Letter #65 01/02/12 Happy New Year!!

hey guys!

this week has been so great!   woot finally i feel like i´m working.
elder quiñones and i had a super successful week.  we went with all
our investigators that elder faisal and i had and invited them to be
baptized,  and saturday in the afternoon we had 5 people with
baptismal dates. and things havent just been better with us, but with
the whole zone,  we been more interactive with them,  we´ve been
making calls and giving assignments to the zone and we´ve got plans
for activities the next few weeks to get things going here in

sadly, because of the holiday in the whole zone we had like 2
investigators come to church -- so all the baptismal dates are going
to have to be set back (you cant be baptized w-o 2 times coming to
church)    -- which is a bummmer, but its alright, i feel super good
about the week because elder quiñones and i are working hard, and i
know we just need to be patient and wait another two weeks to start
seeing the fruits of our work.

elder quiñones is a great elder-   he´s from durango, its a state --
but idk where in mexico it is.  hes taller than me,  he´s got two
brothers and a sister,   his whole family are members,  and i think
his dad served a mission as well but idk where.    he finishes the
mission here in february, and sometimes he gets distracted thinking
about the house, but i´m working to keep him focused in the work.  he
really want to finish the mission strong--   actually, in the zone we
recieved 3 elders that are going to end their mission in febuary as
well and they´re all super great,

my companions got a lot of experience, and he´s pretty creative too.
i´m learning a ton from him. we teach well together and we get along
well.   we havent had any problems.  we´ve got a lot of great people
we´re teaching -- a lady named m,  a family of 4 who´s a friend of a
member and is super interested
in the church,   a niece of a member in the ward who isnt baptized,
and a lot of others,   i knew there were a ton of people here ready to
receive the gospel-- and i´m excited that i´m going to start seeing
some progress here with the people we´re teaching!

also this week-   we celebrated new years with the elders from our
district-- it was super fun they all came to our apartment and we used
the cake mix you gave me to make pancakes.  but we didnt stay up till
midnight-- we were sleeping at 10-30 ha.
today we played soccer w- some members and missionaries,
its raining right now and i´m soaking wet here in this shop where they
rent computers ha, and i gtg,  but i love you and hope you all have a
great week,  tell jack and slater i love them tons--

elder lloyd

i havent had a chance to really read the emails -- but from what i
read-- thanks a ton for keeping my blog up, and i´m glad you all had a
happy new year
