The Last One…

DSCN1836

Well this week was a good one… We were able to finish off the week with the baptism of Hermana Tania Torres Perez. It was awesome to see her be baptized. Like I have said before, she is really timid, but that day she was really happy and it was cool to see. The spirit was strong during the service and after as well. When I went to change after the baptism I said a little prayer before I changed and just thanked my Heavenly Father for all that he has done for me over the last two years of my life while I’ve been here. The spirit was strong and I was able to just talk to him and I really like it!

The volcano exploded today we think because we looked over and there was a ton of smoke. Like a huge mushroom cloud leaving the volcano. We live way far away so nothing happened but it was pretty cool to see! I tried getting some pics but it was too far so they aren’t the best!

Well I didn’t think this day would come so fast! This is officially my last missionary letter… These past two years have cruised by, but in such a short amount of time I have come to learn so much! Just to share a few things with you all I want to finish with my testimony.

I know that my Savior Lives and that he loves me. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t think about what he did for me. It inspires me to be a better person each day. I know that he is there helping me every step of the way. I know that I have a Father in Heaven that watches over me and loves me more that I can understand. I know that the gospel has been restored and that this is the True Church. I have felt it through the Spirit and have seen miracles during these two years. I love the people of Mexico! I will miss them so much!!!!! This gospel has changed me and I’m forever grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ and all of you back at home who have been examples to me.
I will see you all next week! I love you all. And for the last time……..

Well this week was a pretty good one as well. (I feel like I say that every week) But all the weeks here are good, even the bad ones there is something good to find that happened.

This week we headed to Puebla and we had a Zone Conference. It was my last zone conference… That was weird to think about. It was a really good one and I was able to learn a lot. One of the topics that we talked about was Charity. We watched when Elder Wirthlin gave his talk about that and Elder Nelson stood behind him to support him while he talked. It was really powerful.
So this week we have been working with Hermana Tania. She is an investigator that we have and that will be baptized this coming Saturday. We are really excited for her. At first she was really timid when we first met her, but now she is really excited to be baptized and even gave the closing prayer in sacrament meeting.
I was able to learn a lot about the spirit this week and learned how to better follow the promptings that come from him.
Well I hope everyone has a great week and I will see you all soon!

Not always the way we want, but he does listen!

So this week as a good one. This last Saturday we were able to baptize Dalia and Abril! It was such a huge miracle and a spiritual experience. So what happened is Abril had a ton of faith and told her dad that she was going to be baptized on Saturday because she knew it was true and wanted him to be there, but if he wasn’t there she was still going to be baptized. Then a day later the dad gave Dalia permission to be baptized with her sister. Both of their parents were able to attend as well. The spirit was way strong and they both are so happy! It’s because of all the prayers and fasts that happened on their behalf. Maybe it’s not the day that we wanted at first or the way we wanted it to happen but he answers because he listens.

I was able to go back and visit my first area today for P day and it was awesome to be able to see some of the people that I have worked with! I love the people of Mexico!
Well I love you all and I will see you soon!

Haciendo Tortillas (Making Tortillas)

DSCN1789
Well I heard this week was a hard one for a lot of people… I have been thinking a lot about what happened and I’m forever grateful for the gospel, the Plan of Salvation and the atonement of Jesus Christ. As a member of this church I know that what happens here is not the end. I have the assurance of an eternal family and that the Plan of Salvation is real. I know that Jesus suffered for each of us, not only for our sins, but for our pains, both spiritual and physical. There is a talk by Jeffery R. Holland where he is talking to mission presidents and he says, “Presidents, if your missionaries permit it, the atonement will carry them..” The atonement carries us and he walks with us.

Well this week was a good one here. We were able to find a few new investigators and we received a new area where we will be working part of the week. It’s called Huacaltzingo. There are a lot of people there that are ready to receive the gospel and that have baptism dates. Keep praying for Dalia and Abril. They need it so that they can be baptized.
Also I learned how to make tortillas this week so I’ll send a few pictures of that!
Well I love you all! Until next week!

Strep Throat & Broken Windows (Again)

This week was a really good one. It’s weird to think that I’m in my last transfer but it doesn’t feel any different to me. So this week started off really well until Elder Grau got sick. We stayed home all day on Wednesday because he had a fever of 39.1 C. Im not sure what that means in America, I only know that is a lot here so he slept all day and I studied the Book of Mormon and found some cool stuff that I hadn’t noticed before and then I watched The Testaments and 17 Miracles and then ran out of stuff to do… But he is better now.

Dalia and Abril and doing great. We talked with them this week and they actually introduced us to their mom to teach so that was really cool. We talked with them and prayed and fasted and Dalia told us yesterday that she wants to be baptized on Saturday. So make sure that you keep them both in your prayers. Also keep Jack in your prayers. He is one of our investigators and has been in the hospital because his apendix burst.
Well I heard that the USA is in the final for the Copa de Oro (Gold Cup) so that’s sweet! Speaking of soccer we were getting ready to leave the apartment today and we were messing around with the soccer ball because we were going to play and Elder Grau turned into Messi and kicked the ball and broke the window so we had to replace that today. It was only 70 pesos to buy the glass and we got it all fixed up. Thats only like 3 dollars. I love México!
Well I hope you are all doing great and will talk to you soon!

Last Change

Well this week was a good one. The Elders that we live with got a call and they had transfers so my good pal Elder Dominguez had to go to another area so I’ll miss him! Elder Grau and I will be staying together for my last transfer. I will finish his training and then I’ll be headed out. We have a lot of work to do here in Tecamachalco and everything right now is going great.
This last Saturday we had a baptism. We were able to baptize Diana. Her mom is less active but has been coming back to church because of her daughter so that is really cool. We were really excited for that. Dalia and Abril weren’t able to be baptized this week but will be baptized soon. Make sure that you keep them in your prayers, they really need it right now, and it will help them more than you know. For the baptism we had to travel an hour away to the nearest baptismal font so that was a little crazy so be thankful for the church buildings that we are blessed with that are so close to home.

We also did some service this week for a graduación (graduation). It’s a little weird because here they celebrate when you finish Elementary, Jr High and High School. They throw huge parties for that. So we went to the house of an investigator and got rid of the weeds and cut the grass. We cut the grass with a shovel and a machete. I never thought I’d say this but I’m thankful for lawn mowers, as well as little brothers who work the lawn mowers;) hahah
I love you all! Stay safe! Until next week!
