"Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God."

Carta # 34 de 2011 agosto 21

Hola familia!

Por favor digan a Michelle que recibí su carta y voy a escribirle una pronto. Gracias!Please tell Michelle that I got her letter and that I will write to her soon. Thanks!

Hey I'm thinking about getting an extension. I'm going to talk with President Irion about it. If I'm able to get it will something need to be done with my scholarship or anything?

Well this week went pretty well. It was nice having the car but we have to give it to the other Elders for this week. We picked up a couple of new investigators. They are the wives of G. and A. In that order they are G. and M. We hope that we can start teaching both of these families a couple of times throughout each week. They show good potential.

We tried seeing the E. [family] a couple of times but they weren't there. We were able to talk with Hermano E. yesterday. We are going to try working more with him. I can't remember if I said this before but he works the night shift and he leaves around three which is around when is kids come home from school. So, there isn't a lot of time to teach them as a family. Lately we have been going in the evenings when the wife and kids are there. He made it sound like he wants us to see him earlier in the day. So, we hope that's a good sign that he's interested in learning more.

We taught A, his wife and their two kids the couple of principles of the Restoration. They said they will finish reading the pamphlet before our next meeting this Friday. They show good potential and we are excited to see how they progress.

We saw J. G. and taught him those first priciples of the Restoration also. He too said he will read the rest of the Pamphlet. Hopefully we can reactivate his family and get him baptized in the process

We saw G. and read another chapter in the Book of Mormon with him. We left him with a reading assignment and we really hope that he reads!

We haven't been able to see Ch. this past week because he's in school now and his dad works when he's not in school. But, J. said he won't be working much this week so we should be able to get some lessons with them this week! Ch is in 2 Nephi! He's still doing really well with keeping his commitments. I say that he will be baptized soon and within this transfer.

Overall things are going well here. I can't believe this is my fifth transfer here! Crazy! I wouldn't mind staying longer or maybe even going to the other Dalton area. I really love the area and the people here. But, I'll do what the Lord reveals to President Irion because I know that He knows what’s best.

Well, I believe that is everything I have for y'all this week. I know the Church is true! May the Lord bless you all. I love y'all! I send my love to EVERYONE. Friends and family. Well, we're all family. Anyway, much love and take care!
