Jesús es el Cristo

My heart goes out to you all! I miss you a ton. Things here are pretty good. We've found a lot of potential investigators. On Saturday I had the opportunity to give out four copies of the Book of Mormon. We are teaching a few people. I hope that we can set a few baptismal dates this week. We'd be setting them for the 4th of December. Although I'd love to baptize people, I really hope I'm gone by then. This week I treated Elder Ricks to icecream from an icecream truck three times. First I got a Double Screwball, which is the cone with two gumballs at the bottom (reminded me of being a kid, we'd have to wait until after dinner to eat it). Then I got a Spiderman and a Spongebob. MMmm. And since it's been pretty hot here in the afternoons, we sit in the shade and eat them. Basically, we've done a lot of tracting and street-contacting. We've been pretty busy. Saturday, Elder Ricks exchanged with Elder Neilson. So I spent the day in charge basically since Elder Neilson didn't know the area. He'd served a year and 5 months in Spain. But his visa expired and couldn't get renewed. That STINKS. But anyway, I did all the planning and leading. It was awesome. It felt so natural. And I had confidence in teaching people and going up to talk to EVERYONE. Actually everyone. I'm a leader, not a follower. That's one thing I need to work on though, is following a leader. Elder Ricks is annoyed that I disagree with most things he decides. I don't do it on purpose. I need to work on patience too. Anyway, besides that, the highlight of the week was the Halloween party and Halloween night. The party was fun. There were A LOT of little kids. It was good for our investigators to meet members. And I'm sure their kids had a blast. We saw a lot of cool costumes: Phineaus and Ferb (disney channel), a Lego guy, Glinda from the Wizard of Oz, and a few other cool ones. Halloween night we had to be safe in our apt at 6 PM. Then we planned for the week. Then we played with play-doh for an hour. It was fun i guess. I can't wait to go back to the MTC. Oh yeah, sad story. Adriana (our investigator) dumped us. She actually said, when we stopped by, "I'm glad you guys came. I have something to tell you." She'd been anti-ed. So sad. That was the week in a nutshell. Elder Ricks leaves for home in 9 days! Crazy! It makes me think of how great that day will be for me in 23 months! Well, I love you all!!!! Keep the letters coming, because when I'm in Mexico, I won't be getting them!!
