Missionary Work Like Never Before...

Right now, I am watching a talk that Elder Bednar gave at BYU education week. It is Absolutely Incredible!!! If you havn`t seen it, go to this site. I am very happy to be a missionary in this great time -the dispensation of the fullness of times-. Although our mission won´t be receiving tablets or the permission to use facebook (at least not any-time soon... I think) we are still feeling the greatness of the hastening of the work.

Almost all of my mission, I have had days when I didn´t know what to do. All of our appointments would fall through, and we would walk around without purpose for hours. Starting this Change, Elder Rosales and I have seen the exact opposite. We are almost TOO busy... we don´t have enough time to be in all the places that we need to be. We are constantly runing from appointment to appointment, and sometimes we almost don´t have time to eat dinner and lunch. The Lord is truly hastening his work.

Know that this is the work of the lord, and that we are all to be involved in it!

I love you all!

Zone Barbecue, Parrots, Boa Constrictors, Missionary Work and More...

Family and Friends, 

I don´t have a whole lot of time. My District was in charge of the Zone P-day today, and we had a barbecue. We just got done cleaning up, and there isn´t a lot of time until P-day ends. 

We are working hard here in Puerto. It is bitter sweet. Every day is hard because it is super super hot. It is a battle to walk all day long and sweat like crazy. Also, I´ve never been so tired and exhausted... it is like the sun soaks everything out of us. But it is all worth it. The work is going well, and there are some wonderful people here in Puerto that are ready for the Gospel. We are teaching a lot of great people and Families. 

I love you all! I am happy and well, and always and the Lord´s Errand :)

A Great Week.

Elder Rosales and I are working hard here in Puerto Maldanado. Although sometimes it is hard because of the heat, We are doing all that we can. I am always exhausted, but we keep working. Elder Rosales has a great attitude, and he is always happy, cheerful, and willing to do what needs to be done. I´ve been blessed with a great companion. We´re basicly starting from scratch because our sector was 1/2 closed for a change (long story made short: a missionary had health problems and my companion was in a trio for 4 weeks of the transfer until I came). So we are contacting like crazy and getting to know the members like crazy. 

Miracle of the Week:

President Harbertson Challenged us to contact more families. About a week ago we contacted a family in the street. They seemed quite nice, but they wouldn´t give us an exact address (they may not have one...) they only told us that they lived close to a member that we know. We asked the member, and they didn´t know them. A few days later, a little boy ran up to us and said: "I know you!! you gave me a picture of Jesus." Both my companion and I didn´t remember the boy (sometimes it is hard to remember everyone we meet and see). We asked him if he could take us to his house, and he did! We knocked on the door, and guess who came out? Milca! The Mom of the same family we had contacted days earlier! She let us in the house, and we taught her and her kids. The Father of the family was also there, but he didn´t want to take part in the lesson (the spirit will touch his heart eventually)

I am so thankful that God is leading and guiding us in his work! He is always with us.
