Hey momma

How is everything going for ya. Sounds like you guys had a busy weekend. So Briley got baptized how awesome is that! I wish I could have been there. I can't believe that Briley is 8 years old now. Isn't it amazing how fast the time just flies by. A couple days ago I was sitting and reflecting over these last 20 months of my life as a missionary and I really can't believe how fast it has gone by and how much I have changed. I really can't even remember my life not being a missionary. This will be my last General conference here in Mexcio and I only have 18 more Sunday as a missionary. Man that is really crazy for me to say. I really love being a missionary and preaching the true gospel of Jesus Christ to the people here in Mexico. I can't even imagine the day when President Solomon will take my name tag and call me Brother Reed and not Elder. oh man!
For that I know that I need to give everything that I have in these last 4 months. I really know that as I do it the Lord will bless each one of you back there. Always remember that as we keep the commandment we are qualifing to receive blessing from God. I love D&C 82:10 that say that the lord is obligated to bless us when we do his will.
All in all everything is going good here in Mexico. Me and my companion are going to work hard to try to baptize 7 people this week so keep us in your prayers in this week. I love you all so much and always remember that I LOVE EACH ONE OF YOU SOOO MUCH. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT I AM HERE FOR ANYTHING THAT YOU NEED.

con mucho amor

Hey momma how is everything going for ya? I can imagine that you are pretty busy.So how is work going? Well all in all everything is going good over here. I am staying really busy and to tell you the truth I feel like I have never worked so hard in my life. This week has been a really special week for me. We had the opportunity to baptize a lady named Rosalva. She has been listening to the misionaries for over 25 years and this last Saturday we had the privledge to see her make the covenant of baptism. I love so much how this gospel changes the lives of those who are willing to find out for themselves that it is true. I think the hardest part of the gospel is keepin the commandments every single day. Satan is trying so hard to get us to fall and he won't take a day off. I am so privledged to be a missionary of Jesus Christ and I know that I need to contiune stong until the end!!
Well now changing the subject. How is James doing? Is his back feeling better? Is he able to shoe horses? I have been pretty worried for him. And you momma, how are you feeling? Do you feel like you have recovered your strength? if not make sure to keep is easy so that you can heal all the way. Well I talk to Elder Solomon last week and he told me that he only has 9 more weeks left. How crazy is that. Time is flying by so fast. Well I can't really think of anything else to say, I want you all to know that I love you so much and that I am giving my all still. I LOVE YOU

Hey momma how is everything going for ya? Well over here in Mexico everything is going great. Me and my companion are just trying to keep busy trying to spread the gospel. We have been finding a lot of families but they just don’t seem to want to progress. Sometimes it is really hard to find a great family and have them accept everything in the first lesson, to then have them fall and not want anything to do with the church. I know that Satan is trying so hard to destroy this marvelous work that means that we just need to work harder. We need to give everything to the Lord. I know sometimes it is hard to do, but when we do it he is willing to give us soooo many blessing! I really have seen so many miracles these last couple of weeks here in the mission!
So James threw out his back this last week. Man I bet that has got to hurt. I wish i was there to help him shoe all of his horses. What is he going to do? Just make sure that he gets a blessing and everything will turn out good. Man I was thinking today and when I get home I will not know 5 of my nephews and nieces. How crazy is that? It is going to be so awesome to get to know them. Well all in all everything is going good for me right now. Just trying to hit me goals running! Well I better get going for now but i love you all so much!! Let me know if I can do anything for ya
