Here we are again on another P-day. I don't know about you, but Monday seems to come around faster and faster as the time goes by. Oh the letter from Grandpa Kitchen got here! Tell him that I really enjoyed hearing from him, and that I loved the story that he shared with me. I'll have to write him back next week. Sounds like it was good to see Tyler and everything. Did his team win all that cool stuff? That's too bad that he'll only be there for a little bit, but sounds like you've got some fun things planned. I still think it's way awesome that Tyler and Cam are going to BYU Hawaii. Do they plan on going there for the rest of their college experience, or for just a few semesters? Mom, you'll get the regular routine down in no time. Didn't Grandpa say that by the 3rd year things seems to smooth out? I hope that's how it'll start to feel for you mama. Yeah that view is way cool huh? It's beautiful out here. Dad I'll let you know if the Red Iguana is authentic or not, but just to let you know, we are going straight to JCW's from the airport for some good ol American burgers haha. Yeah you're right Dad...I should lay off them tortillas haha.
This week went pretty well. To answer you question, yes we do have a ton of little towns in our area. Where we live and spend most of the time is here closer to the city. Most of the members live here too. About once a week we take a trip out to some of the towns where we have a little branch. The town with the branch is called Cacaloxuchitl which is about 30 min away. There are other towns about an hour away too!! It's pretty cool to be able to experience both. Luckily, we were able to teach a few of our investigators. We had an awesome lesson with the rich couple (Salvador y Cristina). We taught the Plan of Salvation and it went great. They also went to a baptism of another ward and then to church. In church we had the Gospel Principals class on Charity and Love. It was super spiritulal and they felt the spirit really strong. We hope to be able to put a baptismal date with them. Things just keep on rollin' here. My second son and I are about to finish half of the training process. This is the last week of the transfer, and we have one more left after this.
Tell Tyler to travel safe and that I hope that he arrives safe and sound. Have a great trip in St. George!! I love you guys so much. I miss you too. Keep up all the good work. Find way to uplift and inspire this week. I'll share this story that I heard a few weeks ago: There is an ancient sculpture of Jesus Christ that had been found many years ago. Upon finding it they could see that Christ's hands had been broken off and were no longer there. After much dispute as to weather or not they'd restore his hands before putting it on display, they came to the conclusion that they would leave it as it is....why? Because WE ARE HIS HANDS. Be true disciples of Christ. Love each and every one of you!! May God bless you this week.
Un fuerte abrazo!!
