August 24, 2016

It is crazy how fast time is flying by!!! Also no I don't have any plans and also I was wondering when could I start at WLF could it be that Monday when I get home??

Yes that would be awesome to have Tyson and Caylee over with the kids. Everything else is going great. The way this week works out it is going to go by so fast because we have exchanges for the next 3 days basically so that is going to be crazy! Also I am going to send a package home today hopefully and then everything else I will send home with Sister Palfreyman.  Also I was wondering if I could use some of the money on my home card to pay for a dry cleaned suit( it is the one I am wearing home)! 

We put someone else on date last week. Her name is Cindy and she is awesome. The only thing is that her husband doesn't want her to get baptized. He is okay with her taking lessons but not being baptized so we will see how things will go this next little bit!

Thank you and I will talk to you soon! Love you and have a great day!

Everything is going pretty good. The weeks seem to still be flying by. This past week was good.  We had some success but not too much. Our investigators didn't come to church this week so that was a bummer. They are still on date though so we are still hoping for the best with them. We went to Chaco Canyon so here are some pictures from that. 

Elder Oakley is getting married in North Carolina now, so he is having an open house in Utah on the 9 of September I am pretty sure.

August 8, 2016

Everything is going really great we had a pretty good week and we put someone else on date Saturday. His name is Rodrigo and I briefly mentioned him last week, but he is on date for September 24th. He is a pretty elect guy, His desire to learn is great and when we went over there this past week we asked him to pray and after he asked us why is it every time that he prays with us there we make him cry. It was so good to see him recognizing the spirit so strong and I cant wait to see where things go with him. Also we had Vanessa and Luis on date again for September 17th and they also came to church yesterday too, so another awesome miracle. 

On Sunday I was able to teach the Gospel Doctrines class on Alma 32-34 it went pretty good, i think, but it has gotten a lot easier to teach in Spanish that is for sure! Also I am going to send a package home and if you could just put it in my room unopened that would be great and it just has all my letters in there and also I am going to send one home my winter stuff in another and Sister Palfreyman is coming up on the weekend of the 9th and said she will bring up the rest for me.

This past week was pretty good. We went on an exchange with the Dulce Elders so that was good. I was with Elder Greenland and we had a pretty good day. Our people that were on date fell off because they didn't come to church yesterday, but on the bright side of it all they did accept a date which is more than what they have done before. So you always have to have a optomistic out look on things because if you don't then the mission would really suck haha! 

But we had an amazing lesson with one of our investigators on Saturday, Rodrigo.  He is a super funny guy and as we were teaching about the Book of Mormon and a little about the plan of salvation. During the lesson he was asking quite a few questions and when we showed him what happens after we die he got super excited and when he prayed at the end it was a super short, simple prayer but WOW was it powerful. It even brought tears to his eyes. It was for sure one of the best lessons that I have had on my mission.

So not too much happened this past week. Wee put someone else on date for the 27th of August. Her name is Maria Chacon. She is a super sweet lady and she knows that the Book of Mormon is true and the only thing that will really be keeping her back is coming to church. So we are looking forward to her. Vanessa and Luis, they didn't come to church this past week, but we have a lesson with them tonight so we will see how why they didn't. It was a miracle that we were able to see them everyday this week besides Friday. It was really cool to be able to see them that often and most of the days it was just but accident.

I am staying here and I am pretty excited for that and the branch is as well so that is good.  I am still with Elder Mabry for these next 6 weeks. I also got called as the district leader for the next 6 weeks, I thought that was kind of weird to get called for my last transfer but I am excited for it too because in my district are all Elders and so that means I get to go on a lot of exchanges to make the time go by a lot faster so that will be nice. 

This past week was really good. We put Vanessa and Luis on date for August 27th. They were the investigators that came to church last Sunday, which they really enjoyed. They really liked how they were able to comment on the lessons and not just listen to a sermon. We found a new investigator, Rodrigo. He is a super cool guy. He was a referral from the Hammond Elders here and he has a huge desire to find more of that joy and peace in his life so we are excited to see where it goes with him. Besides that that was our week it was pretty good all around.

Also Rubio, Castro, and Sanchez came by on saturday to stop by and say hi! It was really good to see them again and I am pretty excited because they are all going to school in Utah!   Sanchez is living in Farmington, NM and Rubio and Castro are going to LDS Buisness college

This past week was full of miracles which made the week great! Last Sunday we got a referral from a member and the family was one that we just dropped about 3-4 weeks earlier. The reason why was because they would not keep appointments and were not progressing. So Elder Mabry and I were talking about what the best thing to do was and we came to the conclusion that if we plan for them and they are home then that means God wants us to see them, so we first had to do our part. On Tuesday we go over and their car was home and they were home. We were able to teach them and set better expectations with them. They then told us to come back that same Friday, so we came back and they were there again. Prior they wouldn’t really keep appointments at all, so we invited them to come to church, and they have never came to church in the past 2-3 years they have been taught on and off. We were sitting in church on Sunday and right after the opening prayer they came in and sat down by us and stayed ALL 3 hours of church it was really great experience and the branch did very well in fellow shipping them to the branch. We also had another investigator come to church and she is the sister in-law of our Branch Mission Leader and so it was probably one of the best days at church that I have had in a long time. We also had some members go out and see some less-active families and they aren’t even their home teacher so that was really cool as well.

This was a great week for us and thank you for everything and here is a picture from this past week!

It is crazy today i got an email about this program that they came out with to prepare you to go home haha

Everything is doing good. Nothing again happened this past week. It has been kind of slow but at least staying busy. Everything else is going good. Transfers are in 2 weeks so not that far off! It is crazy how fast time is flying out here. I cant believe it!

Also by the way on Sunday I was fasting about college and what I should do and I got the prompting to go to USU for the first little bit and then go to SUU so there was a little change to that and I don't know if it is too late or what? But thought that I would let you know! 

Also here are a few pictures
