Hey everybody! This week was a pretty fantastic week!!!

Elders Z, Nicoll, and Greenwood at Mall in Chihuahua

Highlights include:

- Confirmation of Javier
Elders Nicoll & Greenwood (??)

- Francisco Macias (recent convert) blessed the Sacrament


- Miracle of the Week: While we were out knocking doors, we knocked on a particular door and no one was home. 

THEN, the elderly neighbor lady peeked her head around the corner from her house and said, "Hey, nobody's home." We started to talk to her a little bit and, as it turns out, THIS LADY¨S SISTER HAD JUST GOTTEN BAPTIZED INTO OUR CHURCH like a couple weeks ago. This lady that found us (named Elena) told us that she was actually going to ask her sister if she could go to church with her this Sunday! AND, her grandma was a member and they did tons of family home evenings when she was younger! Talk about miracles! She is a gift from heaven.

Impressive Face Pancake

Miracles are out there!

Go Get 'Em!

Good Times

(Sent 6-19-17)

Heyo! What's up everybody!

Life is moving here in the mission. A dear friend named Javier just got baptized this last Friday. He is really a special person. We didn't find him. He just showed up to the church one day. He is a special soul.

Years ago, he was an atheist. Then, he started to believe in God again and wanted to find His true church. And now, the rest will be history. :)

I completed 22 official months in the mission today. The time has gone by too fast. But, just too fast. Everything feels like a dream sometimes. But here I am, literally working to help others receive salvation and eternal life. It is still an honor.

Love being a missionary!
And I love you all!

Pure Poetry

Happy Summer everybody!

TRIPITAS (Cow Intestines)
Cut up to put into TACOS - YUM! 

Headed to Chihuahua to have dinner with President Montoya

The sun is high and the heat is dry.
It is hot, I cannot lie.
But we shall continue by and by.

Goals of Excellence Celebration
This week was a great week. We are helping one special investigator get ready for his baptism here this next week. He is an incredibly special young guy, and he has changed a lot.

We also got to go to Chihuahua and have dinner with president for completing the Goals of Excellence! That was a great experience and it was really fun to be with president and a bunch of other missionaries. Just like old times, hahaha!

Elder Greenwood's Award - COOL!

All is well here in the missionary field. We see the hand of the Lord in our lives constantly and that is what brings us our joy. Just like it says in my favorite scripture, Doctrine & Covenants 123:17:

Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.

Love you all!
Have a great week!

Classic Missionary Week

What is up everyone!

Elder Greenwood's District +
Elders Viscaya (former comp) and Greenwood

All is well here in Cuauhtemoc. Life is moving really, really quickly. Another week has just blown by.

We are working hard in the summer time! It is nice and sunny everyday, but we hear that the rainy season is coming! Hahaha, Hoping and Praying.

This week was had the opportunity to find quite a few new people who went to church years ago with other missionaries and are now interested again in going.

We were also talking with a certain investigator named Javier. He has been talking with us for a couple weeks now. We talked to him about the Restoration and he just loved it. He used to be Atheist, but a couple of years ago, he changed his life completely and now he has been feeling like Joseph Smith-- looking for the Truth and not knowing where to find it.

Pains of playing goalie!

Normally we teach that lesson first, but he had other needs, and now he has been prepared for that wonderful lesson that only our church teaches that will help him change his life even more. I am super excited for him! He is going to make a great member, and maybe missionary. :)

Love being a missionary and Helping others.
Have a great week everyone!

 With Love,
Your friend in Mexico
