May 29th - 3RD TIME IS A CHARM!

Yo fam, 

Hey what's up everybody, hows it going? This week was super sick......

This week was super good, not really much to write about because everyday was like the same and not very interesting, but this week we basically taught and taught and TAUGHT! Lessons after lessons after was super sick, we were progressing V. our most positive investigator, she didn't come to church last week, so we couldn't baptize her this Saturday, so we pushed it back a day and told her we could do it Sunday after all the meetings and she said, "yeah." So that's what we did, she got was a special baptism. My comp did the ordnance, he was super nervous because my comp is smaller than she is and she didn't think my comp could do it. But he did it...after 3 times, the first 2 times she didn't go down completely under but you know what they say the 3rd time is the charm man! It was super cool and she was so happy after, now we just have to wait to confirm her this upcoming Sunday. Now we are planning a temple trip to go with her to do baptisms for dead, so right now things are looking really good! Right now we are teaching her family as well. Her mom, A is super positive and so is her dad, R.  I remember one lesson we taught the word of wisdom and guess what.......they have dropped coffee and beer for good. It's amazing to know that they are willing to follow the commandments! A. was able to be at her daughters baptism and she loved it as this week we are going to place a baptism date with her as well. They are amazing!!!

A funny story to tell you all, is that one day it was raining super hard, and I forgot the keys in the house so what did we do.....climbed the roof and hopped down to get was super ghetto but we did it. Kinda funny because we got super wet. My comp was kinda bugged because we got super wet but what can you do right...hahahaha

I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Yo fam,

How's it going......well this week is changes and I don't have any! I will be staying with my hijo in Armenia, so that was pretty cool to hear because we have a lot of work to do. We have to finish what we started, and with our 12 fechas we have a lot of work to do, definitely got my work cut out for me! Trying to finish strong, giving it everything for the Lord! This is the last transfer which means we have to go harder than we ever have!

Well, this week was super good. We have been working super hard with our investigators, and have one that is super positive named V, and her family. She is awesome and is ready to get baptized, we had a fecha with her this Saturday, but she didn't come on Sunday so we have to push the date a week. Kinda of a bummer but we just have to keep working with her and her parents. Her parents are really positive as well......We had a lesson with them that was so spiritual I wanted to cry because the spirit was sooooo strong! I was on Interchanges with Elder Henriquez, my DL, in this lesson, They expressed how they didn't feel good in any church and their daughter lights up when she talks to us, it was super cool. We are teaching them both and their daughter, hopefully this change we can baptized the whole family! 

We need to work super hard and be 100% obedient! This week was kinda ugly to see in the sacrament meeting, we had 66 people show up when it should be like more than 100. The ward needs a lot of help and support and its hard when nobody really knows what they are doing! But thats good because its taught me a ton of patience! I love Armenia

Well, I love this gospel, I have seen so many miracles happen because me and Elder Batz are obedient. I believe if we were not obedient than we couldn't have seen these. The lesson in the mission is to always be obedient even when we don't understand, the Lord doesn't want us to understand, he just wants us to be obedient. Because we are not gonna understand everything, but thats where faith comes in! A cool lesson that I have learned! 

Well the mission is coming and going super fast, so right now I have to make every moment count, and give it everything I have. I want to finish saying I gave it everything I had!! Love you guys and I hope you have a great week!

Hey what's up everybody? This week was super cool, just trying to stay as busy as I possibly can so the time can pass by faster! I just trying to get them blessings. The mission is the best! Living the dream....always....LETS GO!

Well this week was a week of constant travel. We had to go to San Salvador for a dentist appointment for my comp, ROOT CANAL! I was pretty sad because he told me it was a constant throbbing pain, but he is all good now. So that was pretty cool to see the city again, I love San Salvador, I could see the Cima from where we were at. 

Well, as far as working goes...we are doing super well with our 11 baptismal dates we have for right now!! We are teaching a young girl named V., she's 18 and she is super pilas, aka ready to get baptized!! Its funny because the whole time we thought she was a member because we don't know very many people. But a member said, "Elder, you need to baptize her because she's not a member."  We were like, "Oops, alright!" and were on it hahaha! She's awesome, she already has 2 attendances. 

Our first lesson with her was super sick, she accepted everything and has no doubts of the church....she said, "I like your church because the teachers always focus on one subject at a time and don't always change the subject. I feel good she said and I want to be apart of this church. I believe its true!!" WOW......I didn't know how to respond because you know as a missionary you are always used to the rejections, but when something like this happens you need time to respond because you are speechless. It was awesome, this 27th of may she will be baptized.!! 

Yesterday we had ward conference, it was pretty cool, but a lot people don't come because of problems the ward has had in the past, basically it was an hour of listening to the stake president macheting the members. It was awesome and we were laughing the whole time. The ward needs a lot of organization and good leaders that are willing to work, but little by little we are getting there. Armenia is growing and turning around again!!

Love you guys! Keep the faith, read the scriptures, choose the right, no greater happiness than that!! The best way to teach the gospel is to live it!! Da el ejemplo!!

May 8th - I LOVE MY MOMMA!!

Yo fam, 

Yo, what's up everybody? This week was pretty cool, a lot of things happened. And apparently I'm 21's kinda weird. But I can drink legally, hahaha... VEGAS BABY! 

Last Monday, we went to a American Restaurant called Buffalo, its not Buffalo Wild Wings, it's not the same but it had some good burgers. We went there and the employees sang to was funny and gave me a slice of cake for free....can't really complain. It was pretty good.....there is not much good cake and ice cream here in this country. After my comp bought me some ice cream and gave me a sick watch that he already had...its nice and has a tan leather band. He loves me!

For my birthday I was on interchanges with Elder H. my DL. It was cool, all we did was work and we worked HARD.  Just what I wanted for my bday. I nice long hard working day...after he bought me a pizza, nice guy! My district is the best!

Elder B. and I found 10 new investigators this week. It was super sick because that was our goal and we fulfilled it! So we are constantly busy which is how I like it. We have a sick family that we are currently teaching they are named S. and E., they have a daughter who is on a mission in Honduras, but they are not married or baptized. We need to fix that. We had a nice discussion about eternal families and baptism and they are pumped and have desires to be baptized and get married. We have date for the 3 of June! Working is going really good right now!

I just wanna give a shout out to my beautiful mother for giving birth to me....I know it was not easy, hahaha! But here we are and I am so grateful for you and everything you have taught me to be the best I can be. I love you forever Momma and I cant wait to see you Sunday!! last time!

Yo fam, 

This week was super sick! Things in Armenia are doing a lot better and the work is getting better every week. We had some cool things happen this week....

So our baptism that we had planned...................HAPPENED! Yeah buddy! E. was so prepared it was so awesome. As you can see in the pics she is tiny. Her family is so great, they are fully active again because of her. Little children have some power I don't know what, but its amazing. They were all so happy. Elder B. did the ordinance, it was cool because it was his first time doing it in the mission. So he was over the moon, he was pumped. She got confirmed on Sunday as well, So its official she's a member of the church.!!! Another one bites the dust.....haha. 

This week was super good, we found like 8 news this week which was cool because everyday we are constantly busy teaching and helping. It's just the way I like it man....keeping me busy. The time flies by so fast its unreal....I cant believe I will be Skype again soon. Its unreal. 

Armenia is progressing nicely, we just got to be on top of everything. The ward needs a lot of help but I love it, it makes me humble and see the greater picture, Armenia is great and I love it here!!

Living the dream!!!!
