Elder Matthew Whittle--Nov 8, 201

Hola Madre!

We bought some traps already for the cockroaches so I think we'll be ok, and we're trying to put baking soda down in the cupboards too. I haven't received the package yet, but thanks for sending one! So guess who I saw today?....... Nona! I got to see her in the Temple. It was so good to see her. She has the sweetest spirit. I got to talk to her for about ten minutes or so, and then had to leave, but I'm sure I'll see her the next time we go.
It would be neat if you could send three of the mini preach my gospels en espanol para nosotros. The elders in my district want to have one. Thanks mom. I hope you're doing ok with dad being gone. Be safe. How are things going? Anything new? Did you finish the basement yet;) or did dad build a shop out back haha. Just kidding.
We have been having so many miracles again this week. The girl that we've been teaching, Luz, She found a new place to live, and things are going a little better now we hope. We we're walking through pazole three nights ago and we handed a pass along card to a lady on the phone, and left it at that because we didn't want to interupt her. Well the next night we had an impression to walk down that road so we did. There were some guys in a driveway fixing their car so we stopped to talk to them. They quickly told us they were busy, but then that same lady came walking out of the garage and said I'll talk to you guys. So we talked for about 20 minutes and she was the same lady we had passed the night before and given a card. We told about the restoration a little, and then she told us how she had been to a bunch of different churches, but never felt like any were right. Then She ended up asking us if we could come stop by sometime. It was amazing. We're going to start teaching her tomorrow hopefully.
We have another investigador. Her name is Carmen and she has her baptismal date but she works Sunday. She's been reading and praying a lot, and she's quit drinking. Last night we stopped by and read with her and her family. (Her family are all members). She ended up saying that she's never been happier and that she's going to church this Sunday no matter what. She's one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met.
Things are going incredible here in Oceanside. We are in the most ghetto part of our mission, but it's so much fun. A lot of humble people, and a lot of sad things that go on here. A lot of people have some hard things happening to them, but it's so amazing to be able to help them make a change and find true happiness.
Hope everything is going well at home. I love you all and want you to know that I know that Christ lives. He suffered and died for us because he loves us. The Lord puts people in our paths to prepare them to hear the word. Remember who you are because those people are watching and observing you. Vayan con Dios!

Love Elder Whittle
