Do Whatever you Can to Have the Spirit with you Always!


Thank you so much for the package!! It was awesome!!!! I am going to
ration it so i have some for a while!!!!! I have already opened the
peanut butter and had peanut butter and oreos... haha I almost died,
for real. hahahah  Haha how was the cabin? Was the whole family up
there?  Oh I don't know if I have lost weight, I think I have lost a
bit. don't know how though!!  sorry this computer is awful and I  don't
have a ton of time!!!  Yea elder wells knows Kiersten. hahaha too
funny! Um this week was really good!!!! We are finding a ton of
investigators right now and setting a lot of baptismal dates with a
lot of people!! This Aaugust should be a big month Elder Wells and I have
a lot of high goals!!! We are really trying to follow the spirit
more fully!! It really is something awesome when we follow the spirit
and it will literally tell us all things that we should say and do!!!
I love that feeling and know that is essential to have as a
missionary, and truthfully for everyone!!! Do whatever you can to have
the spirit with you always!!! Well I have to go I am really sorry that
is a short letter hopefully next week will better!!!!!  Hopefully the
pictures will make up for the lack of letter! Oh but before I forget
we did this trick called tea of tobacco where you put the contents of
a cigarette in water and then boil it and then the person that is
trying to stop smoking has to drink it. We did this and our
investigator threw up a lot. haha now he has no desire to smoke!!! Oh
also, this week I had to teach gospel principles, in Spanish!!1 Hahaha
it is definitely a miracle that I can do that!! The lord is blessing
me so much and I am so grateful for that!!! If at times you feel like
you are lacking a few blessings remember you need to be more
obedient!!! Thank you so much for all the love and Support!!

Love you all,

6 month mark. Burning the tie tradition.
 Elder Kraymer Todd Eppich

Share the gospel with everyone it will change their lives forever!!!!

The Atonement

July 18, 2012


Sorry I am not going to be able to write a long letter again this week
because I have been trying to write a short letter to every member of
the family. If you want maybe you could combine them and put them
together in the blog or then you can alll read them. Everything is
going really well for me here in LA PERLITA! I now know the area
really well and just in time because my companion is leaving today,
and I dont know who is going to be my new companion yet but I will
have to direct the area!! That will be crazy! Lol
   This past week I have really been focusing on becoming more like
our Savior Jesus Christ. I become more and more grateful for him and
all he has done as he has done so much for me and for all the world!
It is crazy to think about the Atonement and all it does for all of
us!! He has paid the price for all and it is sad to think that not all
are willing to take it and use it!! I love being able to testifiy of
the Atonement! Well i have to go! Love YALL

Love, Elder Eppich

doing really well!! I am so stoked about the wedding!!
Haha It sounds like the wedding is a lot sooner then I thought!!!! I
won´t be able to email till next Wednesday because we have transfers

myself growing closer and closer to the Lord and the spirit and it is
helping so much! I had intercambios this week with a priest for three
days and I was able to lead our area without a problem!! Love all of
you, sorry for the short letter!! Love, Elder Kraymer Eppich

A Week Full of Firsts


This week was full of a lot of firsts lol! I cut my companion's hair!
Haha don´t ask for pictures it doesn't look too good, I had to use only
scissors or however you spell it. lol he started to kind of just trim
it then messed up and was like ¨"Elder, Ayudame" haha so I had to go
and cut the rest, the front looks good but the back looks like a
lawnmower had a broken blade lol but he cant see the back so we are
all good!!! I think I am going to buy a hair cutting thing here they
aren't super expensive and would definitely save me some money! I will
practice on other elders before I cut my own hair! Haha
Then the other first was brownies! I made brownies on my own from
scratch without a recipe! Hahahaha surprisingly they tasted really
good, the only thing was it was more like a cake because I used a
little too much flour, and I made them last night and they turned out a
whole lot better!!! Haha
Then the other thing I made was spaghetti with a white sauce. I am
not going to lie it was pretty good! I was impressed and I am sure you
all would be too! However, don't expect it when I get home because I
think I am being blessed lol.
Well everyone has been asking me about the food so I'll talk about
that, lol. I love the food down here!! We eat spaghetti probably 2 or
3 times a week. It is different but it is so good, they put meat in
with the sauce and everything, it is super good! Then we have pizza
every once and a while. And we have this stuff called millanesa, it is
awesome! It is like chicken patties and sometimes they use carne, or
cow meat instead and then chicken fry it. They also have awesome
bread! They have bakeries everywhere and they sell like 1 kilo for 5
pesos so that is about 2 lbs for a dollar or so, and the bread is
french style. It is seriously so good! Um they drink a ton of pop and
especially coca cola but missionaries cant drink that so we have a lot
of tang! I haven't been sick from anything yet, except I think I have
drank some water that we didn't know wasn't filtered, we have to boil or
use bleach with anything we drink, so i have had an upset stomach
once. But i am doing great!
This week was a little tough with our investigators.. A lot of them
fell through on their commitments and didn't come to church on Sunday.
(dad we have a ward, there is about 80 people on average) (Haha its
funny everyone here likes American music but don´t understand it, lol
so I explain what it means. Right now in the cyber or Internet cafe
they have Katie perry playing.. Hahahahe)
This week I really had a change of view of these people here. All
the sudden I just had a feeling after someone rejected us, "do you
not realize what we have to offer you? I am trying to help you ?" It
really is difficult when they reject you, not because you don´t get to
teach or the things missionaries want to do,but it is because you
realize what they are missing out on, and we may be their only chance
on having eternal families. I think this change that is happening in
me is something that will make me a better missionary.
However, all the tough times are all worth it when you can feel the
spirit testify to people that your words are true. And you know that
you are the answer to their prayers!!
Something that i have learned this week is that Satan will kick ya
and kick ya before something really important happens. So whenever you
are feeling down and are wondering why, realize it is because our
Savior has something important planned for you very soon, and Satan
doesn't want that to come to pass! When we can realize that it helps so much!!
Thanks for everything! Love ya have a great week!
