Changes :(

[Oct 25, 2016 email]

Well tis a sad day today.... its my last day with elder xavier and i can`t express how fast this change went!! time is going by too fast! but it is official he is leaving to melo, the zone where i was before and i am going to be with Elder Bravo, i really have almost no idea who is he is! but i have really good things about him and im a little nervous for this next change but its going to be awesome! we have a sick zone and im excited to see the progress and miracles of this next change.  

as you saw in the photos we had a open house this week and the ward members killed it!!! they are so awesome here! one of the leaders of the ward walked outside of the church and just starting inviting every single person that he saw in the street and like 20 people came to the church just because he was in the street! it was incredible! but we had a good turn out and the ward is super involved in the work here! 

but as me and elder xavier have been getting ready for the new changes, we have been talking about the last change and all that has happened and it is incredible the amount of miracle that we have been seeing and our area has been changed in the last couple of changes that he has been here, president eddy has been talking alot about faith and putting it to the test, and as we have been doing it our testimonies have been strengthened and we are seeing more and more miracles than ever before in my mission and we are just hoping that the lord will keep blessing us and i will let you know about the progress of the investigatores next week, thanks so much for everythign you guys do and i hope you have a great week!

Subject goes here...

Hey family friends and all those who end up reading this email!!! 

i am running out of ideas on how to start my emails besides "hey".  well this week was a really exciting week and we have seen a lot of awesome things happening!! Monica finally started reading the book of mormon angain and it looks like she is finally going to start progressing again!! she had stopped reading and she just hasn`t been the same person and has just been a lot more depressed but she started reading again, and now we are going to see what happens.  Mary is still progressing and we had a charla with her boyfriend and her son!! but her son was drunk and basically ruined the charla but we are going to see what happenes with the boyfriend!  we are also teaching a lady named sandra who is really interested in the church and we have only had like 2 lessons with her but she is showing a lot of interest and we are going to see what happens!! 

But this has been an awesome week, we have been able to spend a lot of time teaching and we have had more lessons this week, than i have ever had in my mission, we have a ton of investigatores and all we have to do is to help them to progress, and we are working hard and enjoying the mission! but it has been going by so fast that i can`t even think of what is going on here in belloni! i just feel like it was yesterday that i wrote you guys! but the church is true and i hope you are all good, and i will see you next week!

not sure what to put here....

[Oct 10, 2016 email]

Well another week has flown by... and i don`t even know where to start! well on tuesday we had interviews with president eddy and after the interview he took us out to lunch and we just talked about some things that are going on here in maroƱas (the zone) and ate some really good meat! it was soo good!! but unfortunatly the interviews ran late and we were going to leave and work in the street with president but we didn`t have the time :( but we are going out in 2 weeks! 

two weeks ago i told you guys about a less active member that we found, and we hadn`t had a lot of contact with her because she lives kinda far away and didn`t come to church so last night we went by her house to see if she was there and she answered and she just immedietly just started going on how about how much her life has changed! its been 16 days since we first found her, and its now been sixteen days that she is reading the book of mormon, and sixteen days that she hasn`t smoke a single cigarette!! and she just hasn`t gone to church cause she has been in other cities and hasn`t been here, but she has completely changed! its so cool how the Lord works.  and to see that we literally showed up in the perfect moment of her life, its a testimony builder of the fact that God truly KNOWS every single one of his children and does everything possible to help them. 

but there isn`t much to report this week, just been a good week of work and chances to serve.  Love you all and i hope you have a great week!

General conference!!

[Oct 3, 2016 email]


well as you guys know we had general conference this week, and as always it was great!!! we had kinda crazy day running around for 2 hours looking for investigators and then 2 hours of conference and then repeat 5 times!! haha but in all honestly it was really good this conference, and i really felt like there was a big focus on just the basic things of the gospel, The book of mormon, Prayer, Faith, and a couple other things, but i really like that they are focusing on these things, because with the world as it is, we need to put our trust in God and we do that through going to church, reading, praying, and trying to follow his spirit.  It was great for the investigators that went and they all had a really good experience and it was the first time to church for 3 of them and they really enjoyed it! 

as for the investigators that we are teaching, we have two people who have a baptismal date, Mary and Monica, and they are both getting ready to be baptized, and they both have a testimony of the book of mormon and they are just getting prepared and we are really excited for the things that are coming!! but thanks for all your love and support and im very greatful for each and everyone of you!! i hope you have a great week, and i look forward to hearing from you next week!!
