31 de octubre


im super sorry but this letter will be super short.... dont have any time!

this week was pretty so so... we were gonna baptize mario yesterday but there was no water! and we even called for more water and it never came. it was sad tho because he has already waited 1 and a half months and now he can get baptized! but there was no water. we gotta do all that we can to put water in the font! he even brought his family!  but its cool, now they have to come to church again!

we should have 3 baptisms next sunday. i know that the number of baptisms i have on my mission isnt important, but its the only way people can be saved and become members of the true church. but the important thing is that they should endure to the end. thats a very important step in the gospel of jesus christ. im just here to help people come unto christ and if they can make covenants, i am doing good. im also here to mature and become a better member, sibling, husband, and dad. and to learn more about the savior jesus christ.

gotta go but i love you all

24 de septiembre

the weeks fly by so fast! we are already starting week 4 of 6 this change! crazy stuff... and we still havent baptized!!! but we will do it soon. mario got his letter! so we gotta go tell him whats up and we will probably do it sunday after church.
we were gonna baptize a girl named vanessa who is like 13 but we had to wait another week.. she lives with hermana minerva but the hermana isnt her legal guardian yet so the mom has to give vanessa permission and then the hermana minerva can sign the baptism papers because the person being baptized has to have 18 years...but its all good.
this week went really well actually... we taught a lot and found new people and put new baptism dates! we have a total of nine as of right now.. when i got here there were ZERO! oh but yesterday was so suave....we went to aleytia´s house and their entire fam was there! i think all that live there are like 5 or so... but the mom and the other daughter were busy and the kid was playing marbles and not paying attention... but we taught Aleytia for the third time and her dad for the first. but it was such a perfect lesson. the only problem was it was a little long, but it was so spiritual and they felt it strong and so did we, and well we taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and long story short i believe that the family was ready to listen to us. we put a baptism date for the dad and Aleytia and well i love them. to finish me and my comp sang Venid a mi (Come Follow Me) i almost cried in the lesson. but the dad, Salvador; said the closing prayer and it was sooooooooooooooo powerful. we thought that he was gonna cry. and he was like thanks so much for sending these two young men to my door to help me come closer to thee. all i can say is...way sweet!
more news! we are getting cell phones! idk when but soon! sweet ehh? but dont call me or text me... its gonna make life SOOOOOOO much easier.
umm i bought some sweet shoes and 2 ties for like 40 bucks. the shoes are really crappy but they are only for meetings and sundays and what not.  but they are way cool. i gonna look fre$h los domingos.
well listen, the church is true and the book is blue.  -Ashley Clayton

17 de octubre

well ill tell you this, we worked our nalgas off this week....

im still tired from it! or maybe its cause i also played some futbol today... quien sabe...

also had lots of sweet experiences. finding new people, puting baptism dates, testifying of the restored truth and well, shoot, im literally called by God to be here.

hmmm some experiences this week... we found a mom and a son named Ester and Angel and they love us. they made us breakfast the other day and invited friends to come over too. they like what we teach, but Ester and her hubby arent married so we gotta work on that... oh ya but the experience, Angel who is a little special and super funny said he had a dream that a giant virgin mary chased him down the stairs and told him that she wasnt real and that the Catholic church isnt true... Crazy huh?!

we contacted a door where a lady that we contacted a long time ago lives and we finally found her. well actually her dughter, Aleytia. and she is so cool and special and idk but we talked to her for the second time yesterday and we just like started to click (me, her and my comp) and introduced ourselves and talked about Christ and how he is so important in our lives and what not and well turns out she is sick. idk what its called but i guess its where she has problems using the bathroom and has to do something special....who knows. but ya shes 21 and after we talked to her at the door the first time and also the second time i said to my comp... hey, idk why, but i love this girl. there is something just super special about her and we need to baptize her. she is escogido (chosen) fo sho..

and well everyday theres great experiences, but i cant remember them all or i dont have time to write them....

but keep choosing the right! i love you all and so does Christ.

11 de octubre


que tranza mis carnales (what's happenin', my buddies?)

well this week was alright. it was a little sad to see that we didnt have as many successes. and no one came to church! oh jk actually a 13 yr old girl came. she is gonna live with a family from now on and well we taught her afterwards and well she wants to be baptized! sweet ehh? she is a niña magica! which means a little kid that wants to get baptized because he or she understands the importance easier i guess.. haha so ya, that is a blessing for us, but we still have a lot of work to do! 

we still dont know about capt. hook (mario) because the primera presidencia (First Presidency) hasnt responded yet. he kinda started to get a little discouraged, but we were able to help him out. he reads the BofM a lot and loves it! he recently read in Alma about when Ammon cuts off the arms of a bunch of barbarians (idk if they were really barbarians, the word came to mind and i liked it.) and he says Ammon es de la banda, o sea (which is to say), in the gang. 

a lot of stuff happens during the weeks, but like elder ferrin says, its hard to describe them and tell them to you, but they will always be here with me in my heart. the mission is great and WHOA, im gonna complete 11 months! thats crazy. miss me, mama? 

i love you all.
choose the right.

dear loved ones,
well another transfer just ended at the speed of light! i cant belive it.. we were only able to baptize two in the last 6 weeks, not too bad but like im saying, we had more planned. oh well, i dont have changes and neither does my companion so that just means our goal for october baptisms will be even higher.
mario is still progressing great. he is the one who has to wait until the first presidency writes president chavez back and says he can be baptised... he also has a sweet hook for a hand. but hes so cool. hes a stud. came to conference and said it was cool!
the week was so-so good, as in like mas o menos good... we worked hard, but we have had better weeks. we hope to be able to baptize more this coming sunday so im excited for that. but i want more work! wow, did alex inglish just say that? i dont know why i like working so much now! i barely passed senior math without doing a single piece of homework! i was a bad example back then. haha. dalan ryan kylie julian alysa and all you little nephews and nieces, study hard in school! and go on missions. its the coolest thing youll ever do. :)
well conference was good! i actually got to listen in english this time! pretty sweet. and powerful. well i gotta go meet up with the others in my district. were going to the center of mexico city! its pretty chido (cool). well paz afuera (peace out) for now!
love elder inglish
