June 10, 2013

We had a really good week this past week!!!!!! : ) I swear actually that this past week was one of the fastest weeks ever. I dont know why, but it was fast,,, We found a couple new people to teach and we are receiving references from some of the members. This ward is a little bit weak, : / but we are trying to change that, The bishop is brand new so he still doesnt really have the hang of things.... I dont know if he realizes the importance of the missionaries, and how we work with him. This is the first ward that i have been in where we hardly have zero communication with the bishop.... he is always gone. working, or busy.... but it is really hard sometimes when we dont have the back up or support that we need, but we are still working well!!!!!! and still finding people. The new family that we found is la familia Zepeda, We contacted the husband in the street and he is interesting, but he really has desires to listen and learn from us... this last sunday we put members in charge of picking them up and bringing them to church,,,, but they didnt even come to church, and so they didnt pick them up................. ahhhhh frustrating.... the family we put in charge of picking them up are recent converts,,,, and they have missied two sundays. They are having doubts or problems,,,, who knows, but that was frustrating, but the family is golden,,,,,, we just need to get them to the church! We have two weeks left in this change before everything gets crazy with changes!!!! but we are going to try and set them up so when the changes come they will be ready to be baptised.. Its something that happens a lot in the mission, the baptism usually come from the missionaries that were in the area before. They did all the work, then the other missionaries get the baptism. But just getting the baptised is enough!!!! : ) so i hope we can get them all prepared. We had our last zone meeting Multi zone meeting with our president of the mission. That was a little sad and emotional for everyone, but it was good. We had a testimony meeting and they talked to us, and they let us ask a lot of questions, Personel questions : ) They will be living in Culiacan when they are done, because now they have there life here pretty much! and it will be a little weird to have a new president. getting aquainted with everything again. But it will be fun also. At the end of the meeting when they were leaving out the door we sang g one of the hymns until we meet again!!! it was good. :) i recorded it on video. : ) but we will miss them. I am sure the new mission presidents will arrive here shortly to get a little bit accustomed to everything . I dont know exactly what happenes, but i hope they get a few weeks to prepare. Everything is good here in mazatlan, I get sun burnt a lot.... things are starting to heat up!!!!! we ride our bikes here a lot now, we got one of them fixed because the tire popped. but it works now. Dad i wish you a happy Fathers day tomorrow!!!! hope you have a good day. I love you. still trying to send you your letter,,, mail is horrible here... and its hard because we are always to busy to go and send letters....... but it should be sent tomorrow for sure,,,, i know i have said that like amillion times. but manana!!!!!! The picture is photo shopped, but ti was cool, we got to shake elder hollands hand, and then we listen to him speak, He spoke his talk about personel conversion to the missionaries. and told us that the most important thing to do on your mission is convert yourself!! It was good, and cool to watch him and his translator speak. together. tell danny a hecha la ganas I dont know who is in your class dad in the church, but tell them to really study their book of mormon, If they have plans to go on a misison, tell them to prepare now, They will be that much more prepared. Mom i love you hope the business is good!!!!! I am happy Elise and Les came to Utah, thats fun to have them for three weeks!!! Love there family. Im healthy, everything is good, lots of mosquito bites, their is a lot of mosquitos here also, we sweat a lot also. glad the singing went well. Hope you travel safely mom!!!!!!!! I love you two!!!!! thank you for the vitamins, i like them, : ) tell missy muchas thank yous, My companion is pretty cool, he likes rock music, and he is kinda funny, but really just a normal guy. he is from tijuana. right by the border. He told me he couldnt jump the border because he couldnt climb up the first fence, then i asked him, there is a second fence and he told me yeah its two time more taller, and then it has barbed wire on top. But he is cool, He is a convert, he used to wake up in the morning and drink coffee, and watch his favorite show, but he tells me now that he is a member of the church that he cant do that anymore : ) he is smart and knows his stuff though. Good companion, likes to play soccer. I cant beleive the little girls cut off that much of there hair!!!!! estan pelon ahora, Im glad to hear that melanie went to her mission already. I feel a little bit weird, i dont know why, It is really cool that we are both in our missions at the same time, and that she will be having the same experinces as me. Its sooo exciting, and i am grateful for her and that she is their now. I love you my family, I am grateful for everyones example to me, and i hope everyone is doing well. Love you guys, have a good week!!!!!!!!
