Dear Family,
               Transfers were this week. elder jones is now in fort worth and now my new companion is elder galvez from peru. he is really sweet. he likes to do things perfectly. he is pretty sweet. anyway. so this week we taught 3 lessons with a member present. 12 other lessons, we got 10 new investigators, and 3 less active member lessons. ya we tor it up. we got a few other things too. for a grand total of 38 key indicators this week. if you dont know what key indicators are... read preach my gospel. so our mission is doing a book of mormon challenge. page 114 in preach my gospel. read the book of mormon in three months and highlight whenever it says the names of jesus and his attributes-(look up his attributes in chapter 6 in preach my gospel). highlight the doctrine of christ-( Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Holy ghost, endure to the end) and if you do that i promise you will learn more about the savior and have a dramatic change in love for others. DO IT!!!! it has blessed my life emensley. i am now starting to do it with the bible. also if anyone wants to learn more about christ...everyone should... read the 4 books of the missionary library. my favorite part in the book of mormon is still alma 37. i am emensly blessed. if anyone is having any doubts about the gospel or life in general. shame on you. not to take that a harsh way but go out and find the true church. there is only one. every single other one is just beyond confused. i know this church is true. Doubt is the oposite of faith. i love you all read the book of mornom to get rid of any doubts. if anyone is reading this that is of the age of going on a mission (males 19-25 women (21-26 i believe) GO ON A MISSION. you have no idea whos life you will change. if you dont go you will be in heaven adn you will look into the face of someone that you could have changed on your mission. Go on a mission.
            We have one progressing investigator. her name is florencia. we were.. haha talking to a drunk guy and we told him we were missionaries and florencia popped out of no where and was like.. what your missionaries. come to my house now and pray for me. after we prayed she wanted to give us a hundred dollar bill. i didnt want to inhearet namens lepresy for taking credit of what the lord does. so we didnt take the money. she is a sweet little lady that is from quatamala. the very next day she was at church. we are teaching her and her family everyday now. we have another investigator named Rubi. she was taught two years ago and she was not being taught anymore because she has to be married before she can be baptized. so we found her and ya she is still not married but she wants to be baptized. she is a sweet person and keep all of the commitments we give her. two weeks ago i met this man named juan paredes and he was drunk. i didnt think that he really remembered us. but we tryed contacting him this week and we recieved news he was in the hospital. we went to the hospital and translated for the nurses. he was so dehydrated his kidneys stared to fail. he is fine now. we have taught him a few times. 
          We went out to luiz hernandez (less active member) and taught his friend. after the lesson he wanted to take us to a chinese buffet. ya we ate alot. hispanics are very generous. we had a compitition who could eat the most sushi. i am hitting another growthspirt so i won. i ate 18 rols of sushi. it was sooooooooooooo good. i love sushi. we were told that each of the susi rolls had about 400 calories. so i consumed about 7200 calories in a matter of 20 minutes. haha i am so dumb. o well. i am loving it in texas. so the hottest it got this week when i checked was 111 degrees. at that point its not hot. it is just literaly crying with swet. if anyone would like to test how hot is is. but boil a pan of water and put your head 5 feet above the pan. ya its hot and humid. nothing really crazy happend this week. but i am now 6' 1'' and 160 pounds. ya its  sweet. thanks for all of your prayer and letters. my address is still the same. have fun this week in the cool idaho and utah and mexican weather. i will take the heat for all y'all. if anyone needs anything tell me and i will do my best. thanks and take care family and friends.
