Déjà Vu

I got a call last monday night that i was going to be having another son. so on tuesday Elder Barnett was born!! yay!! he's from farmington utah and we went to highschool at the same time. he's a good lil dude and is super similar to his brother Elder Scott. its been quite the trip training again and moving to Mercedes (one of the old areas that i covered). so much crazy stuff has gone down, we now only cover Mercedes, "Queen City" we met a Viuko (big gang down here) who almost got his foot cut off, it was a good experience for elder barnett. we are also on bikes again. its nuts down here. i thought laredo was but... no wayy.. the valley is worse. elder barnett accidently called me elder garcia.. i was offended by my son.. haha jk he's super great and eager to learn everything!! he has a million questions allll dayyyy long its awesome and he is getting used to riding a bike in the heat! haha. random scripture for you to read. Joshua 1:9. I had mad Deja Vu at a zone meeting before i gave a training on teaching. im in the biggest zone in the mission. I know i am where i am supposed to be. there is 30 of us. i gave a training on teaching and it really opened my eyes on the importance of the spirit cause the spirit is truly the teaching in everything. the weather is starting to cool down its not that hot anymore.

cool experience of the week.
last night we were riding our bikes and stopped and started talking to these 2 guys in their yard. everything was going pretty good until this boracho pulled up on his bike and the 2 guys started getting pretty mad and told him to go away and kept telling us that we need to teach him cause he needs the lord more than anyone, we tried to talked to all 3 of them but the first 2 guys didnt want to say anything until the boracho left, we asked the guy Z"hey do you love your family?" he said yes and then we asked "do you want to change for your family?" and he said yes.. so then we asked.. "will you take us to your family so we can share a message with all of them?" then the 2 guys told the boracho, take the missionaries to your family!! and the boracho said, only if you give me another beer.. so they did and he chugged it and then we went on our way with him. he took us to his house... and on the way there i felt a little weird like oh man what are we getting into but.. i also felt like something good would come out of it. soo he takes us to his house and his wife opens the door and we start talking to her and them both and they are just in a huge struggle right now financially and stressed and worried and have 4 kids.. the husband wants to change his life and be good for the kids and be an example for them. it was honestly one of the greatest things ive seen as a missionary.. they are so humble right now and want the lord more than ever in their life. so we are starting with them and i hope they continue to progress, they are so great! mercedes is a weird city but its awesome!:) the church is true and whatever you do.. just choose the right okay.
