August 12, 2013

Okay to tell the truth, this past week was a little bit slow. . . . Finishing a change and finding out you are going to be in the area again with the same companion is not tough.... : ) haha but you just have to prepare in your head a little bit before that you can do it! Nike! yeah! Anyways Also after working hard to get a baptism, We work up to that final moment and then the person is baptized, and then after its like now what, ha,, but we just know that we need to push forward doing the same thing. The lords work is never over, I have been a little exhousted though this past week, and dad i havent been 100% either, but we are still teaching the same people and we also have a lot of new people that we need to teahc which is good. We have potential with some of them also. We just need to go and visit them. Wednesday was really special for me and my companion. It was really awesome to see Enrique get baptized!!! I will always remember it, and i hope he will also. I had to get permission from the president to do it, and it was something that Enrique really wanted. The place where we went is a place that he would always go with his children, and now he takes his grankids their. But It was somewhere he always went with his first wife.His first wife died on wednesday the 7th of august, And she has passed away... So he wanted to be baptized their. Where he has the most memories with her. Also he told us that he saw his dad their even though he has passed away also. So he has had special moments where this river is. So that is why we had the baptism their. The water wasnt as ugly as it looks in the picture. The white pants did not come out all green and goopy. . . haha. They were still very white. Thanks to my companion, he let me borrow his pants, and white tie. But it was a very special wednesday. We drove like 20 minutes out of Mazatlan to do it. It was almost in another area where missionaries are. but i was also scared to do it.. ha they have been finding cayman crocodiles in places further down the coast..... : 0 so i was a little bit nervous... but it was a good little place. Lots of people were swimming their and enjoying themselves. and they got to see a baptism. We have received other investigators. The mom of lixis, she is the 17 year old gilr we have been teaching. and her mom is now interested also, and we are teaching all three of them, Mom, brother, and lixis. So that is good. We are also helping and x misionary return to the church.... He served his his mission in puebla, and now he is inactive.... He married someone that is catholic... and she doesnt like church at all.... she doesnt even go to her own , ) catholics. but we are figuring out plans what to do with him and his family. They are very good. and we are working a lot with the less actives. The New president has changed a lot of rules. We are not llowed to contact people in the streets anymore... that is crazy.... also we are not allowed to ride bikes anymore.... I feel like they are getting really close to send more missionaries here. Announcements is that by the end of december we should have 250 missionaries in this mission again, and we only have 150 right now. We will receive 100 more!!!! its crazy. They have opened up 6 or 7 new areas here in the culiacan mission!!!! and They said by the end of december almost every ward will have 4 missionaries in them in the Culiacan mission. That is crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That means every area will have atlest two sets of missionaries in the ward. I think that will make it alot easier in the area of jjuarez mazatlan, because it is huge! we kind of do need back up, I wouldnt be suprised if this area im in is one of the first ones that they do put in 2 companionships. The work is so exxciting right now, and it just means the second coming is that much closer! I have grown so close to the members in this ward,,, and we keep getting closer and closer. . . ha they are all soo awesome. I will miss them when i leave. I hope everyone en(joy)ed the pictures, i know joy did, ha. Mom im really gratefull for your company, that is growing and you have such great friends to help you with it. Tell hector i miss him. He has such a white smile! Thank you for the updates on the whole family mom. I am happy that you send me whats up with everyone and how they are doing. I am very grateful for it. I love you. Dad i am really jelouse that you are going to sao paolo brazil. If you didnt know before, but since i was 12 i wanted to go their for my mission : ) but now i have realized that that is not where i am ment to be, I was called for Culiacan Mexico. and i am happy to be here!!! thanks for that scripture. keep giving me scriptures. There are lots. Love you I love you both, and i wish the both of you luck in your trips, and with your work. I love you mom and dad very much, And you two make me soo proud to be able to say that you are both such a good example to me. I love you be safe. Hermanos y hermanas, i also love you guys, i miss you all. Just one scripture for everyone 2 nefi 28:28-31, and one question, How well is everyone doing with reading there scriptures, and trying to learn (spiritually) We learn physically almost all the day long, but how much time do we take out of our busy day to put in a little scripture reading, or more time with the family, or an activity, like going to the park with the whole family, or taking a walk. I encourage you, even though i am the youngest to do something that will strengthen your spiritual side, and strengthen your unity with your families. I love you guys.!!! so much. Hope everyone has a good week. Fellingham family in a whole, or individual families, doesnt matter. Just as long as it is with family!!!! Love Elder Fellingham
