Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the Lord, and they shall fish them;
and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain,
and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. Jeremiah 16:16

Hard Work is Paying Off!

I’m great, like always, for being a missionary!

Well first off, there is a kid here who got his call to some small islands off the coast of Africa y he asked me for weeks where do you think I will go?  I said Africa y he said that is too far.  But I was right the whole time. 

Well we got two new Investigators this week.  One is named Antonio. He works at his daughter’s laundry mat, the one we take our clothes to. He told us he is sharing what we are teaching him to his daughters, but  because of the holidays he didn’t come to church this Sunday because he was working at the laundry mat, but we have a appointment today at 6 with him. We are so happy. Then there is Estavan who visited the church before y accepted baptism on may 23. We are so happy.  Both of them are doing great! Then we gave a goal to Tonita for baptism, but she is having a baby so she wants to wait for 3 to 4 months. But a less active name Dafnie y her family are visiting church again because every Wednesday we ate with them y do a lesson. One less active family started to come back. It is Celico, our investigator family, but they are visiting another church y drinking so we cant visit them we are sad about that.
Me y Garcia together again.

Well on Wednesday, me y Elder Garcia, my papa dad on my mission (my first companion), did splits together! I talked in every lesson y contacts y then Garcia asked them if they understand me y they said yes. I was so happy that people are understanding my no good Spanish. It seems like all the hard work is paying off! It was great to do splits with Garcia. We work so good together

Well today y tomorrow we are going to fast as companions for our area y the members y less actives y are investigators y to find new ones. Well today was cambios (transfers) but we are both staying here so these next 6 weeks we are going to fulfill our goals y make this area the best it can before Elder Mena leaves on May 25, because he been here since the end of December y the leaders told him  he will leave but we are not toosure. Love you all y thanks for the love y support y prays. Love always, Elder VanBuskirk ADIOSS!!!!!!!

How is Nate doing with his papers?  Did Nate find a school?  How is Franky y Nate doing about Shaun? Tell Nate and Fran to have fun at LDS Prom! Wow, and tell all the brothers good job on getting 4.0 honor roll!  Sounds like you have a lot of work to do still unpacking both big garages. I bet if I was there it will all be done.

I love reading the book Jesus the Christ!  I can’t stop reading it. I’m in chapter 13.  Tell Nate to read it too.

I don’t need anything. I’m happy. I’m still waiting for package from the the ward y yours y the garments.  But no more games. It is a new rule our president said.   We are missionaries, not kids.  But don’t worry. Candy is still Ok. Some more music will be nice. It is great to listen to for studying y exercise.  I’ve got to go now. I love you a ton. Thanks for everything. We are trying to obey all the rules so my hour is up. Love you y say hi to all.
