I'm glad I'm here. My comp was telling me even though we are not the most baptizing mission in the world, we have the most retentions. So the people stay in the church, when I think about it like that is so much happier to see that the people I teach and baptize, wont only change there life for that little bit then fall away again, but to think that these people's lives will forever be changed because I was there to let the Lord change their lives. Its pretty cool. Juan is so awesome, he said he is thinking about going on a mission. I really cant think of a better missionary than the one that Juan would be. Everyone loves Juan and he loves them, so you know on the mission that will only be multiplied and he would change so many peoples lives. (Juan is a friend from home who Mason baptized) I am working as hard as I can. We live on this huge hill and we have to walk our bikes up it every night because there is no way we could ride it all the way up. Because we are both new to the area so we have to go everywhere to see everyone that we can.

It is crazy when people you're teaching a lesson to don't realize all that Christ went through, until you tell them and those are always good lessons. This area is cool, my comp is great. We are still getting totally used to the area because we are both new but we have a lot of lessons set up. Hopefully they all go through this week because last week we had some cancellations, but its alright the area is actually hotter then i thought it was going to be here and the bike i got one at a yard sale for ten bucks and then rode around for like a week had the back axle break on it, but we were walking home and this lady ran out of her house and asked us if or bike was broken and then she had her son work on the bike so three hours later with two new wheels, a new tube, two new tires, a little rack to put your backpack on, and the bike was in good shape. It is amazing how things happen and you know they are blessings, it is pretty sweet. The hill we have to ride up to go home, we can make it up it, but we only do it when we haven't rode our bikes all over town that day because usually by the end of the day we are pretty tired. One of the pairs of shoes is already destroyed. We have been trying to do a lot of work, we have three baptisms set up for next month and we have two more that we just need to set a date for and then a family of 5 that the dad is working on a Word of Wisdom problem and then they will be ready to be baptized. The area is pretty great.
