Just Stayin Fresh

This week has been very interesting. I had a couple anxiety attacks, which happened to be the first couple i have ever had.... but my companion gave me a blessing that i asked for and i am doing a lot better and i feel a little less stressed out. Dont ask me when I have had anxiety because i dont really know! ALL IS WELL:) We had a conference with Elder Ochoa of the 70 on friday. It was super cool, and a lot more personally than the one with Elder Cook because it was just a couple zones of missionaries in the mission on Friday. We talked a lot about the faith we need to repent. He basically ripped our faces off when it comes to repentance and faith, and it was amazing. One thing that i loved that he said was.... "WHO DO YOU OBEY?" it is a question we can ask our investigators when they dont want to do something like get married. "Who do you obey when you decide to remain together, but not get married?"

Eswin is doing great. He is a super strong convert, and is loving the church. His favorite thing ever is institute. Even though he is too old to get credit, he goes as a listener, and participates. We are now working with his family, but they are definitely not as acceptive as he is.

We are working hard with Ricardo. He knows the church is true. I dont know exactly why he doesnt want to get married, he is just scared. We are being a lot more firm and direct in the lessons with him, and we are working towards the 1st of March still.

We have been finding some cool families, and have some investigatores that have been going to church for the last couple weeks. Daniel, who is dating a member. Also Selena, who is good friends with a youth in the ward. Please pray for them, because they both want to be baptized, just arent commiting completly to what we are teaching them!

Thanks for all the prayers. Elder Morillo and I will be remaining as comps for the next 6 weeks. We get along really well, and work well together. Pray for us. We need that extra boost:)

Love you all so much. Oh and quick update.
My first convert Hermano Salvador is now officially living in El Salvador. And one of his grandsons got baptized a couple of months ago. I forgot to tell you all.

Also the 18 yr-old investigator in Monjas, EDUARDO. He got baptized on friday with Elder White and his companion Elder Castro. So if you want to see pictures of the baptism, stalk Elder Whites blog. He doesnt know that I know. It was supposed to be a secret until he sends me a photo, BUT i have sources:)

Love you all. Mom and Dad stay safe on the cruise, and if you want to buy fruit while you are in Honduras or Belice, make wise choices.

Love you all so much!!! Take care, and thank you for the prayers and support.

Elder Nathan Russell Walton
