Hi Mom!  

Thanks so much for the package!  It was awesome!!!  The Reeses were the best haha. They lasted me a whole week.  Debbie is awesome haha.

We hardly worked this week.  We were in the hospital the whole week.  Elder Martinez had surgery. There still is a cool experience with one family, they are super awesome.  We spoke in church this week too, it was pretty cool.  I got a little nervous at the beginning but it was pretty good. 

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!

Hi Mom!

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.

So last Monday was sweet.  I told you about the family V whose son we are gong to baptize.  Monday we went over to their house for a noche de hogar (FHE).  It was awesome, we brought another family with us.  First we played telephone and then we taught about the atonement.  It was honestly the coolest thing in the world.  There was already a bunch of kids there then all of the neighborhood kids came over.  It was insane.  They were like, wow, you are a giant, and hey do you speak English?  I taught them all, it was so awesome.   Almost all of them were crying.  It was what the family needed, it was honestly the best thing ever.  I will have to get the picture to you later. 

Bye, Mom.  Love you.

Hi Mom!

I'm good!  We baptized Saturday.  I'm going to train... I'm freaking scared but I've got this. 

I'm with Elder Garcia, he arrived to the mission with me.  Martinez went home today. My new companion will be here next week.  

We baptized P, it was super awesome!!!  He was super happy.  His dad didn't go.  We visited them yesterday.  Hermano was super depressed.  He talked to us alone, he was just balling. He has addiction problems, things are kind of hard.  I'm going to try my best to help them .

This is our Zone activity.  We rode tandem bikes, we had a blast!!!!

 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"!!!
