So this week, like all the other weeks was just absolutely great!!! We had chance to meet a lot of new people, and teach a lot of new people! We helped this one guy get his car out that he got stuck in the dirt. and we contacted him and set an appointment to come back and teach him.  Then later that night walking home I slipped and fell completely in the mud..... 
  But my comp and I have been working really hard this week with a couple less actives that the ward has given us.  They all came to church yesterday, and are all super excited to keep going to church so that is great! Then there is a little girl who her family is part of the less actives and she is going to be baptized  this Saturday!! so then the whole family can be members and be attending!! 
  Things with my comp are going super well, This week we also went to Burger King last monday, and it was taste of America!! (cause there doesn't exist McDonalds here, or Taco Bell) 
  The ward is working better here! The entire Ward Council has changed, and now we are learning how to work together more. I think it will help things progress in the ward! We are learning how to work with the ward better, and I know that that will help us have more sucess!!! 
  Well thats all I have this week!  Thanks for everything that you guys do! I love you guys so much!!!

It was a great week here!!! So I had my birthday on Wednesday.  We also had a zone conference that day.  After we got done some members invited us over for cake, and they sang for me, it was awesome!!!!  Then we went and bought some burritos at this one super yummy place!!! Then I made sure to buy some snickers in the super market, (even though they are kind of exspensive) to celebrate a little!!! Haha my next birthday I will either be home, or on the plane ride home, so we can celebrate together!!!! 

But even though my comp has been having really bad teeth aching problems, we have been working super good this last week!!! We had some amazing lessons, and we are learning so much together!!! But we also had a great experience this last week!  When we went to lunch, we got there and the husband was not there.  So we told the wife that we can't go in, and we will just wait outside till he gets there.  She kept saying that it doesn't matter, and it's ok, we can come in.  But we told her that we really couldn't.  Then like Two minutes later a man came walking by and said hi to us.  He told us that he was a member from another area but he was passing by to visit his sister. Then he told us how his sister was not a member, and asked if we could join him to go meet her.  So we went, and met a very nice couple, and they seem really interested about learning more!!!!  It was great, because if we would have gone inside to wait we would have missed that man, and we wouldnt have been obedient! 

Well thanks for everything.  I love you guys so much!!! I hope everyone is doing great!!!! love you all!

Wow seems like you guys had a ton of struggles to make everything go right!! It has also been raining a lot here!!! I sent some pics of me and my new comp in the rain!!!  It's crazy here.  Everywhere just turns into rivers!!
 Well this week has been great!! My comp and I started contacting a lot, because we are struggling to get new people, and we just had a week full of miricles!!!! There is one family who just fell into our hands thanks to some members, and they seem like they will be great! Then there was this one house that when we were late going to this one appointment I felt like we should stop and contact this one house... My comp was kind of surprised because he knew we were late.  But I really wanted to contact it.  So we knocked, and some people came out, and let us in.  We got in and started teaching this 18 year old kid.  When we were teaching, his little brother who's 14 came out and started listening.  Then his sister came out and started listening.  Then his grandpa, then his cousin!!!  We started teaching and they were all so interested in our message and so we just changed our message and started talking about the BOM, and they were all so intrested, and want to keep learning!! 

Everything is really going great here though.  My comp is struggling a lot getting used to the mission.  But we are slowly working things out!!  I love it here!!   I'm so happy to hear that you guys are doing so good!!!   You are the best parents ever!!!   I hope you all have a great week!!!!! love you all!

Well training is a lot more different than just normal mission work..... So my comps name is Elder Carrasco, and he is frorm Santiago, Chile. He is super amazing, and we are going to do lots of good things together.  Something is wrong with this computer, so I can't send pictures, but I will the next week. 
   So when we were in the training meeting right before it started president called me over, and told me that he felt really strongly that he knows who my comp is, and then told me who my comp was going to be, and that the Lord trusts me with him... He never tells people who there comps are going to be before the meeting, so I feel like I have a really big responsibility... 
  But this week was great.  For the first time we went in the new church, and we had a lot of people attend.  Even though it has been freezing cold here, and rained everyday this last week.  The new church is so nice, and so beautiful.  The Leon family loved the church also.  Unfortunately, they found another problem with their papers so its going to take two more weeks to process them.... The good thing though, is that they are staying excited!!!! 
  I'm so glad to hear that grandma is doing better, I was so worried about her this last week, and that relieves me to hear that shes out of the hospital!!! 
  The rain this week has been really tough, I feel like I just wade through rivers all day, because that's all it is... my area just fills up with water, and you have no other choice than to walk in the water.... 
  But it's been a great week, thanks for all your love, I'm so glad to hear you guys are doing so well!!! Love you all tons!!!
