last email, see you in a few days....

we were in a taxi and the mirror made my comps face look funny.. 
What does the mirror say? Sweet child? And your knee looks owey, did you fall?
yes SWEET CHILD!! haha and yes i did i tried to drive the ball to lay it up and i forgot that my shoes dont have traction.. 
Be careful!!! Love that the mirror was in English, is there a lot of English? Someone asked if it is safe in Oaxaca right now, I said I think so, Justin hasn’t said anything about it…so is it?
yes!!!  a ton is in english which i really dont get... haha ummmm its mexico... its the safest dangerous place there is... ;) haha jk... no i think so i havent heard anyting bad happening.. 

Happy happy Monday justin!!!! How are you feeling today? Last play of mission coming up-are you ready? Can you believe it? Really bitter-sweet huh? Tell me about the miracles and blessings you saw this is your white night goal coming along? Tell me about the scary stalker guy with the sisters and how you took care of him...
a few questions, will you stay at the church after white night until we contact you, or go home? Is the white night at your ward building? Want me to bring more ctr rings with us? Is Villanueva daughter first missionary in family to go?
Our week was full of ups and downs, well really ups just one down, Roy lost to north ridge, really ugly game offensively, Jax was in all of D again and had awesome game in on 17 tackles, of 49 defensive plays, they haven't posted stats yet so we are anxious to see, dad counted those off of huddle, they only scored 6 points on D, sad now tied with Fremont, but on top cause we beat them, we have Weber at Weber Wednesday because of uea weekend so fingers crossed, can't over look them!
I asked about Jax speaking with you and they have a new couple in the ward speaking with you he is schedule for November, at least you'll get to hear it-haha
Dads working hard to keep work going and 3 households getting checks :) Jordan seems to like his place, now we only see him for work...
Things here are chilly but having some warm days hoping homecoming will be sunny again :)
Anything we can do for you this last week before we see you Saturday-yea-so excited to see you!!!
I love you more than you know and treasure your great spirit that you bring to our family!!! We are beyond excited to be with you in Oaxaca and meet those whom you love and teach!!!! God be with you and keep you safe! Chat with you soon!
Love you tons

Is it an all day trip? I am so glad that you and comp are getting along so well and I know that you have been a great example to him and he with others will miss you desperately!
We posted your homecoming on fb and angelica, forgot her last name, and now she is married, and hunter, your former comp and another guy you served with and Nonu of course are all coming and asked for specifics, so great, and so many others, are planning to come also, we can show you when we are with you and see who else you would like to invite, Kaleb is anxious for you to get home, he has had a pretty rough year…Anyways, tell me about finding the new ones you did with the other elder last week? Love you experiences
yes it will be kind of an all day trip... maybe like half the day.. cCAN YOU BRING MY COMP A JOURNAL.... HE NEEDS A NEW ONE.. HAHA  but we found them just contacting and touching doors... it was super fun!! hhaha and then we were in this really dangerous part during the night time and Elder Peterson told me to take my mormory out of my camera and hide it and so i did.. but i didnt know why.. so then he told me it was dangerous adn i said no worries just say a prayer and we are good.. and we ended up being just fine! hahah
Wow, power of prayer and safety of your soul is answered, I am sure he had you take card out so that if your camera was stolen you wouldn’t loose your memories, or pictures….yes I will grab him a journal, do you need anything, what can we do to make things go smoothly? I love that you found them through knocking doors, does he live in the dangerous place, and I love your faith in prayer and trusting in the holy ghost to be safe, please always listen to that spirit!
So whats on tap for fhe tonight?
nope just the journal...  i think.. and we were just contactin high in the moutain.. and it got dark.. he doesnt live high the investigator does.. haha tonight we are going to go talk with angels mom to see how things went and to see if he has permisison to be baptized this week!! 
We  will pray for Angel, and for his moms heart to be softened…How did the visit go when you took the primary pres with you to that family?Are you happy? Do you have water in your apartment? Dad and I are both bringing large suitcases to get things home in, so we will have plenty of room to fit a small child if you want-haha, jk, although jax would like a younger sibling 😊 What  did you do for pday today? Did the boys all write you this week?
yes they all wrote me and we played soccer and bball..  we have water and gas.. ya we are good!!  that appiontment ended up falling threw.. hahaha but osunds good because some of the elders want me to take little things home for them.. 
Sounds like a fun day!Be careful on how much you say you will take home-haha!Hear from anyone else? Jordan took Shania to a corn maze this weekend, (we had a family date night) is she still writing you? We all went, it was fun, I am thinking we will do family date night at least once a month so that he gets dating again-haha!I got pres madsen a black tie with red flowers and the Utah logo at the bottom, looks Spanish and has Utah on it! I bet he is sad you are leaving, no more rivalry to keep alive….will you have one last interview with him before next week?At the devotional do you all bear your testimonies?Do they live near the mission home? Is the devotional at mission home?I still need address for stake center so we can meet you Saturday night…do you know which wards meet there and maybe I can find it on lds locator

