Nov. 9

Okay, my computer went down, and I lost Elder Atwood's blog address, but I did a google search and found it that way. It was so simple; I don't know why I didn't think of it before. It was nice to be able to see Elder Brown's emails again.

hey mom,

well yea this is my new e mail. they gave me a new e mail because i was receiving a whole bunch of junk and it was getting really annoying. my president told me to tell you that if you are going to post my letters online, that you need to erase my e mail address before. I am not sure if you do or not, but i am just obeying orders in telling you. well it sounds like you week was really awesome this past week. or really busy. i am not sure, but that is awesome that the little kids really like Trish. It sounds like she is a really nice lady. Is she Rod’s age? that is good that she is really cool. it is really funny to think that logan is still really small, i think he is going to be like that for the rest of his life. i sure hope not. So when is thanksgiving? they really don’t celebrate it here so that is why i am not sure when it is. so that is pretty awesome i hope i get fat like everyone else in that time. that is weird how fast the time is going, the year is almost over with only a month and a half left, it`s just another proof that i don`t have time to slack off, and that i need to always work with all of my might. the other day I went on splits with my zone leader and i took him around my whole area showing him the people that we are teaching and showing them how they are progressing, and I worked him so hard that day that we were both just beat, we seriously didn`t want to move after that, but the next day we got up, and we both did some exercises, and i lifted weights, but i hadn`t lifted so much weight in a long time, and i got way sore. it was way funny. i really love doing those divisions though because i get to see how other people teach and i can learn more doctrine, and basically i love it because i learn so much when i do that. i always feel like a better missionary after. it was soo cool though, that day when we were teaching you could just see the people being touched by the spirit, you could definitely see it in their eyes. and almost everyone that we talked to that day wants to learn more, and we have a whole bunch of appointments this week. it is going to be way awesome. well before all of that, Tuesday they cut off our water and so we didn`t have water for a day, until i got tired of having to go to another missionary’s house, so i saw that it still had the water meter, all that they did was take out a tube and shut the valve. so what i did was take a regular hose, i put a washer in the screw in side and then for the other side i took the huge rubber workout band that they give us in the mtc and i put the hose in the tube and i tide the rubber band around the tube and hose, and now it doesn`t even leak so it is good as new. and now we have water in the house. so technically we aren`t robbing any water but we did get our water earlier than we were supposed to. so i did that and all is good. and then wedensday we were teaching alejandra and her son, and they were way excited to get baptized, but the day before her baptism she got way sick, and had to go to the hospital because her throat was so swollen that she couldn`t breath, so she didn`t get baptized due to that, but she is still planning on it. i think things are just going to keep happening until the baptism. i can really see that satan is trying to make her not get baptized. i can see it clear as glass. it is really sad to have to see her go through all of these trails, but i know that there must be an opposition in all things, she has been so happy in these past few weeks knowing us, but she has also seen some really bad things happen in her life, but she just tells us that she wouldn`t change them for the world. she is way awesome, but just needs a little help to actually make it to the waters and stay faithful in the church. but over all her intentions are really good, her heart is in the right place, she just needs to complete with her word, and she will be baptized. There are things that we are not going to be able to control, but we can always do the things that the Lord commands. well Jesus, the other person that we have been teaching is really awesome also, he is the one that went to choir and sings really good. the other day we went to his house and he showed us a disc where he was singing, it sounded almost like josh groban, but at first i didn`t know it was him singing, and then i asked him, who is this person singing, and he was like it is me, and i was just floored, i was like, why aren`t you singing professionally, and he was like i wouldn`t like to be famous. and i was like wow you sing really good. and he promised to give me a cd of him singing. after that we taught him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and he accepted to be baptized, i swear he is definitely ready to be baptized, he goes to choir by himself without anyone reminding him, and he goes to church, actually a little bit early, but he goes by himself without anyone telling him to go. he is really one of the elected. but he is set up to be baptized this sunday and his little kids in three weeks from today. i think he will be able to baptize his little kids, but his little kids are way awesome, we taught them the other day and after we gave them some pamphlets and they read the pamphlets that very second, like they didn`t do anything until it was all the way read. but it was way awesome, the only bad thing is that his wife really doesn`t want to listen to us. it is because she is scared about what her family might say, but i think with time she will start to see the blessing of the Gospel in the life of her husband, and she will want the same blessing in her life and she will be baptized, but only time and hard work will tell. well that is about it that was way cool from my week, i studied something this week that was way awesome, but right now i can`t remember what it is. i think right after i leave internet i will forget, but just to let you know it was awesome. when i find out i will write it down and i will tell you next week. so right now i don`t really have all that much time, but i love you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much. you are the best ever. sorry i didn`t write that much.
