rain rain go away

well its raining... thats about all i have to say about that.
but other than that life is good. the works drives on whether it be sun or rain or snow (i wish). we had a really good week this week. elder velasquez and i have been going hard. sometimes we come home from lunch just to rest for a little while. then when its time to go out and work again we just look at eachother with exausted looks as if to say here we go again, then we get up and go out. we are slowly starting to see results for our diligence. we found two families this week and a bunch of other investigators that could be posotive. also we are starting to get help from the members. more and more poeple are inviting us to their house to eat. its either a sign that we are getting more confidence with them, or that they are planning to start putting poisen in the food little by little to finish us off once and for all. If you get a call from my Mission President saying i died of "natural causes" dont believe any of it.
yesterday was the dedication of our new church. it was way exciting for everyone. alot of trears were shed, but mainly just because i jamed my finger in the door and it hurt really bad. but more than the tears i just remember that everyone was so happy. in one of the talkes a lady, one of the first converts here, spoke of what the members had gone through in this area. they have been had their meeting house in like 10 different houses, and when they finaly had a building it wasnt secure and people always got in to steal stuff. but finally they have somewhere of their own. how cool right.
i have been studying alot about how to get a prayer anwered. i read in helaman 10 when the Lord gives nefi power that whatever he asks for he will recieve. i think one of the secrets is that nefi had already shown that he had so much faith that he would do whatever the lord told him. i think alot of times we know what we are supposed to do, but because of fear or whatever other thing we ignore the prompting and just wait for it to pass. they say the President Monson does what most people just think about doing. so ive been trying to learn to just do the things i feel like doing without thinking about it so much that i eventually miss the chance to do it. its sometimes way hard and awkward to stop a family in the middle of the road in front of a buch of people watching us like weirdos, but in the end who cares right. ha so im making some changes and doing some things. i love life. its hard, but i guess thats the point right.
well im out of time. i love you all. have a good graduation and start of summer break. while your all soaking up sun i will just be soaking. ha have a good week. talk to you later.