I wish Jordan would date her more, but I don’t think his heart is in it…what a great man  your pres has been, we will for sure have to go to homecoming and invite to wedding 😊 I will look up the building and see what I can find, dad is asking how far from your apartment is monte alban? Will you get to ride around with us Saturday night, or can we go with where ever you need to go?
ya on saturday night you can be with me... i was thinking i could show you around a little bit... my house is like an hour away from monte alban... 
Sounds awesome, so excited, I am afraid this week is going to go slowly, hoping to get lots done before we leave and jax having a game in the middle of the week will help too, fingers crossed they win!!! Need to keep the shield in roys trophy case 😊 dad and boys had today off because it rained like crazy, so its been a lazy run a few errands and do laundry day, heading out to roy tonight to help with team dinner and hoping it doesn’t rain too much more this week so we can stay on top of work and keep guys busy while we are gone….Dad says, he cant wait to see you my friend, be super duper to the end!Will it still be light when we get to you about 7:30 Saturday?

we will have one more chat time

HOLA Mom and Dad... this past week like normal was a busy week and lots of ups and downs... haha we still havent been able to teach Lazaro... and we have constantly been trying to call and send him messages to read and pray... but he hasnt done anything.... and so hes not really doing his part... but tomorrow we have a lesson with him and we are going to be strait up with him and let him how we feel and tell him that he has to make some sacrifice to be able to make this work... but he did come to church yesterday... so tomorrow we will see what happens with him.... his daughter flor is doing good she is online to be baptized and we are teaching her super good and she is learning very well!! and remember that lady Teresa?? we found her by a miracle...haha welp.. we talked with her on saturday and she is really cool she is a doctor... and she believes us God.... not so much in Jesus Christ but she has a desire to learn more... and she came to church yesterday! and we are going to talk with her on WEd... and she accepted baptism, and she even is thinking about the 22nd... to get baptized!! which would be really amazing! i hope soooooo!! haha 

And this kid named angel is 14... and wants to be baptized but his mom is super cristain..and when angels aunt talked to angles mom about him getting baptized because the aunts a member.. the mom Marrisol strait up said no......  but we didnt lose faith.. she said no on thursday... and Yesterday we went out to talk with the mom... Ringle me and a Member a x missionary... and we got her to think about it more... now she is going to think and talk with Angel and see if its something that he really wants to do... and its not just somthing that he likes.... because its a life long commitment... and i totally understand the mom... jjust wants him to understand... but it was a huge miracle.... that the mom is having a change of heart... i think its because of the faith of Angel... ha but we are going back on tomorrow to see how things went-..... 

this week we have splits with the DL... he is coming here with me in my area.. and Ringle is leaving... and we also might have splits with the asistants... we shall see.... but we have another busy week.... i love you guys and hope you have a great week! thanks sooo much mom for always sharing your testimony with me... it really strengthens my testimony!! loove you guys!! 

