August 1st, 2016 – Weekly Letter

Viviendo la vida loca!

Hey everyone! Greetings from a very very very hot La Unión!

This week was good! Elder Arirama and I are learning a lot together. This week I was a little bit down, but I'm fine now because I've learned that there are many things that we don't have control over. It's been soooo hot here and it's been raining like crazy. When it rains, it pours like none other. It's kinda scary. Adrian is doing very good as well. He passed his baptismal interview, we got permission for him to get baptized and he went to church yesterday! We changed his baptism to the 13 of August which is the next Saturday, but I'm really excited because he is awesome and he is so converted. I love watching how the gospel changes lives.

We are working tons with the members and I can honestly say finally that I love my area. I love the members, the bishop, and the missionaries with whom I'm serving. The mission changes people, especially the missionaries. The month of July, Elder Arirama and I didn't baptize, but we re-activated 2 less actives so that's good! One is named Hna Sandra and she is awesome. She was baptized in September of last year and inactivated herself because she had a bunch of operations and was sick. Now, she's happier than I have ever seen her. She is doing so good. Fam Carcamo is still waiting the long process of the divorce...Other than that, we're working our butts of so that we can baptize 2 people this month and prepare the area for the next change and for September.

We will be going to the temple of San Salvador this Thursday with investigators, less actives and families that can be sealed soon, to have an activity ( the same that we had in March). Presidente and Hermana Vásquez came to our ward yesterday and Presidente spoke. I love them so much. They have such strong testimonies. Yesterday, my companion told me how hard it would be to train and all this stuff and I just laughed...because it's true. But I've grown so much, training my companion. Life is good here in La Unión. It's always hot, but we survive. I'm learning a lot. Also I've been studying temples a lot. Jesus always taught around or on the ground of the temple in Jerusalem. Temples have always existed and are literally the house of the Lord. When Jesus Christ showed himself to the Nephites, where did he appear???? The temple!! (3 Nephi 11:1) The temple is amazing. I can't wait until I can go again. Anyways, all is well here. I hope you enjoy the pics. We had fun taking them haha. I love you all and I'll talk to you next week!

Saluuuuuuuuuuu Pues!!!
