Celebrating Dad's birthday

Braxton and the other missionaries went to Pena again. They ran across a guy who told them about a cave. Braxton of course was excited because he loves adventure. The guy went with them and Braxton was talking to him. As they talked they discussed stories about "the devils cave." Braxton said the stories weren't good stories either, then the guy told them that is where they were at. Braxton said it was way tight and they lighted their way with cell phones.

Braxton didn't work a lot in his area this week because of Christmas and being in Metepec for the majority of the time. They did find a family of five however. The family had a nephew that had passed away a few months ago and they were interested in the message the missionaries had.

Things are going good and the time is flying by. Braxton is way happy though and enjoying his mission. For Christmas Braxton got the "Miracle of Forgiveness" by Spencer W. Kimball and he is enjoying reading it. (he loves it) His favorite quote so far is: "Hell is paved with good intentions!"

Yesterday only seven people were at church and two of those were the missionaries. So that is the only thing that isn't good right now. ("it sucks, oh and so does Satan")

Loved talking to the family on Christmas. It was a highlight for Braxton and us all.

You can tell Braxton is working hard, his soles on his shoes say's it all. Keep up the good work.
