...this mission, last month, had 590 baptisms for the Month of September!!!!! That is crazy!!!

Dear a group of persons who form a household under one head, including parents, and children,

(Yes I did just copy that off of to think of a title!)

HAHA, alright!! How are all you doing? Brigham you are old now Happy Birthday! Brody your too tall... Dad I am stoked for the business! Mom your amazing and keep pushing for school! 

Alright, so this week has been very interesting with lots of heart breaks and trials, but with lots of blessings as well! :) So I will start with SL. She is an amazing girl and is super elect! She was one of the College Students we met through the FHE at the Alajar Families home! She is super spirtually sensitive and is so willing to learn the gospel! She has been to church 4 times I think now. We decided to give her a Baptismal date of November 1st. Well she was hesitant the night we gave it to her (friday night). Later that night i had a feeling I needed to send her an assignment and 3rd Nephi 11 came to my mind! So I sent that through text. The next morning we had an appointment with her before she left for semester break. I asked if she read her assignment (expecting that she hadn't because it was late when I gave it to her), but surprisingly she did! She said it was an answer to her question! She knows the church is true and is getting ready for baptism! Well sadly this morning got a text from her that her parents aren't giving permission...... She is 18 so she can choose for herself but she wants parent support, so I am going to where she lives again in the bukid and I am going to nicely... talk to her parents! I have never seen someone converted unto the Gospel! She wants this so bad! After our lesson on Saturday morning she cried and asked to help get permission from her parents, and to keep praying that they will understand like she does! So please pray as hard as you can! We can use all the help we can get!

Sister M is pretty much the same story... She knows it is true and loves it, but she is terrified of her mother! When she finally got the guts to talk I guess her mom freaked... I am really fed up with parents ... She says it isn't her time to get baptized... I don't know what else to do! Please pray for her as well!! 

Zone Conference was really good! President told us that this mission last month had 590 baptisms for the Month of September!!!!! That is crazy!!! We are one of the top missions in the world (not to sound arrogant, but yeah!)!!! It was so cool to hear! We had a lot of good small and simple things President said we could improve on that will make us so much better missionaries! 

Well We are in a huge need of new investigators. So we went to this pretty far out area away from the city and you can just feel the good from it! The people were so curious to see us, as we walked they were interested! Probably been a long time sense the have seen any missionaries in that area! So we got some new investigators out there! We are going to focus out there tomorrow to really push the progress! Please pray to get this area into shape! 

Well other then that not much else has happened! Happy Birthday again Brigham! Miss you pal! Love you all! I miss you all to death! I am continuing onward doing all I can to keep focused please keep strong! Please Pray for us! Let me know if there is anything I can do or anything I can pray for all of you! I love you thank you so much!
