Hey Family! I just love you all so much.
So we are finally done with all the busy weeks of training and transfers. Things are settling down this next week. Except for today, Elder Adams Birthday. We will be going to get Two "Super Gang" Pizzas at Pizzaro later. And Really Good Mango Shakes. I'm stoked.
I had quite the memorable week last week. I will try to tell you all what happened.
Because Elder Adams was training, I got to work with Elder Farnsworth in his area. Elder Farnsworth is the Mission Recorder. We went to this area, called Sooc. And I met this amazing family, the Villaneuva's. She is the most awesome lady. They have a family of 5 kids all really cute and all of them are really progressing. The mother has so much faith.The father is also a neat guy. We gave all the kids CTR rings. So the next time we came over the dad was doing really well and all the little kids were wearing the rings. They always tell us how grateful they are that the missionaries came to them. I probably won't be able to see them again because I am in a different area. But maybe we will be able to attend their baptism.
We visited the Enriquez this last Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday. I think it will be another week before we will go over there.
The other day we were over at Dave and Genavas Ramos's house. The two single adults and mother we baptized. The father that usually isn’t there when we visit, for the first time opened up and started to join the conversation. I was pretty awed that he had lightened up. The whole Ramos family are members and active gid kaayo (really active). We are hoping the father will continue to open his heart and allow us to teach him. The family is sooo strong and so amazing. Dave bore his testimony at Stake Conference yesterday and told everyone how he was excited one day to serve a mission and was really touched. The gospel has changed that family drastically. I will hopefully send you a picture of them soon.
Sorry I have to wrap this up. I will send a picture of me like you told me mom probably next week though.
I did open the two Christmas wrapped things. I couldn't wait. Thanks so much for them. Me and Elder Adams decided to buy Christmas lights for Christmas and make a fort in our room so it will be nice and Christmassy. I am excited to talk to you all again pretty soon.
Dad and Mom I hope all is doing well with you. I am so thankful for the awesome parents I have. You guys are such awesome siblings. I love you so much. I am so glad I am out here serving the Lord and want all of you to know how much I love you and love this gospel. We are so lucky to have the knowledge of our Heavenly Father’s plan for us and to know that He knows us personally and will help us in every aspect of our lives.