How expensive are garments that are spandex.. because a guy in the ward wants to know... 
sooo  i was looking at the temple schedual.. and it doesnt have sessions in the morning on tues... but it does on wed... so i madee some adjustments to the things that we are going to be doing... :) 
With the car.. where are you going to rent the car from?? the airport?? 
You certainly have been busy, and seeing miracles, what a great blessing, I will add names to temple again, and Angels, So how was zone conference? The croc pictures makes me laugh, huge, where is it? First time seeing it? How did you happen across Teresa again?Any more said about us coming next week?
the Zone conference was super good we talked about putting baptismal dates and helping people to progress to that date! when i accidently called that member that doesnt live in our ward.. and everyhting good with you coming!! haha no problems right now..
George and Lynn say hi, boys helping them move furniture to other house and she said that they may have sold theirs to some people with kids, makes me very sad to see them go….I know that you have been super busy, but have you had any service opportunities lately? Do you have a ponderize this week? Love all the pictures thank you! Chatted with Elder N again this morning and he is super excited to see you again, Other comps home here in Utah you want me to try and find to invite?
tell them hi back! and that im really gonna miss them.. we gave little sdervices here and  there nothign big big.. im excited to see him aswell.. we are gonna have to make enough food for  him and his cousins.. ha.. umm i cant think of anyone right now... ha 
So funny that you mentioned the food, we were joking about it last night, Jace brought it up, make more food for the polys-hhahha  are you craving anything that we can bring with us, soap, chocolate haha! Which building will  you be doing white night in? And can you get a time for the devotional for Tuesday night?
soo the dinner.. starts at 6... if all the misisonaries get there on time... and then at 7 is the devotional and testimony mtg..
and presidents wife sayed that you can be in the deviotnal part.... 
Awesome we will be there at 7, Dad just showed me pictures of you watching conference with pres on fb, you look great, are you cutting your hair yourself? You may have to give jax a hair cut-haha! I love that you had investigators at church yesterday, for testimony meeting right? Did they love it and did you bear your testimony?
yes it was supe good and we actaully had a inv, get up and bear his testimony... but at the end he ended up asking for some money to help his friend get out of jail.... talk  about kill joy.. 
So funny, really funny, but sorry it is a kill joy! But you have to laugh!  Just  checked on garments, dri lux is $4 for a top, they can order online, does he know that?
ohhhh no he didnt know that.. i didnt know that.. haha yes it was really funny... it was actaully lazaro.. Rauls dad... ha
He has to have his membership  number to set up an account and order from lds distribution center, I would think they would send to mexico, how do they get them down there now? Well at least Lazaro felt comfortable enough to bear testimony and that he could ask for money, did any one give him some? 😊 still rainy rainy there, do we need to bring cold weather clothes-haha!
it rains off and on.. today it hasnt rained... but oyu could bring a little jacket if you want... not a big one.. noeone gave him money no.... haha but we told him that we would help by putting his name in the temple!! the church we will be at is close to the baseball stadium... and the baseball stadium is on blvd Eduardo Vasconcelos and it you go by the baseball stadium onto the other side of the freemway take your first left and just go strait until you get to the road called Amapolas and the stake center is on the right side... 
Awesome directions, we will map it and print it so we don’t get lost 😊 both wards in same building right?
yes but ill show you how to get there saturday night when you are here... how to get to our ward... building.. ill tell him to find me and ill see about the Villanuevas... i am almost positive that they have face... ill check! 
There are some people that have requested from your area of the world, but I haven’t accepted because not sure how they know you and if they will be stalkers-haha! Can be scary
haha ok thanks.. ha it can be scurry.. actually talking about stalkers.. we are about to call a guy that has been giving some of the sisters in our zone problems.. we are going to meet withhim..... but no worries! haha its all good!! love you mom and dad! 
We love you too! Be super safe, super hero!
God speed-love home
See you soon!
love you guys! have a good week! 
Right back at ya! Big smiles!!

we found a croc.... 

this is Elder Robins.. hes the secretary of materials... we have to talk and  be with him a lot.. not only for materials... but because hes a great funny guy! 

thats a tree... 
this is a really cute girl that we met in a house when we were teaching a inv... her name is Nicole.. 

Do they climb the tree to get stuff at top, looks like pencil led…I want to bring the little girl home with us, what do ya think

me too... shes super fun... 
no they stay away from those trees.... ha

the Sone meeting was a big success.. :) 
 Awesome was that your whole zone? Are they the ones working to get white night done? Are they all as excited about it as you are?
yes thats the whole zone... last night we got informed of something that some of the sisters were doing that they shouldnt do.... but presidnet talked with them today... so hopefully that resolved the problem.. but yes we are all excited! we send out texts to keep them happy and excited!! 
Awesome, your mission pres is so great, when I hear stories of other ones, I feel like we have been very fortunate that all of you have had great one…Do you know the dl that will do splits with you, like him, been before with him?
and yes the DL is my brother on the mission... ha his name is Elder Silva.. hes a great kid! hes from west jordan... 
I think it will be good for him too, Have fun with Elder Silva, I know that you have sent pictures with him before, that’s a friend for a lifetime! Work is still moving along, the guys have been setting rocks in north ogden and have other stuff coming up so we are happy for the fall! See a lot of construction there, you know that dad will want to operate a backhoe if he can find one in Oaxaca 😊 Teaching fhe tonight? Who and what?
hahaha nice!! ha yes its gonna be good! and im excited to be with him.. good for them!! lots and lots of work! is jordan ajust working or is he studying somthing!? 

did you get my Qs.. in my first big email?? 

