Feliz Ano Nuevo!!!!!

Well!  I'm here in Kingsburg with Elder Vargas my new companion/trainee!  Ha, he's not really my trainee!  He knows the area super good and he's got a bunch of member trust and is fluent in Spanish!  That only leaves me to train him on how to teach and how to be exactly obedient!  Ha, training Elder Vargas.  He's basically training me since I'm new to the area and still learning Spanish!  It's awesome though!  I don't have some bum missionary who is trunky and vegetating to the end!  Elder Vargas wants to work and that is just fine with me!  We are going to baptize the multitudes here in Kingsburg!

Clarification.  We will baptize multitudes in Parlier!  Kingsburg is a bunch of white people that aren't ready for the goodness of the gospel and Parlier is the gold at the end of the rainbow!  The light at the end of the tunnel!  The diamond in the rough!  There are so many people there ready to listen to the gospel!  It's a small town of all of the field workers!  They all live humble lives, but they are super ready to receive the fullness of the gospel in their lives!  Most of our work is there so we are looking for an apartment out there so we can move out there and live amongst the beleivers!  Haha don't get me wrong Kingsburg is good and there are people ready to hear the gospel here too so we spend 2 days a week there.  Parlier is where it is at though!!  

Looks like my area is a bunch of fields.  Right now it just looks like a bunch of dead wood all stood up in rows cause it's been so cold, but I'm sure come spring it's gonna be booming!  Can't wait!

Investigators!  We have around 16 right now!  AWESOME!  Modesto kinda struggled with having investigators, but this area is boooooming!  It's awesome!  Ha and 14 of them are in Parlier!  That place will be translated by the time me and Elder Vargas are finished with it!  Parlier!!!  Anyways, 2 we are focusing on are Brianda and Angel.  Brianda has Muscular Dystrophy and is dying.  It's really sad but she is super strong!  It's amazing! She's enjoying every single moment she has left and she says she is ready for baptism, but is shy about being dunked in the water because more than 1 person will have to do the baptism.  So we are working on that.  She'll yield to the enticing of the spirit!  Angel is the son of a less active member!  He's always hated the fact that he was baptized as a baby. He never has felt like that is something that you should do and so when the missionaries stopped by to teach his dad the less active, he asked them about that and he liked what he heard and has been taking the lessons ever since!  Last night, we went over and taught him.  What's awesome is he invited his girlfriend over to listen in too!  We taught the plan of salvation and challenged both to baptism for the 25th of this month!  Angel said he's wanted that for a while now and that it's about time we asked!  That is the greatest answer to a baptismal challenge I've had yet!  His girlfriend said that she would like to keep learning before she makes a decision, so we told her we'd be happy to oblige!!  The work is AWESOME and is moving forward every second of every day!

Hey.  I love you all.  Jesus Christ loves you all.  Heavenly Father loves you all.  Remember that always!  No matter what.  NO MATTER WHAT..... they will always love you and you always have them to turn to for strength, peace, love, and hope!

Happy New Year!

Love yall!

Elder Frame
