February 2, another hard week

My new bike

Hi Fam.

So this week was one of the hardest weeks I have had in the mission.  
A lot of walking and a lot of people not answering there doors.  It was super hard.  But I know there was reason for all things. 

Just a heads up, I don’t have a lot of time. I might be cut short again.  But I’m doing still fantastic.  I still love studying.  I have learned a lot lately.  I am staying firm with all the reading.  I hope you guys are as well. 
Love this guy

A miracle that happened this week was after super long nights, super long days praying... for a less active family that has a little girl that is ready to get baptized, they finally let us in to talk to them.  First, we just showed our love and our gratitude for letting us in.  Then we just shared some spiritual experiences with them.  Then, they asked us if we would start passing by more because they are doing super bad spiritually.  We jumped for joy because of course we want to help.  So now we have set up some family nights to do with them for the week.  So we are pretty excited for that.

This week, we got evacuated from the pension because there is a huge fire in Lago Puelo that is taking over the whole city.  So we are living in El Boslon.  And we have been praying hard for rain.  This fire has been going on for a solid 5 days now.  And nothing can stop it.  But now, as we have been praying for a miracle, as I am speaking to you right now, it is raining.  It is a miracle.  Please pray for the people in Lago Puelo.  The houses and the places so people can be safe.  Pray for more rain.  Its super crazy and super sad at the same time.  Never thought some city would mean so much to me.

Other than that we had a conference with the president this week.  It was great and very spiritual.  But honestly one of the most boring things I have ever been to in my life.  Usually they are super fun, but it was sooooo boring.  But I did learn a lot of new things.  Especially that I need to use the Preach my gospel more.  Things are looking up.  I’m super happy for the mission.  I am super happy with the work.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

January 26 another day in Paradise.

Our Christmas ties

Hello family,

So this week... it has been a super weird one.  One that I have never had in the mission. Just a lot of trials and good things happened.  Like a friggen roller-coaster.  Its kind of nuts, but its kind of good.  I have learned a lot of myself, and been able to help a lot of people as well.  I’m super grateful.

This week, I really started out trying to consecrate myself.  Really trying to make myself worthy to call on the power of God from the heavens.  So first I want to tell you guys about a lied I made when I was in high school.  I was drifting in the white truck and I totally blew out the tire when I hit the curb... and I told dad the cold air made it flat because it was the dead of the winter.... I was telling that story to my companion and realized I never repented for lying like that..... soooo... sorry dad.  I lied to you about that.  I blew out the tire that one day. I think I paid for it anyway... so we are good! ;) hahahahaha
Zone conference 

But this week, I have seen so much of a difference in my spirituality.  I have felt the spirit all day, walking and talking; my language is clearing up and really feels like I can walk with the angels to have that blessing to call upon the heavens.  I am starting to take each week more and more serious! And it is awesome.

Mom asked me if I had problems,  I kind of did, my health hasn’t been the best so I have had to push through that, and really try to follow the will of God.  Things are looking up and I am good as gold.

First, my comp is going through some hard personal problems, and its super hard for him to keep his excitement, but we are working through it together. Please pray for him.  Elder West!

Lucas didn’t come to church... I was super bummed about that.  But we taught him really well this week; I just don’t know what else to do. He has all the lessons, everything done; we are just waiting on him to marry. It’s super hard that people have their own agency.  Why can’t they just listen to us.... ugh. Anahi, returned from Buenos Aires, but didn’t come to church either... she is super lost. Super alone, and has depression because of all her friends dropped her because she was  baptized... so please pray for her.  We have two other girls with baptism dates.  Paula and NIlda, please pray for them that they can listen and open their ears.  Paula is super special and wants to get to the celestial kingdom.  So we have super big hope in her!  Please pray for all of them.  Sorry it’s a lot but please do so.

I want you guys to know, that even though things are a little rough, I am still super happy.  I can honestly say I am loving the mission and taking the challenges well.  I am learning as I go so I can become the greatest missionary I can be on the last day.  GET BETTER EVERY DAY:  I am super blessed with the love of the Lord.  He carries me through these hard times and I’m super grateful.  Thank you for your support and your care.  BUT I AM SOOOO GREAT!!!

Love you guys more than you know!
