April 15, 2014

Buenas!!! I hope everyone had a great week! Me and my companion sure did, we worked really well this past week. We found new investigators a family of 6 and another person who´s name is karin she is 20. We started the week teaching the family of six which is the family Sanchez. They are really awesome, we have some members that live right next to them and last month they invited them to a family home evening and they really liked it. When we went to their house this week they invited us in and we tought them how to pray!! The mom gathered all of her kids together so that they could listen to us, and me and my companion found them doing things that we did in the family home evening. Ha they are very awesome. I think they thought we were trying to do another family home evening with them, but we were just teaching a normal lesson. But they were all present and it made me happy. The mom Rosalva was really trying to do her part in getting everyone of her children to be their in the room. They all learned how to pray and we are going to see them tonight and we are going to start teaching them the lessons. They asked me to do the closing prayer so they could learn how to pray and i asked them all if they would like me to ask something specefic. and all of them told me that we want more unity in our family, and that we want to be together forever, and it made me very happy inside to be able to ask for that in the prayer. It is an amazing family and we struggle finding families like this one... and it is such a blessing. I am happy to be teaching them. I hope and pray that they progress!!!! Karin is a 20 year old woman haha and her mother died when she was younger... We tought her the first part of lesson one, and then at the end we asked her to do the closing prayer. She did it very good for her first time ever!!! and she started crying during the prayer. We also invited her to go to church, but she didnt go..... sadly, we are also going to see her tonight to see what happened. The family that she lives with is not her family, They are members of the church and help her know and understand the church. They have a doughter that is active that is 21 and she is less active........ She definitly does not help karin.......... She was making fun of KArin before she said the prayer..... I cant beleive her. We are hoping to help her and karin. She also accepted to be baptized how jesus Christ was baptized, we didnt put a date but she is a new investigator. She is great and has a lot of strength!!! Hang in there karin!!! please keep these people in your prayers. Me and my companion are getting a long really well, He teaches me lots of things, and visa versa!!!! We are working hard, and turns out at the end of the mission lots of the members talk about people dying.... not dying literally, but being dead at the end of the mission.... and i have already have tons of members that have been telling me even those that are around me the missionaries and my companion likes to make jokes sometimes..... I do not like it, but i think its something that every missionary goes through.... I am not dying .... I am trying to prove everyone wrong, Usually The dying jokes usually always come after me telling them how much time i have in the mission...... and yeah i usually just say un año y feria.... ha I try to not tell them the exact amount of time... It really does show sometimes though the affect of words. How strong words really can be..... I am happy to say that i am not dying. I am pushing forward every day with a smile on my face and i love the mission. I have in my mind all the people that have been blessed from there hard work. Something funny just happened in the Computer place where we are writing haha..... and i cant stop laughing. We just ate with the family 100fire and we helped them break garlic hahaha and some guy just walked in the computer place and said it smells really nasty and that it smells like garlic. haha Me and my companion busted out laughing jeje!! whooo still cant stop laughing. okay ........ anyways this past week was a good week. They have finally finished our house... the remodeling is over and we are finally back to a normal schedule!!!! We are less busy haha. It always feels great to be less busy. There are still a ton of things to do though, we need to clean the house , everything is covered in dust, and we dont have hot water anymore.... it stopped working our regadera water thing.... ha but it actually feels really good because it is heating up here. We are getting back to summer, it is spring right now, but spring here is like our summer and a little bit hotter... Back to sweating all day everyday, I am used to it now, and it doesnt bother me as much as it did when i entered into the mission. Something else that is interesting is that the family that we ate with today has a daughter serving in New York, and they showed me her roster of all the missionaries that are in her mission, and i saw Seth Hunter, he is serving in that mission, and i thought it was soooo weird. not Weird just very interesting. I tried to send him an email but it didnt go through. i dont know what his email is, but i would like to send him a message, I asked for the email of the daughter of the family, and i am going to ask her for his email to see if she knows who he is. Its a small world. I love you all and i am very thankful for everyone and your messages. I hope you all have a good week, love you guys hasta pronto, Elder Fellingham Culiacan, Villa Verde
