How's it going in Olney? I hope you guys are doing well. Sometimes I get really focused or really baggy and don't feel like writing because it will just make me get un-focused or make me feel more baggy. Hahah it's a little confusing, like maybe one or two P-days out of the month, I feel like that and don't really want to write... Sorry. 

These last two weeks have been amazing though and I'm really sad to leave El Rodeo. All the people that I have met and friends that I have made... It's like leaving home all over again every time I leave an area. It sucks some major dog poop. I have learned a lot here and will never forget the people. I told all the people I said goodbye to that I was going to come back with a bunch of other white people to visit. Soooo we have to come back one day or else I'll be a liar. These transfers are really wierd though because my comp has more time than I do in the area, but it's what God wants I guess.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about the will of God, or what He wants me to do. I read the strory of when Nephi and his brothers went back to get the plates of brass. First what they did was ask Laban for the plates, which is what any normal person would do when they need something. Then when that didn't work they offered Laban all their riches to trade for the plates, which was a great idea which could have worked out fine. But when those two options failed they where like "God? What the heck why did you send us do get the plates if freaking Laban is a freaking punk who will never give them to us?" That is where God gave Nephi the answer, and finally he got the plates. Sometimes we have goals or things we want to do in life and we need God's help but we do it they way WE want to do it and don't listen to God and sometimes we even murmur because He hasn't given us what we want. But what we really need to do first is listen and follow what is His will, and then we will be successful. That's something I have learned here that we have to follow God's will not our own, and only then will we have success.

Last week we baptized 3 people and this next week we have three people with a baptismal date. MIRACLES. One of the ones that was baptized last week was an 83 year old man named Julio. We contacted him in the street on Saturday, he went to church on Sunday, and he was baptized two weeks later. Yesterday he was given the Aaronic priesthood. When he was baptized his body left water, and he laughed and said !Que Sabroso! (yummy) Hahah I love him. Then one of our old investigators that we stopped teaching called us out of nowhere and said he wants to be baptized this next Saturday. hahaha MIRACLES. 

I love You guys I'll let you know where my new area is next week.

I'll Tell You a Secret

Maham y Daddy O 

Hey guys! How's it going?  This week has been pretty busy but also amazing.  It was full of blessings, miracles, and a butt load of crap about the Gospel.  It has made me reflect on pretty much everything about me. What I have done when my life up to this moment, what I'm doing right now, and what I want to do with the rest of my life. 

It's a little difficult to think about the things I have done, and maybe I'm not completely sure what I am going to do in the future, but I sure as heck know what I am doing now. And I want to share a little secret with you.. I love It!! I know why I am here, what I am doing, and who I am doing it for. I may not have been perfect before, but now at least I know what I have to do to be happy, something I didn't know before.

But besides that, we baptized Ta... on Saturday. She is so awesome! The Sunday after being baptized, she paid her fast offering even though she is super poor. She is 18 years old and she has a one and a half year-old daughter named Ro... who is sooo freaking adorable... I love the people from Guatemala! I don't even know why, I just love them. We also spent the better part of two days this week preparing all the paper work for two families to be able to get married and afterwords baptized this Friday. So amazing....these people! One of the husbands of the families we are going to marry is named Ju... He is 83 years old and we contacted him in the street one day. And right there during the contact we told him we had a baptismal service ready for him and we challenged him with a baptismal date and he accepted.  Now he is going to get married and will be baptized this Friday.  He is an amazing example of faith, I love him. 

Also the members here in the Rodeo are amazing.  They always give us food, and help us out. I love it here, It has been a really awesome area.

I think you guys should get an Acura RDX. Jjust my thoughts, but I don't really know. Flubba looks glorious on that tree stump and the girls look good in the dresses. That's crazy that Drew has a broken ankle. Did he get a cast? If you want to loose weight for the wedding Maham, you should come to Guatemala and walk all day!  I wieghed myself the other day and I weigh 146 pounds.  That's like 20 pounds less then when I came hahaha. But if you can't come, just know your perfect the way you are. 

Love you guys (pictures next week)

I Love the Scriptures!!!

MAHam y Daddy O 

Hey guys this week was a week of miracles!!! We had a really good week, with 12 invesitgators in church woooohhhhhh with one family!!!! But we did everything possible to make it happen, worked super hard every day, even thouigh it rained super hard pretty much every day. We gave everything we had and the Lord blessed us abundantly. 

Some of the miracles that happened:
-An investigator named Mario intorduced us to his family and they all came to church.

- Mario, the same investigator, visited all of his nieghboors with us, and from them another 2 people went to church.
- The Rama Rodeo had 113 people in church!  The most they have ever had. 

So that happened and I started to read the Book of Mormon again and I found this scripture that I liked in 1 Ne 16:29   Y también se escribía sobre ellas una escritura nueva que era fácil de leer, la que nos daba entendimiento respecto a las vías del Señor; y se escribía y cambiaba de cuando en cuando, según la fe y diligencia que nosotros le dábamos. Y así vemos que por pequeños medios el Señor puede realizar grandes cosas. And there was also written upon them a new writing, which was easy to read, which did give us understanding concerning the ways of the Lord; and it was written and changed from time to time, according to the faith and diligence which we gave.  And thus we see that by small means the Lord can do great things.  

I learned a lot about how God blesses us. Amo las escrituras!!!  I love the scriptures!!!
