Steak and ice cream cooked by a sweet hermana. Walking and a bird pooped on me.

Welcome to the Jungle Reports.

Well this week was good and bad. Good was the interviews with president. Bad was that we aren't finding people that are progressing. 

I love my comp he's awesome. Elder Rojas he's a cool dude from Chihuahua. He's super obedient and wants to work. So thats what i'm talking aboouuuut!!!! 

This week we found a lady Cecillia cool lady. We got her reference from an old investigator. So we went to go contact her. When she opened the door we asked her if this person lives here. She said thats me. Well it was awesome she was super willing to let us because just barely left her daughter to school and she was super depressed. Well God works in Mysterious ways. So we left her house feeling really pumped. But it turns out she made her own decision not wanting anything. Ahhhhhh!

We also found a guy named Pablo Pedro. Kinda crazy guy. He want to get baptized in a river. and thinks with his faith if he gets baptized in the rivers that are polluted disgusting that nothing will happen to him. He told my comp that he was a man with little faith haha which was really funny and when I gave a scripture to Pablo to read he read it like how I did in the house of Grandma. But with a Jewddist Priest voice. I couldn't hide the laugh.

Well Miguel is a good guy he just doesn't understand why their needs to be one church. Which means he fully hasn't felt like the church is true. He's still reading the BoM which is awesome. But he also drinks. He want able to go to church because he was super hung over.

Arturo is really the only progressing investigator that we have. But he likes to drink wine. He wasn't able to go on Sunday. But we had steak conference so we decided to bring him to the priesthood session. Which was really boring and over the head of Arturo. Hopefully he doesn't start getting cold.

This week is a new start we have some pretty good plans for this coming week pray for me that I can find the people that are waiting for the gospel to change there lives forever.

I love you all

Hey Family!!

Hope everything is chillin like a villain! Thats awesome that you guys had Fall break! I always remember when I finished fall break basically everything starts coming all at once Mom's birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I always like to hear that everyone is doing their own little thing. Riv that movie sounds sweet, write it down and we will go see it together and I'll take you out on your "1st date"? haha and Laur thats sooo funny about Bronson I feel like he doesn't do very good in front of crowds. Remember the nail in the cup that went through his hand?? Wow Waders going into the big leagues with deers. I better be seeing a dead deer with you standing by it on my email next week!! Remember when we went hunting and you threw up all night because of bad Whoppers!

Well this week were able to do changes. Me personally i'm not a fan of changes. Its just a bunch of stress. Waking up supa early making sure everyone gets on time. Ya Ya It was a bitter sweet saying bye to E. Pedrero he was a good comp we didn't have anything in common just work. But I'm pumped to be with My good friend Elder Rojas!!

In this time of the month.. I love it because it starts to calm down the heat to about 80 degrees and its awesome. For the past week its been raining which I also love but the bad thing is during the rain its hard to get the people out of their holes. And I always think oh just wait until you go to utah! haah I think the coldest time Ive ever been in my life was when we went on the deer camp up in the bowl with dad. I never forget that haha! Also this time here in Mexico everyone celebrates Dia de los Muertos. Which means Pan!!!!!! and our bishop is a pan maker so I'm stoked because that means that we are going to eat pan de muertos! 

In Mexico they have a tradition putting a table in their living room and put portraits of the people that have died in their family and then on the mesa they put things on the table like coca, tortillas, beans, fav shirt. because they think that God lets the dead from heaven come down and live hear on earth. Its a little weird and everyone says that they're Catholics, but I like this time.

Also this week I had a chance to go and do divisions with a newbie. Elder Austin fresh out of the MTC. Ahh I had soo much of Deja vu. It was awesome to look back and see how far i've came. I really should be thanking God a lot more for loving me enough to help progress and become who I am! This time last year I was crying tears of joy and worry about my new brother who was about to be born. I was in the middle of Mexico with a little bit of spanish that I new. With my thoughts 7 hours aways thinking about you guys. Well Happy birthday Little Ro Ro! You are so amazing and cant wait to get a hold of your little baby rolls!! Hopefully by the time I get home you be able to crawl!! haha I love you guys.

The work is pretty cool here in Benito! One of my fav Scriptures is in Jaun 16:33 and thats what I love of being a missionary. Helping bring happiness with things that with last forever not just for a little while.

Love you all

Well ya my birthday is done, I'm a twenty year old!

I love you guys soo much! I feel like at home you guys celebrated more then I did here!! For the birthday we didnt do much, it was a Sunday and that's when it's pretty busy for us! A member invited us in the night to eat hamburgers with them because she said that she wanted to do something that would remind me of home!

ahhhhhh I'm writing on this really old computer in this old broken down cafe and it deleted everything ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and my comp has changes so he wants to go and say good bye to everyone. 

But this week we've been able to do a bunch of service which was pretty cool. Service with a smile! We were able to cut down a jungle in the back of a neighbors yard!

Then a few hours later, it was pretty cool and we found a golden family. We helped them shovel in a gravel pile. The mom said that she didn't want to get in trouble with the police because they had gravel on the road. So she told us that at that moment she was praying that a drunk guy would come by and she could pay him to help her out. Well God sent us! (2 drunk guys ha ha) She was so grateful and humble.

I testify that service really opens heart of the people!

I love you guys soo much!

I'll write more next time!

Love Elder Roberts

Hey guys! 

Hopefully everything is doing well... Hopefully y'all were able to see conference and see the 3 new apostles.. Hopefully you guys partied your hearts out with the birthday of Laur.... Hopefully it hasn't gotten cold there is Good ole Utah.

This week has been pretty hectic and stress full. (the reason why my hair line is so far back) On sunday some punks (my first comp Elder Hernandez) got in a fight with a guy and he threatened to hunt the missionaries down and kill them. So they got scared and called Pres. So basically Monday, tuesday and wednesday we were getting missionaries out of their house and cleaning it all up. Also on tuesday president wanted all the trainers and their comps (newbies) heading to Xalapa early tuesday morning. They left at 4:30 in Ado (a fresh bus) So all of Tuesday we weren't able to sleep because... The punk elders pres was also sending them out of their area. So basically all of Tuesday we were running on 3 hours of sleep. The mission life is amazing because God blesses us if we are obedient even when we wake up the next day energized for a new day. Its the best.

A little about the work here in Benito. Well this area has been one of my hardest area. Im not sure if its just because I haven't had a lot of time to focus in the area. But God has blessed us we have been able to see a lot of milagros. Well we have found our Homie Arturo he's life 26 and he finished his doctor degree he really loves the church. On monday we had a lesson with him about the word of wisdom He was a little bugged because he really likes his wine and beer. But he loves the church so he's willing to take little steps. Next we have Miguel he's a homie he's like 32 years old and he works in the mariachi (one of my goals to baptize) He's reading he just still doesn't feel sure about baptism

We have the pastor. One day my comp and I were talking in english because my comp knows english real well. and this guy stopped us and started talking in english perfectly. He reminds me of a guy from the 70s with his glasses and his looking like house. He is really interested in the church. I have a feeling he's going to teach his congregation from the book of mormon. So please please pray for the guys that they can get baptized.

We also have this family from iris that are really cool but the mom doesn't want to get married. Stupid husband. its alright i'm over it.

I love you guys soo much. thanks for the package. I love you guys more then the Lamanites hate the Mormons. My birthday wish is just write me a letter. Nothing big just a letter.

I love you all. Stay sweet

Mexico at 5 in the morning.
