Hey Mom, I liked conference a lot. I really learned a lot.
That is just what happens here in Guanajuato when it rains. Those are the Callejones of Guanajauto. We climb a mountain then we go down it. When it rains there are water falls.
F is doing good. We really haven't been able to see him for a little bit but we have an appointment with him. A is doing good. He is the 13 year old boy we just baptized. We have had lessons with him again. We taught R with Elder Beus, gosh he's a toughy. He has studied the Bible for a long time. He believes in the Book of Mormon but he doesn't think it is the word of God.
Ok, Mom. I am leaving now. I love you so much.

He didn't have anything to report today. His spirits were kind of low. They just had transfers and he is staying in the same area for a third time. He has loved it there and has said how pretty it is. It is really touristy so baptisms are few and far between. However, he has had 2 baptisms. He has worked so hard and ran out of creativity and is tired. But he is always so positive and said he will push forward and work hard.

This week was much better. We got some good stuff done and we found two new investigators. They are awesome and are going to progress very well. It really lifted my spirits. We also had a good lesson the F. It was weird, we were teaching him and couldn't quite explain what we were teaching very well. We were trying to teach them families are eternal so that they can think about getting married and sealed to their family. We weren't doing a very good job but then we calmed down and explained it well. It was interesting me and Monti looked at each other and said a silent prayer in our hearts and then Monti gave an awesome example that helped us explain everything.
One of our investigators is named C and she was a reference from the Sister missionaries. She is super interested and we are going to work hard with her. The other one is named E. She showed up to church by herself and we had an awesome lesson with her in the gardens of the church. The spirit was so strong. Her almost husband is a member and so we talked about them being together forever.
"You are good. But it is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must spread to others."

He didn't really have anything to report but I did get these pictures. They had dinner at member's home and they had soup. It is "normal" to put chicken feet in soup. He said he ate them. I asked him what they tasted like and he said "chicken." haha
On Friday we had another lesson with F and Elder Beus came with us again. We taught an amazing lesson. It was awesome! After the lesson F told us that he didn't have much interest in us and then we showed the video on Monday and he related to it a lot. He told us that he felt what we were saying was true. After the lesson Elder Beus told me something. With tears in is eyes he said, "Elder Bush that was cool, did you see that?" I said, "what?" Elder Beus knew that on Monday I was looking for a video and I chose a specific one. He said, "That video was just what F needed to keep listening to us. Elder Bush the Lord is with you" and then we both cried for like five minutes.

Well with this family, they were all inactive but we went to visit them this last week. They have a son who is 10 years old. He shouted at us across the street. He isn't even baptized but he's awesome! We went up and talked with the hermana and she was amazing, she was super happy. She told us that her husband is struggling with addictions and he wants our help. We have been visiting them often. their kids are awesome! Their daughter brought two of her friends to church two weeks in a row!!! We have been helping them. The hermano is awesome, he is really trying. I love this family!! We are going to baptize the son and continue helping them.
It's time to go, Mom. I love you guys so much!

I'm sleeping, don't worry. It's just hard work. Things have been pretty sweet. Martinez is awesome. We have been working super hard, lots of contacting. This week I have been overcoming fears haha. Teaching is getting better, we have taught some cool lessons. We visited a family that just recently got reactivated by us. Her sister moved in with them from Chihuahua. They talk funny haha. We were just teaching a simple lesson then all of a sudden everyone started crying. The sister told us that they are here for a reason and we answered their prayers. It was awesome. They told us that they asked for a challenge. They didn't give us too much info but they were praying for answers and we answered all of them. Then they bore testimony that we are angels haha.
Love you, Mom.
Hey Mom, I love you. Tell the boys I love them so much. I got to go.
These are pictures from Zone Conference. Hayden finally found someone taller than he is. In his words, "This kid is a giant! He is like 6'8"!!!
