22 October 2012, Culiacan Mexico

Hola Familia,

Well another week has gone by and things are going pretty well. We´ve been having some more success this week with people accepting goals to be baptized. We met a pretty cool family this week too but unfortunately they weren´t able to come to church with us on sunday. We have a good amount of investigators right now but probably the biggest challenge is getting them to come to church. One of the things we want to do more is invite more of the members to help us out with this. We need to start having members come with us in the lessons and motivate the members to go and pass by for them on sunday. It really makes me happy to see people who are concerned about making sure that others feel comfortable and really want to be their friend. I wish we could all be more like that, the Lord taught us all to love one another, and even though it may be hard sometimes it´s possible! I´d have to agree that the best way to learn to love someone, is by serving them and praying to the Lord for them!

The weather is getting a little nicer here now and it´s been pretty enjoyable to not be sweating around going to places haha. Does not seem at all like a cold winter, but I´m good with that. :) Elder Collett and I have been doing pretty well too. We´ve been putting some more goals together as a companionship and look for ways to be more helpful. He´s a pretty funny guy and makes me laugh a lot at the silly things he thinks of doing and does... One of the things we´re trying to work on is talking more to eachother in spanish. It´s really hard sometimes to do that, but it´s the BEST way to learn a different language and not forget it!

It´s awesome to hear how well everyone is doing at home and all the good news. Thanks for all your support and hopefully everybody can get into the holiday spirit! There´s not too much Halloween things here, but we´re going to be doing some Día de los Muertos activity in november, so we´re excited for that! We´re going to head to some cemetarys with our wards and then teach some people more about how they can research theiry ancestry. Don´t know too much about it besides that though!.. Have an awesome week and thanks for all the prayers, love, and support!

Elder Carlson
