Hello People

Sso this was quite an awesome week!! Well and also super eventful. The awesome news is that Pili and her Son were baptized yesterday and it was awesome!! Everything went super well!! A ton of people showed up for the bap and it was just a really nice Spiritual experience and also super cool cuz Elder Orton is headed out today and gets to leave on a bang hahah!!

But yes that leads to the next matter of business i guess!! So as for transfers i will be staying here in Laguna and yes with another American well actually Elder Isbell is just coming from Laguna 1 over here to Laguna 2 because they are shutting down the Area for this cycle cuz we just lost a bunch of Elders and Sisters  and will be reopening the area next cycle.  Its gonna be freaking rough though because our area just went from huge to grandísimo! Like literally our area is probs the biggest area in the whole mission and we are two of the skinniest people in the whole mission so yeah pray that our legs dont fall off or that we dont die from losing to much weight haha! Jk Its totally good and im really excited for the future!! However i did realize that pres never likes to change me like seriously after this transfer i will be 15 months in 2 areas but ehhh its awesome.  I kind of like it cuz i really get to know the people and truly find how to help them in there life!!

But anyways on a worldly note can someone please tell me if Utah won this week or not!! I might be on a mish but i can still be a fan hahah!! Anyways to wrap up i learned this week that perserverance is key to everything in life!! Nothing comes cheap in this life but when you give it all you got, holding nothing back the rewards are amazing!! I love you all and thank you for your much support!! Shout out to Elder Taysom for his last week in the Mish!! Dont Die Bro!!

Love you all again!!  Stay Fly!
Love Elder Imlay

Buenas Tardes!!

Ok so it was a really rough week and pretty much everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong!! Sadly Jesus did not get baptized because he was not able to get a hold of his dad and get consent to be baptized!! It really sucked to be blunt and got me pretty pissed off but after the week ended and then reflecting back on everything that happened i realize that it probs happened for a reason. So we are gonna just keep working and see what happens!!

We also had a somewhat rough week with Pili cuz she didn´t go to church but she actually had a really good reason for not going!! On Saturday her nephew got hit by a car and was in the hospital in critical condition so she went on saturday night to be with him and his parents and just help them out. But yeah so we went with her and talked to her about how she felt and she said she still wants to get baptized and so we decided that she will be getting baptized this upcoming sunday after church because it is Elder Orton´s last one and she wanted to do it when we could both be here!! So kind of rough but in the end all is going to work out ok!! We have been struggling to find new people but are hoping that this week we can just find more and help more, It has been a __________ of a time here in Laguna with a lot of ups and downs but we had a meeting this week with pres that was super inspiring and i think that it is really going to help us progress here!!

Anyways im not gonna lie...Corbins tattoo is pretty awesome and yeah actually thats all i have to say! Im really hoping that pres will let me go to Juarez to see Preston one last time before he bounces out but its all good whatever happens!! Thanks for all you guys do and all the support!! Its a huge help out here and i just want you to know that i love you tons and think about you always!! Keep it Real!!


So this week was Mexico Independence day and we'll just say we tried celebrating it the best we could for being four white crackers! hahah!!

Pues esta semana was kind of crazy, stressful and awesome all at the same time! So we had a pretty normal week as far as lessons go and people we are teaching and stuff like that! We were able to eat with Jesus´s mom yesterday and she seems pretty chill.  We weren´t able to talk to her about the baptism but tomorrow me and Elder Orton are gonna go talk to her so wish us luck hahah!!

We also had a pretty cool experience this morning! We were washing our clothes in the house of a member and she told us that she had been talking with our investigator Pili at the gym this morning and she was telling us about how Pili was talking about her baptism on the 26 of September and everything and it was just a nice reassurance to know that it is truly something she desires to do and not just because we are telling her to do it!!

On a different note i do have one question!! WHY in the heck was Kaler dressed up as a girl??? Anyways so i will probs be getting your package today which i am pumped for!! I was also pleased to hear that Utah is ranked , sick but yeah!! Oh sunday was actually super cool too because we had the Mexico City Temple rededication! It was awesome because Elder Holland was like throwing in some gringo spanish hahah!! He started his talk speaking a little spanish and then taught his message in english and then ended in spanish!! It really was a super amazing talk and an all around cool experience!!

Oh also one more thing and i know you are gonna hate me for this mom but i forgot my camera at the house today so super sorry but you gonna have to wait til next week for some pics!! Anyways thats all ive got for today!! I think this is the longest letter ive written so far so yeah but not important!! I love you guys and hope yáll have a great week!!

Ok so it was a really rough week because no one went to church which was a total downer so we will have to see what happens with a couple of our investigators.  Also we are a little nervous because our super chido investigator Jesus might not be able to get baptized because his mom may not let him!! We went with him yesterday and had quite an emotional lesson but in the end we all decided that next sunday we are going to talk to his mom and we are all just praying that her heart will be softened!! We are nervous but excited all at the same time!! It has been freaking hard here in Laguna and we are just hoping that by the end of this cycle we can have just a little success!!

Other than that it was actually a pretty solid week! I didnt step in any holes (Thank goodness)) Also like i said last week, we got to go to Colonia Juarez and it was freaking sweet!! The Deep Sea fishing looks super sick like seriously thats totally something i wana do when i get back!! Ok but seriously i am not that underweight.  I have stayed the exact same size since i got here, the mission is just freaking out and wants to make sure we are all good!! But yeah so i dont have a bunch to say today i am trying to send pictures but we will see if the computer lets me!! I Love all of you guys and am so grateful for all of the support and prayers my way!! Have an amazing week!!
