In The Year 2525

well first off, im being transferred out of Mercedes.. que triste.. leaving mijo behind but it'll be good. so this week was great!
so about a week ago. we were at the library doing 12 week and i noticed this kid kept looking at us.. and watching what we were doing.. we then went to sit at a table and shortly he then came over and sat at the table wiht us.. we were planning while we were there and i noticed the kid was reading a magazine.. i ask him, hey do you like to read.. he says yes.. then i tell him. i have a book for you to read, its free and it will change your life, its the best ever and then i gave him the book of mormon. we gave him our number and thats it.. we then leave.. come to this week now. we see him again I was like yoooo did you read the book, he said yes all the way to chapter 6 in 1nephi, sick!! we invited him to read more that night and pray about it and then call us.. he doesnt have a phone but said he would find a way. 90% of the people we give our number to never call us when they say they will.... but later taht night we got a call from an unknown # it was him!! he read to chapter 15 and felt something in his heart, we told him that, that was the spirit and then we invited him to be baptized and he said yes! we saw him the next day and he read all the way into 2nephi!! ORALE!! how sick?!?!? it was awesome!! also we've been working with a menos activo for a while since i got here and he has never come to church once,, well we had a good talk with him and he told us he couldnt come to church cause he needs a new front tire on his car.. we are like..pos we'll find one.. dont worry about it.. later that day we called some members and someone had 2 just the right size for his car. brought them over the next day and the member was honestly shocked..buy grateful.. he came to church this week! it was great!! well time is moving on and things are great!!

Once Upon A Pollo

had a good week, we had a pday activity with mission zone and our mission president. we picked up branches for this one sister and i swear these branches reminded me of the thorny bushes from sleeping beauty we all got poked. i got wayyy sick this week i literlly thought i was going to die i had a way bad head cold.. one morning i woke up just coughing and coughing..and i was on my way to play basketball with the zls and i just coughed and coughed and wouldnt stop man it hurt so bad.. i was on the verge of throwing up i seriously thougth in my mind that i would feel better if i just puked all the yuck out.. well we started to play basketball and i played while dieing and then my cough went away... wow miracle.. idk it was crazy haha i dont know how to type anymore sorry for the typos... every week there seems to be a theme for lessons or people we talk to. sometimes it could be prayer and we teach lots of people how to pray or one time it was aliens, i swear everywhere we went there was something to do with aliens or demonic things. well this week it was marriage. we are trying to set up a wedding for some of our investigators. and other people we visited kept telling us about their marriage and we'd share things to help strengthen them. its so weird but awesome. my time spent with barnett ive learned lots of humility and just being charitable.. i remember one time i was in laredo and it took me a good 2 minutes for me to tell my zone that i loved them.. well one day i come out of the bathroom and we find out something is broken that barnett took out.. and i was like brooooooo thats all we got and idk i just blew up a little bit, he didnt think much of it. and after i was like wow.. i was so rude..like something inside me hurt..i was like alright i gotta tell him that im sorry.. so we sat down and i was like mijo i gotta tell you something, he said whats up...
and we sat there for 5 minutes..i kept trying to say that i was sorry and i honestly dont know why but i couldnt..like whats wrong with me i cant apologize for me being rude..why cant i just say im sorry..the words literally could not come out of my mouth...and then finally i just stopped trying to say the words.. i looked at him and then finally.. i could say .. dude im sorry for being so mean..i'll probably never forget that moment..transfers is next week and this has honestly been the best. you can never have enough charity. idk the mission is great and you really gotta take advantage out here of all we have. andale!! out in the vineyard bustin a sweat and i love it. we walked up to this big house real close to where we live.. knocked the door and this lady opened and we were all like hey:) and then immedietly she said.. oh noo.. no i cant.. and shut the door.. it was great. haha. i think thats all just keep enduring guys. i miss you all a lot. be happy:)

I Don't Want To Live On The Moon

first things first.. youre unique in your own way. dont worry.
idk why but this has been just a little quote thats been in my head.
we were having troubles with marisol and her actually having desires she says she has.. ahhh she is so close to everything.. her son Rod really wants to get baptized as well ahh.. man they are both so close.. we've been going around offering to bless peoples house, as a way to get into them. and the thing behind that is we contact somone and offer to bless their house.. we go inside bring the spirit super strong and then leave... well it amazes me at how many people that dont want their house blessed..we are teaching quite a few people that are so close to church, ahh everything is there. we were visiting Rene the guyt that had a strong a while ago that cant read or write we brought up baptisms for the dead and he started to cry cause he said that his father was a really bad guy and wants him to be saved.. he wants to know if these things are true. we invited him to pray .... we came back later in the week y nada... he didnt pray. made me a little triste cause thats holding him back.. is just a prayer. later on.. we were out and found a new investigator named Fatima, well she referred us to her neighbor who is part of her family.. and we go next door and the neighbor is outside so we start talking to him in spanish.. i explain to him that we are representatives of jesus christ and that we have a message of restored truth and then the guy shot back.. literally i swear.."Are you really with christ? i said Si. "are you sure?" and this is all in spanish and i said yes i am very sure. :"do you really walk with Him?" i said yes we do and we know that he lives. the whole time this is going on im thiking what on earth is this guy doing..? well this guy just wanted to battle so we just testified and left.. but it made me realize that someone, somewhere will take a jab at you like this guy did and question and shake what you know is true. dont be fooled. stand strong and dont let the winds of the adversary blow you over. it was a good week, i buzzed mijos head. i gave my fist baptismal interview to this guy Juan, he's a stud!! yesterday i celebrated my birthday with elder shipley! it was dope. i ate a lot. the work is great and i love everything! today is a celestial p day so we'll see how that goes. thanks guys for everything.
