Happy Mother's Day

I know its a little late to be saying happy mothers day, i wish i could have told you yesterday... oh ya now i remember, i did. ha but i guess its good to have it written as well. so happy birthday mom. i hope all your wildest dreams come true.
well alot happened in the last week. we finished another change in Pueblo nuevo. i knew that either elder jack or myself would probly be leaving, i just didnt know who it would be. but in the end we found out the elder jack was the chosen. its funny because whenever people joke about where an elder is going to go they always say they will go to a place called champerico because suposedly its like the hottest place in the world. ha im sure elder jack was excited when they announced that he was being changed to champerico. ha poor guy. but it will be a good expericence for him.
the My new companion is a guatemalan named elder velasquez. hes a stud. i really have liked working with him. its cool because he can relate alot more with the people than any of my other comps have been able to. he can talk about locas sports teams and places they have been and other stuff like that. this week we found 2 families that seem to be posotive, i think there is success coming.
here they celebrate mothers day on the 10, which was thursday. so my comp and i bought roses for all the moms in the branch. we had a little mothers day activity and we gave them all their roses. they all shed tears of joy and grattitude, and hoisted us on their shoulders and paraded us around town like returning war heros. ha not really but they were all happy and greatful. its funny, one of the things ive learned is that when you take time to do little nice things for others you generaly feel better about yourself. i think alot of gospel priniciples seem contradictary to the natural mind. but Gods ways are higher than our ways i guess. maybe one day we will understand it all.
well i hate to say it, but i gotta go. i gotta write some poeple and we gotta make invitations for the open house of the new church. ill let you know how it goes.
Once again happy mothers day. i love you all. have a good week and finish the school year strong. If at first you dont succeed. DO WORK.
Elder Jacobson