and we are teaching Carolina and we are going to maybe be going with the primary pres.. and we are going to talk about the Boook Of Mormon.. 
We are renting a car from Alamo in the airport, we usually do it that way and it works great, Temple plans sound awesome! 😊 I think the spandex garments are about $4 a piece, I will double check…Carolina a child that why you are taking primary pres?Jordan is just working, he takes an institute class, but has stopped with the pathways program, not really sure why….
well if you want presidnet villanueva can totally come and get you when you get to the airport... because by 7 the white night will be over... so he can get you if you want he is willing... haha you can decide.. 
we are taking her because she has 3 little kids and 2 arent baptized yet... and the mom is less active in the church.. and we are going with her to have more support... 
We will just rent the car and that way we will have it for the week, that are so kind to offer, and we will for sure love to spend time with them, so where will you be that night after white night? I guess I have your number we can call and tell you when and where we are….so excited! What time is church on Sunday?
alright sounds good.. we have church at 8 in the morning and then the second ward at 12.... and then the villanuevas are going to invite us to eat... after church..

Sounds perfect! They are wonderful people and we love them so much for taking good care of you and are so excited to meet them in person!I have a ponderze for you, Words of Mormon, verse 18 but I’m changing it a bit” Wherefore, with the help of these, Elder Weaver and Elder Ringle, by laboring with all the might of their bodies and the faculty of their whole souls, and also the prophets, did once more establish peace in the wards” The work that you have accomplished on your mission is amazing and we are so proud of you for working so hard and being obedient, it shows in the work that is moving forward!What is your ponderize?
there is a scripture that i read today that is in Psalms... but i dont remember what verse.. but it talks about service and sacrifice and the blessijng.. it truely is a blessing to serve others.. 
I think so too, you are truly happier when serving others and losing your self in service, you often find that things that trouble you don’t seem so bad!

ya  we will have one more chat time!! i love you guys have a fantastic week i love you guys and hope you all have a great week! i lmiss ya tons and good job jax at killin it in ball i cant wait to see you play my friend! keep having fun! love you guys chat with you next week!! ;) and see you soon Love Elder Weaver
Yep once again, that hour went way to fast! Please be safe and have a week full of miracles, treasure the spirit and follow its promptings! Pray for Jax and roy on Thursday 
Love you so much, my Elder Weaver, Justeroo, take good care of you
Love mom

finishing strong....

Hola!! we had a good week and a super busy one! to be honest i am very tired and exhausted at the moment.. at we report with the Stake Presidency and we are talking alot with our asistants.. they are super excited for us.. haha but we were able to have 6 inv in the conference and it was sooo good! like you mom i really did enjoy alot of the talks, one i really liked was Uchtdorfs when he talked about the plan of happiness.. it was super great! Flor is doing good.. Lourdes isnt progressing how we want she really isnt putting in her part.. but we are talking with Lazaro over the phone each night to teach him because he goes to work early and gets home around 9 and he lives kind of far from us.. so we are teaching him over the phone when we get home.. haha its something new and kind of fun.. Good for jax! i hope that they can keep playing good and i know that jax earned that spot just keep working your butt off.. haha and its gonna work out.. i know it will... this last week we were ableto teach alot of people and have some new experiences!! we walked into a little store of a inv. that we have been teaching for a while and she had a friend there that was super catholic.. and when we sat down she jsut attacked us... haha she said so many bad things about us... like us being racists and how the Bom is false and all kind of stuff... needless to say me and my comp didnt blow up... and by the end of our visit.... she was one of our Best Friends... ;) hahaha and i talked with Hna Madsan and she said that you can come for the Devotional part.. like after we get done eating.. and you can be there for the slide show and the testimony meeting. and on Monday she told me that all of the Zones in the city where going to go to monte alban! soo i was thinking that maybe monday we can just go with them to monte alban!! hahaha and that would be fun and maybe you guys could meet some of my comps if there are here in the city.. haha  soo we had a good week we are going to have the Zone meeting this week and i think president will be coming and its gonna be a great meeting! im excited! love you guys have a rgeat Week!!! love you all! Elder Weaver 

