what up familia!

alright, so this week was better than last. didnt take much for it to be better, but yeah. i conducted my first district meeting this week, and we studied chapter 6 of preach my gospel, which is the chapter on christ like attributes. i divided it up the day before and gave everyone 2 attributes to study, and then be prepared to teach us about it in the meeting. during the meeting, everyone realized they were being total bums and needed to be better. they definitely weren´t where they were supposed to be, but there was a little bit of improvement. if we have a little bit of improvement, everntually we´ll gt there. 

so this week we walked to patillas almost every day. long walk haha. lost 6 pounds this week.. anyways, we found some of the less actives, and two of them came to church this week! that was way cool. good to see them there.

also, theres a 16 year old kid here named Newil, and he´s exactly like greg haha. it´s hilarious. he plays basketball, and we played the other day. i realized that latinos really arent that good at basketball haha. it was fun though. anyways, we´re working with him because we want to help him to get ordained to the aaronic priesthood soon. so yesterday, we went to his house to make sure he was awake for church. he wasnt haha. his grandma said yeah he´s tired. we said we came to wake him up! shes all like √§lright cool! his room is the first on the left. go ahead!   we went and knocked on the door, but nothing. she said is it locked(questionmark) here, move..   she grabbed this massive knife from the kitchen and picked his lock hahah  we woke him up, and he was super mad haha hes all like, are you serious(questionmark) ... dude, you have 15 to get to church, get dressed!   long story short, he came to church! ahh yeah son. it wa super funny. classic Gre, i mean, Newil...

what else. oh, saturday was a baptism! Joselito and Cheche, his 9 year old son. super cool. i evn made these super crappy baptismal programs. legit. i got to do their baptismal interviews on friday night. that was pretty cool. it´s cool to see people share their testimonies with you when they have been converted. the church is defiitely true.

also, if you need something interesting to study, check out the book of moses... wild stuff..  


 27 And it came to pass, as the voice was still speaking, Moses cast his eyes and abeheld the earth, yea, even all of it; and there was not a particle of it which he did not behold, bdiscerning it by thecSpirit of God.
 28 And he beheld also the inhabitants thereof, and there was not aasoul which he beheld not; and he discerned them by the Spirit of God; and their numbers were great, even numberless as the sand upon the sea shore.
 29 And he beheld many lands; and each land was called aearth, and there were binhabitants on the face thereof.
 30 And it came to pass that Moses called upon God, saying: aTellme, I pray thee, why these things are so, and by what thou madest them?
 31 And behold, the glory of the Lord was upon Moses, so that Moses stood in the presence of God, and talked with him aface to face. And the Lord God said unto Moses: For mine own bpurposehave I made these things. Here is cwisdom and it remaineth in me.
 32 And by the aword of my power, have I created them, which is mine Only Begotten Son, who is full of bgrace and truth.
 33 And aworlds without number have I bcreated; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the cSon I dcreatedthem, which is mine eOnly Begotten.
 34 And the afirst man of all men have I called bAdam, which iscmany.
 35 But only an account of this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, give I unto you. For behold, there are many worlds that have passed away by the word of my power. And there are many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are mine and I aknow them.
 36 And it came to pass that Moses spake unto the Lord, saying: Be merciful unto thy servant, O God, and atell me concerning this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, and also the heavens, and then thy servant will be content.
 37 And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The aheavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine.
 38 And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come; and there is no aend to my works, neither to my words.
 39 For behold, this is my awork and my bglory—to bring to pass the cimmortality and deternal elife of man.
