     Buenas tardes a todos como estan? yo creo que voy a escribir mi carta esta semana en español, porque es mas facil para mi la verdad, hablen con papa y el puede traducir lo jaja no im just kiddin i´ll write in english. Hows things going in Utah! i´ve heard that the olympics are on right now in london, every single time we knock a door the people are always watching it, How are the States doing? Hey sorry mom that i haven't been answering your questions, i always read your email and then write my letter but i always forget what your questions were haha, but i will do better at answering your questions :) Well this week for us was pretty good, it hasn't rained for like 3 days, but the people here say that the raining is just starting, and will continue. This week we had a mission conference in Veracruz on tuesday, we got to see all of the missionaries that are staying in Mission Mexico Veracruz. When the mission split, i lost alot of friends that left for Xalapa, its pretty awesome because mostly everyone from my district in the MTC ( Elders Larsen, Wilkenson, Ryan, Dalton, and Furgeson) and all of my companions that i have had on the mission so far (Elders Larsen, Meraz, Garcia, and Ramirez) are ALL STAYING IN VERACRUZ!!! im pretty happy that we all get to stay together.
       So me and my companion had another pretty amazing experience this week that i would like to share with all of you. In Hueyapan, we have a member from there branch named Eric thats been helping us alot to find more people to teach. A week ago on sunday, Eric invited us to go visit his grandpa named Valentin, because his grandpa is really really sick right now. We walked into his house and Valentin was hooked up to a machine to help him breath, he was laying on his back not able to move, and his face really looked like he was going to die soon. The doctors here say he has cancer. Valentin told us that he has never really believed in god, and has never went to any church in his 70 years of life, but he asked us if we could help him. So we gave him a blessing, In the blessing, my companion told him that if he puts his faith in Christ, he will be healed in a months time. When we left the house, i was pretty sure that this man was going to die, but boy was i wrong! when we went to visit him on Saturday, he wasn't hooked up to the machine anymore, he was sitting up, eating, and walking around (slowly, but he was walking). I almost couldn't believe it! In the first 5 minutes we were in his house he told us that he believes that God lives, and that he wants to be baptized "en la iglesia de los Mormones". we will be working with him for the next two weeks to prepare him a little more to be baptized.
        One thing that i have learned out here for sure, is that the Priesthood is real, and is the same power that Jesus had when he was healing the sick and helping the blind to see. I know with all my heart that that same power Jesus had has been restored to us in these days by a prophet of God.
       Well that's all i have to report today haha, i will write you next week!
