May 30, 2011 Letter
The email last week wasn't working so that was poopy. I printed out the email and sent it as a letter so hopefully you will get it soon. The Texas mail is retarded though so I don't know.
Well this week was awesome. We had another baptism so that was nice. The count is now at 16 baptisms for my mission thus far. That's almost 2 a month, which is way sweet. The family that we have next in line for baptism is the Gonzalez's . They are so cool. Right now we are really working on getting them some good friends in the ward. They would get baptized today if they felt like they had a good set of friends so we're working on it.
The work is going really well. My companion is going home soon so it's been kinda weird hearing him talk about the luggage situation and what not. I just have to worry about what I am going to say on the next door step. None of that trunky stuff for me. (Trunky is a missionary word to describe thoughts of home) My comp isn't that trunky at all right now...which is way nice. We still are working really hard.
So in regards to football for Ryan...pretty much he is probably going to have to pick choir or football in the end. Trying to schedule both is a real pain. I had a lot of friends who did it and I did too...but you have to be way disiplined with your studies. I say that you give him a trial period. If he keeps his grades up and can do football and choir...all power to the kid. I think that he could do it but he'd have to sacrifice some time with his friends. Probably would end up having a whole new set of friends actually. Maybe this is a good idea...ha ha ha. I don't know. Pray about it. That's what I tell all my investigators and it seems to work for them.
So this sweet family invited us to a bbq today for food and games and sports and guitar...it's going to be super fun. Their littlest girl Reese says that she is my girlfriend. We were over there for a family night one night and we went on a walk. While we were walking she reached over and held my hand...well actually it was just my index finger. Ha ha ha....just so you know this little girl is three. Okay well I have to go so bye.
