The Lord Loves Us


These week went by really fast and I am doing well. I don't have much to say so sorry for the shortness of the letter. But this week we finally helped a family that we are teaching come to church. They are really cool they have all the desires to go to church. They told us after church yesterday that they really liked it and want to come back again!! Well my companion is doing really, really, well. He is doing all the work visits with the District Leader and the Zone leaders so in that aspect he is growing so much. It is amazing to see him grow. Yesterday we were talking about his growth and he shared somethings that are so true. Now he talks and is not afraid to talk so he can teach.. somewhat but better than when he got here. 

I am grateful for this wonderful calling that my Father in Heaven has given me. This has been a wonderful experience with so much learning involved! I love this Work! I know our Lord looks after us and loves and wants the best for each and everyone of us!!

Keep Working


This week was a little longer week than normal. But I am well and my companion is well also. We have been able to find a lot of new people to teach this week and I have a had some cool experiences too! Well this week we found a golden contact!! We contacted a lady who told us that about 3 months ago missionaries had contacted her and invited her to go to church. She wanted to go but didn't really know how. Well we talked with her and her husband and they expressed desires to get married. Tomorrow we are going to visit them and talk a little more! 

 Well I was with Elder Anderson on Saturday night. We were going to visit some people and no one was home! And we sat there for a good 10 minutes not knowing what to do then I said we should start contacting. It was like 8:30 at night and we still had like 30 minutes left so we start contacting the first 3 doors nothing then the 4th door we find out she is a less active and that she was wanting to go to church! She came to church yesterday! 5th, 6th. 7th .8th. nothing then we knock a door and a kid comes out and tells us that about a year ago he was visiting the elders. We must work with faith to give God the probability and likelihood to bless us!!

The Right Words at the Right Time


Well this week has been a very blain week. We taught a lot of people but they just didnt make it to church this week. This week I have been having trouble. I have told my companion that he needs to put in to another gear because I am leaving this change and he will have to lead in the area! It is kind of scaring me. But his progress will be slow but surely it will get there. 

This week we were teaching a family that was really cool. Well the mom was cool the dad not so much... but anyways we talked to them about marriage and that we can help them in that aspect and the eyes on the sister shot up and said, "We were actually planing on getting married soon, that would be great if you could help us" I was thinking back on that little experience that we had and i thought to myself," How is it that God plans everything perfectly so that we can be in the right place at the right time saying the exact things that the people need to hear..." Kind of messed with my mind a little...

Well this Friday that passed we had a ward activity!! It was a lip syncing war! To see who could do the best lip sync!! And of course it was a Mission Activity so we had to participate. We didn't prepare anything until the day of the Activity in the morning and at that we weren't really prepared, but we improvised and it turned out great! A recent convert asked us after how much time we spent on that, because to him it looked liked we had practiced but we told him 3 hours and we was astonished!!! 

Well I have been studying Matthew in the bible and wanted to share a little scripture that caught my atention! 

 MATTHEW 26: 38 Then saith he unto them,  My soul is exceeding sorrowfuleven unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
