April 11, 2011

Buenos Dias familia!!!
How is it all going dudes!!! Well this week was pretty good, minus the
investigator part!! So we have an investigator named Rony who is 17.
We found him contacting one day and he fell in love with the gospel.
We taught him the first time about families and then we went back and
slayed the baptisimal lesson!!! He accepted his date for the 16th of
april and we continued to teach him meanwhile, lesson after lesson, we
taught him the word of wisdom and that was hard for him because he
smokes and drinks like everyone else here but he accepted to live it,
then we taught him about the law of chastity and that pretty much
killed him!! He says he has a girlfriend and….ya…. but he accepted to
live it and everything was going great until Saturday. We had his
interview and he never showed up, then Sunday came along and he didn´t
show up at church!!we passed by his house in the morning to get him
and his two little sisters came out and said he wasn´t there but then
they both told us “ were going to go to church with you “ a 10 year
old and an 8 year old so sure enough they came to church with us and
they stayed for all and they absolutely loved it and said they´re
going to go everyweek!! Kinda weird but hey at least someone from his
family is going, so we had to go back to his house and move his
baptisimal date back a week until the 23rd because we needs to atleast
assist 3 times to church to get baptized. But he´s still excited!!! So
cambios are in a week and i´m super excited!! I think i´m outta here!!
I´ve been in riberalta for 6 months so I think its my turn to
bounce!!! Well this week my comp and I completed all of our daily
goals which president absolutely loves!! We found a lot of new
investigators that I think will progress so hey, i´m not
complaining!!! The lord sure guides us to the people he has prepared!
Spanish is great, life is great!! I love the mission and want it to
last forever! Although at times it can be difficult, the end result is
worth it all!!! Doctrine and covenants 15 truly describes what i´m
trying to say so go read it!! My English grammer is getting horrible
because i´m speaking too much Spanish!!! Nice!

well mother i did end up getting your package and thanks!!!! that was
perfect!! the tuna was delish!!! and yes i do need some more things..
i was wondering if you could send me a new journal one with alot of
pages prefferably, mines starting to run out, also maybe some packets
of double a batteries, the ones here are not the best, and also was
wondering if you could send me back my sd card with all my pics from
the mtc on it!!! those will be it for now if you could do that i would
love you even more!!!;) ha!! well i love you all and i pray for you
all every day!!! i pray for bob so keep that faith up!!
love elder olsen
