Birthday and Service

Hola Familia,

Well time has just been flying by.  It is crazy to think that everything is coming to an end.  Elder Beales and I are together again for another transfer, which will be awesome.  I am so excited to be with him and see what we can do in this area. 

Well this week has been great.  I love the people here so much.  Everyone has been so nice to me and it was awesome to celebrate my birthday here with these people.  We had three cakes and we ate so much haha.  And then my package got here on Thursday, which was awesome.  Thanks family I am so grateful.  Wow, I am 20 years old haha.  That is just crazy.

Well cool experiences this week.  We were able to have some huge family home evenings (Spanish version) with a whole bunch of families.  It is so cool to see how everyone is doing.  I know that this gospel gives hope and helps people become better.  I love that about the mission.  I know that people can change, this gospel changed my life and it has helped me so much.  It gave me the second chance in my life to be a better person and I owe everything to it. 

Our investigators are doing well and I think that Puchungo, Gunar and Jeffer will all start to understand the importance of this Gospel and everything that it does for us.  They can make the decision to follow Jesus Christ (Spanish version) and be happy.  Sometimes they don’t do everything but then they can realize that the Gospel brings the happiness that we need in the life. 

This week Elder Beales and I learned how to make a window haha.  It was so fun to put up a window in a member’s house.  It was interesting to see how grateful people are when you do the littlest service (Spanish version) for them and help then out.

I know that if we try and do what Jesus would do it, our lives will be better.  I love seeing how important it is to serve other people.

I think that the biggest lesson that I learned this past week was when I understood that if we just do the things the Lord tells us we will be happy.  Sometimes we don’t do it because we don’t understand or we are being too belligerent to follow him 100 percent.  I love (Spanish version) everything so much and this Gospel will help anyone that wants to become better and wants to follow God.

Well family I love you all so much and am so grateful for everything that you all do for me.  You guys are everything to me.

I love you all,

Elder Cooley
