Letter 5/3/10

We received the picture above in the mail today along with a sweet letter from President & Sister Hansen. It is of the day Elder Robertson arrived in Veracruz. What a perfect Mother's Day gift!

Dear Family,
Soy bien. So happy to hear that Stake Conference went well and you were blessed to hear from Elder Ringwood of the Seventy. It's great to hear that he spoke of the importance of serving a mission. And dad, that is really cool that he was also the Mission President in Korea and knows your President. I loved hearing that our Stake now has 15 missionaries serving. That is sweet! Great to hear Brother Widdison asked about me. Tell him Hola!

Things are going great here in Mexico. It's hard to believe I've been here a month already. Elder Gil and I are very busy teaching. Lots of new investigators & lots of lessons. Si mucho bautismos! Some of my favorite scriptures are 3 Nephi 11, Alma 40 & Moroni 8. We use these scriptures a lot when teaching the investigators. The baptisms are good. We had a baptism on Sunday night. I was happy to baptize & will send pictures next week. We have a family of 4 being baptized Jueves. Then the following week another family of 4 will be baptized. So our lessons must be good & the Spirit is with us. In Zone Conference we learned how to invite people to baptism and it has been working. This is such a blessing for these families to have the gospel in their lives. I am so excited for all of them!

Sorry to hear about the Thunder. Sounds like they had a great season & there is always next year. We play basketball here and the little kids like to watch me dunk! ha ha ha! The hoops are a little smaller so I am dunking in games non-stop. It's so fun! Good luck in basketball try-outs Tanner! Today we went paint-balling and it was a blast.

I love you all very much and can't wait to see how much your testimonies have grown. Continue to read The Book of Mormon. So happy to hear that you were able to spend the evening at the Temple as a family last week. Tell everyone hello.

Elder Robertson
