Dec 6 2010

hello fam. it sounds like all is good in texas. this week was a great week. yesterday we confirmed judith and we baptized her daughter that just turned 8 after church. and before church we baptized suzie. she is 9 and her sister is a member and her grandparents are really strong members. her parents are investigating the church and the dad told us he is 70 percent sure that the church is true. the spirit was really strong at the baptism and we are going to talk with them this week and try and see if we can set a baptism date for the parents. so sunday was a busy day for us. we still need to confirm yuritzy. we stopped by their house and the dad said that he couldnt make it to church because of a problem with his son. so she didnt come. the story with them is that they know the church is true and they have desire to go but they are dirt poor. you saw the picture of all the little girls that they have. . he said that he really wants to got to the temple with his family and be sealed. we didnt even teach him that and he told us that. so they are way cool. they just have alot of trials that they need to overcome. but yuritzy is awesome she knows everything that we have taught her and more. we will make sure she makes it to church this week. this week we found this cool kid his name is oliver. he is 18 and i knocked his door and talked to him. i asked him if he believed and god and religion and something like that and he was like he had his douts and i was like what kind. he said like why are there so many churches and confusion and stuff. i was like well let me tell ya about someone that had that same doubt. it was way cool he really liked it and accepted to be baptized. he just didnt go to church this week so we will see what happened there. he probably just didnt wakeup on time. and slept in. . haha but another way cool experience was we knocked the house of this lady her name was melina and her friend was there and her name was karina. at frist they didnt seem like they were listening really well to our lesson about the restoration and then melina started to open up and tell us that she went to one of our churches when she was in the u.s. she said that she felt peace and comfort there. i told her that we pray every night where we need to go as missionarries and us being there is no coincidence and when i said that karina began to cry when i said that and i just bore my testimony and we asked her what was up. and karina told us a experience she had that one day when she was feeling depressed and alone. she prayed and went to bed and had a dream where she saw a man dressed and white and his hands where spread out and extended toward her. she said she felt comfort and peace and she wasnt alone. she said that last night she felt the same way and began to pray and she had the same dream last night that she had had before. she said that when i said that there was no coincidences that she felt that same peace and love that she felt and she was crying all through this story and she was like i feel it here and held her heart. she was feeling the spirit way strong and so were we. i felt it way strong when she was telling her story. we comitted to baptism and to go to church. we told them that they would feel the same peace and comfort if they went and they didnt come. i feel they will bebaptized but we need to stress the importance of church again. we had 5 in church so that wasnt bad but we should have alot more. but that was a way cool experience this week. God really is prepareing those that are ready for the gospel we just need to find them or members need to find them and then tell us. haha but yeah this week was good.we should continue to have alot of success this month which is good. we have changes this saturday and dont know if we are leaving i dont want to because of all of out success that we have lined up but we will see. my comp has been in the same zone here his whole mission so who knows. haha but i sent some pics one is a family that is in the ward. he is the patriarch with the hat he is so funny. they are way cool. we dont have a bishop right now because he moved out of the area so that answeres that question. haha. but yeah everything is good here and i am loving every min of it. tell the kids i love em and to keep up the good work. and thank you mom and dad for all you do. i still have'nt got the packages. i dont know whats up.i have faith i will get them. christmas should be good. i will write you the details about that next week. but love ya i got to go. elder hancock
