March 25th-April 1st, 2013

Hey fam,

Thanks for the emails. I had a great time reading about the california trip. haha sounds like it was fun, it was classic imagining you guys there. That`s too bad your back was hurting dad, i hope it goes well at the doctor this week.

Well i`m getting transfered to tierra blanca. I`m not going to lie, i got kind of bummed out because i was already there pretty close in tres valles last year at this time and it is unbelievably hot. these next few months are the most hot here in the mission and tierra blanca is the hottest place in the mission, but i got over it quickly and am excited to go. I might have to take out my good ol handy umbrella again but oh well. I read doctrine and covenants 58:3-6 and it helped me as well. My companion will be Elder paredes and we will be the zone leaders off that zone. it will be nice to go and do divisiones in tres valles to see my old friends there. I always get a little nervous when the transfers come but i know that change is good. I just feel really comfortable here in volcanes haha. but it`s ok because tierra blanca is the zone the baptizes most in the mission. This week was pascua (easter) and I enjoyed being able to focus more on the savior and his ressurrecion. I am also really excited to be able to see the conference. i don`t think i`ve ever been this excited in my life to see it but it really is so cool. in order to prepare i have been studying the talks from the past conferrence in the liahona. All of the talks by the first presidency in the last conference are awesome and i invite you to read them again, but the one that most sticks out to me is one by president uchtdorf that is called "of regrets and resolutions" it is really good and it would be awesome if you guys could study it.

This week i worked hard to try and find people to leave behind in the teaching pool. I worked hard to listen to the spirit all week in contacting and knocking doors. but it wasn`t until yesterday in the afternoon that we found an excellent couple to teach. they accepted everything really good including the baptismal date for the 14th of abril. I felt good knowing that i had been guided by the spirit to find them. I hope they can get baptized in these next couple of weeks. One of the skills most helpful that i have learned on my mission is that of listening to the spirit. I know it will serve me well for the rest of my life.

I worked hard to leave this area and zone better than i had found it and i think i did it. i`ll be sad to leave elder chico, we`ve become good friends. as well E. gonzalez haha those dominicans are hillarious. i`m going to try and send you a video that  i took last night during planning of a conversation in english that my companions had oh it was sooo funny and i almost died laughing.

we also did a missionary activity this week where we watched 17 miracles. it`s a great show if you haven`t seen it look for it. I`m so thankful to those pioneers. well i`ve gotta get going, thanks for everything, and i love you very much. have a great week!
