|Elder Rogel, Elder Herman, Elder Passeri, and Elder Wegner|
working hard in Tepalcapa.
What a week! So at transfers I figured out we are opening the área. There weren’t Elders here for about 2 months, then some other Elders came for 3 weeks, but one got sent home. So we don’t have much. We even had to start with a new phone and no contacts. So this week we have been doing a ton of contacting and we’ve gone with some members to help us know the area a little bit. My companion is Elder Rogel he just finished his training. Funny thing is that he used to live in the stake that we are serving in (Tepalcapa) but then moved about 2 hours away and got called back on his mission, haha. But he is a good Elder! Doesn’t do many things on his own, but I like the work, haha. Also Elder Wegner became a Zone Leader this transfer and he happens to be my Zone Leader! With my other favorite missionary Elder Passeri from Argentina! He was my first Zone Leader in the mission and we share a church with them. So I am pumped about that also! The ward is amazing. So many member missionaries that are so excited to help us! Every time we eat with a family someone comes and helps us. Yesterday we went with a member to her neighbors and were able to set a baptismal date with them and the member invited them to church and everything! So I am way excited to be working here! Also last night we had a family night with a member and a less active. This girl has been through a lot! She’s been a member for a while. She knew the church when she was 16 but her parents didn’t support her so she couldn’t be baptized. Then later she got baptized and was going to institute and she met her husband, an ex missionary. But then he went a little crazy and left them with nothing. Then she got diagnosed with cancer. So she couldn’t afford to get to church anymore. She said the hardest loss was her scriptures. So we gave her a Book of Mormon and she just started crying. She said that it is her time to return and the members are helping her a ton! Tender mercies like these make me love being a missionary so much!
Spiritual Thought Of The Week
Well this week I’m gonna keep the spiritual thought short cause the first part is long. So I just wanna testify that this truly is the only true church in the world. Restored by the Prophet Jose Smith. I got the opportunity to knock on a lot of doors this week and I decided to focus on the restoration. Just like the missionaries when the church was starting, declaring that God has called a prophet and the same church Jesus Christ established is on the earth again. Well I love being a missionary. I love all of you and I hope you all have an amazing week!
Lots of Love from Mexico,
