Week #40 Gomez Palacio

Ok, well, I’m starting this email with little time left but I´ll try to include the major stuff.  It´s been a sad week and we are going to have to take a step back with a lot of investigators. We were hoping for a lot a people in church but all of the investigators faced…

Week #39 Gomez Palacio

This last week has been so hard but so rewarding.  It is so refreshing to see miracles after so much trial and disappointment.  After many long weeks of preparing Marlen and Arlet, they were baptized this last Saturday! It was such a sweet moment and the hermanas were really touched by their baptism. We felt…

Week #38 in Gomez Palacio

Week #37 Gomez Palacio

This week I don’t have too much time to write an email so I’m just gonna talk about my investigators real fast. An investigator whose name is Veronica confided in us that her baby grandson had died recently and she felt like God was punishing her for not being a good person.  We had a…

Week 36 Gomez Palacio

I am sorry I didnt write last week but a lot has been going down in the new area and it has blurred by.  My first white comp, Elder Looney, got sent to another area, but another white guy was sent my way!  His name is Elder Christiansen and he´s hails from the bitter, lonely…

Week #31 Porisima

Well his week I began work in a ranch called Porisima and it has been hard work.  When I arrived, there were no investigators, hardly any active members in the branch, and its been almost impossible to find someone that wants to listen.  But I love it in the ranch.  Everyone is super nice (And…

Week #30 transfers

Its been and interesting week and now that transfers have come and gone in the mission, there are a lot of big changes.  First off, I got transfered to a new area called Porisima and it is located much closer to the mountains than my last area, which means its also a little bit cooler. …

Week #29 in Torreon

Ok, well this week is one for the records as a true testament that there is opposition in all things, especially in missionary work.  I have had some serious trials this week but I feel blessed to know that I can feel some of what Jesus felt during his earthly ministry.  I know that we…
