8/11/2014 - Los Pinos Letter & Pic


Hey Everyone,

   So this week surprisingly enough was pretty normal for a missionary, get up read your scriptures, companion study, language study, and then work. Its so great, i love having a schedule and knowing what we are doing everyday, i now know why our family plans every Monday morning for the whole week just to know what goes on in our lives is a comfort and security that helps us.  So nothing out of the ordinary.

  We had one woman, she is kinda old and you know what she said she actually started reading the Book of Mormon, and she accepted baptism and everything, there is power when you read the word of God, you just feel it in your heart and down to the marrow of your bones, it was amazing. She comes out and was like, "I have a question, in the book that you gave me there is this guy who is he?" it was perfect we were able to talk about prophets and how they receive revelacion and so forth. It was great. We then talked with her daughter later that week and she had a question about what her pastor said, so her pastor told her that her mom is not really her mom but a man from another life who killed people and had to become a mother to know how to love like a mother did.  I remember looking at my companion like, "did we just hear what i think we heard?" it was a good opportunity to share about our first parents Adam and Eve and how they never had another life before this one, why would they have another one after. We said that we lived with Heavenly Father before but we never had another life before this one on earth. It was great, the spirit helped us answer this question with clarity and direct principles. 

  So that was one story, we had another and we were sitting with our investigators in church in the Gospel Principles class and they bore their testimonies of how this is the true church of God and they could now say that they belonged to the True church because they knew that it was right. That was an amazing experience you could feel the spirit testify of the truthfulness of it.

 We headed to the Zoo today, wow it was cool! we got to feed a pig! and touch a lot of animals, you could literally reach over and touch a lot of the cages, especially me, because i am tall and i have long arms so.... hehehe it was great! there were a lot of monkeys! it was cool. There was also a walk through an aviary and there was this bird that pooped on one of the girls that came with us and it was all over her hair and arm but the picture that i took was erased so sorry.  Anyway, it was a blast and i was happy that we went it was only about 20 pesos, so that was a little over 1 dollar in the USA, it was great!!! 

   Well don't have much to say so just want you all to know that i love you all and can't wait to write next week, we have cambios this week so don't know if i am staying or not, well just like my dad always says Work Hard, Do Your Best, Never Give up!

Always Happy,
