21 de mayo

dear fam,

this week wasnt all that great. we didnt really have too much success. a lot of appointments fell thru and we couldnt find people we had on the lists. so we just had to rebound on contacting. i hate contacting. but here where we dont really recieve references from members its the only thing we gotta do! practically...actually starting next saturday we are gonna put a little puesto in the tianguis. tianguis is like a big market that people put in the streets. its a good way to find people to teach. lots of missionaries have had success doing it.

i have a LOT of work to do in this area. i feel like we could really have success in this area, but we gotta work super hard. we need to find the people that are ready and waiting for us. we need a lot of help and guidance from the Spirit to be able to have this success that we want. we really need to be the instruments in the Lords hands to be able to do His work.

Alma 26: 3-4
3 Behold, I answer for you; for our brethren, the Lamanites, were in darkness, yea, even in the darkest abyss, but behold, how amany of them are brought to behold the marvelous light of God! And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made binstruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work.

4 Behold, athousands of them do rejoice, and have been brought into the fold of God.
well, i dont really have that much time to talk. we have to go to the meeting soon. but i hope everyone is doing well and choosing the right.

well this week was just like any other... work, work, and more work. watching people start to understand the gospel and start to understand their place in the Plan of Salvation. its neat-o.
yesterday we had a baptism! it was pretty cool. and spiritual. the room was full of people and the spirit was just strong! its always strong when someone makes a sacred covenant with God like with baptism... his name is Alexis. hes like 17 years old, but was super content and he brought one of his friends to church and now were about to start teaching him and also the mom of Alexis! hopefully things work out and we can get everything going and start having more success. we gotta look for the chosen people!
it was good talking to the family yesterday. minus lauren and danny and cami.... maybe you guys should email me... jaja :)
well, time passes by really fast and well i gotta get to work and give it my all before its too late. besides, i have a meeting to get to...
love you!

well this was my first week in my new area in the branch Campestre, stake Paraiso with my new comp Elder Aguirre. 

theres a LOT of hills and its a really big area and well theres a LOT of work to do. the people are more poor here and also a little more receptive.  i hope to have a lot of success in this area. i dont think it will be my last area, but i think ill be here till at least september... then finish out in another area. the branch is actually big enough to be a ward, but it has a lot of sisters and needs more brethren and priesthood. but theres some goood members. at church i saw a lot of people i knew from the other ward which was my 3rd area, Ixtla. members, my converts, and a fam that we reactivated. it was really cool to see all of them and their smiles when they saw me. it made me feel loved, and here in the mission its a great feeling...

at church yesterday some recent convert girls of like 10 and 11 years old said to investigators in their testimonies "i hope you stay here and never leave and i know you will never leave because i know you feel the spirit and well you should get baptized because this place is great! youll never regret it!"  and everyone was like laughing and well it was a neat experience to see that. it was a woman with a son and a daughter, and well they said they liked it and are gonna come next week and go to the ward activities on wednesdays. they were a cool blessing from the Lord.

well i hope everyone is being good and choosing the right and GOING TO CHURCH like they know they should...

love you,
