September 12 2011, 3 nephi 21:27-29

Beautiful Family,
Howdy. love your letters. dad makes me laugh every time.

Scripture of the week is 3 nephi 21:27-29.

27 And know ye that aye shall be bjudges of this people, according to the judgment which I shall give unto you, which shall be just. Therefore, what cmanner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even das I am.
 28 And now I ago unto the Father. And verily I say unto you, whatsoever things ye shall ask the Father in my name shall be given unto you.
 29 Therefore, aask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; for he that asketh, receiveth; and unto him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

Still haven´t got the package and im in trujillo right now and its not here either. maybe some day. haha. for moms questions, It´s about the same weather all the time. we had some rain this week which was awesome. but its only going to get warmer cuz your summer is my winter. i have been warm enough. the rain jacket dad sent right before i left the mtc provo has been awesome. I haven´t really been alternating shoes, i like the slip ons better than the tie ons. but i wear the tie ons like once a week, i think its a good idea to keep one pair lookin nice, for baptisms and stuff like that. yes i have to use the converter. if you want to send a primary song book that would be awesome, maybe a simplified hymn book too, because they want me to teach piano but they don´t understand it took my 11 years and i still can´t play the hymns perfectly haha. love hearing from you guys and can´t wait to see pictures of the baby. This week was really good. I feel like we are more in tune with the spirit, and that is the key. we had a ton of succesfull lessons, had 4 investigators attend church yesterday, and Ramiro, i talked about him a while back, committed to a date for this month, 25th of september. also a guy in milluachaqui for the same day. I didn´t even realize it was labor day today haha. i can pretty much understand everything now in spanish. still have a long way to go, but its nice to actual understand what people are saying. last week we had mission night, which we have every other week, it was fun, we one of those old book of mormon cartoon animated stories that i used to watch all the time as a kid. haha. and we had this trivia thing that elder contreras thought up that was pretty fun, had a big balloon filled with flour, connected to a bike pump. and after the question gets asked, one of us pumps the balloon untill they answer the question. haha it was fun to see everyones reactions. especially when the balloon popped. This same day, it was cool in the day we were walking somewhere and i said we should go to this lady´s house (who wasn´t in the plan or anything), just stopped and my tracks and said lets go there, we did, and when we got there she said she had been praying that we would come that day. definitely the spirit. yesterday i spoke in sacrament meeting. gave my first talk in spanish. turned out pretty well. i spoke on the forgiveness of others. i think that can be the most difficult thing for many of us. also we are going to have a branch choir that i think i am going to lead or teach. not sure. english class this week was a huge success. we had like 24 people come! thats like as big as the branch almost haha. so we had 15 contacts, and 6 referrals from the night also. pretty cool. did some service in milluachaqui this week also. i hope some day i can take ya´ll back here haha. but this week was good and i love the work, i love the people here and i love teaching. I love my district and the gospel and all of you guys. have a great week!
