We totally got our package today so thank you guys so much! i didnt open them all but i did go for the pictures, treats, and letters and its funny that everyone of you sent me something about washington and im glad i got them this week to be honest beacuse this is my last week in Vallejo and then i will be changed to my final area to finish the mission crazy right? 3 transfers left! thats nothing.... Hey i have some news...hopefully mom wont hate me....but my mission has been extended by a week so i will be coming home the 18th of april not the 11th. Its a shorted mission extension... because usually to extend your mission its an extra month but mine i only will be extending 1 week so ya....
So this week we went to pick up the glasses of my companion and to get to the temple we have to go through a really pretty forest so we had a little foto shoot that turned out pretty cute actually. And we had a miracle happen! So do you guys remember Oscar Landin who is like an eternal investigator who has been investigating for 10 years!? Well this week we went to a lesson with a member and we asked him if he had recieved an answer to be baptised or not and he said "yes i have recieved an answer.......yes i will be baptised! but i want to pick the date so that i can invite all my family..." so we were thrilled he will be baptised the 26th of December after christmas.
Also it was super awesome me and my companion were fasting this week to find more people to teach and this week we found 9 new investigators to teach and these investigators are super prepared to hear the gospel and are interested in keeping the compromises we leave and in reading the book of mormon! so it really helped me and my companion gain a stronger testimony that god answers our prayers and accknowledges our sacrifices as long as we put forth all our efforts and give 100% to Him he will bless us and help us in any situation.
I love you guys so much and im so grateful for the package i hope its ok that i opened it! if not welll ill just say i take after my dad....(opening all the bday gifts on christmas..)
