Week of December 9th

Well, this week was a pretty exciting week. At least Friday, Sunday and Today. On friday, one of the members of the Quorum of the 70, President Johnson decided to visit our mission. He talked to us about a lot of things, but one thing that he said is that we are working among a promised people (the Lord makes many promises about the Lamanites in the Book of Mormon) and that if we were working hard enough and efficiently enough, we could be baptizing people every week. To do this, we started to open our mouth a bit more and talk to a lot of people on the streets, in public transportation (which we have to take a lot of), etc. It´s interesting talking to random people on the street because some people are just crazy. In Doctrine and Covenants 33, it talks about opening our mouths to share the gospel, so I hope that you guys are opening your mouths and sharing the gospel because the Lord promises that as we do so, our mouths will be filled!

On Sunday, we had an unexpected baptism. We had one investigator, Rafael, who has been investigating the church for 2 years and has wanted to get baptized, but he needed to get married to his girlfriend (who is a member) but works everyday except sunday and couldn´t find the time to do it. But this week, he found the opportunity of a quick marriage and he was baptized on Sunday (and I had the opportunity of doing the confirmation). Rafael is a great guy and i am sure that will always be an active member of the Church.

Today, for Pday our zone (of about 30 missionaries) went to a fish hatchery on the giant mountain in my area. It was pretty fun. One of the guys that worked there took us to a cave on the mountain, then we played some soccer, then they cooked us some fish (I really don´t know what type of fish it was, but it was good).

But yeah... Happy birthday again Kannon! What are Kannon´s plans for his mission, it is almost time! Glad that you all had fun climbing mountians... right now I have a mountain in my area that is a lot bigger than anything in California but I can´t climb it (well, at least not all of it)! But all is going well right now and getting a bit better a little bit every day! Thank you guys for the pictures you sent this week, you should do that more often. Les amo muchísimo! Espero que tengan una semana muy buena! (I believe that Dad can translate)

Hasta la próxima semana!
