Veggie Straws!

Dear Mom,

Hey guess what? I found veggie straws and I found APPLE STRAWS with CINNAMON! I am eating them at the moment. Super yummy! They were $1.63 for a huge bag. I have been waiting for them to go on sale for over a month. 

We have a mission thing to try to focus on service as well. We have been putting a huge focus on it. If you want there is a new Facebook page for the mission, it is called Al Servicio De Los Hombres, Al Servicio De Dios. It has a bunch of pictures of service and baptisms and whatnot. I think you guys would like it.

This week was great for work we found people still. We focused more on members this week. It was hard working too, we had interviews with the President and we had a huge meeting yesterday and we lost pretty much the whole day of work. We got home around 7 pm. The meeting was in Los Alpes (old area). I was able to see my "mommy" her name is Veronica Vasquez. She gave me a PB&J sandwich and I saw the old bishop too. The chapel was remodeled. We have a man named Fransisco Efrain. He is literally the most amazing man in the world. From a month of fighting hand to hand combat with people we have been able to find a man super prepared. He is going to be baptized on the 21st of March. He might be baptized sooner. We'll have to see. We now have 10 progressing and we had 27 lessons and a whole lot of love going around. We are getting work done. And I can't be any happier.

I love you guys. I hope that you all can have a great week. You are such great examples for me. I love you all. }

Elder Flake's Homecoming

The kids and I were able to attend Elder Flakes homecoming in St. George on February 8th. It was such a great experience to talk to someone who had seen my son, more recently than I had. When Victor was called to El Salvador, Elder Flake's blog was the first one we found. It helped us prepare for what was lying ahead for our son. We were thrilled when we found out that he lived so close! Elder Flake is super kind, along with his family and way taller than I expected :) I'm so glad we got to hear him speak. Well done Elder and welcome home!

Dear Mom,

This week was darn sweet. For the first time in a really long time we had 31 lessons in the week. We have been super busy. We have been going crazy with new investigators too! We got 18 this week. We have a man who has a baptismal date on March 21st.  We had to move his date because he doesn't have enough church attendances. He wants to be baptized now!

Guess who solved a rubiks cube 4 times these past 3 days! I have been trying to relieve my stress lately, Elder Arias left a rubiks cube for me. And I have been working on it ever since. I finally got it! I solved it this morning too. I just get stuck on a few spots. 

As souveniers go. I saw a jersey that I wanted that the bishop makes from soccer teams and puts names on it. I already have a couple of slingshots for me and dad. I saw one for Liverpool that I liked and one for El Salvador for Olivia that I think she would like. It costs about $30 for both together. Supposedly there is a spot in Ilobasco here that sells some cool stuff. I don't know how much it costs. Basically that for right now. That's pretty much it. If you could that would be nice if not, I understand.

Spanish wise, Mom, just go crazy speaking with dad. Don't speak anything else. Even send texts like that. Watch movies with spanish subtitles, learn a song in spanish (hymns). Label stuff. Use it like you need it to live. I wish the members here gave us more food to eat. We don't get too much at times. My diet is granola, frosted flakes, water and sometimes juice, but oh well.

The wedding pictures kind of wigged me out a bit. But that's good for them. Tell them that I wish them lots of happiness. I know that Storland will be a good man. And Mrs. Storland of course. Wow, that sounds weird. Braxton that stud. They should be a good happy couple for each other. I remember that in high school Kaitlyn had a huge crush on him. I guess that worked out good for her. 

I love you all. Keep up on the hard work!!!!
