Cliff Notes

August1

Hello Everyone!

We just got here with 15 short minutes to write!  Wow!  Here are the “Cliff Notes” for the past week:

  • Elder Nuñez is my new companion.  He is from Santiago Chile.
  • Elder Miranda got a new companion who lives in the USA but his parents are Mexican.  His name is Elder Breton.
  • They are both super awesome and the four of us are working really hard.
  • There are still lots of changes from the new mission president and the whole mission is changing (which is a good thing…not that it was bad before, but changes help a lot.  It’s like a new year even though the old year wasn’t a bad one =D)
  • We have a lot of investigators and very little time.
  • Ramon Rodrigez is the closest to his baptism and he is very excited.
  • Our biggest challenge is helping people to attend church.
  • Suddenly, everyone started giving us references (By the way, if you know anyone who you can invite to recieve the missionaries, invite them!  It never hurts and the worst they can do is say no.  Even when they aren’t interested, 99% are grateful for your thoughtfulness rather then offended by the invitation).
  • My companion sprained his ankle and we had to go to the hospital.  That is the biggest reason that we are here late (in the internet café).
  • He is doing fine and will get to study with several of the members in our branch while I go work with one of the priests that is preparing to serve a mission.

Well, that’s about all the time I have.  Thanks so much for your letters*!  I can’t wait to see you all soon!  Have a fantastic week!

Love,
Elder Carter

P.S.  Here’s a picture of me and Elder Nuñez.  He is super awesome and will be my very last companion.  We are already best friends!  Enjoy!

*Two quick apologies for overdue letters:  First, I am searching for postcards but I didn’t think they would be so hard to find.  I found some but they weren’t that great.  Don’t worry Jace, I’ll find some cool ones downtown once my companion gets better.  Second, I forgot to send a letter that I wrote about 2 months ago to Courtney Dickson – Sorry! (it’s a long story, but right now the letter is in the chapel…)  Everyone else, if I haven’t replied, send me a quick email and I’ll try to write… I’m a bit disorganized and I’m sure I haven’t responded to a few other people.  Please forgive me!  Thanks!  You’re all super awesome!!!  Have a great week!!!!!
