that is insane that you have lost 20 pounds! send a pic when you can! thats a ton of wieght in less than a month! congtrats!
i missed a few days this week with the exercising so this week im going to amp it up. i did however go from 10 second burst to 15 second burst with the jump rope. the 10 second wasnt wearing me out by the end, enough. haha i think i went through withdrawls this week from the candy. i was way tired this week and i realized it was because i didnt have any candy. haha pretty stupid huh! but now im feeling a like i have more energy. now i just got to get the fat down! i have lost 4 punds so far also even with the fat i gained from the candy!
the lady that we found was last week had a date for baptism but couldnt attend church so we will have to change it. but it was because her mom had heart problems this week and she told us the she will attend no matter what as long as her mom is alright, but she didnt attend so hopefully it her mom is alright! But she is awesome! she told us during the lesson of the resturation that she believes this is true! she kind of bore her testimony when she said it so that was awesome! we also commited another guy to baptism that has had the lessons several times so that was sweet also! he wasnt able to attend sacrament because of work but he want to be clean from what ever he has done! so thats pretty sweet to!
Familia Sanchez is doing good! The Dad is one big fat drama queen so they probably aren't getting married but they are happy. we couldnt visit them this last week because 2 weeks ago we had lunch with them and when we left the dad said that he wasn't there to "support her elders" and when he left for work he didnt give her any money to buy food for the week. and i guess he has done that a few times since we have began teaching them in december. but most of the time he only leaves them about 20 bucks which still isnt a lot at all. that was a rough week for hma gabriela. so yeah to say the least that kinda pissed me of a little. so we have stopped teaching the dad for now but we will see what happens.
the training is over! and i am ready to using everything to bring people to christ and especially use that book (7 habits of highly effective missionaries)! we do need to find more people though!
cool experience with the spanish this week. so when we were having the party for elder villatoro a older couple from canada walked into the chapel and were a trying to find someone that could speak english. me and the the scramm couple started talking to them. when i was talking to the lady elder villatoro came over and i told him that they were from canada, all of this in spanish. and when i turned back to the lady to tell her that he could understand english really well, i guess i said it all in spanish. haha and i had no idea. i thought i said it in english. its was really cool to see the progress that i have made in these short 3 months in the field!
im going to print off you study thing and study it. also i realized how short a time a have to work for the Lord! with elder villatoro leaving i understand why people want to be missionaries and how 2 years really isnt that much time! i love the work and i cant wait to find even more people to teach! and finishing my training also just makes me want to work even harder!
i wanna go fly fishing in the mountains when i get back! thatd be sweet!
love you dad!
