E-mail and Photos

Hola!  Thanks for the letter and the pictures!  Those are some pretty sweet mountain goats you saw there - looks like they were down pretty close this year!  And it looks like I am gonna have another warm week down here!  The weather has been super nice lately and I have been enjoying it a lot!!  Sounds like you guys have a lot of work to do to get caught up with everything there in the yard and stuff!  Sounds like fun :)  And thanks for sending the package!  I am looking forward to it!  This week was another pretty good week down here!  In the Mission they have been doing a big musical program for Easter and we have been doing a lot of announcing for it and everything, and making a lot of big advertisements for it.  It was last night and more than 1000 people showed up to it!  It was a group of missionaries from the mission that sing good and there were some videos and stuff  - turned out to be pretty good!  I have never seen a chapel that full down here, that is for sure.  President was pretty happy about it.  At least a fourth of the people were nonmembers so that was pretty cool!  We were able to bring a couple of investigators and they enjoyed it a lot!  This week we were able to see a couple more miracles happen in our sector.  Well last week I talked about a guy that came to church last week that speaks English.  Well he gave us a number but it turned out to be the wrong number, so we had no contact with him all week long.  We thought he was lost, but turns out he showed up again.  Said he wasn't gonna miss church for anything.  He said his parents were mad at him for coming but he still did it.  That stuff sure does not happen very much down here!  He is a great kid, and super ready for the gospel.  Also we have been doing tours of the chapel.  Every Saturday, us 8 missionaries from the ward open up the church and we give tours to people, and anyway the Hermanas did a tour with a lady, and she showed up for church the next day, that sure does not happen very often either!  She started bawling during the Sacrament.  I guess she felt the spirit, and she asked us if we could come to her house and teach her more about the church - she is super ready too.  We had been working hard all week but did not see many results, so it was great to see some miracles at the end of the week!  Always makes me feel good!  Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty good week!  I also had to give a talk yesterday for Easter.  I had to fill 20 minutes but it sure is a lot easier now that I can speak Spanish!  I remember back in La Islita when I didn't speak too good, and I had to fill like 40 minutes - that was not too fun!  It sure is nice though being able to speak the language - sure am more effective now, that is for sure! 
     Today we headed over to a place that has some great hamburgers so those are the pictures I sent!  It was some good food for once!!  It has been awhile! :) 
     I really am doing good down here though, and loving every minute of it!  I hope everyone is doing great and that you all had a great Pasqua!! I love and miss you all!
