e-mail of November 8

Dear Dad and Mom,
So these past few weeks have been going pretty good other than we haven't been having any baptisms. We have two people ready to be baptized they have already been interviewed and the one passed but the other has to wait for President to interview her because she had a problem with one of the questions. So we have just been helping the one he was the one that told us that he wanted to be baptized and everything and the night before his interview his sister talked him into rethinking and learning more about the church before he gets baptized so that set us back a little bit. We only have to teach our investigators the first lesson they have to know about Joseph Smith and have to pray and have a desire to be baptized. Then we teach them the word of wisdom, the law of chastity, the law of tithing, and the sabbath day and that is basically all that they need to know to be baptized. We have been teaching both of them too about the Book of Mormon and they are reading it, we leave them a chapter or some passages for them to read and then the next time we talk with them about what they read and answer any questions that they may have had about it. Deusa is really loving the Book of Mormon and yesterday when we passed by her house to take her to church, she also invited her boyfriend to go and they went together. It was fast Sunday as you all know and alot of the members were bearing their testimonies about the Book of Mormon and her boyfriend during sacrament leaned over and asked us what it was and we gave him a copy and Deusa explained to him about the book it was awesome. We also have another investigator a man called Rober and he has been reading it and our search for happiness and we havent had a chance to talk with him for about 4 days because he is travelling but hopefully we can catch him at home this week. Our new house is wonderful it is big and has lots of space and its just amazing I love it. We got settled in this past week completely and now its close to the end of the transfer and I might be leaving. As for time change they dont have that here I think that its because we are so close to the equator that it doesn't effect us. I still haven't got my birthday package but I will call the Elders at the mission office and see if they can go to the post office and maybe its there. I don't really have much else to tell you other than I really miss you all and I love you all very much thanks for the support and love.
Love your son,
Elder Crittenden
