February 24th - 4 ELDERS IN AN APARTMENT!

Glad to hear all is good in K-Town. So here is the deal the new companions.  They are sick... so far anyways. Hahaha!!  My new comp is from Monterrey Mexico and is Elder C.  Elder M.'s new comp is Elder R. from Honduras. We are all living together and its going good,  it's a lot harder because we have had to split everything in the area like investigators etc.  But whatever,  we had like 5 investigators in church altogether and it was awesome!  We are just working hard to find new investigators.  Our goal is to put dates with them and hope we will have at least three by the end of the week. Elder M. is ballin. I really think this change is gonna be good and I m hoping we will baptize someone. That's about it...we are just trying to work really hard and I am just trying to learn more Spanish.
I have taken money out of the account because we had to take some taxis and stuff for the new guys to get their bags.   Don't worry I should be good but also I took money out because a family in the ward makes suits and they have their own machines and stuff in their house.   My suit is super nasty now and the color is fading because of the sun.  But they are making me a custom suit for like 80 bucks aka like 95 pesos but its gonna be sick!  Blue and custom fit ...BALLIN!!   Elder M. is getting the same one. 
I got to go mom.   I love you all tons and make sure you keep me in your prayers!

All the missionaries from Mexico City South. 
This was taken when Elder Oaks came and spoke to us.

February 16th - YEAH!! I AM STAYIN WITH ELDER M.

The good news is that Elder M. and I  are staying here for transfers and we are both gonna train new guys... I think they are both Mexicans... Hahaha! It's crazy!!  This all happens Tuesday aka tomorrow. All 4 of us are going to stay in the same house still.  It's gonna be crazy cuz our house is sooooo small.  I don't know how we are gonna do it,  but I really do love Elder M. and he is probably  a close tie with Elder W... like for real I love them so much.
Mom, thanks a ton for the Valentine package.
We found a new lady this week in the street and she ended up coming to church with us.   It was awesome except she won't except a visit from us... I don't know why.  I think she is embarrassed of her house or something.  But honestly I am just super nervous because we hardly have anyone who wants to do anything and now we have 4 missionaries in the same ward.   I don't know what I am gonna do. Just keep us in your prayers cuz we need a miracle to start getting more people who want to progress. I feel bad just trying to find people and no one want to commit. That's honestly what has happened. We have had super bad luck with references cuz all of them are out of the area or like a street out of the area so we cant teach them.  We have worked so hard lately and I hope eventually it pays off.  If this is a mountain ... it's the biggest and steepest I have had in the mission.  But its ok we just have to keep pushing forward.  That's really about it.  We only found one new investigator this week and we worked super hard.  But I am not worried I trust in the Lord .
Love you all so much and thanks for all the support that you always give me.   Thanks Dad for the comments,  they always help and motivate me to be better.  I will work super hard like always and we will see what happens this week.  Love you all tons and know that your always in my prayers.

Adios aka hasta luego!

So this week was pretty lame except I got to hear Elder Dallin H. Oaks.  He came down to dedicate the new Mexico City MTC.   It was awesome and he hecka shook my hand and called me by name. It was sooo cool,  I havent felt that cool since being on the front page of the Deseret News for winning the state championship in soccer Hahaha!!  But after the conference I took Elder Oaks out for tacos and now he said I am gonna speak in General Conference when I get back... jk! I felt so cool.   I also saw Elder W.  and Elder M., I will send you some pics. 
I didn't find that many new investigators, but we are still working hard to find some more, that really is all that happened.  We have changes this Sunday,  I honestly have no idea whats gonna happen. Me and Elder M. are working super hard right just trying to find new people but not much is happening.  We are having troubles getting our investigators to go to church, but its all good you can never get better if the Lord doesn't give you trials.
I love all of my Hump Day package.  We didnt do really anything  exciting ...just worked!   It wasnt that great but i loved the package that you sent it was awesome.  If you want you can send me some more skinny gangster ties and stuff.
Love you and say hi to the fam for me!
