Saturday: RAMIRO GOT BAPTIZED and I got really sick and spent the
afternoon/evening in bed
Sunday: Ramiro got confirmed and Ivan Antonio got baptized, we spent
the evening feeding the homeless at a Catholic Church in Covina.
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY. Every second is full of serving the Lord's
children and it could not be more worth it. I love each of you; go

Sorry it's been a while since I've really emailed. The last few weeks have been so busy.
I LOVE THE HOLIDAY SEASON. Everyone is full of the Christmas spirit (which is really Christ's spirit) and it is just so wonderful to see all the lights on houses and to see the light in people's faces. I love the #lighttheworld initiative on Mormon.org. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out.
These past few weeks we have seen so many miracles. Lots of our friends who we are teaching are coming to church, reading in the Book of Mormon and deciding that they want to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized. It is incredible to see how God is at work in their lives, helping them come closer to Him. This weekend, Ramiro and Ivan will both be baptized! Ramiro is the father of a recent convert, and we taught him back in September. He left for Mexico for a couple months and came back just a few weeks ago. While he was in Mexico, he read in the Book of Mormon every day and found out for himself that it was true. It has been amazing to see the changes he has made in order to live his life in harmony with God's will. I am so excited for him! Ivan is a 9 year old boy that we have been teaching and he has just an incredible love of Jesus Christ and a strong desire to follow him.
Thanks for all the support and love!
I got to make carne asada this week #lifemade

Sent from my iPadHello all!
Sorry for the lack of emails. There is never as much time as I would like.
I LOVE being a missionary. We have found so many wonderful people to
work with over the last few weeks. I am so grateful for the
opportunity to work here and to be a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We went to the mountains today and I am SO THANKFUL for nature and for
the beautiful sun, mountains, trees, rocks, rivers, flowers, birds....
God is so good.
Have a wonderful week! Open your eyes and recognize God's hand in your life!

Getting ready for Halloween!
MLC (mission Leadership Council) with elder dyches, one of the 70
This week we had so many meetings and I learned so much. I learned how
important the Book of Mormon is and how important it is to be
personally accountable for our own actions. I think that is a life
long lesson to learn. I am excited to apply the counsel we received.
I love being a missionary. We had lots of hard moments this week (wow,
missionary work is HARD), and yet I still LOVE my calling to preach
the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I wish I could speak to every
person in the world and tell them how BEAUTIFUL and HOPEFUL our
message is. There is a living prophet on the earth, who guides us and
receives revelation on God's plan for us. We can fulfill that plan and
find happiness by living the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is so amazing
to see my own testimony and conversion grow, even if other people
aren't willing to listen or accept or make changes.
I love each of you, ¡que tengan una linda semana!
