April 4, 2011

hello mother and family!!! this week was great! each and every day we
had something nice happen, but right after the saturday afternoon
conference session, which was amazing, my companion and i went out to
do some contacts! we completed all of them and started to head to a
lesson that we had planned, we passed a small wooden house and said
hello and kept walking but then i had the feeling to go back. so not
doubting the spirit i turned right around and started talking to her,
she gladly let us in her house and we started off by teaching about
faith!! all went well then i asked her if she had any questions or
anything she wanted to say,.. yes, she says, i´m not baptised, i grew
up all my life with my family and never got baptised, right now i go
to the catholic church but like i said i´m not baptised and i want you
guys to incluide me in your church and baptise
me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What!!!!!! is was super sweet!!! so we got
all excited and started telling her that we will start helping her so
she can and that we gotta keep visiting her to help her know of some
things the lord wants her to do so she´ll be ready!!! it was
awesome!!! as of now were just waiting for the next appointment to
slam the baptisimal question and put a date down!!! gnarly

so hows that mother!!! i know you wanna hear from me alot more and
wanna know alot more about the mission life and i´m sorry that i´m
slacking!! i´ll try my hardest, its just sometimes hare to focus on
what i did and remember what i did while i´m typing cause i´m trying
to answer all the questions people ask me and try to respond back to
how well it sounds like all the family is and forget to mention a
little somethin somethin about the mission life but i´ll change
that!!! i´m a totally different person now, if only you could talk to
me to see for yourself!! you may think that i´m not a talkative person
like i used to be, but the mission sure changes a person and makes you
do things sometimes even if you dont want to!! its quite the growing
experience!!! i feel like i´m 40 years old taking care of all these
crazy bolivians!! time is flying here in the mission, i have been out
over 7 months now and the time just keeps disappearing!! conference
was super sweet!! pres. monson is a wise man! didn´t you notice how
much they talked about the temple and families, interesting eh!!! GO
TO THE TEMPLE!!!! we have one 5 minutes away and dont take advantage
of it, the one here is hours and hours away and people do the
imposible to get there!!! we dont realize how lucky we are!!! the
temple is the mediator between heaven and earth!! the veil really is
as thin as paper!!! well fam. i love you all and keep telling me good
love elder olsen
