Whats up FAM!!!!
Lol ok those are some pretty cool pics! Tyler looks like a straight up G!! I didn’t know that he could even grow a beard. lol jk but really it's so weird to see Tyler with that. Ryan also is looking like he has grown! lol time is going by so fast. I can’t believe that only 6 more weeks and Cody’s in the mish. Also I can’t believe that there are so many missionaries that are going out. Man I am getting old even Toni Mohr is going on the mish? Really some of the things in today’s letter caught me by surprise. Hey mom I haven’t got a letter from you or from anyone for 1 month now. I know that you said you are sending them but, someone is holding back on me or playing a game. lol No it’s cool I’m sure that this Wednesday there are going to be some. But really I haven’t gotten one for a month. That’s sick that Jake is the secretary, right now I live with one of the old secretaries, Elder Thayne. He was secretary for 9 months before he had a change and now he is with us. oh mom it would be sick to take a trip as a family here but at he same time I am sure it would be so dangerous. I heard today that a lot of the gringos that are here have been kidnapped and held for ransom lol. It’s not the safest place to be as a tourist. but it would be way cool because after about a year here I know Guayaquil pretty good. lol man it’s going to be so cool to have Cody here! I am just counting down the days, and to tell you the truth they are going so fast. Before you know it me and Cody are going to be comps walking up and down the streets in downtown Guayaquil. lol its going to be cool. I saw the friend of Kyle W. today and we started talking about Cody and how sick it’s going to be. lol so Jordan leaves tomorrow for school. I am sure that he is excited for that. Hey does he have a wife yet lol or a girlfriend? Do you think he is going to wait for me so I can be at his wedding? lol how are Julia and Janae doing with school at Butte. You should tell them to stop by the gym sometime and talk with the coach. lol that’s so weird that they are both going to Butte and that school already started. Really it’s crazy because tomorrow is the last day in August and on to a new month. Wow!
ok so I just put some pics on to send to you guys. These are pics of Hno Sanchez baptism. On sat the 28 we had the baptism service and on Sunday the 29 he received the Holy Ghost. The baptism was really an amazing experience. Because he couldn’t walk, I had to pick him up and carry him into the font. We only filled the font about halfway up with water so that we could just do it sitting down. Before we put him in the water we had to boil water to put in the cold water so he wouldn’t get sick. It took a lot of time to get everything ready for the baptism but the good thing is that it all went really well. When we got him in the water he got really scared and started to cry because he thought I was going to drowned him so my comp had to help out. Lucky one of his sons was there and started talking to him to calm him down enough to do the baptism. It was amazing because he completely stopped crying and we were able to do the baptism. When he came out of the water he got scared again and started to cry but soon after realized that everything was over and was happy as could be. After the baptism he didn’t want us to leave his side .lol He is the happiest little man! The coolest thing is that he totally reminds me of the guy off x-men. lol The guy in the wheelchair. lol Just playing, but really. It was really a great baptism and it was so cool to see one of the sons there that was so happy. He came up to us and thanked us for everything! It was really a rewarding feeling and an experience that I will always remember.
The other pic is what I had for dinner last night and I thought Cody would like to see what we eat here! lol there are a lot more crazier stuff than that. I can’t wait to get back home and make a way good dinner for the fam! Don’t worry mom I’ll cook that night. Also, I was thinking about it and I miss In and Out Burger!! lol Can’t wait! Only one more year!! lol jk. Anyway I think I’m going to wrap this week’s letter up by just telling you all that I love you and miss you a tons. Thanks for everything you all do for me! I have the best family in the world and I know it! I know that the church is true! Love you all!! Les amo, les quiero, les extraño!
Con Amor,
Elder Keables
