Upcoming Visit From an Apostile, Headeaches and Possible Baptisms

Dear Mom,
Sorry about the account craze. We have to prepare all of our stuff like dry cleaning and shoe shine stuff and fares for travel because we are going to have Elder Quintin L. Cook at the temple in two days and interviews with President Glazier and we had to repair a burst pipe at the house. Lots of stuff. Olivia told me about her birthday. I am sad that I missed it. Arroz con leche huh? Nice. I will admit I am a bit jelous. I have been fighting with headaches this week, again. But we finally got an inactive member to church this week and another inactive is getting reactivated right now too. We have one lady that keeps saying that she wants to be baptized but she wont keep any kind of commitments or meet with us. It is super frustrating. Many prayers have been said and fasting too. But on the good part of it all. We have had the opportunity to find a whole lot of new investigators and families to teach as well. A couple new baptism dates have been set and we are doing all possible to keep them from falling through. I hope all of you are doing fine. Keep on working hard and being awesome.

Christmas Pics, Baby Food and Spiders!

Dear Mom,

I still have Elder Granillo, we just had a trio for a little while. Elder Edwards is now in San Patricio. Same zone, different area. I'm Still in San Salvador. Same area. We have gotten some new investigators and made some great progress with some less and inactives. This week was the only week that was really hard for me. We have literally done everything to find new people to teach. I have started to understand how the savior suffered. I have suffered so much this past little week. I have had my patience tried and my nerves fried with mean people these past couple weeks. I have felt a lot better these past two days. I have had the opportunity to meet and teach new people. We suffer, and we get blessed. I feel more of a real disciple of Christ. I am trying harder than ever to clean up my language and act. I can proudly say that I dont say my normal angry words when I drop something or when something scares me. I just scream like a girl. I still have trouble sometimes, but it is slowly getting better. I hope that all of you are still participating in the work of the Lord. 

Love all of you,

Elder Medina
 Elder Granillo and I had been sick. We decided baby food might be the best                                                            thing to eat.
