#Embarking in the service :)

If there was a Grammy Award for most companions, in a heartbeat I’d win it by a landslide hands down. I can’t complain though, I love getting to know others. It’s honestly a blessing being able to learn from all their talents/weaknesses of each and every one of them. I’m pretty sure the fifteen of them have blessed my life…

¡Feliz Día Del Padre!

“Behold, it came to pass that I, Enos (Jacob), knowing my father that he was a just man – For he taught me in his language and also in the nurture and admonition of the Lord – and blessed be the name of my God for it.” – Enos 1:1 WARNING: Take severe caution, the following passage may cause extreme…

When we truly realize what we are, it changes whom we become

Last night while meditating on what I should share with you guys, as always I had no idea where to start. Many thoughts came to mind, “Our experience at the temple? Service project? The miraculous contacts that came to a ward activity and want to get baptized? Just a spiritual thought? or maybe the lesson we taught to a house…

Decisions Determine Destiny!

Mi nuevo compañero se llama Elder Escribano. Tiene 21 años, es de Chiclayo-Perú y nació en el convenio(primero latino comp que es del convenio). Ha servido en tres misiones, Arequipa, Puerto Rico y va a terminar conmigo aquí. Nos llevamos muy bien, tiene bastante talento y uno de ellos es jugar pelota 🙂 Básicamente estamos abriendo el área porque llegué…

He witnessed my birth & I shall witness his death

Here are your questions (be as brief or as wordy as you like/have time for in responding): 1. Name all the countries from which you have met someone while on your mission. We’ll assume you’ve met folks from the country you’re in, but feel free to list it too.tbh it would prob be easier to name the countries i haven’t…

Goodbye Dirt, Hello Trees

It has been a very successful 3 months here in Las Lomas, Huaycan for me. My companions and I have been able to turn the missionary work around and get it going in the direction it should be going. We have found, taught and touched the hearts of many here, many of which are preparing to get baptized soon. Looking…

Be of Good Cheer, Hope is Near!

Me dí cuenta de algo esta semana pasada mientras yo y mi compañero estábamos conversando en la noche. Estaba preguntando Elder Balcázar en que podría mejorar para ser un mejor compañero y de la nada me dijo “Nunca hé conocido un elder con tanto fé y buen animo como usted. Siempre esta animado y eso es algo que me gusta…

Rejoice with me; For I have found my sheep which was lost.

“What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours,…

Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool

As much as I would like to stay with a companion for more than one transfer for once, I can’t complain because I continue to be blessed with wonderful companions. Even though many other missionaries might like to judge, criticize and say negative things about others, each and every one of my companions have proved them wrong (at least when…
