D+C 123:12-13

"For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties and denominations...who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things [out] of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--these should then be attended to with great earnestness."

 So, I found peanut butter, and I was so happy! This is me and Elder Richmond on an exchange, and we made p b and J´s! Word.

Hey everyone,
This was a great week, Conference was super powerful! All the missionaries in the zone from the states got to watch conference in English! That was legit. But it was a great conference, we really have to make sure that we´re ready for the things to come- If we are centered on Christ and just keep the commandment, we´ll have peace and be protected. I know that´s true!
And we´re working with Silvana right now so that she can get baptized on the 10th! She´s been and investigator for over a year (I think I already told you guys about her..) But she is such a rock. She´s been working in that job she found after our fast, for 24 hours every other day. She is my hero, she knows that church is true, and is doing everything to get move from her house and get baptized. I don´t know if I would have the faith to do it! But I really got thinking about her, and about the other people that we teach. We teach the EXACT same thing to everyone, but seriously only those who keep their committments, and gain testimonies by reading and praying are affected by the gospel. The same is true for us, LET The gospel change you!
I love you all so much, I know that this is the church of Jesus Christ, and that it is true. I know we have a prophet so that we be "No more tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine." It´s real.
Have a good week!!

Oops...sorry this is a little late :)

Hey guys!

It´s been a good week- We found out the changes last night, and I´m staying in El Bosque as Zone Leader! Elder Galeano is leaving to train, and he´s going to a department called Florida.  He´s been an awesome companion, I´ve learned a lot from him!    I´m be with a brazilian named Elder Leite! And I can´t believe that I´ve hit a year! Time really flys, it´s crazy.   

This past change, I´ve really been thinking about these last days that we are in. Our mission has gone through a lot of changes while I´ve been here this past year, and we are really doing a lot of training with these members about the importance of sharing the gospel. It´s made me think a lot about the covenants I´ve made as a member of the church, and the responsibilities I have to share the gospel and serve those around me. We´ve studied a lot as a mission the Administative manuel of the church, and under missionary work, it explains how the missionaries are in the wards and stakes of the world to assist the members in THEIR work to share the gospel. That is really interesting! Before my mission I ALWAYS thought that the members are in the wards to help the missionaries in their work, but it is completely the opposite. So, thinking about that responsibility, I´ve really realized how close we are to the second coming, and how much I lack before He comes again! We are so close, the hard times are here, and we need to step up as members of the church and be stronger than any generation that has ever lived to prepare the earth for His coming!   hahaha I´ve really learned a lot this past year!!

So, this week, we´ve been working with a less active lady who´s an RM, but has made some wrong choices. She wants to come back, but her husband isn´t a member. We went to their house the other day, and painted a room in their house, and really got to know the husband better. (Her name is Natalia Bojorge, and her husband is Gonzalo.) So we did the service, and set up another time to go back and have a charla.  Something happened, and we couldn´t go back, but they came to church this past sunday out of the blue!!!!! SERIVE WORKS!!!! hahaha so we´re really excited, I´ll keep you posted!!

I love you all, have an Awesome week!!!

 La Mano de Punta del Este

 So, in our zone there is an historical house that is like 60 years old, that an old italian built when he imigrated to Uruguay. and it´s and Eagle!!!!   So we had a SWEET Zone activity last week!
 Me and my comp are studs. Period

 Oh yeah, and we had a sand castle contest against all the districts! it was legit.

This is my district. I´m pretty sure we won the contest...


Hey everyone!!!    

This week was really good, I got to give a talk in Sacrament meeting, that was fun!  We also saw some miracles-  We have an investigator named Silvana who has been an investigator for over a year. Her boyfriend has problems with drugs, and she has been trying to help him so that they can get married and baptized. But He does not want to change. So she finally said that she was done, and that she was going to move out.   The only problem was that she didn´t have a good enough job to pay for an apartment. SO, we fasted with her that she would be able to find a job and move.   We fasted on Wednesday, and on Thursday a job that she had applied for over 3 months ago called her and offered her a job!    It was so cool, and she now has a testimony of fasting! She is such a STRONG convert already, it´s incredible. It´s interesting to see how converted she´s become, compared to other people I´ve taught, because we teach the same things to everyone, but ONLY those that truly humble themselves, keep their committments are those that experience that mighty change of heart, and become santified and purified.    It´s true for us too, even if we´ve grown up in the church!

We also found a new investigator named Gonzalo, the husband of a less active lady who is also an RM. They are looking for the gospel, and told us that they want to have a refuge for their daughters in a world of confusion. We´re SUPER excited! I´ll keep you posted!

This week, I was studying Alma 22 about king lamoni´s dad, and Aaron, Ammon´s brother. When The king prayed and repented of his sins, with true intent, the spirit changed him 100%. When he woke up from his coma, he got up and imediatley started to minister to his people, and the whole house was converted to the Lord. I always thought that Aaron was such a stud for converting all those people, but I realized that is wasn´t Aaron, it was the king! He shared that gospel with his household. When we become CONVERTED to the gospel, we naturally want to Share it. That´s how we do missionary work, help one or two become converted so that they can go and convert MORE.      So, a really good indicador that you are converted or not is your desire to share the gospel. If you don´t have that desire, GET IT!!!!

I love you so much, Have a great week!!
