My Faith, Your Love, Our Mission.. 9.23.2013‏


Ay! How are y'all doing (: hope this past week was puro excelente and that you are all feelin like Jive Turkeys.. Crazy how fast they go by huh..? I can't beleive it, we are practically 3 months away from Christmas, and 2014 haha crazy how the years come and go.. We will be right back here in the end September again before we know it.. (:  SHWEEEET...

Well I was readin a good ol talk by Our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson and I really liked it.. He also talked about the mission a bunch, a part in his talk that really stuck to me was when he talked about family and how the mission is a family affair.. I have been significantly blessed with a loving family and friends, I sure am humble and content.  I'm forever grateful for this mission, every mile is surely  molding me into the man I need to be, this life is a process.  I know that after this I will continue to grow and progress with your help. I will say it in every letter but I just feel very grateful for all of you in my life, and know that I love you all so very much.  I know that this is our Lord and Saviors Great and Marvelous Work.. He is helping me, help others and I know it to be true with all my heart. I will fight the good fight with a grin on my face everyday, aunque a veces no puedo hablar español muy bien, no importa estoy feliz y eso es TODO(: 

This week we were blessed to do a lot of service, it's gotta be my favorite part of the mission.. Service is why we come out here! It was a good week, we were also blessed to find another child of god that has been prepared.. We now have a baptismal date for the 13th of Oct. Pretty amazing to teach about our Savior and just watch them light up. I'm grateful for the Spirit that works within us.. Well that be all, I just am lovin it all.. And I think thats why times flyin, and everyday is another day closer to bein with all of you again. 

Well here is to another good week.. It will fly by! Be happy and enjoy that beautiful weather your havin for me(: I'll soak up plenty of sun for all of us and all of Utah.. Hahah (: Just be happy, and I'll be talkin to ya all soon(:

Learnin' A Bunch(: SEPTEMBER 16, 2013



Well I sure hope this shweet email finds you all with a smile that's all I'm sayin.. I am so very grateful to have all of you in my and hope that you know that.. I mean that with all my doggone heart(: Just wanna say thanks for your words and for your examples you are to me.. I feel very humble to have you all in my life.

This has been a good week, I just wanna start out by sayin that I know that our Heavenly Father is always listening to our prayers, that sounds very cliche but until we recieve a clear answer it sounds even better.. I have recieved many answers to my prayers.. And this week I was comforted and felt a strength beyond my own, I know that I can do all things through him and his son.. It is truly amazing the conversion that takes place in these 2 years, I feel like I have grown and I know that I will continue to do so.. I am learning along with these people I have grown to love, at times it is hard because we come from different countires but I have grown to care for them.. I am learning with them, and they have taught me so very much.. I even turn off the water when I am brushing my teeth now.. There ya go(: haha.. 

Well we are workin a ton.. It rained unrelentlessly (I think that's a word) this week, I couldnt believe it.. 3 days of pure agua.. It was amazing.. Never let up, just that tropical rainstorm, and the seasons must be changin, crazy to think.. Anyway we are workin a ton.. It feels good, I know this is our Lord and Savior's work and I know he is very pleased with all of his missionaries that are humble and here for the people.. I feel like a stud walkin down the street with that ELDER PETERSEN and JESUCRISTO on my chest.. It is something that I will always treasure..

I have been thinkin a bunch about football.. I always go back to the 2 a days, in the pure heat, fighting for the top spot, and I have come to learn that in everything the strength that can move mountains is all mental.. I know that I can push and push, and excel.  Ever since your email dad, I have been readin Jesus The Christ know.. And I can feel myself growin closer to him and that is what it's all about, I know that the mission is a conversion most importantly in the missionary, if they do it right. I am grateful for this. 

 17 aHonour all men. Love the bbrotherhoodcFear God. Honour the dking.
 21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ alsoasuffered for us, leaving us an bexample, that ye should follow his steps. just want you to all know that I love you more than you know.. I am glad to be here, and to be growing. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this mission is preparing me for my future life.
