hola famila. so to clear up some things. elder juarez left caucel and now it is just elder peterson and me. i say t2o sons because my first son was elder oliver in valladolid. things are going really good here in caucel. we have had a lot of good people show up and we had another baptism. i am really glad i AM out here in the field. i love being a missionary. its really good way to learn more. i really like helping people have more faith because then they can have a lot better aspect on the life like it says in ether 12 4. i know that is really true. and the real reason why i didn{t write a letter really long last week was because i spent more time writing the people that really need the something. i know you guys are strong and i feel like i can do a lot of good writing other people... but don{t worry they are in our family  because it like when the Pharisees asked Christ why he was eating with the publicanos and the pecadores and he said the healthy don{t need a medic. but i{ll try to think of more things to say during the week i usually did that but these past weeks have been super duper busy haha but thats the most important thing. this week i really appreciated the principle of hard work that yáll taught me. its something necesary if we want to be successful and i really do love working. i well i hope you konw all is well and adios

mother thats interesting about the food. i wish we could eat healthier but i feel like ive made a lot of good friends here and they always give us food everytime we meet haha i guess they know i love to eat. well i guess its ok because now my comp and i leave in the morning to run every day that we don’t do service so its prettty good haha adios

michelle, you should read in d and c 63. it talks about signs and faith. ask stephen. he showed it to me a while ago. i{m glad you felt like that. one time i  was really wondering if i have a testimony too because i see how hard it is for some people to get one and all the stuff our investigators have to do to get one and i think about how it seems like i got one way easy and sometimes i doubt if i would be a memeber if i wasn{t born the way i was born in the church and all. but then i remembered that mother and daddy taught us from the beginning that this is true and right. sometimes we wonder if we really believe the stuff because we never doubted but like you said even one feeling can make us know its true.  and believe me if you see the way other religions are...even though there are great people they are just so lost. sometimes i feel prideful about our church because it is so perfect and i guess thats ok if i use that pride and my testimony to help others to come unto Christ and use it to help me to love them more well i hope that made sense. i dont like writing a lot because sometimes i read what i wrote and it doesnt come out the way i wanted to but i pray that you feel what i say. adios
