June 6 2011

What up fam. no mother i havent go the package yet. i should get it today from the zone leaders and i should get the letter from grandpa from them as well. dont worry i will get them. all the new elders are here i havent met them yet but i will meet them today so that will be good. this week we baptized Conrado. it was a cool baptism. he was way nervious but he did it and after he was good. he is like 50 years old and he lives alone and he rides a bike around every day collecting trash. he is a way cool guy. every lesson he had a whole list of questions that he had written down when we got there. he told us that he has never had any friends like us before and he just thanked us for everything it was way cool. so that was the highliht of the week. also in his baptism we had 2 investigators come. there names are Alfredo and Ester. they are a couple that are references from our ward misionarries. we taught the first time in a family night with our ward missionarries that are sisters. we taught them the first lesson with the joseph smith movie. they went to church and liked it. the next week they couldnt come and them they came again this weeek. we taught them the book of mormon this week and they came to the baptism. they arent married and every time they have come to gospel docterine the class is about marrage. this week it was on the law of chastity. that was good for them to here. they were like yeah we know what we need to do. so this week we will talk to them a little more about that. but they are progressing good. we also have a young girl named anacaren she is 16 and she has come 3 times to church and she wants to get baptised. she is just a little scared because all of her family is catholic. she lives with her grandparents. she doesnt have parents. but she is progressing along really well. we are teaching alot of families they just need to come to church. so we will work on that this week. but all is going good. we could baptize anacaren this week we just need to get permision from one of her grandparents. so we will seee how that goes. but the work is moveing along good in puente de ixtla. sounds like tate ended a good year in the 7th grade. congrats on all the work that you did tate. and it sounds like teisha had a stinky week this week. haha but dont worry teish sometimes we have bad weeks. keep working hard and dont mess up my truck too bad. i need to take it to colorado in one peice. haha but tht is all that has gone on this week. we are working hard each and every day. oh this week we talked to a christian preist that lived in the united states and went to a baptist school to become a priest and after broke off from them and is christian. he is was crazy. i told him that we would listen to him and then he would listen to us. he didnt let us talk at all. that was a waste of time. its sad that the people dont understand what they are reading in the scriptures. the consepts they have are so fare off and make no sence. he was trying to say that being reborn is not baptism and that baptism isnt necessary because we were baptized when we were born and all we need now is baptism of fire and all this stuff. he didnt make any sense at all. it was just a testimony builder that this is the true church. i was about to thank him for building my testimony that what we are teaching is true. haha but i didnt. today for pday we went and played pool. that was way fun. tell tate i still got it and that he can only beat me if i scratch. haha i killed everyone today. it was fun to play some pool. but keep up the good work and keep shareing the gospel. oh this week the bishop showed us the dvds that they are makeing for the youth right now. they are legit. do you guys have them. they are way good. there are some really cool messages. i want some if you can send me some. i want those dvds to share with members. but i love you all.
