Nov. 18th "The Lord really loves us. He has given us so much beauty and goodness in this world."

Darvin..... HE HAS A BAPTISMAL DATE.  He is the hardest person to find and we found him and he wants to be baptized. I have never been so happy. I could not stop smiling. ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Familia Joj.... from my second week here. We invited them to a Family Home Evening with a member and Hno. Eduardo was talking to them about being baptized; they were like yeah... we want that. But they aren’t married so Hno. Eduardo talked to them about the importance of the Law of Chastity and then Hna. Olga Joj was like I need to get my papers together. Sisters will you go with me? UH YES. We are going tomorrow. I am so happy. I love them so much!!!

Cezar. New investigator. Coolest man ever. We walked into his house and I could tell something was off but didn’t know what it was. He is blind. So humble. He was straightforward and asked us so what are you doing here? What’s the purpose of your visit? At first, he was very stand offish but the response of my comp changed it all. She was speaking in that moment but I KNOW that the Spirit was truly speaking. Testifying of the truthfulness of her words. I have never felt the Spirit was strongly. It was amazing. Then he said and the other sister.... why are you here? I don’t even remember what I said but it was something that I could not have testified of on my own. The Spirit truly does testify of the truthfulness of this work. We went back the next day and then he asked how the Book of Mormon is different from the Bible? The Relief Society Pres. was with us and her response was perfect. WE NEED THE MEMBERS IN THIS WORK. CALL THE MISSIONARIES NOW.

Hna. Lillian made me a skirt!!! I love her. She always visits with us and her testimony is rock solid!!! :)
Today... I went to a jungle. It was amazing. We are so blessed. The Lord really loves us. He has given us so much beauty and goodness in this world. :)

Nov 11th, 2013 Just listen to its message with your heart and you will feel it is true too.

Buenas from Guatemala!!!!
So I had no idea that my sister was in the middle of a typhoon!! I am so glad that she is safe. I was so worried when I first read my mom’s letter. Please pray for the people in the Philippines at this time that they can find peace and comfort.
This week was a roller coaster of emotions.

We had a family home evening with a super awesome family of only sisters. I love these girls so much. They are always willing to teach with us and their testimonies are rock solid. Their mom passed away about a year ago and I had no idea it was so recent. They are such an amazing example to me of strength. Their mom decided to get baptized when she was younger and helped convert her husband too and now two of her daughters want to serve missions. Sometimes we really underestimate the impact the decisions in our lives. Not only in our lives but the lives of others. Do not be afraid to share the Gospel. The change and the blessings you can bring to a person and their family is eternal. It does not only last an earthly lifetime but forever.

We were able to teach an elderly woman and a large handful of her grandchildren. It was such a special lesson. As we were saying the prayer, I felt a little arm loop around me. Little children are seriously angels. I love them so much.

So we went teaching with two recent converts. THEY ARE SO AWESOME. Hna. Ingrid and Hno. Tony. They are like my brother and sister here. They are so amazing and their testimonies always strengthen me. I am so grateful to be here and meet all of the people here in San Felipe. I truly do love them!! :)

Awesome lesson with Jimena!! We have been trying to get a hold of her for like 2 months and finally we did!! Hna. Moreno and I (companion splits, where you trade companions for a day or few hours) taught her about the Restoration and she actually understood what we were saying. She really expressed how she was feeling and I felt like we were really teaching her according to what she needed. This Gospel is true. It can help me, you, Jimena, anybody in this world!! Just listen to its message with your heart and you will feel it is true too.

Always have love and hope in your hearts and continue in faith. The Lord hears our prayers and He answers them too. He helps us to know what to do and will guide us to do what is right through the Holy Ghost. I love you all!!!

The Lord lives and He loves us all ! Nov 4th, 2013

Hola familia y amigos!!

Feliz dia de los muertos!! o and Happy Halloween!!! :)

So day of the dead here is legit!  Cemeteries in the US are kind of daunting and sad but here it is like the perfect place for a fiesta!!! There were hundreds of people all over. It felt kind of like Greenbluff Apple Festival to be honest....but in a cemetery and no apples. But it was so awesome. Oh and they eat this meal every day of the dead..... Fiambre. Look it up. Warning.... you may throw up. It has like 35 ingredients of veggies, meat and all kinds of things. It has a lot but basically tastes like beets.....

This week we had an activity in the Church and we watched The Testaments. It was amazing. We had quite a few people who showed up and I just felt the Spirit so strongly. The Savior really did come to the Americas as it says in the Book of Mormon. He still lives and He will come again. I just felt so much love in my heart for our Savior as I watched this film and I know the other people who attended did as well. He came for us. This Church is His. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints truly is the Church that our Savior established while He was here on Earth and it holds the FULLNESS of the truth. I am so grateful for that knowledge and if you don’t have this knowledge, just read the Book of Mormon, pray, go to Church and it will come!!

So we had a lesson with Hna. Norma and we were all so tired. We could not stop yawning, which caused us to laugh, and we could not stop laughing!!! It was so fun and I really love her and her family. She is preparing to get baptized!! She just works on Sunday so we are really trying to focus on her going to church this Sunday!! 

I cannot really think of anything else so that is all!!
I love you all tons!!
The Lord lives and He loves us all!!
We are not alone and never will be.
