hello hello. 

well here i am. working with the same. its so cool to see the work flourish and see the promises of the Lord come true. we had to change a lot of baptismal dates that we have because sometimes people dont go to church, but we are praying a lot and are trying to work with them. (any hints would be greatly appreciated.) its also kinda tough because we have almost all families that are super chosen and ready to make covenants, but arent married. nots not really a problem because we can marry them, but some need to get divorced first and others didnt think it was important to be legally married by the law, but we are helping them to understand and its great when the spirit backs us up! 

cool story. my first convert that we baptized in this area went to EFY and LOVED it. he also wants to go on a mission. 

another cool story. there was an old lady that i taught in one of my last areas, Ixtla, that finally got baptized after listening to the missionaries for like 2 years! her time finally came. and well since i attend in the same chapel i was able to go to her baptism and she was so happy and content and glad i was able to go. she thanked me for helping her and never leaving her. and the truth is that when i was there i thought about it, but i kept going and so did the missionaries that followed me. 

love you!

well things are going good! we are getting people prepared for baptism and helping them (along with the Holy Ghost) to understand the restored gospel and become a part of it. the Lord is blessing us a lot and we are ready to see the miracles happen. people are feeling the spirit so strong and we are able to leave them wanting more. transfers are tomorrow but my comp and i dont have transfers. so that means ill probably be here until like October! haha. thats a long time in one area. i got here in may 1st. and who knows. i finish in Nov, maybe ill finsh in this area... 

well i gotta go! were gonna have a district pizza party and play Clue. which is totally allowed. 

Love you. Love Jesus. Love God. its amazing to feel the spirit and see it work with others to convert them. all we are are instruments in the hands of the Lord.

i love Alma and his testimony here, he glories in his purpose: I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do anot bglory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.

well this week was actually really good!
we are finding so many new investigators and me and my comp are really just pushing it to the limit. gotta push it, push it, to the limit, limit.
we are starting to teach really well together. this week we were able to find 10 more new investigators and we set 8 baptismal dates with some of our other investigators. the branch doesnt really help that much, but things really are just getting better and they will just continue to get better! and in time the branch will start to help a litttle with the work. but i can see and feel the Lord working with us. if everything works out right we should baptize this week, next week, the next, and the far.....
i love my Heavenly Father. He lives. and i know He loves me. He loves every one of His children equally. this is His work and we all need to help and share the gospel with everyone we can. i absolutely LOVE this church, the restored gospel, and especially my Savior, Jesus Christ. with all my heart.
love, elder inglish
