Hello guys so it was another average week. Not as bad as last week but i have had it up to here with our investigators!! Haha J/K.  We were able to have 2 people come to Sacrament Meeting yesterday and it was good but we were hoping to have many more!! I guess that will just be motive for us to work harder this week!!

We had a super cool experience this week. We went to the house of one of the investigators in the morning on Friday but she wasnt home so later that day or evening  we tried again and she still wasnt there.  As we were leaving her house i had to go pee really bad and so we went inside an abandoned house and as we were walking out we saw the sister and she told us to come to her house!! We began talking to her and she told us that she had been doubting the church and had been praying for an answer to know if it was true.  She had received a call from somebody and had felt that the church was true and then when we passed or when she saw us she felt that that was her confirmation of the answer she had received.  Her along with her two kids went to church yesterday for the first time in like 3 months so yeah it was just really cool!!

I also heard that my broncs are headed to the super bowl again so yeah im pumped and you better believe that im praying for them haha jk!!! I also wanna give a shout out to big Kob for the alley oop that i missed which apparently was like super legendary haha!! That sucks that you guys have been sick for the last couple days and i hope that you are feeling better!! This next week is gonna be crazy cuz its Mellados last week and then we have changes and i will get a new comp and yeah just a lot of stuff!!

Thank you for helping me with all of the college stuff cuz literally i would be done for with out you guys!! All is well here in Juaritos and here are a few pics!! I love you guys and hope you have a great week!! Deuces!!

Hello Brethren and Sisters,

It has been quite a rough week and i feel as if it was just a big waste of time haha jk!! But it was rather tough!! Because for the first time in a super long time we didnt have anybody in Sacrament Meeting!! However the good news is that the Hno. Carvallo has returned from Veracruz so we are gonna go see him tonight and set an appt and just hope that things go good!!

I have yet to receive your packages but was still able to celebrate this week haha!! A family here from the ward bought a spongebob cake to celebrate my late birthday and also some members from my old ward in La Cuesta called me and we went out to eat with them and they gave me some pretty awesome presents!! I will send pics!!

Sounds like life back home is going pretty solid!! Oh but we are going to have a meeting this week so i will probably get your packages which will be cool!! Im really sorry this week was a rather boring one and there is not a whole lot to talk about!! Well our convert that we had here in Parajes got called to be the Secretary of the Young Mens Quourum so that was pretty awesome!! We are continuing to work and just trying to do our best but holy Shnaz it is really hard lately and im getting a little lazy, i need to step it up haha!! Hopefully all is going well back home and just know that i love you all!! Have a wonderful week and as usual Keep it Real!!

Hey guys!!

So it was a decent week!! I turned 20 so that was prettty cool!! Oh and also bought well actually my companion bought me the coolest sweater of all time!! So we did some modeling pics haha!! Also yesterday after church we went with some of our investigators who made me a cake and gave me a new watch which is super awesome and super huge and super cholo haha!!

The work is all right.  We still have a baptismal date pending with a lady and her son and then another lady.  They both struggle with the Word of Wisdom but they are making a ton of progress so we are happy!! I still have yet to receive any packages but will probs get them the 20th of Jan because we have a Mission meeting that day and will give us the packages then!! We had a really cool lesson with an investigator this week where we gave her a blessing to be able to stop smoking and afterwards she said she had felt a warm feeling and she hasnt smoked since then and it was really awesome!! I also gave a talk yesterday in church and idk but i actually think i like giving talks in church...........hahaha jk!! Do not use that against me when i get back to give talks in church Bishop Taysom!!

We cant get on Facebook anymore so i couldnt see your bday wish but thank you for the wish and thanks to all for the bday wishes!! Its so weird being 20 haha...not really i feel the same but just the thought of being 20 makes me feel old and wrinkly but its whatevs haha!! Sounds like things are going well back home!! I love you guys and things are all right aqui!! Have a wonderful week and always look for the good in people!! Every day is a new beginning and there is no need to focus on the past because you cant change it!! Focus on the present and the future and being better. Besos!!

Hey Guys!!

So this was another solid week and to start off Happy New Years!! Holy Helen Keller it is 2016 and i cant believe it!! Thankfully this week we had no snow but it has been melting and the temperatures have been freezing!! We spent new years just chilling and working but we did go to a cool restaurant called The Malas Companias and it was really good!! We also lit off some fireworks with a family and these fireworks are freaking awesome like Gunshot awesome!! Because when you light them you throw them and they explode and it sounds like a gunshot and its awesome!! We have a Zone Leader Meeting this week so i will more than likely get to pick up the packages this upcoming Thursday and Friday if you send them!!

As far as the work goes we are doing really good and plan to put 2 fechas this week!! The Hno. Carvallo should be returning this week from Veracruz and we have another lady named Graciela who we plan to put a fecha with this week so we are pretty pumped!! Im really liking the area and i cant believe how fast the time is going!!

Im super pumped to go to SUU and just really happy with everything that is going on right now!! Interviews with Pres Derbez went really good this week and im excited for these last 6 months!! Thanks for the B day wishes. I cant believe that im gonna be 20 years old like holy crap what happened??? haha!! I hope everything back home is well and i know that Jesus is the Christ our Savior and our Redeemer. I know that God loves us and that the promise in D$C 82:10 is true!! I hope that you have all been able to put New Years goals and hope that you can complete them!! Especially those who started going to the gym..dont give up after 2 weeks cuz that was me hahah!! Never Give up and always be happy!! Sea Mormon! Sea Feliz!!

Love Elder Imlay

P.S. Here is a pic of Elder Cox benching my companion it was legendary haha!!
