well i still havent made the cookies you sent me but well get on it. good elder

morleys mom sent you that stuff. he´s a pretty cool kid. still in tamaulipas. and he grows the meanest beard. uh fix the door....hahahah

the new area is deader than a doornail. but weve been workin hard. the people react differently in each area. its funny cuz the mentalities are different. like 30 min away and it changes. everthing is more expensive here and apperently there was only three baptisms in the area in the last year and none in the last three months and the other elders havent seen one in six months. so we have tons of work to do. living with the four is pretty sweet actually. i like it alot. just

gets a little crazy sometimes and on mondays some other elders have to

come and stay at our house so we have six. but its all good. i get to have divisions with elder wakefield, my old comp, tomorrow so im excited for that. hes the big zl here right now with elder mireles, my first comp. as the little zl here.

funny how that worked out. yeah i miss playing the guitar. i still can play the same i just dont remember how anything goes whenever i pick up a guitar haha. but i think theres a rule now that we cant buy guitars or somethin like that i dunno. its been nice having a mexican comp. hes helped me with my spanish a ton. and with the four noone speaks english. not even me to elder brockbank is the funny part. and i tried to pray in english this week outloud..... it was a joke. it

was mostly spanglish. its a ward here in the city. they think were hometeachers. but there not bad mostly. ha anyway. well gotta go. thanks for everthing hope granps gets better soon. tell him hello and love em. sure miss all my grandparents

love. nate

Elder Morley and Elder Free's last day together

i got to my new area last tuesday. its good. i like the area itself alot. its in the center ofthe city. like one of the main metro stations its in our area and itssuper clean for here anyway, you can get anywhere in the area in 20min. and the house is good. four of us live in it so it makes it pretty fun. elder brockbank actually lives with me now. from the mtc one of my best buddies and elder wakefield my old comp is now the zone leader. my comp is the district leader and theyre all pretty cool. they just make the areas fun. the work here right now is dead. we have like no investigators progressing and the members all just think that we should teach less actives all the time cuz theres alot and the bishop is pretty much the same. we were talking how we want the members to always think in who they could share the gosple with and spoke in sacrement on ways they could do it and the bishop said its too hard..... great. weve got tons of support. hahahah. the food is better here though. like it doesnt make me sick as much. i was pretty sick last week before transfers. but yeah. i live in guadalupe in the col. centro in this little alley its called
calle privada mier y noriega. numero 355 interior 2.
col. centro, guadalupe, nuevo leon

somethin like the at is the dirrection. its only like 15-20 minutes from my last house and its the zone next to the offices. i like this area more but i liked the ward there more. i miss that ward my converts. thats what i dont like abo0ut the transfers. my comp is elder montaño. hes pretty chill. hes from the state of mexico by the capital anyway. sounds like you guys are having fun. thats cool mike is doin good at choir. thats way fun. thatd be cool to go to ut st id like to go there but i wish i left strait away for my mission. ellie and sam are gonna outski me by the time i get home thats pretty fun though that sam and ellie are there. hope they move in close still so i can go over and mooch all their food. hahah yeah brad. thats nuts hes gettin married i dont feel like were that old..... but eveyone here thinks im like 26 cuz im huge and have no hair hahah. anyway. talk to you ssooon
