Monday August 31, 2015

  So this was one of the craziest, but also one of the best weeks I have had. My comp has needed to go to the hospital a lot, like everyday.  Then we had to go to the dentist because of his tooth.
  On Wednesday we also had a conference with President which was great.  After that I got to go on an exchange with Elder Strong, one of my best friends from the MTC, and it was the best!! 
  Then Sunday was great, but also way crazy!! So my comp and I had 13 investigatores in church, which was super great.  The Millares family should be baptized this next week, but then the last hour was way crazy, and I'll have to tell you guys when I get back!  But after that we had to try to solve everything, and sorry I don't have many pictures to send, my camera got a virus, so I dont have pictures now.... Oh well!! 
  Well just wanted to say I love and miss all of you guys!! I'm glad to hear that everyone is working so hard, and that everyone is doing so good!! I love you all!!!

Well it was a great week here!! I got to go on an exchange with Elder Decoud to this little town that is right out side of Santa Cruz, and its called Cotoca! But in the town there aren't buses or anything to get around, and there's only moto taxis, so we went on those the whole day and it was great!!  Then at night we bought some really yummy pizza, it wasn't as good as Little Ceasars, buy I still loved it! 

  This week we also had interveiws this week, and president is just the best ever. He helped me and my comp out so much!!! Then my comp he has like this fake tooth, cause when he was little he broke it, but this week his fake tooth broke, so now he has to get that repaired, which will be tough for him, but other than that he is doing really good! 

 The Millares family that we are teaching are doing really good, and they are going to get baptized on the 5th of December.  Which is going to be great!!  They are so great, and they were so prepared when we found them!! I'm sorry that my letter is short this week, but I really dont have much time.   I love you all so much, and thanks for everything!

 Awesome week here!!!! So lets just say it was amazing this week!!!! My comp and I have been needing to find more people to teach.  So we decided thats all we were going to do!!!  So we just started going all over the place looking for new people.  We found like seven new families, that accepted us, that we are starting to teach!!! 

  It has been cold here this week, and when its cold it's a lot easier to find people in their houses, so that's what we did!!! We just were so blessed to find them, and I feel like so many of them are going to progress!!!! 

  Things are really going great here, Familia pinto are doing great, and the Leon Family had some trials this week, but they are still getting ready to be baptized!! I feel so bad for them, because they are always in church, and always talk about how excited they are for baptism, they just have to keep waiting!! 

   The truth is that everything is just going great, I love and miss you all!!!! You guys are the best!!!

 So transfers came today, and I'm super happy because I get to stay in this area with my companion for another six weeks!!!! I'm way happy because I just know it's going to be great!!! 

  This last week my comp and I had a meeting with President and all the other new missionaries in the mission, and it was amazing!!! I learned so much from president and so much about the importance of the people here! President brought an entire new perspective into my life about the mission!!!  Then he related it to the atonement and it was just great!!! I want to tell you all about it, but I'll just explain it when I get home.  Because it was really deep and great! 

  So this week I met an RM from the stake here who was in our ward.  We started talking and turns out he served with Brandon and finished his mission with him!  He was trying to show me a picture but he couldn't find it!  All he said about him was ¨¨the really good missionary who wears glasses and is super funny and plays the piano?´´ and I said yep that's him!! Hahaha 

  The little girl who was supposed to get baptized couldn't.  But she will for sure this week!!  And, we have this new family that we are teaching and they are great!!! They have gone to church twice now, and Saturday night we taught them, and my comp and I decided that we would teach them about temples, and they loved it, Then two people in church gave talks about the blessings of the temple!! Then when we were talking to them after they said they want to make a goal to get sealed in the temple a year after their baptism!!! Then they said when they get sealed I need to be there.  So it looks like we have to come back here mom!!! But they did also say they want to get sealed in the salt lake temple so I guess we will see!!! Hahaha 

  It's just been really great here!!! Thanks for everything, I love you guys all so much!!!
