Trisom Week

Christmas PJs
Monday, January 26, 2015

Well to start this past week has been pretty crazy. But I will explain myself. To start with on Monday we had a hard day. It was good though because we had a Family Home Evening with our land lady. She is the one of my favorite members here. She is super nice all the time. :) It was good.

Tuesday was interesting because Elder Ledesma and I had to go to San Fernando for a new missionary training. It was fun and good to see everyone. I also got my package with PJ's from GnG Christensen. Thank you so much!!!! Also big thank you to the Clark family I got their package as well. :) The hard part about the day is we had to get up early that morning and teach a lesson at 7am because our investigator didn't have another time available. haha It was good though. :)

Wednesday was a good day of work. We got a lot done but it was also a sad day because Elder Marcantano got a call that night letting him know that he is going home. :( He has had 4 surgeries for his ingrown toe nail and the mission department made the call for a medical release. So Thursday morning we put him on a bus going to Manila and now Elder Talisa and my companion are in a trisom. Super sad to see him go.

Thursday we went to work with our new companion. :) We have had a lot of fun in the trisom. We just work and laugh and then work some more. haha All in all it was a good day.

Friday we worked in both areas and got a lot done for it. We found a new investigator in Elder Talisa's area and then taught his recent convert. It was a fun day and we did get good things done.

Saturday was a hard day for us. We kept going to all our appointments and couldn't teach because we didn't have anyone with us and we can't teach girls unless there is a male with us as well. Super hard when you can't teach. But it was still good to visit them and see how they are doing.

Sunday was awesome because even though we couldn't really teach this whole week our investigators came to church. It amazes me every time I watch the Lord move his work even when we struggle though a week. The rest of our day was hard but everyone here is still smiling because even though it's hard the Lord is in it.

Well that's all for this week. I love you all. Mahl Kita!!!

Excerpt from Letter to Mission President

For my studies this past week I have been reading a lot from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. It’s interesting to compare the visit Christ had to the Americas and his teachings in the New Testament. They are super interesting. Something specific that I liked while I was reading in Mark was in chapter 7 verse 15. Christ states that what we eat or drink does not defile us but rather what we say and do. He further explained that evil actions come from within and so we should be more concerned with what comes out of our mouths rather than what goes in.
