January 16, 2012 2 Nephi 9:18

Hey fam fam
love love your letters. Courtney gave me 2 letters. she wins. haha. i always love your letters mom and dad. always. The scripture of the week is 2 Nephi 9:18. I like it. Its for you guys. 
18 But, behold, the arighteous, the bsaints of the Holy One of Israel, they who have believed in the Holy One of Israel, they who have endured the ccrosses of the world, and despised the shame of it, they shall dinherit the ekingdom of God, which was prepared for them ffrom the foundation of the world, and their gjoy shall be fullhforever.
This week was kind of really sad, and good. first sad, satan will do everything he can to impede baptism, good, cuz we found lots of new prepared people. Hma Esthefany that we have been teaching, really opened up this week. She has really felt herself grow closer to the church and to God. On saturday she went to attend a baptism from some sisters in my district. She told us there that her parents are letting us teach her anymore in her house. Her dad is sayin, after she gets in to college in a few months she can do what she wants. But gosh she had a baptismal date for this saturday, wants to be baptized, and has a great testimony. It is just way hard for her cuz her parents are the opposite of supporting it, and she has to obey them, cuz she needs a place to stay. way hard, but we are going to try to offer service to her mom and do everything we can to talk with them. Our other date for this saturday got extended a week, cuz kevin couldn`t get to church by 8 yesterday, and he has to attend one more time before baptism. so kinda sad. but we found some other people that have been prepare by the lord, and i feel like we are going to start baptizing constantly, i just have to keep my faith in the lord. Being district leader carries lots of responsibilites, especially being over 4 sisters. but we had our first district meeting this last week, and it went really well. I have sister bell, sister gallagillos, sister sanchez, and sister eddings, two from utah, one from chile, and one from lima. they are all awesome and we are improving as a district. Today as a zone we went to this mall place. I felt like I was in the united states. ran into some members from utah randomly there. ate chinese food for the first time in forever. Sounds like you guys are doing good. I want you guys to attach some pictures in the emails if you can, maybe recent pics of jett, or the baptizm of delainey. This week I got some mail that came from the kaps, from the ward primary, and from mama. I read the whole 8 page talk from president tad r callister. and it was SOOO good. I wish every missionary could read it. i want to translate it and share it here haha. but 8 pages... I got to work with one of the asistants to the president this week, which was  really awesome. I also try to read the conference talks every day. There is so much you miss the first time around when you watch it through television. I exort you all to read the talk ^dare to stand alone^ by president monson, especially courtney, and those in their youth. sorry about the pictures. IM going to send you guys the sd card next monday. Im starting to forget some english. I love you guys so so much and thanks for your examples. Good luck dad with your missionary quest. use the book of mormon a lot with them. especially in jacob 1-4. where it talks about polygamy. Love you all so much have the best week of your life
