Week Seventy-Five: March 26th, 2012

My New Companion Elder Guevara from Honduras

Dear Family,
How are things going? Well we had another good week. Jessica was baptized on saturday and confirmed on Sunday. Also we received the phone call that Elder Sanchez has changes. Well President decided to do something different this change. We had changes a day early. So they have already happened. And my New companion is Elder Guevara from Honduras. I don't know him too much because I just barely met him like 3 hours ago but I'll tell you more next week. We did feel 2 trembles they call them this week. We had one on like wednesday night at 4:30 that actually woke me up. The other was yesterday and it lasted for about 10 seconds but was way more intense. It was awesome. Well this past week was a good week and we are looking forward to another great week with General Conference. We will watch it at the Stake Center and we will be there all day. I hope you all are doing great and I look forward to talking to you later.
Love, Elder Holton
Me and Elder Sanchez
Jessica's Baptism
With Jessica's family!

Week Seventy-four: March 20th, 2012

Dear Family,Well this week has been a very awesome week. Maria Jose got baptized and confirmed. It was great. I also sent you some pictures. Jessica also passed her baptism interview and will be baptized this coming Saturday. So we are very excited. The work is going very well. We have been working very hard on improving our contacts. I know it doesn't really show but we are working on them and it will show. It has been a really good week but super busy. It's just a matter of getting the wheels going and then the speed gets going. Today we went the Zoo today. That is why I didnt't write yesterday. We had our P-day on Tuesday because the zoo isn't opened on Mondays. It was fun. Hey thank you everyone for all the Birthday cards! I loved them.Well Family I hope you have a great week.Love,Elder Holton

Week Seventy-Three: March12th, 2012

Dear Family,
We have had another fantastic week. Things are going great out here. I think I might stay out here for another few years. Haha Well to start off María José passed her baptismal interview. We are very excited and are working to prepare her for her baptism. She already has a lot of friends from the ward. She'll have her baptism this Saturday. Jessica is doing very well also. We are preparing her for her baptismal interview. The other baptismal date we have is named Pablo. He is doing well. We put a baptismal date with him this past week and he went to church yesterday. We have the date for the 31st of March. So we'll see what happens when we get there. The pension is holding up good. We are just going to hang in there. We are also working on dividing the ward into sectors to organize FME activities. We have a lot of momentum that we have to take advantage of. We are working on finding new investigators to teach. Well I hope you all have a fantastic week.
Love Elder Holton

Week Seventy-Two: March 5th, 2012

Dear Family,
This has to have been one of the best weeks I've had in awhile. And the thing that is the most funny is my birthday had absolutely nothing to do with it. Well to start off we put a baptismal date with Jessica for the 24th of March. She is progressing really well. She's just golden. Also we put a baptismal date with María José for the 17th of March. She also is progressing just amazingly. We taught the Word of Wisdom and the Law of Chastity and she accepted them both so fast. haha Steve came to church this yesterday. We are working with him. Yesterday in the chapel we had 5 investigators. It was just awesome. The Zone Leaders said last night that they are very pleased with this past week with my District.
I am doing great. I had an awesome birthday. The package was great and we made the brownies and they were great. Last night I was calling the missionaries in my district for their numbers and President called. I almost didn't answers thinking it was some Elders calling me back but I decided to just make sure and check. Good thing right? Well President with Sister King and their Daughter Ellie all sang Happy Birthday to me. That was awesome.
After we are done here we are going to go shopping and then go buy some completos! My companion is really tired so I will probably write letters while he is sleeping. Haha!!
Well I hope you all have a great week.
