December 9, 2013

Its almost Joseph Smiths birthday!!!!!!!! hah just thought you might like to know that. We were teaching a lesson telling fun facts about Joseph Smith, and his birthday is close to christmas. Fun fact for the week. Hey Family!!!! This past week was pretty good, we had a good week, we found lots of new people, and we had interesting lessons. We have new investigators, it turns out we had to drop lidia.... she is not progressing, and she lies to us. buteverything besides that is good. We are still firends, we just cant pass by her house frecuently anymore. We are focused on other peopl who follow up with their commitments. We found someone new, her name is margarita. Se has a very good friend that is in the church. We just found her alos... ha she is less active, but knows a lot about the bible. The thing that is difficult for her is because her house is super far from the church.... but i think and figure that it is a little sacrafice to wake up sundays to go to church, I think she will keep coming. she has a lot of friends their. Margarita has a lot of family, she accepted a baptismal date, and she said she would like us to talk to her husband. She said he is very nice, and he likes things about God. He likes religion. He is a miner, and blows up hills, and mountains. i imagine it is for the big new free way that they are making. The old way to get to durango takes about 6 hours, and this new road/ freeway will only take 3 hours. they basically just cut straight through the mountains. but it is pretty cool, im sure you can look it up. They say its very beautiful. (the drive) We have a guy who lives her in villa union that is member and he helps us a lot when he can. He is dating a 22 year old in my old area in juarez, and he said he wants to propose to her in these months that come, but he is going to take a drive with her down the canyons ha. and thats where he wants to propose. He works their also, so it takes up a lot of his time. but he is a cool guy. He is basically like our mission leader. The mornings and nights are getting colder here. February and January are the coldest months in mexico.. well herein sinaloa and then it starts getting warmer, i bought a long sleeved shirt to wear in the night. I have been waking up with a sore throat these past few days, but i think its because we leave the door open to our balcony at night. I need to start shutting it. My companion still thinks he is a tough guy,,, and he leaves his fan on in the night... pff, ha i remember when i did it also last year. Turns out we had changes but we didnt get changed again!!!!! i was a bit suprised. but i could care less with the time in my mission about changes. ha. Lots of the missionaries revolve around where they are going, and thats not good. I am actually happy to still be here. I havent seen this place grow how i hoped i would make it with my companion, so i am happy that my heavenly father is giving me another chance. Every change helps me see things that did well and i did wrong, and we will be changing a few things... We always strive to be our best!!! Im doing well, we are not sick!!!!!!!!!!!!! well bad things havent happened like serious sicknesses!!! So we have been blessed. Our District didnt even change either. It is still the same six gringos... together haha. I feel bad for one elder he has like almost half a year... and he is still in his first area. Elder esplin, from Alaska.. ha All our district are good people. They are all good missionaries. I hope we can see lots of miracles this change. We have lots of investigators that are ready to be baptized.... but they are just not baptized............. ahhhhhh it makes me frustrated... one of these weeks they will be baptized though. thanks for the pictures of the snow. I miss it, although my body is really used to the weather here now.. I dont sweat at all and my companion is always asking me...... why arent you sweating... are you not hot.... ha he is still used to Idaho. In two weeks i will be able to talk with you guys so get ready,,, this week i figure out with my companion when is the best to do it, and then i will tell you next week. i dont know if we will be able to skype... remember we have a new president. I will be sure to ask, what we can do. Anyways i love all of you, here is a scripture, a good one for christmas, "And behold, this will I give unto you for a sign at the time of his coming; for behold, there shall be great lights in heaven, insomuch that in the night before he cometh there shall be no darkness, insomuch that it shall appear unto man as if it was day. "Therefore, there shall be one day and a night and a day, as if it were one day and there were no night... and it shall be the night before he is born. "And behold, there shall a new star arise, such an one as ye never have beheld; and this also shall be a sign unto you." Lets all remember to focus on what Christmas is truly about., Love you guys, travel safe, and rememer who you are. Love Elder Fellingham.
