we roasted "castanas" (chestnuts)
more halloween fun
We made pasta at Carole's house. She's awesome
Family and Friends,
This week has been... interesting! We don't have a lot of investigators up here in my new area,
so we are doing a lot of finding but it's been kind of hard because my companion has been sick this
past week so we haven't had a lot of time to be outside. Sorry, that was like a crazy run on sentence.
Anyways, Oviedo is awesome!! The buildings here are beautiful and the landscape in general is really cool.
Lots of rolling green hills and cool statues. It does rain a lot though which is a challenge but there is definitely
a lot of work to do!
The branch here averages around 60 members in church on Sunday and there are a lot of really cool families
that I have gotten to know. We had a young single adult activity on Thursday and we carved pumpkins!
Then on Friday we had a Halloween party with all of the decorations we made. It was really fun!
We had a few investigators there as well which was great.
On Tuesday I had my first lesson with a guy from the United States! His name is Michael and he is
from New York! He is really cool and we had a lesson with him on the Book of Mormon.
His brother is a member of the Church and he has a lot of potential! It was great!
Then on Wednesday we had a lesson with an investigator of ours named Manuela.
She is from Guinea and she is awesome! She really wants to get baptized and comes to
all of the church activities but just needs to get married first. Poco a poco…
Last night we had a lesson with a man named Jose Alberto from the Dominican Republic!
He is a new investigator and we taught the Restoration. Elder Carrejo did a really good job
and we killed it! The Spirit was present and Jose accepted everything we said. It was like
he wouldn't argue with anything we said and I think it was because we taught with the Spirit.
I am really excited to see how he progresses in the future.
My mother asked me to write a little bit about how my mission has affected my life and to put it simply:
My mission has had a great impact on me. Before the mission, I don't think that I was a bad kid or anything,
but I've really come to learn about the important things in this life. My testimony of the Church has grown
immensely and my knowledge of the plan that God has for us has grown as well. I think that I would not
be on the right track if it were not for the mission. I now understand so much more about the importance
of my family and the importance of the gospel in our lives. I know that this Church is the true Church on
the face of the earth. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. And I LOVE sharing this message.
Until next time!
