15 month mark

The difference between Cuauhtemoc and Chihuahua or Parral can be summed up in two things.

One: Wind.
Two: Creepers.
That sums up everything for this week.
I have many new names given to me by creepers this week. Miss Universe, Elena, my one true love. I accept them all with gratitude, knowing that a black been looks pretty all mixed in with the brown beans, but a black bean with other black beans is just a black bean.
On the work side this week, things have gone well. We have a few investigators, M and C, that have been going to church every week!! They got married and everything so that they can be baptized! This week they brought M´s mom to church and C´s brother. They are so excited to learn more about the gospel!!
A, a young women whose grandma is a member, is so excited she even participated in the young women´s program yesterday! Her mom, who has had so much fear to go to church, went to church to see her yesterday. We are so excited to see little steps of faith!!!
Other A was so excited to go to church this week when Sunday morning she fought with her parents. She then decided to not go to church. Crazy how Satan works so hard so that the good things don´t work out well. She was so close to going to church.
J was able to see a baptism last week and is so excited for her baptism this week!! Her 2 year old son sings with us every time we go to visit her, but he doesn´t just sing, he SINGS. I love it. Then when we stop singing, he folds his little arms SUPER ready for the prayer.
I am so grateful for the huge blessings Heavenly Father is giving us. I am loving being here in Cuauhtemoc!!!
Have a great week!

MARRIAGE. It`s what bwings us all together.

Do you know how EXCITED I AM FOR THIS WEEKEND?!?! We have these really awesome investigators. We found them in like our first week in Cuauhtemoc. They are M and C. They have a son who is less than two years old. M and C are not married, and this week we went to talk to them about the law of chastity. We left a pamphlet with M and she read the whole thing, then she explains to her husband that they are commiting a sin. They are so cute! They decided that they are going to get married this saturday!!!! They are so wonderful. M and C have gone to church now three times and are super loving it. We also have a cute little investigator, J, who is taraumara. She doesn`t really know how to speak spanish very well, and we don`t really know how to speak taraumara very well, so we follow the spirit a lot. We have to explain her what little words mean like power and teachings. She is only 18 years old and has a 2 year old son.
I have learned this week about dilligence. In Preach My Gospel it says that diligence is a constant, steady, earnest and energetic effort to do the work of the Lord. Dilligence is an expression of amor for the Lord and His work. In this mission, it`s a pretty big thing to contact people in the street. We make the goal of contacting 10 people in the street every day, and many days we can do it! There are a lot of people that walk in the street because it`s not too normal to have a car here. It`s a great way to contact people and a great way to find new investigators! We hardly ever have to worry about finding new people to teach. Anyway, being dilligent means working the same way or better every day. If we were able to contact 8 people in one day, tomorrow we're going to contact at least 8. Being dilligent means never missing a single moment, and making sure you are working hard even when your plans get changed. 
“I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; if he gets the Spirit, he will teach by the Spirit; and if he teaches by the Spirit, he will touch the hearts of the people and he will be happy. There will be no homesickness, no worrying about families, for all time and talents and interests are centered on the work of the ministry. Work, work, work—there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work.” –President Ezra Taft Benson
When we work for the Lord, we find joy and satisfaction in our work. This week has been hotter here in Cuauhtemoc! We are grateful to walk around without the heavy coat. As you will see, I already burnt. Yay for Chihuahua`s wonderful sunshine!!! A few weeks ago, I almost lost all the photos I have taken in my entire mission, but a nice young man was able to help me take the virus out of my camera`s memory. Some of these pictures are old, but I am really grateful he was able to fix my memory. Gave me the biggest scare of my life ;)
Have a great week!!

Hey hey hey!!! 

This week has been a week full of miracles! We are finding people so ready. So incredibly ready! We have been teaching a man named F in his work basically the whole time we have been here. He was a referral we got from another investigator. This week, we met F`s wife, T. As we were talking with them, T started to cry. She said that we are the answer to the question she has had her whole life. While her husband was already baptized in another christian church, she has always told him that he needs another baptism. She told us that she wanted to have an eternal family. We sang ¨I need thee every hour¨ and she continued crying. She couldn`t make it to church this week, but her husband went yesterday and loved it!! They are so ready!!

We found another lady that is an orphan. She is only 18 years old but has a two year old son. She doesn`t know how to read and only works one day a week cleaning houses. She accepted fast and wants to be baptized. 

C and M went to church this week again. They are reading ¨The family, a proclamation to the world¨ and have not faught in their marriage for two days now--something that happened every two minutes before. They want to have an eternal family.

There are so many more stories too!! Heavenly Father is definitely working hard. We just have to work as hard as He does too and everyone will accept the gospel!!!

¨Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow
that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life.¨ 

¨...they did all declare unto the people the selfsame thing—that their hearts had been changed; that they had no more desire to do evil.¨ Alma 19:33

lots of birds in one tree. sign of the second coming? hahaha 

our leader sometimes talks to us so long that my companion falls asleep...hahaha

My companion got frustrated and sat down in the middle of the pharmacy. She gets frustrated a lot. I knew they were gonna put me with a girly girl one of these companionships. lol

This dog came up to me in the park the other day and just started giving me some love. Can I bring him home?

Our house is so cold you can see smoke (i don`t remember the word in english) coming out of our mouths when we talk!
