Week 12

Hey there! 

This has been a great week! Very spiritual and uplifting! 

Yesterday, we had SIX investigators at church! It was weird having that many more people, it was surprisingly noticeable! There were over 60 people at the Spanish branch yesterday and it was way cool to feel the Spirit that much stronger.  :)   I don't want to give away too many details because I want to write about it in my letter haha. But last night we had a "cottage meeting". It is when missionaries bring investigators to the Mission President's home and there are some recent converts there that share their story and experiences. It was amazing how diverse every one of them were! I loved hearing about it, and it reminded me of my baptism a little over two years ago. I cannot believe how far I've come because of this church. Just imagine - where would I be without the church? Definitely not serving a mission, haha. I am so grateful for this opportunity to invite others to come unto Christ. This next Saturday we had a baptism scheduled, but I think we are going to have to change it because she hasn't talked to her husband about it yet, and we don't want any problems starting. Hopefully, Elder Robles and I will have a baptism this month!

I cannot believe how much a mission really works you! We are literally working FULL time, from 6:30 in the morning to 10:30 at night we are doing things that can help us invite others to come unto Christ. It is pretty amazing now that I think about it, I'm very excited to change people's lives for the better. It is such an amazing sight to see people change and receive that light that they have been missing. 

I have this investigator named "M", and he is a pretty heavy drinker and loves coffee. We taught him the Word of Wisdom this past week and he had the hardest time accepting it during the lesson. We told him to pray and promised him that he would receive an answer that he will know that the Word of Wisdom is a commandment of God given to us to protect us from harmful substances. We visited him the next day to see how he was doing and he has this alcohol stand once you walk in to his home, but something was missing, THE ALCOHOL! We asked where he put it, and he told us that it is all in the garbage! He is trying his best to follow all of the commandments of God and the commitments we give him, it is truly a blessing to watch him change before our eyes.

There's not too much else to say, other then what I will write in the letter home today. I love you guys so much and thank you for your support!

Kids - help out around the house! 
Choma - Keep being a good boy puppy! 
Tucker - Meh... 
             Sierra, TUCKER IS A NOOB! 

By the way... How is Tucker handling "indoor" life? Does he run away from dad all the time still or what? Anyways, I love you guys so much, and I hope that you are all doing great! See you next time!  :)
