12 December 2016

Well hello everyone. I hope you are all good and happy and full of joy. I love you all so much and I am praying for you guys everyday. This week was awesome and so fun. My new companion is Elder Salazar and he is so awesome! We have a lot of fun together and he likes to sing too, so we  are always singing haha! We love to sing the Christmas hymns!

So I love you all so much. This week has been very interesting. We were able to find 10 new investigators this week. We are working so hard to find and baptize. We were able to work with the members a lot and find more people to teach. I love this work so much. It is so awesome and I love finding new people that God and his angels have chosen to accept the Gospel.

The Sanchez family are really awesome. We are planning their baptism now for the 24th of December. We are praying daily for them and hoping they can progress. Their father is Atheist and we finally talked to him. He wanted to know all of the information that we knew and all the knowledge we had. we told him that God doesn't want us to have a perfect knowledge of things. God wants us to walk with faith, not with knowledge. He wants us to show our faith and keep walking. I testify that with faith, everything is possible.

We are getting closer and closer to Christmas! I invite you all to show your faith and grow and remember Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, and I know he came to the Earth. He died for us. He suffered for us. We will overcome the world thanks to him.

I love you all so much. Thanks for everything. I love you all so much. Thanks for everything! I love you all so much! Happy Holidays!!!!!

Monday December 5, 2016

This was a miracle. Brother Luis wasn't sure he wanted to get baptized so me and my companion just figured it would be the next week. We were returning to our room in the afternoon and he followed us home and said that he had received an answer and wanted to get baptized. This man gave up smoking and coffee and kept all the commandments so he could get baptized.  It was a miracle! I had prayed to God so much to have a baptism because my companion was finishing the mission, and I wanted to have a baptism with him. Then this all happened. This picture is testament that miracles do happen. I know God lives. I testify that he answers our prayers, when we pray with faith. I love you all so much! Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know he lives! He lives, he lives, he lives, I just know it with all of my heart!!!

I love you all!

Well hello there friends and family! I love ya'all and I testify that this work is real!

So this week we found an investigator whose name is Walter. He told us we found him at the perfect time. His wife and daughters had just left him. We taught him about Jesus Christ and the loving power of the Atonement. We each gave him a hug and he just started crying. It was such an amazing experience for me. I know he is chosen to accept the Gospel.

I want to testify to you all that this Church is true. I know that God loves us and he cares for us. I know we sometimes have challenges but I know our Savior will literally pick us up and carry us when we need him. Our Savior is always here for us. He is waiting to carry us home. All we need to do is allow him to do it.  I promise you all he is waiting for you to allow him to carry you all. I promise you all he will help you. Trust in him. Let him carry you. I know that he can do it. Allow it to happen.

I want you all to remember that our Church is unique. It is original. It is different from all the different other sects because it has the truth. We have a prophet, and 12 apostles. We have the power and authority of God. We have the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The message of the Restoration is power. It has strength. It can quiet anyone that has doubts about this Gospel. I know with all of my heart that God, our Eternal Father, and his son, Our Savior Jesus Christ, appeared to a young boy named Joseph Smith. This is the final Restoration that will happen on earth. There will never be another Apostasy. Please know that this message is a message of power. It is truth. It is a message of love, and beauty. I know this message is true, and I know it is a message of power. I know that this message is true and it needs to be taken in all parts of the world. I love you all and I testify that we have the Truth. I testify that the Book of Mormon is the most correct book here on Earth. It is written by prophets. It is about the old inhabitants of the Americas. This is True and I know it. I love you all. Have a great week and share your testimonies with the world!

This week was so awesome! We had interviews as a zone with President Rios. It was so awesome! I love our Presidente so much! He is awesome!!!!! I learned so much from him and he helped me so much!

We were able to find 8 new investigators this week. They are really awesome! We found uno hermano and his name is Luis. He is a catholic teacher and didn't believe in the restoration.

 Well hey there everyone! love you all so much and am praying for you guys everyday. This week was great and so exciting!

Well this week me and my companion, we were just walking down the street and a lady stopped us and talked to us. We talked to her and it turns out she wanted us to visit her. She had been having some troubles with her family. We went to her house and visited her. She is chosen! Her name is Rosio. She has 3 children that are all grown up. She even came with us to church on Sunday. It was awesome! She found some friends there and really felt comfortable. She is awesome!

I have been praying for General Conference to come, and it is finally here! We are so lucky to listen to the Prophet and the 12 Apostles. I am so excited!

I gave a talk in church about a testimony and the importance to find a testimony and the importance to share a testimony. I was nervous but I hoped everyone liked it!

It was a really good week here in Trujillo. We had a multi zone and it was so awesome! I felt the spirit so strong. Some other elders also told me that in Chao, my first area, the investigators that I found are going to be baptized! I love you all so much and I testify that this Work is real!

I love you all. I have been reading in 3rd Nephi a lot. I am realizing that Jesus Christ is our Savior everytime I read a verse. Each chapter is a testimony that He lives! I testify with all of my heart and my soul that our Father in Heaven lives and so does his Son, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. I love you all!
