Hello everyone back at home. This week was alright. It was an uplifting week that felt good and had lots of happiness but for the most part things went a little slow this week. The area took a little dip in the way it has been going before this week. Things have been getting better but this past week was, like I said, a little slow. But the work presses onward and this coming week we already have several good planned appointments.
I am sorry for not sending any letters last week. I got busy on Monday then I remembered that we aren’t supposed to write letters during the week so for those who have recently or long ago have sent me letters let me say that I am sorry.
This week we had birthdays for Mark and one of our investigators sons Isaiah (sp?). So it was nice to see them happy. This week has been a happy week although a little slow. It has been much cooler here this past week. It has been rainy and overcast all week. Reaching during the day about a high of 70 and a low of 64 so it has been rather cool. I feel more at home this past week maybe that’s why I think it has been so nice.
Our phone broke so we had to drive to the mission office to get a new one. All of our numbers were deleted so this week people would call and we would have no idea who they are. It made things a little more exciting. Our mission is doing well. Zone conference is this week and I am looking forward to that. Also Elder Garcia’s 18 month mark is on Friday. Mine will be one month from Friday. I can’t believe that time has gone by so fast. I feel like I just got here but yet I feel like I have been here for a long time. I am going to miss Rosenberg when I do leave it. Although there are some strange characters there are some really great people that I have become very close to over these past few months.
Sorry my emails are so boring I wish that I would have prepared something better. I think last week I said I would but I thought that the library was going to be closed today because it is Columbus Day but I was wrong and didn’t prepare anything. We are also getting our hair cuts today. I need one bad. My head looks like a wet dog. Anyways I love the work. I wouldn’t choose anything else to do than to serve a mission. Feeling and being led by the spirit are the best things that you can do and I just love it so much. I love teaching people and hearing their life experiences then being able to give them something from the restored gospel that helps them and leads them to the Lord. I know that my email is short but I am going to end it. I love you all and I bear you my testimony that I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the priesthood has been restored, that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was called of God as a prophet to bring in the dispensation of the fullness of times. I love you all and I hope that you have a good week. I know that I said this last week but I will definitely prepare something to say in my email next week. I can think of a few stories to share but without my journal they would be presented horribly.
