Week 101

See ya in 2


I was really tempted to send just that home, but i think my mother would get a little upset over that hahah.
These best 2 years are coming to an end, and as I look back im honestly really happy, and im excited for the future, im sure ill be like everyone 40 years later still remembering it.  They were an amazing two years, and I could not have asked for a better mission nor a better end to it!  We baptized our dad and son here, and they were super excited, and were excited for them!
Love you all and see you soon!
Elder Hodson for the last time.

Week 99


Well friends two weeks left... time to get sentimental...

Just kidding not yet, or never.  This week was another hard week.  I dont know what it is about this area but every time we have something good happen something bad happens at the same time.  One of our families that was like super set for baptism ending up accepting a job to work on sundays, but the same day we found a family of 6!  Then sunday when we were waiting for one of our other investigators he got in a fight with his family, didnt go, but another family that we werent waiting for showed up.  Still nothings certain on when were going to baptize, but if all else fails my comp is gonna have tons of people next change.

Oh and this week on the ranch, our neighbors killed their two giant pigs for their daughters quinceaƱera. So there was screaming for like 2 hours from the other animals.  And of course being great neighbors they invited us to eat my least favorite foods, one called mole (what always makes me sick) and chincharrones (fried pig skins).
Love you all!

Week 98


This week was good!  We ending up finding 2 really cool new families this week.  One is from a little pueblo close by its a mom and her two sons.  Her two sons are really adhd, but theyre really funny.  The family had gone to church once before and never wanted to go again because it was another ward, but she came to our ward finally and she loved it, and her kids loved it too!  Shes great, hopefully in these next 2 week should be getting baptized.

The other family hasnt progressed yet, but thats because they had to go out of the city, but they have great potential.  Really exciting. 

These last few weeks should be great!
Love you all!

Week 97

Im Not dead yet.

This week was a fun one for sure!  We worked our butts off, and i feel like the harder we worked the less success we had.  Its been the first week of summer break here, so everybody we talk to just gives us the excuse of "oh were going out of town this weekend" so thats kind of stopped the progress a little bit, but we just keep pushing on.

Today for the 8th pday in a row we played vball.  Its gotten funny, because only us and the zone leaders show up to play, then we fill the rest in with members here.  The members here are actually really fun, and were planning on setting up a little tournament here with the stake.

We have been working with a guy named marco who about a little over a year ago got baptized, but never got confirmed.  Hes got a little weird situation, but his ex wife (never actually married) is a really cool recent convert, but he has some problems still:  but this last week we werent able to teach him, but he ended up in church on sunday dressed all nice, and actually paid attention.  It really shows that the lord actually works with us, and we thought he was a lost cause, but he pulled through!
Love you all!

Week 94



This week was another solid week!  We had another 2 baptisms.  Hermelinda and her son Axel.  We started teaching them a few weeks back, and they were just pure gold, really fun to teach them, and they had an awesome baptism.  The boilers in the church are broken so another cold baptism, but the holy ghost always pulls through to keep them warm.
Other than that we have a new president!  Still havent met him, but this thursday we have conference with him, so thats exciting.  
Love you all!

Week 93


This week was another great week!  Lots of miracles and we have a great week coming up.

This sunday we were a little nervous because one of the people we had baptized had problems with getting sunday off for her job, so we just left it up to the lord.  We werent sure how but she was able to get out of work on sunday and she showed up with her husband!  They even brought their dad along to and he was happy to be there!  Its great to see families brought in closer.  

We also have 2 baptisms for this saturday! So Ill send pictures next week, weve been extremely blessed this change!
Love you all!

Week 92

Happpy Fathers Day to the Best Dad!

First things first just want to wish a big happy fathers day to my dad!  Hes honestly the craziest but coolest guy youll ever meet and he is always in the service of the lord and is a huge influence for me in my life!  Love you pops! Derricks the man.

This week was great!  We ended up having 5 baptisms! After having to reteach everything and get them married and interviews and lots of stress, theyre all baptized and happy!  Pretty awesome!  We have another 3 baptisms coming up in the next few weeks from the news weve found in these weeks.  Lots of work and lots of fun!

Love you all!
