merry christmas everyone!!

we had a good week this week. on thursday there were some girls from utah here volunteering in a daycare. they are members and they saw us in the street and said.. sisters!! so we talked to them and invited them to do some visits with us. We split up and the two i went with were so amazing!! they didnt speak spanish but they shared there testimonies in english with an investigator and the spirit was so strong. It was just evidence that the Spirit speaks every language. It was a good day!

Saturday we did a service project as a zone. We painted a school. It was really fun. Service is always fun!! Look for ways to serve. I promise that if we arent focused on ourselves we will always be happy!!!

I have been seeing a lot of Catholic traditions in these days. Lots of posadas. They walk in the street carrying statues of the virgin Maria and other things. It is interesting and cool to see the culture. But then after we just want to teach them the restored gospel! haha. But it is interesting. Other peoples beliefs and culture. I have always loved and will always love learning about it.

Have an amazing Christmas!! remember the reason for the season and that wise men still seek him!!

la navidad viene ya.

hey!!! this is a month of miracles. Seriously. We had a baptism on Sunday. His name is Victor Manuel Efrain. He is 15 and is so awesome!! He has had such a hard life but decided to get baptized. I could just see the light of Christ shining through him at his baptism. He was so happy. So happy. I love seeing the changes people make in their lives and how it changes them forever.

I cant believe Christmas is so soon. Make it a good Christmas! Focus on Jesus Christ and how we can come closer to him in the year 2016. Start thinking of goals now and this next year will be the best one yet. I cant believe that I left to come on my mission almost a year ago. It seems like yesterday!! I love the mission with all my heart. If you are contemplating on going on a mission or not... GO. It is the most beautiful wonderful experience you will ever have in your life. But it flies by. I am making every moment of the time I have left here.

i love you all!!

Woo Hoo

Christmas is so soon!! This is the time to remember Christ and decide to change. Decide to change through him and his atonement and become better. I want to share a poem that I found in a liahona that I love!! About Christ and His Atonement.

I used to believe
That there was a hole
In Christs Atonement
That He could save everyone
Except me.

But i was wrong.
There is not one hole,
But seven.

Two holes in
His Hands
Where they nailed Him
To a cross
At the behest of those
He would die
To save,

Two holes in
His wrists
Where they ensured
The weight of His body
Would not cause
His hands
To rip through.
Before His penance
Was complete,

Two holes in
His feet
Where He stood
As a witness to all
Of God´s unyielding love
For each
Of His children,

And on hole in
His side
Where they pierced Him
To prove His work
Was done.

Seven perfect holes
In earth´s only
Perfect Man.

The perfect Atonement
To patch the holes in our lives.
His holes make us

I was wrong.
There is a
In Christ´s Atonement
For me
After all.

Chirst knows us. And loves us. He will always always help us and heal us and make us whole. I know that He lives. That through him we can become whole. But we have to decide to make His Atonement personal. Is the Atonement personal for you? If not, what do you have to do to make it personal?

I love you all!! Have a good week!!

wow!! cant believe it is already december. Christmas!! i am excited to spend Christmas here in Guatemala. It will be fun to see what they do here .I have heard that they do some pretty different things!!

This week we had a miracle. A few weeks ago we found a really positive new investigator and this past saturday we finally found him to have a second visit but this time his wife was there. So shared with them both and they are so positive! They both accepted the baptismal challenge and the wife accepted to go to church with us the next day. We were so happy!! the husband couldnt because he had to go work in another city. So we called her on Sunday morning to go to church with her and she was ready to go! and she went! it was a miracle because people always say they are going to go and then they dont. But she went and stayed all three hours. with her son. They both loved being in church and learning!! It was amazing. Also a teenager that is preparing to get baptized came for the second time! and i know we saw these miracles because we made a goal with my companion that has to do with fasting. and we started this last week. fasting is amazing. i know that we can see miracles in our lives and the lives of others if we fast with faith and with a purpose.

Christmas season is here and we are all thinking about receiving gifts but more importantly giving. today my mission president said something that really stuck out to me. he said that the only thing that we can give to God is our will. Everything else we have is already his. Our will is the only thing we can give him. So... How will you give your will to God this Christmas season? What will you do to make your own will, His will??

I love you all so much!! I hope that you all have an amazing week!!
