So to be honest I have no clue which transfer cycle was faster! This one or the last one! it's so crazy that the cycle is already over! Well seeing that i was with Elder Thomson for three months o guess it was nesicary to have changes! I am kind of sad to be honest because I have loved working with Elder Thomson! But at the same time I understand the Lord needs him in a different area now! Well to close up the cycle we had a good week! a little more productive! we found new people we put some new dates for baptism and a whole lot more! Also starting this week our holiday madness begins! so it has been a good but busy week!
Elder Thomson is being transferred to Amecameca right at the base of the volcano! But I am sad because I have really enjoyed my time with him! It has been a great three months! Opening this area with him has been so much fun! So because Elder Thomson is leaving I am reciving a new companion! And this is kind of cool........ my new companion is my "grandson".......... So that's a mission term and this is what it plays out to. Back in july I recived Elder Aguilar and I did his trainning and that means that i am his dad! Well he is now finishing the training of his "son" Elder Ponce from Honduras! well tomarrow i will be reciving elder Ponce as my new companion! So my new companion happens to be my "grandson"! It's really cool I am super excited to work with him and have some "family bonding time" Haha but Elder Ponce is going to be my first companion Latino that is not from Mexico! all the other Latinos that i have been with are all from Mexico!!! so it should be a lot of fun!!
To start off, this last week we had a guided visit of our capilla with a few new people we found this last week! We found this lady who is called hna. Xxxxxxx and her grand-daughter hermanita Xxxxxxx. On Wednesday we took them to the church and we had a guided visit with them! It was a cool experience because as we were there, there were a few members from our ward at the church for some stuff! So we introduced our investigators to the members and it was super cool! As we were finnishing up we were in the room where the baptismal font is.! Well we decided to put the date of Jan. 17 as the baptismal date! When we presented the challenge to them they both accepted without hesitating or thinking about it! It was super cool cause President Crickmore told us that is how we find chosen people or the people who are prepared for us! So it was super cool! Then last night we had an Hna. Introduce us to another new investigator who is called Xxxx! We went and we got to know the guy and he is super cool! We just explained the pamphlet of the Resturation to him and he accepted it and told us that he would gladly read it! As we were talking we inited him to come with us to church on sunday and he was like "ya i don't see why i would not be able to go!" We were like WOW that is so COOL! because usually when we invite people to come to church there like well i ddon't know we'll see or i'm not sure! So when said ya i dont see why not we were like SUPER COOL!!! But ya it was a good week!
"Well the weather outsides' not frightful my friends you look so delightfull where ever you go ther is sun there is sun there is sun"! So thats my version of "let it snow" because to celebrate the holidays we will be starting our "holiday madness" this week! So for example This week is super busy!! Tomorrow is transfers and the meeting that comes with that! Then Thursday there is a mission Christmas meeting/ party from 10 am to 5 pm! Then saturday afternoon we have the ward christmas party! so we are busy almost every other day this week! Then next week is crazy as well! On the 24th we only work till 6 pm then we spend the night till 10:30 with a family eating food and partying! Then Thur. 25th we don't work and we TALK TO OUR FAMILIES!!! Then the next week wed the 31st Is just like the 24th and that night we can pass the night with our distric or a family from the ward as we choose! Then Thur. the 1st we have a mission soccer tournament from 8am till 4pm so we can spend the rest of the nigh dead tired and numb from playing! So it should be fun!!
Well thats about it for this week! just a quick update on Xxxxxx our one footed (for right now) Investigator, We still have not gotten a response from the First Presidency but he is still super excited! He is a cool guy i hope we can get the permission to baptize him this cycle! To close I want to share a scripture from Alma that i love about prayer and the importance of praying! Its Alma 34:39: Yea, and I also exhort you, my brethren, that ye be watchful unto prayer continually, that ye may not be led away by the temptations of the devil, that he may not overpower you, that ye may not become his subjects at the last day; for behold, he rewardeth you no good thing. I Love that Scripture Because It's like D&C 10:5 urging us to pray always to overcome the temptations of the devil and not fall into his temptations!
I Love you all so much and I hope that you have a good week! Love you all and Feliz Navidad! :D
