Well i am no longer in guadalajara. I am now in Morelia, Michoacán. My new companions name is Elder Romero. I'll send pictures later on of us. 

Well the last week with Elder Escobar was pretty good. we saw a miracle. J.A. met with us thursday to talk about what had happened. We talked for almsost 2 hours. He called us Friday morning and said that he was ready to be baptised. So we ran to the church and started preparing a baptism. He was baptised friday around 5:30.

Sunday was just a terrible day for me. J.A. didn't get confirmed because he slept in..... We had another baptism in the church for a kid who turned 8 in the ward, and while we were in the service, some guy came in to the church and stole my backpack. All that was in there was my spanish BoM, a little bible, and thats all. but still, seriously!!! AHHH

After that, I helped put away those big circular tables that every church has, and I fell. The table leaned too far forward when I tried opening a door and totally embarrassed myself. Like they say, when it rains,  it pours. The next table I tried putting away broke........ yeah, I leaned it on its side and the whole entire leg just snapped. Yet again, the same people that saw me fall, and helped look for my backpack, saw me break the table. Anyway, just wasn't a lucky day to say the least.

I got on email a little late this week because of transfer that we had but I'll let you know how things go this week in Morelia. I always liked it here in Michoacan, so we'll see if it stays that way. I love you guys, it's good to see Adam's preparations. He looked really happy in the picture with his missionary stuff!

Coming Home Date!

Hi everyone,

So it's official, Elder Hosch will be released November 28, 2013. That happens to be Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., one of my favorite holidays.

It's been a long time (over a year!) since I have updated this blog for him - my blogging skills are really slipping! I also lost the password to the blog and finally figured it out...

He's had an interesting time learning the language and has been sick way more often than he ever is at home. It's been a real challenge; but he's also experience real success and has learned a lot and has grown a lot.

He is currently training a brand new companion and has been enjoying that experience.

I can't explain these pictures! He sends them without explanations, but I'm sure the frog stand on the roof had something to do with being young with a need for some fun and entertainment!
