Yo sé que esta iglesia es la única iglesia verdadera de Dios aquí en la tierra y que El Libro de Mormón es verdadero. Es increíble para ver el cambio en las vidas de las personas que estamos enseñando cuando ellos empiecen a vivir los principios del Evangelio de Jesucristo. Uno puede ver cuando ellos realmente tienen fe en la expiación de Jesucristo y que pueden ser limpios de sus pecados. Yo sé que esta es Su obra y Él no nos va a dejar solos.

En el nombre d e Jesucristo, Amén.  

I know that this church is the only true church of God here on the earth and that the Book of Mormon is true. It is incredible to see the change in the lives of the people who we are teaching when they start to live the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One can see when they really have faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and that they can be clean of their sins. I know that this is His work and He won't leave us solo in this work.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

I'm going to start with the things I didn't have time for last week (actually one I forgot about two weeks ago and didn't have time for last week).

So two weeks ago we went on exchanges and so I was here with our district leader (Elder Haubner). we were looking for a referrals we had received the week before from the other elders but hadn't been able to find the person yet (the house yet but no one was ever home). It was going to be the last thing we were going to do before going home. As we were about to leave a drunk stopped us and wanted help. We told him we couldn't help him (at the moment because he was drunk) but gave him a card with our number on it so he could call us when he was "ready" (read not drunk). as we were about to leave he asked us our names and so we told him. he then tried to repeat our names but wasn't anywhere close. instead of saying our names he gave us cool nicknames. I don't remember what he gave to Elder Haubner but he gave me the nickname of "Panther" it was awesome!! It is defiantly the coolest nickname I have ever gotten... and it was from a drunk person in Mexico. I thought it was awesome.

A* AND G* CAME TO CHURCH!!!!! it was awesome!! It is one of the greatest feelings when your investigators come to church. The cooler thing was that they committed to come every week from now on!! Now we just need to do everything we can to help them keep that commitment (and also get married but they are working on that).

So this week I passed one year. yea it really has been that long. So weird. now I am on the down side. over the hump. on my way out. whatever you want to call it I'm officially old in mission terms. I just hope I can make the most of this last year.
