Hey guys!, So this week was very busy! We had a son! My wife (companion) Elder QuiƱones gave birth on Tuesday at 9:30 in the morning to a white boy from Utah named Elder Embley. hahaha. So this week is crazy. I have to go to the mission offices. I have divisions with the assistants so I don’t have any time to write anyone. I’m gonna write you guys better another day. Sorry! i love you guys. I’m safe. I got the money. Elder Lowder Well, at least we know he’s still alive!

Hey Guys, So this week was great! Our Zone is number one in baptisms in the mission now! WOOOO!!! Quinten L. Cook came to visit and spoke to us! WOOOOW!! So I was pretty excited when he came and spoke to us with Elder Maines from the 70 presidency. The spirit was so strong testifying to us of their callings and of their words. So tomorrow my companion and I are going to have a kid (greenie). We’re going to train a new missionary for 2 weeks! hahahaha. It’s going to be awesome! We’re gonna work him hard and teach him a lot! We’re way excited about that! So, I don’t know how I can be more detailed in my emails. We baptized a family this week Brenda, Kevin, and Luis. They were way way excited and ready for their baptism. They were having a lot of problems as a family and didn’t know how to fix them. But the problems that they had have been changing and they are happier then ever! So everything is good here, we’re working hard and trying to change this Ward as well as we can! What can I do to help you guys? I love you and miss you all! Elder Lowder

Hey guys, So this week was very good! We did divisions with the assistants which was fun and I learned a lot with them! Also, Elder Cook is going to come on Saturday like you said, Dad. I’m way way excited about that! I’m way excited because this week went great! We baptized 16 as a zone and my companion and I baptized 3, so I’m pretty excited about that. On Sunday I talked to my President and he told me that my new Presidents name is what you guys just said, I forgot what it is, but that’s it, I’m 100 % sure. So I’m pretty tired but happy happy happy about the work that’s going on! So I hope that I can do everything in my power to help the Lord in my life, but not just in this short mission, but in every minute of my life. I never want to let him down, ever! I love this Gospel and I love my Father in Heaven! Elder Lowder

Hey guys! I love being Zone Leader! It’s fun to be able to teach the zone! I love standing in front of a group of people and teach what I know to be true! It’s awesome to be able to serve and help also! I’m happier because my comp is pretty cool and works really hard so we get along very well! His name is Elder QuiƱones and he’s from Aquas Calientes. He’s way cool. So I don’t know if you guys have heard about the fact that they are going to start new missions. I’ve been called to serve in the Mexico City Chalco Mission. President Morales called me and told me the other day, hahaha, it’s crazy! He also told me he wants to put me as assistant to the new mission President O_O but we’ll see what happens, hahaha. So I still cant believe the fact that I have completed 18 months in the mission! I’m happy and as much as I miss you guys I don’t want to go back home, hahaha. I want to stay and keep preaching the word of God! Holy cow! I saw the picture of Brandon. He’s still not as tall as me! No, we can’t extend anymore. I wish, but no. We did good as a Zone this week. We baptized 12 and we 18 with dates this week. It makes me feel good because before I got here this zone baptized like 5 or 6 every week. So I’m way happy that the Lord has helped my companion and I make all that better. My companion and I baptized 3 this week. I have 11 weeks baptizing in a row, haha. I’m excited about that. We have 4 with baptismal dates for this week. I love you guys and Miss you guys! Elder Lowder
