Family, We finally had rain in this area. Although it is far too late to save crops and the other fields out here. It rained for about 2 days straight and within a couple hours the ground sucked it all up. Very quick because the land is so dry. We were able to teach a good amount of people this past week and really get to know the ward more. It was really great to have a better relationship with the members. We also had zone conference on Tuesday and that went really good. Learned a lot and good to see other elders and hear from the mission president. We have a baptismal date for a 9 yr old girl that we may have to push back some because the family struggles to come to church often. That is really the only thing holding her back but we have talked a lot with the family and to their relatives who can hopefully just pick up the girl and take her to church if the parents can't or something. We are praying things work out with them though. I have been able to speak some more spanish which is really fun. I have noticed that I am a lot more comfortable in speaking spanish then in english when it comes to teaching a lesson about the gospel. I can teach really good in spanish but I can better answer questions and concerns obviously in english. But all is well in the area and we are doing good. The weather has been less intense so I am grateful for that. Thanks for all you do. Love Elder Roe
