Really this last week was really so crazy...

February 28, 2011

Wow what the heck! Bailey looks so much different. It’s kinda of creepin me out. lol Jordan looks so weird with the facial hair and it looks like he has lost some weight. I can’t believe that he will be going home in a little bit more than a month. It seems like yesterday you wrote me telling me that he was getting ready to go. Taylor is looking so much like a missionary: Man I am just so proud of that guy! lol so much has changed. Tell Janae that I say congrats with the BYU Idaho thing- that’s pretty sick. Also I can’t believe that Taylor is taking off in just two days that is so crazy! He is going to be a great missionary. ok so mom you told me that its cool if I get one of the scripture cases. So I sent it to get made but I have to pick it up this next Monday, and I am going to need money to pay for it. I checked my card and it says that I have 30 bucks so I need 30 more. It’s going to cost me 54 bucks. Next Monday I’m going to take the money out so can you put it on by next Monday? In the morning on Monday I’ll check my mail just to be sure if you put it on. So could you send me a message telling me if it’s ok. I would really appreciate that thanks mom. Oh the other thing is I don’t know if it’s the 9 of July or August but I’ll call to find out. I really hope it’s not on the 9 of July. That’s too soon. lol I am having way too much fun out here to go home to early lol. ok so I gotta tell you about this week. Really this last week was really so crazy and it went by oh so fast. On Saturday we had 4 more baptisms which was really such a cool and rewarding experience. We had worked so hard to get these people ready and when they actually got baptized it was so cool and such a relief. lol I love baptisms but they are a lot of work, a lot of stress, but the cool thing is that my companion had the opportunity of baptizing his two first baptisms. It was his first time ever and he was stoked. I baptized the other two and I was honored and pumped also. lol We baptized the family Rua which is that family of 5 that we found but only 3 were at the baptizing age and also this girl we have been teaching named Karalayn. You know what the best part was is that on Sunday when they were all being confirmed members and receiving the Holy Ghost Elder Maldenado was there who is a member of the 70. He gave the last talk in the first hour of church and addressed those that had gotten baptized and they really enjoyed it. Really the leaders of the church are such amazing people. You can really just see and feel the love that they have for the church and for this work. They are truly amazing people. They are so loving and caring that it really is hard to miss. lol over all it was a great end of the weekend and I was tired out of my mind. But after this p-day I am ready to go again. lol ok so I want to send pics to you all but this computer doesn’t let me so am going to go to another, but I just want you all to know that I love you all very much and I am so grateful for everything you do for me. oh hey we are going to have another baptism this week on Sat at 7 if you could can you pray for the Hermana Jasmin. She really is an amazing woman and I am sure she will be fine but prayer works. Anyway I love you all and miss you all a lot. no pics of me and Cody because they didn’t let Cody out of his sector this week. Hoping next week anywho it’s about that time. Love you all!

The church is true and I am so happy to be a missionary!!

February 21, 2011

ok so today I am in a place where I will be able to send pics, so I am going to do that right now so that you guys can see what’s been going on in my life!! lol some crazy things that’s for sure!! ok so on Saturday some sister missionaries had a baptism of a family of 4 and the parents of the fam asked me if I could do baptism then. It was truly an honor! I am not too sure why they chose me, but I was down with it. lol the only reason I think they chose me was because one day I went to go meet them and motivate them for their baptism. But it turned out to be a really great baptism service. The other is of me and my comp at the beginning of this change with our first baptism. ok the other pic is of me holding my trunky papers lol!!! YUP my TRUNKY PAPERS!! lol I can’t believe it but I received them this week. I now know when I will be leaving or when is my return date is. So I am supposed to go home according to the papers they sent me lol the 9 OF JULY!!! lol but I am pretty sure they messed up and I will be returning on the 9 of August. oh and I also received the package that you sent me mom thanks. ok I am going to write a little bit later today. ok so I’ll ttyl. Lots of love!!!

Hey fam!!!

