Umm hi family! Just another week that FLEW by! We are now in the last week of changes and what a week it will be! Let me give you a sample of a few of the things that we have going on! Tuesday o sea tomorrow! Divisions with Elder Arce for the last time because he has completed his mission, that will be a fun but hard time! So many memories of San Jorge and we have both grown and progressed so much in the mission! Also Friday we are going to have baptisms!!!!! We are going to baptize FAMILIA P!! They are just the smartest people so ready for the Gospel, when they say people are waiting and prepared for the Gospel that would be them. We were literally guided to them and now they will join the flock and be baptized members of the church this Friday. 5 of them!!!! A family, how awesome is that!?!?! We have grown so close to them and they are so ready for this change!!!!! Then Saturday, our converts from San Jorge are coming to the temple to do baptisms for the dead for the first time! So that means that we get to go and join them!!!! So me and Elder Arce will join them and get to spend time with them in the temple, should be an awesome day and an awesome experience. Ok now about this last week. Monday we went bowling!!!! and I actually surprised myself as for how well I did, I was at 121 with 2 more rounds to bowl but then our time ran out so we had to stop.... but look at how great my form was!!!

Umm hi family!!!! I am so sorry but I feel like that every day I come to write, it always is so short!! It’s because the busses are horrible and we are always late... and today was worse than ever, but I am writing you guys first so you should feel somewhat special. Umm this week WAS CRAZY!!! So much jammed packed into it. If I don’t get to write more I will just explain the photos! 1. We have a HUGE lot here where they are going to build the church in our area in like a year or two, well a whole bunch of grass and mountainous things were growing there so we did a huge missionary service project with 10 missionaries and we helped cut it... but we are gringos and can’t use machetes so we didn’t help that much... but me on the other hand soy chapin, y si puedo usar un machete, entonces ayude mucho... as you can see that is a huge pile we had like 5 of them that size!

FAMILY!!!!! Oh wow, honestly I say this every week, but the weeks are going by faster and faster, because this week FLEW by!! So we have a family that is progressing so much! I have never seen a family so READY for the gospel. They have received many spiritual confirmations that what they are doing is true. They are having a hard time with the Book of Mormon, because they were Jehovah Witnesses. So they went to go and remove themselves from their records and what do you think happened? Obviously they trashed talked against us and filled their minds with a whole bunch of doubts!!! GRRR!!! So we are trying to help them move along, but we have something that they don’t... the spirit. If it wasn’t for the spirit they would have fallen by now, but they know that it is true, we just have to help them along and help them. So the testigos (Jehovah Witnesses) say that they need to go to a meeting to remove themselves, but it will be the sister with the 3 leaders of the church, so they would destroy her with doubts and rumors about our church, so I offered to go with her.... to help defend her.... so now we have a meeting with the 3 top leaders of the Jehovah Witnesses and our investigator in her house..... Ya, I’m a little nervous to say the least. When the thought came to my mind I was fighting it, screaming in my mind "are you mad?!?! Crazy?!? what are you thinking Elder Call" but I knew that it needed to be done and I know that the spirit will help us, so I will let you know how it goes, we aren’t there to fight, Our main purpose is just to get her off of their records, nothing more and nothing less, I don’t want to fight, we aren’t here to fight, the spirit of contention is of the devil so don’t worry we won’t fight. But I will defend what I know to be true. So umm, happy 15 months!??! What?! Time is flying by too fast, I don’t like it. So we are still seeing little miracles every day, God is truly in this work helping us, it’s his work and I know that to be true. IT is raining basically everyday now all day every day, September is really the rainy season! But it’s not a huge downpour, although, sometimes it is just a light rain all day! Kinda gets old real fast. We changed our commodore this week (it is always awkward changing commodores) but now we are eating with the grandparents of the ward! And honestly I love it there! She treats us like her kids and spoils us! And cooks SO GREAT! And so healthy! I love it This week we watched the restoration video 3 times, I love it, every time I feel the spirit strong, I am so grateful for the restoration, I am so grateful that we have the Book of Mormon, that we have a book that contains the plentitud del evanglio (don’t know how to say that in English) that we have living prophets in the earth today. They are remodeling the computers where we usually use internet so we have to travel into the capital to use internet and the bus was late so our time is shorter than normal. Sorry this is so short but just know I love you guys so much!! I truly miss you all so much. The photos are of our golden family!!
