July 23, 2012 Alma 38:5-6

hello family!
This week I got a letter from every member of my family! I love you all so much and thanks for the wonderful support! the scripture of the week is Alma chapter 38 verses 5 and 6. This past week was good. We achieved our goal as a zone for the month. the goal was 14, right now we have 17 confirmations and still have this week. Love hearing from you guys, first to answer your questions. pa asked if ive been sick. i have a few times in the mission not too serious, just little things. when i arrived here to huaraz I had a huge cold for the longest time due to the climate change. Elder Yat is still fighting the cold he received from when He arrived here. But right now im really good. Im looking forward to the resees that you sent. My favorite candy. We buy them here in huaraz in the center for really cheap. I can buy like 2 cups for like 40 cents. This week the traveling asistants which have both been my zone leader before, came to our zone this week. They are both from chile and are hard workers. both finish their missions today. good pals. sent some pics. we have been working so hard with this guy named seberiano this past week. we had planned to have his baptism saturday, he even passed his baptismal interview. he wanted to do it sunday, but then changed his mind and wanted to do it next sunday so his sister could come. I knew if he didn`t get baptised this week, he wasn`t going to make it till the next week without falling. But he refused and he decided next sunday at 10 he would do it. today it came to our knowledge that he drank yesterday. so we have to start the whole process over. its sad cuz Ive been working with him for like 4 and a half months. but we are going to keep helping him. changes were yesterday, my old mtc companion elder armstrong was just made a zone leader, which is so so awesome and im happy for him. I hope we are companions some day. Im staying here in huaraz for at least 6 more weeks. This week is holidays for peru. the 28th is their independence day and the 25th is aniversery of huaraz. Lots of people around celebrating and lots of cool things happening. I sent a pic. the biggest problem we have here in huaraz is that everyone lives together and has children without getting married. which makes it impossible to be baptized. a little while back we contacted a taxi driver who also does marriages. we arranged to have a big marriage in our zone. the requisites are hard but we helped the areas in our zone obtain the birth certifacates and on friday we had some marriages so that some more could get baptized. we are trying to put another one together for this friday. Overall life is good, i hope you all are happy. thats awesome that ty is getting off to the mish. He wrote me a couple weeks ago. Love you guys so much !
