Letter #97 08/13/12! Olympics!

Zone Conference

Trip to the Temple!!

hey family! hows it going?

Thanks for the pics you sent.  that back packing trip looked pretty
intense, i{m pumped to go camping this winter.    and that hammock
looked super awesome! i was a bit worried actually thinking about
where i{m going to hang up my hammock but i think that i{ll be able to
hang it between jacksons room and my room when i get back using the
pull up bars!  ha

as for what you wrote me in the letters,    yeah its been pretty
intense here with the olympics. everyones been watching them all the
time.  and even more the day of the soccer game! ha.  we were walking
down the street and we knew exactly when mexico scored because it
sounded like the whole city erupted! ha.  ---  as for the friend that
added me on face,  -- you dont know if she ended up getting baptized?
  as for the toe- its all good dont worry about it.   and as for the
package, i still havent received it, but in the next week or so i
imagine i{ll have it!

This week has been good.  We had the zone class tuesday.  it
was actually more weird than anything ha.  i{ll be honest.  i{ll have
to send you a pic.  it was good, but it felt like it wasnt prepared
well.   but it was good because i could see a lot of my friends from
the mission! there are like 20 something elders in the zone.  its
pretty big,  and i know a lot of them from when i was in Cardenas!

The good thing is that this week we had the chance to go to the temple!

one of the young men in the ward is getting ready to leave on his
mission and went to get endowed.  it was cool because we got to go
with him and while i was there i saw another young man from Puerto Real
(my old area in Cd. Del Carmen) who also now has his mission call and
was there the same day same hour getting endowed!!  super cool.
it was a neat experience because it was only the second time that i{ve
entered the temple since i got to mexico, and my second time going
through in spanish!!   it was good to hear again all the promises we
make and be able to feel the spirit there as we sat in the temple!

it was interesting though because when i arrived they didnt let me in,
because my recommend expiried!!!   that made me feel super old in the
mission.  i had no idea it had already expired.   luckily they just
called the mission pres and he let me pass.

other than that this weeks just been super normal.  we had divisions
with the zone leaders, that went well.   we have a lot of people
we{re teaching right now and i really hope that we can see them
progress before the transfers up.  we seriously have a lot of super
good people, and some of them have had answers to their prayers about
the restoration,  but they{re passing for a lot of challenges to attend
church.  it seems like every sunday all the walls go up so that the
investigators cant make it to the church... frustrating.    but we{ll
keep working strong till the end.

well hope you all have a great last week before school starts.
I love you all very much
