8/24/2013.  Elder Coffman and Elder Peterson at a Baptism.  


“Enrique. he is a great man with a sweet spirit. he loves his family and his wife has been waiting a long time for him to be baptized. i love completing families because then they can be sellado in the temple in one year and that is what this work is all about. its the best thing to see a family get completed.”

oh y para hermana aurelia, pues ojala que pueda leer ingles jejeje pues este es un hombre que bautizamos. el es muy noble. pues ojala que ustedes esten bien alla en valladolid. oro por usted y su familia todos los dias. ojala que esten yendo a la capilla todavia y que esten teniendo sus noche de hogares. siempre recuerdan a orar tambien. pues los amo mucho a todos ustedes. conozco una familia aqui que estan a punto de sellarse y yo se que esto es lo que Dios quiere para ustedes. la cosa es que el diablo no quiere esto asi que el va a poner muchos pruebas para impedirles a hacerlo pero se que ustedes nuncan se daran por vencidos. nunca pierdan la fe en dios porque el nunca perdera la fe en nosotros. este semana cantamos los himnos 202 y 42 y me hizo pensar en usteds. si sienten tristes cantan este cancion porque la musica es muy poderosa. son los mas potentes personas he conocido en mi mision y nos veremos en el futuro. adios

con carino, elder yayayaayayayayayayayayayayayayayayahhhh(;

Janel's Note:  With Stephen being very busy up at Utah State I just google translated the above Spanish part of Elder Coffman's letter.  Hopefully most of the words are translated correctly.

 oh and sister aurelia, because hopefully you can read English lol because this is a man who baptized. he is very noble. then hopefully you are well there in valladolid. I pray for you and your family every day. hopefully who are still going to the chapel and we're having their homes night. always remember to pray too. for I love you so much to all of you. I know a family here that are about to be sealed and I know this is what God wants for you. the thing is that the devil does not want this so that he will put many tests to prevent them to do so but you will be given nuncan up. never lose faith in God because he never lose faith in us. This week we sang the hymns 202 and 42 and made me think usteds. if you feel sad sing this song because the music is very powerful. are the most powerful people I've met in my mission and we will see in the future. bye

fondly,
elder yayayaayayayayayayayayayayayayayayahhhh(;
