November 24, 2014

today we did something really fun as a zone today. we did a colorfest. and we got all colored. it was like what they do in utah

but a better thing that happened is that we had a new investagater. and he was golden. then he moved. then he moved back. we were then out of the blue he called us again. and said i want to have a nother lession with you guys. can we have it in 10 minutes. so we hurried and got ready and left. we had just finnished service we got there and he said last night i prayed and  asked if the things you guys taught me where true. and presto he got a answer. he had been looking for the correct church for the last 5 years.

we taught him about the book of mormon. and after he said something i feel with what you say is peace. its something that i want to follow more.

 him and his girlfriend went to the temple that night to walk the grounds. she has been a member for her whole life but has been inactive.
they sent us a text saying. i have felt so much peace from this and that god wants me to continue on this path and i want to i will do anything to go forward with this as soon as i can.

on sunday he was at church and he loved it. there was a talk for him that was perfect for him and he loved it. he said i really like it alot. we had a quick lesson right after church. he told us that he really wants to continue on this. and last night they had decided to seperate until they could get married.

so he has a date for the 6th of december. he is working hard and eating everything up.
that was a great blessing.

how was the chance to go out and work with the missionaries.

this week we have planned to have a thanksgivig dinner with a family in our ward. that should be fun. we are trying to get a hold of a turkey. but we will see. we got things for pumkin pie already.

we are also plannig on doing the flight to paradise activity with our ward this next week which will be fun as well

this last week our bishops wife was out of town and he was bored so he invited us over to practice a song for church. he plays the violen and my comp the piano. then he started making us food and wanted us to stay really long. it was kinda funny

my comp has wanted to learn how to make the cinnomon rolls he did a kkinda good job. the taste was there. haha. but i have made them alot. and the ward members love them. mom you are winning here as well with them

welli love you all. and hope you have a great thanksgiving.

November 10, 2014

this week we had a fireside with all of the members of presidents family and the 3 zones of montevideo and some less actives and investigaters and converts. It was a really great theme of families are forever. there was someone president baptized 30 or so years ago and she then went inactive he got he last year got her active again. and then got the family all baptized and also to the temple it was a real testiment theat we are her on the mission to bring families together and to make them the happies that they can be. that is only for the blessings of the faily. and the temples. with out the work in the temple for the dead and the attonment means nothing to the people who were not baptized and also for us with out the temple we can only progress so far. i brought a few of the names which i have found in family search. it was cool to thoink that his salvation was held in a little paper that i printed of with his information that i could take to the temple. and that his salvation was trusted with me it can be trusted with all of us as well but it is true that we can do the work for others.

we had a good turn out in the temple we had 24 wich was pretty good for our ward.

a thing i was studing in the book of mormon this week was in 3 nephi 11 and when God is introducing Jesus Christ he saysBehold my Beloved Sonin whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him.

i was thinking what would God say about me if he were to introduce me. what would he say he was well pleased with me. why or why not. it is something we need to all think about in our lives would God be pleased with what we are doing.

we are also planning for a activity in the ward it is a flight to paradice. but the plane crashes and you go through all the different kingdoms and you learn how missrable the first few are. how there is no such thisng as families.

the washer and dryer is so much better then hand washing cloths. clean clothes all the time. no more scrubbing on rocks. haha 

this week we have a mission conference with the other mission and with elder christensen. we also have a stake priesthood meeting with him the night before. so that should be good to get a double dose of him and to beable to learn  alot from him. 

yesterday the two biggest soccer teams in uruguay played. national and peñarol. and when ever someone scored they let of fireworks and i am on the 8th floor and live a apartment complx with a similar layout with heleman halls but a little closer together. and they lit the fireworks in the middles. so the fireworks go off and expload about where i am at. its was fun to watch them.

when these two teams play it is always nuts. 

but othere then that this week was good i learned a lot about what our purpose is and the purpose of the church in the earth. to untite families

Nov 3, 2014

this past week we had two baptims. not in our area but they were people that naea taught and then one that i taught and then other elders baptized them. in total there was 5 people that i saw get baptized this last week. that was a really good experience.

also there was halloween here. its not as big as in the states but it still exists. we had a little fun in the night in the house i will send a picture.

but with the baptisms it is really special to see people make a covenant with God to always remember him. always keep his commandments and to take his name upon them.

i still remember my baptism. i remember who talk and who said the prayers and also what room it was in in the murrieta stake center and then going into the fount. it is something really special to remember and to always think back on. that that was the day that you comitted yourself to always follow God

today we got a washer and dryer so no more hand scrubbing all of my clothes and then hanging them out the window. this will be alot nicer. but it was a pain to get them in the elevater because they are about just as wide as the elevater.

this week we have a fireside with president smith and all of his family. they came to visit and so all of the members of montivedo are having a fireside with him.
and also we are going to a ward temple trip on this saturday. so this should be a fun eventfull week.

something that i was reading in moroni 7 and in the last conference talk i dont know if everyone quite understands this.   Satan is bad. anything bad is from satan. anything good is from God.
very simple 

something that alot of people know but not really understand.

for pictures at night wepainted oursleves blue for halloween. like avitars. but i kinda looked like a Blue Ape

and this was the baptism of luana dopico
