February 20, 2012 1 Nephi 3:7

This week was good. Hope You are all doing swell. I enjoyed getting your letters as always. Sounds like you had a good week. The scripture of the week is 1 nephi 3:7. 
 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I awill go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no bcommandments unto the children of men, save he shall cprepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.

This week was pretty awesome, we had interviews with the president as you have seen on the blog. I did get your package that same day (valentines day, how lucky!) haha dad made me laugh so hard with his letter. so much sugar and fat haha, but thanks for trying to slow me down. I always enjoy reeses and american chocolate for that matter. I gave my district the sweethearts. Sounds like rache is comin over today, thats cool, make her sing somethings shes written. haha. i sent her a letter today, but to the house, sorry I always do that, but I always forget to write her adress down, and when I have the chance to send a letter, I got to do it right then so I just do it to you guys cuz i have it memorized haha. But it gives you a chance to see her every now and then. Im glad courts is doing so good. I love that girl. Dad asked some questions, people do treat us differently, I've noticed they are always a little more interested when a gringo is there, with two latino missionarys not so much, at least in my old area, here it seems a little more normal. The people are a lot richer here in los cedros. and I have definitely seen the difference of the hardness of their hearts, even just contacting. But We are going to have a mountain of success here. I saw elder meza today in el centro. a kid that we almost baptized finally got baptized last week, which made me way happy, but didn`t make it sunday for his confirmation. haha. thats the worst. Last week we met with the man from afghanastan that was living in washington dc for a little. his english is pretty good. a lot better than his spanish, so we talk in english. His son Fardin who is 18 grew up in the states in washington dc and is not a member. We taught him last week. he also knows some spanish but grew up in the states so speaks english perfectly. So we taught him in english. That was like the hardest thing of my life. Haha. I was surprised but really im so used to teaching in spanish it was really difficult. But he is awesome, we got him to come to church yesterday and his friend is a member in the ward. He accepted to be baptized the 3rd of march. Dorris is doing really well i think i talked about her last week, but she should be baptized this saturday. She is doing awesome and committing to all the commandments. I love being a missionary and I learn so much every single day. I wish I had more time to write you guys, but just know I love you so much and I encourage you to share the gospel with people around you that aren`t members. Doesn`t matter what the result is, but just do it. Have an amazing week!
