I still don´t think i´m going to be able to send pictures, the computers here are so ghetto! the internet goes like a mile per hour.. Yeah sorry about last week, we didn´t end up having time to come back and i was super frustrated. But the quartet went really well! the musical fireside was awesome and the spirit was super strong. We have another one this friday night too, and we´ve invited a bunch of people so it should be great. About the glasses package, i wrote you about a month ago or so with the new missionary`´s name. it´s not cox, i´ll see if i can find it if i have time. but sending them now is risky anyway, wait until you come back from the trip because right now i´m not sure what mission i´ll even be in. We have transfers this upcoming week, and i´m really excited for a change. As much as i love my area and elder orcohuaranga, I can´t wait to have a new companion, and maybe new area and mission. But i think i´ll stay in campodonico one transfer more.. So to answer dad´s question, i´ll find out which mission im in next monday! Elder orcohuaranga leaves this sunday and i´ll live with the zone leaders for a day. Haha elder orco is super ready to go home.. and he´s getting worse and worse with the rules each day. he´ll make it alright though. I can´t remember if i said thanks for the package with the calendar and ensign, but if i did thanks again! the calendar is so funny and mom that was so so nice of you to go through and write all the days, etc. I love you!
Some stuff that´s gone on since i wrote last.. it´s been forever! We baptized Elio on the 7th of June, his birthday. He´s the same age as dad, and it was really cool. We also baptized his daughter, Yeruska, who is 19 and wants to go on a mission really bad when she turns 21. I baptized them both and hope i´ll be able to send a picture someday! Yesterday we baptized Luz, the most golden investigator of all time. It was a really spiritual service, and they are going to be such a great family in the church! So now if we´re counting i have had the priviledge of participating in 8 baptisms already! It´s been a great time here in Campodonico.
This last week I started having a handwriting crisis. First i changed to cursive, then to super neat normal handwriting, which i think i´ll stick to. It looks kind of girly, i still need to work some kinks out.. haha.
This last week we were walking in the street and i heard something come crashing down on the street so i turned around and a little old man had been pulling a bike-cart filled with bags of cement and it tipped over on his leg and he was yelling for help, so orco and i ran and helped him and everything. I felt kind of like a superhero, but a lot more of christ´s love and it felt so good to be able to help him. Then i realized that´s all i do now is help people with their salvation, what amazing work! I really want to send pictures, and i´ll try some more after i finish this letter, but i probably won´t be able to, i´m sorry!
Mom and dad everything sounds so fun in the summer there! And have an awesome time on your trip and be careful with your money. Maybe you´ll see austin saguibo in paris! He´s like an hour away from there though. And casey thanks for the letter, it´s awesome to hear from you and to get the sports update, even if the heat and mavericks, my two least favorite teams are in the finals...
I know the work i´m doing is God´s work. I feel it every day as i´m sharing the gospel with people. I want to be so much better, and just want to be able to convert everyone! it makes me so sad when people just don´t have the desires to listen or change. If they only knew how important this was for them and how much better their lives could be! I´m eternally grateful for having been born into the gospel, because who knows if i would have found it otherwise. What a blessing it has been in my life and of our family. I thank Heavenly Father all the time for my amazing family and pray for you all too! Have a great week
