Last Letter

Hola Familia,

Another week down. Not many more left in the countdown haha. The time has flown by, it has all seemed like a dream lately. I am hoping to make the best of my last few days, we are gonna keep workin hard and hopefully have some more baptisms.

The work continues here, yesterday we baptized a 9 year old boy whose mom has been less active for the past couple years. She recently moved her to our area and right when she was unloading all of her boxes and stuff we seen her and asked if we could help. She said yes and told us that she was a member. We have been working with her the past couple weeks and she has came back to church and liking the ward. Then the big bonus came when she told us that Miguel was 9 years old and not baptized. haha

Right now we are working with an older couple Enrique and Yolanda. They both are about 75 years old and they are great. They have been to church twice now and really like it. We are hoping to baptize them this Thursday but if it doesn't work out that's fine too.

The Lord has really blessed my companion and I these past weeks. We have seen so many miracles. I am so happy to be ending my mission here in the area where I am. I have had so many amazing experiences as of late. I hope to keep seeing similar miracles back home with all of you guys. The Lord blesses those who put their trust in Him.

Well I am excited, nervous, happy, and a little bit scared to get back and see everyone again. I hope you guys haven't changed too much haha. I will see you all Saturday, thank you so much for all the support these past two years, I will never be able to make it up to all of you. Love ya, see ya soon!!

Hola Familia,

How has everybody been this week back home? I hope that all is going well. Everything sounds great. Things here in Mexico are going good as well. We haven't had as much rain lately, that has been nice. Elder Castro already went home about a month ago he had to go early to take some test for school or something. But ya Elder Anderson will be ending with me, along with 6 other Elders.

The work is going good. Every week the Lord blesses us so much. This week we baptized Elena. She is about 50 years old. She has been looking for work and she still hasn't found. We found her three weeks ago knocking doors in our area. She was pretty doubtful at first but the ward really helped us with her and she decided to get baptized.

We found a lot of investigators this week, we ended up with 10 in church. It is sometimes sad to know that I won't be here for the baptisms of all of them but it's cool. The Bishop told me on Sunday that Eric should be getting a calling this next week. I am excited for him he has been super solid since day 1.

I seen a member from the ward Azteca yesterday, he told me that the Family Rodriguez is going good in the ward. That they are preparing to enter the Temple, I'm excited for them, even though I probably won't be here for it.

This week I think my companion and I ate something bad. We got really really sick. I was bad all Thursday and then when it was time to go to bed it got worse. I had a fever of 103 degrees. I thought that I was gonna die, but my companion took good care of me. Then later that night he got a fever as well. But all is well now. No need to worry haha.

Anyways, I love you guys, thanks for all your support and prayers! Have an amazing week. Talk to you all on Monday.

Hola Familia,

Another week gone haha.  The time is going fast, I will only be writing twice more after this.  Elder Myers and I finished up the zone conferences this past week and we also had to train in the zone leaders counsel meeting.  I'm pretty sure that that was my last training because in the month of July we are going to be having interviews.

The work is going well.  This week Christian got baptized, he is the husband of Leti, we baptized here my first few weeks here in this area.  Christian has always worked on Sunday so he couldn't go but his shift got changed and now he can go, he has been 3 times to church now and Saturday was his baptism.  We also baptized Rosa, she is 22 years old and we found here contacting.  She is kind of crazy but she is cool.  Then on Sunday we had the confirmations of them and the three from last week.  The ward was impressed to see all the confirmations.

Jonathan got up to bare his testimony and he blew everybody away.  He is such a solid convert!  He said that he had been looking for the truth he just didn't know where to find it.  Adelina the single Mom that we baptized Elder Jordan's last week also got up to share her testimony, it was awesome, the Spirit was so strong.  I think the ward got excited and everybody started going up to share their conversion stories.  Most people are converts down here.  And the Sacrament meeting took two hours!!!  ya it was apostasy but it was a good meeting after all was said and done.  

That is crazy about all of the fires back home!  I hope Cache Valley doesn't get any!  Hopefully everybody can make it through the fourth of July fine.  Elder Myers and I bought stuff to make hamburgers that night.  I hope everybody has a great time at the fireworks.

Anyways, I gotta go thanks for all that you guys do.  You're the best.  Have a great week!
