85 degrees

Hi Everyone,
I hope Mariana had a fun birthday! =)
it sounds like you guys really did have a  busy schedule last week...
haha that made me crack up hearing Mariana picked a white dress because it looks like a wedding dress...lol David and Jaycee better watch out..
that's crazy about the coldness you guys are getting over there... over here im getting sun burnt with weather of 85 degrees.... lol i feel far away but not that far...and mom sorry i haven't sent pictures for a while, i just figure you´ll see me in a few months...lol jk
well this last week went great, we found alot of new people to teach, like 14. but the problem is none of them went to church...=( im not sad though i know we tried our best.
2 of them that were pretty committed to go to church, Alicia and victor who are in their 70s, didnt go because Alicia takes pills to go to sleep and she stayed asleep along with her husband... our church services start at 9... but we went back after church and we took them to an activity at night... it was like a fireside... the high councilmen for the mission work gave it, hermano Obregon... he made a list of ?s about the church and people could ask him whatever they wanted and he would answer them... he did a very good job answering and making everyone feel comfortable... they really liked it.. he reminded me of dad because of his calling...
we found Alicia and victor last Friday, their son was outside working and cutting branches and he let us help him... we helped him for about 2 hours and talking to him about the church while working... him and his parents where amazed at our willingness to serve... haha they said you guys don't charge?! and made more comments like the fathers in the catholic church never do things like this.. it made us laugh inside... but truly in my mission i have seen the most success comes by serving others..
they are really excited to go to church this Sunday...=)
well id better get going... i hope you all have a great week... Love you

hey family....=) and happy birthday Mariana!...
im happy to hear you all had a good valentines day....  and mom and dad I wish I could've heard your talks.
jacosa thanks for writing me.. i really appreciated it, i know im not the best at writing people back but i truly did feel special receiving that letter from you... it brightened my day!! along with the letters from mom and dad also of course...=)
well this last week went swell, we had zone leader council this last wed and thurs, which was super fun and spiritual... i learned alot about how important it is to study, and that when we study we really need to use it as a time to receive personal revelation... i really think one of the biggest traits i have picked up here on the mission is how to really study... i love to read now, and not just read to read but really read for understanding.. throughout my whole life i have been bad at studying, but im excited to put what i learned in practice when i get home.... im sure mom is pretty happy...lol
well the work is going good i haven't been in my area much because me and my companion have been doing many divisions with other missionaries in our zone... but for what i have seen we have a couple people lined up to go to church this Sunday, so I'm pretty excited...

Well id better get going but remember that i love you all and im always praying for you...

p.s i wasnt able to write you on Monday because today we went to the temple... i got to do iniciatorias... it was good to remember all the covenants that i have made with the Lord and all the blessings that come with keeping them...
Oh and thanks for all the pictures....=)
