It has been another amazing week as a missionary. There is not a better time to be a missionary in Calle Calle than right now. Things are happening here in Calle Calle now. We are looking forward to many things. I will update you on everything a little bit later in this email. I am glad that you had a fun weekend with Halloween and everything going on down there. Thanks for the sport update pops, I love to hear a little bit of that.
Questions.... We had a good halloween ha. I didn't realize that it was Halloween till like the day of, haha, it was pretty funny. We had some kids trick or treat at our house and I had bought a bag of candy just for that earlier in the day. The boys were members and I told them to come by ha. I gave them pretty much the whole bag for just 3 of them because no one else came to ask ha. Yes, we were able to treat a few new people to the Gospel this week. We found Matias who is the grandson of a less active that we are reactivating. He has a handicap and it is a little hard for him to learn. I love teaching little boys like that. It is the second one like him that I have taught and I really enjoy it. I enjoy being district leader because I am learning a lot and I am trying my best to just serve everyone that I come in contact with. It is teaching me a lot and has really helped me progress. I am pretty sure that we will know the transfers before I email you all again. Cambios are next Wednesday. I have a feeling that I am going, but who knows, we will just have to find out. We are having a great time, Elder Jensen and I. We are just going out and doing everything we can to be instruments in God's hands and we have seen some miracles. We are very different, the two of us, but we get along great so there are no problems there. Dad, yes we have day light savings but not at the same times as you all. I forgot when they were ha.
OK, now for a little update on the week. Tuesday I did intercambios with Elder Campbell from Ogden and it was great. He is a great Elder and we had a good time here in my sector. I sure do love that part of the mission, to be able to be associated with lots of different Elders and learn things from many of them and create great relationships that I hope last after the mish. We have stayed in contact with Julio and he is just so awesome. I just love teaching him because he has such great intentions and a desire to know the truth. We put him with a goal of the 1st of December for baptism so hopefully he can get there. He didn't make it to church this Sunday, but the next it will be. Yanara is doing awesome. She turned 13 this week and for her birthday I gave her one of the HLJ rings that you sent me, she loved it and I dont think she has taken it off since. She had her interview for baptism this Saturday in the morning with our zone leader Elder Pugh and she passed. She will be baptized this next Friday at 7. She has asked me to baptize her and Elder Jensen to confirm her. It is going to be awesome and we are so excited. We feel like this is just going to be the start of a huge line of miracles. Yesterday for the 5 minutes that I had to think and ponder because the rest of the day we were going non stop I just thought to myself how much this sector has changed and it just felt so good to be able to see the hand of the Lord in the work. He has really done so much here. I hope to be able to be a tool in his hands, that he can use me to do all that he has planned for this sector, and that with my clumsy unwise actions I will not mess up the plans that he has for this sector. I have seen my prayers answered in the last few months. I know that the Lord listens and if we will just humble ourselves and ask him for his help he will answer in his own time, but he will answer. The work is growing so much here it's crazy. If you could please remember our investigators in your prayers, that would be great. There are a few who are going through some real hard times. One couple we are teaching just lost their daughter. She had depression and ended up commiting suicide. We got there to their house just in time to give a blessing of comfort to the father before he left out of town to go to her funeral. We realized that we were guided by the spirit to set that appointment with him because the day before we had called him at 9:45 to set it and at 10 he received the call that his daughter had passed away and 5 minutes later he was making preparations to go see her. If we would have called later we would not have got ahold of him and we would not have set the cita to go by the next day to be able to give him a blessing. The Lord is mindful of his children I know that is true.
Well family I sure am glad to hear from all of you and I hope that all is well. Dad be safe in Washington. Mother dont work t0o hard. I love you all.
