Group email -
So this week was a good week until Sunday. We had 3 people accept to go to church and one person that said he would think about baptism. But then Sunday came and not one person came or was home when we went to get them.... it was kinda sad. But our days are usually set with lecciones. So this Sunday the stake president came and talked to the ward. Our ward is pretty big and we have a lot of really cool members, but we have so much less actives in this area. Most people here get baptized and then go inactive. So we have to teach lessons with investigators a lot to help them keep there testimonies and visit less actives and visit new investigadores for one year after baptism. So there is a lot of stuff to do and tons of walking. Have a good week guys.
His email to the fam -
love you mom and dad,
So in the package can I have a USB port of songs, Cheese Its and Pringles, those are super expensive here and the music, can it be, Piano Guys, Disney music, and some BYU vocal point? and can you send and look for a quarter of Minnesota, Arizona, and Illinois. later it will explain
so do you know what I didn't bring but need... a blanket, I need one as of next month because last night was freezing. I got my towel and rapped it around me. Haha! anything to stay warm.
Tell Chace to start making a list of movies I need to see when I get home. Haha, so I can see how big the list is. and i'm glad you guys love the pictures. i'll take more this week of the area and if I stay in this area for Christmas there is one lady who has a computer and stuff so I might be able to Skype from there. The people have a fetish of collecting the 50 states of quarters. it's funny, my comp always asks about what kind of quarters people have.
I'm going on splits with the zone leader this week and he lives in a richer area so I will have a warm shower and have good food.
This week we had coffee de maiz and it was disgusting. I guess the members drink it here. so its ok? I have no idea. Haha, and love you guys and read Mosiah 4 this week. Great chapter and one of my favorites. We have one investigators with so many questions and all about false stuff about our church. So we have to explain it so much and so well or he gets on us about it, but outside of those questions he is really positive and has such a strong testimony.
Love ya guys!
