Jesse E-mail - October 14, 2013

alright so this week literally brought me to my knees. everything was hard to do. home and family  were on my mind and i tried so hard to put it all aside but i couldnt this time. so my knees hit the floor and just just my father know how i was and that i needed help somehow. i also prayed for and investigator to fall into our hands someone who was ready to recieve our message. two hours later we returned to the apartment to study but the natural man got the better of me and i slept for and hour and a half. i woke up and it was raining outside  just what i needed right? well we had a lesson with an investigator so we went into the pouring rain. the streets here suck and have already worn some small holes in one pair of shoes, my feet were soaked. and just before i turned my sadness into anger i remembered a talk from general conference and the talk that said if the bitter cup doesnt pass,drink it and move on. something like that:P haha my heavenly father loves me because almost instantly i was happy and was literally jumping in puddles because lets face it there wasnt anything i could do about it, so being me i enjoyed it and even found out my companion is deathly afraid of frogs hahahah so i picked one up and chased him with it haha blessing are everywhere!! thats just one of my stories:P

did i tell you we have 4 missionaries in our area now??!!  they are with us in our pension haha its so much nicer to only have half of our area! its massive without the other two! one is from peru like my companion and his name is elder pacaya!  and the other is from Arizona!!! haha we even know alot of the same people! his name is Elder Davis!  he is from saint david, and his name is tyler davis

haha we had a really interesting experience with a drunk guy!!:) we were late to a lesson with a member when we were walking past a corner with a man standing there. he said he wanted a message from god so we taught him a really quick 3 minute lesson and said we had to go and all this time he had my hand in a handshake. he went on to tell us that he was stabbed and even showed us! he took off his shirt to sow us and said he was unarmed and we didnt have to worry. we could smell the beer so my companion asked him if he had chairs for us to sit in outside he said yes and quickly ran inside. at this time something to my right caught my eye so i was looking at it and when i turned around to my companion he was half a block away running! i didnt know he had started running so he yelled and said vamos!!! haha so we ditched a drunk guy and he probably wont ever remember it!:D

its getting warmer haha and there's a lot of mosquitos  we get to email in places called cibers! where we pay for our internet use. and we have a baptismal date for the 27 of this month for the 9 year old:P
