how are you doing mom, well everything is going o.k., this week we had a really rough and cool week at the same time. a lot of emotion, it was hard to cope with a lot of things this week, but we did see blessings at the same time so it was a little easier. this week there were a lot of people who were depressed during the season so they tried to not obey the word of wisdom. there was this one member that has been trying to drink coffee and we saw this huge tub of coffee on the table and then we had a lesson and he told us to take it. so we did. oh ya i also took another littler thing of coffee and i was in a lesson with another member and when i unzipped my backpack to get my scriptures and the coffee rolled out onto the floor and rolled for a little bit, but luckily no body saw so i was safe or they saw and they didnt say anything. the reason I have alcohol in my house is one of our investigators is really depressed and we told her not to drink it, so we took it, but that didnt help here. she just ended up drinking so much. she said she didn't want to hear any more about our church. i felt bad for her and i thought maybe it was because of us, but then i realized we did all that we could do, but she doesnt want to help herself. nothing will happen unless you want to help yourself. (this was the girl that was going to get baptized this sunday) I feel bad for her rejecting the gospel, but i cant help to not feel bad for her situation anymore. well that is enough complaining for one e mail. well this sunday was awesome. there was this lady who came to church the other day. (investigator) she came up to me and elder rincon and asked is this the jehovahs witness church. we said no, but we are in church services right now if you would like to come in. she said. i am allowed. so we told her yes and she was like well i will give it a try. so she went in and she loved it. then after that we gave her a tour of the church. she loved how we could have holidays and celebrations. she was like wow i almost joined the wrong church. She said i am glad i came to this church by accident. then i thought in my mind. this definitely was not an accident. God really does work in mysterious ways. Also it is getting so much easier to understand people and to speak it. it is still a struggle, but it doesnt hurt my brain like it used to. i think that this was one of the blessing by staying faithful through my trails. i know that when things are tough we will be blessed if we do one thing, if we follow and keep the commandments of God. it may not always be easy, but the blessing is always worth it. well mom, i dont have time to write another long e mail so if you could, could you send this to other people and take out whatever you would like to. well mom i love you so much, you are the best, sorry that i wrote a little earlier. i woke up at 5 this morning and i travelled for two hours to a different part of durango for p day. it only cost 5 dollars and i got to watch the mummy on the bus and the bus was so comfortable and the movie was in english with spanish subtitles and my comp was like lucky. well i have to go. i love you,elder robert shane atwood (your son remember)jk, you remember