I am sure that you are tired, you have had a very busy work and I am sure it’s a good tired, just like playing a game and giving it your all! So worth it!  6 investigators is a lot! That is so great did they love it?Uchtdorfs talk was great, it made me think of a video the missionaries used to have called man’s search for happiness, have you ever seen it?We will continue to pray for those three inparticular and fast for them this Sunday…I am so proud of you for not losing it with the catholic woman, you get further if you keep the spirit with you in all you do, someone talked about that in conference too, I just cant think of his name right now…maybe you have planted seeds with her that some day she may understand betterThat’s awesome we get to attend the devotional and that we can go to the zone to Monte Alban, so awesome how things are turning out!!!Are you in charge of zone meeting? If yes what are you going to do? How are things with comp going? Are there certain things that Lourdes doesn’t understand or want to? How old are the three of them? Did  they come to Raul baptism?
yes we are in charge of the Zone meeting!! and we are going to be talking about the baptismal invitation and about putting baptismal dates!! its gonna be good we already have some good plans for it! and me and comp are good! we have water in the water storage it finally came! and Lourdes just doesnt put out any effort waht so ever... and we cant make her.. soo maybe after there Baptisms shell change! and they did come to Rauls baptism yes
How old is Lordes?Did you see the invitation for homecoming? Look ok? And does Elder Nonu sing, would you like him too, or do you have something else in mind…we could have Levine sing I am a child of God, or something else, I guess he sings often at missionary things…..let me know what and who you’d like, trying to check things off list….Did you ask sis madsen if we will be able to take you with us Monday night, or Tuesday night? We will plan on spending Sunday with you all day and Monday and of course to see you Saturday night…I am at a loss for words today, we only have a few more times to email, seems like it has gone so slow some days and so fast others…Do you have fhe tonight or can you rest and catch up on sleep?Villanuevas excited for their daughter, she leaves next month right?
yes it looks great!!! and yes nonu can sing!! haha hes a great singer! and plays the guitar!  Lourdes is like 45.. shes Rauls mom..  umm i fogot to check on that.. but ill find out.  we are still teaching tonight.. oh and on Sunday a Guy that came to our church building came in and i saw him and i was the first to talk to him and i told him how things kind of work in church and he lives in the area of the sister of my Zone.... welp we  can just say that he is getting baptized for the white night.. and he cant wait to meet you guys.. he talks english.. and on Saturday afternoon.. he asked me if i could baptize him... because i was the first to talk with him and give him comfort.. ha thats what he said.. i wanted to cry.. ha... ya she leaves next month. today is her bday..
I will ask him to sing 😊 do you have a song in mind? Something in Spanish….So maybe because she is 45 she is pretty set in her ways, have Karla talk to her…..she could explain the happiness she feels as a mother that she can be with her child forever…I love it when you share specific experiences like the guy in church, what a blessing and testimony that you are there for a purpose! And for him to have a desire to be baptized is an answer to prayer….so great! I am so happy that he came and touched your heart as much as he touched yours, what is his name, Ill add to the long temple list 😊What and who are you teaching tonight?Tell her happy bday, maybe I will have to bring a belated bday present….Any more specific stories you can tell me about?
umm.... no one time i sang with him that song that talks about.. the color of butterfly wings... haha and we sang it in spanish and enlgish.. but just have him sing it hes a good singer! his name is Enrique! he lived a long time in the US... and i talked to him in spanish the whole time... until like 2 weeks later and the sister told me that he could speak enlgish.. haha we are teaching about Joseph smith! :) and the restoration! ummm the other day i was trying to call our food.. for the day, and we were going to eat witht he hermano isreal! and so i called the number that was in the phone and he answered but to me it ddint sound like it was his voice.. but anyways we kept talking and he didnt know that he was going to give us to eat.. but i insisted that i talked to his wife on sunday, and she told me that they were going to give us money to go eat.. haha she he called his wife and then called me back and i just could understant why his voice was different.. so i asked hermano are youfrom the ward Bosque?? and he said no.. im from Violetas.. (thats in my Zone) and so i started to laugh and told him what had happened and he laughed aswell.. and then he said welp elder while im talkin with ya i have a reference.. and she has gone to church like 3 times already.. and this past weekend she went to conference.. haha sooo it was great! soo funy!! her name is Tere! and shes a doctor.. this week we are going to teach her and see what kind of miracles happen with her! hahaha
do you think that Jax could talk with me.... haha :) like give a talk aswell??
We could certainly ask that he be the youth speaker, that’s  funny because we have teased him about it…we will ask, that would be so awesome!
thatat would beeeeee SICK..;) 

So awesome!! Love the experiences and miracles, you called the wrong number for a reason, they always say there are no coincidences in the gospel, amazing how the spirit works!!
I think that the choir sang that song in conference last session, I know Heavenly Father loves me, is that the one you want? That is one of my favorite songs, all in Spanish?
I will add Tere name to the list
Who  are you teaching tonight?
Glad that you have water figured out, still need the pipa or does it just come as it normally would?
I am sure I have asked before but the two ward you attend in the same stake? So will it be a stake white night?
Any pictures today, the gparents have commented how much they love to see them on the blog, and love how many have been coming😊

I will ask him to sing 😊 do you have a song in mind? Something in Spanish….So maybe because she is 45 she is pretty set in her ways, have Karla talk to her…..she could explain the happiness she feels as a mother that she can be with her child forever…I love it when you share specific experiences like the guy in church, what a blessing and testimony that you are there for a purpose! And for him to have a desire to be baptized is an answer to prayer….so great! I am so happy that he came and touched your heart as much as he touched yours, what is his name, Ill add to the long temple list 😊What and who are you teaching tonight?Tell her happy bday, maybe I will have to bring a belated bday present….Any more specific stories you can tell me about?

