November 17, 2104

Hey Mommy, how are you doing?? It has been pretty chilly down here in Zapata lately, but that's all good! I went to buy some sweaters today at Ross but it was so packed with people we just left. Hopefully I can get some sweaters this next week. I got your letter this last week with your conversion story, thank you so much for sending me that. I loved reading through it!! For thanksgiving, J already invited us to go eat with her and also one other little family of less actives have invited us over to eat also, so we should have somewhere to eat it looks like! M should be getting baptized this next week, he should be paying his probation tomorrow. Things here are going pretty good, it has been getting really cold here which I wasn't expecting, it has been down in the 40s a few days and with the wind it has made it real cold. So riding the bikes around all day has been a little miserable, but we have been finding people like crazy these last couple weeks. I think we found a new investigator to teach just about every day this last week which has been cool. We will be having another baptism in the lake this weekend, we have been baptizing like crazy down here in the lake which has been awesome. S, our recent convert got the Aaronic priesthood this last week which was super cool, so we have 2 active people in the church that have the priesthood now!! We also got a new senior couple down here too! They are senior missionaries from Arizona, she was born and raised in Peru though. They are pretty cool. They are the Strong’s and I think should help a lot down here to have a couple to help us out. It looks like I will be conducting the meetings now at church, because the couple that would come down from Laredo on Sundays, the husband could speak good Spanish but now with this new couple the husband doesn't speak a word of Spanish so it will be a little different! So during a lesson with some investigators this last week in a place in Zapata called Medina (lets just say its kinda a rough place) we were teaching them about the Book of Mormon outside of their trailer, then all of the sudden we have a cop come walking through our lesson then we look up and there are a bunch of policemen that are coming running down the street and the next thing we know there are police all around us! We had one that came over and told us what was going on and it comes out that the guy we had set up a lesson with for the very next day is a fugitive and had just wrecked his car into someone, but because he was already running from the cops just hurried and drove to his house and was hiding in the field somewhere right next to his trailer, so that cops came chasing him and were looking for him in his house in the field next to his house and they found them. But it was pretty exciting! We couldn't leave for a little bit but then they let us take off. We never know what’s going to happen there in Medina! haha. But we know we will always be protected here and we don't ever worry. Other than that I cant think of anything to exciting that happened this week. Thanks so much for sending me a little something, I always love getting a letter or something from my mommy!! I hope you have a great week! I love you!

Love, Tu mas guapo hijo
