Dec 3 (late update from mom) Well we are at that time again!

Please forgive me this thing is terrible. I am going to start emailing in the morning. Anyway ahhhhh I forgot the cord to send the pictures.... nuts. Next week I’ll spend time sending pictures. P-days are busy days where you try and cram lots in and then you have to agree with your comp and it just makes it even harder to do all you would like to.

Anyway, so where do I start.  Well I had a very spiritual experience this Tuesday on divisions with a different Elder called Elder Montes.  He is from Spain but lost his accent completely. Anyway we actually had a couple of spiritual experiences. First, we went to an 18 yr old young man’s house who had been baptized recently 8 months ago to try and teach his sister. He’s super active and actually was a corto plazo (a missionary before the mission) with my comp for two days before I got here. Well when we got there he told us that he had decided that he was going inactive. We were shocked and so we sat down and had a lesson I will never forget. We asked him why and things like that. He said it was because he was a bad person. We talked about the atonement, about never giving up about how much god loves him. I cried.  My comp cried and so did he. In the middle of the lesson I had the weirdest feeling. I literally sat back and thought to my self as I listened to myself speak. I have already heard and said all of this before in my dreams the night before. I told everyone and I was amazed. After that lesson he told us he was not going inactive. He later sent us a message telling us that he had been kneeling asking the Lord to help him repent, to help him. He said that we were his answer. My favorite part of being a missionary is following the spirit and being the answer to someone’s prayers.

Wow, O have so many things to say such little time. Fast...... my comp has P90x.  We work out. We had a baptism this last Saturday and it was really great. Our ward is wonderful and it is working well to get things moving. His name is Alexander he is the brother of a recent convert. In the baptism President Heaton came to see our baptism and well the mom of Alexander is an investigator of ours and she had not shown up yet and so I went looking for her in the car with presidente.  Ha-ha, through some rough streets with his nice car super strange to use a seatbelt.

That is all I will have time for for now forgive me.  Typing is a weakness of mine I will be talking again with Skype very soon!! So you can ask me all kinds of questions then as well.
I just want to say I love you so much. Be safe and love the lord the hard things are what mold us into what god wants us to be!
