October 7, 2013

FAMILY!!!!  How the heck are you guys??  Today we are trying a different lanhouse to send emails so hopefully the internet will be better!  It was freakin weird not being able to chat with you guys!!! hahah.  HOW AWESOME WAS CONFERENCE??  Me and Burton watched it all in English and I enjoyed it a ton!  I felt like so many of the talks and the things said were written just for me.  It is way cool how the things they say apply so much to the things that I need.  Hollands talk was fantastic.  I also liked how all of the talked about missionary work with members, enduring to the end, and having faith and hope through our trials.  It was great!!!

This week we also visited Anderson and Mayara a lot.  We try to visit them and talk to them as often as we can.  On friday they called us to take us out to eat.  When we got to the restaurant, there were three little lakes next to it.  They said we were going fishing!!! hahah it was so cool!!!  We fished with them and ate and had a great time.  Then we taught them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ: Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Holy Ghost and Endure to the End.  It looks like it will take a little while for them to get married and baptized tho cuz of family problems.  But we are here to help them every step of the way.  They are reading the BOM everyday and are already to 1 Nephi 14.  It is great!

We also had a family night this week which was great.  We taught one of the twins and we are planning on visiting them this Saturday.  It is tough to visit them cuz of their schedule.  Also, their mom isnt too supportive of the church and stuff so that gets in the way too.  But we will see how the visit on Saturday goes.

We are back to doing a lot of contacts to find more people to teach.  It is tough, but thats what needs to be done! haha.  We are trying to get references from members as well, so we will see how that goes.  I love you all and hope that you have a great week!!!  Shout out to the best dad in the world having his birthday on Saturday!  35 years old right? ;)  I love you dad!!!  I will be thinking of you!!!
