WEEK 64


Surprise Baptism

Hello 
We had a leadership trianing this last week and that was good. Finally had this training with 9 months as a district leader. 

We had divisions this week and Elder Lloyd, my comp in the ccm, came to my area with me. It was pretty cool being together again teaching after a little more than a year. We had some good lessons. 

We ended up having a baptism this week. Her name is Maira Xochilquetalli Trejo Chable. She has been an investigator for awhile now but she finally took this decision. She was planned to be baptized but she was about to leave out of the state and so we baptized her this week. She was super stoked. 

Love and miss all of you! 
Sea feliz :)

WEEK 63


 ¡Día de Muerto!





Hola Fam
So Día de Muerto was alright. We had to return to the house early that day. Some people did give us candy tho! We also ate some pan de muerto and it was pretty really good. 

This week we put about 6 baptismal dates so that is super awesome. It really is a spiritual experience every time some one decides to take this step in their lives. 

We contacted a guy in the street the other day and it was perfect timing! Almost all his family are members but he never wanted to listen to the missionaries but he told us that in these past 2 weeks he has aumented the faith in God and that he feels the need to change his life. Also his grandsons were talking to him outside their house about what they learned in church and in that very moment we contacted him. He was telling us over and over how he knows that God has sent us to him in this moment in his life and that he will do whatever it takes to be on the right path. This was a really good experience. Once again I have seen that God guides us to the people that are prepared for the Gospel. 

This Sunday Fernando our recent convert received the priesthood! 

Love and miss you guys! 
Sea mormon sea feliz :)

WEEK 62


Happy Halloween!

Hola,

So I finally bought a camera! I bought it in a pawn shop haha. but everything there is pretty cheap. I bought this camera for 21 dollars or 385 pesos. (Yes I broke my other one a couple weeks ago...oops)

We had a lesson with a family that have been investigators for awhile and we had a lesson about plans and goals. Little different of what we do but it was a really good lesson. Think about the goals you have and come up with a plan to achieve it. Also more than anything think about Gods goal that he has for us and if we are following this plan. 

I had to give a district class this week like always but one of the topics is, What's better, the pain of discipline or of repentance? Discipline is necessary in order to improve and learn but we need to have also the obedience and diligence to the commandments of God. We will come to know that discipline is better than the pain of repentance. 

We were contacting in an area where we usaully do not contact and we knocked on this random door and it ended up being some inactive members and they were super excited to see us and they are wanting to return to the church. Crazy how God puts you in the right places in the right time. 

Love and miss all of you!! 
Sea feliz :)

WEEK 61


Happy Birthday Grandma!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like hunting season was a success this year! 

Feliz cumpleaños a la mejor abuela en el mundo! 

This was a pretty good week. We had a lesson with this elderly couple that are SUPER catholic haha. He just recently got his leg amputated and is in a wheel chair. This was a pretty interesting lesson because he can't listen very well. So legit through the whole lesson I was yelling haha it was super weird. He his not interested at all but his wife is super interested so we will see how that turns out. 

We had a lesson with the recent convert Beatriz and she invited her friend to listen to us so that is pretty cool how she has this desire to share the gospel. 

We had a family home evening with a family of members and also a family that they are not all members. We watched the restoration of the gospel and some activities. It was really good and the spirit was strong. You guys should watch that. We also ate some s´mores after. (first s´mores that I have had in Mexico) they were good. 

We had a lesson with recent convert Fernando and with another member to prepare him to receive the priesthood and he is excited. 

We also did contact a lot this week! It was good. It is really a neat thing to see how God puts people in your path. 

Love and miss all of you guys!! 
read the BOOK OF MORMON and go to church.. again ;)

WEEK 60


Feliz cumpleaños a Colton!

Hola Familia! 

So we had changes this week. I am staying in the same area of pastora 2 and I am still with Elder Headrick. I am also still a district leader. So everything the same. 

This week has been pretty calm. We set a baptismal date for the 11 of Nov. This week I have noticed that a sincere prayer and the desire to change really works. The investigators are really starting to make a difference in their lives. Fernando that just got baptized is preparing to receive the Priesthood. 

In this change some good buddies have finished their missions. Also, My generacion is the oldest gringos in the mission now so that is weird.

Love and miss all of you.

WEEK 59


Bautismo de Fernando

Hola

We had our zone conference this week and it was pretty good. They talked a lot on how we can improve our teaching skills and I have been applying it to my mission and I can see a difference. 

This last week was my birthday and it is super weird saying that I am 20. We ate tacos and also something kinda funny is that some members invited us over to get a reference at their house. But what we didn't know is that they were having a birthday party for their 10 year old daughter haha. So I mentioned that it was my b day also and so they sang to me haha. So I guess you could say that I crashed a b day party that wasn't even mine haha. 

Fernando was baptized this satuday!! He was pretty much a golden investigator. It was a good experience. 

I wish I could be home for this time of year of hunting and football haha but congrats to Jake!! 

Love and miss you all. 

Sea Feliz :)

WEEK 58


Conferencia General

Hey fam! sounds like everyone has a a pretty good week! 

So to start off, my comp and I have been starting to work in a different section a little in our area. We were walking down a street and we passed a car when all of a sudden I heard growling and then this dog came out barking. This Happens often so we just kept going. When we got quite a ways away this dog searched for us with 2 other dogs and wanted to kill us! We were kinda trapped because there were cars on one side and dogs on the other. We finally crossed the street and ran away. 

General Conference was amazing!! I expect you guys watched it. 

After, we had a lesson with a mother and daughter and their story is crazy. They are living in the city because her daughter has to have treatment for cancer and so they have little money. she lives in Oaxaca which is where there were 2 big earthquakes and all of her family lives their including her 2 year old daughter. Even with all of these things in her life she has a lot of faith and a good attitude. 

Im turning 20 this week!!! pretty crazy!!  and thanks for all the birthday wishes!
