Letter from 1/20/2015

Hey Dad,

Well first off, I am still in Lleida. I am going to be here for another six weeks and everyone in our district will be going home in 6ish months so we have a super old district. 

Boom all about those seahawks! Can´t wait to hear the outcome of that super bowl game. I guess God has been answering my prayers. It reallly does vale la pena to work hard and pray hard. 

Yeah I got to study a little bit more with the language. Definitely have falted a little bit in that area my entire life. I would definitely like to come home with more than just a missionary vocab too. Well I can talk about most things, but I would like to talk about anything. 

I think Ammon is one of my favorite stories in the Book of Mormon. I started reading Jesus the Christ and wow, that is a good read definitely a lot to take in while reading though.

We didn´t end up having those baptisms this week, cause one we haven't seen in a while and the other got work in Bilboa for like a month so we won't see him for awhile. Guess things are still going good though. We have some future prospects though for baptism so it looks pretty good hear in Lleida. One more transfer and I am super stoked this will be the area en que llevo mas tiempo. Man I know I don´t study very well but there are sometimes it is just easier to phrase things in Spanish. 

Well, love you dad

Letter to Mom

Hey mom,

Well this last week was super good but...... no baptisms. The one we were counting on ended up getting work in Bilboa for a month so we won't see him for awhile. Freakin Satan sucks! And I am still in Lleida. This will be the longest amount of time being in an area. Super crazy. And same companion. And my distirct well at least all of us elders will all be home in 6ish months so we have a super old district. 

Boom you are the best! Cant wait for the face wash. Thank you for sending it. 

You might want to tell the Hammonds and Grandma Kay to send everything to the mission office cause I just got their stuff today. They sent stuff to Santander and I was there a year ago. Lucky the stuff they sent got to me today by a really good elder who just came to my district from there. And tell Traci that little wood box is probably coming home with me. I am to dumb to figure it out. 

That sucks that Bria is having bad dreams, but kinda funny that you got kicked in the nose. She must have been sleeping upside down. 

Super crazy that Chas flew out yesterday. Maybe he stopped in Provo to get his visa or something or they just flew them a day early but that doesn't make sense cause the group of new missionaries doesn't leave the mtc till today. weird. 

Well I can´t think of anyone who is going on a mission here in Lleida, but it could be someone from Catarroja. Well the days keep getting shorter and I have one more transfer here in smelly old Lleida but it is pretty good we still have some prospect baptisms coming up so I am super stoked. 

Love you 

Elder Blake Billingsley
