The Mission Rocks!!!

First of all the mission rocks!! Life is good, I am good, God is great, what more could ya want!? I do need your prayers; my investigators need your prayers too! Very much in fact, we have to baptize this cycle, and I am kind worried I won’t be able to. 
I was able to realize that baptizing isn’t everything, and we cannot measure our success by how many people we baptize! We have to realize what it is that God really wants for us. 

This week went by lightning fast, and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! Loco verdad?  
I hope that you are enjoying the snow, are scary as it is, because I miss it! It’s still hot here sometimes....

I will be honest the Christmas season isn’t the same here in Mexico, it’s very very different!! It’s kinda cold here, and there aren’t very many lights, not very much Christmas music either. 
I will never forget the 12 of December though, that’s the day of the Virgin Mary here in Mexico.... ALL and I mean ALL of the Catholics come out of their holes and party HARD. We didn’t have that much success that day, it was a challenge for sure, we stuck it out and worked but it was rough, I had to repeatedly pray for strength and forgiveness that day. 
It was definitely an experience of a lifetime!  

I did come to realize that this people are slightly confused and all I really wanted to do was help them!  They need our help and that’s why we are here.  We are not here to preach to them the same lesson over and over, nor are we here to mess around.  This is serious work here, these people told us to visit them in the life before and they are waiting for us!!

But let’s see here best thing that happened this week: we had a cultural event for the dedication of the Tijuana temple ad we invited an investigator and when we passed by to take him to the church he wasn’t there, and he wasn’t answering our calls, so we thought he wrote us off, but when we got to the church, there he was!!!

What I like most about being a missionary: speaking Spanish, hearing someone pray for the first time, and the food... oh and of course the spirit!!

I testify that Jesus is the Christ, he atoned and died for us, but he lives!
I testify that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ the son. The Book of Mormon is real, I have read it, and I asked and I got my answer! It’s the truth!
