I know without a doubt that this is the true Church

it was good to hear from everyone this week! thank you all for your letters, love and prayers. it really does mean a lot to me.

this week was ok. we found a new guy to teach. it is a funny story. we were walking in the street and we were walking past a bunch of Jehovah Witness’ standing in the shade. they just finished doing there contacting and they were talking together and we heard one of them ask the group if they found anyone or if they entered a house. no one had any luck. right then a guy on a bike went past them and stopped us to ask if we could visit him in his house this week. this was probably 15 or 20 feet away from the group of JWs. it was really funny cause they had just spent their morning contacting and had no luck and we found someone without even trying. Anyway we stopped by his house and we only had 20 min to teach him but he seems really good. we have an appointment with him tomorrow.

i don’t know if you remember but about a month ago i wrote about a guythat we are teaching. he wasn’t really progressing until this week. he came to church yesterday and he LOVED IT. all of the talks were perfect for him. he literally couldn’t have come on a better sunday. he told us that he has a lot of desires to get baptized but we cant really do anything cause he lives with his girlfriend. but we are going to keep working with him. he is a really good guy. he is really humble and he likes the lessons that we have. hopefully we can help him some more.

this was a pretty unlucky week for me as well. one day we were standing under a tree looking for a direction. i bent down to tie my shoe and i felt a huge splat on my back. a bird pooped on me. but not just like a little bit.... like a lot. (see photo, but the photo doesn’t show how bad it really was.)
the next day we were walking in the street and i stepped on a cement cover that was covering a bunch of water pipes. it wasn’t placed right and so it collapsed under me and i fell into the hole. i cant really describe what happened to well in email but it was pretty bad. everyone that was walking by stopped to see if i was ok. it was pretty embarrassing. nothing too big happened to me though. i just cut my knee and ripped my pants but it should have been a lot worse.

so this week we got the call for changes. i’m staying in recreo and i’m getting a new comp. he is from the states and his name is elder conger. from what i have heard from him he is sweet. everyone that i have talk to said that he is a really cool kid. i’m really happy. i’m expecting good things this change.

i know without a doubt that this is the true church. i know that if we live the commandments we will be happy. there is no other way to have true happiness than live the gospel. thank you all for your support.
