Elder Anderson's letter this week was very short, but has a miracle for our family. I wanted to share our side before posting his short, but sweet letter!
After receiving his letter last week and hearing how the branch in Carboca needs strong active families, we decided to be more specific in our prayers for Elder Anderson. We began praying that he would find families that would accept the Gospel into their lives and they would be a great strength to the Branch. This is his letter this week:
Hey everyone!!! I don't have a lot of time to write this week so this is going to be a really short letter!! We are going to Hermosillo today at 4 for my 6 week interview. So I only have like 30 minutes to write today!! But I promise I will write more next week!!! But ya we're going to Hermosillo for my 6 week interview. It's just to check up on how I'm progressing in the mission. It's already almost been one transfer!! Can you beleive it?? It's honestly gone so fast!!
This week was a blur. I'm to think of stuff that I can share real quick.... We're teaching a family right now and they're way cool. They're the Family Rivera. The dad is less active and the mom isn't a member. They have a son named Mario and he's 15 and a daughter that is 18 or 19. Hopefully they will progress well and accept the gospel!! Also we had a family home evening this week with the District president's family. It was super cool and it was hilarious to see how similar and yet how different family home evening was in Mexico. That's all for now! I'm doing really good!! Still just trying to learn the language!!! I love you all and I'll write more next week!!
We will continue to pray for more families to teach , but now we have a specific family to begin to pray for!!! I know many of you pray for the missionaries, you pray for our son. I hope you will join us and Elder Anderson and pray for the Rivera family, and the Carboca Branch. I know the power of prayer and grateful that even though we are so far away, through the power of prayer we can help our missionaries!
