Not-So-Weekly report of the kid upstairs.

Well, another week has passed and not much happened. Our work is going good but the people just won't listen. We are working hard though so we should be some success pretty soon. One of the families in our ward got sealed on Saturday and that was super cool. I didn't understand some of what the sealer said but I caught the just of it. One thing really cool that happened was they technically had not been married for a whole year and the rule is is that you have to wait a year. Well as missionaries we were not aware of the fact they had not been married a year so when the temple prez came in we knew something was up. He came in and explained the problem to us and said that he could do anything about it, which truthfully he can't. Anyways, you could almost see the sadness wash over everyone as the new reached their ears. And many of us bowed our heads in pray and as soon as I bowed my head some one opened the door and call the prez into the hallway. when he came back in he was beaming. The first presidency had given them permission to do the sealing. It was literally a miracle because most of this took only a couple of seconds. It was super cool. So yeah thats the biggest thing that happened this week.
To fill you in on what happened last week and the reason for the name may take a while. The apartment directly beneath ours caught fire. Nothing bad happened, but it was kinda scary. My comp had a thought to g back and as we showed up we saw like five Fire engines, he almost had a heart attack. Anyways that the big story. Love you all and hope for your success in whatever you are doing.
Love, E'Whetten

this week we had so many things to do and so many tings happened!!
the highlight of the week was definitely the temple, but we also did some intercambios and some breadmaking:)
like i said though, the temple was incredible, and for several reasons. one i could understand everything that was going on, and two i just felt so much more prepared this time around. the last time i went in i was kinda a newby and still didnt know anything and i didnt even really have a testimony of what i was teaching. its amazing what one year can do to somebody!! i received answers to some things in my life that i need to get resolved and the peace was unreal! i can now say that i have a testimony of temples and the power that we can receive by going to them! i cant wait till i can go regularly!! 
we have worked really hard this week and we are learning to just love everybody that we come in contact with!! one day we did divisions and put in 10 lessons in one day!! its not bragging though! its kinda like how ammon felt when him and his brothers finished there 14 year long mission from teaching the lamanites, its that kinda happiness. i know i didnt write a lot this time but i love you all and just know that i have a strong testimony of this church and all it does for someone who is willing to give his or her life over to the lord. have a great week!!!

Jesse - February 2, 2015

 thought i would throw in a little Portuguese in there for my comp:P another week down and now we've found ourselves in february!! i say it often but time is getting carried away now! this week was a little nuts with all the things we did but one of the funnest things that we did was that we went to a grave yard here in our area. i will probably attach some pictures that we took to this message if the computer lets me. the graveyard was really full though...with bodies i mean, dead ones. jaja we even found a skull while we were searching for a bathroom, that was pretty gross i think my companion touched it. 
as for the spiritual part of things the work is going great! this tuesday we have `planned divisiones with our lider misional and a young man who is preparing to go on a mission. its been really good to see the difference in the ward since Venancio and i started working together, we've seen a lot of miracles in just 3 weeks! now we only have three weeks left, it kinda sucks because we really get along and we make the work fun for us and for the people we teach.

another good thing that happened this sunday is that all the investigators that we have baptismal dates with, went to church!! yeah i know there are only three but it was still great! sabrina, ezequiel, and noelia! they are all progressing still and its good to see that in them. each one is different and has their own trials but we love them all. another blessing for me especially, is that my companion isnt dying quite as bad as elder cornejo was when he was going home!!! that has really been good on me and has made things easier. i just like making fun of him and telling him stuff to make him homesick sometimes but hes a great guy! not much more to tell yall but i do love you! ohh and my last companion, elder holmes is still in piƱeyro and said that he got robbed!! yeah he said his companion isnt as intimidating as i am so they got cornered and they got there backpacks stolen... But im still good!!!:) Chauuu!!!
