This week was CALIDAD

this week was literally awesome.

Gloria got baptized. It was such an amazing miracle. I am so happy for her and I know that this gospel will keeping changing her life.

Also our convert, Jose, that got baptized in January, invited his friend to church. It was a young couple with a 6 year old daughter. And they came to church. What an amazing miracle!! Seriously. It reminds me of Alma. After his great change of heart and experience with the Atonement, what did he do? Alma 36:24. If we really experience this joy... What should we do??? SHARE THIS JOY WITH OTHERS... Share the gospel. What a great example is Jose.

I have been thinking a lot lately about the worth of souls. I love the scripture D&C 18:10. How does God see us?? I love this quote from President Uchtdorf. He said, "You are loved. You are dear to your Heavenly Parents. The infinite and eternal Creator of light and life knows you! He is mindful of you. Yes, God loves you this very day and always. He is not waiting to love you until you have overcome your weaknesses and bad habits. He loves you today with a full understanding of your struggles. He is aware that you reach up to Him in heartfelt and hopeful prayers. He knows of the times you have held on to the fading light and believed, even in the midst of darkness. He knows of your suffering. He knows of your remorse for the times you have fallen short or failed. And he still loves you. And god knows of your successes though they may seem small to you. He acknowledges and chericshes each one of them. He loves you for reaching out and helping others beart heir heavy burdens, even when you are struggling with your own. He knows everything about you. He see your clearly, he knows you asyou really are. And He loves you, today and always!!" I love this quote. I was thinking, If God feels this way about us and se3es us in this way, how should we see and feel about others?? We should see everyone as God sees us and them. We should focus on their potential. Our potential. This is the way we can become like Him. Trust me, it is easier said than done, but we can do it. We can see people in this way. All people. Everyday we should change little things to be able to see others as He sees them.

Love you all!! have a good week!!

I really love the mission. It doesnt get better than this. Sometimes it hits me suddenly that I am a missionary. That i am literally a missionary. I love it. It is the best feeling ever.

We have some positive people that will be baptized this month. On Thursday two of our investigators will get baptized. Esteffany and Erick. Man. I love them so much. Seriously. I never thought I could love people so much. Esteffany is 15. She just had a baby. Se has wanted to get baptized for while but didn't want to risk it pregnant. Her family has some cultural beliefs that are kind of different, but we've got to respect and understand those. She has almost finished the Book of Mormon. she started reading in october. She is so amazing!! Eric is her boyfriend. The coolest thing with him is that he was not interested in the gospel at all a month ago so we didn't really teach him. Esteffanys brother is a convert that got baptized in October and he gave a family home evening one monday night, when eric was there, about the temple and family history work. This convert Luis is AWESOME. Well turns out that the spirit of Elijah touched Erics heart in that family home evening and he is now so excited to be able to do the work for some of his family members that have passed on. So amazing.

I seriously love this time here on the mission. I cant imagine what my life would have been without the experiences I have had, am having, and will have on the mission. The mission is what I needed to be able to apply the Atonement more fully in my life in order to be able to change. I am not even close to perfect, but i have improved so many things that i needed to change and improve. Through Christ. I testify of my Savior. He helps us. He carries us. He lifts us. He comforts us. He motivates us. He encourages us. He heals us. He forgives us. He saves us. He understands us. He knows us. HE LOVES US. I am forever grateful for the privilege I have to testify of Him everyday and I will never go a day without testifying of my Savior.

I love you all!! have a good week!

Temple Visit


This week we were able to attend the temple.  It was awesome being back inside the temple.  It is such a blessing to be able to serve there.

During The month of January, we were able to teach 180 lessons. That is a ton. Super crazy!!! We teach all day every day and are loving working with the people. I know we are going to see some miracles this month.
