Woow. ¡Viva El Salvador!

Hey everyone! How are you all? Aquí estamos con todos los poderes como dicen aquí. Oh sea, we're all good here (;

This week we worked super hard. We're super busy with FHE's and trying to find a ton of new people. We also had a multi-zona and Elder and Sister Brough (I think he's the 1st counselor in the Young Men's General Presidency) came and they spoke to us and also Pres and Hermana Durán. It was super great. I liked it a lot.

Friday we had interchanges with the ZL and we both went to their areas to work with them. I worked with Elder Girón from Guatemala and it was a good day. We found a super cool family that I hope will progress!

On Saturday we contacted a couple of people in the street and they all turned out super good. One was named Carlos and he was cutting grass with his machete and so we asked if he wanted help and while my comp contacted him, I was busy cutting the weeds with a machete. I really like machetes. They're lots of fun. So yesterday we returned to teach him and he was outside waiting for us with his 8 year-old daughter Alexandra. They're such great people and we put baptismal dates with Carlos. We'll put another one with Alexandra this week. Also we contacted a  guy named Roberto who was really interested. We're gonna teach him on Saturday.

We also brought Karla and her family to church yesterday. She liked it a lot and said she's gonna do her best to go next week.

So yeah, it was a great week. I love you all and hope you all have a fanastic week.

Also happy 19 months to me! I gotta keep working harder because the time goes too fast...But I love you all and hope you all have a great week. We'll talk next week!

Cuidense mucho!

Con cariño, Elder Loveless

Hey cheros

Hey everyone! Happy day! I hope everyone is doing good and is happy!

This week was a good one. We worked hard and found a couple of new people. The old people...not a lot of them want to progress. So we need to find some more new. It's been hard getting people animated to go to church.

Everything is good. Pretty normal. We're working hard and we're trying to find new people to bring to church. We're learning a lot and I also am working more on developing charity. I've been serving my companion without him knowing, which I've never done in my mission, and I feel like it's helping, because like it says in Mosiah 2:17, if we serve our fellow man, we're serving God, and if we serve Him more, we'll love him more. It's been a good week. We're working hard and praying a lot to find the people that God has prepared for us to teach and convert.

Everything is good. I love you all and hope you all have a great week. Be the best at what you do (:

Con cariño, Elder Loveless

Best and Worst of the Past Week:
Best- I bought a new suit, 2 new ties and cool new belt!
Worst- Nobody went to church...

No Sé... Todo bien

Hey everyone! I hope all is well with everyone!

This week was a good one. I did interchanges with Santo Tomás, Los Alpes (the secretaries) and with the ZL. They were all really good. I learned a lot and I also did the interview for Nelson from Santo Tomás. On Saturday he was baptized.

On Wednesday we had interviews with Presidente Durán and they were really good. He's a very direct guy and yea...we'll just leave it with that. He re-animated me to keep working and he also reminded me that in a race, the end is when you run the hardest. It's the same in the mission.

We found some great people this week and we had an awesome FHE with some members and Hermana Karla and her 3 kids that are investigators. We're working hard and praying hard too.

I also ate rabbit for the first time in my was really good. But yeah, it was a really good week. I'm animated again to work my butt of for these last 4 1/2 months that I have left.

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

Saluuuuu Puesss!

Con Cariño, Elder Loveless

I love that guy."

Hey, it's me--again jeje

Hey everyone! How are you all?? I hope good!

This week was...well...a rough one. My companion was sick so we didn't leave Monday-Thursday. Thursday in the morning, we went to the temple to have the temple tour that we have every April and August with the investigators, less actives and members. That went well.

Friday we did leave and we found 2 new investigators and put baptismal dates with them. They are cool. We'll see them again tomorrow.

I ate a pineapple too that I bought. It was really good.

We also found a partial family where the dad is less active for yearssss and his wife and 3 kids aren't members. We'll be working with them too.

Probably the best thing about the week is that today, my lunch from Subway was free because I have a Subway card. That made me happy. But all is well and yeah...not much happened this week...oh and also I finished the Book of Mormon! I loved it. Now I'm reading the Pearl of Great Price and on Saturday I'll start the DyC.

I love you all! Have a great week!

Cuidense mucho. Les amo mucho!

Best and Worst of the Past Week:
