Hey there! Another week is gone. Ha so this week I was asked to say a prayer in English for our District Meeting.. and goodnight Jason Derulo.. I started out with nuestro which means our and I was talking so weird! Gonna be crazy to talk to all of you in Inglés again! I sure hope that all is well up there.. And that you are all doing good. I am gettin weirder and weirder with every week that passes ;) I am just lovin it.. And time is just cruisin.. Crazy that everywhere I go people ask me how much time I have left in the mission.. Haha i find it weird cause they never did it before.. And leave it to Chahuites Oaxaca, all the members ask.. I tell them I have 3 more months.. And they all OOOOOO your practically done!.. I just kinda smile and try not to think about it so much because then the time goes by slow. But anyway, crazy how fast the time is passing.. I'm feeling good and just learnin a ton.

It's really starting to warm up here.. the other day.. The temp. was showing 43 celsius.. yup... that's triple digits.. ha I couldn't believe it.. And with humidity.. Pretty much sweat all day.. It's a magical hot place.. Aah.. Really gonna be weird when I get home and it feels just hot and DRY.. gonna be shweet..
This week we have worked a ton.. And just been having all the baptismal dates fall through.. I felt pretty bummed but I know that The Lord is in charge and that this is His work.. I just need to accept his will and work hard.. I know that he loves all his children.. Just get bummed when you put so much work into one person.. And at the last second they don't want anything.. I've learned a bunch and feel very blessed to be a missionary.. We may be having a baptism this week..
This is the last week of this transfer.. The 31st of this month will be transfers.. My comp might be leaving.. I kinda hope not.. Cause he has been one of my favorite comps.. He is a lot like me.. And he likes to do work.. This will be my last transfer as Zone leader I'm sure and then in May for my last transfer.. (Which starts 13 of May) I will be transferred to my last area and my last comp.. Crazy.. 2 more..
I am grateful to be here.. And I know that this is his holy work.
I sure love each and everyone of you.. Thank you for your examples you are to me and thanks for your love and support.. I'm blessed to have you in my life! (:
You make me smile.(:
Remember you can be anything you want.. Get it right. Pure Imagination.
Take Care, Until next week..
Con todo mi corazon, les amo

I believe I can fly.‏ March 17,2014

Hello(: how you be up there in your neck of the jungle.. ? I am sorry I took all day to write you, it's because we had our zone activity today, and that was great to go back to Arriaga and burn myself haha I'm fried outta my mind.. But it's all good.. It was good to go see all of the elders in the both zones.. And play some basketball and jsut get weird.. I am glad that it's done and over with(: That will be my last acitivity in my mish and it was pretty fun.. It's been crazy everyone tellin me that I am outta here.. Haha.. And then today in my letters I recieved the letter I need to fill out to be able to go home.. Pretty crazy.. I will be printin it out and fillin it in so I'm able to fly home back to you! Crazy.. Just gonna keep on keepin on tho for surely sure.

Well this week was grrrrrreat like tony the doggone tiger says. I learned something that will stick with me all my life.. and I'm really grateful for it.. I have learned I guess through experience here that when the trials come.. Cause there sure as heck do we need to get on our knees and ask for strength to endure the trial we are passing.. Not ask for it to go away or run and hide.. We need to asak for his divine help and rely on our Faith to carry us through it. It is all very simple when we think simple.  I am grateful for the perfect example I have in my Savior Jesus Christ I know he is always there for me whenever I need his guidance and his holy help. I was also strongly reminded of the importance to always be diligent , be humble and be an example to all you come in contact with. These threee simple things will lift us up and make us better everyday. And thats what I'm talkin about Willis! 

I know with all my heart that this is indeed the lords work.. I know that we can all be an example wherever we go. One thing I have been doing in the mission is praying for people or oppurtunities to help gods children and it sure works.. Big miracles are brought to pass by the smallest of actions.. Just gotta DO WORK

Les Amo, con todo mi corazon.. 

Se cuidan mucho(:

Stickin To The Script‏ March 10, 2014

Well I just wanna start out by saying I have on a pair of pants that a member gave me and they shine.. Literally they shine. Lovin my dark blue shiny pants today with my matchin shiny tie.. Just livin that life right here in ol Oaxaca, Mexico(: Just glad that I am able to write my favorite people again today, and I sure love you and miss you.. Lovin la misión but just countin the days till I am back there with you.. I sure am grateful to be here tho! Like I say every week I am learning so very much about myself every week and I love being and feeling so close to the lord.. I know that if we want to feel closer to him.. All we need to do is ask him for his help and his spirit, he will comfort us. 

Well this past week sure was a good one.. Started it out by rollin out to good ol Tuxtla and that was great to see everyone.. Me and Elder Jones rode the bus from arriage to tuxtla together and also talked it out into the late night hours laughin at how many ridiculous videos I have.. Your gonna love the one year dance vid.. But yeah it was good to see em all.. Eat some dominoes pizza, soggy hamburgers and just talk some good ol english for a bit.. It was good.. Nothin to new to report this week tho.. Yesterday I also gave a talk in Church about the Earthly ministry of Jesus Christ.. It went very well, I was thinkin a ton about what it will be like when I give my talk there at home.. gonna be weird with my english for sure.. But I'm just lovin every moment here.. Fightin that good fight is what it's all about.. Throw a smile on and takin on whatever comes.. When we were in the reunion with presdident and the other zone leaders.. President Cardenas got really emotional and told us about how much potential that we have.. I really felt the spirit and I know that each and every person has more potential than they realize. I have made a goal to do all I can from now until June 23 to reach that potential and do all I can in my power to be a better me.. It's not easy.. But thats how it needs to be. I really enjoyed bein there and feeling of the spirit. Pretty amazing what the mission teaches me.

Well times jettin and pretty much all the days feel the same but.. I am grateful to be here and to be workin and gettin better with everyday.. I feel very blessed to be here and to know that I have such an amazing support in all of you makes it even that much more worth it.. I know that when we are reunited it will be one very special day for all of us. Comin in hotter than a corn dog at the state fair. Hahah.. 

fotos from tuxtla just gettin weird.. time is flyin.. pretty crazy.. ALrighty..

This week was a good one.. Just wanna  tell you right off the bat that I ate some shweet things this week haha but didnt take pics so ya just gotta believe me. We ate some shweet iguana with iguana eggs.. haha i had to bite the top of the egg and suck it all out.  Haha next I ate some shweet turtle eggs.. And honestly I was kinda bummed.. I felt bad eatin little turtles haah I was thinkin about Finding Nemo.. But yeah it was great haha the things I have eatin here in the mish.. 

I am doing good.. Just lovin every minute of this time.. I have learned that I am here to draw closer to my Savior and learn more of him, I am so very grateful for His Atoning Sacrifice. Makes life significant when I remember him and all that he did for me.. I know he loves his children and wants whats best for them,.. Even tho sometimes they have to suffer.. Through him and his gospel we are set free. 

I'm here to draw closer to my heavenly father.. I know that everyone else always wants to tell you what you need to do to but I have learned that I am here to be close to him and be me. Grateful for this time I have to share this wonderful message and jsut help them in Service!

 Okey dokey well.. Good Días to you all (: How do you all do? Gettin more creative than Alberto Einstein with that title eh.. Hopefully you are all awaking with a smile and an attitude thats brighter than that doggone morning sun(: I have had quite the eventful week.. Like they all are! Hopefully all is well up there in ol Delduh.. Sure do miss it.. Ah well 4 months(: Hopefully your enjoyin your time to relax a bit dad.. Hopefully work is goin great for you mom, and hopefully you also have time to relax.. Hopefully Ridge beat their game..? (Is that correct grammar.. pretty sure no.) But hopefully they won. And well hope Kort isn't bedazzling his pants or the deer mounts.. Just kiddin Kort I know your manly bro.. mmyup I sure hope that you are all doing good.. Crazy how times just comin and goin.. It's putting a lot of things into perspective for me. Grateful for every second that I am given. This life truly is so very beautiful. I feel grateful.

   Muy bien, Well this week I have seriously been amazed at all my heavenly father has been putting in front of me.. I know that whatever it is that comes from him we just need to it, and always be meek and lowly of heart. I truly know that I am being guided everywhere I go.. And it's something that's very special to me cause beforethe mission I know I was being guided always! But I was arrogant and didn't even recognize nor did I acknowledge his guidance.  We have been led to many people this week and they have definitely been prepared, It's sad that i have grown used to seeing people not have riches or let alone anything now.. I am really blessed to be able to get to know these people and also to be an instrument in helping them makes it even that more special.  For me the best doggone part is seeing them smile when they understand that we are a help.. It makes it ALL worth it. Just gotta keep on DOIN WORK!

All is well here and I am just enjoyin the time.. I love gettin called Gringo everywhere I go.. Gotta enjoy it.. (: Cause they won't call me that when I get home! Well, I have plenty of stries to share with you all.. But I feel that it will be much better and a lot more worth it in person.. So gonna go head and keep em till I am right there with you all.. Alright gonna go head and share some scriptures I liked this week, that have really helped me in my self growth here in the mish(:

D&C 112: 10
 10 Be thou ahumble; and the Lord thy God shall blead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.

Matthew 5: 45
 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
