hey everybody, Im glad to hear everybody is doing well at home. We had a pretty tough long week. The highlight was a new family we found coming to church yesterday. The dad has a pretty crazy work schedule, he rests for a month, then works for 4, so hopefully we can help him progress before he leaves. We have a lot of great people who can not be baptized because they have complications licenses or divorces. its really frustrating. It doesnt look like anyone will be able to be baptized while Im still here, which is a bummer, but the the important thing is that they will be baptized. The highlight of this week was meeting a man named Celso. He was sitting on the curb and we went up and started talking to him. He started to talking to us about just how sad and lonely he was, I just felt so sorry for the guy. But we were able to share some scriptures with him and invited him to church. He doesnt live anywhere close to our area, nor other missionaries so we couldnt visit him or send anybody else, but we'll give him a call later to see how hes doing.
We had the best service project ever this week. We thought we were going to help people move into a new house. But what we didnt know is that first we had to tear the old house down so they can build another one. So we just broke things for 2 hours. I really love the members here in this ward. Ive grown really close to them in just 2 months, Im going to miss them alot.

2nd Nephi 15: 26-30
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth; and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly; none shall be weary nor stumble among them.

27 None shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken;

28 Whose arrows shall be sharp, and all their bows bent, and their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind, their roaring like a lion.

29 They shall roar like young lions; yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry away safe, and none shall deliver.

30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea; and if they look unto the land, behold, darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof
