Jesse E-mail - April 14

its sad to hear about great grandma Carter, but more than anything im glad she was able to read me letter. thank you mom for doing tht for me! im sure going to miss my grumpy mean ol grandmother:) but i know that when she goes, there will be tears on both sides of the veil. tears of sadness here and tears of happiness there:) she will be in my prayers. 
this week was very good! we were able to get alot done and we were blessed to find 5 new investigators! that was our miracle for the week! and theres even a family who is evangelico(not sure what that is in english) and they invited is back into there home tomorrow! we are also working with a less active family right now and we had a family home evening this last Thursday about unity in the home,and doing things together. it went very good! then we started with another less active family and they love the missionaries in there home. our main goal is to the investigators, but we also want to activate the less actives right now and get some more members in the chapel on sunday. we have around 30-35 in attendance right now so its kinda low but we are working with the members to get everything done.   
i had no idea that this weekend was easter! i knew there was going to be a holiday here but they are almost always different than those from the U.S. it gives us some really good opportunities to teach about the saviors life! there is alot that even i dont know that happened in his lifetime. but i dont have much time to study things too deeply at this time. we have been invited to just study the basics and know those very well because we wont be teaching deep doctrine to investigators. but today we had another zone activity and i hurt my hand playing soccer:P i was playing goalie and landed on my hand wrong. its swollen but i think it will be okay, the most the doctor here would do is wrap it up but im alright:P i just cant do handstands for a while:D ohh and i burned a pair of pants this week with the iron! haha melted straight through the fabric. so im down to two pairs. i have to sew another pair together because they got torn up in the washing machine. nothing else too interesting happened this week but it was great! i cant wait to hear back from you next week! i love you all!!
