#31: Staying In Guerrero

It's good to hear that you (mom) had a good birthday.  I thought of you all day Saturday!  I'm glad you've had a good time with Grammy! :)

The attendance this week at church wasn't exactly 50 because there were a lot of people who were sick... so we had only 35 people there.

Today is the start of a new transfer cycle and my comp and I don't have changes (transfers) which will probably mean that I'll end up "killing off" Elder Castro since he only 6 weeks left of his mission.  (To "kill" someone off means that their last companion in the mission will be the one that
will be sending that missionary home-it's missionary lingo)  We have a meta (goal) of having 5 baptisms in the month of February-Wow!  It's already FEBRUARY! haha  I just passed my 200th day in the mission about a week ago!  Oh, and I teach an English class and my companion and I teach seminary once a week!

I heard that the US is getting a lot of snow and weather lately, and that the eastern states are getting hammered!! Thanks for the scripture for the week.  I try and memorize it in Spanish!
Le amo,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture to "Ponderize":
1 Nephi 7:12

12 Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord is able to do all things according to his will, for the children of men, if it so be that they exercise faith in him? Wherefore, let us be faithful to him.

at the CCM, Blue is with his first companion,
and red is with his currant companion.

(After getting an email from our missionary-later that day when
the mail was checked, there was a handwritten letter to each family
member-I recognized Elder Fowler's handwriting just by the capital
"E" in the upper left hand corner! This is PRICELESS!! We will be sure
and let him know that after almost 2 months, we received his letters!)
