Week Eighty-Four: May 28th, 2012

Hey moms! Here are your studly missionaries! haha we love you so much! Have a great week and know that we will be thinking of you!
Your stripling warriors,
Elder Holton and Elder Smith
This is the letter I got first along with a bunch of funny pictures and thought it was all he was going to send this week and then I got a longer letter a few hours later!
Dear Family,
Well we had another great week. Its been pouring but seriously pouring rain here. Its been crazy and fun. Well I guess Ill start off from the beginning of the week. We have been having a lot of fun .So we have had some great miracles as well this week. It started raining and then on saturday we had the baptism of Monica. It was a crazy baptism. Like no one came because it was literally raining so much that there were rivers in the streets. You almost couldnt cross without going through lakes. It was so crazy. The baptisimal service actually was really good. We sang nearer my god to thee with the mom. It seriously was a beautiful baptisimal service. We have another investigator Juana wasnt able to be baptized because she has phemonia and bronchitis. She got super super sick and the doctors said that she shouldn't bathe herself. It was sad but Juana said that whatever happens she knows that she will be baptized. She said that she is going to give all of her strength and faith so that she can be baptized this next saturday. We sure hope so. She has great faith and really does know that what we have taught is true. She already passed the baptisimal interview. Now the only thing that she needs is to get better. haha But we are excited about her. It'll be cool. Another cool miracle we had is that the grandma of Monica was really mean the whole time we were teaching her. But last week she just came up to us and started sharing. The lord helped us find all of her doubts and we helped her out a lot. Now she loves not kidding loves us a lot. The family is so interesting because there are three couples that live in Monica's house. Half of them are members and all of their partners are not members and they are not married. Well now that the grandma loves us they are all listening to us. Elder Smith and I were able to teach them about the law of chastity and the temple and eternal marriage. Every single couple said that they wanted that in their lives. We have started teaching them and they all have plans to get married. It would be the coolest if we really could get them all married and sealed in the temple. So it was a cool little miracle that we had. We are excited.

Yesterday we also had district conference so president king came and spoke. It was really good. The Spirit was so strong. So many members commented on how good it was.
We just need to find more people to teach. But I'm not worried about it. I know we will.
Well I hope you all have a great week

Elder Holton
