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

Friends and Family!!!
How are you this week??? Well I have been ok a lot has happened and I just am glad the Lord is in charge of this crazy world we live in. 
So i just looked at my families school pictures and I think my family we are all pretty good looking!!! I want top start off with Jazz holy cow I have only been gone 3 months and she has just blossomed!! Which is not good Jesse's not there to scare a way all those boys so Anthony scare them off with you super power "weirdness" lol But really Jazz YOU are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Minnie YOU are  BEAUTIFUL too. who gave you guys permission to grow up while i am gone i dont like it!!! Anthony you are just well Anthony and i mean that in all the nicest ways!!
Have I ever told anyone about how amazing my family is!!! They are!! Look at my Mom she is super women and her super power is to love unconditionally I put my mom through a lot and she just took me and loved me and look at how great i am jkjk  My dad is superman!!! and his super power is he can fix anything!!! Jason and Kelsey are the power couple and there secret power is that they can have so much fun Jason blinds people with his shiny bald head and Kels can clean there teeth lol
But really I have the best family in the whole wide world!!! I know I didnt talk much about my missionary work this week but know that I am working hard and that God is preparing people and I will find them soon.
I love you all and I love the lord!! I have been feeling a little alone lately but the truth is I am never alone!! Jesus Christ knows me and he is walking with me every step of the way. His Atonement works for everything Form a broken heart to a paper cut. Pres. Monson was telling us the truth when he said that Gods Love is for all of us and it is always there when we are happy when we are sad when we dont think we deserve it. God is our Father and He is very mindful of all his children I know this church is true and some day everything we go through will be made right.
Love You all
