hey hey hey mother and fam!! como estan!!
things are going great here in bolivia!! so santa cruz is like a state and beni is another one, riberalta is in beni and la merced where i´m at now is in santa cruz! my mission includes santa cruz, beni, and a little bit of tarija!! this week went good, we put a baptisimal date on two people and they both accepted for the 21 of may!! one of them is ervin and he´s 18 years old!! yesterday he came to church with us and liked it!! our ward is falling apart, there isn´t a bishop and the members are wicked!! i´m not sure what happaned but nobody wants the bishop so the 1st councelor is the guy that runs the church, so as for now there in process of finding a new one. sounds like the weather there is changing into summer and here in santa cruz the opposite, its getting to be winter and its getting quite cold actually, we had to wear our suits and long sleeves, cold! so the mission home is where you send everything, no matter where i am at you send it there and when they get it, they send it to me wherever i´m at!! sound good?? so hows the fam doing, today i am sending letters to you guys so be looking for it! hows all the aunts and uncles and cousins? one thing that always always helps us realize how much of a "nothingness" we actually are to make us humble ourselves and realize that christ had is much much worse is learning about the thing thats the most important... the atonement of jesus christ!! alma 7 is quite good, and i suggest that you read all of alma because he does a good job of explaining about the importance of life, ressurrection, judgement, atonement and the life of christ!!! alma was a great missionary and prophet, so start now from chapter one and just read, however the end of alma just talks about war after war but its still great!!! sooooo guess what, IMPORTANT NEWS, this saturday i will be calling home for a pre-call to tell you when i´m going to call on sunday, mothers day!!! saturday i will be calling in the morning here at about 11 a.m. i think you guys are two or three hours behind but dont go anywhere saturday morning!! kapish?????? this saturday i will be calling for only five minutes to tell you that sunday were going to talk!! so saturday in the morning dont go anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well i love you guys very much and we will be talking pronto
