Howdy y'all,
I hope everyone has had a great week, and has enjoyed this great month of March. Also happy b-day Kendall, big 23, rut roh watch out ladies. Anywho this week was pretty good here in Calvillo, as usual. This week I have been studying a book called Our Heritage a brief history of the church, and it was so good that I read the whole book in one week. There were a lot of things that impressed me, especially the optimism of the early saints. When they headed out on the plains for Utah, they created the hymn Come, Come ye Saints where the last lines say "all is well, all is well" when in fact nothing at all was well. I guess this week I was getting a little down on myself, I feel like in this last month I've been the best missionary that I've been in my whole mission, but at the same time we haven't had as much success as we would have liked, the baptisms haven't been coming.
On Tuesday we went to visit our only investigator Jose that had a baptismal date, for the 8th of April, and he was doing good, but later we visited him on Thursday and there was a tent outside of his house with a few people outside, and the doors were opened so we went inside and there was a coffin with Brother Jose inside, and they were having a viewing service outside. It was so out of the blue and so unexpected, I felt really bad for el Hermano Jose. It was interesting that the last lesson that we taught was the life after this life, and it was just an eye opener that we never know when it's our turn to go.
So after that I was feeling a little sad, for everything that's been happening here, but later I was reading that book. And I realized all is well, all is well here in Calvillo. Perhaps we can't change the Lord's plans and his will, but we can submit ourselves to the will of this Lord like the pioneers, who were constantly being attacked by the picking devil, and persecuters of the church.
You know it's not so important the circumstances of our life but rather the focus of our lives. If we're rooted in the doctrine of Christ, we will always be blessed for out efforts and loyalty to the Lord. And he shall always deliever us from the adversary. So that's pretty much it.
I hope everyone's excited for general conference this week. I was reading something from Elder Ballard and he said that when he had an interview with a radio station the interviewer asked him what was different about the church, and he responded with a question he said if Moses was here on earth would you like to hear what he has to say. The inverviewer responded of course everyone would want to hear. And later Elder Ballard explained that it's the same deal today; a prophet of God has been placed on the earth again. And he has the same power and athourity that Moses had. So I hope that we all listen to God's servent on earth today, when the Prophet speaks the Lord is talking. I hope everyone has an excellent week.
Love-Elder Webb

2nd Epistle

2nd Epistle of Saint Webb to the Calivlencians
1 And it came to pass that in the end of the 1st year of the reign of Elder Webb over the people of Aguascalientes the sun was attacking strongly and the amount of sweat and amount of yellow garments doubled and Elder Webb said unto himself, behold I'm changing from child to man.
2 Yea and Elder Webb said unto the people of Calvillo, behold there's water what impedes ye from being baptized, for behold he that cometh unto the waters of baptism shall be full, and he that endureth to the end shall be found spotless in the last day.
3 Wherefore come unto Christ and be perfected in him, oh beautiful people how have ye let Satan enter into your houses, how could ye let him take hold of your lives? Oh Calvillo, Calvillo, how many times did I want to gather you like the chicken who gathers her chicklets?
4 And it came to pass that as Elder Webb was enjoying some Dorinachos, he thought unto himself, why does the Lord let the devil attack our poor investigators, why does everyone have problems?
5 Thus Elder Baquiax and Elder Webb went to work, filled with the Spirit of God, bursting with the power of God and the very powers of hell shook before them with such force, that brother Jaimes shirt burst from his chest during the lesson.
6 And thus in the month of April, milliones were baptized, and it came to pass that for lack of time there was no more space on the gold plates and Elder Webb concluded his second epistle for the Lord forbid him that he should reveal more marvelous things.
Love y'all  
Have a great week

Hello y'all
This week was pretty intense lemme tell you. Hmm let me check what we did. I guess I'll give you the day by day, play by play. So on Monday were the exciting transfers. Elder Asencios and I parted ways after one short transfer together. Elder Asencios was another great companion, he'll be missed. So on Monday we headed on over to la central and there were about 40 missionaries in the bus station, I don't know what Presidente is doing but lately everyone has had transfers. Later at like 1 me and Elder Asencios (because Elder Asencios is training too) headed over to Jesus Maria and all the new missionaries showed up. Poor saps. I remember the first day in the mission... what a mess. This time there were like 6 Americanos and they had no idea what was going on. Luckily this time the ap's translated it. Then on Thursday it was the same deal and we headed back to Calvillo at like 6.
Then on Wednesday was the all exciting District Meeting, it was pretty good if I do say so myself, heh heh. Then on Thursday was the first day of Elder Baquiax. He's a great missionary. Elder Baquiax is from Guatemala like Elder Arroyo and Elder Castillo. Things have been going great. Usually the missionaries have a lot of problems and challenges their first week, but as of now, all is well.
Later on Friday we had a pretty cool experience. We were looking for an old investigator, Lucia, and when we arrived she was there waiting and had been praying so that the missionaries would visit her again, it was pretty cool. We'll see what happens. On Saturday we headed out to hilly billy town "San Tadeo" about 30 minutes from Calvillo because we have an investigator named Rogelio, who has been attending church. All in all, I'd say the week was pretty good. Welp, the time ran out again, but I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
Lots of love-
Elder Webb

Howdy y'all-
This will be snappy, but you might be wondering why I'm writing y'all on Tuesday. We'll get to that. So this week was mas o menos. From Monday until Wednesday my companion was sick so we didn't do much.
Later on Friday we had the exciting meeting with President Nelson. I'm just gonna say it, it was a mess. When we showed up to the reunion President Piper and Elder Valenzuala entered and told us Presidnet Nelson's flight was delayed and that we should all pray so that he would make it, but he never showed up. It was kind of sad. The meeting was in Zacatecas (my old area) so after the meeting all of Aguascalientes headed back home, but on the way out the bus got stuck in the road. Literally the back of the bus was like 6 inches of the road, so we waited on the side of the road and after like 3 or 4 hours the bus got unstuck. But after the police wanted money for the damage that the bus did to the ground and later the bus company and everything. So we headed on over to the hotel where presidente was staying and he ordered another bus, and at that point it was 1 in the morning and everyone was dying of hunger, so presidente ordered food for the whole mission and we returned back in Aguas at like 4 in the morning and everyone in Aguas slept in the house of the ap's. and we returned back to Calvillo the next day at like 12. What a mess. but even without President Nelson the meeting was pretty good and I learned some new things.
Yesterday and today were pretty exciting as well. We did indeed have transfers. My new companion is from Guatemala, and he has 2 days in the mission. We had a traning sesh that last 2 days and now we are here in Calvillo, pretty exciting. I'm really excited to train a new missionary. I think it will be a great learning experience. I hope everyone has a terrific week
lots of love- Elder Webb
