Dear Family and Friends.


Just a final few words to send off this week. First of all I thank my heavenly father for the past amazing 18 months he has given me in his service. I have learned more in the past year and a half, then I think I had in the previous 19 years. I thank everyone whose supported me during this time, for your enocuraging words each week (and sorry for not always responding) and more than all for your prayers. I thank my amazing parents for writing me everyweek and picking me up with their inspiring letters when I was feeling discouraged. Thank you for your guys example, love and prayers.

I would like to bear my testimony that I know that this is the one and only true church on the face of the Earth. I know that man cannot be happy, in this life nor in the next, without the covenants of the temple and the living of the commandments. I know Joseph Smith did truly see God the Father and the Son. ANd I Know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet of God, I sustain him fully and love him dearly. I Know all these things through the power of the HOly Ghost. I have seen miracles and tender mercies that I cannot deny. I know that Christ lives. I know it is all true.

Dear Familia and Friends.


This week, as every one of the last couple of weeks, flew by way too fast! Never the less it was still a great week of contacting opportunities, finding new investigators, and exploring new portions of our area. This week we were able to find Violeta and her daughter, they were another miracle thorugh street contacting in a park. Then we also found Nancy and Frank, nancy is the sister of a less active sister weve been teaching and frank is her husband. They are great, super receptive, and the both have the plan of going to church the following sunday with Nancys sister. We also were able to find again our investigator Evelyn, who had been super busy with her studies and work. SHe also gave us great news that she found a better paying job in which she doesnt have to work sundays!! Shes amazing, really and even though we hadnt been able to meet with her for a couple of weeks, she had been reading her book of mormon diligently. SHe accepted a new baptismal date in January. Though a series of member referrals, and street contacts, we were also able to explore new parts of our area. Especially one called Cachiche, which is mostly dirt and smal little homes, but really receptve people. We were also able to find less active members there! It really showed us that our area is HUGE! Well it was a good week. The sun was a little nicer to us this week, so that was good too.

Also.. HAPPY ANIVERSARY MOM AND DAD!!! Woooooo 25 years!!!!!

Well heres to another great week of opportunities!

This was a great week, and it finished off great as well with a a Saturday trip to the temple with our converts and rescues, and then the Sunday First Presidency Christmas Devotional. The Christmas spirit really began to fill the air this week, with the beginning of the Christmas initiative, Ilumina el Mundo. We were able to begin contacting with the Christmas pass along cards, and people are really alot more receptive this time of the year and weve had  some great contacts. We were also able to find 6 new investigators this week: Cesar and Marta, Rosario, Cecibel, Javier and Piero, all great receptive people were excited to keep visiting and helping to progress. 
WEll this saturday was a very special as we were able to take various recent converts, from our program and from the other program in our ward. The sun came out shining down on the sparkling temple, and just walking around the grounds with everyone, the spirit was so strong. Then as all our converts lined up outside the temple, they mentioned to us their excitement and nervousness at the same time. But then when they came out they all shared their amazement and the spirit they felt. Something changes in a member when they enter the temple for the first time, their eyes are opened a bit more and their testimonies blossom. It really was a blessing to be present in that moment. I love the temple and know that it is the house of the Lord, where he comes to visit.

love you all!

This was a good, yet short week. Due to our trip to Lima for the leadership training on Tuesday, this week flew by even faster than usual. Nevertheless, we worked hard to make up for the 2 days of travel that we were outside our area. We were able to find a new family! Its comprised of the daughter of our rescued sister, and her non-member couple, who have a little 3 month old baby girl. They are very young, both 18 (though they look alot younger), but are both willing to make all the necessary changes to make sure their daughter grows strong in the gospel. They both demostrated this desire by attending church this sunday and accepting our invitations to continue reading the book of mormon (she had shared a bit with him previously) and being able to prepared to be married. They are great, they are very young but i know God has a plan for them. This week we were able to see the Progress of our investigator, Betsy, as shes been reading and praying more fervently, and was able to feel the spirit very strongly at the Elders baptismal service saturday. She now has a stronger desire then ever to preapre herself to be baptized aswell this next month of december. We were able to see many fruits of our labors sunday, when almost all the less active members weve been teaching showed up early for sacrament meeting. Yesterday, hno Julio, who was baptized a couple of weeks ago with his family, received the Priesthood! We saw his after he was ordained and asked him how he felt. He replied that he felt really good, but now he knew he had a great responsibility and that the next step was preparing for the Melchezidec Priesthood. The way he said it, the spirt just testified that he knew and understood his convenants with God. Really this was a great week because the spirit guided us and testified in countless moments.

Well this is a great week because on Saturday were going to the temple with recent converts from ICA!! Woo and even though well have to leave at midnight on friday to get there early, and we probably wont sleep alot on the bus ride, we are so excited!!!!!! The temple is the best and its really something that strengthens the testimony of a recent convert, and all members in general.
