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

Two Weeks Left and Not Dying in the Mission

Well hi family y friends. A lot of you know I will be home in two weeks!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a lot sad but the same time I’m more happy than ever y I’m not dying in the mission. I’m working hard to the finish.

Well yesterday we had investigator Rosario y Rodolfo y his wife Vicky in church yesterday. We were so happy. Well Cynthia couldn’t go to church y wasn’t there on Saturday for her appointment. But she still will get baptized on the 2nd. We were able to teach her about 10 commandments. Well she wants to get baptized, but is just missing the push to read the Book of Mormon y ask God to see if it is true, because she knows all the lessons.

Well we were finally after almost two weeks able to visit Peniel. We answered all of her questions about marriage y we taught her the law of chastity. Well she still wants to get baptized but didn’t go to church yesterday, so we are going to visit her this week to see what happened.

Well Rodolfo y Vicky went to church y we were able to teach about the 10 commandments y the first lesson y the Book of Mormon. Well we yesterday watched with them the Jose Smith full movie y they really loved it y liked it. Well Rodolfo really wants to get baptized but has a repenting problem to fix, so the bishop is going to visit him like a friend y to talk to him about his problem, so please pray for him.

Well we were able to teach Rosario about tithing y fasting y we did the early interview to see what she knows. Well she knows everything. The only problem is that she needs to keep reading the pamphlets y to buy glasses so she can read the Book of Mormon. She still has not read it yet so tonight as a family home evening we are going to talk about the Book of Mormon y watch a few videos with her y her family. Well, she knows the church is true because she prayed to God y got her answer, y the same about BofM. She wants to get baptized on the 2nd y wants her son to baptize her.  We are so so happy for her.

Well we are deciding to drop Carlos because after he was looking at anti-Mormon stuff we tried our best to help him by visiting him with members y we invited him to read the Book of Mormon y ask God if it is true. But now when we visit him he doesn’t look happy y he is putting work first y really doesn’t show any more that he wants to get baptized. So we are a lot sad for him. So please pray for him.

 Well I’m happy to see all these blessings God is giving me my last weeks of mission. Well love you all y can’t wait to see all of you again. Love you! Prayers for all of you peeps out there.
Love your friend
 Alex or Elder VanBuskirk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey what did all the VanBuskirk family say about me? Y are they all coming down when I come back? Will there be a lot of people there on that Sunday for my homecoming? I can’t wait.

Hey mom I really want tomorrow to buy pizza for my last meeting with my district in the mission, so I’m wondering if you don’t mind if you can put 15 dollars in my account please? With a lot of love. Thanks Mom, you are the best. It is because here in Mexico for all the elders is 2for1 because we are awesome.  Because we are elders here in Mexico, we have a discount in Dominos where we can buy two pizzas y we only pay for one of them.
