March 9, 2015

So this week didn't have soooo much stuff happen so I’ll just go through the highlights because I don't have much time!!! 

We had exchanges this week they were super fun! We had some good lessons and it was nice to just change for a little bit. I learned a lot from Elder Baer, he's going home next week...Sad :(, but yeah I saw how he talks and contacts people on the street and I’m going to try and implement what I saw and learned. On the exchange we had dinner with the Iglesias Family. It was super bomb. We had carne asada and frijoles, and arroz, y salsa. It was the best dinner I have had in a while but that’s because we haven't had very many dinners lately :/ But it’s all good! 

We had a super good lesson with Hno. Medina who isn't a member but his family all is. We found out that really the reason he isn't baptized is because he felt pressured by everyone. They kept putting him on date and it kind of freaked him out and he focused more on the baptismal date then on what was going on at church, or in the lessons. So we are just going to teach him and not bring up any dates and when he is ready he'll tell us.

We had ward conference. That was pretty fun. The youth and primary sang and we all got little flowers haha. It was good. Moises Larios just got home from his mission so he bore his testimony. Elder Twitchell and Elder Baer had their Departing Devotional on Sunday to so Workman and I got put together and went and did some work. That night we went to the church for Moises' Home Coming Fireside. It was pretty good. There was Pan Dulce (Sweet Bread, or Candy Bread) after and it was interesting to hear about missions in Spain. I don't want a home coming devotional thing though. So don't do it! I won’t go! haha. 

That was about the week. Other than some district pictures because we had our last district meeting >.< Well for this district. We'll see what happens in a week haha.

I know this church is True. I know we are guided by a living day Prophet who receives direction from God to guide us and help us be happy! General Conference is coming up in a month. I invite everyone to prepare themselves to receive personal revelation. Read the scriptures, pray, think about questions you have and concerns. They can be answered if you are prepared to get the answers.

I'll talk to yall next week!

 Hey mom.

So Monday.
On Monday we had a Noche De Hogar (Family Home Evening) at Bishops house. The Sarabias came and they had a lot of fun! We made some brownies and we had a lot of fun there. Bishop did a lesson about the Word of Wisdom. He did a really good job. Other than that it was pouring when we left the library so we got soaked and decided to just ride through all the puddles. 

We had the Youth Missionary Activity. We had all the youth come and everyone got a call letter and name tag. We put them in companionship's and had some little workshops and it was almost like we were in the MTC. Elder Twitchell and I had a work shop on how to do door approaches. We had the young men in with us first and they didn't take any of it seriously and just joked through the entire role plays but the YW did awesome! It surprised us how well they did. We had Renevato on the other side of the door for them and he was super impressed to. They young women had a lot of fun doing it even though a few didn't get into the house they learned a lot. 

We did some service with Hno. Martinez. Tore apart some couches. It was good to get out and do some service again. After we got done we went to In-n-Out. It was super good. Probably the best fast food burger I've ever had in my life!! They need to make some of those back home. 

Walked all day. Had almost no lessons. I might lose some weight if we keep it up like this haha. We found 3 new investigators though. They are 3 brothers, their mom is a less active member named Maritza, and the boys are Randy(13), Joshua(11) and Kevin(9). They want to get baptized we just haven't been able to because they don’t have permission from their dad. But we are working on it. 

So we rode down to Bloomington to try a Referral. We find the house, knock the door, but she's not interested. We decided to knock some of her neighbors and while we are doing that we get a call from our ward mission leader to come to his house for the Correlation Meeting. So we ride all the way up there and have a short meeting and then they pull out a cake because its Elder Twitchells birthday!
So we had some cake and then we left.

Sunday was more or less the same as usual. Noelia, Maggy, and Charlie came to church. Had a good time. We have a family home evening with them tonight at the Toriz home. Hopefully everything goes good!

Gotta Run!
Have a great week!
