Hey momma. thanks for the update. I have been telling dad, but idk is he passed the word. can you hook me up with some boxing mits, like the little kind that carry from the gym has, and some tennis shoes for my companion. i was thinking you could bring them on the cruise and send them from inside mexico. My toes are doing good. The light the world thing is going good. The best thing this week...we reactivated a family and they are going to get sealed, and we are going to baptize their daughter, but the daughter was not learning very fast at all, but yesterday she remembered everything and it was a miracle. The worst thing was that we are never in our area and sometimes i feel like im babysitting out here.
Hey momma, things are good here. Elder castillo and the person that finished my kids training got here. The missionaries here are good, they arent super obedient with there phones, but its whatever. Tihs week i dont remember what happened, we did a ton of divisions. 5 new missionaries are coming to the zone so were going to have a lot of fun with so many people in there training. The sunday after christmas would probably be ifine. whats the date that day? My old companion is kinda lazy, but my new companion is awesome. we cleaned the whole house and the yard today and he gets up on time and showers fast and its great. This week we taught a crazy old lady but i felt the spirit strong. God always helps me teach good on divisions so i can set a good example, because usually im pretty stupid when we try to teach people. I love you.
We talk find while you teach and teach while you find, asking fro references and stuyff. We leave our area probably 3 or 4 days a week in a normal week, depends whats going on though. next transfer the divisions will be in our area so we will get twice the work done. Do you think you could send me some little boxing mits? not the giant ones i have, but maybe little ones like the ones carry from the gym has. and my hand wraps too. I just want to punch things. I was thinking you could send it when you come to mexico, because thats more secure and cheaper. but if not its okay. I Hope you have a good week this week. we didnt do a lot, we did some divisions and taught the restoration and i felt the spirit a lot even though the lady was kinda crazy. the spirit is my favorite. I miss teaching people. i used to teach lesson 1 like 4 times a day and now its like 1 time a week if im lucky because we are so busy. our pdays dont even really exist anymore, we just write when we find time because we are always running all over the place bcause our zone is gigantic. bye momma. have a good thanksgiving. i love you. you going to idaho for turkey day?
Hey momma, thanks for the picture and for the email. I think she likes me as a translator, i really like translating for her when she speaks english and i make it spanish, but changing from spanish to english is a lot harder for me. Zone conference was good, i love when sister and president clayton teach, I taught and said 20 minutes worth of words in like 4 minutes, so that was a record. I am not sure how to explain how the church flooded, there are watertanks in the roof that overflowed. it was after church so me and elder castillo got ll the water out and it was fine. It doesnt cool down here at all. in other parts of the mission it does, but where im at no. We baptized the daughter of a recent convert, and now were teaching her mom and her niece thats 17. This week i got sick because i ate some bad food and i also ate a ton of spicy food, so i threw up on the side of the road, then we were walking home because it was night time and i realized i didnt have a tooth, so i had to go back to where i threw up on the side of the road to look for my tooth in my throw up, so that was neat. that whole night i was throwing up the whole night. I had divisions with the assistants for the first time in my mission and we stayed in the house because im sick, that was a bummer. We had district conference this week which was cool and then we had zone conference which was way cooler, they taught us tons of really awesome stuff. the christmas initiative is crazy cool this year its all about service, me and elder castillo are going to organize some sweet things in the zone. Owens a quack, i miss that stinking kid, the district presidents kids are so cute, he has 2 little boys and they're pretty much my best friends.
Teaching is good, we baptized the daughter of a recent conver this week. This week we had concilio where all the zone leaders go and learn a ton of dope stuff. It was day of the dead and halloween this week, so we had to stay inside those days because things are crazy. On day of the dead it took like 45 minutes to go 5 blocks on the bus because all the streets are closed for parties and we just drove in circle trying to find open streets. I am studying the new testament, Jesus teaches tons of super cool stuff, the book of mormon and the new testament together equals awesome. the old testament just confuses me a lot still. The thing in our zone is we have a stake and a district, and the district leaders support us a ton and we see tons of miracles working together with the leaders and the wards, but the stake president hates the missionaries or something, we are sposed to meat with him and he always just blows us off. Also, yesterday the church flooded and we got there and water was just flowing out the doors so we had to get all the water out, but here the floor and walls are all tile so it didnt do any damage at all, even though the whole church was under like 3 inches of water. Tell gramma and grandpa carter to record them telling me stories like when i was little, so that i can keep them for my chilluns.
