Week 75 (Jan. 26, 2015)


This week was the interviews with president. You know what that means. Long lessons hahah. They were actually pretty good. This year we are focusing on lesson 2 The plan of Salvation. It was actually some super good practices. We also focused on how to invite people to baptism better. We now are able to easily get a baptismal date out of our investigators. We also have been focusing on how to teach the active members and get references out of them using the new cards they have given us. It is a very successful way of getting good references from our members.

The interviews were funny because the night we were supposed to do them president never showed up so it just ended up being a training meeting with the assistants. So we had to go back the next day to have the actual interviews. They went really well, it was nice to be able to talk to president.

This week we worked really hard on contacting all the references we have. We were able to find 8 new investigators this week!! 2 families. They seem really excited. Actually one of them is like our neighbors.

We are still working with jaqui with her baptismal date! She is so excited! We are going to baptize her on her birthday!! I’m getting really pumped too because February 14 is coming up and here in Mexico the people get married free on that day, so we are going to take advantage and marry some other people!!

As far as my release date. I still do not know. Apparently president extended all the American Elders so if that’s the case I will be coming home August 3. But I will see what happens.

Love you all so much!!!

Week 74 (January 19, 2015)


This will officially be the last time I miss your guy’s birthdays!!!!! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
I didn’t have any time to write last week because my companion had to leave and they don’t really notify us early so we were running around at the last minute.
We did a lot of transfers this week. We also worked a ton this week. We contacted like crazy. We have all these apartment complexes in our area, we just went out one day and contacted them all. Well not all of them, but a bunch. We actually found this guy contacting and we found out that he is inactive member. We also found out that his wife is not a member. So we gave him a new contacting card we are using so that he could go home and look at the video. He sent us a text later that night and thanked us for what we did. He said that God definitely sent us because he has been going through some trials in his life.
We have a baptism coming up soon!! Jaqui is ready to be baptized, we are going to baptize her on the 7th!! We are also working with 3 more that are probably going to be baptized here pretty soon!!!!!

That is all from Mexico!! I miss you all a ton. Love you!!!

Week 72 (January 5, 2015)

Fireworks!! Happy New Year!!
Look at the sticker! BYU
A hat connected to a backpack!! 
Oh how I want to go in!!
HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! Ya it is officially 2015!!!! Wow! Time is flying by like super quick. Another good old week here in beautiful Mexico! And like last year, TONS OF FIREWORKS! New years is literally like the 4th of July back home haha. So of course we bought a whole bunch of fireworks and lit them off. It was super fun. We were invited to quite a few parties. We were able to go to a few, but not all of them. So we partied hard with the members and we lit off fireworks with them.

Then we came home and waited until 12 o clock. That is when the people here burn their ´`oldies`` I don’t know if you remember that from last year but the oldies are life sized grass dolls they make that are dressed like old people and filled with ton of fireworks. At like 11:30 everyone starts to dance with their oldies and then at 12 everyone goes out and burns them. For like half an hour straight everything is just blowing up, everywhere you look there is an explosion. It is like literally the funniest thing ever. I will show you all the video when I get home.

As far as the missionary side is concerned. This week was super slow!! Because we are in like a little town, everyone left on vacations. So this whole week there was like no one home. So this week was a little bit slower but the next week will be better.

Also today was transfers!! I will be staying here in Olmeca, but my companion left and now I am here with another one. His name is E. Navarro, yes he has the same name as one of my x companions but he is a different one. I am excited to get back to work again.!! So I guess we will see what happens.

I love you all soooo much! Have a wonderful week!!!
