18 years old and his friend in college talked to him about the church.  We kind of  just contacted him one of my first days here. He really enjoyed church, and invited his mom and brother as well. His mom knows a member from my first area.  She called her and let me talk to her for a few minutes. It was really fun. The same member who took this picture (  But The investigator is really happy.
As well they changed the bishop here, nobody knew it was going to happen.
Today we went to Castle in Omoa and then to the beach to eat. So I will try and send photos later! 

So anyways enjoy your week I love you all and will talk to you guys later!!!! Stay Safe!  Kisses, hugs and belly rubbs BYE!

Elder Coniam Loves you  a lot!
