Well well. This week was AMAZING!!!!!!! Really my companion and I still cant belive all the things that happened this week.


WOW. This week was incredible. So many miracles I dont even know where to begin. On monday we were able to see the miracle of being in the right place at the right time. When the sister who was going to accompany us had an emergency at the last minute, we were left without any one to accomanpy us. The by chance we past a CRs house and asked if we could have a lesson at her house. So we invited our investigators Fernanda and Nelida to come. It was an amazing lesson and Fernanda accepted to be baptized! Then just by chance, one of the Crs friends walked by and said she had felt like she was just ment to stop by. So we taught her and shes great! Then on tuesday also visiting a less active sister we were able to find her frined sonia, who also just happened to be there. and shes amazing and accepted our invitation to be baptized. And wait theres more. Really to many miracles. On wednesday we visited nelida and fernanda again and asked them if they had prayed about the book of mormon. Nelida said there was one night where she was tired and felt prompted to read and pray. She said she just got the stongest feeling after that it was all true and this was the one true church. Then we asked Fernanda who said she had been in a catholic church that week and felt the impression she should pray and ask if the book of mormon was true. SO she did and something told her to get out of the cathedral that moment because the mormon church was the only true one! What a blessing really that God has let us be present in miraculous moments like these. Then on thursday during our service at an elderly womans house, her grandson came to talk to us wondering about the church. We taught him the resotraion and he accepted to be baptized too! Then on friday we street conacting a sister, katy from her window and were ableto find her too and have a lesson to teach her and her husband this week aswell. On Friday night on an intercambio with Hermana Perreyra we were also able to find Martin, the brother of a less active sister. He was great and accepted our invitaion to be baptised. Really and crazy miracle filled week. I testify the Lord prepares the way, and his work. He has blessed us greatly and we will continue working hard to see miracles and the fruits of our labors. 

thursdays peruvian independence day. SO happy birthday Peru. Fireworks go off every night, its crazy.


Well thats it folks, hope all is well and keep working our your family history!

Greeting from ICA. Yes the sun as we speak is blazing outside.

Well this week was a genuine surprise. We were both excited to work hard and hit the ground running this new transfer but had to work thorugh a few difficulties. one that we were only in our area about 2 full days this week because of trainings and travel to Lima and back. But never the less we did all we could and relied on the lord when all our back ups to our back up plans fell thorugh. We were able to find two new investigators this week, Fausto, the husband of a less active sister weve been teaching. Hes great and has read the book of mormon before! Then we also found Flor, who is the sweetest ladY i think Ive ever met. She was reluctant to expect many of our inviations because of her catholic background, but when she offered the closing prayer The spirit was SO STRONG. We just stayed there in silence for a few moments because we knew she could feel it and we then asked her how she felt and she said she felt peace like none other. She recognized the spirit and I know that something is very special about her. 

This week with the little time we had in our area I was able to get to know San Isidro 2 a bit better. And may I add that its huge!! Also that the limit of our area is the sand dunes..isnt that crazy? SOmetimes were just walking in the hot sun during the day, right under the sand dunes and I really question if im still in Peru or if im in Egypt.

Well thats all for now folk! Love you all

Greetings from the south!
Thats right folks after 9 months in the capital, Lima, I have made my way down south to ICA! Ica is like a small city in the middle of the desert, 6 hours south of Lima. Its really pretty and theres sand dunes and an oasis smack in the middle. Im really excited, Especially because my new companion is the best as well. Shes Hna Lawrence from Wyoming, and this is her 2nd transfer, not that you could tell because she speaks great spanish and just talks with everyone. Im excited to see miracles with her here in San Isidro.

This past week in Jardin flew by, as we were able to find a bunch of new invesigators through street contacts. We went to the temple with recent converts too.  also many of our investigatores and less active members made it to sacrament meeting. We were able to find Salvadora and Carlos (a family) and Sandy, all because they told us they had been looking for some spiritual help and then we coincidently contacted them. I know it wasnt a coincidence, because there arent coincidences in the Lords work. I can testify that he puts people in our path that he prepares sometimes we just have to search and talk with everybody.

Well thats about it for now. Theres a mexican food restaurant here in Ica and were exctited to go! Love you all!

Let freedom ring from AMERICA to Lima!!!!!!!!!!

Dear friends, familia and countrymen.


Happy Freedom day oh great nation! My companions and I are going to celebrate eating pizza, and baking good old patriotic cookies. Happy 4th of July to all!

Let me start by saying that the mission is just the best and I think everyday I see the great difference in myself. Before the mission, I wasnt that shy but I wouldnt ever imagine that Id be where I am now, talking with everyone. In particular Id like to share an experience we had this week. On the way home from the multizone conference we took the train. It was very full!! To the level that i had to literally push my companions in. Then when we got in, tightly packed like sardines, I heard something tell me ¨preach to them all¨, ofcourse first i thought this to be a little absurd. But i followed the prompting and did it. In aloud voice I introduced myself and my companions and explained who we were and our message of the restauration. It really was a marvelous experience, many didnt pay attention, but those who did I know felt something. 

This was another great week. We were able to recognize that sometimes we just have to be patient, and let people take their time. Conversion is a process. We were able to realize that two of our investigatores needed more time to strengthen their testimonies. THey told us and we realized it aswell. This week we continued working with our 15 less active families that the bishop has assigned us and continued contacting everyone! The spirit was very strong during this weeek and we were able to recognize how weve grown as a companionship.

we also went to the temple!

Esta semana tuvimos una actividad de historia familiar con toda nuestra zona! Aqui esta la zona San Juan con nuestros libritos ¨mi familia¨.


This week in particular we focused as a companionship to be able to contact a lot more people in the steet, we had been contacting people before but we realized we could be talking with alot more people. It really was something that strengthened my testimony and helped me to remember that I truly dolove the gospel and want as many people as possible to come unto it! This week really got me thinking as well of the importance of being on time. Our investigator who has been progressing, Juliana, this sunday showed up about 15 mins late to sacrament meeting. Which made my companions and I said because she couldnt participàte of the sacrament. However it got me thinking about how we usually show up 10 to 15 mins late to our set appointments with her. If we cant arrive on time for an appointment with an investigator, how can we expect them to be on time? I realize to demononstrate the importance of being punctuals, we need to give the example first. So thats a goal for the week, be more on time! This week we were able to find 3 new investigators, Mayra (whose husband we have planned to find tonight), Marcial (the pareja of a MA CR), and Teodolio, the father or a street contact. They were all a miracle to find.

lots of love
