OH yes to put down my seats in the car you have to take the covers off so you will but able to see that off to the side on top is a nob and you pull it up and push the seats forward. then put the covers back on and then for the future you can pull the nobs with the covers still on cuz then you know where they are next time. :) ha That is good to hear about Nathan, Clayton, and Jackson are doing so good!! :) Yes I live in an Apartment with 2 other missionaries Ellos son tontos (you with have to ask Shawn or Melissa what that says) haha in a good way though.

Letter to the President
Querido, President Trayner
This week was a little bit slower with the work, however, at the ende it picked up a little faster and better. We had to get the whole Rosales family on the same page with learning and baptism. So we got them all on the same page so that is good but they didn't make it to church becuase the had to run their abuelita to Mexico on sunday becuase she was here on vacation. We also found a couple of new investigators who look pretty good.
We found Lupita Landaverde and Raul. Lupita is 15 her mom isd a memeber but hadn't been coming to church for a while becuase her husband was a little controling but right now they are separated and headed for divorce but Lupita came to church after our first lesson we had with her on saturday.
Raul we found and he wants to change his whole life and be baptised and knows we were sent from God only had a small lesson with him but his date is the 21 of October along with Lupita.
We just need to stress more about the BD check list with the Rosales family more to get them moving move down the road. I amn doing really good can't believe how fast my mission is going already!
My question for the book of mormon is "How can I know how to serve God more in my life." The Scripture I thought that might be good is using Mosiah 2:17-18 and then maybe the using leaving the chapters of Nephi being an example through action for the Lord as some Chapters to leave with them

Thanks Mike I loved reading the letters you wrote to me it helped me out :) I am doing so good down here my companion is still having a hard time but he is getting better everyday. i think It is because his dad got remarried and it is hard on his fam and su madre. I am learning and growing so much down here and having fun even in the harder times! Oh and I am turning into mike so bad a tease my companion and Elder Sweart like Mike teases! ha Like maybe wiping my burgers on my companion while in the car and he doesn't notice ops and teasing my other roomate but making everyone laugh in a good way. ha I loved the pictures in the box too!!!

Letter to pres. I thought I would send this to to make it faster :) This week has been much better for me and Elder Aguilar. We are finding more people that are prepared and need this gospel. Rosalez family it is hard to teach went all of her 5 boys are at home. However we taught her and one of her sons the restoration and tried to make it basic and it went a little over her head, she doesn't really have a gospel backgrouond. She told us she knows it is true by the feeling that she has when we teach her. She came to church will her youngest boy who is 7 and all her other boys were at their Aunt's house. Have some really good potentials that we are hoping to turn into investigators this week and another big goal is to try and have the whole Rosalez family on the some board in the teaching process. We are doing really good up here though. My spanish is getting better everyday so that is good.
Con amor, Elder Wilding
