June 15, 2015 letter

Wahoo ¡Copa América!  Just Kidding haha no we don't watch any of it, but its hard not to know the score when Chile is playing because every time they score a goal everyone screams and shouts and honks their horns. It makes being in the Street pretty entertaining. ha

If you don't know what Copa America is ask someone that is into soccer. ha This year Chile is hosting and its EVERYWHERE. But Still the work goes on!

So this was the last week of this Change, we will have changes this week but hopefully we don't have any changes! HA do you understand? Anyways we were able to find a few new people this week in the search for the chosen people! We found Juan Cerda using the area book of old investigators, he runs a small auto repair from his house. The missionaries found him a year ago when there were sisters in that part and someone stole their stuff, he saw the guy and went and brought their stuff back to them he is a good guy hopefully he comes to church. Carolina, my Comp Elder Alvarez found with Elder Osuna from Mexico in an interchange with the ZL. (Zone Leaders) The next day my comp and I went to teach her and invite her to the Activity we were having in the Church. She came and then on Sunday she came as well, and she will also be going to mutual this week with the Young women.  She is 13 years old, and was baptized a few weeks ago in the catholic church, but now if all goes well she is going to be baptized in a few weeks.  I mention her baptism, because she is very awake spiritually it's cool so see that she wants to have knowledge of these things at such a young age, and she even brings her three year old sister with her (scarlet). We will see how it goes with them this week!

This week I am finishing up 3 Nephi to be able to finish the Book of Mormon for the second time this year by the end of June. I love the Book of Mormon. There are so many keys to like hidden inside. In 3 Nephi 1: 23 - 25 you can find the key to world peace. If everyone received a remission of their sins and was then instructed to leave the false teachings and convert themselves more fully the world would be a lot more peaceful and happy place. I know that takes a lot of work and that a lot of people have to humble themselves to be able to do it, but it should start with us. Christ didn't come to pay for the sins of a select few that were able to find their own way to the  truth. No he came to teach the Gospel and die for "all those who would receive it" how can they receive it if we are not like Nephi in the scripture and we don't make things happen. In 3rd Nephi the Nephi that is spoken about there is underrated a lot of the time he raised his brother from the dead. He was able to do these things because he lived in perfect righteousness. I hope that we can all learn a little from 3 Nephi. Not only does Christ himself come and Teach but in Chapters 1-10 there are plenty of Examples for us to have a happier life.

Have a great week! And Happy Early Fathers Day to everyone!
