Week 101: Well.... Really slow internet, so I don't know if the pictures will work...

Well, it looks like they loaded so we will assume that it worked. But, the pictures are of divisions, we found a TINY bathroom in Matias Romero that is basically for Nursery. But it was funny so we took a picture. We also ate pizza. The other fun thing we did was go to Comitancillo. It is a little tiny brach like an hour away that is part of our area to help them get ready for a missionary activity! It was really fun and went really well! We only had like 7 show up but that is the whole Relief Society! They also gave us a reference so that is good!!!

Anyway, this week was good! We have been trying to find new people but has been a bit difficult. We have a few investigators progressing, but I want to leave this area a lot better than I found it so I am gonna keep pushing till the end!

Well, I don't have much more to say cuz I'll be able to say it in person soon... Lol, well see Y'all soon!

Week 100: Lots of Pictures....

Well... Lots of stuff to say, but I really don't know where to start or what exactly to say.... First pictures... Because I found my USB's!!! Talk about answered prayers. Anyways...

2 of brownies gone bad. Looks more like lava cake Lol.

Baptism of Miguel!!! I got to baptize him and we had a lot of fun!

Super district of 12 missionaries. Literally half of our zone are in one district now. Because of something called special transfers.

ALITAS!!! (Wings)

Iguana.... Well it says in the Book Of Mormon to preach to every creature.

And well that is me being the most AMERICAN I can be in Mexico. Sitting in an American flag hammock, wearing a bald eagle tie and a captain America jacket. But it was super hot so I took off the jacket immediately.

So with the USB's, I was trying to find them for like 2 weeks straight and I literally tore everything apart and put it back together. And so after a lot of prayers, we had gone to church and there I grabbed my bag and felt this weird lump. So I take everything out of my bag and I find my USB's and that made me very happy because I have a lot of stuff that I mean isn't necessary, but I definitely want it. So I was very pleased yesterday.

But I have been trying to get better recently at using my time wisely, especially my studies, and so I'll tell y'all how that goes next week!!!

Have a great week!

Week 99: Brownies gone bad, baptisms gone well, and LOTS of missionaries moving houses....

Well, so we had a decently packed week! It was fun, but I can't find my adaptor... So Y'all will have to wait till next week for the pictures. But first is that there have been quite a few missionaries that have been trying to change their houses for some reason or another, and so we had to go first check out the houses and make sure they were suitable for missionaries, and then today we helped some sisters actually change houses, which was fun just to get everything and pack it up, and then move it and then help them get a bit situated. But we have also been able to have fun this week!

We made brownies with a member of the bishopric... But it was funny because the oven at the church doesn't work very well so it burned the edges and then the middle was like a lava cake so it was funny. BUT! It tasted really good.

Anyways, on a more spiritual level, we had a baptism!!! Sorry, no pics... But Miguel is a nephew of Guadalupe, who got baptized like a month ago. It was really spiritual and she shared her testimony and it was a really moving experience. While there were not a ton of people, I know that they are progressing a lot, and even with trials, everyone can blossom! I know that when we are going through hard times, if we stay true to our Savior, He will help us and we will overcome any and everything that comes our way. So, I Hope that Y'all have a great time! Bye, till next week!

Week 98: Another EARTHQUAKE!!!

Well, I am kinda done with the whole earth shaking thing... My first area is a bit destroyed, but not completely. The good thing is I talked to some members and everyone there is ok.

Well besides that, this week was fun. My comp went to Oaxaca to go to the temple, and pres told me I can do it one time before I go home!!! So I'll probably go in like 2 or 3 weeks and tell my converts from Rio Grande and maybe a couple other places to come too! Pres told me that I had permission to set something up with my converts to make sure they were there with me so that will be SUPER FUN!!!

Anyways, while my comp was in Oaxaca, I was with a new Elder who got here 2 weeks ago, and well that was when the earthquake happened, Fun! But we had a lot of good lessons and contacts. Found a really prepared new person to teach that has a lot of potential. We had a lot of random things going on this week, like zone conferences and so this week should be calmer. Also, that reminds me. There is a movie that came out from Disney called "Coco" and in Mexico, the missionaries got permission to see it, because of the Mexican culture that shows up in the movie. We saw it in the zone conference and it was AWESOME! I liked it a lot. It was very true to the culture that I have seen here in Oaxaca so that made it nice.

Anyways, have a good week!

Well, I got sick again... But this time it is just a small throat thing... I am now speaking like batman... It was very interesting to give a 15-minute talk yesterday at church... So that was fun, but it all worked out.

But this week was a good week. I have learned that we need to make sure our area is an example for the others. We talked about that in the leadership meeting that we had this last week. And so we had to go to Oaxaca on Wednesday, which was fun! I also did exchanges with some other elders in the zone because they were having some troubles but we got it worked out and so we are hoping that it stays good!

Well, that was basically the whole week, it went by kinda fast so I hope that this next week I can get a lot more done in my area! But I'll actually be here this week so that will be good!

Week 96: Lots of pictures!

So, this week has been packed, and this next week will be as well! We have to give away half of our area, and so we are a bit sad, but that is good because it means that there are more missionaries and each ward will have their own missionaries. But it was hard finding a house, but we found one and now we just need to sign the contract and it will be fine and dandy. But we also had 2 baptisms!!! So Let me talk about the pics first....

One is of our district! We will be having changes tomorrow so it will change (I know it is my last transfer, don't remind me)
2 are of the Baptism!!! Jesus (the little kid) and Guadalupe (his mom) got baptized!! It was amazing! Plus they got baptized super quick! Literally one month ago we found them and they went to church for the first time. I know that God has been preparing them and also that God has a huge plan for them that they are now beginning to understand! :)
2 are of hamburgers we ate to celebrate the baptism!! (Also Elder Verkler came down because he was doing divisions close by and so he stopped in for the baptism! And we went and ate some HUGE hamburgers afterwards.
The rest are of a family home evening!!! We made pizza with some recent converts who had stopped going to church for a while, and they TOTALLY went back on Sunday!

Also, Guadalupe and Jesus got confirmed! And we are a bit sad because they are in the ward that we are losing but it is cool because the church is true and they have a lot of work in their area.

Well, I gtg so have a great week!
