April 8, 2013

Well hello there family!
      Another week come and gone!! This week was pretty awesome with the changes and the General Conference.  I was so excited for General Conference haha:) We watched it at the church with everyone. There were so many good talks and I took some good notes.  I know that when we are obedient that is when God blesses us the most. Obedience brings blessings. There are 3 things that we always need to do to receive the blessings that God has prepared for us… read our scriptures every day, pray every day, and attend church. When we do these things and have faith in Jesus Christ that’s when we're blessed and that’s when we’re happy and have peace and joy in our lives.
     That’s awesome that Ethan’s team won Richard Hirschi’s haha! Sounds like you have a good baseball team…keep tearin it up, that’s great!!! I’m glad that the High School Baseball team beat Kanab…they got lucky haha jk. How is the team? Are they good or what??
      Yes, I love my Mission President, he is really good! He always helps out and gives comforting words to all the missionaries. When I lived in Madero I was able to see him a lot. We would have meetings and stuff with the missionaries around the area. Now that I live in Valles, I only have seen him once or twice.  Yes, I always saw the temple when I lived in Madero.
     It’s not really humid at all in Valles, it’s actually a pretty dry heat. It gets up to
 120 f. So it’s really hot some days and I sweat a lot. I used to never sweat and now I sweat a little…but I sweat the littlest compared to all the other missionaries haha.
     My new companion is from Tijuana and doesn’t speak English.  I thought he was going to be American but I guess that was a different Elder Martinez.  He has the same time in the mission as me and so we both have 7 months in the mission.  We’re just two young dudes doing work, the work of the Lord.  Since I know the area and everything I have been taking the lead, but we are both senior companions haha.
     We have sooooooooooooo much progress, I’m not gonna lie!  I have been doin work with Elder Martinez. We have so many new menos activos who we are working with and investigators. We have two that are really progressing, they are gold! Telmah…she has a baptismal date for 20 of April.  The other is Esteben.  We have so many inactives to work with and so our schedule is always packed full now.
      I have a question…what is something I can do to gain more weight back? I look a lot bigger in those photos you emailed.  I have definitely lost some muscle here in Mexico:)
Well, I love you…love everyone so much and thanks for everything bye.
