So this week went really good!!!! I absolutley loved conference but i didnt get to see all of it. I arrived late almost every single session and i didnt get to see the last session. I had to leave my area to see it, which isnt too far away, buti had to look for investigators for a couple sessions which doesnt help me on the time issue.
There has been a few interesting things that happened this week. By the way, Hans sounds like a capo!!! (Capo means stud) Dang!
Well to start off, last week one of the elders from my pension got emergency transfered to another area and we recieved a different missionary. That was a different change that we had and it is been a little different without Elder Knighton, but oh well. He was the tall one. This week there is another emergency transfer. My comp is going to be leaving today and heading east of here. He was a really fun companion and we have worked pretty hard together. He has been here in this area since he has arrived and he arrived with me pretty much. It is good that he gets to leave and see more of the area and help spread the Gospel in other parts. I will be getting an elder that was in the offices. His name is Elder Boyer and he is from Utah, but i dont know much more than that. We will seee how things will go.
A ver, We have some baptisms coming up here soon so that is exciting!! One of our investigators told the other elders that she feels good in church and that she thinks it is right. She had these feelings when she was listening to conference.
Think week a drunk tried to steal my watch and i took my hand away. Then he got in my face so i gave him 2 pesos( 50 cents) and we walked away. I really didnt like that though, but oh well they are drunk. There are alot of drunks here and you have to be careful around them.
We found 4 kids that want to be baptized and they will be baptized the 16 of October. We also have another investigator that told other missionaries that she felt really comfortable in conference and that these things are right. That in other churches she hasn´t felt like this, but ours, yes, makes her feel good. So that is really exciting!!
I am glad that you like reading the Libro de Mormón dad. I love reading it. it takes me to a different place. I dont feel like I am in the world when i read it but i am in the middle of Old America. I am in the end of Alma now, chapter 58.I read really slow, but i take alot of notes. I am not sure i can do a month challenge or 2 or 3 month challenge becuase i read so dang slow. hahhaha
I am glad that everything is doing well there. that Erik is hapy and what not. That the family is doing good and everything!! How are the grandparents??I hope that the kids are doing alright and that molly is doing well with the baby coming on the way. I am sorry to hear about your medical problems mom. They arent fun i can see, but i know that you were givin this challenge in your life to make you stronger! I do hope that you feel better soon though and that this thing with the insurance gets taken care of.
If there is anything that you need let me know!! I am not sure how much i can really do, but i can pray for sure!!!! I love you all!!! Be Safe!!! I pray for you all!!!I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
Con Amor <3
