Monday Missionary Update

(old picture - AGAIN)

Well parents,

I am sorry to say that I really havent wrotten that much in my letters that i have sent to you guys. I know that I need to be a lot better in that. I am just really focused right now in the work! Things are still going great in this sector.... in about two weeks we will have two baptisms..... Ones name is Diego and the other, is Victor. Diego is about 18 years old and really was prepared to be baptized. Victor is a little boy about 8 years old and is waaay cool. His mom and dad are less actives and we are trying really hard to activate them so that he can get baptized. In the mission, this family would be callled a family PF (or at least in spanish thats what they call it haha). Keep them in your prayes so that they can go through with it. Wanna hear something cool? Everyday pday I am playing BBall with my comp, some kids from the ward, and Diego. We are going to try and get a zone game going on next week that would be sweet. Thanks for sending me the pics, I really enjoy getting them, and it looks like Clhoeee is getting so big. I am guessing that I will be able to get back here and be able to talk to her with ease. That will be weird.... Also....for real about Josh getting enganged???????? That is soo crzy. I asked him the other day in an email when he was going to get hitched and he told me that he had no idea....
But I guess things change right?? Also...GO YANKEES!!! Right dad??? haha oh and I didnt tell you guys this, but there is a sister misionary that is from....Boston. So we have our laughs with the broken curse and the luck they pulled off to win the playoffs. I am hoping that we do good this year. Things are getting cold up there? For here, we are getting better. Still cold....obviously cause we are here in the south, but things are getting better. Less rain, and a tiny bit more wind. The list is soooo big of the things that I am going to miss on the mission, so I am just making a list of the things that I WONT miss on the mission.
1. The rain.....
2. The dogs..... they also bark, bite, pinch loafs and make babies in the street.
3. The haircuts.....I got mine cut today, and lets just say, I am glad I dont need to impress anyone.
4. La cazuela... its a type of food here that...I wont miss.

I guess that is all that I got on my list. I love you guys sooo much.
Thanks for all that you guys do. Things are going great with my comp.....we get along great and have a lot of fun. I am going to have to show you guys what we did with our house next week. Lets just say we are very smart missionarys...... Have a great week!!!!!

p.s. I am going to write Grandma here so if you could tell her or give it to her that would be great.


Well has been tooo long! I just want to you know that I have gotten every single one of your letters. Thank you sooo much for your prayers and encouragement in the mission. I really have gotten your letters and the articles that you send me in the perfect time when I really need the boost. I reed carefully each one of them!!! Thank you sooo much grandma!!
I am happy that you are going to serve a misison again. If they could give me the chance to server again, for another two years....I would do it in a heartbeat. It was true when they said, there is no greater work than missionary work, and no other work that brings so much satisfaccion. I know that to be true!!! I couldnt count all of the spiritual experiences that I have had on my would be close to impossible. I am ending the mission pretty soon, but I am really focused and dovoted to end stong. it wont be long for when I will have to keep working in the missionary work, but only as a member.
Grandma I just want you to know how much you mean to me and that I am really gratefull for all that you have done for me. I am not very good at all writing, for that i have written seldom times. Please forgive me.
Grandma I will pray for you!!! Thanks for all that you do!!! Love you!
