So hi there everybody!!!!!  Well here I am in week 5 of this change!!! I cant believe how fast this change has gone!!!! I am so happy to be here and be working in the Mission. It is awesome!!!!

This week we found a lady named Gloria. her niece lives with her. We taught them and Kiara the niece ended the lesson with a prayer. She said how happy she felt and that she just wanted to be in the true church!!! It was so awesome!!! I felt the spirit so strong. They both want baptism but don't feel 100 percent ready!! We will help them!!!!!!

I testify that the family is ordained of God. In our District reunion we talked about how everything we do, every decision we make leads us to Jesus Christ. We put pictures of our family on the board and pictures of converts and members. It was awesome. Jesus Christ really is the center of everything. 3 Nephi 27 says how the Church of Christ holds his name. Our church holds his name strong and I am so happy and feel privileged to have his name on my name tag. I love you all so so so much and testify with my whole heart this this is the True church on the earth!!!!!

Well hi there fam and friends!!!!!!! I love you all so much and hope all is going well. This week has been quick. I just realized that I am now in week 5 of this change!!!!! I cant even believe that!!!! it has gone by soooooo fast!!!!!! I feel so happy and so blessed to be serving the Lord with all of my heart mind and strength!!!!!

I love you all and testify that this is the work of the Lord.
We were able to invite an investigator with date of baptism. Her name is Maritza. She said yes and is really excited. The problem she isn't married!!! we have a goal to help her get married this month so she can get baptized in July! I am so excited for her and her family is so cute!

In my mission I have realized how much I love kids! They are so cute and funny. It makes me really excited to be a dad and have my own kids! I testify that the family is such an important role here in the earth. We all have a family. We are all so lucky that we are members of the family of God. He is literally our Father, and every single one of us are his children!

We found an investigator whose name is Ester. we talked to her bout family and she started to cry. We felt the spirit strongly. Family is really important for her. We have a goal to help her get baptized as well!!!!

I love you all so much and I testify with everything I am that this is the True Church of God here in the Earth. God is our loving Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ is his son, he is our Savior. when we keep commandments, We will receive so many blessings!!!!! God is loving! Read D&C 82 verse 10.  Love you all!

So we had the opportunity to go the temple today!!!! It was so awesome!!!!!

I testify to you all that the temple is really the House of God. Last night I wrote specific questions down that I wanted answered. I left the temple today with an answer to everyone of these questions. I know the temple is awesome and I want you all to go!

Well hello there friends! I am writing you from Trujillo! so I love you all so so so much and I hope that all is well. I am praying for you guys everyday and hoping that all is well. Remember that with God all is possible. We can accomplish anything with the help of our Lord and our Father in Heaven. 

So this week it is getting colder and colder in Las Delicias. Tengo mucho frio which means I am really cold hahaha!!!!! 

Second of all I am worried I am gonna get fat here because my penchinista cooks food from heaven! it is goood! She makes hamburgers fries and chicken and pancakes....... it is certain, I will be gaining weight back haahahaha!!!!!

So we had a really awesome lesson with a less active named Juan. He is awesome and I love him. His wife is catholic and we told him he needed to be an example for her and go to church. He went to church this Sunday after 13 years of not going! We're so proud of him!!!!! We rent our room from him so we talk to them a lot. We will help them.

We received 7 references this week and contacted 9 references. I testify this is the work of the Lord. As members and missionaries, we will have success in this work. I love you guys!!!!

It is literally right on the ocean, so I walk out of my room and the ocean is right there! it is so pretty and it is so fresh and not hot here. I love it! My companion is Elder Marichi. He's from the jungle of Peru so that is pretty sweet! I finally have a latino companion! Spanish and nothing else!! I love you guys and I hope all is well. My comp recently had 3 baptisms here so we are starting new which is awesome !
