Busy Week 8/15/16

Thanks mom, I really appreciate it. This week was a really busy. Monday and Tuesday were in a leaders conference, Wednesday we went to a small pueblo called san jose obrero, Thursday I went to villa las rosas to do 4 baptismal interviews, Friday we came back and ran around trying to find as many new investigadores as we could and Saturday we prepared for the baptism and we got a new third member of our companionship, elder fernandez from veracruz!  It was a great week!

A friend recently shared with my a scripture I really enjoyed.

Romans 8
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I know this to be true. Christ is what we live for and what we die for. My companiones and I have been seeing so many miracles these last few week sand we owe it all too him. We have a goal to baptize every week and to teach at least 21 lessones with a member present every week. We know the Lord will help us! Cant wait to see you all :') Love you soo much! Hasta Ver!

Great Week 8/1/16

Part of my letter to president!

I had an amazing experience in my personal studies today. In the morning I listened to a talk by Elder Holland.  I have several and so I can't even remember which one it was but it talked about our chance to improve ourselves and it talked about God and how his source of being happy is his ability to be merciful unto others. It hit me so hard. That is why we live. That's why we're here and that's  why Christ atoned for us. I feel bad because it took me almost two years to really understand why I am here but now I know that I'm here to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man, helping them every step of the way. I then read a little bit of the talk the 4th missionary about how real conversion only comes through a complete surrender of who we are, our desires our thoughts our past and even our future. This is the easiest and ultimately the only fruitful way to live. We have got to lose ourselves to find ourselves. Literally ANYONE can do it and it's the only way to real happiness.

Service, bricks and bees 7/18/16

we moved a whoooooole bunch of dirt off a families property!

A nice old man taught us how to make clay bricks and then gave us fried bees called sisim!

 we made all these.....

 Super tasty actually, like burnt potato chips, but you put a little salt and limon on there and it's awesome!

us in the cyber right now with a future missionary, he says hi!
Don't have my final travels planes but I should get em soon.

I love it, first day we get home I want to go to the temple and do baptisms for the dead with the whole family, maybe Madi could look for some more family names!

Our areas is a little crazy right now. Just a whole lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. We've been giving service everyday this week. Our investigadores that are progressing are Georgina, Antonio, and they child Josue. Also Ha Amanda. They're all very unique people who have the same quality, they all came to church two sundays aho by themselves. Were focusing 100 por 100 on them and giving service and we love it.

Doing Great! 7-11-16

Our zona this Friday!
We spent all day painting a house on Thursday, it went great.

 We went preaching a few days with a young man named Jhony. He's 9 years old but looks like he's 13 and preaches like he's 60. We love him!
 We found a cool new investigador named Olga who's really sick but a really sweet women. She's going through chemo right now but has talked with the missionaries lots before about 25 years ago. She can't go to church because often times she's bedridden but whenever we visit them there is the sweetest spirit in their home. This is their backyard and a pomegranet tree haha
