August 7

My Family, 

This week has been a whirlwind. Between 8 new investigatiors and my companion dying of pain, its been a good week. 

The Soto family have baptismal dates for the 19th of august, and are progressing very well. The Mendoza family is also progressing very well. The work is moving forward. 

Friday was a dark day though, upon returning home after the district meeting and lunch, my companion was very very very much in pain. Hermana Moreno told us to take the day and let Elder Chota rest a little. He has not improved. In fact, th epills he was told to tak emade his very sick. So he and I will travel to the hospital everyday this week to get physical therapy. So that's fun. 

An upside to having a companion who can only walk very, very, very slow is that I am able to look around and enjoy everything a little more. For example, There are some very beautiful flowers near our house that I've never seen in more 3 months here, but on saturday I got a good long time to look and think about them. Simple, but amazing. I've also had more time to pet dogs and cats while we waddle around town. There's never a down side to more time with dogs and cats, calling each one cooper and mishu. 

I have done a lot of studying this week and that's bored me, but it's all good. This week's message is in english, just because. It's pretty lame, but it's the best I could give. 

During lunch yesterday, I, being prideful, and boasted up in my stength tried to eat some jalepeƱos (we were eating mexican) to show a family that texans are strong. I almsot died a most lame death. But I lived, and it was a totally rightous expirience. 

That's all i've got thank you all for everything. ​

First things first, my voice recorder is actng up right now so i'm not sure if i'll be able to send the voice recording. i'll try. 

I'm working really hard out here and we found two great families this week. The Famila Soto and the Familia Mendoza. 

Fma. Soto: They just got here from Venezuela and are super excited to get out, but at the same time absolutely destroyed. They have basically nothing. We taught them the restauration yesterday, and they were very interested. I feel sometimes God gives us trials so that we will be more in tune with the spirit. 

Fma. Mendoza: We have a lesson with them tonight, but it's a family in which the father left and the mom is taking care of the 4 kids. They came to church and had a great time (i think). 

My talk went well. More then all I talked about Joshua 3:5 
And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselvesfor to morrow the Lord will do wonders among you.

I talked to the ward about inactives and missionary work. I think it went well. 


When he had 8 months in the mission (he now has 23) he fell on his knee. this whole time he's been holding up and not letting the pain get to him, but it's worn him down. we went to the hospital today and he may have surgery soon. We still don't know, but should be cool. 

I took a nap today, and got a haircut. It's going pretty well out here. we lost Jaeder, we don't know where he's gone...... but what happens happens. 

Miss you all, and thank you father for the picture of my son. He is still very ugly.

We only had one baptism this week, but we're looking to saturday for the next baptism. 

First things first, I have not been transferred. Neither has elder chota. It looks like he will finish his mission with me in perimetral. AND i get to deliver a great talk on sunday. so hyped. 

it's been a hard week. I got very sick on tuesday (more explained in my voice) and I couldn't work very much the whole week. I pretty much slept and went to the hospital to see if i had AIDS or something. I'm all good now, which is nice, but during the baptism I thought I was going to die. 


she cried, the entire time. She is very happy to be clean of her sins, and that she can now me a new person. It was a very spiritual expirience. 

I'm good, i'm looking for new people to teach, and I'm loving the mission. ​
