Sounds like everyone is doing fine. Thanks for writing. Hey I got an email from Cole Hegerhorst, and Steve Clarke. That was cool. They just asked me about when I was getting home and all that. I'm glad you guys had a good anniversary. Yeah you should go do something when the house is all empty and everyone is gone doing stuff. That is so great that Jami is having a great experience on HT. I am so grateful for that trip. I experienced so much and my testimony grew a lot. I can't believe I went so all of those places. A few times on my mission as we taught and testified about the experience of Joesph Smith, I have shared how I have walked through the very place where the Prophet saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I often share how I was able to know with a surety that he was a Prophet of God. It is really cool to be able to share a unique testimony like that.
This week we had to go to Puebla on Tuesday to renew Elder Conrad's visa. He completed a year recently, and so now he is legal in this country haha. We are really good friends. It's been really cool to finish off my mission with him in this awesome area that I'd always wanted to serve in. I'm happy about it. We were able to see all of our investigators this week. The family with the two brothers who are going to get baptized are awesome! We love them. We are going over tomorrow with them. We are going to have a little family night type of message and then eat pizza apparently, should be nice. We've also been seeing Leonardo...mom he's the other one that should be baptized. He didn't go to church though, so we are going to have to help him out with that. He needs to go at least two more times before he gets baptized. Well Jonathan and Dulce (those that need to get married) are doing well. They have everything they need to get married, but they need to get a bit of money together. We've been pushing to put a goal with them, but they haven't decided yet. We've done just about as much as we can as missionaries. Lets hope they can get married soon. We really need to find some new people to teach as well. I need to leave the area good.
Well Germany won the world cup, not that America cares very much. Everyone has been talking about it lately here. It was pretty cool to be here during the world cup. I'm going to keep moving forward. They teach you how to be all prepared for the mission, but they never teach you how to end it...haha it's pretty weird/hard sometimes. I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON. Read it everyday please. It's amazing and we really should read it everyday. That's a goal I have. Say your morning and evening prayers. Pray as a family, and individually. Mom and Dad, pray together. It's the way we communicate with God, and it's so important. How are we with God? Let's do all that we can to feel well with Him and to please Him and serve in His church. I read Alma 5 the other day. Read it. It's really strong, but Alma spoke the truth. Love you guys!! Keep up the good work.
