Week Twenty-Three: March 28th, 2011

Hey Family, Well this week has been a certainly different week. My stomach was still acting up and I got this way awesome cold, and the problems with my hands came back. So I didn´t actually get to go out and teach but it was all good. It gave me a chance to study and get caught up on the lessons. I really love my comp and we´ve been having so much fun. It´s been a blast even though I stayed in the house for 3 days and took the other days slow. I just have the one ward I watch over and it is just me and my comp. We have around 60 members that go. They are all really cool. There was one lesson I wanted to tell about that was really cool. There is this guy named Daniel who is like 35 to 40 and he has kid who is 2 years old. Well we always start a lesson with a prayer and before the lesson his son was going all crazy and wild like 2 year olds are. Well when we got down on our knees to pray that little kid went over with out being told and got down on his knees next to his dad and was silent the entire time. I just thought that was the coolest thing and how special is it that his son is already in the spirit of prayer. I tried to express how cool I thought that was and tie in the fact that he wants to live with his kid forever. Well I tried but I had a hard time not crying. It was really humbling. Well I went to the Doctor today and told me how to get some more medicine to help with everything. I hope you all are doing good. Love, Elder Holton

Week Twenty-Two: March 21st, 2011

Hey hey,
Well I made it here alright and the flight wasn´t too bad at all. I seriously slept like 6 hours. I took a Tylenal PM and it knocked me out cold. The work is going fantastic. I´m with a Elder Conforme who is from Ecuador and he really knows how to work. He is really cool. We have a lot of fun and work hard. We have like 4 maybe 5 and even maybe 6 Baptisms. Elder Conforme has been here for 6 months and he is just finishing the mission. I´m his last come. In 5 Weeks he is going home. We get along awesome. It´s been going really well. There is a couple named Juan y Sara and they are both like 70 years old. We´ve taught them like 3 times. Sara has Alzheimer which is really sad but Juan understands everything and is just loving the gospel. We also have Eduardo who I've only met once but he is getting baptized them also. And then we have the Bishop´s grandson who is getting baptized. He is 9 years old. I don´t know why he didn´t get baptized earlier. I guess he parents were a little inactive before but Elder Conforme has been working with them a lot. The Spanish has been really good. It is crazy how much better it gets everyday. I understand more and more every hour almost. The food is good. My stomach is still giving me grief but I´m not worried about it. It´ll fix itself soon. Well sorry guys but my time has run out. There is a link at the bottom of my sector. It´s actually not too far from my other but it isn´t as big which is nice also. Well I´ll talk to you guys later.
Con Amor,
Elder Holton
