10/23/2012 The weather is getting pretty cool down here now.

The weather is getting pretty cool down here now. This morning was pretty chilly. But it heats up fast! But the cooler weather is making it nice for bike riding.

And it is going to be weird with all new leadership in the ward and stake when I get back. Things change way too fast...

But I am doing fine down here. E' Seare left and I have a new companion, E' Espinoza, from Las Vegas. He seems pretty cool. I have only been with him for a couple of hours so I really can't say much right now. But this transfer should be interesting...

I don't know if I told you guys but we have the ASL  Elders in our zone. One of them is totally deaf. It is fun to try to talk with him, plus I am learning a little sign language. But the scary thing is riding in the car with them. Because to talk they have to take their eyes off the road and look at the other person to see what he is saying. Plus one of them is just a crazy driver.

I now have four suits. I got two three-piece suits from a donation store, like the DI. – (see one in a pic of E’ Seare & I)

And if you can believe me, I forgot my camera today. Sorry! I will try to get it here next week. Today was really busy...

Well I hope all is going well! Everything is going great here!

Love you all!!!

Changing Gears....10/15/2012

Everything is going fine down here! Nothing too exciting. But transfers are coming up so things will be changing up again! It should be alright.

We did have a stake bbq this week. It looked like a ward party to me. If our stake did one there would be a lot more people! And the weather has been amazing! It has been in the 70's and we are wondering what is happening. 

My mind is going blank right now... and again I forgot my camera... I will have to write a letter when I remember everything. Sorry...

But I am doing fine! Thanks for all the letters and all that!

Love you all! Love,

Baby its cold outside 10/9/2012

YES! I did get the salsa, but it only lasted me a couple of days! One thing you could add is some kick. (& it did have some kick to it) Maybe it had some but I am so use to having hot things, like habanero salsa, I didn't feel it. But it was really good and much needed! THANKS!

I did get to see conference. It was pretty cool that Tucson is getting a temple. That is one thing that I have been hearing a lot about since being down here. Everybody always says Tucson needs a temple... Now we are going to get one! And the change of the age limit for missionaries... That is pretty cool. There is going to be a lot more missionaries coming out now!

It is good to see that all is going well, especially in the office! The weather is pretty good down here, not as cool as it is up there but it feels great! I hear that it get down to about 60-70 degrees in the winter. That is going to be really nice!

Well I hope everything goes great for you all this week! I hope you all take the opportunity to be a missionary! LOVE you all!!!!

Wonderful Week? YES! 10/1/2012

I feel bad for everybody that was in the MTC. Luckily they are all leaving! It is so different from the mission field! But it will be fun to see all of them come home.

This week was pretty good. I do not remember if I told you guys about Elder Ballard coming to talk to us a couple of weeks ago, but it was awesome! He took the time to shake every missionaries hand and the whole mission  was there. When he walked into the room you could feel the spirit hit strong! The one thing that stuck out to me was when he talked about us having to have the desire to do the work That is something I have struggled with, but once I get into a habit of doing something it is so easy! It was amazing to have an apostle of the Lord come and speak to us!

Nothing too interesting happened this week. I did go on an exchange with my district leader, that was fun. I ended up with five new decks... But we did a lot and had fun!

Well, if I think of anything else I will have to write you guys! Everything is good; the work is going great and the weather is getting cooler!

I Love you all!!! The church is true!
