No More Bagginess

FEB 13 2017

Mahm y Daddy-O 

Hey how's it going? Everything here is pretty good. I got like 3 packages this week and it was Nathan and Audrey's birthdays. So that's pretty cool. I got the package with the sling shot, I got the package witht the lemon bars, and I got the package that Nathan and Joceyln sent.  So t'was pretty merry in the Elder Tagg house this week. 

Also we baptized Al...  and his wife. That was so freaking stressful, because both of them work really long hours, they live really far away, and they had to get married first before the baptism could happen. So we went to get them for their baptism at like 5:00, but we went a little early so that elder GH could do the interviews. So we did that and everything was good, but then we waited like 3 freaking hours for the lawyer to show up. In the end he copuldn't even come because of an accident. So our Bishop had to marry them like last second. a little sketchy... but all completely legal.  And then we baptized them. But after they had waited for about 4 hours. I felt pretty bad, but they did it and it was awesome. The only thing is that the wife didn't get confirmed this Sunday because her uncle died and she couldn't come. But we gonna get her confirmed next week of sho! Don't worry about it. 

But anyways we went mini-golfing this P-day t'was pretty freaking awesome! The place we went was probably like the nicest place I've ever stepped foot into here in Guatemala because it had grass! Like actual grass... pretty koool. 

Tell Audrey I love her and that she's a big one now .

love yous guys

Maham y Daddy O, 

How's evertyhing going?  ....Everything here is pretty awesome.  We're doing pretty good. This week was definitely a lot better than last week!!  No more Bagginess... and I haven't had diarrhea in a little bit, so that's a blessing. 

    We got some good work done... we are teaching this family. They already have attended   church and everything and they want to be baptized they just need to get married, so we are in the process of doing alll the things so that can happen and hopefully they get married and baptized this week. They are pretty cool. The Dad's name is Al... and the Mom's name is Fa... Pretty much all of their extended family are members of the church. Even their kids are members. I don't really know why the missionaries before didn't baptize them. It's kinda weird cause they baptized all the kids, just not the parents. But whatever. More baptisms for us haha. Please pray for them so that they can get baptized this week. 

This week we had a multi-zone conference and like two days before it Hermana Goodman called me and asked me if I could share a message. But I misunderstood her and thought I only had to do like a practice with her. I imagined it like inviting some one to church. But the day of the conference came and I found out I had to share a message with everybody not just like a practice but like a full message. Ha! I was a little nervous because It was in front of everybody and I hadn't prepeared anything. But I gave a good lesson on how to help our investigators keep commitments. It was actually really good haha! I started out with example I called out Elder Gayheart and had him try to sell me a pen, but he couldn't ask if I wanted to buy it. It was pretty funny. He couldn't get me to buy it, Then I related that to our investigators. If we never invite them to do stuff they probably will never even think about doing It. It's really important to just invite and be direct. Not like dancing aorund the question, just direct, then promise blessings. So that was pretty Koo.

This one's for you Dad: Pretty much all I know about the Gospel is in Spanish. Meekness translates to mansedumbre. It's an attribute of Christ that brings the spirit. In Galatians 5:22 it talks about the fruit of the spirit and how meekness is a fruit of the spirit. Also Moroni 8: 26 is a good scripture about being meek. That's pretty much all I know about that topic. Good luck on your talk. 

That's pretty much it. OHH and elder Rasband Is coming to talk to us on the 18 its gonna be dope! The first apostle I'll ever meet in person HAHA.

Love you guys
