Family, it's been so long.

Glad to hear that California went well and that everyone had a good time! Now it's time to get back to work.....haha. It will be fine, just take it day by day and know that each day you can work your hardest!  Well we've been doing super well here in MEXICO!  Just working hard and pleading for miracles! We are finding a lot of super awesome people, and almost all of them have some pretty big problems that are sometimes difficult to solve or it's difficult to help them in the best way possible...but we had some super cool experiences where the spirit literally just put the words into our mouths and all we had to do was open our mouth and speak! 

We have an investigator right now named Gibran and his family also are investigators.  But they had something super wild and super sad happen to them recently....this is a family of about 5 kids, who are all adults now. anyway, in a crazy freak accident 4 of the 5 kids were with the dad one day and were all killed...and so now the rest of the family is just super super down and we have been visiting with them a little bit to help them out. Yesterday, it got super intense and the mom was telling us that she no longer believes in God and that she is super super angry with the world and I literally didn't know what to say....but I remember that we just started to testify to her that God really does love her and her family, and a few scriptures came to my mind that we shared with her and after that, she just changed the beginning of the lesson we asked her if we could pray and she said....whatever, I have nothing to do with God....and now, she was paying so much attention and you could just tell that she was feeling the spirit!  After all this, we invited her to say her own personal prayer that night and she commited to do it along with everyone else in the family!  The spirit was so strong at that moment and it was impossible to deny that that was the love of God that was upon us in that moment!  I pray with all my heart that she said that humble prayer that she commited to say that night, because I know that if she has prayed, she will feel the love of God enter into her heart and she will know without a doubt that He is there and loves her!!

We also have an investigator named Alexis, he is the son of a less active member of the ward or better said, inactive member considering that she hasn't gone to church in about 15 years! But Alexis has gone a few times with his grandma and really liked the church when he went. We met the family and invited them to a family home evening that we were going to have in the house of a member. we showed up the night of the family home evening and only Alexis was we asked him if he wanted to come and he said yes, so we went and we had a SUPER awesome lesson with him. He remembered all the feelings that he felt when he went to church with his grandma and so we invited him to church and he said that he would come and also that he would invite his whole family to come also!  Sadly, they didn't!  Oh well, I hope that we will be able to see them again this week so we can help them come to church this week!  But Alexis is super awesome, he just needs a little bit of family support.  Pray for him....porfissss! (por favor)

Anyway, things are great. I had my first meeting as zone leader which is called's where all the zone leaders in the whole mission meet one day in the house of President Cantu and we talk about what we can do better in the mission. It was super awesome and way powerful....learned a lot!  thats the pic I sent by the way! 

Other than that, just here loving the mission....smiling every minute that I'm here because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE MISSION!!!!!!! WHOOOO! love you tons.
