Elder Matthew Whittle-- Aug 7, 2012

Que pachuca por Taluca! Cuantos anos tienes ahora papa? Como 30 algo? haha espero que lo disfrute! Gracias por ser un buen ejemplo para mi. Al seguir con mi mision me doy cuenta de todas las cosas buenas que me has ensenado a mi. Estoy agradecido por tu paciencia con migo y por tu amor. Espero que pueda andar en motocicleta o algo con M. Seria muy bien para el. El no es miembro todavia. Ha tenido un pasado muy deficil, pero el es uno de mis mejores amigos que tengo aqui en Del Mar. Se me hace muy deficil de salir de este area. Hemos fijado siete bautismos que vienen en esta mez y la mez que entra. Ojala que pueda yo regresar por esos bautismos.
The Moores are such a great family. I miss them all a bunch. I got a letter from Elder Moore the other week. He said he's doing really well. Seemed really positive. Tell them all hi and I love and miss them.
So something really sad happened this week, but in a way it was good as well. We have an investigator who all his brothers and sisters are members, but live in S M. He has 3 daughters, and he hasn't been progressing towards baptism at all. He already has a testimony of the church, and joseph smith. Well we've been praying a lot for him, and what happened is he just found out his wife, who is super catholic, has been cheating on him. So they're breaking up. It was really really sad to hear about it, but he's now is coming to church, reading, and praying a lot, and wants to be baptized as soon as he can. It's sad that it took that, but now he's really serious about putting forth the effort to be baptized. Kind of a crazy story huh?
Things are on fire down here. It's going so great. I've never seen so many miracles on my mission as I have this transfer. We taught a girl in the singles ward for the first time last week, and we taught her the restoration. We invited her to be baptized and she immediately said yes I will. She then asked us what do I need to do to get ready. We've taught her twice since then and she's understanding everything and keeping all her commitments. She's awesome. We taught her the law of chastity on the second lesson and told her she needs to either get married or stop living with her boyfriend. She agreed to do that as well. She has definitely been prepared. I love it down here in Del Mar. Oh ya by the way I am getting transferred. I don't know to where yet. Transfer meeting is today. The family S. are going to take me up to Vista to the transfer meeting. It was really hard to say goodbye to everybody here, but that's how it goes. I can't wait until you meet J. and M. They're so awesome. Some of the greatest people I've ever met. It's going to be really really hard to say goodbye to them.
Well things are all good here with me. I love the mission! It's definitely the best thing I've ever done. Hope everything is going great with all of you. Keep praying for missionary opportunities, and then Lord will give you them. There's a lot of Joy that comes from missionary work. I never want to stop doing it. Love you all. Cuidense mucho! Adios
Con Amor,
Elder Witle!
