Mission Scripture

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come.

D&C 68:6

hey fam how is eveyone doin? sorry i never get this email thing figured out so this may be another shortie. thanks for the letters and the easter package this past week. it is fun to get mail!! definitely a highlight of my day but it stresses me a little on p-days cause i have so many letters i still need to reply to. i love love the mini spanish PMG thank you so much! i wanted one of those! so h. fiala i have decided is crazy. she told me that she has been slacking and that we aren't working hard enough soo now she says no more lunch at home. we are packing lunches and eating them on the go. we arent doing our language study hour cause she says the best way for me to learn will be out with the people. we have appointments later today..yes on p-day.. its a good and bad thing that she is the way she is. well with all our work we had ZERO investigators come to church yesterday which was really sad for me cause so many said they'd come. we had 15 new investigators and none came! ugh. you have to come twice to get baptized. robertos baptism was for the 25-this sat but since he didnt come we will have to push his date back. also we did get another baptism date for like the second week of may i think his name is jose agular but i dont feel like its my number because he was taught all the lessons before i got here. all he has to do is go to church twice and he can be baptized. my new favorite poeple are all the young women in the ward. most of the speak fluent enlgish and spanish so i talk to them and a few come on exchanges with us weekly. they are really cute and i love them. i have no idea who that was that called dad last week. i didnt give anyone his number. this past week was hma fiala's bday so i bought her what she wanted......a $17 cheesecake... so much for eating anything this next week there went all my funds. ha jk i'll be fine. roberto and this lady he lives with, her name is yorhina shes like 60 and like a mom to him. roberto is like 40 and yorhina's husband died a few years ago so roberto takes care of her. well they took us out to eat on her bday and i had real latin food it was pretty good but a little strange. then we got a ice cream cake so that was fun. yorhina asked us a few questions about the church that night and we shared with her the restoration lesson so that was neat, usually when we go over to teach roberto she leaves as soon as we start teaching. this friday is zone conference and h. fiala signed us up to do a duet.. remember i dont sing? and now i'm singing in front of 50 missionaries. how embarrassing. i will bring my tape recordeer so you can all get a kick out of it. well all latin people do that kiss on the cheek thing you know like the girls do it to the girls so we always have to do that and its always the right side of the cheek so my right cheek is totally broken out from touching so many faces its kind of gross.. ok so something the rain here is so random. all the sudden huge rain storms come out of nowhere and they last 5-10 min then stop. and the whole time its hot out. oh it hasnt been too hot, just perfect and not humid yet. right now we are working to do member referrals cause the members in our area are poopie and never give us referrals. but the members in the elders area do. so we are working on that and hopefully they will tell their friends. oh a few days ago at this house this lady made us coconut water it was SO gross there were chuncks of slimey coconut flaoting around in it.. we drank all the water then put the coconut in our mouths then wiped our faces/spit it in the napkin and threw the napkin away. we have been eating at memebrs houses but its weird, they dont eat. they serve us huge plates then just watch us eat and sit there. i had fish once and another time to this day i dont know what i ate but i couldn;t finish it and the lady got really mad and is offended now. it was sick and at least i tried. the food is just weird. dont send the yellow skirt. only the brown and black ones but no rush. have fun in moab.. im super jealous. well spanish is still hard but i'm trying. thanks for all the prayers. i need them. hope all is well. love you all.
