I´m slightly jealous about the cold there, maybe we could work something out...you send half of it here and I´ll send half of the heat there...then it would be perfect!!! Let´s work on that ok:) So I asked the Branch President yesterday how much hotter it gets here compared to the last couple days and he said like 10 degrees, I may turn into a puddle before christmas. Oh speaking of Christmas I realized it´s still a while, but he said we´d be calling form their house, so I guess that´s one thing I don´t need to worry about. They are a great family, he´s the President, sister Torre is the sunday school teacher, their son, Mathias Torre is the Misional leader and gospel principle teacher and I think all three of them take turns teaching semanary. Crazy, oh and there are a family of four boys so our sunday lunches are quite eventlful and we usually side with Hermana Torre. Lot´s of fun.
So about Steven, I all most mentioned Elder Lowery in my letter last week but changed my mind. funny huh. He is actually in my district. Their area is right next to mine. Yes he is an assistent to the president I think this is his last transfer. I met him my first day and he is one of the few people I know. He is a really great missionary. Poor Hermana Gulbrandsen, she doesn´t know any Spanish, well very little, so he is the one that always translates for her. I´ll probably see him tomorrow at District meeting, if not that´s the building where the mission office is so I´ll get a message to him some how. Small world huh.
Excited for the package. I hope you get it sent off okay and all is good. Everything sounds fine.
Oh, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!! I can´t believe it´s already the dia de gracias. Wow. No, they don´t celebrate it here....it´s all about the pilgrims and native north americans. They know that it exsits though. So I hope everyone has fun eating turkey and things. Have fun up at aunt Janie´s. Hey, are you getting up early and hitting any sales as usual? Don´t let my absence hinder your favorite pass time :)
So this week was a really good one. We found 5 new investigators and they are all so good. One of them Freissy (sounds like fray-zy) is so good. She reads all of the additonal reading in the pamphlets we leave her and reads all the chapter, not just the few verses we leave, out of the scriptures. She is so cute and has a two year old little girl and another on the way. The next step get her and her ¨husband¨ legally married. We found this other family Gustavo and Augustina by listening to the spirit. That was pretty great. They are really good and even came to church this week. She listened to the missionaries over a year ago, but he didn´t like it. Well now he is more interested and is okay with her listening. He gave the closing prayer during our first lesson and he asked for the strength to be able to change and become better. So that was pretty great to hear.
So that´s about all I got time for this week. Off to buy a few things. It´s some new holiday here so everyone has the day off so the street vendors are out today, usually they are only here on the weekends. Yeah I guess Nov. didn´t have any holidays so they made some, cool huh.
Love you lots! Keep my updated about the family. I haven´t heard much about Scott and Betsy or Matt and Shiela. Dad how is work going, general stuff like that.
Love, love, love you!
