If you serve a mission faithfully and well, you will be a better husband, you will be a better father, you will be a better student, a better worker in your chosen vocation. Love is of the essence of this missionary work. Selflessness is of its very nature. Self-discipline is its requirement. Prayer opens its reservoir of power. ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

Me and My Comp, Elder Vidal, Eating

     Hey family! bueno para empezar, como esta todo!  Well the title of my letter is not suppose to sound happy, neither look happy because it wasn't.  It was just plain ugly and still is! well i have lost like 6 or 7 pounds in 5 days!  On Monday night I went to bed around 915 and woke up at 11:30 and started throwing up!  Well after the first few times there is no more stuff in your body to throw up except acid, so from 1 in the morning till 6 that's what I did! I got no sleep and never in my life have I experienced pain like that! So then i called presidents wife and she told me the flu is going around and i need to stay in bed all day! Its now Wednesday and i still feel horrible, pain in my whole body, headaches, and nausea 24.7 plus its been raining for 4 straight days and that does not help! well so that's my story of the week and i really only got one other thing to say cause we have not really done anything cause i cant!

    Well like i said we found a family, Ismael and Rosangel! they progress every time we go over there, but what i want to share today is what happened to Ismael. we were at his house and talking about the word of wisdom and we asked him to stop smoking! he said after the first time we came over something told him he needed to stop smoking. He told us he wants to stop smoking and the next thing he said was a shocker! he said, i smoked 3 packs a day, and now i have not finished a pack in 5 days! we were amazed and he has the determination to quit. Were excited for them and hope they continue to grow!  I know i didn't get transferred and have 6 more months here, but i have come to notice that my work here obviously is not done and someone needs me! 

     Well it sounds like everything in Arizona is doing really well! and mom what do you mean i didn't miss anything for spring break! do the words MARCH MADNESS not mean anything to you!!!! its the best time of the year! haha and of course Josh is cheering for NC! hey Josh is that point guard Lawson still playing? he is sooooo good!  How is Arizona doing?  I hope really good. Well sounds like the Suns are on a role without Stoudamire but are still a little short of Dallas, that stinks!  Thats to bad you guys couldn't go to Disneyland this spring break.  love that trip with the family! its been so long since the whole family has been together there.

     Um OK! so i looked at my blog and um that picture of me looks like I'm dying!! haha I'm soooo skinny in that picture its gross. But its a cool blog! well i looked at moms too and what happened to the room upstairs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lexi nice work, I'm proud of you! well i did catch one mistake with the room, that Tiger Woods picture and golf balls belongs( cough cough) to ME!! and will gladly be taking it back when i return! haha, sorry Josh but come on, its Tiger Woods.

    Well that's about all for me in the Dominican Republic! sounds like everything is nice and good, oh Dad! nice talk by the way! I loved it. It was amazing! Well, til next week, Conference weekend! woo hoo I'm so excited. OK i love you guys and will put more pictures up on flickr!
