So my new area is cool! we're just a small branch up here cause a lot of the people who live here are transient and only stay for ski season and stuff, but it's a great little branch! The people are awesome and willing to help out! My new companion, Elder Quezada, is awesome! He's native to spanish and taught english before his mission, so I'm in luck! He's from Oxnard Shores Cali, but also sorta from Chile! He's old too hahaha he's 2 years older than me....geezer haha ANyways SPANISH! It's coming haha I still am lost in all the lessons and stuff but I can pray carryon a converstation kind of. It's so much fun haha WE teach this awesome family that owns a restaraunt in Fraser and they speak spanishand they're just super cool. They give us food all the time! I can't wait til I can teach and communicate well in spanish! Quiero aprender ahora, pero necessito tiempo! ANyways the teaching has been going pretty well! We've been finding new people to teach like crazy and we have a couple who are progressing really well! ONe guy in particular. His name is Ken and his whole family are members of the church. He's been "investigating" the church for a long time now. Missionaries have deemed him an etern-a-gator because he's never really progressed, but we had an intense lesson with him and his family yesterday and he said he wants to get baptized! Probably this coming sunday! WE're excited because this guy is pretty much a member, he just needed a bit of a push! We also taught another awesome part member family! They want to get baptized the only problem is the parents need to get married!!! WE had a crazy lesson with them about eternal families and the blessings that come with the temple! WE were pretty much invinting them to get married...the things we do as missionaries! They seem like they're going to start progressing really fast! But anyways it was a good end to the week. Hopefully we can keep things rolling!!!!! Love you all!! Elder Austin!
