24 July 2017

I am doing good. The mission sent me my itinerary this week which is weird and just makes me realize that it is more official. I love you all so much. I am trying to finish hard to the end. Me and my comp are good. We are working hard together. Last week we found 17 new investigators and this week we found 14! We were able to invite 4 more people to baptism, and we took 4 people to church!  It was awesome! I love you so much.

Well I am here in Casma, they say it is the city of eternal sun, but it isn't that hot right now because it is winter here haha!

My area is called Cumorah 1. It is a branch, and it is way little! Only like 40 to 60 members go each week, it is even smaller than Chao.  I love it though! The church is really small.

We have a mom and daughter that have baptismal dates for the 22nd of July. We are hoping to get them ready to be baptized.
I can't believe that I am in my last change, it feels really weird.

Tell everyone I love them.  I am doing so good! I am giving it my all so that I can have an experience like mason did and know I gave it my all! I love you all so much and hope everyone is doing good.

 03 JUL 2017

 Well some shocking news is that I am going to leave my area. President called me last night for the changes and thanked me for the time that I given as a zone leader and he said he had given me a new assignment as District leader. So I am going to an area called Casma, and I will finish there haha! It is hard to go to a new place for just  6 weeks but I know that the Lord has a reason for it. I just have to except it , even though the changes are hard because that means that I have to say goodbye to more people that I have learned to love and trust in. It is hard, but I know the Lord will help me. I just want to do what he wants. I just want to work hard this last change and give it my all. I now the Lord will bless me!!!

The BAPTISM HAPPENED AND I BAPTIZED HER!  It was so awesome and such a fun moment for me. I will never forget it. I love Alicia so much. She is awesome! I will miss her a lot.

We got to go the temple last week and it was so amazing! The Lord gave me answers that I needed. I felt so good and so relieved and happy. It was such an amazing experience. It gave me more strength. I am going to always visit the temple.

I love you so much. I am praying for you guys everyday. My new comp is going to be Elder Hernandez.  He is Latino, so i am going back to all Spanish haha!

I love you all so much!

So I just wanted to share an experience with you all.

I just wanted to say how much I have loved my mission, and I know this is the work of the Lord.  We have been working hard as a companionship to work hard and be strong and give it our all. Sometimes, it is stressful haha! 

I was feeling a little stressed, and I prayed before going to bed, and I woke up the next morning so peacefully. it was such a beautiful feeling for me. It was what i needed to be at peace, and the lord gave me that feeling. I know that God loves us. We are his children, and he wants what is best for us. I love this work so so much. I know God watched over me in that moment and gave me that feeling of peace that I needed.

I invite you all to just take a second and kneel and pray to the Lord so he can help you. I promise you all that he will help you all in times of need. I love you all so much, and I testify God is real, and he knows us better than we know ourselves. Trust in him. Just trust... I love you all so much and have a beautiful week!

The most difficult battles are overcome on your knees!!!

So I am sorry it has been a while since I have written a group email. I am going to today, because I love you all and I just want to say hi!

One thing that I have learned as a missionary is that God is there for all of his children. He loves us and he wants what is best for us. Every time that I have prayed and kneeled with a problem or worry, or if I needed to repent for something, I have always felt a peaceful feeling inside. I know this is the Holy Ghost speaking to me. I know God listens to our prayers. We just need to give our all and trust in him. He loves us, and he wants what is best for us. I know this is true. 

We are here to be made better. To return to the presence of God, we need to be strong. Returning to his presence isn't an easy thing to do. Living the Gospel isn't an easy thing to do, but the blessings that come from being obedient are so worth it. I Testify that God lives. I testify that he loves us so much, and for us, he sent his only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ for us. 

I know he lives. I love you all so much. Please have faith in him. I know he will always help us. I love you all!!
