First off, WARRRRRIORRRRRRRS!!!!!! I've been missing the games
obviously but I've been hearing a lot about what's been going on so
just thought I'd get that off my chest. 2nd, I'm district leader now!
So that'll be interesting but people have said that it helps you grow
a lot. Which may or may not still be something I need. So to sum up
this week I'm just going to say that it involved helping a lot of
people through life. I won't get too deep into the details from this
past week but I will say I love helping people in any way I can. But I
barely do anything. It's the spirit and the gospel that really truly
helps us. This past week I had a super cool experience where someone
was telling me how they just feel so helpless and hopeless and that
nothing ever works right for them. I honestly had no idea what to say.
So I just turned my thoughts to the spirit. In my mind I asked real
quick, Father in Heaven what can I share with this person to help
them. Then I had one of the coolest experiences I've had in a while.
My thoughts were turned to the Book of Mormon and then I thought of
Moroni 7:48 which goes as follows:
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the
energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath
bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ;
that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall
be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this
hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
Now, for those who know me pretty well, you know I'm no scriptorian.
So I had no idea what the scripture said before I had the person read
it but I had such a strong feeling that the thought came from the
spirit and I followed it. After they read it, they started crying a
little and said that's exactly what I have to do. It was such an
awesome experience and it just proves that when we are in tune with
the spirit, we can work wonders!
Saturday night we had a baptism for this one lady who the other elders
are working with and that was another great demonstration of how much
this gospel helps people. She said how thankful she was for this
gospel and when she got out of the water she ran right to her sister
who is already a member and said how she literally felt like 1000
pounds was lifted off her shoulders. Then yesterday when she was
confirmed she was saying she could literally feel a difference and it
was really cool to see once again what this gospel can do for people.
The church is true people. Sin ninguna duda!
Now on a not so serious note, with some of the birthday money I
received last week, I went and bought a Mexican flag to put on my
proselyting bag and man was that a good idea! People were talking to
me left and right! I got the most street contacts I ever have in one
day on Saturday. I talked to 29 people on my own! I wanted to get 30
but I realized that my companion needed to talk a little so I pushed
him to go and get a contact. And I realized I haven't talked about my
trainee very much so here it goes! His name is Elder Wagley, he's from
Texas, he knows absolutely everything about the car industry and he's
gonna become an awesome missionary! So yeah that about does it from
this week! Here's the pictures! Sister Majano came to visit this week
1) Just like the old days (ignore my hat hair)
2) Soy de Puebla Puebla México
3) The girl the other elders baptized!

Sister Majano sent me some pictures too! She went up to Brooklyn for the Baptism and brought a cake for Ty's birthday!
