¡Felíz Otoño! Happy Fall!

Elder Hill with a GIGANTIC lemon!


Sounds like everything is going great. Keep up the goodness and you will all see the blessings of doing what is right. Tell Allie happy birthday. I´ll send a list for my CHRISTMAS package next week. So far I´m thinking dark chocolate orange, orange stick, dove dark choc, reeses, maybe brownies in a sealed ziplock..... they usually last three weeks... who knows though. That´s it so far. I´ll let you know next week if anything changes. Love you. Thanks for the prayers and taking care of Josh and Des. 
P. S. Thanks for the scripture. (He who overcomes will gain eternal life, avoid the second death, inherit the celestial kingdom, and rule many kingdoms… “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that aovercometh will I give to eat of the hiddenbmanna, and will give him a cwhite dstone, and in the stone a newename written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” Rev 2:17)
I wouldn´t mind the New Jersey boot if you want. It would probably help with my orthotics so that my heel doesn´t get popped up too much. 42 is what I have now and they are tight, so I´m sure 43 would be perfect. I´ll send my box soon... promise! 

Love you. Thanks for your love and your support. Keep up the good work with Josh and Des, and Mike.

¡Felíz Otoño! 

One hermano told us yesterday in his talk that yesterday was the first official day of Fall, but I don´t really know because I don´t have a calendar like at home that says "Fall Starts" or something like that. It´s pretty nice here because the weather is cooling off and it isn´t so hard to walk all day. The sun still burns, but it isn´t hot. Elder Clayton is finally adjusting to Mexico, which is interesting to relive. I didn´t get sick when I got here, but he sure has. Poor guy. But he is battling through it like a champ! Spanish is getting much better as well. All in all, he´s just great. 

This week has been really great as far as finding those "golden" investigators. We have been working in a village called Anaya that is the furthest point in our area. I only went there twice in three months, but I felt that there were people there waiting for us. We starting working there when Elder Clayton got here. The second week we found David, Nictehah, Hayna, and Adrian. They are a family that have gone from church to church looking for something that would help them get closer to God, progress, and fill their souls. They haven´t found anything so far, but they went to church yesterday and liked it! We will see them again today, but they´re great to work with. Also, Wendy is Flor´s sister (like Jose and Flor from a few months ago). Almost her whole family are members, but just lack her, her dad, and a sister that doesn´t live at home anymore. She also went to church. One day I asked her what she learned from the pamphlet about the restoration and she said, "...that I have to go to church to receive more blessings, read the scriptures, and pray.." The Spirit can teach a heart any concept if we are open to it. It´s really great to see how the Gospel changes lives. 
Something  I learned in Alma 1:29-31, ( 29 And now, because of the steadiness of the church they began to be exceedingly rich, having abundance of all things whatsoever they stood in need—an abundance of flocks and herds, and fatlings of every kind, and also abundance of grain, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious things, and abundance of silk and fine-twined linen, and all manner of good homely cloth.
 30 And thus, in their prosperous circumstances, they did not send away any who were naked, or that were hungry, or that were athirst, or that were sick, or that had not been nourished; and they did not set their hearts upon riches; therefore they were liberal to all, both old and young, both bond and free, both male and female, whether out of the church or in the church, having no respect to persons as to those who stood in need.
 31 And thus they did prosper and become far more wealthy than those who did not belong to their church.”) is that if we want to be "rich" we should be members of the one and only true Church. Not just rich in material, but spiritual also. Blessings come in many forms for doing what is right- which is doing what God wants us to do. Keep studying the scriptures and you will feel a power and knowledge come into your life. It´s great! 

Well, Mexico is going well. The days just keep flying by faster and faster as each day goes by. 

Love you all, 

Elder Hill
