Hey momma,

Well I got a story for ya. Yesterday I was getting ready for Church and I got done taking my shower and then got my suit on. Well, I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth but when I got into the bathroom I remembered that I needed my waterbottle on my desk. Well I started to head out of the bathroom but as I turned around to go out the door was half way closed. Well as you guessed I ran straight into the egde of the door, But this is no ordinary door this is a mexican wood door. Well the edges of this door hasnt been sheared, so this door slit my foreheard open about 2 inches long. Well I went and showed my companion but he didnt seem to think it was that cool. Luckily I had my handy dandy wal mart first aid kit that had some bandaids. Well I put one on but it looked pretty silly so little. Momma I broke the sabbath but it was for a good cause. I went and bought some super glue and glued my cut shut. It works pretty good actually. So now I have a huge cut on my forehead and everyone thinks I am crazy for gluing it shut. hahahaha Well thats my story for the week I hope you enjoyed it. Well the super bowl girl actually got baptized 2 Sundays ago and got confirmed this Sunday. We also had another baptism this past Sunday. Momma, I love this gospel so much. I am so glad that people in our ward are starting to get more involed in this marvelous work. I love you all so much and please let me know if I can do anything for ya!
Love Elder Reed

Well I love you all so much and hope all is going great for you all. Please let me know if I can do anything for you all. Always be looking for missionary experiences as the Lord will place you in front of people that want to here about the gospel. I LOVE YOU
Hey dad, I wanted to write you and tell you how much you mean to me! Thank you for teaching me so many thing and always being a great example! I dont know if you know but Bri is having a pretty hard time in her life right now. I know also that she considers you as her father. Don't tell her that I told you but maybe you could check up on her. I LOVE YOU DAD and thanks for everything!

Well Dad that is so crazy that you have all that stuff in your shoulder! I am so sorry! I have to admit that I did laugh for a little bit when I found out that you had a metal sliver in your eye. I think that Reeds are the only people that would have metal slivers in their eyes ;)
Well I dont have transfers so I get another cycle with my hijo! I am so excited! There are so many people here in Tulancingo that want to here about the gospel. We have this investigator that owns a tortilleria. So we go and help here make tortillas sometimes. I will have to send you some pictures;)

February 2, 1009


Well I got tempted pretty bad yesterday. Me and my companion were walking down one of the main streets in Tulancingo when I saw and heard something amazing. In a little shop where they sell chips and drinks ( its kinda like a gas station) the SUPER BOWL was playing. Oh man, I wanted to watch it so bad but I thought to myself if I dont watch it the lord will bless us. Well later that night we found a less active family and talked to them for awhile. We found out that they have a 9 year girl that hasn't been baptized. Well this next week we are going to baptize her. It is amazing how the Lord will try your faith before he will bless you. Ether 12:6 So dad's shoulder is bothering him. That isn't good. Do you know if he has gotten a blessing. If not I would recommend it. I have seen so many miracles happen through the power of the priesthood! It truly is the power to act in Gods name. I will be praying for him though. So the cardinals lost. Oh man I wish I could of seen that game. It sounded really intense! Well at least they got to the super bowl. Next year they are just going to have to win ;) Well I better take off but I love you all so much. Maybe if you could, you could send me some more pictures of our family. I love seeing how big everyone is getting. Well I love you all so much and please let me know if you need anything.
con mucho Amor
