November 11th-18th, 2013

dear family,

thanks for all the emails, it`s always nice to read them.

mom i need you to do a favor por fa, because the zone conference before a missionary goes home the mission does a little video tribute to the missionary, like with the video of when he got to the mission and some photos from his mission. my last zone conference is coming up so they are going to do the video tribute to me and they are already asking me to send them photos. i just need you to send me a photo of before the mission of me by next monday. i was thinking of that photo of me right before i got my haircut and had a red semi afro? i think it would be good for the missionaries to laugh at haha. and you could also send five or six of the photos that you think it would be good to use for the slide show of during my mision. if you don`t have time that`s ok i can look through the ones on my camera and choose a few but i was just thinking if you have all of the photos over there in a file on the computer or something it might be easier. so the total would be one photo from before the mission and five or six from during. thanks!

this week was really nice because all of our investigatores that have fecha are doing well. it was great to see vicente go to church in a white shirt and tie and jesus really liked the church as well. he was even asking us a lot for the book of gospel principles haha. we got one for him. we also helped a family of five that was inactive go to church and another hermano that was inactive. we owed it to a fast that we did this week so that the persons would go to church. it worked. i know that prayer and fasting works. this is the most success the lord has ever given me with the inactives in my mission, its been really great to see and we feel really blessed. we`ll keep at it. the bishop really likes it, it was classic yesterday he said you guys are giving more results than the home teaching program as a whole haha. last night we went to a stake training for the ward mission leaders. ours just got called yesterday, he is the bishops son. we went with him and the bishop, and president treviƱo gave the training. it was really good and  helpful. i don`t know about utah but here in mexico there has been a ton of focus on the new work of salvation program. it`s really great. now everything is combined, if there is a training for the missionaries, the members are invited, if there is a training for the members, the missionaries are invited. its all for one nowadays. i like it. our bishop is really great. the stake president here is getting realesed this week in stake conference. that means elder de hoyos is coming!! i`m really exicted. 

well thanks for everything guys i love you lots! today we went to littler ceazars haha it was great. i`m full. 

love you lots.
