Hello peeps!!!

So a weekend of craziness!! Well lets begin with the good news!! So this week we had 4 investigators in sacrament meeting and were able to post another Baptismal Date in June so the future is looking really great here in Salvarcar and Im so excited for the investigators that we have!!

However now for the big news of the week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had cambios (transfers) and i am headed to Casas Grandes in a ward called Laguna!! I am going to be the DL there and my new companion is Elder Orton and Im freaking pumped because hes american!! Also he is from Beaver, Utah so i am almost 100% sure that the Jessups know him!! I talked to him once before and he says he knows Haydn or something so that will be cool!! Its really weird to think that i have only been here 2 weeks and now i am getting changed to the other side of the mission like seriously tomorrow i will be in a bus 4 hours just to get to my area.  Also we are both gonna be new to the area so yeah wish us luck hahah!!! So nothing to crazy happened this week well besides what i just told you oh and also so we were walking in like this desert area and i just wasn't like paying attention to anything and then i seriously
almost stepped on this dead dog but like it was freaky cuz i was walking and then all of the sudden i just see the face of this dead dog and literally i jumped into my comp cuz i was so scared and well yeah just a crazy experience!!

I love you all and know that this church is true and can change lives, i hope you all have a fly week and as always stay classy!!

Love Cam

So this is a foto of me and one of the misioneras en my zona and she is from st. geezzy so that was freaking cool!! Her name is Sister Miranda and she went to Dixie so yeah super tight!

Buenas Tardes People!!!

A huge shout out to the greatest old man on the planet my dad!! Today he turns like 64........i mean 46 hahahah!! JK dad!!! But seriously i hope you have an amazing B day! You really are my hero and the greatest pops in the world and am so grateful to be your son!!

We had a really solid week here in Salvarcar!!! With 5 people coming to church and we also posted the baptisms for Genesis and Arturo in June!! So yeah a really great week!! It has been a little hard to get adjusted to the new area because i was so accustomed to being in La Cuesta but i am starting to get used to it and absolutely love being here in the Este because there is so much work!! Also something really cool happened on Friday!! We were walking down one of the streets here and then all of the sudden Somebody yells ELDER and so i turn around and guess who it was?................Demetria and Maggie!!! I was so psyched like seriously it was so great to see them!! They say that all is going well back in la cuesta and that they miss me a ton hahahah!!! JK!!! But yeah it was really neat to get to talk to them!! Also other crazy thing happened this week well actually this morning!! So we now have a washing machine in our house HALELUJAH!!! When i was washing my clothes this morning i literally almost flooded the house hahah!! So the washing machine has a tube connected to it where the water exits and the hose leads to our sink so that it will drain!! But today i didnt realize that like a fork was blocking the drain so when the water started to exit all heck broke loose and our house nearly flooded hahah!! But after a mini panic attack i was able to fix it all and the house is now somewhat back to normal hahahah!!! So yeah i had a super legendary morning hahah!!

But anyways thats super crazy that school is out and i hope and pray that you all survive the trek hahah!! I will try and send pictures next week cuz we werent allowed to take any this week!! Sorry mom!! But so cool about all the mission calls tell chase and stacy to be careful!! hahah!! They will be great!! The mission is amazing and i know that it changes lives! Not only the lives of the people you serve but also the life of the missionary!! I am so grateful to be out here in the mission and just want you all to know that i am doing great and love you all!! Take care and Keep it real!!

This new area is pretty chill i dont know like any of it and am just trying to find my way around but its ok!!! The new apartment is solid! A little bit smaller than my last one but still pretty good!!  To answer some of your questions Well i thought we had hot water because the last couple of days i have showered with it but today who knows what happened cuz well yeah there wasnt any hahahaha!!! We do have a stove and also a washer which is amazing because now we wont have to spend that much money to clean clothes!! Hecks yeah!!! hahahah!! My new comp is super solid and is helping me a ton!!! Im not gonna lie it was really hard to just get up and leave La Cuesta like when they called us on Wednesday my heart kind of sank for a minute and i got kind of sad cuz like well Duhh La Cuesta was my home!! hahah but i am excited for this new area and this new experience!! Who knows how long i will be here but imma try to make the most of it!!

Hey guys!!!

So it was another rough week here in La Cuesta!! I mean we have been able to find new investigators and they all say that they love the church and want to go but then sunday rolls around and well yeah apparently they change their minds!! hahah jk!! Its ok we just gotta work harder!! So we actually had a zone conference this week and the Mission Pres came and talked to us and it was super cool and inspiring like seriously one of the coolest capacitations i have ever recieved! (idk if capacitation is a word in english but im pretty sure it is so yeah but you get the point haha!!)

Now for the big news we are actually not going to be able to talk on Mothers Day............................ hhahahah jk i just wanted to freak mom out hahah!! So i will call you guys via Skype on Sunday afternoon around 5 or 5 30!!! Probably like 5 30 so yeah just plan for that!! But that totally blows for K but just keep studying buddy and yeah you'll get it!!

So nothing to crazy this week besides the fact that we saw a canibalistic dog this week!! And like it wasnt a stray dog from the street, it totally has an owner cuz we have met him before but yeah we were walking down a street and just off the side of the road you see this dog just eating the body of this other dog!! My companion and i were like no freaking way but its the straight up truth and well yeah there are just no words to describe it hhaha!!

So not a huge letter this week cuz like yeah it was just another pretty normal week!! But i do want to end with my testimony about prayer because like something kind of really cool happened!! This week i was having trouble staying focused on the missionary work and my thoughts were in other things and so i like decided to pray and then it was really cool cuz i just randomly opened up a Liahona and there was an article on how to control our thoughts and become better focused!! So yeah it was just a really cool experience i had and i just want you all to know that i know god lives and that he will help us with any challenge we have if we will just ask him and exercise our faith!! Anyways thats all for me this week!! Love you all and Keep it real!!
