30 July 2012, Culiacan Mexico

Hola Familia,

Well this week has gone by pretty fast but has been pretty tiring too! It was pretty fun to have 2 other elders in the house but for some reason wore me out more too haha. We went on divisions with them for part of the day when they would leave the Seminario. We had the chance to go out to our other area that we don´t get to focus on as much with the elders too. It was cool because we got to visit a few refrences over their who look like they have a lot of potential. It´s definitely hard to work well in 2 areas, and that´s why we kind of end up focusing more on the area we live in! But we can´t forget about the other one completely either ha.

Our district has been doing really well. We´ve been doing well completing with the goals we have set, so we had the chance to go bowling today! It ended up being really fun and was cool to do something different for P-day. We usually have the district meetings in the morning too, but we´re going to have them at night now. So it´ll be interesting to see how things go with the new schedule.

Elda and Senovia, 2 of the investigators we found selling donuts have been doing really well this week. We had the chance to teach them about the Plan of Salvation and helped them to realize more the importance of reading the Book of Mormon. If they don´t know that the Book of Mormon is true, they won´t know if any of the other stuff we´re teaching them is true! Luckily, they both have accepted the challenge well and we´re excited to see how things go with them this week. Besides that we´ve realized that we need more people to teach because we only have a few left that seem to be really interested in learning more. This week we´re hoping to work on finding a lot more people to teach and talked with a couple people in the Church that can go visit investigators with us.

It´s good to hear that everybody is doing well at home and I need to thank you all for the support you give me! I really appreciate the little notes I get from you all. Sorry that I´m lame and don´t get the chance to respond to all of them! You´re all in my prayers and I hope that you have an amazing week. Never forget how important you are because you all are children of God!

Elder Carlson
