Crazy week

Well This week went by very fast!
But one experience would be with one investigator named Pedro when we went to teach him lesson 3 or the gospel of Jesus Christ. Which is Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. And after that he was saying that he's only ever been presented in the Catholic church but never baptized, "When can I get baptized? And what do I have to do to get baptized?" and we were both like oh wow! cuz I've never heard that before! Then we were filling out his Record and found that they are living together without being married, and we were like, oh yeah you kinda have to get married to... "yeah that's fine we can do that."!!! That for sure people never do that! So that was a good lesson!
Then we were planning a Baptism this week for Franco, but in the last minute on friday night right before his interview he got scared because his grandma was pressuring him too much and so they just left to Conce, but we have an appointment tomorrow so everything will be okay. Cuz I Know that this is true and everytime he talks to us he feels the spirit and wants to do it :)
But that's what I remember from this week,
I hope you all have a great one! and remember to "Do Good"TM

Fathers day!

Well this week was a really good one!
Getting to know my companion Elder Beeston, from Mesa Arizona.
But something cool about him is he is the only member in his family.
And got baptized only 1 year before his mission. and now has 20 1/2 months in the mission.
The house in the background and so now we are 4 gringos in the same house again for me! 
The week was good cuz well we repased by some people that Elder Souza didn't want to! And now want to listen and so we had 12 news this week! And 4 with a baptism date!! yeah yeah!! It was a good one!
And in one of these lessons that we had was on Fathers Day so we talked a little about Fathers that we have on earth and also in Heaven.
And I'm so grateful for them both! They have both Helped me so much in my life to become the person I am today. I really have been blessed to have such a great Dad, and for us all a Father who loves us all!
Thanks ya'll! Take care! Have a great Week! And always...

Another Cambio gone!

This week was another good one in being the last week for my companion!
Saying goodbye to people and things like that!
But we also got our goals! And everything and in his very last lesson was probably the best that we have ever had and we put someone with a baptism date! Then a lot of people went to church! :)
Saying goodbye to Souza! see you in Brazil! 
Elder Regis also is going! his first comp was Elder Smoot! woo!
Then I've been with Elder Abad for a day now! And we went to go help Elder Hollist last night and had a ton of success! Finding and everything! But tomorrow I will be getting my new companion Elder Beaston to work for the next 6 weeks! 
Just got to keep going!

Zone Conference/Temple Trip/Playa!!

Oh wow! this week was amazing! 
To start off we had zone conference. And well that is just always a blast! With the spiritual information! The games! The contests! And the food! But the coolest part for me this time was the interview the Presidente Catala. We were in a small bishops office, with a nice space heater. We talked about a couple of things about the sector the house and the comp AS always, but then we talked about me... which was cool :) and how I can be better. :) then after we finished with a prayer he came around the desk and told me, "Confío mucho en usted, va a ser un gran líder en este misión, pero primeramente voy a probar usted ;) " which was really cool :) And then I told him that I was up for the task and he smiled which made me feel really good :)  
Translation: "I trust you very much, you will be a great leader in this mission, but first I will try you. Or you will be tried"
This is Elder Hollist from St. Anthony! His bishop is my uncle!
Then on Saturday we had a temple trip with the ward to Conce! And then we went to the beach to eat and to have some fun! :) 
On the way there we played Catan in the back of the bus! :)

Yeah yeah! 
The group for the temple! President Catala had like a fireside for us :) 
Yeah! They said it will be done in about 10 months! :) 
Like I said I promised pics so here they are! haha 
Lunch on the beach with the ward!
