8 months in the mission! Holy crap
time out here goes by so fast. 8 months ago I said by to all yaz and went to Mexico
and now here we are! In a couple of months I’ll be home! I heard that the
second year goes by even faster than the first and I have no idea how that
could even be possible but I also feel like there is a whole lot to do out here
and not enough time in the day to do it!!!
This area is receiving blessing
after blessing!! we went to an investigators house and usually it’s just and
old lady and her daughter but her daughter doesn’t live there she told us that
her husband pick up the book of Mormon when he got home and started reading it
and then he asked her about it and she explained about us and asked if we could
come over and we have not even met with them but she said that he is going to
stop working Sundays to go to church! We have a date to meet with them
tonight!!! I’m so pumped!!!
Also this week a couple of our
investigators got baptized! They are young men and they are so excited to be in
the ward but one of them will not wear a white shirt. He will go to church
early and is ready to get the priesthood but really really doesn’t want to wear
the white shirt! But nbd we can’t do anything about it haha but they both said
that they want to serve missions! That will be awesome!!! One of them it will
be like really soon because he turns 18 in January!
sorry this week I didn’t learn any
new acrobatics... but I’m pretty sure my abs are trying to pop out.obvi it’s
not there yet but there tryin!!! Don’t tell anyone... but ya I’m getting skinny
and I feel like my body isn’t ready for it hahah but its chill.... every fat man’s
but ya everything in the mission is
going great I’m just tired like all the time but just keep working until can’t
work anymore and then sleep a little and be a little tired and not want to wake
up but do it anyways and work even harder and learn a whole bunch and then do
the things we need to and teach and walk a lot and then teach again and then be
really tired but that’s the life! the missionary dream because the thing about
it is you forget your tired until the day is over because you are having so
much fun and then to be let by the spirit to know which door to knock and then
just trying to project so much love for these people as representative of Jesus
Christ. I’ll tell you what it’s worth every single minute that I’ve been out
here. Even though sometimes is hard. I’ve never learned so much and been able
to help people in this way. I just want you all to know I’m a very tired yet
very happy Elder!!
So first of all I’m just going to
say that I took my pants in today to get a couple inches taken off! Woo! And it’s
going so good!! I eat so good and feel so good too!! Ok most the time I eat
good... sometime I go Gandolfos and make eggs bacon with cheese and cream
cheese and bimbo bread... oh sauce... its good.
Anyways this week we will have
couple of baptisms... they are a couple of teenagers that are so ready. One of
them already said that he wants to go on a mission and he’s so excited for his
baptism. And the members are so excited for them also! We are working hard here
and it’s so nice when the members pitch in! They are starting to love us and we
get invited to dinner every single day and we are always so full! Sometimes
they give us dessert to take home mmmmmmmmm delicioso
This week also the pres changed some
of the rules in the mission and it has made this so much nicer and easier to be
in the mission. So much less stress and I feel like these last couple of days
have really been payin off. Every week in this district there is a baptism and
this little town of Zacapu is the best in the mission. Everyone wants to be
here! We totally got the ghetto side but its chill we will keep working hard!!
I just want you all to know that I
feel so good out here and that everything is going so great!!!
This week has been sooooo goood!!! Guys
I’m learning how to do cool things!!! This last two week I learned how to do a
hand stand and how to do a front and back hand spring!!! We have 30 mins of exercise
every day and my comp did gym before the mish!!(He had time because he’s the
oldest missionary in mission other than the old people.) He’s like almost 28
like dang. But ya it’s pretty sweet!!!
Yesterday we got some references and
there was like 8 people living in the house and somebody said ya I’m 20 years
old and I thought in my head I thought wow he’s old one day I’ll be 20! And
then he said he was born in 95 and I thought oh shoots I was born in 96! Guys I’m
finally old and I just want to be young and not have any responsibly and just
live life like a champion. But what evs I guys I’ll just have to grow up. haha
jk I’m not going to grow up ever! Ok I’m rambling in my head but the lesson was
so awesome with them and they are going to come to church the next week!! I’m so
also we had a 17 year old kid one of
our investigators go to FSY I think it’s the same as EFY but anyways he had an
experience of a hand on his shoulder to comfort him during EFY and he really
has a tough life so I’m glad he has made this choice. He took out all of his earrings
and he had like 5 its awesome he is changing...
I had a lot of prayers answered this
week and it has just been so great.
I love you all and I hope everything
is going good!!!
