Prayer = Strength

Hola Familia,

This week has been short since I wrote to all of you guys this past Wednesday but I am glad for the time and how fast it goes by.  This life just flies by and sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough time in my life ha ha.


Well this week was great and everything went really well and I am really enjoying the mission.  We are finally seeing some success in the Zone.  The Zone is working really hard.  I am always trying to figure out what we can do to help the missionaries in our Zone out and to make their mission a little better.  But generally everything is going great.  This week we were lucky enough to find three new investigators that we will be teaching.  Hopefully we can put a baptism date on them soon so they can prepare to be baptized.  We also are going to have another baptism this Friday if everything goes well.  Overall I love the mission.


Nothing too exciting happened this week but I just love the work.  I have gotten re-motivated and am just working like crazy.  At night I am tired but I know that the Lord is giving me the extra strength (Spanish version) that I need to be able to work in his vineyard.  I love the power of prayer (Spanish version) that I know my prayers are being answered.  This week my companion and I have been talking a ton about faith (Spanish version) and how crucial faith is I really loved Ether 12 (Spanish version).  It is a great chapter about the importance of faith.

Well this week I was able to cook some pretty epic pizzas and then some tacos yesterday ha ha.  I can just whip out pizza and tacos like nobodies business ha ha.  But I love the mission.  I have learned so much in my time here and just working on being the best person that I can be.




I love you all.  Try to renew your testimony of the Book of Mormon  and gain a deeper understanding of the book that will bring us eternal life (Spanish version) I know that it is true and is the best guide we can have in our life.

Les amo,
