A quick Sunday selfie with some of the youth in the ward!

Hey everybody!

I didn't manage my emailing time too well it seems, so I don't have a whole ton of time to write this letter. But, good news: I had my baby!

Haha. My new companion, that I'm going to be training, is named Elder Gonzalez. Hes from Huehuetenango, Guatemala, and is 19 years old. He's been a member all his life (a cool part of Guatemalans -- a lot of multi-generation members nowadays). He reminds me a little of Elder Velasquez, my best friend in the mission, I think it's because Huehuetenango and Quetzatenango are fairly close together. 

He's a great missionary and has a super strong testimony of the Book of Mormon.

I love being a missionary so much! This work is true! I get to be here for 13 months more still, just helping people come to Christ! And there is nothing that a new missionary to get everything real nice and excited. It is a very refreshing change.

Have a great week! I love you all so much! 

-Elder Henry

  1. Glad you're doing so well there in Costa Rica, Spence. So it's the rainy season, huh? I can't believe an Oregon-born, Washington resident would carry an umbrella! You'll have to tell me what brand you got, because the one I got you is supposed to be really good, but it didn't last one rainstorm!

    Keep up the good work, Sweetie. We miss you something fierce.

    Love, Gran Gran & Grampa Ace
