No se que debo poner como subjecto

Well this week was pretty good! I'm sorry I'm still having more and more trouble finding stuff to talk about as my mission comes to an end!

But this week we met Michel. She is the granddaughter of a member and she just turned 8 years old. Since her parents aren't members, we get to teach her before she gets baptizsed!
So we went for the first time, and we start asking her questions about Christ and God and about the restoration, and she basically just taught us the lesson completely! I forgot how much we actually learn in primary. And I think that I am especially blessed to have been born in the covenant. Its really true the children's song, "I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I KNOW who I am, I KNOW God's Plan, and Ill follow him in faith."

A lot of the time we take the Gospel for granted, and this week I am just especially thankful for it. I've known it for my whole life and have been immensely blessed by it. I'm so grateful I have this time to share it with others for 2 years. And even though its coming to a close soon, I hope to never forget what it is to be a missionary and to be a disciple of Christ.
Anyways, Michel is going to get baptized this Saturday! We are very excited for her 😁

Anyways!! Hope everyone has a good week!!

Don't forget to send pictures!!

This was a weird week! haha for most of it I had a bad cold but I got better and now everything is awesome again!

So last week we went to lunch with some members and they happen to live right across the street from the ocean! So OBVIOUSLY we went and checked it out. This view I saw reminded me that I was on an island. Cause a lot of the time it doesn't even feel like it. But we took some cool photos and videos that Ill upload and send the link. 

So one of the cool lessons we had this week was with these kids we had met previously. There are 3 of them and how we met them was just by asking a member to visit one of his friends. 
We taught them about the restoration and it was really good! They were really interested and wanted us to come back super soon! The next time we were there we gave them a BOM and they are very very excited.

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! I'm uploading videos now!

Just so you all know, I'm ALIVE haha. It was a really cool week because of people we've met and keep teaching. We are going to place a baptismal date with the Salazar Family and we are super excited about that! We have a baptismal service planned for the 1st of July! Should be awesome!

Love you all!

Lecciones Poderosaas

Wow. What a week.
So 'Im just going to share a story of a lesson we had this week.
First one was with Benjamin. Hes had some problems with his wife being part of another church, and lives in Rhode Island. He told us that he has a testimony of the church, and he wants to be baptized. Its just that his wife is super against it, and hes scared that she'd leave him if he just went and did it. The first thing I told him was, "who do you want to follow more, people? Or Jesus Christ?" He sat there for a second, and said, "Jesus, I need to follow him, but its so hard! What can I do so I can please God and also my wife? I want to be stronger." That's when I told him he should do 3 things to help him get that strength. And this whole conversation is in English BTW. "Okay. First... GO TO CHURCH. go to church. Second. Pray for help. Pray for strength and for long suffering. The Lord will help you. I promise you that. Third. Pray for your wife. Pray that she will understand. Pray that she will have her heart softened. I know that it will be hard for her. She might be SUPER mad, but in time she will understand that you are just trying to do the right things, the things our Savior has asked us to do."
After that he was super excited. He told us he was going to do all of those things. I am rooting for him so hard. He is such a good guy. We are going back to his house later this week and we will see how everything is going.
There's some more stories but Ill save them for next week!

Haha this week we went to an underground lake the sister missionaries found earlier this week! It was super cool to go. And the coolest thing it was just in a public park! Thats how I thought my whole mission would be haha. But anyways, we took some cool pictures and here they are!

Me and Elder Anderson are doing very well. And the end of my mission is going bien chevere. 
Love yall! Have a good week!
