Working Through a Cold

Letter Received April 19, 2010:

Hey family,

Well, this week was not so awesome as we planned, but still it was a good week and I am staying positive.   I came down with a hard core cold and cough and had to go to the doctor to get some antibiotics.  I asked my companion and our mission leader in our ward to give me a blessing and I know I am starting to feel better because I got that blessing and I know that the lord has really blessed me with more help because I am getting better really fast.

This week we didn’t seem to be working very well because we were both sick and I think that is definitely one of the reasons that we didn’t work so well, but that is no excuse.  I need to do better and I am working now with more determination, so I have learned from my trials. 

This week we have a disappointment.  Rodrigo is not going to be getting baptized because he just can’t get the doubts out of his head about Joseph Smith.   He knows that it is true but just won’t accept it.  He is an awesome guy and he is an awesome friend but he isn’t going to be baptized until he really reads and gets down on his knees and sincerely asks God if it is true.  This week we have been working with some key people and really have been trying to focus on getting people to church but it didn’t really work out this week to have people there because everyone fell and didn’t show up, it really sucks.  Oh well, the only thing that we can do is try harder for next week.

Today we went out to the mountains and to this really sweet river and I will send pictures next week, but I am out of time because we went to the river we got back really late.  I only had 40 minutes to write.  It is really awesome that you all had fun at Kat's house and that you all get along really well and that everyone is staying really busy.  That is cool to hear that Dad is really starting to like his new job and that he had a good birthday, also that Jace, Lexie and Lyndsay are all doing well and are happy.  I got to go, I am sorry this is so short.  I love you all, and miss you a ton.
