Well this week has just been a great week here in the mission! Right after I got done emailing you last week, my zone leaders gave me your package. I wanna say thank you so much for sending that! I really needed it. I'm sorry for how much in cost!  But thank you so much for everything! And Elder Peck says thanks for the blueberry mix, cause we made some amazing pancakes,and they were the best things ever!!!  Elder Peck is the one from kamas, and we have the same time in the mission. So this week the district leader wanted to go on a change with my comp for a day, so I went with his companion, who happens to be Elder Peck.  At first we were both nervous cause of our Spanish, and that two white boys in a dangerous area might get robbed. (Even though he is huge) It was in my area, so I was nervous to have to lead my area. But we started going, and had a good first lesson.  Then we went to this guy who I haven't visited before.  And we had a lesson with a man, and his son.  It was an amazing lesson, and they want to be baptised so badly. Then when they went to church, after the final class, the man asked if he could have one of the blessings that they talked about in Elders Quorum, a blessing of health, because he has been sick.  So we explained it all then gave him a blessing.  Then he started crying so much. I really have never felt the spirit more strongly at any other time on my mission. He then told us how his wife left him, and it's just him and his 14 year old son. His son is getting into drugs, and the day before he met us he said he prayed that he could somehow help his son. Then the next day while he was sitting in his hammock listening to music, two people in white shirts asked if they could come back another day and share a message with him!! Then we found a less active family that hadn't been for like 6 years.  They have a daughter and son that aren't baptized.  So we have been teaching them too.  They are progressing really well! It's amazing the little miricles that we have everyday! I know this work is true, and I know that God prepares people! And then guides us to them! Thanks again for everything, Tell everyone thanks for their prayers.  People were right... "Obedience brings blessings, but exact obedience brings miracles."  Because I have never been so obedient in my life, and every day we have miracles! Love you.  Love Jacob
