dear everyone,
ITS HOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok its hot. o well. it doesnt really matter. so this week we set 2 baptism dates. So i have been thinking about life alot lately. i have come to a conclusion that people do have agency and they are good at using this gift. sometimes i wanna pull a satan and make everyone do what they are suppost to do but o well. so this week we taught 9 lessons. so i have told my companion that this is unexceptible to only have 9 lessons. so we are going to bump them up. so i am so glad i am on a mission. i am so happy to be here helping people change there lives. well besides the unbearible heat and humitity i am ok and i love the mission. sorry i was a day late emailing, it was memorial day and we couldnt email. so have a good week everyone.

ok so this week we did ok. we could have done so much better but bad weeks happen according to my trainer. so i am kinda the type of person that will tell you my opinion especially when you ask me for it. so we have like a billion and a half "potential investigators" so we have to sort through them. how we do this is tell them why we are there what we do and what will be expected. it is then their choice to continue with the lessons. well i did this and now we only have half a billion people. so it is sweet to have investigators but we still need to find more. my companionship is awesome. we get doors slammed in our face. the first door i had slammed in my face my companion said well lets go. and i said nope he is being taught. i knocked on the door again and said listen i am going to tell you about the most important thing in the world and you are going to listen because you need what i am telling you. so we got in and taught him a lesson. that is how it is done. you gotta bold down here in texas. well that was my favorite thing this week. i gave to spanish priesthood blessings this week. one to a member and one to an investigator. it was pretty sweet. so besides the heat that i am just loving, we had a pretty good week this week. anyway whenever y'all are board y'all could write me ya know. my new address is
Elder Dillon Glen Allen
1400 West Valley Ridge Blvd
Lewisville, TX 75077
dont be afraid to write me the only person who will get bit or hurt during "this mailing letters to elder allen" is the mailman. i promise it will not hurt you. so i am glad i am on a mission. and every single male gender of age to go on a mission, you are making the biggest mistake of your life by not serving a mission. it teaches you so much. and it is the best two years. adios and dont forget to write me!

hello, so this week was pretty cool! i got to texas and met my mission president president sagers. we went to his house and ate a delisious meal of brisket! brisket is the bom. ya so we had a little testimony meeting and then we went to a church and had the in-field orientation. it was pretty sweet! then we went to the ap's house and spent the night. we woke up and went back to the church for more orientation and then we got our companions. my companion is elder jones from cowley, wyoming. he is a great human being. he has taught me and is teaching me alot about the mission. he speak beautiful spanish. me and him are like a tornado going into trailer parks preaching the word. we tear it to peaces and then help them put it back together the right way. ya we are awesome. just saying. so the day i got my new companion we went "knocking" and met and got 1 new investigator names Raul! ya he is going to be baptized when the time is right. so we honestly have no support from members...well they feed us... but we have no missionary ward leaders so we knock alot. and it is very succesfull. hispanic people are very nice when they are not waisted. we met the ramos family and they are now reading the book of mormon. we also found this awsome dude named albert and he reads the BOM alot. so does anyone know what it is like to sit in a building for three hours staring at people who are speaking a foreign language. ya that was me at church, and ya they speak super duper fast and so i pretty much just sat there. well thats exactly what i did. ya well that was my week and it was sweet! i will tell you all about this week later!

ok so this week is a rush... i do not have any time to email so i will make it quick. i love the mtc and i am glad to be leaving to the field. i am very excited. i know that i am in the right place at the right time. last week russel m nelson talked to us and it was sweet. he taught us about the plan of salvation. i am loving the gospel. the world is in a state of pre-cleansing. the church is being sounded in every ear. soon and sooner than all of us think the second coming will come with the very fires of hell that we will live in if we do not repent. the world is being prepared to be cleansed by fire. all those who do no repent will surley die. i am fearful for all of my friends and family who will not repent. have you ever seen a movie where the camera view is looking at the side of the hill and there is sound in the distance, the farther up the mountain you go the louder the sound gets, when you peak the top of the mountain you see the 300 million soldiers marching to destroy the little town at the base of the hill. the hill represents the blindness of the people in the world. they do not know that there is an army of 300million people about to kill them until it is too late. i feel the power of SATAN everyday trying to penatrate me and everyone in the world. he is real he is coming fast. the second coming is coming fast. repent. forget your pride and set your lives away and serve the lord. every member a missionary. Heaven=Eternal Progression with the ones you love, Hell=No Progression without those you love. please open your eyes everyone and see how pitiful we are if we do not use the atonement. i love the gospel. a testimony IS NOT YOURS do not keep it in. SHARE IT WITH EVERYBODY. if you do not you shall surely perrish!!! i love you all and i will email next week and tell you my address in texas. repent all ye ends of the earth and endure to the end!
