hola familia. well thanks for telling me about clark and mckenna. my comp elder peterson is from jacksonville so maybe he will meet his parents. well i am really happy right now. things are going good. although we havent had a baptism this month, we have been able to help a lot of people. there are some really awesome people here in the area. it has been super hot this week though. i am kinda bummed that there is no fall season so to speak. or at least not yet. this week he had to do some more training and it was great. we are going to be gettting a lot more sister missionaries and even some americanas are coming so it will be pretty crazy. just a whole lot more estrogen haha. as far as any cool stories this week...well we were talking a lot with the president and his wife ( she took us to costco 2 times to buy tables and i bought a watch because my old one broke but its a pretty good one that counts your steps and heart rate haha )and they were talking about the importance of choosing a good esposa. the covenants we make in the temple are so strong.  I am so glad that i am on the misson because i know that it is helping me to be a better person so i can be a better husband and father some day. i still have a long ways to go but this experience will help me. being a good parent so important. they can have a great influence or a bad influence on their children. thanks for always being a good example for me. and thanks for making the covenants in the temple so we can be eternal.  a family that is raised in the gospel is so much stronger. i guess i never realized that but now being out here i realize how many broken relationships there are and how many families that are messed up. i hope mc goes on one because she will understand the gospel a lot more and will be a better person than what she already is i was going to send some pictures but the computer doesnt have a slot for the memory card. i am using that instead of the usb port because the card can block out viruses from entering the camera or the memory card.  Also i am super super excited for general conference. i have been waiting for the opportunity to listen to the prophets and apostles. its funny because as you teach more and more about the apostles, you realize how important they are and how much we should appreciate what they say. try to listen to them in such a way that if anyone asked you who talked or what the theme was or what the prophet wants us to know, you could answer. it would be pretty sad if someone asked us that and we didnt even know. i think it would be a pretty good way to show that we are not thankful for a prophet and we dont appreciate what he does or i guess even what the lord says. try and listen they are so inspired and all that and i know that if you listen to them, you will have more direction in your life.   well i love you guys alot adios
