"Yes, you can do it!"


Hi family!!! 

I am just so happy for all your letters!!! Thanks a bunch!! They are always so helpful!! 
And well this week went well! We were able to help a lot of people who are converts to the Gospel and I love working with them!! They have such a love and gratitude for the Gospel and are not afraid to share it!! And also we have been helping a family that has not gone to church for a while and they came yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really happy. Sometimes we just need to have someone reach out to us and say that 'yes you can do it'! That is probably one of the best phrases you could say to someone. I personally love it!! 
And I know God answers prayer. He is always there and ready to help us. 
And that is about it for this week family!! ! Love you all so much!! And we´ll see ya soon!!

God Answers Prayers!!


Hello family!! 

I really do not have anytime this week!! But I am doing well!!
quick story!! This week we were walking in the street looking for people to teach and well they were not home. And then a young girl passed by and said you are the missionaries!!! We have been waiting for you!! Her family had just moved from a different place and did not know anything about where the church was and they needed some support and then they found us!! I just want you all to know that I know God answers prayers!! Sometimes super fast and others you have to wait for more than a year to receive the answer... but He always answers!! 

I love you all so much!!

Keep walking!!


Hi Family!! 

I really do not have a lot of time. But this week was a lot of learning in my new area. I am here in Tuxtla with Hna Grau. She is 30 years old. Pretty awesome!! She has about 5 months in the mission. And well I am in the biggest city and well we walk up and down one giant hill all day long. I cannot believe how long it is. 20 minutes of walking and you still have not reached the top! And I am on the other side of the city from where I started almost a year ago. How crazy!! The time has gone so fast!! And well we are just working hard to find people who want to hear the Gospel and this week will be a week of searching...and miracles!! And well we are just gonna keep walking!! 

Another thing is that I have been studying about paciencia this week and I learned something new and pretty impactful. Being patient includes handling situations with calmness and hope. And stressing out about things means that we have lost a little did not know that. But it makes sense!! And so I am working more with patience. 

ANd well I am doing well! Thanks to everyone en serio for all the cards and packages!!! So awesome! Love you all! And we will see you in five weeks! adios!

Wow...That was just awesome!


Hi fam!! 

And well this will be really brief because...I have been transfered!! Adios Tapachula!! Ya I am returning to Tuxtla for my last transfer. We will see what adventures are in store! 
And well this week, super fast, we got to meet Elder Oaks! He came to the mission and we had a meeting just for the missionaries. It was super cool!! I shook his hand and he asked me where I was from and that he knew alpine and some taylors. I did not get to talk more because we were in a line. But it was super awesome!! One of the things he talked about was 'begin with the end in mind' which I believe I have talked about before, that the end is the temple and that is the goal for which we are working for with all our investigators. And then Elder Oaks asked us, 'As missionaries, '' the whole place was silent. then he said, ´marriage for time and all eternity.' .... I think the room got even quieter. Not what we expected! But it makes sense. The goal is the temple and that is where we are sealed. So that should be our goal too as missionaries. IT was super great. And he also scolded the elders and said they are only 1/2 a man until they get married. IT was hilarious! 

And well that is all family!! Love you all so much!! Have a fantastic week and Happy Birthday AShley!!! Hope it is just great! Adios!

It Truly is Just Fantastic, the Gospel.


Hello family!!! 

Well this week was good. We have one investigator. He is 13 years old and just a gem!! He really likes the church and he is just so willing to learn and my companion asked if he would like to serve a mission one day and he said yes but that he is a little scared. I would be too if I had just gone to church twice!! But he is great!!! And we are just searching like crazy for people who are going to receive our message. It truly is just fantastic, the gospel. I just love it and I love sharing it! 

I was reading today in 2 nefi 9 and it is just awesome. That thanks to our savior Jesus Christ we do not have to be miserable like the devil. If it weren't for Christ that would happen. But no!! He came!! And He will come again!! and we have the promise of never ending happiness if we accept Him into our lives!! And it is just awesome.' I know He lives!! And I will follow faithfully. My heart I'll give to Him. I know that my Father loves me.!!'
It is just so true!!!! And well, that is about all for this week. 

Oh! we had a mission activity with out presidente and we went to see some ruins and play sports and we watched meet the mormons!!! I loved it and casi casi cried! ha. It was great. Also we had a service project where we cleaned up a park. It was super hot but super good. And well those are the pictures. And also one of my companion and I eating lunch today. Delicious!! Love you all tons!!!
