September,1, 2014 Chapter 12: Battle with the J dubs‏

Our Assitant to the pres.  HE is going home this transfer.

This week was one of the better weeks of the journey down here in ugly Cultral CO! haha The lord really helped us out this week.  I really swear I’m working my hardest.  God saw it this week and felt that is was time to bless us with some great smiles!! I love God! :)

So, Monday:
P DAY. pocha bailed on us, and we walked a year and half around town... hahah
We had the president come and visit us and we had our zone conference.  I will send a picture of our zone when Hma Lovell sends us the pictures in a week or so.  We started at 8 in the morning and sat in the church and felt the spirit and learned until 4 o clock in the afternoon. After those spiritual eons in the capilla, we took Elder Addcock out.  He is an elder from a different district which is 3 hours away.  His comp just got sent home because he got possessed by the devil.  He started prophesying that he was going to be the last prophet of this dispensation.  That would be cool tho, because I could say he was in my mission.  But it’s not.  We also met this guy who was bumping so linkin Park.  It was part of their new album.  Which I didn’t know they had.  IT was soooo sweet! Why isn’t anybody keeping me up on the good music lately?? haha we talked to him and taught him for a little and set a meeting for later in the week.  Just to skip forward he never answered later.... then we taught this less active, and she already went to the temple but she just works too much.  So we taught about revelation through pray and the spirit was super strong. We ended the night at the terminal where we sent off our homie from Rincon!
Then a slide with no slide.. haha whaooo!!!

Argentina became home for me finally.  I finally realized that Ii am probably not coming back to the United States anytime soon... haha it finally settled in and I started baring down and loving it more!  I was on exchanges with Elder Cardenas from Ecuador.  He is from where Colton Hill is serving.  He is 24 and I barely understood him.. But by the end of the day we were able to talk and hold conversation.  We taught Juana but she didn’t really like that she had to be baptized again after she had been baptized in the evangelico church.  So next time we will teach her the authority.  We also found out, that poor little Milagros, that is 13 years old, ruined her life.  She got pregnant. That is so sad.. Hopefully she will turn to God now... We will continue to visit her, and pray. I hope you guys can do the same..
Today, we met with this guy named Hernan.  He is a menos activo.  He called us over because he was breaking the law of chastity with his girlfriend and he is sick of feeling nasty. Exact translation from Spanish to English. He spilled the beans on every sin he has committed and really wants to change.  He ended up not coming to church, but he will this next week. Pray from him and he can have strength.  He broke up with his girl to become better!! his girlfriend might get baptized but she lives in a different area!!!
Today, we had a tsunami for the other elders in our district.  We spent the 2 hours searching.  I was with the chileano and he is dope.  We found 2 new investigators and they were way interested. We then went back to our area, and found a miracle.... WAHOOOO we went searching for a reference and she didn’t answer.. I asked her vascino... I don’t know the word in English.. I forgot.. The person that lives right next to them.  So, she just barged right in their house and pulled out our investigator by the arm.  We then talked to her and she told us that she has a niece in the hospital that is premature.  So we said we have the perfect message that can help you throw this time in your life.  She let us in, and we taught the plan of salvation very simple.  We didn’t ask to be baptized but we set up a return appointment for Saturday.
We talked with Juana about the authority of god to baptize.  The spirit guided that lesson and we spoke with the spirit and love.  She understood the apostasy and understood the importance of the Authority.  She accepted a baptism date for the 5 de octubre.  Please pray for her! She is ssoooooo awesome!!!  After that, all other appointments fell through that day so we went to the Ward party and hung out with some members. Then called it a night.
We walk a fool.  We woke up and studied and I studied the scriptures that joseph smith wrote in liberty jail.  D&C 121 through 123.  if you haven’t read it.  PLEASE READ IT. ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY. SARAH; CARO, MOM, ANNA.  It will help so much.  You too boys in the family.  It will touch your heart.  I then asked for a testimony of Joseph Smith and Then received a Warm answer and testimony of him in my heart.  God answers prayers even if it is simple.  Then we had church, and had the executive meeting where we are the ward mission leaders of our ward.  So that was cool.  Estela answered but her son was playing in his band in the back so the spirit couldn’t really dwell there so we set up a meeting for the next week.  Hopefully today later tonight!!

A messin around pic.
This week was awesome.  I still have a testimony.  I got to write the pres. right now... so I got to go!!!

If I could lasso the moon in, I would and give it to you guys. I love ya!! This church is true.  Alway will be.  Maybe ill take a nap today.... ahha
