July 30th - August 6th, 2012

hey fam hows it hangin,

thanks for all the letters and updates sounds like you guys had fun on your trip. how´s dust doing? i haven´t heard from him in a while.

well this week was kind of a long week. we have been working hard to find new investigatores and we some that we thought were good but none went to the church so we were very frustrated. we didn´t baptize this week and we can´t get ahold of lizoli who we were plannning on baptizing this week that is coming up. early in the week we went to work in the small town of novara. its called a pueblo in spanish it just means like small village. we have to take the bus about twenty minutes to get there. there are about six or seven members there, two of which are active. we don´t work there much because it´s really hard to get people to the church in tres valles. but we figured we better try so we went and found a great family that was really interested the only problem is that the dad works on oil platforms in the ocean and so he rests for 15 days and then goes out to the platforms for 15 days. they weren´t able to go to church yesterday but we have hopes that they will accompany us this next sunday. they are called edit y hugo and have one of the pudgiest little boys i have ever seen haha. they good people though and we´ll continue to work with them. we have been hunting down the inactives in novara and tryin to get them to church and getting references. inacitves and less actives are a great way to get referencias.

also president trevino and his wife came to tres valles this week to interview us and to look at the situation of our house. i had a good interview with president and his wife is gave us lots of good things that we didn´t have for the house, for example we finally have a mirror in the house. but last night we got a call from president and he told us we need to look for a new house because our house is too hot and not up to standards, he doesn´t want us living there anymore. its true our house is sooo hot but i think i have gotten used to it. my companion is still adjusting to the heat. so this morning we went house shopping haha. a mission really prepares you for everything. we looked at several houses and the limit that we have is 2000 pesos monthly for the house. we we think we found a good one and it has air conditiong too, so we´re excited. we´ll keep looking throughout the week and next monday we´ll be moving to a new house.

in answer to your questions the book you sent has helped me a lot thank you! my companion is skinny and very neat, sometimes too neat like sometimes reminds me of dad haha. but he´s good and we work well together. his spanish is good as well, between the two of us we do just fine with spanish. a brand new missionary came to our district and can hardly speak or understand spanish and i realized that i have come a long way since i was at that point haha.

well gotta get going we still have a lot to do! love you guys all so much and constantly pray for you! have an awesome week!
