A Transfer of Changes....



Hello Everyone...
I am glad to see that everyone is having a great summer vacation....
This past week has been crazy...and we are starting the last week of transfers....Which is crazy...this month and a half has gone by so quick...We have implimented so many different rules and things and we have seen a difference in the missionary work here specifically in Puerto Penasco...All of our missionaries here have been really good with all of the changes and we are even more excited for the next transfer....


This week we had 2 more baptisms of Ofelia and her daughter Rosa...I talked a little bit about Ofelia about 3 weeks or so...Ofelia is amazing..About a year ago the missionaries stopped passing by Ofelias house because she was not progressing....and we passed by 4 weeks ago or so and began to teach her again...she told us that in the time when the missionaries werent passing by her husband died and she says it was and still is super hard for her...and even when the missionaries werent passing by she was reading the Book of Mormon to feel better when she was feeling sad...So we found her again repassed through the Mission Lessons and she has been coming to church ever since with all of her kids...She also has started to read the Book of Mormon with her kids everynight... So it was an amazing opportunity to witness her baptism...We hope that in the following weeks the rest of the children will be able to be baptized....


I am a little short on time...But I just have to say how cool it is to have such great unity in the companionship...I learned in this transfer this lesson...That if only one of the companions is doing what he should and is focusing on what he should...they will only have half of the success....but when both of the companions have the same purpose and focus and are obedient you can really see miracles happen everyday...Just a little marriage advice for anyone who needs it...


Love you all

White Weekend and Yellow Shirts...



Hello Everyone...
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer vacation....
This week was wonderful...we had 3 baptisms on Saturday...Omar was baptized and A sister called Berenice and her daughter Brenda...


Omar has been progressing for a long time and was 100% ready to be baptized...In our time with him he has read the Doctrine and Covenants and Half of the Book of Mormon... and is going to autosufficiency classes at the church...His situation was the ideal situaction of missionary work with the members...The sister you see in the picture is the sister that first gave us the reference and she was present in every one of our visits with Omar...She was there at the beginning, during the lessons, during his Baptism, and will be there to help him feel more comfortable at church...


Berenice and Brenda are two investigators that the Hermana Wood was teaching before she and her companion left...Berenice is married to a member and they live super far away from the church the truth is that they dont live in the area of anyone...so the Hermana Wood asked if you would continue teaching them....They both have tons of friend in the church and feel really apart of the Branch...Miguel the son of Berenice did not get baptized but he will continue with the missionaries while he attends the University in Baja California...


These are really great people...I cant wait to see their progression in the church and I cant wait to see them attend the temple in 1 year...So we had a great weekend in white...


This week has been a hard battle with the wind...it is getting pretty hard to pedal on the bikes with the strong winds from the sea...also with lots of wind and so much sand my shirts are getting a little more yellower and more stained haha kind of funny/sad


We continue finding more people to teach and more people that want to progress in the Gospel of Jesus Christ....


Thanks so much for your love and support....Love You all

Hey Everyone...
Just another crazy busy week...We had a great week going on quite a few intercambios with the Elders in our Zone...It has been really cool...We basically know all of Puerto Penasco from the Beach to the desert where there are very few houses and lots of sand haha We also got to know alot of the members and investigators that the missionaries have here....It is an incredible experience to get to meet more people....


We have put in action the changes that we made in our meeting with President this week...The Mission President got permission for us to knock on more doors...(it wasnt allowed before because of security reasons) which will be great for everyone so that we can find more people and have a constant flow of new investigators...We as a mission have improved with teaching the Restoration completely in the first visit with the focus that the people will read the Book of Mormon...


Omar is progressing really well and is excited for his Baptism on Saturday...This past week he had a interview with the President and President told me that he is 110% ready for his baptism...He will be a completely changed person when he gets baptised and recieves the Holy Ghost..


The rest of our investigators are progressing really well and we are always finding new people well especially now that we are knocking on more doors...haha We hope to have a few more baptisms this week and the next, if all goes to plan haha....


This is our week in a few words haha Thanks for all of your support....
Love Elder Child

Just trying to do a little planning with my new pencil that i found on Companion Exchanges...haha


                        You just never know where you will find a shark in the desert! haha


 

4th of July in Mexico



Hola Everybody,
We have had quite the week here in Puerto Penasco....As some of you know we got a new Mission President on Monday of last week...we had the opportunity to go to Caborca on Thursday for a Multi Zone Conference to welcome and get to meet President Robinson and his wife....They are really great people I am excited to see all of the changes that will be made so that we can progress as a mission....As Leaders we went to Hermosillo Monday to have a Leadership Meeting on Tuesday where we were able to see some of these changes....We cannot wait to put the things that we learned in practice in our Zone...


So we spent alot of our time this week on the road traveling and in meetings haha I think i spend half of my time in a Bus, in meetings or on the cell phone talking to the District Leaders and Assistents haha....But we did get a little time to visit and all of our investigators are doing really well...All of them are getting really excited for the baptism dates that are coming right up...It is amazing how much God blesses his missionaries if they are patient, diligent, and obedient....Sunday we met a few more people that just "show up" that are just so ready to learn and to progress....I love it...So we are running around our area like crazies trying to visit everyone....Also to help us balance our time a little better in our area we changed apartments so that we can live more in the middle of our area...But now we are settled and we can get to the limits of our area in any dirrection in about 30 minutes with our bikes...So we are moving forward.....:)


Sorry dont have a lot of time this week but hope everyone had a great 4th of July...Being outside the States for the 4th make you reflect a little more of how blessed we are to have the freedoms that we have...We spent a few minutes on Saturday Morning singing our favorite Patriotic himns and reading scriptures that talk about the United States in the Book of Mormon...haha


Love you all
