April 9, 2012 letter

Dear Family,

Sorry the email didn`t go through.  The file was too large.  The computer said that it sent last week.  I got a call from President Salinas Wednesday morning telling me that you didn`t get my email.  I sent it again today.  This past week was good.  On Sunday we did divisions so that 1 of us could stay in Ticul and the other go to Chapab for church.  I went with a member in his mototaxi ( like the one from Nacho Libre) to Chapab.  We found the rented house in Chapab where the meetings are held, left our backpacks there, and went out to bring the investigators to church.  An inactive family that we are teaching didn`t want to go, but with a little more talking they agreed to let their daughter (our investigador), and her little sister go with us.  Their aunt also went along.  Across the street from this family lives the other investigators.  The 2 of them went with us also.  We had a total of 5 adults and 2 girls travel in the mototaxi.  The 5 of them rode in the cart in front, and I rode on the back of the motorcycle with the member.  We got them to church, and fortunately the Branch President had moved the services to 10:00 a.m., so we didn`t miss anything.

This month should be good.  We have 4 baptisms planned for the 21st.  Jorge and Victoria are a couple that should be getting married soon.  Once they get married, they can get baptized.  Yesterday we started teaching Fernando, the boyfriend of a member.  He has been going to church the last few weeks, including conference, and accepted a date for the 21st.  The last one is Johanna, the little girl from the family in Chapab. 

Next week the entire mission is going to Cancun.  We are going to see Elder Neil L. Andersen.  We leave Monday at 2:30 p.m. from the Stake Center in Merida.  We spend the night in houses of other missionaries.  We should have about 10 missionaries per house.  I was told 16 but I don`t think it will be that many.  On Tuesday morning we`ll listen to him.

I`ll be writing early next week also.

Elder Gubler
