October 16th, 2017 - Weekly Letter

Oi!!

Hey everyone! I hope you all find yourselves happy and healthy.

This week was good. The weather is so weird. It rained for about 2 months straight and now it's hot again....  -_-  Oh well.

Hermana Carolina passed her baptismal interview yesterday so she will be baptized either this week or the next. She's awesome. The others, Angel and Martin, are doing good too. Angel should be baptized this month too, but at the end.

Changes are this Wednesday, but they haven't told us who leaves or stays yet, so there's a good chance that I'll write you guys next week from a new area.

We're doing good and working super hard too. There's a lot of potencial in this area.

I love you all and know that I'm doing good. Have a great week and we'll talk next week!

Saluuu Pues!

Semana Loca!

Hey everyone!! I'm still alive..this week was super crazy! But it was a good one.

We were able to visit Hermano Angel and had a lesson with the Bishop present. Angel works for the bishop and so he trusts a lot in him. He wants to get baptozed so bad, he just needs to decide if he wants to get married or get separated from his partner. The problem is that they have a daughter together. But he's doing good. He also went to the baptism of the Hermanas on Saturday and he went to church and brought his 6 year old daughter Rosemery.

We found a new guy named Julio who is 23. He just got out of jail after being there for only about 2 days, but said that he wants to change and is super receptive. He has a baptismal date for the 4th of Nov.

Carolina and her daughters are doing alright. They couldn't go to church, but next week they will.

Martin and his son are doing great too. They have the goal to be baptized on the 28 of October. Martin went to church as well yesterday.

We're doing, my companion is driving me crazy a little, but that's the joy of training and also just being in the mission..jeje.

Also yesterday I did interchanges with Elder Brimley, the secretary of registros, and we totally watched a drunk lady fall off a 10 foot cliff. It was pretty sketchy...she lived..but it was sketchy...I'll tell you more details when I have time..maybe the skype call in 2 months jaja.

Anyways, all is well and next week are changes...I hope all is well wherever you all are as well.

I love you all!

Con amor, Elder Loveless

My last conference in the mission... ):

Hey everyone!! How are you all doing?? After receiving so much spiritual light this weekend, I'm ready to put a lot into practice.

This week we were able to find some new people and we also had 2 new investigators at the conference. Tomorrow we're gonna go visit them to see how they liked it.

It's been raining a lot...like too much, but this is the last month of the rainy season. I love these last 3 months of the year because it's nice and cool and doesn't rain.

We're still working super hard with Carolina, Xiomara, y Katherine. They're doing good. They're not drinking coffee, but it's hard for them to read and pray and go to church. Carolina is the mom and she's awesome. She is super excited to go to church, just her daughters need to go to church some more.

We're working hard and trying not to get wet.

Also my favorite talks were about how there are no such thing as consequences, all is inspired of God and I also liked the talk about truth and light. Also about service. They were all great jaja. Also the scripture from Proverbs 3:5-6 was used like 4 times. I really like that scripture.

Anyways, all is well in San Marcos, San Salvador, El Salvador. I hope you are all doing great. I love you all!


Saluuuuu Pues!!

Con amor, Elder Loveless

Weekly Letter
September 25th, 2017

Oi!

Hey everyone!

Sorry if this email is short...But we're doing good! This week was another good one! We worked hard and got super wet...here in El Salvador there are only 2 seasons: Hot and rain jaja. And each one lasts about 6 months. We're in the rainy season until about November...but that's all good.

This week we did service for one of our families of investigators, Hermana Carolina and we basically built her a new house...for not knowing anything about construction, we did a good job.

We made pupusas with some members and taught some good lessons. Hermano Samuel
yesterday got the priesthood and was made a priest. He's advancing super well and he's super awesome and excited. We're still looking for new people to teach..it's hard because here, everyone has a religion, but I've managed to do it for 20 months, so I can do it for 3 more jaja.

We're happy and getting along well. Also super excited for general conference!


I love you all and hope you all have a great week!

Saluuu Pues

Con cariño, Elder Loveless

Response to how members help out the missionaries:
When the members work, missionary work is A LOT easier. Presidente Hinckley said the a lot of people think that missionary work is just knocking doors and handing out pamphlets. But there's a way that's a lot easier. Use the members! They need to share the gospel with all of their friends and then invite them to their house and invite the missionaries. When this happens, a lot more people get baptized and stay active in the church!

Saluu!
