November 3, 2014 Letter...

Hey Family!

This week I had some fun doing family history.. reading a biography that aunt Nelda wrote about Grandpa Bruce.. He was a STUD. Holy moly. He went through a lot.. a lot more than I realized. Family history seriously is the best.

This week we have seven new investigators that we found and that we are working really hard with. We got another baptismal date for December yesterday with an hermana, se llama Adela. Her partner that she lives with name is Jean, and he is a less active. We have a date for their marriage that we placed on them yesterday, and then a day after that she will be baptized. So awesome:) Also, we are going to place another baptismal date tonight. Pray for us that people will receive our message and that the Spirit will touch their hearts to know that it's true. 

I really love this work. My comp and I work EXTREMELY hard.. like i'ts ridiculous.. we go from appt. to appt., talking with every person in between... it's great work tho. I love teaching. Teaching is cake now in Spanish.. understanding is becoming a lot easier too. 

We are going to Parque de Aguas on Wednesday (today isn't P-day this week, we only write our fams then work like normal) and it's this place with water shows similar to Disneyland with the lights and water..I'm sooo stoked. I'll be sure to take a load of pics to send home:) 

Haha, funny thing here, the month of October was the month where the Catholics celebrated Señor de los Milagros (The Lord of Miracles) and they do all these weird celebrations and get drunk (there are millions of drunks every day here, and they also give us crap, so whenever they do I just speak really fast English to them and it stops them cold every single time, they have no idea what to do hahahaha) We have been poking a little fun at this celebration by calling it Señor de los Anillos, which is Lord of the Rings... hahaha. It's hard to explain how funny it is, but yeah... we always chant Señor de los Anillos, Señor de los Anillos, Señor de los Anillos, Señor de los Anillos.. hahaha. I sound like a complete idiot, but it's funny.

I'll be home probably July 12 of 2016. That is when the transfers are. I can't extend because I have school. So mark you calenders 2 years in advance, haha. It will be nice to come home that time because I'll have a good amount of time to adjust. 

I love the Elders here, and my comp is a beast.. we work darn well together and have a connection when we teach. We are turning our sector around.

Love you guys, seguir adelante!
