The Gospel Makes Us Super Happy!


Well hello there my dear fam!!!

I am really good!! ANd I am glad you are all doing well too! This week was better and we could find a lot of people that are wanting to hear our message so that was good. We are searching like crazy for escogidos. And we are just enjoying the time because I do not have a lot of time left! Ah! It kind of scares me to think that I will be home in 8 WEEKS!!
And something that I learned today that I really liked that I wrote in my study journal about 9 months ago. Quote, ´this is the way that life is meant to be lived - with the hand of God in all we do.´ If we just keep the commandments we will recieve all that the Father hath one day and the most richest and amazing blessings that will just give us the greatest joy and we cannot keep it all in! That is why we share the Gospel - because it makes us super happy!
I just love you all so much!!! ! I hope you all have such a fantastic week! And I will see you later!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Valentines...

He loves us so immensely



I do not have a lot of time because I had to play a little bit of catch up. And well this week was actually a little difficult but I learned more about the Savior and His love for us and I am just really grateful for that. Even though He was perfect it still hurt Him when people rejected Him and when He suffered also. I cannot believe how He was able to suffer so much pain. But He did it because He loves us so immensely. We still cannot understand how great His love is.
Well I gotta go!! 

Love you all so much!!!

Just Keep Walking!


Hi family!!! 

I am writing earlier today because we are going to go to Tuxtla again for a super consejo!!!! All the missionaries that are leaders are gonna go and it should be really awesome. I expect to learn a lot and also have some ideas that will help us become better leaders and help the missionaries that we are charge of more.
Well this week was good. The truth is that we walked a lot. And that is because a lot of people did not have time to receive us in their homes this week or they did not want to. And guess what! It´s okay!! I made up a song, I do not really remember it very well to tell you it but it ended with ´we´ll just keep walking!¨ and well this really is a truth for life. That sometimes things are not going to go as planned and we do not understand why but it is okay. We just keep walking forward and have faith in Christ that all will be well. So my family!! Just keep walking! The promises of the Lord are real and some will come soon and some won´t, but they will come!

And well, I am doing good. I really just like being a missionary. The Gospel has become so clear and so real to me and it just makes me grateful. I love you all so much!!! And I hope this week is just fantastic!!! See ya later!!!

What a wonderful promise!!


Well Hello my family!!!

I do not know if I told you all but we had transfers last week and my new companion is pretty awesome! She is from Mexico. She is hilarious and we spend most of the day laughing. This week was busy with searching for new people who want to hear the Gospel and it is amazing how the Lord has put people in our paths that want to know about the gospel. We just always have to keep searching. And it is kind of funny because lots of people this week were shocked that i could speak spanish and I was like Clearly! I am now mexican because the sun has tanned me up pretty good. 
Well a funny story for this week that happened yesterday. We went to visit a member family and when we got to her house she told us to wait for a second while they restrained their dog so that it would not bug us and while we were waiting outside the door I said to the sister member ´nos gusta comer´ which means ´we like to eat´ when i was trying to say that her dog would like to eat us. And then I realized what I said and said o wait, ´su perro nos gusta comer´ which means ´we like to eat your dog´ and then my companion just started laughing. It was hilarious! And then I gave up trying to explain and just laughed. Sometime spanish justs like to leave. And everytime I think about it I just start laughing. too funny!!
I really love reading the scriptures and I am 1 nefi and it is so important the example that nefi gives us to always ask about revelation that our leaders of the church receive. We can truly know for ourselves and receive personal revelation if we seek diligently. What a wonderful promise!! I know that it is true.

Well I love you so much and I have to go!! Have a fantastic week!!! Adios!

Hello fam!! 
Well this week was a little crazy. Elder Valenzuela of the seventy came and taught us. It was really good. He helped us see a lot where we can be better. I liked it because it helped me reflect on the work I am doing and how can I do better. 
Also, this week we went to Tuxtla for a training meeting for the missionaries who are leaders in the mission (it is a 7 hour bus ride to tuxtla) and we left early so we could go to the temple. And it was FANTASTIC!!!! It had been over a year since I had gone to the temple and I was just happy as a clam. I got to do baptisms for ancestors of my district leader and I helped hna avendaƱo, my companion with her Grandma! I got to do the endowment session for her Grandma and she, my companion, did it for her great grandma. How cool is that!! It really was such a neat experience. And I really had missed the temple. 
And also I was reading today in 1 Nefi 5 and did you know that Lehi and Nefi di there family history too!! They found out that they were related to Joseph who was sold into egypt. Que padre! 
And well, that is about all for this week. Oh! We had transfers. I am still here, but hna avendaƱo ya finished her mission. She left today and it was really sad. I am going to miss her. And so I am waiting for my new companion still. But it made me a little shocked because in about 12 1/2 weeks I will be heading home too......scary!! There is a lot to be done! Well I gotta go. but I love you tons family!! 

I hope you have a fantastic week!
