"Just Do It"

Hello Everyone!

I love you all!  Another week has gone by and the temperature is heating up here in PR. I know I'll miss it one day:) I'm grateful for my companion, Elder Gonzalez who is very patient and supports me and lifts our companionship up. He is a great missionary. I'm grateful for the Gospel that we have to share. We are just keeping on, keeping on, trying to find those children of God who are prepared. It hasn't been easy, but we know they are out there. We just have to diligently find. Please pray for our investigators, Angel Luis and Annmarie.  They are wonderful!

Whenever I am tempted to not talk to everyone in the street or parking lot whatever it may be, the words, "what's the worst they could do, say no?" Always comes to my mind.  I thank my wonderful father and brother that have taught me this truth. Just open your mouth and talk:) It's so simple, and it can change lives. Don't be afraid. Everyone NEEDS the restored gospel even if they don't know it. Love you all. Open your mouths and share it because the worst they could say is no, but the best is that they can find eternal happiness and joy.

"We just want to help our brothers and sisters find the truth"

Headed to St. Thomas

Barbecuing for the new missionaries
It's okay Elder Gonzalez and I got lunch today 

Hello a todos! I hope you all are doing well. I'll throw down a quick summary of the last couple weeks. We've been pretty busy with mission things… transfers and conferences and preparing for new ones etc., but all is well here. We just want to help our brothers and sisters find the truth.  We are just trying to do all that we can do and by the Atonement of Christ and with the mercy He has for us, He will fill in for what we couldn't/can't do. We do believe in miracles and they will come as we serve faithfully. We also went with President Boucher to St. Thomas for half the day as he had to take care of some things over there. On to another week of serving our brothers and sisters, we love it and we are boricuas ya!

Love you all!

"The Spirit helps you learn things you've never recognized before"


With Caguas Zone Leaders

Mi Dios está brutal!!

I'm very short on time this week, but I'll write a quick summary. This week was great, it was mixed between training missionaries and working in our area as it usually is. On Wednesday we had a special MLC where all the district leaders were invited for the first half of it. My companion and I taught about revelation through church attendance. President Boucher taught about teaching repentance and revelation through prayer and Sister Boucher taught on teaching in the Savior's way. They both are incredible teachers and I look up to them. I love MLC because the Spirit helps you learn things you've never recognized before.

On Friday was our one zone conference and it was in Caguas. We taught on how to begin teaching from Preach my Gospel. We were nervous because of the lack of time we had to prepare, but we were still blessed to be able to have the guidance of the Spirit. It was good to see all the senior couples and spend time with them.

We set a baptism date with Luis this week. We are praying and working for him. We know it can happen. We will visit the two daughters of Sandy, Sanel and Lucia and hope they can continue progressing. Love you all!  We have 3 more zone conferences this week.  Thank you for your love and support!
