Letter #37 - " courageous regardless of what people say or think..." - La Blanca, Guatemala

well hello

first of all i would like to say that i am quite disgusted with the superbowl......... that is very sad........ at least i didnt watch it haha.......... second of all i need to say that i am so proud of my cousin Jake who got his mission call to Norway!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is so cool!!!!!!!!!!  third of all i have proof that it is too hot in la blanca, if you can see that foto yes it does say 108 degrees farinheit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so yeah with all of that being said it was a good week.  we had 2 baptisms.  first was a 15 year old named eduardo.  his is super cool and already has a strong testimony of the church.  the second is named luis. about a month ago his aunt, a member, began to come again to the church after years without going. she always knew the church was true but because of problems with her husband she didnt like going.  she decided a month ago to be courageous regardless of what people say, or think of her.  upon returning to church she brought luis with her.  he now loves the church is now a member because his aunt had the courage to return to chruch.  

really we all need to have courage as it says in Joshua 1:9 

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the aLord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

as we do that by going to church and by inviting others to come with us we will be blessed and grow together.

 today we got word that there will be emergency changes tomorrow for elders keller and Delgado so i will be with elder walton for at least the next 2 weeks.   on tuesday eduardo´s brother and his sister in law (a very cool member) invited us over for dinner, we thought it would just be a typical guatemalan dinner but it was wonderful, delicious, huge, elegant, and worthy of the states.  as i was eating i realized that it was my blessing for you buying food for those elders a couple of weeks ago.  we have some way cool investigators right now and we just need to keep working with them so that they attend church so we can baptize them, and starting tomorrow i will have more investigators and i will have to see what i need to do for them.
well that is about all i have to say for this week.....

i hope you all have a good week and that my heels can keep winning
