Satan working WAY overtime! November 16, 2009 Monday

Dear Family and Friends,

Sorry I don`t have tons of time, this computer started acting up and cut my time pretty short, but I`ll do what I can. Thanks so much for the updates of what`s going on. I`ll try to fill you all in on what`s going on.

We finally found out why Luis and Estella had been avoiding us. Maybe it was our Spanish, or maybe it was just Satan working WAY overtime, but somehow, Luis thought that tithing was 10% of our income annually PLUS an additional 50% of your income. Wow! Now we would have some pretty nice chapels if that were the case! Anyway, so we fixed that problem and they should progress a lot this coming week.

We went to Elias` birthday party yesterday. He turned 21 and we did a challenge with him...Daniel Chincha (remember the recent convert...he`s so incredible!) and the Familia Chapana who has been helping us our a TON with them that everyday they have to read a part of the Book of Mormon and then after reading their part pray to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and if the Book of Mormon is a true book. We made little reminder notes for everyone and everything. They are all going to get answers if they ask with real intent, and have faith in Christ. I felt so good about giving this challenge to everyone and I am so excited to see how it all turns out!

I love you all take care. :)

Love, Elder Hoglund
