28 March, 2011

Hey how are you? I am well!!! I have some good and bad news for you. First with the good there is a family that wants to be baptized soon the (T) family but the daughter doesn't want to lose the cash flow of the grandmother. So we are working with them. Also the (M) as well but they still have a ways to go.

Ok now for the bad news. Elder Reynolds may be transferred this week we will see, but I hope not. I'll have to beg President to let him stay one more.
Well I don't have much else to report so until next week. Hay I forgot to tell you something I ate Baloot (Balut) last week and here is a picture of what it is it's a duck egg(embryo).

I think Eric had written another letter and forgot to hit send. He has done this before. bummer no real letter this week.

March 21,2011

I received another letter from Eric today
Her is what he had to say.......

ok I didn't do so well on writing things down this week but I did remember some important parts. Well about the "T" family, We had a very good member present with them and the lesson was on the book of Mormon. we left them a challenge to start reading it chapter by chapter starting from page one and the father was so exited to start reading he opened it up and started before we finished!!!! and also at church yesterday the parents were asked "when are you getting Baptized?" and they replied "soon, we are getting there!" so yeah Elder Raynolds and I were very happy. now the "M" family. we had a lesson with them last night and the mother told us that their son told her "Mom I want I tie, I want a black suit!" and then she said that she feels that we are being a great influence on him.

Well I must tell you that I am getting an addiction....... to a Mexican soda called Jarritos they are very good, and also to the food:) (: so its not that bad nothing I'll be sent home over. as for more news well we had plan to go to the beach and have a BBQ but it rained so we aren't going. well not much more to tell...... OHHHHHH I remembered there is a big Earth quake predicted here and Surrey is one of the areas that is supposed to be affected the most but Please don't panic all will be alright.

I love you my family and I pray for you every day.

14 March, 2011

well to start off they raise the price each year so for this year postage is just over a dollar a stamp when you get my letter (that I will be writing later today) you can see.

well as for my week there were a few things that happened (from Tuesday last week) well I don't remember much but what I do remember is... we have been working with two investigator families and one is very close to baptism.

I had my first exchange with an Elder Muler from Switzerland (his native language is German Diana:). We contacted a lady that said that we were a cult right after I said "we are volunteers form the Mormon church" and she said that we need to find the true God. well Elder Muler bashed with her for a bit.

We had the area 70 come speak to Spanish ward yesterday so that was really cool.

OK well today we have planed on going to Vancouver to go on a hike in the mountains near by but we will see how that goes.

I have been writing in my journal every night and I found out that I will run out of pages on Oct. 16th 60 days short of my year mark of DEC.15th so yeah that's about it for right now.

So how are things back home?? I hear that spring is in the air!!!! well here rain is in the air allot of it. but it's all good. I am loving it.

so how does the food differ from the Mexican food I am used to? It is way different. the food is all made by hand from scratch. this is a very good website And I encourage every one to make a profile this is mine I'm a Mormon.
this web site is a wonderful missionary tool please use it
