Hey Family and Friends!
      This week was the most critical week in my mission. As i become more and more converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ, the harder things get. I am proud to say that Satan has not won this week. Elder Allen has. I am so happy to be a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints. If you are not a missionary and you are worthy and able to go and you haven't. Period. Have some dang faith and repent for procrastinating. Go, you will never regret it. Fear is the opposite of faith. "Every Member a missionary." -David o McKay
Sorry for being harsh... honest. This gospel has changed the lives of thousands of people, and i am a witness of that. As an outcome to this, i have changed. It is very important to never say, i will do it tomorrow. I can do my home teaching another day i have all month to do it. I will go help that person if the husbands not there. whatever it is.... Procrastinators unite tomorrow. I am so proud of all of my family and friends for the support they give me while i am out here on the lords mission. I am so happy that everyone is doing good.
Really quick before i leave. We had a really cool lesson this week after we gave service. A husband and wife were fighting immediately after the opening prayer. they have been competing to see who can read the book of Mormon the fastest. Well, all we said is, its not a race we need to read it together. Just like Elder Holland said, It is never too late so long as the Master of the vineyard says there is time. "It is never too late so long as the Master of the vineyard says there is time." I know this to be true. We still have time. Love yall

Dear Family and Friends,
 First I apologize because I cannot write everyone personaly, I really have no time to do so. Second this week I do not have any pictures. But on the good side there is good news. So about 7 weeks ago, President Ames said to not tract if at all posible. So We have not tracted for 7 weeks and we are seeing alot more member involvement. It is amazing to see progression at its finest. I am so happy to be a missionary and to be serving for the lord.
THank yall for your letters and thoughts. If you get a chance this week go out on an exchange and have fun with the missionaries. You will feel the spirit.
Member work is the best work for missionaries. If not we tract all day and its not fun. Work with the missionaries. trust that god put them there. Trust them with your friends.

Picture #1 is me eating a delicious hamburger at Braums. Braums is the best burger joint in Texas
Picture #2 This is Elder Newman and Walker. Newman left last week and Elder Walker got his visa to go to Peru Yesterday. So he is leaving at 7:00 pm. :( He by far was the best visa waiter I have had and perhaps the best companion I have had.
Picture #3 This is my new companion Elder Barnette. He is a stud.
Dear Family and Friends,
     This week was amazing. We had alot of work to finish. Elder Barnette is our new District Leader and he is doing an amazing job. He is really focusing in on the importance of setting goals and evaluating ourselves everyday to achieve your goals. So I have set a life goal to accomplish: Become Converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by utilizing a scheduled study time. By doing this I will always have personal study from the scriptures daily, during my mission and after the mission.
     We have been working with the Cantu Family this week. Olga is a member and her husband David is not. Olga's daughter is a member also, her name is Bridgett. We are helping them establish a foundation in Christ through Daily Scripture study and Prayer as a family. They Text us every time they do it so that they can be accountable to someone which in return motivates them to do better. They are a wonderful family and have alot of potential. They also came back to church for the first time in a very long time. They are amazing. I love this family.
      Thank you everyone for all of the letters of support and encouragement. I will and am writing you back

So we all went bowling. last week and it was a blast. I loved it. But anyway. My trainer goes home this Thursday and my current companion is getting transferred to fill in my trainers spot in denton, Texas. the other picture is of some random pillow that i am attempting to immediate. ha ha. well the mission field is crazy sweet. i love every single minute of it. I will see yall in 7 months. I am just blown away at how fast the time has gone. Just remember that if anyone is worried about going on a mission. If you are worried that life is going to change alot and that you will not be successful. those thoughts are from the devil. Repent and go. Wyatt and Jacob, it is critical to go on a mission to learn, Patience, love, diligent, obedience and to just mature ALOT. Life is completely different. Yall will NEVER regret going on a mission. GO!
