we havent got our letters for a month so i am sure when i go to cuernavaca that i should get the letter and the package so dont worry. also i can have cds so send me that cd in the package that would be sweet and send me all my church cds from efy with a case of cds if you can. that would be awesome. and the shoes just have tate try them on and they should fit. i see he is wearing my cleats so i guess we have the same size now. that is sweet that you found out all those conextions with the husband of mckell. i know zack isles he was a really funny kid but yeah i was there when he was going through all those problems it was pretty sad but that is good that he is takeing the missionary discussions. he is a really good kid. that was nice of pres to write a letter and also major may i remember when she yelled at me. haha sounds like i got my family when i go back to the academy so thats good. i really dont want to go back with that weird guy they put me with. haha that family was crap haha jk. but this week was a good week. we have found alot of really cool people and we finally got people to church this week we had 7 in church. this past change has been tough getting people to church. we were going to baptize a little girl she has her interview and everything but her dad isnt ready yet and he wants to do it with her so they will get baptized this month coming up. on saturday we found a complete family they were a ref from a less active family and we went and they were way cool. we asls taught this one guy named arturo that really wants to know the truth and now he is in a group tha helps people to overcome alcohal and he is like a spiritual leader in that. it isnt a church they just talk about prayer and the bible and stuff. he told us that when he prayed that he remembered a dream that he had that he was infront of on of our churches but it was locked and he didnt go in and really wanted to but couldnt. he also had a dream where he goes and helps the people to overcome their adicions. right there i was like this guy is getting baptized and then right after that he told us i feel like god has given me options that both options are good and i choose the one that i am in right now. i was like you got to be kidding me you prayed and god made you remember that dream i told him maybe god is telling you you should do both because what your doing now is good but it wont save you. god is showing you are church because it is the only church you can do saving ordinances to be saved and we talked about the preisthood and all that and he said he will read the book of mormon and keep praying. i really think that he will get his answer in the book of mormon. he is a way spiritual guy and when he goes all of his family will follow him and i can see him being a future in the church. so pray he gets his answer. so we have alot of cool people for this month. it was hard at first not having anything but now we got the wards trust and for the first time the bishop invited the misisonarries to ward council so we are improving. so all is good here. tate and teish keep up the good work in footbal and tennis. sounds like you are tearing it up. mom and dad sounds like you had fun at utah. i happy for mckell and her new husband. keep up the good work and i love you all. elder hancock oh and me and my comp want more peanut butter and honey. and my comp wants a shirt that says baptising just do it like mine. and i dont know how long it talkes but i am going to cuernavaca on friday so i dont know it it is possible that you send the package tomorrow and it can get there by friday. anyways love ya. elder hancock

whats up fam. sounds like all is going good. that is good that teisha won in tennis and in her campain. shell make a good president. haha thats good that tate won his first game. that is crazy that he is in 8th grade. i still remember all my games in 8th grade. crazy. that is good that texas beat ucs. thats awesome that jay got to start and that he had a good game. i am proud of that kid. thats awesome that he is playing good. but this week was a good week. we just pretty much talked to everyone and we had some good lessons this week. we also visited a bunch of inactive members this week. there are a bunch in our area. the one  guy that we found this week is named Pedro. he just let us right and he had alot of questions. He had talked to missionarries before and he said they just left. so he had a book of mormon and we taught him the plan of salvasion. it is so easy to teach someone that has questions and a interest to know the truth. we have another lesson this week with him. it was alot of fun to teach him. we also found this one guy that makes comertials and stuff for the radio. he can change his voice to sound like whatever. he is way cool too. i believe if we can get the members involved with these cool people that we found that they can get baptized this upcoming month. so it was a good week this week. the zone is down in baptisms this month so we are trying to pump everyone up. so that is all that has gone on this week. oh they celebrated their independence this week so there was a bunch of parties this week. oh also we taught this little girl that is 8 her mom is a member and she wants to be baptized and she is one of the smartest little girls i have ever taught. she told us. me and my family used to go to church but i didnt like it because they dont even have a prophet. it was pretty funny. but that is all that went on this week. me and my comp are working hard and trying to get our investigators all ready for baptism. i know that baptism without the authority of god doesnt count for anything no matter how someone is sincere about it. that is why we have to talke to everyone about the gospel because without it they cant enter the kingdom of god. when we talk to someone we dont have anything to lose but we have everything to gain if they accept it. i know that this is the true church and there is no other church upon the earth that has the authority of god. we talked to a guy yesterday that told us that he just started to go to a christian church and said a apostle came to speak at this church. i asked him where did he recieve his authority to be a apostle. he didnt know and he let us in to teach him. he told us he is going to ask this guy where he got his authoriy. i wish i can see his face when he askes him. haha. i have been learning alot about the gathering of isreal. there are alot of promises that are being fulfilled right now. it is cool to be apart of this gathering. thanks for all you do for me. keep up the good work in all you do. but yes i want new shoes. get me brown echoes. i wear 10 or 9 and a half. but yeah i need some new shoes. but i love you lots. elder hancock
