 Letter from May 5, 2014

 Hey Mom,

The Delgado family has their date for baptism for June 14th and they are very excited. We would do it earlier, but their father is going to be out of town for a bit and he was all like, "You guys better not do it without me! I wanna be baptized too!" Talk about excitement, right? haha. So, the work is great. We just picked up more investigators and now our teaching pool is 25. Elder Mata and I are just having a blast ripping it up here... So all is well here in Sacramento. 

Man, everybody is getting married and having babies now. And now a lot of my friends are beginning to return home from their missions and I am over a year out. Man, life is just killing me right now. Way too fast. Oh, and hey Mom, I need you to send me some information so I can begin working on genealogy on p-days. I'd like to get started on Dad's side of the family, too. It's just something that I really wanna start doing.

This might make you laugh. President told me,
"Elder Sierra, I know you don't want to be a leader."
"Not really, but I'm not trying to run from it."
"Really?! Because I keep asking why your district leaders and zone leaders put your abilities down as 'junior' and they keep telling me you threaten to strangle them if they don't"
Haha good times...I like working with people on a personal level and when you become DL or ZL things as far as proselyting go are just not the same.

And please don't remind me that I only have about 9 months left *cry* *sniff* it hurts to think about it. lol.

Anyway Mom I love you and I will talk to you later.

Elder Sierra
