Hola Amigos y familia!

´I am called of God. My authority is above that of the king of the earth. By revelation, I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my master and he has chosen me to represent him, to stand in his place, to say and do what he himself would say and do if he personally were ministering to the very people to whom he has sent me. My voice is his voice, and my acts are his acts; my words are his words and my doctrine is his doctrine. My commision is to do what he wants done. To say what he wants said. To be a living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous latter day work.¨ - Bruce R McConkie
I love this quote so much, and especially this past week I've have realized how true it is. This is his work and his glory, and I am just a instrument in his hands.

Also lately I have a stonger testimony of the priesthood and that it has been restored in these latter days. By the power of the…

Dos Mas Semanas!

This week has been really good and it kind of dawned on me that i leave for Argentina in two weeks! In the beginning I was starting to get complacent with how much I had learned and I started to notice it in our lessons. I learned that I need to always have a eye single to the glory of God and then as is promised in the scriptures, I will be able to "comprehend all things" like Spanish haha. 

Something that someone said in one of our discussions really stuck with me, and has helped when I don't feel like giving my all or if I get distracted. They said how we had an eternity to prepare, and will have an eternity to look back on it, but we only have these two years now to give our all, and how important the work we are doing is.
Our next fast from English was so awesome! I didn't feel like I was held back in anyway and felt like I could communicate comfortably! It was so cool and I learned a lot of what I wish I could've said and whatnot.
During class one time we w…

hola everyone! gance bobo means silly goose I think
this week has flown by faster than the others and its been so amazing. Rather than explain each day Ill just give an example of a regular day because theyre all more or less the same. Each day we wake up at 630 but me and elder perkins usually workout at 600. Then breakfast is at 715. From 715 to 1215 we are either teaching a progressive investigator, studying, learning the language, improveing missionary teaching, or coaching. Then we have lunch at 1215 daily planning is from 1 to 130 and then we have gym from 140 to 230 At three aclock we have another progressive investigator and basically evrything we did in the morning only with a different teacher. Our teachers are so awesome and Hermano ochoa is so funny.  At 415 we have tall which is online language study sometimes dinner is at 515 but most of the time its at 715. sometimes we have trc which is teaching people who arent in the mtc whether they are members or not and then on tu…

Already Two Weeks!

Que Pasa Calabazas! I cant believe its been two weeks here. Ever since the first day time has flown by! The language was coming so quickly and I learned so much in the first week, I just need to make sure that I keep learning and dont get stagnant. Also things have gotten into a rythm here so its jsut been a blur! 
On thursday, it was our last lesson with daniela and it went really well. I feel like we followed the spirit and were able to answer her questions about baptism!
Friday We prepared for our next people we are teaching, Ignasio and Salma! we also did a service project during gym time and that was awsome! 
Saturday, We had our first lesson with ignasio and we learned alot! we kinda overwhelmed him with info when we should have realized that he had a limited knowledge of God. It was still great though and we testified of what we knew to be true.
Sunday was great and we learned a lot about aligning our will with the will of God. Also Our district leader was appointed zone leader …

Buenos dias everyone!
This past week at the CCM has been one I will never forget! The spirit has been so strong and the language is actually coming really fast. Im not fluent but I say prayers and teach lessons all in spanish! Well to begin, my journey to get here was very eventful.
Early tuesday morning I said goodbyes to mi familia and it was sad but I was looking forward to the adventure ahead. I made my flight to LA just fine, and then boarded my flight to Mexico city once I was in LAX. The plane didnt leave the gate for a while and then after about an hour I saw them taking our luggage out of the plane! And then a moments later they said that the flight was cancelled. Probably for maintenence or something. So we all get off and they tell us to call this number or go to customer service. 
Now I dont have a phone so I couldnt call the number so I go wait in the Custom…
