March 3rd, 2013

Wow. Sounds  interesting. ha ha ha. KK looks beautiful in her dress and Zach has grown a lot.  Glad to hear that dad is still the joke and I can still picture everything in my head. The way you would laugh and all. and tell Heather CONGRATS!!!!! That is so cool! The only sad thing is that they all decided to get married when I was gone.   ha haha. Sky, hold on for one more year.  ha hahaha. 

This week was good. At times I get frustrated because we don´t have the success I want. I don´t know why, but for some reason it seems that all of the Elders that don´t obey always have baptisms. It can get a little annoying. However thankfully everyone in my zone obey. We had a fun zone activity today and we all relaxed, but I am really tired. This week was good. We found a person, Gabriela, who the missionaries had taught before. She didn´t want to go to church because she was afraid they would just baptize her. Well, my companion brought this up and we finally had her commit to go to church, but the last time we saw her was on Wednesday and I´m guessing she forgot because she didn´t come. We did have someone in church finally. Omar.  He is cool.

 I also feel like Satan is working hard to get us distracted.  On Tuesday as we were starting to plan for the week the phone rang and we had to go to the hospital. An Elder in our zone had a strong stomach infection. He is now fine, but the morning was shot. Then the next day as we started to plan for the week the phone rang and it was the mission offices asking my companion if he was going to leave 3 weeks early or later. Well, that got him all riled up because he still has 5 months. Finally we did get the week planned. There are some cool people in our ward and I am playing the piano every week.

 Also I have a new companion Elder Sanchez  .He lives in San Luis, and is a full time missionary.  His visa didn´t come and right as he was about to get on the plane, is bishop told him to stop. He is going to Ecuador. He leaves this Wednesday. He said he now has an initiative to learn English... So he can talk to Kaitlyn... haha haha. I showed him a picture of the fam, and it was pretty funny. 

I treasure the picture by the way. Well, it is time to work. I love you all. Have a great day and work and laugh and play hard. I will talk to you all next week.

Love Elder Michael Blake Crouch
ps. Cada miembro es un misionero.
