good week

Dear mom, this week was a pretty good one.. ill start from tuesday, i went out ot miahutlan on tuesday to do divisions with elder lindsay and me and him had a great time... we were teaching a final lesson and we went to give a blessing to a lady that had been shot and her husband was killed and her 6 month baby.. i didnt know her and i didnt know her situation, but Elder lindsay only has about 5 months on the mission and he didnt watnt to get the blessing and neither did the ward mission leader, so i gave the blessing.. we went into the room and she was hooked up to a machinc and had a toob in her mouth and was breathing very hard, she couldnt talk and she was super bad.. but during that blessing i felt like i got to know her very well... i gave the blessing and her whole famile of about 9 where just all quiet and didnt say anyting and i went to leave her bed after the blessing and looked back at her and she looked at me and smiled.. that touched my heart. and i grabbed her hand andtold her nice to meet you. and smiled back.  and the family was telling us thank you and they were all just sooo happy.. ha that was tuesday!
Thursday we had the zone conference and President talked to us about the culture of the mission and he is just a great guy and so is is wife, we keep on joking about the utes and byu.. ha and that day Elder Ramirez came with Elder Merrill and me on splits and we had a great day! we got back to our area t about 4 and we still had 5 lessons and 1 new..  and we got a baby jesus.. ha and we bought 60 tacos..... oh wow they were good. Elder Ramirez was a branch president, and he was also in Linda Vista, so me and him were able to talk about the area and the good times we had..
Friday he did the interview with julio and he passed!!! he ran out and ran away for about a half hour during the interview but then came back, he sid that he had to drop somthing off.. ha and then we took Elder Ramirez back to his area in xoxocotlan and the Cathlics had there free water day.. we got free water. ha and then we came back to our area and ate then went to Zimatlan and i did a baptism interview for them, she passed! super great lady!! and  then we came back and ya..
Saturday we had julios baptism, we got there at about 2 and the drain wouldnt work, so me and Elder Merrill drained the font with buckets.. took us a good hour..   and then Julio should up and his buddy danny! and he is now our new mision lider! i set him apart yesterday! and beofre the baptism started President madsen called me and said hey what time is your baptism?? and i told him at 6 and him and his wife were able to come and be at the baptism.. and he shared a little message about enduring to the end.. it was great!!!! its been a super good week, today we just rested and washed and cleaned the house, this  week ill go on divisions with Zimatlan and do another interview over there.. and Giovanni and Emmanuels parents didnt come either.. we are still seeing what we can do for them... im glad to hear you all had a good week! if jace proposes please film it.. i wanna see.... i wanna be a part of it..;)) haha love you all so much thanks so much for the prayers.. we were safe in all of our travels.. love you Elder Weaver

what a great week you have had, I love all of the spiritual experiences that you are having and so glad that you get to feel so close to the spirit, makes me want to work harder as a member missionary to feel that same spirit!
What a great blessing to have Pres come to baptism, who got to do the ordinance? Was Julio at church yesterday? do the boys still attend church? free water from the Catholics, I love it, do they say anything about your tags?  Did you take any pics of baptism or your travels? I am hoping that we will get to be there when he proposes, he is trying to get ring Friday and not sure when he will pop the question, but for sure Ill send video
how was the lady shot and husband and baby? where were they? love the Utah byu banter....we will have to bring him a Utah hat :)
you got a baby Jesus? that needs explanations :) Did Ramirez know anything about Pedro? was that the same place?

haha the president fromt he branch baptized him,  and yes he was in church and th boys still attend church but we take them every week..  they were just in miahuatlan and someithng happend and ya... shes been shot..  and the baby jesus.. is froma  recent convert we started to explain to her that she can have like a litte mini temple in her house but she has to get rid of her badby jesus.. its somthing that she worshipped beeofre.. and she gave it to us.. and hwe are going to brake it and burn it.. ;)
you need to wear red tie when around pres :)
i know right....


that is elder ramirez our companionship ties..PSYCH, and Julio on baptism day :)

send a picture of baby jesus :) hope that the lady makes a full recovery, will she be out for funerals? It is so fun to read your Spanglish, your language is truly there, I hope you will be able to speak to us on Mothers day, Jordan may have to translate :)
Jordan bought an aerator last weekend and did our yard today, yea, so excited for spring-how has your weather been? hope you get your package this week, will the office let you know when it is there?
are you having fhe tonight?
were your tacos street tacos, 60 is a lot, however I know that they are kinda small....sounds like you are eating better, are you feeling good and sleeping good? how is our rock throwing missionary doing?

