Week 44

Hey! Things are going great! We are having a baptism Saturday so that's awesome!  I'll talk about that next week and send pics! On the down side is that I have bed bugs :( I hope I killed them all.  Tú they are sneaky little buggers. My new comp is sweet. He has been out 6 months. We have been getting along great so far.

much tiempo. Have a great week.

Week 43

What's up everyone?? 
My my week was pretty sweet to be honest and lots has happened. My new companion Elder Mujica is really cool he is from Mexico so I'm learning more Spanish! Earlier this week we had a lesson with this guy named Ulysses. We met him a while back and he showed interest but wouldn't ever keep his return appointments. We finally caught him at a good time and had a sit down lesson with him and his brother. We taught a spiritual restoration lesson and they were really into it. After the lesson they were totally down to talk to us more and read the Book of Mormon. It's cool to have these experiences as a missionary to give people spiritual experiences and to have their desire to learn more about the gospel grow. The biggest milagro (miracle) that happened this week was when we were having dinner with a member Hermana Castañeda. Her husband isn't a member. She told us that she has a daughter that is nine and she wanted her to take the missionary lessons. So the next day we go over and meet Josselyn. We talked to her about prayer, scriptures, church, and baptism. It was a cool experience to be able to teach simply for a nine year old to understand. It's a cool thing about the gospel it's so simple and easy to understand that we can understand it, know that's it's true, chose to follow it as young as eight years old. As we taught her about baptism she said, "I want all my sins to be washed
away" After talking with her parents she is on date to be baptized on the first on July! We gave her the Book of Mormon stories book. And we saw her the next day at the branch Father's Day party and she ran up to us with the book in hand and said, "I read the whole book already and I'm going to read it again!"

Week 42 Transfers

I'm staying in Kellogg for another transfer! Elder Radman is leaving to Garden City and Elder Mujica (moo-hee-kuh) is going to be my compañero. I don't know him at all. 
Anyways, this week was awesome we met some really cool people. We met this homie Marlyn and is super open and wants to learn more and come to church with his whole family. They are in the process of moving so they couldn't come this week. But they are all planning on coming this Sunday. Marlyn is really cool after we talked to him he texted us a ton of long texts telling us how grateful he was that we talked to him and how he is looking forward to having us come back and talk to him and go to church the following week. So I'm very excited to get to teach him! Also this week our investigator Claudia came to church and accepted a baptismal date of July 1st!
Last Sunday we had a mission wide 24hr fast. It was really cool. We
have seen so many miracles come from it.

Week 41

Hey mom! 
My week was good. I got to go on exchanges with the APs Wednesday so it was cool to be able to learn from them. This week we talked to a lot of people too. Cool story. Sunday night we had nowhere to go so I was just randomly driving around and out of all of the places to be in Wichita we happened to pass the house of an old referral (Lenny and Juan) that some other missionaries sent us a good month ago that we were never able to find them home. Seeing that
someone was outside the house I hurried and pulled over and went to talk to them.
Radman: Hey are you Lenny or Juan?
Lenny: Yo Lenny! (Stands up and shakes our hands in excitement) ¡Por fin me encuentran!
Translation: I Lenny! Finally you found me!
This guy was awesome. He asked us where the church was and what time it starts so he could come next Sunday. And then he gave us his number and said to call him Saturday. (He works out of town all week) then is friend Juan came outside to get in his car and as he passed by Lenny told Juan that we were coming over Saturday to talk and that they were going to church next Sunday and Juan seemed pretty down too!

So there is one miracle that we saw. Another miracle was that we didn't see Mariela we saw Salvador though. We only ever go to that house to see Claudia and whenever we go we go when Salvador is working or if he is home one of us talks to him (he talks a ton so it's pretty much just him telling weird crazy stories that he says are true but they aren't) and the other will teach Claudia. Salvador invited us over for dinner again but we told him that we were going to be busy that day.
Transfers are coming up next week. And we will find out Monday so I'll be sure to let you know. I really hope that I'll be staying but anything could happen so we will just have to wait and see.
It's great to hear from you. Sorry but the only picture I took this week was of the meal calendar and I'm sure you wouldn't want that so sorry. Have a great week you are the best love ya!
