So glad to hear from you sorry for my short letter to you last week I didn't have a lot of time. But hey thank you for setting up an account for me that was really thoughtful of you! I don't have time to really do anything except teach and teach. That really is my life right now. I haven't figured out a way to use the money that Grandma has given me... But I am thinking of just buying clothes for some of the members that I see that they are in need. I am really excited for Christmas here! I want to see what it is like! Spanish is so much better! I still struggle sometimes but I have come a long way with my Spanish and I have a long way to go to! Always I am trying to learn new words or phrases to use! Sounds like your work is coming along just great! I hope all goes well! I will pray for your success! I am going to write a longer email to mother with pictures and such!
Well to start of we found a family way, way up in the mountains! We got lost multiple times! But eventually we found the house! We found out that they are members and that they have 15 people in their family! We are going to teach them this week on Tuesday! Also we found another family! They are cool we taught them a little in the street and we are going to teach them as well!
But last night we went to the stake center to hear the Stake President speak! He talked about the Book of Mormon and the power that is has in conversion of the hearts of the people! It was really inspiring and made me want to share the truth with all the people through the Book of Mormon! He also talked about that the members are the key to our success. If you aren't using the members to get references you are not doing your job! He said the easiest way to get a reference is through the members! Because they know the area better and the people! That is one thing that we have not been doing! Using the members! That is one thing that is going to change if my companion leaves I am going to use the members!
Today we have changes in our companionship! Either I stay here in my area or I leave my area and start fresh in a new area! I don't know what is going to happen but we are going to see! This week has been really long. But a lot has happened this week!

Last Saturday we had baptisms! We baptized 2 people! And there are more to come! I will send pictures in order to describe what happened! But the work here in my area is good! Always there is someone to teach! Not much has happened that I can remember my memory is so bad I can't even remember what I ate for lunch yesterday!