How are you all?? Well I hope you are all just as good as I am or better!! Well life here in the praire is just going swell. lol la pradera get it? lol that was a good one. ok so well I still haven’t gotten a letter from you all today but it’s cool because I got two letters from you all this last week, which made me super feliz!!! lol ok so I gotta say I got a kick out of the letter that talked about the girls that were tee-ping the house and left a letter for Julia and then the next time Jordan and Taylor showed up just in time. I was reading that and I couldn’t help but to imagine the look on the girl’s faces as Jordan called them out. lol that was so funny. oh and mom thanks for the letter and package it was nice to get one from the fam and hear how things are going there. Wow so Whitney is going to have a baby that is so insane. No joke that just blows me away. lol ok so what can I write and tell you all about that would be interesting for you all? Hey so this week we are going to have one baptism for sure. Maybe we will have more but we need to go and see how some of our investigators are doing. We also found here Jasmyn that lady I was telling you all about last week. Well she didn’t go to church this last week so she will be getting baptized the next week for sure. But ya we are way excited for the two baptism and hopefully more. We have a lot of people in our program right now. Yesterday we had 6 people in Sacrament Meeting, which is pretty good. This week a girl named Karalayn that is 15 years old will be getting baptized, so if you could I would appreciate it if you could pray for her! hhhmm que mas??? You know what is weird? Having so many gringo comps and even more weird is gringos that have a hard time speaking because they are new, so we speak so much English. lol we need to talk more Spanish, but it’s hard because it’s just so much easier talking in English. oh ok so me and Cody planned a sight-seeing trip and a picture taking trip the next Monday so we will be taking a lot more pics together the next week like you guys want. So I am pretty stoked about that. lol Ok so mom today I went to the mall and found that guy who makes the covers and I picked out the best pics that I liked or the best drawings and now he is making me a scripture case. It’s going to be soo sick! I can’t wait to show you when I get back lol you will just have to wait to see it. lol and so will I because he will finish in two weeks!! but ya it’s going to be sick. ok man to tell you the truth I don’t know what else to write about. lol not much has passed in this last few days. Really time is going by so fast. I can’t believe I already got my travel papers. I wrote in the papers that I will be going straight to the Chico airport and it will be on the 9 of August. oh another thing and this is one is for dad. Dad, I think that I am getting bigger!! I have been eating like a mad man and doing so many exercises and I really think I am getting a little bigger. My plan is come home bigger or about the same as I was when I left and I think I’ll be able to do that. We are up every morning at 6:15 doing our exercises and we do them until 7:00. Just give me a few more months and I’ll be looking like Chuck Norris at his finest. lol that was the first name that came to my mind. lol so how is Jordan doing in Mexico? He almost has 2 months there already ya? That’s so crazy!! How is Tyler doing?? What’s he up to?? It is crazy to see pics of the fam because everyone looks so much older that it kinda freaks me out a little bit. lol but ya I hope that you are all good and enjoying the winter season. oh other thing is I think it would be cool to live in the house of Riggle when I get back but I don’t know, maybe that could change. I still don’t know what I want to do with my life and I am just glad that is still a half a year away! Well I think I’ll be finishing up because I don’t have anything else to write but I want you all to know that I love you all and miss you a whole lot. The church is true and I am so happy to be a missionary!! With lots of love,

Love, Elder Keables xoxoxoxoxo lol

the other pic is of me holding my trunky papers lol!!! YUP my TRUNKY PAPERS!!

I am stoked to have 6 months more to work like crazy!

Hi everyone!

Hey Happy Valentine’s Day! Wow that’s so weird to say lol. It really doesn’t feel like it’s Valentine’s Day except for all the people selling hearts and bears and all that good stuff in the street. lol it’s probably a good thing that it doesn’t feel like it though. lol That’s so crazy that Dad and Ryan went on a snow trip. I can’t even imagine what that would be like. The only time I ever feel cold is when I sit in front of a air conditioning. Sleeping in a snow cave, that sounds like it would be so cold that I would straight up die. lol I can’t believe that Janae is going to be 19 years old and that Melissa is going to be 15. When I see pics of them you can really see that they are starting to grow up and its freaking me out. ok mom so before I forget I was going to ask you about the scriptures case again. So I talked to the guy about making one for my English quad and he said that it would cost about 55 bucks to get it done. What do you think? Is it ok if I go ahead and get on made for me? ok ya moving on. So how is Jordan doing? He looks like he is really enjoying his experience there in Mexico. Those pics are way cool and please just keep on sending them because I love to see pics of the fam. ok so I gotta tell you about how things are going here for us with me and Elder Smith. ok so right now we have 4 people with dates for baptisms. ok so really I feel like the Lord has blessed us so much in this last week. One day we were contacting and we knocked on this door and this lady answered the door. Before I could tell her who we were she was opening the door and letting us in. She told us that two days back she and her fam had just moved in, actually on Sunday to be exact. On Wed. we found her. She said that on Tuesday she had been praying to know what she should do or what path she should take. She prayed to ask God to send her a sign. The next day we showed up at her door and she was almost crying for joy. She went to church, loved it and also is really excited to be baptized on the 26 of this month. Also we contacted this fam in the park and on Sat we taught them for the first time, and on Sunday they went to church. Sunday night we visited them and put a date for the 26 also. It’s a family of 5 and three of them can be baptized. It’s a younger couple that have three kids. They are way cool and they so want to get baptized. If you want to know what the dad of the fam looks like just look up Nelly the singer. lol because that’s what he looks like. lol be we are way excited and really feel the Lord has blessed us so much. We also have a lot more people that we are teaching. Really I love this sector, and I am stoked to have 6 months more to work like crazy! Anyway I gotta get going, but I’ll be writing the next week. I hope everything is going great for you all and I hope you all have a really great week. Love you all and miss you all.

Love, Elder Keables
