7 Months


We got pizza to cheer up my new companion. The kid can play the piano and it's sick because it’s the first time I’ve heard piano in a meeting in 7 months!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s been hard here lately!!! I have been working so hard and we just aren’t seeing progress with anybody!!!!!!! It is very discouraging but we keep working hard because we know that God is going to bless us!! I don't have time to write, but know that I love you.

Shaking Hands



WOW THIS WEEK WAS NUTS!

We had three baptisms set up for this past weekend but they all fell through because we had some complications with the mom of the family... but it's all good because they are going to all get baptized and we know it.

Monday night we had this sick activity where we had a campfire and played games and ate a ton of food! We had lots of people come and we have some new people to teach so I’m stoked!!





Tuesday my old companion finished his mission and headed home and I became a trainer!!!! My new comp is from Mexico and he is sick! ELDER SOLONA! We are working so hard and I’m killing the kid hahaha. Our area is just straight up hills and the kid is dying but we are stilling running everyday!




Wednesday, Elder NEIL L ANDERSON came and spoke to our mission!!!!! I GOT TO SHAKE HIS HAND! And then he gave all of his talk in Spanish because he is PILAS!!!

I've got a ton of crazy stories but everyone in the mish says I can't share them because I'll scare my mom ;) so you all will have to wait until I get home hahahah!


love you guys!

I'm Going to be a Trainer




This week we baptized YEEEEEEHAAWWWWWWWW! We were so stoked to baptize here!

I made a promise with my district that I would buy pizza every time we baptize. My district was freaking out because my comp and I baptized and we are going to eat pizza hahaha!!! We are going to baptize 3 people this week!!!




Sunday we had a sleepover with our lider de distrito, which was super fun, we had to wake up early for p day because we went to Antigua. That place was so sick!! We ate crepes again and they were so good!!!!! We also bought some cool souvenirs.




When we got home, we had the best lesson with this family we are going to baptize this next weekend!!! Next Sunday is going to be a good day.

I'M GOING TO BE A TRAINER NEXT WEEK! Holy snikes!!!!!!! He is brand new and I’m not sure if he is gringo or not!! I’m stoked! We are going to have change meeting and then the next day Elder Christofferson of the 12 apostles is going to speak to our MISSSIONNNNN!!!! YEEEHHHHAAAWWWWWWW

My health is really good!! I have been running all week and it is actually kind of fun! We run to our house every night and it’s at the top of the mountain so its rough but I like it! Not so sure about my comp though haha ;)

I can’t really think of anything else! I’ve literally been running everywhere and I don’t remember anything because I feel like yesterday I wrote one of these haha! I’m going to try and be better with remembering things so I can let you guys know what’s happening.

Thanks for letting me use a little extra money. All the kids love me in the church because of all the candy I bring ;) I’m like Santa hahaha!

I LOVE YOU

ADDDIOOSOSSSSS

Bonfire Fridays


WEELLLLLL IT’S BEEN AWHILE!! Sorry I haven’t written one of these in awhile but it’s because it has been super slow here lately! We haven’t had baptisms in a long time but this week we are going to baptize two people and then the next week 3 more people!!! I’m so stoked!!!

My area is EL Carmen and it is in the capital! Everything is crazy here and there aren’t many who want to listen, but I’ve learned working hard really does pay off! God knows we are working and trying to find these people, and He blesses us! This week we have found a ton of new people and we are bringing lots of people to church! We have been having a lot of activities lately and these always help us find people! We have a bonfire every Friday and I have a guitar that I get to play! It’s super sick! All the members love us and they are always trying to help!

I just have one story to tell everyone! We have one investigator that is going to get baptized this week named Jessica! We had a visit with her 5 days ago and she told us she had a dream where her kids were killed by people from the church........We had no idea what to say! She thought it was an answer.........but then we received revelation and we destroyed EL DIABLO (the devil)! At the end of the lesson she was back to knowing the church is true and I get to baptize her. BOOOOO YYYAAAAHHHH!


I LOVE YOU ALL AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