Yep we did have a tornado in little Washington terrace Utah!  Something I didn’t think Id check or even put on a bucket list-haha!
So it was last Thursday, it started blowing really bad after the guys got home from work, Jordan went to mow lawns, dad and I were home and it started to rain, clouds were dark, we soon heard the rain change direction and hit the front of the house really hard, so I went to get my fall stuff of the front porch, the rain was crazy and the wind was so fast, I called your dad to come and see, it was crazy, it was blowing in a circle in the culdesac, counterclock wise and the rain was not falling to the ground except in a few spots, it was raining sideways, then we heard hail hitting the back of the house, thought windows would break so we went to the back of the house and watched it hail, dime size hail, didn’t think for a moment a tornado, didn’t look to the sky, didn’t look anywhere but our yard, silly, when we were on the porch there wasn’t a sense of panic, the wind was swirling in the culdesac but not on our porch, almost like we were looking inside….anyways lasted really bad for about a half hour, then our power went out, we were going to burkley parkinsons wedding reception, and we started getting notices that a tornado touched down in the terrace, lots of people asking if we were ok, fortunately we were, the house was good, our drive to Kaysville was an hour long, power out everywhere, traffic lights out, trees down, leafs everywhere….well after the reception we began to hear more about the damage in the terrace, the Sewells house was a direct hit and that is the house I sent you pictures of, their house has been condemned, along with 21 other homes, it continued to rain until early Saturday morning, our power was out for about 20 hours, amazing the things we take for grantide, the guys all got up Saturday morning and went to the senior center to help where they could, lots of people showed up, funny they put the guys in charge of cleaning gutter grates and drains, kinda frustrated they did what they were asked and wanted to more, like with equipment, however that call came later that afternoon, dad and Jordan used the mini ex to clean up metal sheds that had been destroyed and loaded trailer to haul off, they also load trees and did that for a few hours, then Sunday, right after sacrament meeting our family, and a few others took the mini ex right across the street to a house that had been hit by 4 large pine trees and cleaned up branches, trees and hauled 6 loads to the dump….we feel so very blessed to have survived and that there were very minor injuries through the whole city, it also it a small part of Riverdale, picked up cars and moved them at sams club and knocked down trees too, Dad and the boys saw trailers like camp trailers that had blown across the streets and upside down…such a great blessing that we were missed, Soooo how was your week?How was the birthday dinner at villanuevas? How was your meeting with Pres Madsen at his house? Baptims this past week? You are on a roll 😊 And do you have water yet?
Can you believe it is conference time this weekend again, seems to have gone fast! And that also means that this weekend I can say you come home this month, sorry don’t want to make you trunky, but I am so excited and happy we get to see you soon!!! I am at a loss most of the time for the words to express gratitude for the blessing that you are and the blessings that we receive by having a missionary out serving the Lord! I am so very blessed to have such a great family and often feel so inadequate, but strive to be a better person because of all of you and the great examples you are!  I love to go to the singles ward sacrament with dad, I don’t get to sit with him because he is on the stand, but he looks so happy and is doing such a great job, what a great example of a hard worker and priesthood holder he is and how grateful I am that each of you have him to look up to and that you are following, and serving as our savior would….I love you justeroo, please know that we can feel of your testimony hear at home and especially on Mondays when we get to chat and hear about your experiences in the mission field! You are such a great example of serving without complaint, you serve with your whole heart and your face shows that you have the spirit with you!!! Please continue to follow the promptings of the holy ghost and be safe in your daily activity and those things you do,  Hope that you have had a very super week and a great day!
I am off to go shopping for a surprise party for Gma sheri tonight, her bday was last Friday and gpa wants to surprise her tonight with all of us there with a story to tell about her, if you have one, I will share it for you….and I am hoping you have a picture for me this week for homecoming invite, if not I will pick on from your blog 😊 I treasure you, be happy and I will chat with you soon! God bless and keep you in his hands  Love you so much, Mom xoxoxos
WOW i am honestly Shocked that that happned... haha but im sooo gld that you guys are all good!! i am doing good and Concilio was super good with president but to be honest it made me really trunky... because we started to put dates and goals for November and it was jsut a shocker it honestly hit me really hard... hahaha and dinner for my comp was really good they are a great family and we didnt have any baptisms this week... haha but we talked with the stake presidnecy to do a white night... or all of the missionaries in the Zone are going to be putting baptism dates for the 22 of ocotber and we are all going to baptize the same day.... we are hoping that as a Zone we can have around 20.... that is our goal and it would really be sweet!!! to have a lot of members there and to have around 20 bapisms!! it wold be great!! this week me and my comp went to eat and a sister gave us a ride but the sister had to pull over and pick somehting up and so she pulled over and we were on the side of the highway.... its like a road really busy like riverdale road... and while she was gone we were sitting in the car with her kid and my comp was on the side of the traffic and he had his arm out the window just resting... and all of a sudden a taxi flew by and the side mirror of the taxi hit the side mirror of the car that we were in.... and the taxi just drove off..... haha me and my comp were kind of shocked and mad and stayed in the car with the kid and when his mom got back we explained what happened and she was in shock too... the more we thought about it we knew that a miracle had happened and that my comp didnt loose his arm,....... it was crazy..  