Hey family!


I`m glad you guys had a fun time with the fam. I miss everyone. I bet there was lots of good food:) The Mayer coupleis going to make us sloppy joes tomorrow. I am super excited. 

I am down with the Nauvoo trip. Tiff said she is trying to talk you guys into staying a couple extra days in KC with her. What are you guys thinking about for thta? I`m down :) 

I did get Deeners package. REmember I showed you the ties she gave me on christmas? They`re really nice ones. Good for Grandma thinking about skirts and stuff, maybe I can help them a little bit. That`s so crazy about all the homecomings already. Especially Shellie! I was  in the MTC with her. When does Layken come home? I ate lunch with her a couple of times in the MTC. And Katie Palmer too. That is nuts. And I am excited to go fishing. I`ve tried to go a couple times out here,but there`s never enough time on pdays to go. to bad so sad. 


Things are going well here in Adrogue. We are staying pretty constant with the people, gaining and losing people constantly. BUT We do have about three people who are looking good and progressing. _______ is so awesome. She is getting baptized on Saturday, and is super excited. She loves learning, and reads a lot. Shehas already read the whole Lorenzo snow manual that we just got like two weeks ago. And she has read 7 ensigns and we have gotten her started well on the BOM as well. We told her for every 50 pages of the bofmormon that she reads, we`ll give her an ensign lol. Because she likes reading the ensigns a lot more than the bOM so yeah. But she is really smart, and knows the bible well so it`sfun teaching her. She has already asked when she can get her patriarchal blessing,and receive her endownments lol. She is on a roll. She even broke up with her boyfriend on Saturday, and she went to the temple with the ward temple trip to walk the gardens and stuff. She is awesome. 


Today we are spposed to have a zone activity and cook pizza and watch a movie. it`ll be fun. 

Well I love you guys! Tell everyone I love them.

Hey family!

This week went actually pretty well! We found some new people to teach and have our older ones starting to progress. --------- is awesome and came to church yesterday, and told us that she felt the spirit super strongly while she was reading the new manual of Lorenzo Snow. So she has agreed to be baptized on the 2 of Feb. YAY! That was a good day. And then to end that day, Marcela made is tortillas from potatoes and it was reallllll good. I am super hungry right now! I could use some lunch.

Nothing really too new. Just that we are good, and happy and things are going well! Ali is getting excited to leave, and Sara Mcquivey and jade leave soon as well! That is cool for them.  
Well I hope all is well! I love you guys a lot, and we´ll talk next week!

HEyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy family!


Howis everything going? We are doing well! Hot and sweaty. Today we are supposedly going to go to a barbecue in another zone. So we`ll see how that goes and turns out :) Play eem some volleyball. 

 We did have some luck this week though with finding new people, and with people progressing. We got two of our investigators to church yesterday so that was super cool. We did have to pay for the car to go pick them up... but it was worth it :) We told her we`ll pay the first time, and then she has to pay for it lol. But yeah. one is progressing and taking the lessons. The other one is  an evangelist but is willing to listen to us. We had a good lesson with her on saturday and she felt like it was good for her to visit the church, so she came. I think she liked it. 

This week we walked a lot. We are just looking for new people still and we just made a huge long list of old investigators and passed by them. But some invited us back so that was good. 

We also found some Jehovah`s witnesses who invited us in to talk and they just wanted to bible bash with us. We have another lesson with them tomorrow. Hopefully it goes well. 

So the best news of the week... I found cream cheese!!!!!!!!!! I am excited. Sooooo, to celebrate, I am making my alfredo sauce tomorrow night :) YAY!!! We are going all out and cooking dinner for the MAyer couple (the house we used to skype on christmas) and Imma make them  chicken and broccoli penne with ceaser salad and garlic bread. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I can`t wait. Although this week ALL i ate was pasta, but I can eat that alfredo any day. :) 

Hopefully you all have fun at Bear Lake! That will be fun to see everyone. 

Please tell grandma and grandpa thank you for the letter, and that I love and miss them so much and that I am so thankful for them and their support. 

Well love ya lots!!!!

Hey family!

So today was amazing, we all got to go to the temple! It`s been a good year and 3 months since i`ve been in a temple. But, today it was in Spanish, so that was a different experience. I looked and asked around for the Rusts` but it turns out that they still don`t have their visa... so they aren`t here yet. But the worker that I talked with actually served with them in the Madrid temple for a year and a half. That was cool to talk to him for a while. I would like to go to the temple with you guys when we come back. It would be fun for you to do it in Spanish :)  I think you can do it in English if you give them a heads up. But that would be fun. 

I had no idea that they were going to Hawaii! That would be fun :) I`m feeling the heat... lol. But it would be nice to be able to go swimming a lil bit or something to cool off. 

For school I think just waiting would be best until I`m sure. Just because I can`t really make plans out here without taking too much time, and I don`t want to take time away for that right now. So I`ll just worry about itwhen I get home. Basin would be good, but I think depending on where i go, I would like to get out there and look for a job that I could make a little more money. It would be nice to find a job speaking spanish, because they pay a little more. WE`ll see though how everything works out. I think jumping in would be good for me, and I would like it IF I had all the decisions made... but I just still don`t know. So we`ll see. 

Nauvoo sounds good, and a little time with Peegerd. :) 

This week we finally found a new investigator! It has been a while. His name is _____, and we were passing his house and we heard country music in English, so we clapped the house. HE came out and we were just like well.... we like your music, can we come talk to you? He`s like sure! On saturday! lol. That was funny. He's really willing to give the stuff a try that we are teaching him. I hope he can find what he is looking for. He is a musician and when I entered his house, he had like 3 guitars, and a huge music sound system to record music and stuff. So we had a lot to talk about. 

That was pretty much our week. It`s all just pretty much the same! Just lots of walking and tracting. But we`ll see how things go, and if they start picking up. I just realized after this one, i only have three transfers left! So the ods are that I either stay here until I finishthe mission, or I leave this next transfer and get a new area. WE`ll see though. No one knows!

Well I hope all is well!  Ilove ya all
