Email from Monday, 1 November 2010
Hey family. Thanks for your letters. I really appreciate all the letters that you send me. They really help me. I am having a very good week. We baptized two families this week! They are amazing! I bought them scriptures today at the distribution center. The oldest daughter never decided to get baptized, but I know eventually she will get baptized. She went to the baptism on Saturday and she went to church on Sunday to see her parents and brother and sisters get confirmed. They are really special. The dad is going to receive the higher priesthood next Saturday. I'm really excited for this family. I hope I stay in this area for another transfer. I like it here. The members are really nice. We also found a really positive family yesterday. While we were teaching the mom was so interested and the dad as well. I can't wait to see them in the water. Our district reached its goal of 10 baptisms this month. I can't wait to see what we can do next month. We didn't reach our goal this month for baptisms in our area. We had a goal of 8. We only baptized 6. In our zone we only baptized 14. So half of the baptisms that our zone had, were in our district. Yeah, so I'm enjoying the mission right now. It's really fun when we have success. My companion is doing well. We didn't do anything for Halloween. We didn't know when Halloween was. So yeah, they don't celebrate Halloween here in Honduras. Some parts of Honduras celebrate it, but in my area Halloween is like an evil holiday when real demons come out and attack people. Well, sounds like you all had a good Halloween. I wish I could have been there. OK, I love you all. Have a good week.
