It was so great to be able to see all of you and hear all your voices. I sure do love you all. I am so pumped now to just go get some work done, to work as hard as I possibly can with the time that I have left. The time is going by way too fast and so I am determined to go out everyday and do as much as I possibly can to do what the Lord wants. I sure do love this work and I know that the Lord's hand is in it. I sure love you fam, thanks for all your support and love. I can feel it even though we are so so so far away. I was looking at the globe the other day and I actually realized how far I am from home haha. It is so far ha. I sure do love it though.

Well, I am not sure what I should tell you because I pretty much told you all everything yesterday. Ha, I will take advantage to tell mother happy birthday on Thursday because next time I write obviously it will be past. I sure do love you MOM. You are one amazing lady. As well as my Dad who is one amazing man. Pretty much my hero since I have been little. I can't believe how big those boys are!!! They are so cute I love them so much. I just want to give them a big huge squeeze. Everyone looked great though some were sick. My mother and two sisters are so pretty. Dad looks healthy as a horse, haha, and Caiden looks skinny as ever, haha bro I love you.

Well, for a little bit about the week. I forgot to tell you that this Saturday we had a baptismal interview for our investigator named Fransisca. She is only 9 and will be baptized with her little sister who is 8. We have been helping their parents get activated and now their Dad is going to baptize them this week on Saturday, so we are pretty excited. Tomorrow we have Zone conference, so we are pretty excited about that as well. Pres.Rappleye is coming down to give it so it will be pretty awesome.

One really cool experience that we had this week: Last Sunday one of the members came up and told us about an experience that she had as she was walking to church. A man stopped her and asked her for help (he was a little drunk). She asked him what she could do and he told her he wanted to stop drinking. She told them that she had two gringo friends that could maybe help, so she got his info and gave it to us at church. Then, this week as we were walking down the street one day, we decided to contact this one guy. He stopped, and a little drunk, told us his name was Jose and we asked him if his last name was Riveras, because the hermana who gave us the reference told me that was his name, and sure enough, we contacted the same reference we had received a few days before. God really wanted to help this guy ha. So we set an appointment and went over and taught him how the Gospel can help him be clean of addictions and sins. He accepted to be baptized in June. That was a pretty cool experience that we had this week.

Well I am not sure what else to tell you so I guess I will just wait till next week to tell you more all about the wonderful life of the mission ha. I sure do love you all. Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. Oh, and thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa Brown, for all that you have done for me through out my life and as well as right now in the mission. I love you!!!!

I feel so bad that everyone writes me emails and I can't write them back. You need to let them all know that I am thinking about them and that I would love to write them, but I can't.
