new comp Elder Martinez

hey, so news from last week, we had changes and i now have a new comp. his name is elder martinez, hes from Merida, yucatan near cancun haha i now have a place to stay on vacation haha so ya i knew him his first day here in the mission he was in the area right next to mine and we took him to dinner his first day it was cool but that was 15 months ago but now he is gonna be the one to send me home kinda funny. so this week has been really good we have a zone baptism coming up on the 24th of july i think so it looks like we will baptize a few that day prob a couple. just gotta marry them first. but yeah other than that just trying not to think that my mission is coming to an end, but im happy, im happy with all that ive been apart of during these 2 years and how much its changed me. i think ive learned more on my mission in these 2 years than a lifetime without a mission, not just about the gospel but about life. its been amazing and i only have a short time left and i am going to finish the best i can. so yeah still no news on the return date but hopefully soon. but i better get going, i love you guys and thank you for all the support.

no letter

Sorry this week there hasn't been much of a letter just brief messages with promises of a letter tomorrow. Big news this week though is that he may be coming home a little early! He was tentatively scheduled to come home the 1st part of August and there were a bunch of conflicts as well as a desire to go to school. We talked to the mission president and Josh had an interview with him on Tues. to renew his recommend and talk with him about his plans. No word yet on what the Mission President will decide or when we will get him home. Josh is supposed to call Pres. Chavez tonight and get a decision. We will see!!!! It's wierd to think of him coming home! Mixed emotions all around! The crazy boy said I better not be emotional when he gets home...hmmmm nice try! So excited and sad that this part of our life is coming to an end. It's over way too soon and at the same time drug on forever. We are so grateful for all the support our wonderful friends and family have given us. What a journey it has been. Cherish every moment! They are over before you know it....
I'll post as soon as we have a date!

Happy Fathers Day

well family first off, happy fathers day! dad thats to you! (haha in case you didnt know) well this week has been AWESOME we were working super hard and usually we get some good people and a lot of just alright people to teach, but this week we started and we had crazy good results we had a bunch of really good people to teach and hardly any just alright people and one of the best parts was that the people we found a lot were complete families which is always a plus, so we were super excited this week but with sunday being fathers day most of them couldnt come to church but they are all looking good for this sunday so we are happy here, and last sunday the bishop had all the recent converts give talks, and WOW it was amazing the talks they gave were soo good, simple and right to the point no fancy talk it was amazing i think it was my favorite sacrament meeting in my whole mission. so yeah my time here is going great even though its getting close to finishing but change is good. so im excited to see what else is in store for me after this. well im soo happy to hear that grandma is doing better with every day i cant believe so much stuff has happened in these 2 years. well this letter is short but it is what it is. haha well i hope all is going well and the kids are good, i love you guys and hope you guys are getting things settled in the new house.
well i love you.
