Una semana llena de los milagros Week 51

Hey everyone! 
This week was awesome and we saw so many miracles! I'll share just a few though. So this Sunday Jason (10) and Joe (8) finally
came to church. They really want to be baptized but for the past month they have been bailing on coming to church because they were scared to come to a new church with new people. But they came and they loved it!
And their older brother who is a member was out of town and they still came! But teaching them is so fun they are the funniest little boys ever. They are on date for the 26th of August so hopefully that date doesn't get pushed back anymore :)
And another miracle was that Friday night we got a referral for a Henry Melgar from some English missionaries. We came by Saturday night to see him and he is super elect! He recently moved here from El Salvador. We taught him la restauración and he loved it. He told us how he wants to change his life and was looking for someone to help him along his way. He came to church Sunday stayed all three hours and loved it! He wants to come to church again next Sunday. Oh he also wants to get baptized but he hasn't accepted a date yet but he will totally get baptized in the near future!
The sisters found an elect family of 9 this week. The mom is a less active member and 6 of the 7 kids are baptismal age. The whole family came to church so Sunday there was a just a ton of people at church and it was so awesome! The Lord has been blessing us tremendously and it is awesome! So this has been a great week!

Week 48

Hey everyone! 
What's up? Transfers are this week and I am staying in Kellogg yet again! That means I will be in Kellogg for six months! I'm actually really happy to be staying here again and with Elder Mujica!
The Kellogg branch is so awesome I am loving it here! Wichita is a great place!
Anyways this week was awesome! We saw some more awesome milagros! One of which was when we were on splits with the zone leaders. Elder Sperry and I went to contact a referral from the APs and we met Marta. We had an awesome door step lesson with her and she told us to come by the next day. So Elder Mujica and I went back the next day and had a super awesome restoration lesson with her. She was excited to read the Book of Mormon pray and come to church! And Sunday she showed up to church and she said she loved it!
Another sweet miracle is that we talked to an old Mexican man named Hector. We have talked to him before but then fell if the face of the earth for like two weeks but we found him yet again! (He was working out of town) anyways we had a sweet lesson with him and he told us how he wants to change and learn more from us. He came to church as well and he loved it! But Hector wants us coming by more often because he wants to change his life. Which is awesome because the Gospel of Jesus
Christ is all about change.
Anyways this week was great! I hope you all have a fantastic week!

Week 47

This week was awesome! 
It was flipping hot and this week is going to be just as hot if not hotter. And the wind is a hot wind plus the humidity. I felt bad for the sisters because their car was in the shop and they were on bike and foot all week. But anyways this week we saw some cool miracles. There is a family that moved here from Idaho 4 of the 7 kids were baptized just over a year and the parents were not baptized. Elder Radman and I found them like a month and a half ago. Anyways 2 of the kids Jason (11) and Joe (8) that we started teaching recently want to get baptized! They are on date to get baptized on the 29th of July. But we might move there date back a week so they can be more ready along with the older brother that will baptize them. But the bad news is that transfers are coming up so I may not be in Kellogg for that.

Week 46

Hey! 
This week was good. We talked to a lot of people this week and found a ton of cool people that want to learn more! So that was good but sadly none of them could come to church :( my birthday was pretty much just a normal day but it was good! I got emails from people on my birthday that haven't ever emailed me on my mission so that was good.
On the 4th when we got back to our apartment Elder Mujica and I sat out on our balcony ate ice cream and watched the fireworks happening around us. And there was quite a lot. It was good. It been getting very hot and humid in Kansas I love all this pics you sent. Maybe we will take another today. 

Love you tons! Thanks for my birthday presents you are the best!

Bautismo! 💦 Week 45

Hey everyone! 
This week was awesome! So many amazing things happened!
First off Josselin got baptized! It was awesome! At the baptism the whole branch pretty much came! It was such a sweet experience!
Josselin is nine, her mom and brother are members but her dad isn't yet. It's really such a blessing to be able to help people find the restored gospel and for them to get baptized by the priesthood authority. And what an spiritual experience baptisms are.
This week many other things happened from interviews and exchanges with the APs. So I learned so much this week. And as Elder Mujica and I have applied the things we learned we have seen so many Milagros come from it. Saturday the day after we had exchanges we went out and worked hard and met some people that were really interested. Here is one of the experiences, we went to go and see Gabrielle someone that we met about a week ago. When we started to talk to her she stopped us and said, "can I go get my niece I think she would like to talk to you guys too." We gladly accepted her request and met Laticia. We had a super powerful Christ centered lesson on the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They were both really into it and desired to come to church. We set up a ride with a member and they both came to church Sunday along with another member of their family (who we later found out was a member of the church but hasn't come for over a year) They
all really liked church. When we went to see them Sunday night we read in the Book of Mormon with them and they were all excited to read chapter 2 and pray about it! They also mentioned another family member that they said would be interested in talking to us too! We don't even have to ask them for referrals they just keep giving them to us!