ill take one.. but walkng back home we had it in a black bag and i "accidently" hit it against a pole and the head broke.. but ill take a pic. no fhe.. we are going to help the presidnt of th branch with some englsih hw.. and we are hopefully ggoing to find  great new!! today! the weather has been good rained alittle bit.. and it felt soo good! we are doing good and the rock throwing missinary is doing good!! hahaha

the ties are awesome!!! love it!! are you wearing your new pants, they look good! your definitely a very handsome missionary!!! did Merrill watch psych? I love you Justin!! love that smile, you sound very happy!!

ya he watched PSYCH.. almost as much as me nd jax.. maybe a little more..

that's ok if you cant get picture, do a lot of people worship the baby Jesus? We will pray that you find a great new investigator tonight!!! what is the hardest thing for people to believe about our church, or the hardest thing to teach?

ya... theres actaully a day in feburary when they go to church with there baby jesuss... hahah that was a funny sight..;) i think its very hard for people to accept that the church was started in the united stares.. but then we have to give thema  history class about religous freedom.. ha

I know you mean restored in the US :) they have so many ruins that could correlate with the bofm and the people, I would think it would be like a history lesson for them-no? get to go to the temple again soon? Do they start Easter celebrations or I should say, crucifixion stuff soon because of Easter?

YES.. haha my bad.. im not sure but i imagine that yes they will start doing cucifixions.. they have hard time becsue they wanna go to Zerahemla and they dont believe it exists, and that there werent horses or coins here in the americas.. thats something hard forthem

I love that you have had the blessing of Elder Merrill, he will probably be a friend for life :) brother from another mother, which reminds me I need to email his mom :) I friended her on your fb, so I will put up some pix of you two together and tag him :)
Remember that gma and gpa put $20 in account for easter, be sure to get what you need, I check every now and then and you have the money there to use :) how is the apartment?

ok thanks:) haha its good... still has 2 rooms and 1 batheroom...;)

hahahhahaha!! I figured as much, everything working? need to buy a toaster, or blender? do you have to iron very often? do you live by members? is it quiet at night?

yes everything working and good! we have a blender.. and a iron dont live by members.. or neighbors get drunk alot but they are cool with us gringos.. ha

hmmm, things that we take for granted growing up in the gospel, how grateful I am that we had that opportunity, for whatever reason, or what we did in the pre-existence to earn that great very blessed!!
So dad and I are cruising again...we leave on the 19th and back on the 26th, we are flying to Orlando and cruising to Cozumel and Belize, Hondoras, and Costa Maya Mexico, we are excited to see new places and try new kinda in your part of the world just the other side of Mexico....but soon we will be with you :)

HOLY COW!! another cruz???? for your bday??  have fun!and be safe..;) ha  thats gonna be way fun!! tell jax hes gotta keep his grades up to play college ball.. what is he doing in track???

So glad, do you still feel safe in this area? how about the other areas you travel too? are the other areas also made up of branches, do they have very big meeting houses? another thing we take for granted :)
I told you we had stake conference yesterday and they announced that the attendance that day was 22%, which is so sad to me when we only have to travel less than a few miles and people that have a greater distance make so much more of a sacrifice to attend their meetings...glad the apartment is great!

ya i feel safe here and in other areas..  they also have branches.. how is President Wade doing???
i interviewed the lady in white on friday.. she is now a member and he youngest daughter her name is Leticia, shes great. and thats Elder Silva.. hes a great Elder

They always look so beautiful in white, what a great thing you get to do right now, and I say you get to do because you don't have too, but choose to! Do you have a ponderize this week?

ya its pretty fun.. the spirit is diffreent but way strong in interviews..  i dont.. do you???

yes we will be gone for my bday...Jax is running sprints, Shultz asked him if he wanted to try and throw Jav, he said maybe next year, he really wants to focus on getting his 40 time better and be faster, he is hoping to run the ball this year for varsity as well as play defense....he is girl struck right now and the freedom of a car and social life is appealing, especially since he doesn't have friends around he left at 7:00, had track after school, lifts, then he has a rec basketball game in roy at 5:30, then he wants to stay for the faculty talent show, and he will have some homework for math, it is an easy day for him tomorrow, but he needs to focus, but you know, its hard when your so involved!

haha thats true.... sorry.... ha hes super busy... and hows jordan and this girl?

has Jordan written you about her? do you remember W Parker, she is your age, they have been out a few times and he has kissed her already, that is a big step, they seem really cute together and she is very nice, she is a self motivated person which is great!  I know it would be fast but would love for him to get married, maybe not as fast as Jace, a couple of months after you are home, :)

ya for sure a couple months after i get home... hahaha that would be great!! shes a great girl and ive been praying super hard for jordan and i think and ponder about how i could help him.. ha
