hey how are you? i am doing good. sorry i havent wrote a letter in a couple weeks i have been very busy on p day (so much for p-day being a day off). well this is my last monday in the hillside ward, i got the call on saturday that i was getting transferred so i get to pack all of my stuff, which is always fun. this last 6 weeks went by really fast and its crazy that a new transfer is starting tomorrow. i wonder where i am going, its always cool to see where i will go and who my new companion will be. hope fully i get a companion who like to work hard too. the past few weeks me and my companion have been tracting a lot cause we are trying to get the work going in this area and so we have been meeting a lot of interesting people lately. the other day we had set a return appointment with a potential investigator, and when we went to go have a lesson with her. her husband came out with 3 Anti-Mormon videos and he tried to "educate" us on how this church is just a cult and how we believe in a different christ... stuff that doesnt really make sence if they would just think about what they are saying. when stuff like this happens its just adds to my terstimony that this is really christs church, because if it wasnt there wouldnt as many people trying to prove its wrong. it was really hard saying bye to people. unlike in my last areas, i guess i am getting more attached to people. i have had a couple people that they are going to miss me, cause i am such a nice and funny person. the thing that i think is crazy is in june my trainer and follow up trainer go home, when i came out they had been kout for 7 1/2 months and now they are going home in 3 months its crazy time is going by really fast.how is everyone back home? when does don go on his mission again? i have talked to a couple of people in this area that are from southern brazil around where don will be for his mission and they said he will fit in there cause most of the people have the same skin as me, so him too, the only thing is that he will be taller than most of them. how is del doing? when does he start training is it next week or the week after that? ill have to go look up kayties pictures sometime. i went on last week and got a couple of the pictures of me with long hair cause no one believes me when i tell the i used to have long hair so i got the pictures to prove it. :) well i hope everything is going good with you guys. i love you and you are in my prayers. crazy general confrence is this week, before we know it mothers day will be here.
Love ya,

hey how are you guys doing this week? i am doing really good, its week
5 of this transfer so next saturday is transfer calls and i will find
out if i am going to stay in this area for 6 more weeks or if i will
get the boot and go to a new area. yesterday at church a guy gave his
farewell talk at church, it was really good. he is going to
Chihuahua,mexico and reports to the mtc next wenesday. after church
his family invited us to have lunch with them at their house on top of
archibald. we went to it, and the only problem was we took our car to
pep boys to get the brakes worked on so we had to bike up to the
house. it was a really long ride and we were tired by the time that we
got to their house. it was a really fun time at their house but the
ride back to the apartment was really fun when we rode down archibald.
the work is going good in this ward is coming along. we had to stop
going over to a couple investigators because they werent progressing
or doing any of the things that we asked them to do. i hate doing it
but its for their good and dont want to waste their time as well as
ours. we have been trying to get splits going again, hope fully we
can do it. the elders quarom president and high priest group leader
are wanting to do it, hope fully we can get the rest of the ward
excited for it also. im sorry i have been slacking on writing back
letters i have been super busy and i havent had the time. for a couple
weeks i have been wanting to send a letter with a bunch of advice in
it for both del and don. but i havent got around to it and i feel bad.
i just need to make time on mondays and it should work out. this
monday isnt going to be like the rest since our car is in the shop,
but we are going to be doing service for a lady in our ward so i will
not have a whole lot of free time during the day. how is everyone?
well i got to go so one of my roomates can get on the computer to
check their emails. have a good week ill talk to you later.

i am doing good. this week has gone by really fast, time is going by super fast its really nice but at the same time its not. its crazy to think that i have a little more than 10 months left. its crazy. when i first came out here it seemed like it was going to take forever, but now the end of my mission is going to be here before i know it. i really like the ward that i am in, i have a feeling like i am going to be in the ward for 6 months just like i was in san bernardino. but well have to see what happens on the saturday before the 27 to see if i am going to stay for another 6 weeks or if i will be leaving. me and my new companion are getting a long really well, he is from arizona and he used to ride bulls before he cam out. the work in the ward is going good, its slow right now cause we have had to drop a couple of our investigators cause they were not progressing or keeping any of the commitments that we asked them to do. so because of that we have been tracting like a couple hours a day looking for new people to teach. havent had much success yet but i know that well be able to find someone and we have been also been going over to a lot of the members houses and teaching them the lessons, mostly the restoration, and after the lesson we ask them if they know any one that we can go over and teach, they are getting more excited about missionary work which is really good. thanks again for the food that you dropped off it helped me out a bunch because i had barley any food and there was still a couple weeks until the first of the month. but i survived the only had thing is that the rolls that you gave me before i was able to eat them. my roomates really enjoyed the cinnamon rolls that you gave me. the are good but they are not as good as moms cinnamon rolls. but i guess beggars cant be choosers. how is the family doing? hows del? i wish i could have been there when uncle george and aunt sherry went through but i will be able to go with them after my mission. i wish i could find someone like uncle george out here to teach. i hope that someday they will send me to bloomington. hope you guys have a good week.
