hola familia. well this week was good. our bars still arent fixed but they will be i just pray a lot everynight and so far so good. we dont live in an appartment btw. we live in a house hahaha but yeah this week was actually really good as far as the work goes. we taught a lot of lessons. the only hard part is that our area is doing great but the rest of the zone is struggling i feel like i can do great things in my own area but now i need to help the zoon out as well. it will be pretty interesting to see what Elder Juassi and I come up with. we bought a football so we are going to play every morning. it will be pretty sweet. especially since i havent played for a while and i am sick of seeing so much soccer haha but as far as the work goes things are going great. well i guess i dont have a lot to write about. things are pretty tranquilo.
well could you guys send me the email of clark. id like to write him. and also dont forget to up´date me about the football. my comp got his updates on the donkeys and i couldnt do any smack talk because i couldnt say anything for the raiders. they probably lost anyways haha but yeah i guess that is that.

as far as an spiritual experience, we had a cool one last night when we were teaching a lady she was really interested but i felt kinda doubtful about if she would accept or not because she was talking about her Christain church a lot. well we invited her to repent and then we read a scripture that i had not planned to share before it is in Moroni 8 25-26. i was trying to find a way to connect repentance to baptism because she really wanted to repent but not so much on the baptism. i hadnt used this scripture before so i was kinda nervous but i felt impressed to share it. well it worked great because it was exactly what she needed. it said the thing like she needed to hear so i was glad i listend to the spirit. little things like that happen all the time. There are so many that i cant share them all.

well i guess i woud like to tell you guys to study mosiah and the story about the people of limhi and alma and the diference in how they were freed from there cautivityu. its in mosiah like 17 to 24 its a really good story. well i guess you gus would like to know that i told the horse joke as well haha my comp thought it was super funny....not haha i thought it was though.

well i love you guys a lot and remember that the most important duty is to do missionary work so always look for ways to share the gospel and use words when necessary. i love you guys and adios

mother my comp is from riverton. yeah his name is taylor pretty funny right. we hide the stuff in the folletos now because no one likes to read now. thats cool you got to take pics of trevor.  well i  love you a lot. we talked about mothers yesterday in church and they asked us to say something and i shared how you taught in primary and always sung the primary songs. love you lots

mc thats cool about the dance. always remember you are a beautiful daughter of God. all my comps say you are super pretty haha

daddy what happened with the scholarship. from what i was thinking, i might be home in late june if we can pull some strings for that. try and get those things signed up for as soon as possible because i dont want any problems. love you lots and dont worry about not writing i know you love me and i love you too.
