One Week More

(Sent 7-24-17)

Hey everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Here we are. Just about to start the last week of the 2 best years for my life.

It has been an unforgettable ride. And like my swim coach always taught me, we finish hard to the end. :)

This week was great. We got to help a young lady named Alejandra enter the waters of baptism. That was a lot of fun.

Don't even know...preparing for a natural disaster?

We also got to hear a special training meeting from our mission president who received instruction from 2 apostles. I learned a lot there about ways that I can improve as a missionary and after the mission. There are so many things still to be learned. It's gonna be great! :)

Miracles are in the Air :)

(Sent 7-17-17)

What is up my dear friends and Family?

Double Zone Conference

The rains came down and the floods came up!

All is well here in Cuauhtemoc! Nice and rainy every day.

Just got to witness the baptism of Leticia Vasquez. She was a miracle from the start. She got married to a member like 3 months ago and, due to the calling of that member, we didn't ever see them in our branch. BUT! They showed up and asked us to teach her the Gospel.

They started reading the Book of Mormon together, and you could see the change of light within Sister Vasquez. She is incredible. As she gained more light, she understood more things about her Savior. That was an awesome thing to see. And her husband got to baptize her. It was beautiful. :)

Miracles are in the air.

Love you all! Have a great week of miracles!

Buenas Tardes!

4th of July Celebration - Subway, Rootbeer, Chips, Watermelon

 This week was a great week full of stuff! We were visited by our mission president and learned how to become more consecrated missionaries. We also saw many miracles in our week.

The Mendoza Family - Love them!
As it turns out, the father of the father of a family that just got baptized in another branch is an old investigator of ours! This father has noticed the big change in his son that comes from living the gospel and now he is down once again to listen to us! We called him up Saturday night and he showed up to church by himself Sunday morning! Crazy!

AND, we contacted a lady this week who seemed pretty cool. We set up an appointment, showed up for that appointment, and she wasn't home. We called the number she gave us and it said that the number had been changed. So, we forgot about her.

Family Home Evening Activity

Later on that day, SHE CALLED US from another number. We set up another appointment for Saturday. The problem was that that Saturday we got stuck and had to help another lady, who will be getting baptized this week, to move houses. So, we couldn't go with this lady who I'm talking about. Her name is Maria de Jesus. So, I called her afterwards and told her sorry, and she said "don't worry about it, oh, and I still want to go to church with you all tomorrow. At what time is your church?"

Bus Station

She showed up by herself the next day AND she stayed for the other classes after Sacrament Meeting. We started to talk about the blessings that we had had this last week as a class in Gospel Principles. She shared her blessing of the week and started crying, saying that she just had felt so much darkness in her life, and then 2 young men knocked on her door, and that now she was there in church feeling true peace.

The gospel is true. There is no better feeling than being an instrument in the Lord's hands.

Love you all! Have a great week!

Going Strong!

Aitele todos mis hermanos de la fe!

Trust Activity

This week was yet another great week in the mission. Lots of heat, still learning new things.

A special thing that happened to us this week was when we were out knocking doors (there was no one to talk to in the street so we figured that they must be in their houses), we were not having any success. The people we found were less than interested. BUT WE KEPT GOING!

Strength & Endurance

Just like President Uchtdorf said in a talk not too long ago that is called FOURTH FLOOR LAST DOOR, we kept going. And we ended up finding several houses in a row that told us how confused they were with so many churches on this earth. BEAUTIFUL!


And another lady who told us that her father had just passed away. PLAN OF SALVATION! The Lord has prepared and is preparing people to hear the gospel. Now it is our job to find them and help them. And that we will!

Love you all,
Have a great week!
