March 7, 2011

Hey fam!

Wow the weeks just fly by. I really do feel like all I do is write to
you haha. We are having a lot of success here in the area. This
last week we had a council meeting with Presidente Manning and all the
other zone leaders in the mission. Those are always really fun
meetings. We talk about all sorts of stuff thats very important for
the mission. We got there at 8 and left at about 4 or 5 in the
afternoon. It's a long time but they fed us pizza haha!! It was the
last time that my companion will be in one of these meetings. He is
going home in three weeks. He's the best ever, really. I'm not sure that
you could find a better missionary anywhere. It has been a real
blessing to be his companion.

This week was a bummer on the baptism side. Hermanito Braulio didn't
make it. He still has a lot of doubt about very key things in the
church and about some of the commandments. So just keep him in your
prayers and some time in the future he should make it.

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE! We have two baptisms this week! Jose Maria and
Claudia. They are both young kids but they are really excited to get
baptized. Jose maria has had a really big change of heart. He´s
fourteen and if you think its hard to be fourteen in the states its
nothing compared to here. When we were teaching his Aunt silvia (our
last baptizm) he interrupted and didn't listen, in reality he was
annoying. But one day before we got there to teach Silvia about a week
before her baptism, he told us that he wanted to get baptized. He was
talking to his grandma and I don't know what she told him but he has
changed a ton! Since that day he is always there and gives us his full
undivided attention. He is going to early morning seminary everyday at
6 in the morning. He is a very different kid. Claudia's mom is a less
active member that has been stuggling. We live with her aunt and
uncle and they help her a lot.

We have a marriage that we are trying to
get to happen for the 26th of this month. We are trying to do an
activity with the relief society to help raise money for them. I have
learned something, it's better and means more to them when they pay for
it. And the members get to help and they make more friends and
everything works out better. The lord is blessing us with tons of
success in the zone and in our area. We had a companionship in our
zone with 21 lessons to an investigator with a member present. And
they still had a bunch of other lessons too!

Whoa! another cousin to get to know! That's like eight new cousins I
need to get to know when I get home! I'm the luckiest kid ever!
Congrats Lindsay and Austin! And C2 haha. Mom your K2 and He is C2
cool! Sorry that fruity and Grandma are sick! That's not allowed and
you need to get better! I hope everything goes well. I'm stoked about
all the missionary stuff that's happening back home! All the people
that are leaving and deciding to serve the Lord! The best decision
that you will ever make.

Thanks for everything fam! Good luck with your talks! Some of my
favorite scriptures about prayer are Alma 37:37 and 3 Nephi 18

Love you fam!
