Hello Family and Friends and Neighbors and others!!

This week was easily one of the best weeks if not the best week in my entire mission!! So first off i had the opportunity to go to the temple with Demetria and it was amazing to go in and feel the peace that was there!! I havent gone to the temple in over a year and a half so it was kind of nice to have a refresher course right before i go home! haha!! Also it was amazing because we were able to put a baptismal date with one of our investigators for next week and she asked me to baptize her and she went to church yesterday and yeah im super pumped!! And then finally on Sunday Miguel came to our ward to see me and told me that his papers are in and that the stake president told him his calling is gonna arrive this week.  He is then going to fly to Mexico City to take out his endowments with his older brother and the date he put for his availability was the 4th of July so he will probably be headed out here really soon!!

The mission has truly been amazing.  It has had its ups and downs but it has truly changed my life and im so grateful i made the decision to come!! Im really excited for my last week and cant wait to see all of you guys!! Thanks for all of the support these last 2 years and Happy birthday to Koby and Carter last week!! You guys are freaking old!! Peace and Love!!

Hello Family!!!

So this week was a much better week than last week like a tons better!! To start we had 4 people in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday and 2 of them we plan to put bap dates with this week or next so that will be cool!! We were able to work a lot more efficiently this week because idk we had less meetings and it just seemed like we had a lot more time!! Also pres derbez left this week and it kinda sucked because we didnt even get to say goodbye!! He didnt go to the meeting we had on Wed. and then left on Friday!! Its ok though!! We had the welcoming meeting with President Owen on Friday and it was cool he seems really chill and i have an interview with him on tuesday to renew my temple recomend so that will be cool!!

I talked to Demetria this week and the bishop of La Cuesta and it looks like Demetria will more than likely enter the temple on Thursday or Friday of this week so my fingers are crossed haha!!

Im doing really good here in Amp!! I feel normal and am so grateful for all that i have learned. I wouldnt trade this experience for the world!! The mission has changed my whole outlook on everything and im so glad that i came!! It was definitely worth it!! Keep it real everyone and ill see
y´all soon!!
