HI MOM!!! This week was great! I’m so glad that you’re doing well and that everything is going well! Here there is no Thanksgiving but we got contacts and will be having a Thanksgiving dinner 😉 So we’re stoked! This week was good, lots of work and it went great!! There were lots of people we saw that want to change! I’ll explain in dad’s email more!!! The best thing was this though that happened yesterday! But the craziest thing, it was more just funXD I was with another missionary since we were in intercambios and there were all these kids playing soccer outside so we said hey let’s go talk to them and see if they’ll let us play! So we start talking with one kid and then they allllllllllllllllll come, it was like 20 kids! The oldest was 15! Then like all these 7,8,9 year olds! They asked me my name, I’m like Elder Walker! Then I always say I’m the nephew of Paul Walker the actor from Fast and Furious! They all believed me XD They all ran grabbed their cameras and were taking pics since I was ¨famous¨. It was so funny we then got to play with them and then after we got to teach all them lesson 3 about, faith, repentance, baptism and everything it was super fun! XD But that’s about it! I’m loving this work and the way the Lord uses us to bring forth his work!! I know this is true, there are other missionaries that might have this as something super important but I know that I gotta do all I can to help everyone I can and not waste time!!! I love you all! I hope that this week off will be nice! And don’t have too much fun without me!! Hahaha LOVE YOU!!
Hey dad !! LOADS of questions and I’ll try my best to answer all of them! But I’ll just start off with saying it’s not the states and a lot of members here don’t know how to do everything! But the hermanas ended up having a member who could break in pretty much so they could get the other key they had!!
Umm I’ll start off with the week—it was great and we got to work a lot and had help from other areas since we had intercambios and got to work double this week!! It was great and well, Sebastian was a man that truly wants to come to church and change! We got to teach him in the church building 3 times this week! We were very excited for Sunday that he would be able to come!! He wasn’t able to Idk what happened. He hasn’t answered his phone but the best was with Hugo!! A man that just got work in a pueblo an hour and a half a way and last week came since he was looking for a church and he is doing great!! This Sunday he woke up at 5:45 since he wanted to get here at 9 knowing that’s when the meeting started but there were problems with the buses so he showed up late but he came and then after wards we invited him to come to our lunch with us and it was amazing!! After we got to teach him lesson 1, the restoration!! GREAT!!! He was crying and when I got the chance to teach about the Book of Mormon and I asked him if he could read the last paragraphs of the introduction and then he started crying and asked if the church has really been restored and I said yes and then he asked this is his book? I said yes and then he said and the Savior is coming again? I said yes and he broke down, the spirit was so strong and he has such a desire to truly change and become the best he can be!!! But that was the best thing ever!! I love the mission! The Bishop has his counselors trying to help the less actives but we’re really here to teach! Our ward is stronger than most so the members work very hard!!!
It’s all great!!! I love it here and hope you’re all doing well!!! I pray for you all!!! Please be safe!!!

Hey dad, how’s my old man doing! Everything is going goood! This week was lots of fun and well, there was a lot that happened! So we got to go to another area for a day and yeah it was fun! It’s been super hot here and it’s been fun working! We didn’t hear from Sebastian at all this week idk what happened!! But there was Hugo we found out some stuff about him so I’m not sure what we gotta do, it’s just hard since he’s not living in any area because his work is all over. So he’s not part of a ward! But yeah it’s good! We got 3 more weeks of transfers so we’ll see how things go!! But I’m doing all I can!! I’m really focused on my studies and I’m learning a lot but still there’s loads to go!!!!! But I’m loving it here, I see I just need to practice a lot of my attributes XD That’s why I’m with my comps, I got something to learn from them!!! But I’m glad everything went well!!! I love it here and miss you guys… will be calling soon!!!
