Letters Home

November 14, 2008

So this last week I got called out Friday to go to Zamora, Morelia, and Uruapan. An all day drive. It was crazy. The offices are making me old really fast. We returned saturday at about 10:00 at night. On the way back there was a really bad wreck a little ways ahead of us and one of the cars was on fire. Great stories of the road. I also found dunken donuts on the way.
Also like I wrote to Megan. I translated for an hour this last week at a meeting from Spanish to English. That was hard but now I have found something that I think would be fun to do. If you want the whole story ask Megan because I sent it to her.
Now for my favorite part. This last Sunday Lourdes got baptized and now has the goal to be sealed with her husband in year. That would be so cool if she moved up there with him and then I could go see their sealing in Washington afterwards. Anyways that made my week and now we are working with her kids. In my other letter I will send you pictures. and also a X-am list hmmmm haha. I love you all a ton and Ill see you in no time

Letter to Megan:

Ok you know what my great story was for today? Ok well there are actually two. I will save the best for last. So the first is that this last week there was an important meeting and Elder Carlos ( a 70) was there. President was up front with him and there were a ton of bishops and leaders in the seats. Well a couple of those leader are from Aijijic, which is a place here in Jalisco where there are a ton of Americans and a large percent of them do not speak Spanish (don’t know why they want to be here but ya) So I got to sit next to one of them for an hour and translate. Possibly one of the hardest things I have done. I can understand everything they say in Spanish but to translate it and listen at the same time is really hard. I think I lied a lot haha. Actually afterwards the other missionary that was translating told me that he had to make a lot of stuff up haha so that made me feel a little better. But I now want to better my capability to do it. The other great news is we had a baptism. Lourdes got baptized this last week. It was awesome. We are now working with her kids. I was so happy. The Lord really blessed us.Ok well that’s all.
Love You!
