Hey all!!!

So this last week was really good!!!

Last week I told you about Omar and his Family, so this week I will tell you about our other investigator that is really cool too!!!

So a little about Isai. He is 19, and the grandson of a member. (The member is a super super crazy old lady!!!) He is in college to become an engineer, and is super cool!!! He has now come to church twice, and has a baptismal date for the 26th of March!!! He is really excited, and loves our visits. He is also really into exercise, and I think he is going to start going to the Gym with us in the morning!!! 

So the events for this week were the amazing eating/cooking that we did with a member. His name is Estevan, and he is a chef for the MTC (Mission Training Center)  here in Mexico. So last week after we had our meeting we came over, and learned how to make Chicken fettuccine alfredo. It was amazing!!! Then on Sunday we ate here for lunch, and then we chilled for the afternoon, and learned how to make an Impossible Cake. It is a chocolate cake with Flan on top!!! We have peanut butter flan!!! We are going to eat it today for a missionaries birthday!! We also ate snickerdoodle cookies, and cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting!!! I have become really really good friends with Estevan!!! He loves to cook, and I miss eating really good food!!! 

I can be 100% honest saying that I can not wait to get home and eat Mom's food!!! I am so tired of oil covered food that makes me feel sick after every meal!! I just want some sauteed vegetables. Doesn't matter what they are, and a super rare cooked thick steak!!! And maybe a little Guacamole that is really spicy. That makes steak taste really good!!! But I miss my Mommy's cooking!!! 

So it was another week in the mission just like that!!!!

Have a great week!!! Love you all!!!!

Hey all!!!

So I have noticed recently that I can't really speak English anymore!!! I realized that no one is going to be able to understand me when I get home!!! I have a very very heavy Spanish influence on my English. I speak pure Spanglish!!! Every third word is Spanish!!! It is really really bad. It is something that goes both ways as well. I throw Spanish words into my English, and English words into my Spanish!!! 

But, on a completely different note... I got a new comp!!! He is awesome!!! He is from my generation in the mission. (That means we got to the mission field on the same day) He is from Puebla Centro, Puebla. That is like an hour and a half from the mission. It is literally two missions away!!! It is really funny!!!  

So this week we had some really good lessons. We have now been teaching Omar and his family for about a month now, and last night we met with them again!!! (They are kind of hard to get lessons with. They are always running around!!!) But we were there, and asked them if they had any questions. And Omar looked at us, and just out of the blue asked, "What do I have to do to be part of your church?" BAM magic question!!! He is so great, so last night we taught about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and then invited him to be baptized!!! He is now starting to prepare himself to be able to be baptized!!! He is such a great guy!!! 

So other than that, it was a normal week!! We walked a lot, went to the gym and got really sore (I have started on my "7 months to super sexy"), and taught about Jesus!!! Just the normal life of a missionary!!! 

Hope you are all well there!!! I love you all.

Love you,

Hey all!!!

So this last week was pretty great!!!

Now you might ask why I say that... That would be because they are reading, and keeping their commitments, and then on top of it all are giving us references!!! 

So to tell you about one of the families!!

The Familia Solis Ovalle. 
They are a family of 6. Omar, Claudia, Vianca, Eduardo, Yonathan, and Pollo. And then we are teaching José, and Fabian. (They are two workers they have) We found them about 3 weeks ago, by contacting Omar. We then pretty much became part of his family!!! 

They came to church on Sunday, and we have now worked with them twice destroying cars!!!! It is a great way to get rid of mission stress!!! So they don't have a date to get baptized, but we are going to work this week to put a date with them!!! 

On Sunday they invited us to their house to celebrate their son's birthday. He just turned 14. We were there, and they asked us to pray for the food. (Their whole extended family was there) And then they asked us to sing a hymn and leave them with a prayer when we left!!! They are the greatest family ever!! They are for sure my family in this area!!! 

So today we spent the day again tearing apart a car with Omar. I will send pictures!!! Hope you all have a great week!!! 

Love you!

Hey all,

Sorry again for not getting you written yesterday. We had a service project that we did all day with an investigator. It was freaking awesome!!! 

So this last week was a good one, but also pretty normal. We had some really good lessons, and also had a bunch of lessons fall through. It is pretty normal though. People have their own lives, and things don't always go as planned!!! 

So we have now been teaching the people that we have found over the last several weeks!!! One of them is a family of 6. They are really really cool!!! They are still investigators, but just like out of the blue like invite us to do fun things, and to come over to eat. They are progressing really well, and I am hoping that they will get baptized. We are going to try and put a baptismal date with them this next week. 

This is the family that we did the service for yesterday. They have a business of buying old cars, and then tearing them down for scrap. So they invited us yesterday to go and get a little dirty, and help them tear a car apart. It was really fun!!!! SI (yes in spanish) that is what we did all day yesterday. We started at about 11, and finished at like 4. It was really really fun!!!! I will send pictures!!! 

Saturday was also a very fun day. So the other elders had a baptism, but there wasn't any water at the church. (Water is kind of a big part for a baptism) So they called us, and then for the next three hours we were going back and forth to members houses to to get water and then take it to the church to fill up the font. 

Three hours later, we finishes, and then were able to watch the baptism. The Spirit was so strong, This convert that was baptized has such a strong testimony. It was truly a gift to be able to watch her get baptized. She was so happy, and she just was so ready to be baptized. It is honestly so incredibilidad to see the change in people. The Lord has truly given us a gift to be able to change through his Atonement. I know He loves us, and that if we accept Him we can truly find happiness and peace!!!! 

I love you all, and love this work!!!

Have a great week!
