Dear Family,
ALA GRAN CHUCHA!!!!  HOLY COW THAT’S SO CRAZY!!! I knew the church was true I didn´t know it was desperate!!!!??? I know you will do awesome.
First of all for the number it’s the same one as before that you called me on if you need it again its 0050230127450 and my comp is going to talk to his family at 5 our time so if you call me at 7 our time it will be good I´m not sure how the time difference is so just if you could figure it out that would be better for me.
This week has been good. We have had some success with doing our 7 visits with the members and everything has been worked out so this Saturday they are going to get married and this Sunday they are going to get baptized.
So I don´t have a lot of time but this week have been working a lot and we are helping Edwin with his problems with Joseph smith and he came to church so that was good and the other family also came so we had all of our 5 baptismal dates in the church. I know if they keep coming that they will learn it’s true.
I was reading in Alma 17 about Alma and the sons of Mosiah and I really like verses 13 and 14 about how it tells us the importance of our work and how they really started a harder work. So we really need to have confidence in ourselves and the mission president gave me some good advice also that I am never to feel sorry for asking people to do the Lord’s work. So I am going to be more bold so that the people can help us. Some of them get it, but they need to understand that this is not the work of the missionaries it’s the ward’s work that we are here to help with.
 Well that’s all
 Love Elder Cox talk to you Sunday!!!!

Dear Family,

This week we have really just been looking for more investigators and we have had some success we have found husband of a return missionary and he is awesome. His name is Edwin Franco and his is really awesome. He is really interested in reading the Book of Mormon and he only really has 2 doubts, they are the BOM and Joseph Smith. So really all we need to do is get him to pray about the BOM and the he can know both of the 2. We also found another family that has had the missionaries before and so they also know our purpose, but they never have really like wanted to listen and they have started to come to church. Their names are Johnathan and lucy. Oh also we have talked with the family Marquez and they aren´t going to be able to get baptized until like the 18th cause they haven´t published the thing in the newspaper. The lawyer said they were going to do it today.

The changes are tomorrow and we don´t have changes still so that’s good that means that yeah i am going to the next time cause we only stay in one place for 6 months that means that I will be here for my birthday. I like it that way cause everyone said that they are going to have a party for me and that means that I am going to eat a lot of food and then get sick and fat.

We had Zone Conference on Tuesday and President taught us about all the extra work we have to and that we have to always be looking for something more we can do to ensure that our investigators come to church. Cause if we do all we can they are going to feel the importance of it.
I remember when we would go to Phoenix me and Ang and always some of the other grandkids would always watch like 7 movies on the way there.

I did get the package thank you a lot. I got it like 2 or 3 weeks ago. I think I just forgot to tell you.

On Friday we had another meeting and it was for the new trainers and so we went and we talked about the importance of doing the training for the new missionaries and that they need to know all of the importance of the things cause if they don´t know it then how are they going to let the investigators know the importance of it. He also told us that how they turn out is all up to us, so we have a lot of weight on our shoulders. It’s really scary. The President sometimes he just seems mad all the time. I think it’s just cause he also is stressed and he knows that if he acts like this is important more people are going to think of it as important also.
We are starting a new change and this is the first change where we won´t have to worry about extra studies so I hope we can get a lot more done and that we can be more effective both knowing what we have to do and both knowing the area really well. I am really grateful for this area and what I have learned, I guess I have something else to learn or something here so I hope I can learn it well.

Well love you all thank you for sending the package.

Love,  Elder Cox
