5.8.17 - He Sends Blessings, He Sends Blessings

Hello All!!!! 

I hope you´re all doing wonderfully and enjoying every day! 

This last week, we had some pretty special experiences. We we´re talking to a less active this last week, who is also a returned missionary, and he gave us some awesome ideas for finding new people, and achieving our goal of a baptism every week.

One of the members of our ward lost her brother this last week in a horrible accident... and when we visited her, her sadness was apparent, but her testimony was shining like a light. I know that my testimony of the Plan of Salvation grew a mile in our visit with her, and I´m so grateful for the knowledge and testimony I have of it.

We´re finding new people each week, and we´re starting to work even more with the ward to keep the work moving forward.

We had a conference with our mission president yesterday about ward counsel and how we can work together better. We also had a change in the number of times our investigators need to attend church before they can be baptized. It was five before, and now it´s three. and if they´re really ready, it´s two!! I´m so excited to keep moving forward in the work of the Lord and finding those whom he is preparing for the message that we have. 

I´m sorry this is a little short, we didn't have a whole lot of time today with all that we had to do. 
I hope you all have a great week! Be safe, and follow the promptings of the Spirit that you receive :) 

Love you all to pieces!

7.3.17 - Independence Day

Hello Everybody! 

These last couple of weeks have been pretty great, and super busy.  We're still tryin to get to know our area-it's pretty big haha. But it is super beautiful here, and I love it. LOVE IT. Tezoyuca is incredible, and super green.  Basically it's the greatest. 
We had our Conference this last week and it was wonderful.  The Spirit was super strong and I am loving being a missionary. I have learned so many things, and especially the last few weeks as a trainer, I feel like I've learned even more.  My testimony and love for missionary work continues to grow, and I am more and more grateful each day for the opportunity to be here.  We have challenges, but we grow so much more from them, and always come out on top. It has been an incredible process for me to see how much my companion, Sister Diaz is already progressing in her testimonies and being.  She was already an incredible young woman when she came, but now, and with each week, she continues to grow i…

6.19.17 - First Week of Training

Well I'm going to consider this week a success. One of the best and most stressful weeks of my life. But I loved every minute of it :D

My new companion is suuuuuper awesome and we get along like peas in a pod. She is from the Dominican Republic and she speaks English :D so I'm pretty happy that I get to practice my English every once and a while. Especially because my brain was forgetting how to talk. I don't know how to explain it .... I can think in English, and write in English, but talking en English has become more difficult than I'd like to admit. but it's fine hahaha :D We practice every once and a while and it's pretty wonderful. 
We are in Tezoyuca and it is super beautiful here. There are tons of trees and the mountains are covered in green. I feel right at home :) The members here are wonderful, and they love visiting investigators with us. So everybody is happy.  
This last week was full of meeting new people, getting to know the area and trying to …

2.20.17 - Come What May and Love It

Hello Everyone! 

This past week was pretty awesome, as every week has been :) The mission is great and I love it so much here. This past week we had interviews with President Avila and his sweet wife. I love them so much. The interviews are always getting better because I understand Spanish more and more each time, and it's just awesome.  With Hermana Avila, she asked us to imagine ourselves as investigators and think about our progress (but as missionaries). How are you progressing? What changes have you made? How are you using the Atonement of Christ everyday in your life? How have you improved? As I thought about these questions, I thought about the past few months here in Mexico and my experiences as a missionary... I want to invite all of you to ask yourselves these questions, and think about your personal progression as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  I promise that the Spirit will testify to your heart as it did to mine.  I felt the love Heavenly Father has for me, and how he w…
