Weekly Email: Missionary Journal!

January 8, 2018 ¡Aquì està mi vídeo de Año nuevo! There was a bunch a fireworks as well for the day of the dead, January sixth. About an 8th of what was before. It is getting so much easier to talk in Spanish. Some American missionaries have quite a hard time speaking in English now.

Happy New Year!!! and Sahiana’s Baptism!!

January 1, 2018 Oh my goodness. New Years Was Nuts. I tried to sleep but I could not, because there was music blasting everywhere. I could hear it clearly. I tried not to listen to the lyrics because we are not supposed to listen to it. From 9 o’clock there was at least 3 fireworks

100 Horas!

December 18, 2017 Before this week, it´s like my eyes were closed. It´s crazy. Our schedule was absolutely loco. We were out proselyting from 7 in the morning until 9:30 in the night. I got sunburned my first day. The rest of the time I wore sunblock to protect my face but mostly my arms.

Earthquake!!!

November 20, 2017 This week started off interestingly. After a super busy preparation day, we started our day planning. Elder Tafur wanted a blessing of comfort and we got 5 minutes into planning our day when the building vibrated at around 10 Hz (per second). We saw the construction workers outside running down from their

Trying to be on time

November 13, 2017 This week started off with an exchange with Elder Gibbons and it was really cool this time to get to write in his Journal of missionaries and to help him with investigators. We helped out some of the Sister Missionaries in the Sector called Condor which has a bunch of really steep
