Week 41

Hey Everyone! 
Another week in the mission and a whole lot of nothing going on. We had some annoying car troubles and spent a lot of time at Firestone getting our car fixed. The tires were all screwed up. Waste of time! Other than that we just went out finding ALL day. We found 2 new  investigators this week named Mario and Ilda. We have been trying to teach them since I got in the area and we finally had a lesson with them. They are excited to learn. Arturo is doing really good. He is reading the Book of Mormon and enjoying the time when we come over. He has a great support group so he is doing good. 

It is crazy how fast time is flying. This is the last week of this transfer. I don't know what is going to happen in the mission soon. We have like 71 missionaries going home in the next 2 transfers. That makes the mission a whole lot different in the next coming month. 

The computer for some reason won't let me upload any pictures, but next week I should have a lot of good ones coming your way! 
Sorry for the short email. The 4th of July though in Sunny side, Texas... The biggest disappointment I have ever been apart of. SAD!! In my area at least. No parades! No fireworks! No nothing!! You would think that in Texas, the 4th of July would be awesome. NOPE!!! 

Well I hope everyone else's 4th was amazing! Literally my favorite holiday still! 
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!
I love you all!

Week 40

What is up everybody! Another great week out here in the Hood! 

This week we found a new investigator named Arturo. His wife is a member and her family are members. They are a powerhouse family in the ward. It is awesome. He has real desires to learn and he told us "I am planning on being baptized. I am gonna ask my father in law to do it". So it is a pretty perfect set up! 

Also, this week we had this thing called a Mini Mission. What our Stake does is have kids from the Stake go out and be with the missionaries for 3 days. They are pretty much missionaries. They plan with us, study with us, eat with us and everything. They even get set apart as missionaries. It is honestly such a cool program! We had a kid named Adan Soto with us for 3 days! He was so much fun to have and a great kid. Super fun and cool thing. 
Also, I went on exchanges this week with our district leader down in Alvin, Texas.  Man, did we get ruined by a huge rain storm!!! It was insane! The wind was so fast it was blowing the rain horizontal. Way to much fun! haha 

My goals this week are to work hard and be happy! They are the best goals! If you work hard, you don't think about anything else and if you make the choice to be happy, you search for the blessings! 

 Have a great week!
I love you all
