Delta Area

I am doing terrific. I HAVE ELDER LOPEZ MAYTA as my companion. We serve in the Delta Bilingual area . He is 22 and is a amazing missionary from Bolivia and he lived there for 15 years and got the papers to come to the USA and has lived in New Hampshire for the last 7 years. I love Delta. We get feed like crazy but I am going to try to control myself.  We had two baptisms this last week and I cried.They were so full of the spirit. I love them so much. We got to teach a man that has been investigating the church for over ten years. He had a lot of missionaries come before us and had a bad experience with them. A set of missionaries I do not know who tried to force him to get baptized and he was not for that at all. We got a call from a stake presidency member and he said I got someone for you to visit he said he wanted to get baptized on his birthday but then he thought about it and said he better get it done sooner so November 17th is the day. We taught him in the two weeks and baptized him and he is 87 years old. I got to assist in baptizing him and it was so special and great experience for all. And the other one was a 16 year old boy that goes to a correctional program called the white river academy and he was super ready and studies Preach My Gospel everyday. he is so grateful for a lot of things. I am grateful for a loving and supportive support system. I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Atonement. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve a mission and to be healthy. I am grateful for my companion and the example he is for me. I am grateful to be 20 soon even though I do not feel older and in the words of Kathy being an" old guy" I am grateful for the scriptures and a living day prophet. I love you all .
