JANUARY 9, 2017

So I can't see the photos when you share them through google...haha but I saw like a couple of them cause they were popping up and it looked like you had lots of fun! I wish I could have gone with you guys! hahaha my  cheeks are suuuuper sore from the bike. I can't wait to see snow! I'm super duper excited! But I still got a while :/

Yeah so I'm back in the House by the temple, where I entered the mission so it's fun to be back, just with new missionaries! Today we had a guy pay for us at Walmart at the Guy was like talking with us and said "I need you to take this money, people did this for my kid all the time in the mission, you have no idea how much this means to me" and he gave us each 20 bucks and it touched my heart a ton just all the blessings I've recieved out here. And you all have been awfully generous with me. My heart is FULL of gratitude to everyone who has blessed me with the Things I have. Thank you for everything you and dad have done for me! Love you tons mom!:)

 I hope Disneyland was Awesome! Super Jealous of you guys! I've also heard that Utah is getting DUMPED on with a ton of snow! Also, thanks Adam for sending that awesome gift and book haha I loved it! That's super cool! Lucky you guys! It's not too bad it's like Chilly in the mornings and warm in the afternoon. This week has been great! The Area I'm in is like 95 percent Hispanic and 5 percent white. It's great! There's a ton of work. We've been trying to find solid investigators, we can find a lot but like most of them seem to not answer the door when we are there. Haha it's a little disappointing. 

Me and Elder Ramon are killin it biking the streets of downtown Mesa. It's super funny all the stuff that happens. He's from Mapleton and he's super funny, he's waiting for his visa here in Mesa til he goes to Mexico. 

But we are teaching these two awesome families! One is named the A_______ Family and the other is the L________Family. The A_______ Family was a referall from the Lights of Christmas at the temple and they are so great! We've read in the Book of Mormon with them and they came to church! It was awesome they loved it and we are going to be having lessons with them as much as possible! They go to their Mom's house every other week. But I love that Fam.

The L_______ Family is a family that we also have been teaching, we taught them the plan of salvation and focused on priesthood authority and on Baptism and they totally understood it! At the end all the kids were like "I wanna get baptized!" Haha it was great. 

I read this Scripture in one of my personal studies and I just love this scripture it's in Alma 34 

32 For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors.

33 And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed. 

I know that this is our time to prove to our loving Heavenly Father that we are worthy to live in his presence! I know that we must humble ourselves and repent to be found worthy to be in he presence of our Heavenly Father. I love being here trying my best to help others reach that goal! And I pray and hope that at the last day I'll be up there with you all in the Celestial kingdom! :)

Love you all soooo much! Have a great week!:)

JANUARY 2, 2017:

Hey Mom! Really quick they changed like a TON of Spanish Areas to bikes, so I'm going to use some of the money In my personal account to get a Bike, is that ok? Because I might be on Bike for a while and I don't think the Mission Office has any.  Thanks mom!

This week was good! The weeks are going soooo fast, I can't believe this is 2017. But hopefully I can make this next year the Best! It was a good week. We worked with some of our new investigators trying to help them keep commitments. I got Transfer News and I'm moving back to the House of my First Area! But I'm in Liahona 3rd which is the Branch that covers the Area by the Temple! Woo Wee! I'll be on Bike with Elder Ramon whose from Mapleton, UT. He's waiting for his Visa to go to Chihuahua. Poor guy hasn't gotten it yet.

I don't really know what to report.. Hahha we just have seen some miracles working with a part member family. Their names are P______ and L_____ Flores, we've been teaching them for a while and their kids and now their Cousin also is interested! So that was awesome!

I'm so grateful for the Chance that I have to be here! I truly know this is where I need to be. I know that the Holy Ghost is real and that his voice is ever so quite but his direction cannot be mistaken. He guides us, we just have to open our ears. Jesus Is the Christ! God is our loving Heavenly Father and loves to communicate with us through Prayer! 

26 Now, as I said concerning faith--that it was not a perfect knowledge--even so it is with my words. Ye cannot know of their surety at first, unto perfection, any more than faith is a perfect knowledge.

27 But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words.

28 Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves--It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.

I pray that we can all understand the spirit and feel him in our lives and sanctify our lives. Love you all! Make good goals!

Yes! Believe it or not I actually miss the Cold! That Fog looked crazy! Haha we've been getting a Rain around here which is pretty cool! Oh yeah! Send pics! I wanna see how Disneyland is! Hahaha yeah I've seen a couple funny ones like that lol. Yeah sure! Let's go then! I just hope it's not too expensive for us! So, I got my first one done. But then the second one they told me I have to wait until this Wednesday that comes to take the test. Thanks Mom! I'm so happy I've had challenges, because it really is just like a Big ol blessing from Heavenly Father, he makes me change so that I can be a better me. Diamonds are made under great heat and pressure. Haha that's crazy! Can't believe it! I'm actually pretty excited to see you all! ;) hahaha love you mom!

Ps the Bike I got was pretty pricey and with all the gear I needed but I was on my way walking out of Walmart with a cheaper bike and I just felt terrible and like the Holy Ghost was telling me to go and buy he better Bike. So I spent $40 more  it I can already tell it will pay off in the long run. Love you mom! Thanks so much for giving me this opportunity to be here! I hope you all are seeing blessings in your lives!
