well i spent a lot of time reading your e mails, good stuff. keep up the diet dad!! thanks for commenting about that mission conference, here the mission himn is brillan rayos de clemencia. brightly beams the fathers mercy, or something like that.
well the hermano lehi went and bought me a 4000 peso camara for 1800 haha so i bought it from him for 1800 pesos. its like 170 dolares if you wanna put it in my acount! the camara is way nice, it even has wifi haha to send pictures direct from the camara. it can take hd video haha it´s a sony. i got a killer deal. way nice. electronics are way cheaper in mexico.
well i don´t have much time to write but i am way excited for general conference, it is gonna be awesome. we found a new family to teach. a single mom and her kids and nephews and nieces. they all went to church yesterday!! it was awesome. we also found a really humble guy named filiberto that also went to church, he got there on his own, it was awesome. teaching him is going to be hard cause he is really poor and not very educated so it is hard for him to understand some of the things. but we can do it. the training we had in veracruz on friday was great but we got back here way late and didn´t get much sleep. we are going again on tuesday for the zone leaders conference. after the confrence on sunday we are going to baptize jesus in the stake center. he is really excited and making a lot of changes in his life. he loves the church.
i love the gospel and know it is true, i love being led by the spirit to be able to fulfill my missionary purpose. i know that faith is one of the most important principles of the gospel, for something it is the first principle.
