Running From Danger....

Hello Family,

This week was pretty well and we are doing good and having a good time here!!!  We had the 2 baptisms this week which was pretty good and we are working some others at this current time to try and get them ready for the baptism in future weeks!!!  It was pretty awesome and things are going good!!!  Branch is doing good and all is going well inside it!!!  We got to watch conference this week which was pretty awesome and things the talks were excellent and uplifting and the three new apostles will be great for sure!!  The comp is also good still doing the work and getting things done this side it is too bad that he will be leaving shortly but all is well!!!  People here are doing well and we actually have a guy at this point who is doing extremely well he is older and is an investigator we found him a while back and had been taught by many missionaries well apparently in the time that this was going on before we came this man has read the entire Book Of Mormon 3 times through an is working on the 4th knows Joseph Smith is a true prophet and can recount the story as if a 5-10 year old member extremely prepared and wants to be baptized it is hard for him to move because of knees but came this last Sunday for the first time awesome guy!!!!! We are working on him at the current time!!!!

The other story want to tell you and also want to make sure that none of you especially MOM freak out about it!!!!  2-3 weeks ago me and the comp were returning home pretty late from the area about 9 pm which is the time we are supposed to come home so it was normal!!!!  Well on the way home we were about 5-10 min away from getting to the house!!!  Well on the way there we were walking past a group of pretty big guys 6 of them with machetes and weapons of that sort!!  Well I walked past them not scared just strolled past, well on the way my comp looked back and then decided to run, it took me a second to realize what was going on and then I looked behind!!!  Well when I looked I saw these 6 men with weapons in hand running for us and threatening us to stop they were about 15-20 feet behind me when the thought came RUN haha well I took off as well and surprisingly I caught the companion somewhere up the road and we continued till home they were still behind us and things so it was pretty crazy we got to the gate pretty dang fast and it had to be record time you know running when scared is a lot different than when racing hahaha!!!  Anyway we got in the gate very quickly and things and then turned around to look through the peep hole in gate!!  Well the people chasing us got to where we should have been and started to look in the bushed and around our gate supposing because we disappeared so fast that we had gone off in the bushes!!!  It was quite an interesting night haha I now know what it feels like to get chased by guys with real weapons on the intent of hurting and robbing you!!!  hahaha That is the story of the week tho!!

I hope all will be going well there and things will be going good It sounds like the week was good and everybody had a good time!!!  I hope this week things will work out for all and everyone will have an enjoyable holiday there!!!  Love you all!!!!!
