I cant believe its been 1 year since I stepped into the MTC. Time is going by so fast. Looking back on this last year i have been able to learn so much and increase my love for the Savior every single day. I'm grateful for my mission and hope to have an awesome last year of my mission.
This week was a good week. We were able to finish Julie Angel's lessons and get her ready for her interview. She passed! So her baptism will happen this week. So were super excited. She has actually started to invite her freind to sit in on the lessons and this week they both went to church together. So its super exciting. Shes super excited for her baptism.
Other than that i just want to bear my testimony that I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration. And that the Book of Mormon is true. Im also greatful for the living prophets we have on this earth. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

Hope you guys are starting off your new year awesome!
I know I did. We had the baptism of Chaddy this saturday. Its awesome to see his desire and how he was so excited to be baptized into the true church! Its truly awesome to see how the gospel works in peoples lives. So it was an awesome day and his mom also made it out to the baptism and his older brother baptized him!
Things went good also for Julie Angel. After church she worked with the young women to go reactivating. So thats super cool. We taught her about her covenant she will be making at baptism this week. And she's been reading the Book of Mormon even tho shes been super busy with school! So shes killing it. As for our other investigators. This week we gave out a baptismal date to the Torio family. We have really started to see a change of heart it Tatay. When we use to go to them we would have to gather his family for the lesson but now hes gathering his family telling everyone to listen to us. So we taught the plan of Salvation and extending an ibd to him. And he said he wants to keep searching our church to see if he wants to get baptized. We invited them to church too this week but unfortunately they didn't show. So hopefully next week we can take some members there with them and get them some fellowship. We also found a new family last night while we were finding. They are new to Liozon. So were hoping they can find some friends at church. We taught them about how its Gods plan for families to be together forever. So they are super pumped for us to come back and share again. Its the first time they've been taught by missionaries.
This week also we had exchanges with the Zone Leaders. I got to re unite with one of my old companions. Elder Leakehe. So it was fun to talk to him and work with him again. It was a blast! We worked in Iba.
So it was another good week to strengthen my testimony in the Savior and everything he has done for me! Even tho i am not perfect. I know if i do my best thats what the Lord wants! Let us all re evaluate ourselves and recommit ourselves to the Savior and His commandments this new year! So love you all! And Happy new year!
