"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Hey Mom!

Things are going good here. The first day I got here, we went to a recent converts house. His wife was talking that maybe she wanted to get baptized too so we've been teaching her and yup, she'll get baptized next week. we're hoping to help brother get the priesthood in time so he can baptize his wife, that'd be soooo dope. 

General Conference was really good. I think one of my favorite talks was President Uchtdorf's about having a good attitude in days of tribulation. Also, I liked the quote from priesthood session, "if you try to chase two rabbits, you won't catch either one." I've been pondering that as I've been thinking and praying about what I want to do for work when I get home.

I can't wait to Skype you on the 11th of May. We'll figure out plans for that soon. We might try to Skype at this one member's house. We finally got to teach him because the dad's the only one who's a member, but he was less active so we're helping him return. They're chill though. Their son's my age and we're trying to become friends with him so we can teach him. I felt like I was back at home when I went up to his room. It is covered with skate stuff and his artwork. He's going to school to study the fine arts and so I'm hoping that he might let us teach him since we've got a lot in common. but The dad that's a member is an "artista" as they call it, a TV star. That's his job and they also own a resort, so it should be a good place to Skype maybe.

Hey Dad,

Ya, I'll leave at the beginning of rainy season, but I should be fine because it doesn't get bad until the end of August. That's when all the big floods always hit.

The work here is okay. It'a a lot slower than my last zone, but things are slowly improving. There are 6 elders and 8 sisters in our zone, Montalban Zone, which also is hopefully my last area. But ya, we just had our temple day earlier today and things are going good. We have a baptism next week. I got my update letter, so once my batch turns those in, we can get our flight plans!

Well, that's it! Love ya! See ya in 105 days!