this weeek we were able to teach lazaro and Lourdes and Flor... they are having some family problems.. they are the family of Raul... last night we went over and we started to talk aout the family with thema dn we dedicated there house.. Good experience!  and we have had a busy week and this week we are going to be planning more of the White night because the Stake presidnecy is in contact with us alot and us with them... and we also have to plan a Zone Conference for next week!!  soooo im good and happy we have agua because we bought a pipa... a little truck to give us water.. ha had a good week! all happy!! 
love Elder Weaver 
Qs.. sorry the question mark doesnt work on this keyboard.. ha 
Are you guys going to rent a car because you dont need to.... the family Villanueva is going to help us out alot... they want to go to the airport to get you guys to bring you to the white night... so you for sure get to the airport at 7 or 6
i totally for got tot ask president about the devotional dinner but ill give him a call this week and let you know next week! 
Wow, you have had a great week! Full of miracles…so grateful that the taxi didn’t run into the car all together, and that it was just the mirror and that your comp was not hurt!!! Our plane is scheduled to land at 6:20, but we can rent a car so we have it for the week… That is soooo nice of the villanuevas, we certainly don’t want to impose and a white night, how great that would be to see and attend! We will have to call them and chat as it gets  a little closer…glad that you have water now, do they bring you big bottles of water or how does that all work?  Did you get a picture for invite? Haha! I will add Rauls family to temple prayer roll again this week, I will call a few temples…I am bringing a book for Prs Madsen and Villanuevas do you have other people you would like to give one too, it is a picture book of christs life in paintings…. What have you been up to today?
I talked to Armel today and he said that maddi was bit by a dog last week on the hand, the poor girl cant seem to catch a break lately, add her to your prayers 😊 At the Parkinson wedding Tiffany said that Becca would really like to date you when you get home, and they for sure will be at your homecoming, shes a cutie 😊 see things lining up already-big smiles
yes full of miracles... but honeslty mom i was over there last night with them and she asked me about things.. and she offered.. she was totally willing and we can go with them on tours and it just works out.... there really is no need to rent a car.. ha if you guys dont want to... nope that would be great for pres, and for Villanuevas.. and today i went to the secreaty to migration... haha jsut for fun,,, haha could you also put these names that ill send to the temple.. plese
Ok…that is ssoo nice of them, just didn’t know if you want to visit other members in other areas? Up to you, you know the area and who you would like to visit…. So excdited! You went to migration just for fun- was it as fun as you thought it was going to be? Do you have all your paper work in order? Is everything good for you to leave legally? Haha! Yes ill put names in the temple….
im still thinking about that... haha and how we could do it.. pres said that he could also let us barrow his car to drive out... haha soo ill check more with them.. not really not as fun... but yes im all good legally... hahaha 
Dad said he thinks our hotel has a shuttle that would take us to rent a car so maybe we could do stuff with them for a few days and then we could rent a car for a few days too, no worries we will work it all out, but be making a list of things that you want to do, and people you want to see, food you want us to eat….we can go from there, of course we will do church on Sunday, and we would like to do the temple maybe Tuesday morning, so other than that we are on your schedule 😊 soooo excited!!! Is there anything that you would still like to buy for souvenier to bring home, stuff to remember your mission?
ok sounds good!!!! i think on monday we are going to visit around and go to some places with the villanuavas and then on tuesday go to the temple and maybe go out to Etla to visit some people and some members and then Wednesday we can go and see more sights... im still thinkin... haha yes a few things... but im still thinking of what... hahaha 
On Monday will we still be with comp cause its pday?  As organized as you always are I am sure you will have it all worked out in the next few weeks…. Just an off the wall question, do you know what or where marcus is going to live when he comes home? I think his mom is in a care facility, last I heard, is he going to try and play ball as well?
im not for sure but i dont think he will be with us... i think that he should have his new comp... im not sure i havent asked.... ill ask though
Gotcha, if he is with us we can just take him with us for pday, that’s what we did with jordans comp….so why really did you go to immigration?
because the other secretary left with my comp for a sec.. and so i was stuck wit h him and just went cuz he needed to do somethings..
Hmmm, that’s good, are you doing divisions or splits again before you go home? How was meeting with pres last week, what did you chat about?
yes i think ill be doing maybe 2 splits.... with the asistants and with the DL.. 
Awesome, be safe! love you guys be safe! you guys are the best! love ya!! hasta luego! 
Love you tons and tons, have fun, breathe and enjoy, soak up the spirit! Love mom

