1/25/10 Companion from Idaho Falls

Whats up fam? whats crackin? So Yeah all here is chill. My new area is finally starting to spring up with some potential, which I am very thankful for. As for the drunk, (Bolo) he couldn't quite give up la bebida, and continued drinking and didn't go to church this week, it's just that the dude has some friends that are bad influences that make him drink, it sucks though cause they treat him like crap.
But Yeah, all is well here still. We found some more people to work with so that's what we are doing here right now.
My companion is from Idaho Falls, Idaho. He is pretty chill but all we do is talk in English and its killing my Spanish. I need to stop doing that. Yes, I received like 5 more packages this week, thank you very much, and tell all the ward members thank you very, very much for the cards, haha I have received like 60 letters from the members of our ward. Tell them Thanks for sure. I don't think there is anything I need to tell you at the moment. But that I love you all, Hahaha thats so awesome that you met up with Chris, did you go to his house or anything? or just to the campus??
Ha ha I miss that kid sooo much. We had some good times in Arizona.
well felizidades to Marla for the new baby, wow! I bet that house is crazy-there are so many little kids running around there now.
Tell Colby Happy Birthday too and sorry for being a little late on that one.

Ok so about the truck, If you guys wanna but the Truck, BUY IT. But talk to dad about all the options first, you all know I'm not way, way too picky and I'm willing for whatever unless you wanna buy me Tate and Chuck's old truck. Now that would be sweet. hahahahahah
But yeah, if the price falls right, get it , and I will be eternally grateful ha!

Ok but yeah, so here all is well. My area the 28 de Marzo, is very awesome, and the members here rock, there are like five that are returned missionaries and are very willing to leave and work with us. So we are working very, very hard right now and pushing the work forward. haha!
Quote of the day:WORK HARD, PLAY HARD, PRAY HARD. I saw that on a Evangelical t-shirt.
Well Love You All, thanks for the support always and thanks for everything.

Maybe Making a connection with Elder Austin!!!!!

OK that would be freakin awesome to see that lady and I could send a few ties to Jace through her, but I still have to find them cause seriously it's hard to find ties here that are awesome where I'm at.
But Yeah, tell Trudy the number of my phone so she can call me when she comes to Teguz. She can call me and we can meet up or something. . . haha that would be sooo cool. . (I told him that Trudy Austin called and said that the lady that Jace lived with on his mission in Washington-Mrs. Soloman will be trying to look him up. She is headed to Honduras on Jan. 28, and Jace is his good friend from grade school to High School)
My new companions name is Elder Roberts. He is from Idaho and only has 5 months in the mission. So I am teaching him Spanish more or less, because his other comps were kinda slackers. But yeah it is all going good. He's a great person and we are working hard.
But Yeah I was in Villa Vieja and I was gonna have 4 baptisms there, then they sent me to Monjaras where I was gonna have 6 baptisms. HAHA then they sent me to this place where there is absolutely nothing. HAHA its sooo freaking hard. But we have to work hard and I'm thinking we might have one baptism this change. Haha but we'll see what happens. I never did have those ten I talked about before they took me out before I could.
But yeah some elders got in to trouble for something and for that I came to this area the other missionary here did something bad so they put me in his place. We are gonna see what we can do here.

OK a neat story:
The other day there was some drunk dude in the street me and my comp thought he looked reduculous, so we decided to contact him and help him out a little bit. So we did that, and we invited him to church and all that fun stuff, thinking that he would never show up. HaHa but the next day, he came!!! hahaha so we are going to his house tomorrow to teach him and see what we can do. Hopefully he wants to change. It really kinda seems like he does. haha It was neat though, he smelled so badly of beer in church I game him some of my gum. HAHA
But yeah thats whats going on here in this part of the world. I hope everything is well for all of you and tell Terri I'm fine and not to worry about it, and Chuck, DONT COME HERE!!!hahahahaalright, in 15 months i'll be home don't even worry about it. (I told him that Terri and Chelsi aka"Chuck" worried about him and might come there and bring him home!!haha)

Another Change??? Back to TEGUZ

He was transfered to Monjaras that is in the South about 2 weeks ago. It is around 6 hours from Tegucigalpa. It seems weird that they would move him so soon. I do know he will be eating better, and he will not mind that!!

How goes the Battle family?? So whats going on there in Idaho, My humble awesome amazing home. Well here all is good, but I have a lot to tell you all today. OK so I at first had a change to a place called Monjaras, and I was there for 2 weeks, with a comp named Edler Diaz from Honduras, now I'm with an Elder Roberts in Teguz. So yeah thats the update now, they called me last night at like 10 PM to tell me that too. So this morning I woke up at 3 and came here to Teguz. so thats where I'm at. So yeah its pretty cool. And yeah thats what happened. Now I'm here in Teguz again, so thats cool, but my time in Monjaras was really, really cool. We worked very very hard. and we were gonna have like 8 baptisms, but its all good, Elder Diaz will have all those baptisms and I have to start all over again with a new area.But im not complaining at all, I'm actually really stoked about it. It should be an amazing opportunity. How is everyone else doing? Tell Jodee thank you very, very much for the email, and that its great to here from her, and tell dad I love his emails. haha his spelling is very very interesting. But yeah I love you all sooo much and that is the lowdown on my situation here in Honduras.Love you all AND TELL MY BOYS I LOVE THEM!!

Elder Beckstead and Elder Moracos 12/09

One of the last times they were together-Mitch misses Elder Maracos!!

Parts of a letter to Chelsi!! December 28,2009

Tell Tate hey and it was great to talk to him tooo. haha But yeah if you ever come here il'l kill you. Unless i'm here to protect you. Seriously. Yeah ummm I shouldn't have said anything about that, ( that he was shot at his 2nd week in Honduras) I bet mom is freakin out right now. Hey and don't you worry, Im not gonna fall off the normal wagon, I've changed alot, but in a different way. The way people need to change in the mission, I just have a higher perspective on life, I have found out some very neat things about the church that make people wonder why everyone in the world is not a member. Seriously, if everyone knew all that I know about the church right now, everyone would be a member. haha Well love ya, tell Colby hi and I love him too.

Moved to the South again--Monjaras

OK, so to start with, no I don't sleep in a hammock, but yeah I did get changes an I'm in the South very far away from everything. It's all good though. My area is very nice even though it's hot. OK dad told me about the horse, and its good to hear that Kate is doing very well. The average day in my life, is wake up, work out, study and leave at 11, then work all day and come home at nine. My new comp is kinda racist, but he's cool, I just have to be chill with him. I MISS THE CRAP out of Marecos. (his last Companion) I loved that dude, and still do. Yea I'm in an area very, very simular to Triunfo. It's very ugly but its nice. I don't mind it. Yes we have running water, so that is all good. And a very nice shower I might add. The apartment is very nice, do not worry ok. Where I'm at is about a 6 hour bus ride from Teguz. And thats about all I have time for. OK so that's the update, love you all.
