Hey fam, hope all is going good at home. So this week my comp was sick again so we worked a little less this week. But he is all good now. So Limberg came to church again and he is still on for his date for the 24th, he just has a little fear about after his baptism making the same decisions after, but he is going really well, his is progressing a ton and honestly is ready for baptism he just needs some help to realize how much he has changed. So the family Vallejos had basically stopped progressing but we had a lesson with them saturday and well it went pretty well and they are excited again and came to church too. So well not much else happening, we do have a ton of other investigators progressing but those are the ones progressing the most. But everything is going all good, Im learning so much everyday how to be a better leader and a better missionary, the mission is honestly so awesome haha. Love and miss you all! Also wouldnt mind to know whats going on with everyone at home haha

Hello fam hope all is going well at home! So this week was pretty normal again nothin to crazy. Limberg, the 20 year old that we are teaching, is progressing really well. He came to church Sunday for his first time and liked it alot. He has a baptism date for the 24th. But everything is going really good with him. So this Saturday we finally got to go to a pueblito( that just means a small little village place in the middle of nowhere)!!! So first of all my area is already the farthest area in this city basically already in the middle of nowhere. So we went from the middle of nowhere to farther into the middle of nowhere. It took about 45 minutes to get there and wow it was seriously so pretty because its just like all grape vineyards. Its pretty cool Im pretty sure it has the most grape vineyards in the world. Miles and miles and milesa of just straight grapes and they are really good. (They also drink a tonnnn of wine here haha). We only went there cause there are active members that drive 45 minutes every Sunday to come to church. Well things are going pretty good here just the time is going by wayy to fast its crazy. But man I love the mission. Well love and miss you all!!

Hmm.. so a pretty normal week out here. A ton of rain but its all good becasue its not blazin hot. Soo I dont got much to say honestly. Like we are teaching a ton of people and some of them have dates. And then some are just like super awesome investigators but they dont come to church and well thats been the challenge recently is getting the investigators to church. We go to pick them up and we call but man its been tough. But I have hope that our investigators that are progressing with a date for this next month should be able to get baptized. But man its honestly so cool being a missionary, and not just any missionary but a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ. My testimony grows every day of the truthfullness of the restored gospel as I study it, pray about it, and teach about it. Without doubt we are in the truth church that is lead by a living prophet. Hope everyone is all good at home and I hope everyone is establishing correct traditions in your life. Welp love and miss you all! Ayy also if you would like, you could send me a message! chau chau.

Well fam this sunday , monday and tuesday was spent in this house sleeping, studying, and we were able to watch that new disney movie Coco and its super good. Then we started wroking wednsday again and wow, everything about pooped out here. We have been working with Fam vallejos to get baptized saturday and then 2 days, saturday, we were in a lesson in their house and their oldest daughter went to a young adult activity in the stake center and apparently the music was pretty innapropriate and she bascically told us that she wants nothing to do with this church sooooo that affected the whole family and well now the parents got cold too so that was honestly just super sad. we havent lost all hope but it doesnt look like they are getting baptized soon. And our other progressing investigators basicallly fell off the face of the earth too, so basically our area died lol. But im not discouraged, because I know for sure that there are people in my area that are prepared for the gospel, because this is God`s work! We just gotta find em haha. Well today are the tranfers but my companion and I are both staying in the area. We get along super well so no problems there haha. This Wednesday there is like this country wide stop where no is gonna be able to use any tipe of transport in protest of the president here so another day in the house lol. Besides that everything is all good here, just a grindin. Well love and miss you all!

So this week we did a tonnnn contacting without much results haha. But they people we did find are super awesome. So this week we passed by Family Vallejos who we have been visiting for about 2 months now and they told about some of the feelings that had been feeling when they have gone to church and when we have passed by their house. But they wanted a little more time to prepared for their bautism and so they have a date for the 24 now. I have no doubt they will get baptized that day. So wow we went to go contact in a new part of our area and man they are super hard catholics. He made me a little mad and well we left from him a pretty heated. We pulled out scriptures because he was talking about how we are sexists for not worshipping mary, it was actually pretty funny to hear that lol. But yeah we did an iron rod activity in the church this thursday and we bascially planned everything and it was pretty stressful but it turned out well. So in our branch about 50 attend. But 2 families have recently left and 2 more families are leaving soon, so our attendance is dropping supper fast, but the members we have hear are super awesome so its all good. Well this next weekend is carnival, so that means everyone is gonna get drunk for 3 days straight and we have to stay inside for those 3 days,sunday, monday and tuesday basically just studying and eating. Well thats about it fam, so every week is getting faster and faster, its soo crazy, i been realizing how little time i have left to be a full time missionary, So man I gotta alot of stuff to do still haha. Well love and miss you all!!

Well, it was a pretty normal week here. It rained at tonnnnn, basically destoyed my shoes walking in so much mud. But we were able to find some really good people this week just knocking doors. We are working with the Family Vallegos who has a baptism date in 2 weeks. They are super awesome, and going to church, but they havent recieved a testimony of the Book of Mormon so thats what we are working on right now, and finish up teaching all the commandments. And well we are working with a ton of other people too, they are just progressing a lot slower, but there is teenager, Christian, who was a date for 3 weeks that is progresing pretty well, so Ill keep yall updated on him. We went to the center today to buy some stuff and a bunch of people were trying to rob and pickpocket us it was pretty funny. Some old lady started screaming at us to leave Bolivia because, well i dont know why but it was funny haha. Well thats about it, just feeling stressed out for my district. Miss and love you all!

So this week we had the visit of Elder Falabella from the 70. So it was pretty sweet to get to just talk and learn from his. He talked about how we are set apart to be Full Time Missionaries not part time and how we need to repent for not talking every single person about the Restored Gospel. So he wanted us to commit ourselves to also be looking for opportunities to teach and testify of the Gospel, it was a cool conference. So it was a super cool Sunday cause we were able to get 9 investigadores to the church. Family Vallegos came again, they are the family of 5 that has a date for the 10 of Febrero. They`ve liked the church alot, and they`ve made some friends in the church, now we just have to help them obtain a testimony to arrive to their goal! They are super great and Always have a ton of questions. So thats about this week. Its been raining a ton here, its super green and pretty. My comp and I get along really well too, so everything is going prettty good! Just a little stress with my district haha. Miss and love you all! Photos: We went to a super dope place with some members, like an hour driving through straight jungle