it rained alot
Yes you are getting a lot of rain!!! I need to bring an umbrella, is it a cold rain?  Are you staying warm? Dad is still at work but I just talked to him and he says hi and he loves you tons, keep smiling and being super!!! He is very proud of you!! You have money in your account if you need anything, please use it if you need it!  So excited for you to see jax play ball, he may have earned his starting spot back, they play mountain crest this week and they have lost a lot of seniors to the new high school in cache valley so hoping we will get another win, he is loving things….he played with a J and #44 over his heart last game…it meant a lot to him and I know he is anxious for you to see him play again…the Fremont fans did a lot of damage to the stands and royal sign after the game, dumped paint everywhere and stomped in bleachers, left beer cans under the stands, pretty sad, the principles are taking care of things between the two schools and hoping that it can become a more friendly rivalary, we have beat them every year since the plain city prayer and they really thought they were going to get the win this last time, it was a good game…they showed your play several times on tv when they talked about the game on the news what are you doing tonight, have fhe?
its kind of some warm rain... i mean its cold just a tad bit... haha but its all good  thats sooooo swesome !! i cant wait to see him play!! and i cant wait to play again!! honestly haha thats funny about fremont.. we even bea them my jr year... we womped them... ha tonight we are going to be having a FHE with a Family taht we want to get baptized for the white night... well jsut the 2 little kids becausethe mom is a member.. ha 
Where are you thinking you would like to play? Weber, snow, Dixie? How great to teach siblings, are their names on the papers you sent? Is there only a mom in the house? What will you teach them? Have rings for them?
yep i got rings for them and there names are on the list and there mom is single i think she got divorsed... sadly.. but we are going to talk about how Christ made his church!! and i was thinking Weber o snow... 
Sounds awesome!  I know that things will work out for you, faith without works is dead and you are a worker full of faith so I am not worried about you and achieving your goals!How is Raul and Jose? Are they in the same ward? Do they want to serve missions?
theya re doing good and yes they are frm the same ward.. and want to go on the mission!! is fantastic!!!!!!
You sound super happy today and that makes me happy, am I reading it right? Do you have a favorite story about gma sheri I can share, or a bday thought/wish? Do villanuevas have a fb page? Haha! So how does the water truck work? You could put out rain buckets-haha! 
i actually put buckets out today.. and we called a truck that has a huge water tank and it came and jsut filled up the water.. so i think we should have agua por como una semana... and its not a story.... but i always love it when she swears..... haha noo but i also love the one time we were talking about the guy coming out of the closet in the old folks home and she asked why he was in the closet.... haha sooooo inoccent..  love her.. idk.... haha 
That’s perfect for gma, thanks, Ill send love and bday wishes! Do you email maddi or Sydney, does Braden email you? He looks like he is spending a lot of time with his little bro, I thought we might see him at a roy game, but haven’t yet, probably because the crowds are so big…I forgot to tell you that jax was at practice the day of the tornado and saw the clouds develop and Jordan was driving in it coming home from doing lawns, jace was home by then, kenzi was at work, it was blowing vents open and letting the rain inside her building, such a great blessing that all were ok….so crazy   Is all of your rain part of rainy season or hurricanes?
ya maddi told me that she got bit last week and we write and brayden writes me... haha thats sooo great taht everyone is good!! blessingSSS!!!!!!!!
