happy anniversary mom and dad, that is a long time you have been married. congragulations!! i hope you had a good day.
thanks for the updates everyone. it was good to hear from dustin. that´s true dad, i haven´t heard from tara in a long time. where is ash gonna live in moab? and yes itis going to be hot there, but she is going to be in air conditioning the whole time verdad?
This week was good. last sunday in the night. we found a great family to teach. we taught them throughout the week and they accepted everything. they even went to our english class that we teach on saturday. on sunday they went to church and loved it. the only bad thing is that the parents are not married and the dad has to get divorced from his exwife and then get married to his current wife. they have two kids, of thirteen and eight years old. they have baptismal date for the eighth of june. it´s a little hard to teach them cause the dad, obdulio, talks a ton haha. He is going to go to veracruz this week to get divorced and then the marriage would be here in tierra blanca next week and the baptism the following week. we are excited. we have two probables for this week. we are working with jose antonio, he has a smoking problem, and with julian, he just doesn´t feel sure that he wants to get baptized. the good thing with julian is that he prayed to find out if the book of mormon was true and felt shivers go all over him and knew it was true. we are going to base our lesson tonight off of that so that he commits to get baptized this week.
the zone is not going to good, but i am still excited to try and help the elderes and get the zone going good again. the month of may was bad for us but in june we already have a lot of people getting ready for baptism in the zone.
this week started the rainy season here. it has bee raining pretty good but we have been lucky and haven´t gotten to whet yet. The bad part is that it rains in the night and the morning but in the afternoon the sun comes out and it all evaporates and it is literally like a sauna. haha we have to drink a lot of water cause we swet a lot.
well i don´t have too much to saythis week. time is flying. and i am trying hard.
i wanted to send some pictures, but the computer is acting up so it will have to wait until next week, sorry!
