Divisions with Elder Florez & Lisandro

Hola familia!

this week has been a super fun one that's for sure, this week we have been focusing a lot more on contacting in every opportunity that we have. The mission right now has been teaching lots about desire to share the gospel and talking with everyone! But letsss see what happened this week haha hope I can remember all of it!

This week I had a super cool experience on Friday on a division with Elder Florez. I've known elder florez since I was out in Concepcion and it was really cool to get to work together for a day. First off it was just one of those days that goes by super super fast, we worked so hard it was the best. We found a familia called the familia mesa that all accpeted to be babtized, and they're super rad and I can't wait to see how they progress. On the division we went by Lisandros house and we had a super funny lesson with him haha. we were teaching lesson 3 about the gospel of Jesus Christ and like midway through we ask him about his life before his babtism and then we talked about how he feels right now and all the changes that has happened. Then we asked him if he wants others to have the same change he has had and feel the same happiness that he is feeling right now and he goes, "of course!"so we just look at him and were like... Get changed man were going to find some people right now and your coming with!! hahaha you should have seen his face, he was like for real?! I get to go out with you guys?!?! he was soooo pumped to get out and get to be with the missionarys for the day. We had a couple sweet lessons and contacts with him and he was lovin it. His testimony was soo SOLID, and he helped us put a baptism date with an investagador we have for the 28th of November. Lisandro is such a stud, he'd gonna be the best missionary. 

okay I don't have lots of time left but another cool moment was this sunday when Lisandro and Junior were able to bless and pass the sacrament for the first time! in the branch here the missionaries usually have to do it a lot of the times because there aren't that many active priesthood holders but now we have a couple of studs to fill in for us. oh and i had to give another talk in sacrament this sunday haha its kinda normal now that they just tell us an hour before the sacrament meeting and we have to have a talk all ready to go. but it was good, i talked on how the gospel helps us to get through our problems and trials in life.

Anyway hope life is good back home! love you guys sooo much!

Changes and Lisandros baptism

Hola familia!

This week was soo rad... first off we had changes! annnnndddddddddd looks like im staying! In cocuere, San Lorenzo and with my same comp Elder Cisternas from Argentina. I was sooo happy to get to stay because I was able to be here for Lisandros baptism! man that dude was so prepared for baptism it was crazy. I'll be sure to send all the pictures below for sure.

So at changes we traveled to anahi to get changes and my friend Elder Jensen our Zone leader was messin with me soo bad haha cuz they already knew all the changes. He was telling me all about how the chaco is and was like soo sorry bro you can't see your baptisms this change haha it was good when they finally told us the changes and he is the new assistent haha. But during the district meeting on tuesday to know changes i had a pretty cool moment in the mish just thinking about how far ive come and all the things ive learned so far. In that meeting the zone leaders asked me to teach a 15 min class to the whole zone of like 30 missionarys and it turned out to be a super dope class on the importance of the BOM and the Holy ghost in conversion. I was just thinking if you were to tell me i had to teach a class for 15 min in front of 30 people and in another language at the beginning of my mish i probably would have told you nooo way haha. but now it was super tranquilo, i actually really enjoy it now, getting to teach and finding ways to make it fun. 

Okay today is a holiday in paraguay ( I have no idea what holiday) haha but this is the only ciber we found that was open and they just told us their going to close in a bit so im gonna hurry and sent off as many picures as i can!

Love you all!
