Week #65.......God is ALL powerful

I totally forgot about Halloween haha!!!!

Hey guy’s what’s up so apparently today is Halloween. How weird. Haha but all is good here in the hood!!!!!! This week was full of ups and downs. We went into the week with a whole bunch of potential to baptize like crazy in the zone.. But Satan was not having it. He worked hard to take away 10 people from baptism. Dumb Satan, but don’t worry we will get them back this week. My companion is a peculiar guy. He is always talking, always just not during the lessons haha he talks to himself a lot haha but I try to find the way to strike up conversation. This week we bought selfie sticks. Its better because there is always one missionary not in the picture. If you ask some random dude to take your picture you will never get you camera back haha. We found a dude that’s got some talent!!!! He whips out some gnarly bracelets in like 30 seconds. And the only cost 5 quetzals each. Like 75 cents I hope I stay in Antigua I love it here. But we will see what happens. 

Spiritual thought. Satan has power. Many people get this confused. Satan has power that God gives him. He has no power without God. God is ALL powerful. So Satan has to receive his ‘power´´ from God!!! Don’t fall in temptation people.

I love you guys!! Wont talk till Wednesday because its change thisweek!!!!!!! 

Love you all!

Week #64 ......Be Hopeful, Be Cheerful, Be Loving


This week was good. We did the same missionary stuff like we always do. We hope to have 2 baptisms this Sunday!!!! It’s the family that got married. For p-day we were going to go to Panajachel with all of the mountains but the bus broke down on Sunday. So the dude who was going to take us told us that he couldn’t, but oh well good thing we live in Antigua. My companion is doing all right. Its not that we don’t get along because we do. We are just so different it’s hard to strike up a conversation. I do a lot of solitary thinking this week hahaha. Everybody thought the rainy season was over. False alarm people….. the rainy season is defiantly not over. We got soaked yesterday. My zone is good and going to get bigger next change. They are going to open up an area called San Pedro las huertas. It has not had missionaries for like a year. So we get to find a house where the new missionaries can stay. Its kind of tricky because there are such limited houses and so many rules the mission has for the houses. Oh and they only give us 1200 quetzals to pay per house per month. So its been tricky.... other than that all is good here in Guatemala.

I have been thinking a lot about hope lately. The gospel brings a perfect brightness of hope. The gospel sheds light in the darkest of places and gives us hope a better world like the book of Mormon teaches us. I know that hope is easier said than done. It’s hard to hope, because hoping is having faith with no evidence that something will happen. Just putting 100 percent confidence in the Lord is a hard thing, but if we can do it. Your life improves. Hope gives us understanding of our purpose. We need to hope for things, which are not seen but true. The Gospel is not a physical thing that you can see, but we can see the blessings that come from it. For that reason we need to HOPE!!!!! Be Hopeful. Be Cheerful, Be Loving.

Week #63....We need to be people who act!

Hey Family and Friends,

This week was pretty cool. We married a family of investigators this week and they are working towards baptism. We baptized a family that the sisters taught, and we found a blood pressure tester so we were playing with it haha Other than that I am doing great. It’s been so cool to see the change the gospel can make in peoples lives if they just live it. There are so many people who know what the gospel is and how it works but this knowledge gets us nowhere. We have to live the gospel to receive its blessings. It’s been cool to see people sacrifice so much to receive the promise blessings. This week was fun we were running around a lot with a few weddings in the zone. But i wouldn’t have it any other way. I love having stuff to do, people to teach, and places to go to help. I hate when we have to improvise due to fallen plans. 

Spiritual thought. 2 Nephi 2:4. We need to be people who act. Not people who get acted upon. We have to be creators of the circumstances and act upon them. haha I don’t know how to explain it that good but its a cool scripture

Love you guys, 


Week #62....Miracles

Hey Family and friends!!!!

This week was awesome we saw miracles working the stuff we had, less actives and converts, and through them we found more people to teach. It was cool. Its rained everyday this week. and so I got really wet haha. Here its not the same rain we are used to in Utah. I’m talking like it rains and hard, and the streets are not built to have rain so everything floods. ummm..... haha not sure what else to talk about. We went to a cool ruins place for p-day. Here they kind of use the out of country people to make money so they wanted to charge us 40 to get in because that’s the USA fee. And the wanted to charge the central Americans 3 quetzals. But i told him I had been in Guatemala for 14 months. At first he didn’t believe me but then we started speaking Spanish to him and he believed us. haha so he let us in for free. Other than that a regular week; working hard and having fun.  

Spiritual thought. The book of Mormon needs to be a center point in each and everyday. and as we read it and put into practice its principles we feel good and see miracles.

Week #61.....Inviting the spirit

Loved ones!!!

Hey this week was full of stuff. We had a baptism of an awesome lady named Nancy she is 22 and was baptized on Wednesday. She then went on to watch all 6 sessions of conference.(yes including priesthood) because she is so excited to be a member of Christ’s church. She will be a great member of the church!!!! Next went to the church to watch conference. It was pretty good but not a big fan of watching it in Spanish. I have noticed a theme when David A Bednar speaks; he always invites the spirit to be with us and to guide us to revelation during his talks. And I love that thought. He knows that without the spirit he will just be speaking with words. When we invite and listen to the spirit these words are changed into feelings that lead us to act. General conference is a blessing. This week we played soccer again for p-day. I tried on some glasses from a kid in my zone and I thought they were funny looking so I took a picture. My companion is pretty much just like the first two companions that I have had from Peru. haha but we all good.

Spiritual thought... See above.

Love you guys
