July 13th

My week has been good. Sorry I havent written that much, Im super busy. We had some sad news that we werent going to be able to baptise the girl who was ready to be baptised this week because her mom changed her mind so that was rough. we´re going to meet with the mom tonight. Tell mom and Jace congrats about their marathon, the pictures look great. I didnt know Jace was such a runner! Sounds like youre super busy! Did you stay the night in Star Valley? And did you get to see where they are going to build the temple? The past few days Ive been sick like dad, I have a cold. Yesterday at lunch the food was a little bit more spicy than normal and it cleared me up for like an hour but then it came back. Thats pretty cool about Anna{s blessing. She told me that shes going to serve a mission and Im pretty excited about that, Sister missionaries are the best. 
Im so excited for everything that is coming up with the temple. The temple open house will be from Aug 15 to Sept 11 which is a ton of time, President says that from past open houses and other open houses in Mexico they are expecting thousands of people to visit and sense the temple is in our mission probably 60% will be from our mission, references everyday. Then the cultural celebration and dedication and the prophet is going to come! Then the next day (monday) the temple is going to open especially for missionaries sense it is our pday and we get to go, the very first ones that get to attend! Im so excited! 
We have an investigator that is super cool and he has the most difficult name, Xicontencatl (pronounced Shicontecatl) He has 5 kids which is a lot for people from the city. He is so interested he takes notes during the lessons and has questions about every single thing, for this reason it will take a while to teach him everything but Elder Sumano says he{ll be the next bishop. haha. The only thing is his wife is listening to the Jehovas Witnesses missionaries which makes it a little difficult but we havent met her yet so hopefully she{ll change her mind about them. There are a ton of Jehovas Witnesses here (Testigos de Jehova). Theres also a lot of catholics of course, I never realized in Idaho but we always learned that the Catholic Church is the great and abomanable church and I always thought well they believe in God and the Bible they cant be that bad but they are. The sad thing is is that the members dont know. They break so many laws in the Bible its like they dont even read it. They worship the Virgin Guadalupe or Maria because she is the mother of God is what they say and there are statues of her everywhere and so many other things its so crazy. 
Well sorry my past letters have been bad Ill try to be better. Love you lots and have a good week!
Elder Inskeep
