Jan. 25th - CHURCH IS TRUE

Alright, boiyos what's up? This week was pretty freaking boring to be completely honest ...hahaha!  Not much has really happened, just trying to save as many people as we can!  I'm not gonna lie this week was pretty tough. It was pretty weird and a lot of things didn't happened as we hoped. Like investigadores falling through and members that just don't want to help us at all. A lot of disappointment this week, but yet I feel like I am progressing a lot and becoming  more and more patient. It's amazing how much crap me and my companion put up with everyday.  I think members are counting down the days to when we leave...because they always ask when transfers are. But yet Elder M. and I still work hard. I can honestly say I'm giving this mission all I have all my time,talents and energy.  It's super hard though. I know I usually don't write like this...I'm usually never sad...but this was what this week was.  It kinda sucked...but we hope for a better week this week. It's the past and WE KEEP GOING. SIGUE ADELANTE!

But this last Saturday we had the oppurtunity to hear from the apostle QUENTIN L COOK!  It was so cool, I shook his hand...YEAH NEVER WASHING IT AGAIN! I really liked what he said about fear...."Never fear. Fear is not acceptable in the kingdom of God...God doesn't like fear. Fear in other words, is no faith." It hit me so hard. I always feel better when I hear something like that.  Afterwards me and Elder Rigby went to Wendy's with our was a good day!  It made me immediately forget my bad week. I loved it!
But I want to end this week with this quote:

"Having faith on the Lord, having a hope and ye shall recieve eternal life, having the love of God always in you hearts that ye may be lifted up at the last day and enter into his rest."

Hey! What the heck is up? Que onda, they say....meaning "what's up, Man?"  As I'm getting older in the mission my neck gets skinnier I swear its really bugging me out. I looked on the scale the other day
and weigh 155, I lost 15 to 20 pounds. I'm flaco (aka skinny)you´ll definitely see in my pics I'm sending.

Well, this week was super sick...we played basketball and invited people after we destroy them and they love us...they think we´re gonna go play college or something after the mission. It's super funny. One day we had like 15 invitations to baptism and like 43 invitations to the church...and we were only playing for like 1 hour hahaha!  We got a call from the zone leader and the APS saying, "Did you guys really get that many invitations?" and I said...."heck yeah, these people love us! Me and Elder M. ball out with both basketball and the work!" he lauged and said, "Good!  definitely start doing that more if it works for you both. Good work boys!"

I love the work. we had 2 investigadores attend church...and I think they will be baptized for sure before I PEACEOUT OF JOYAS FOR GOOD. Almost 6 months in my first area...I was trained here and I'm almost done training as well...the people will forever have a place in my heart. I seriously I LOVE THEM. It's funny they ask us all the time when transfers are and they get a little sad because they know it won't be the same! I love them and know more and more that...THAT EMERGENCY TRANSFER WAS FOR A REASON....but you guys already know I'm happier as I can ever be.

I love you so much!

Me making the turkey dinner that Mom sent for Christmas. 
(Actually Elder Burwell's mom made and freeze dried this meal...
it was awesome to have potatoes and gravy again!)

Me on a tree that fell down one night from a storm. 
All the trash that people litter in the river gets trapped and piles up...
it's gross!

What the heck is up?  I just want to let all y'all know that the work couldn't be better...the weather couldn't be hotter...and the women here flock to me and Elder M. like the beautiful sound of Capistrano!  Like I'm not kidding, the other day one investigadore who is a daughter of one member (she's like 34 and has two kids) tried to kiss me.  I almost freaked out and Elder M. couldn't stop laughing.  I told him we are only returning if we have absolutely have to...he just laughed and said, okay man!!

This week was actually super hard because after M. was baptized we didn't have any more progressing basically it was me and my companion all week trying to find someone....ANYONE who was even slightly interested in our message. It was super hard.  Elder M. said, "If they are not progressing then why are we even here?"  I'm like,  "Dude, relax they don't have to accept it...they have agency!"   But I can understand  his frustrations because really this week was so slow. but its all good....IT MAKES YOU A MAN!! I told him, That's why you can't argue with anything. Like President Hintze says...don't try and understand everything, Elder Gee, just ENJOY IT. I told my companion not everyone is gonna listen and yeah at times they will look at us like we are the dumbest people ever...but ya know what boiyo....Christ was the perfect teacher and they killed him! So that's my non stress quote for all ya...its all good and I love him more then ever now.

I have a scripture from my personal study...its in Alma 13:28-29:

But that ye would humble yourselves before the Lord and call on his
holy name, and watch and pray continually that ye may not be tempted
above that which ye can bear and thus be led by the Holy spirit.
becoming humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all long suffering.

Having faith on the lord having a hope and ye shall recieve eternal
life, having the love of god always in you hearts that ye may be
lifted up at the last day and enter into his rest.

I love that...and it has really changed my life. It makes me think realistically what my life would be without my mission.  Would I love my family as much as I do now, if I had never left...NO!  Would I ever read the scriptures and love this crazy country and people without my mission....I don't think so.  That's why I love what I'm doing so much...and I don't want to leave...because I've found my PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS!  But for real,  I'm not gonna spend too much time with my testimony.
You guys already know that I love you so much.

Jan 4th - VIVO ANO 2016!!

This week was pretty sick as far as missionaries having fun! Me and my son definitely have more fun than I think we should...hahaha!! The mission is the best! This week was full of events...our news year eve party was pretty sick...aka me and my companion sat in the house and played games (that Momma gave to me in the Christmas package) all night till 12 and then fireworks blew up all over the place ...BOOM!  Happy New Year everybody...this year truly is gonna be the best year for me because I'm a missionary for the whole year....VIVO ANO 2016!!

Then this Sunday we had a BAPTISM...with our boy M.  He is sooo awesome...he's probably like the coolest guy I have ever taught in my mission, just because he doesn't have a closed mind like 99 percent of the people we teach.  But its all good. but I let my son do it because it's his first and I know how much it ment to me when Elder A. let me do my first baptism.  Elder M. couldn't stop smiling and it made me realize more and more why I'm his trainer.  But most importantly why I have been in this area for my whole mission. I have been in Joyas de Ceren for 4 and half months now...and they told me I have 6 weeks more with Elder M....BELIZE DAT!!  I'm grateful because now I understand more and more of why I am what I am and where I am.  As a missionary in El Salvador, you see some pretty messed up things, but it humbles me because we truly do have it good at home. And we shouldnt take what we have for granted.

But I love all you guys already know I am happy as I can ever be,  doing what I'm doing....teaching what I  am teaching.... and feeling what I am feeling.  I can't ever explain it...but it's REAL.  This gospel is soooooooo true. I can't ever thank you guys enough for writing me and supporting me.  I 'm almost crying right now writing this hahaha....I don't know whats going on with's the spirit and it touches my heart more and more every week.  I can see myself mentally progress. more and more.

But I don't know really what else to say....I love all.  I know you guys probably don't know this but you guys writing me every week gives me that extra BOOST to do my best!   I'm eternally grateful....THANK YOU!!
