Hey Hows the family damily?

It rocks to be a missionary!! This week has gone by really fast. My new area is a little hard. We had a couple of investigators progressing but all of a sudden everything went crashing down. For example We are teaching Andrea she's the mom of a convert she loves the church well the 3 days before we were filling out her Registro to get baptized. But comes to know she's not married for The state. She lied to us. She was married and then got divorced with the guy and then they got back together. He's a gold digger. And they don't want to get married. So right now she's not progressing. And everyone else that was in teaching well they don't want to read or go to church. We do have a hope he's Arturo he the dude that we found that brought his uncle to learn with us. He really likes the church its just hard to find him right now.

On Tuesday was the "grita"  the independence of Mexico. It was kinda crazy saying oh ya last year I was in Petromex. So we had a bbq with a family and then at 6 we had to be in our houses. Well we got a call that the assistants were going to sleep with us. Because the next day (Wednesday) was going to be Zone conference I was pretty pumped because Elder Nordhoff is my buddy. In the night we watched the singles ward and ordered pizza it was pretty chill.

I feel like i'm changing Mexican so if thats bad, I'm sorry I love the people up to the Horchata to the Mexican ladies don't shaving I love everything. Pray for me this week that I can find the people that have been waiting for me in the pre earth life.

I love you and I know that we are blessed that's amazing that Wade is alright and that Laur is fine with her driving I know that God sent 2 angels when I left one to go with me and the other to stay and take care of you guys.

I love ya tons

Go get them out there.

p.s. I wet the bed. 
jk no just joking. We had like a mini water fight in the house. My comp was looking a pics of Lauren, I told him to put them down and got to sleep. He stuffed them in his pillow case, so a grabbed a jug of water and said i'll get you wet. He said if you get me wet i'll soak your bed, I didn't think that he would do it. So I splashed some water on him. Well he did it - he soaked my bed.

Hey Family:

Its feels like a decade since i've written you guys! Hope everything is on
the DL, hey Mom don't kill me too much until I get home.

Its kinda weird sometimes when we are just walking in the road songs will
come into my head. and just barely the song of Lilly Allen came in to my
head. Where Wade would lip sinc... Heart ah ah ah ah Heart. Something like
that. Good ole times!

Hopefully all you stinkers are doing everything that you can on your
homework and that you tell mom and dad that you love them every morning and

Last week i'm sorry we went to Xalapa for our leadership with the Pres. It
was pretty fun! I love President! He's helped me out sooo much! Well on the
way home we always take ADO and they have really cool ties. So we always
take pit stops from Xalapa to Poza! So when we stop to take a break. I
asked the driver, hey thats a really cool tie, where could I buy one? Well
the homie hooked me up saying well no I have 2 i'll give you this one! It
was the best day Ever!!!!

On Wednesday we did a Class as a zone. Now my zone is huge! So i'm pumped.
We did an activity put a maze of chairs and there companion had to guide
them a round Everyone loved it!

Friday we were in the need of finding new people to teach. We started
contacting in the road. But everyone was rejecting us. So we were walking
and we said hey lets talk to this guy out side of his house. We went up to
the gate of the house. Acting like we were looking for someone named Jorge.
He told us that no one lived there named Jorge. We acted disappointed a
really. So we started to say oh what's your name. It was a young guy named
Arturo. His pretty cool. He told us to come back tomorrow. Well we did.

Long story short. Saturday came and Arturo invited his uncle who is
Evangelist... they had 5 bibles on the table surrounding the book of mormon.
It was an awesome feeling to testify to them that we have the full gospel.
And we answered all their questions! Scripture Power!!!!

Sunday they had the rededication of the Mexico temple! It was sweet! Do you
guys remember when we went to the Oquirrih mountain temple i think? I don't
know what temple but we went to the open house? well Sunday we were able to
have the rededication broadcasted to us. It was spiritually uplifting.

today I was trying to be creative and to a relay for the zone! on pday. I
had it planned out to be really cool. But a bunch of people failed on me
and didn't want to come. but no worries I did some quick planning and
everything worked out fine. I'll tell you in more detail later. Mom do you
remember when you did the amazing race with the Roberts! ha ha Thats how i

Oh also with this guy Arturo! On friday when we were leaving he asked us
what our names where. I told him elder Roberts. He told me no your real
name. (I didn't know what i was thinking) I told him Brett. Then i
explained no but for right now i'm elder Roberts. Well my comp also said his
named. So the next day when we came to see Arturo. Said oh hey Brett and
Carlos. Come in come in. How are you Brett... It was saying my real name it
was soooo wierd. Elder P and I could hide our smiles. It was soo funny. He
introduced us to his uncle. Hey uncle this is Brett and Carlos. We finally
told Arturo about our names so hopefully he'll get the idea.

I love you all
