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

Easter is the Best Holiday

Well, what a week. My companion is named Elder Lainez. He is from Honduras y he has one year in the mission. He is great y we are working so hard together. Well, I am leader of the district of sisters y Elders y they are opening a area. Well it was my first district meeting and I was so nervous. But it went great y afterwards they said they can feel my love y they are happy I’m their leader. Y I also baked them cookies.

So yesterday, just like the week before, we had no investigators in church. We worked so hard visiting them with members y just us also. But they didn’t go to church. It was sad, but we are still here working hard. Well we visited inv. Martha y she wants to get baptized on May 10 on Mother’s Day. So we are going to visit her tonight and talk about the plan of happiness. We also visited inv. Manuel y Rosa, and Brother Walter came. He shared his testimony about how he used to drink y the power y blessing the gospel gives us. It was an awesome lesson. The spirit was so strong. Well Rosa lost her papers y has a appointment to get new ones on 23 of April so we are still going to visit to help them out.

Well we want to work on this week finding new people to teach. It is hard here, but we are going to work hard with pray y love to find new people so please pray for us. Thanks.

Well we went very far y we went to a ranch where there was goats y mangos. We are eating a lot of them because it is mango season. There was even a crocodile there. It was small but it was fun. We went with Sister Karina.

So that was my week y of course like my family tradition, I woke up early on Easter morning y saw the sunset y I sang some songs y I read some scriptures. When I was done I felt the spirit so strong y the love of Chirst. Well, I know that Easter is the best holiday y Happy Easter to all of you. Love you so y thanks for all the prayers y love. ADIOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Elder VanBuskirk
