Don't Hate

hey your probly gonna kill me, but im way out of time today.  what basically happened was that they told me i had to send pic-chus to make a slide show for the fools that are finish-un their missions.  well basically i  accidentally took way to much tiempo pick-un out pic-chus and then all of a sudden i realized i have no time.  but it was a good week.  we workin hard and having some success.  i had my first baptism in the area after 7 months here in pueblo nuevo.  it was an 8 year old boy.  technically it should only count for the branch, but they're feelin bad for me, so they let us teach him.  but i felt happy and the members were all happy.  hopefully we can use that baptism to find other ones.
   im not really thinkin alot about home still.  in the whole district we are kind of down.  we dont have a lot of investigators or people to baptize.  so there is a ton ton ton to do.  i like it though because i dont have a lot of time to think about other things.
   i had two pretty cool experiences this week that helped me alot.  first was in my interview with president.  i expressed my concerns that i felt like i had my faith very low because it had been so long without a baptism.  he talked about abinadi and asked how many baptisms he had.  i said zero.  then he told me that i had done alot of things that i may never even know. he talked about my old comp elder velasques and how when he got home he imidiately asked for a calling and wanted to work.  and other things like that. i cant really explain it but he really made me feel that i had accomplished more than i thought.
  the other one was last night.  a family invited us to dinner, so we went. (obviously)  after we ate we were talking.  we all laughed alot then later the mom said oh how we are going to miss elder jacob when he leaves.  it was kind of a sad moment, but i really felt the love of the family, and that i have been something special for them.  so i feel good.  i hope that i have accomplished Gods purpose for me here and helped change someones life.  who knows.  maybe the kid we baptized will grow up to be the first guatemalan prophet.  ha.  well im super out of time.  i love you all have a good first week of school.  talk to you later
