February 28, 2011

Estoy bien y muy animado por esta porxima semana!!! Mi companero es Elder George y el es de Washington (Cerca de canada) El es super tranquilo y lleva poco tiempo en la mision, casi lo mismo que yo llevo pero igual poco tiempo jaja El romaba antes la mision y estudiaba en BYU!

That's enough Spanish for you today! My grammar is still horrible so who knows there might be some mistakes in there but hopefully all is well, haha.

How's everyone doing! I would be a liar if I said that this last week wasn't one of the hardest weeks of my mission so far. I got a new companion this last Tuesday and his name is Elder George. He is 20 years old and is from the State of Washington. he did Olympic rowing before the mission and other than that it sound like he just studied and hung out with his friends. Elder George and I literally have nothing in common but we get along well and I feel like we will have a lot of success together. We are setting up about 4 people to get baptized in this month and hopefully at least 2 or 3 of them get baptized! I am really having to step up and teach a lot more in the lessons now and also at lunch, in church and also in the street. I don't feel like I am ready for all of the responsibility that has been thrown on my shoulders but I know that the Lord thinks otherwise (and so does the mission president).

This last week was really good and we ended up teaching a lot of lessons and found a couple of new good people. I have transitioned well this last week but it has been really stressful with all of the changes and stuff. We have had a lot of help from Elder Catucuago and our other leaders and I am really thankful for everything they are doing for us.

Alejandra, Thomas and Sylvia are fine and it is starting to look like everything will be ok with them. I don't know what more we as missionaries can do for them but we will keep helping with the little things.

I was also glad to hear that you guys celebrated Grandpa's B-day at the house this last weekend. Just by looking at the pictures of all the work you guys have done to the house i am sure it was a blast (p.s. I can't wait to come back and enjoy the hot tub you put in!) How are Gma and Gpa? And the Dastrup's? I should send out more letters but the truth is, is that I am really lazy with writing letters and getting back to people, there just isn't much time! I wish I could have been there for the party but at the same time I wouldn't rather be anywhere than where I am at right now. I hope you guys know how much I love you and miss you and pray and think about you. You guys are are my world and I am so glad I am stuck with you forever.

Your son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend,
Elder Cody Dastrup
