Keeping the Work Going Forward....

Hello Family,

Things this week have been pretty good and we are enjoying all the time that we are receiving here in this area!!  Me and the comp are doing well and teaching many people and getting them to be progressing towards the truth and things like that!!!!  I am doing well other than being really tired all the time we are going great!!!  The area is picking up and we are having a lot of fun for the Christmas season down here so it is quite awesome!!!  We are looking forward to
Christmas and things like that as it gets closer as well as the new year!!  It is coming very fast but it is also meaning that the time is winding down very fast!!!

Anyway we have a great Zone and some great missionaries there inside of it for sure so I am excited for it to continue to grow and get better!!!  We are striving to keep things going and doing certain things to keep up the momentum going into the Christmas season and things so we will see what happens as the time is progressing!!!  Parker is coming home in I think three weeks or so, so it should be pretty awesome and things to see him come home!!!  Then Jemini will be pretty close behind him and then me which is interesting!!!  It is also interesting because there are so many new faces here in the mission it is hard for me to understand that most of these other guys are home already because I am now at the old stages of the missionaries!!!

Other than this the skyping will be possible for sure it will be in the morning time there for you but I do not know the exact time either that it will happen or things like that but we will see what happens!!!  I’m hoping that all things will work out that way!!  I get an hour and a half,  Or because I only have 10 weeks left maybe I just don’t call at all and we will talk when I get home hahahahahaha Joking mom!!!  Anyway hope you all have a great week love you all!!!

Still teaching and doing well...

Hello Family

I hope things are going good for all of you as it is for me here!!!  I am enjoying and having a great time here as well as the other missionaries and things so it has been good!!!  The rainy season and the air conditioning has been good as well it has been nice to have them in the flatte and in the truck!!!  We are doing a lot of teaching and as always a lot of running around the place taking care of problems and things which is always good!!!  The comp is good and we are enjoying for sure in the companionship!!!!   We have a lot in common and we get along pretty well and it is good although I have gotten along with a lot of my companions so it isn’t too hard!!!

We are teaching many as I have said we are hoping to get three to baptism very soon which will be very nice!!!  These people are awesome and are doing well they know the truth and want to follow it!!!  They have obstacles but so do we all, hope we will be able to get them to overcome those and move forward!!!!  Anyway the branch is good and doing well it isn’t really a branch it is really a group and we meet in a really small house we are hoping it will be made a branch very soon in the future because we want that very much to happen!!!

I don’t have a long time left but it seems that people are doing well there at home and are enjoying the bball and the Christmas that is always nice wish I could be there though Christmas is just not the same without the snow and the lights and the different things that go along with it especially the food and things hahaha!!!!  We have a few things planned here but not sure they are that many to start with but I am also not sure when but I will be skyping and things like that for sure hopefully I will get the time and then it will be good hahaha
Anyway I hope you all have a great week I did put some more photos on there!!!!  Love you all!!!!
