March 18, 2013

Hey Mom! Well it sounds like you guys had a pretty fun weekend of baseball in St George. I’m glad you guys got to be in warm weather for a while, it’s actually be really chilly here this week but yesterday and today its been starting to warm up again. It was awesome to see Elder Cook, Elder Maines Elder de Hoyos and Elder Johnson on Saturday. We took a picture with them and got to shake their hands. Elder Johnson thought I was pretty cool because he saw we had the same name. Elder Cook spoke to us in English and then a guy translated for him, and the rest of them spoke Spanish. It was amazing the spirit that was there. Elder Cook talked to us about he we need to overcome ourselves as missionaries and we shouldn’t be afraid to do things that we wouldn’t normally do as ourselves. He also gave us an apostolic promise that no matter what’s going on with our loved ones back home, if we have family problems, our brothers or sisters are going down forbidden paths or whatever is happening, that the Lord will bless us and our loved ones for our service and that everybody will be blessed for this sacrifice that we’re making. He also talked to us about ward builders and that we should always go the extra mile and be missionaries that everybody knows and likes. It was just the missionaries from our mission that were there, it was the first time our whole mission has ever been together during my time here. On Friday we had a baptism. Noemi, a 20 year old girl got baptized. Her uncle is a member and I’ve known her ever since I got to this area, but a couple of weeks ago she had a dream of us missionaries and ever since then we started to teach her and she got baptized on Friday. We also had 4 investigators that came and saw Elder Cook and Stake Conference on Sunday, and we’re hoping that they’ll be able to progress as well. Well this week sorry I don’t have too much time, but I hope you have a great week. Thanks for always keeping me updated and for all the pics and everything. I love you!
