First of all before I get started I would like all of you to watch General Conference and write a question down that you would like answered by the Prophets and I promise that it will be answered! But I hope you guys are excited because I sure am!
Well this week I had to start really working on my work permit so we had to make a trip to Belmopan and also Belize City! On our way to Belize City there was a lady was sitting next to me and randomly she elbowed me in the chest for no reason! She didnt even say anything after! Crazy! Lets just say I didn't talk to her the rest of the ride home!
This week has been really slow... no one wants to talk to us nor go to church. But it's alright because we are looking forward! But I'll just share what happened to my companion yesterday! We were riding along and dogs started chasing us... First they went for him, then me and then back to him. As he was trying to kick the dogs away he jerked his wheel and went straight into the ditch. His front wheel got stuck in the first slabs and he went over the handle bars into the ditch. He couldn't move his hip for a while. We ended up pulling him out and sat him down in the chair. We took him to the doctor and they fixed him up! He got 2 stitches in his hand and his hip is really bruised. We ended up not working the rest of the day. So we wont be doing much lately...
I also sent a picture of a 94 year old man in our ward helping the blind man in our ward get to his car. True friendship there!
Well today the Hintzes are doing a family night and coming over! So we have lots to do today!
Love, Elda Stiles
Are there many places there to use you debit card and buy things if you needed to? Well I don't think that we use the debit card much. We just pull out money each time. It doesn't cost anything.
Did you ever buy another backpack to replace your bag? I bought a tiny little bag that I carry all my mini scriptures in. It's pretty cool.
What places do you shop there in San Elena and San Ignacio? We basically just shop at all the Chinese stores, because that's all there is.
What is the distance between the two towns? It's probably like 10 miles between towns

This is the spot where Elder Leslie wrecked while being chased by dogs.
This is the ditch he fell in. YUCK
