CREE This week was another great one. We are seeing a ton of miracle left and right and are trying to be as diligent as possible so they keep coming! The Suberia Family and Coral Family are doing amazing. Both of those families came to church and are progressing really well towards their baptismal dates in May. Also, this guy named Isaid is the man. His family are members in Mexico and he walked into church about a month ago and he's going to get baptized in May! So yeah, things in El Rancho are poppin' off right now and it's so much fun. The members are starting to get more and more involved and some really amazing things are coming together. Also, the Rubio Family who Elder Rivas and I baptized almost a year and a half ago the first time I was here are probably going to get sealed in May!
This week, Elder Merrill and I were tracting in a trailer park and we knocked on this door and this lady let us right in and said how she's been to our church before and wants to start going again and get baptized. So that was fun. It's very rewarding to be a full-time missionary right now. There are prepared people EVERYWHERE we just gotta find them. Finding the elect is a fun process."Go where your celebrated, not where you're tolerated." -Eric Thomas
Brandon (former Elder Candelario) is in our Ward and got back from his mission about 2 months ago from Mexico City. He's a complete beast and we had him train our zone on helping investigators keep their commitments. Throughout my mission I've loved working with recent RMs because they're full of really good ideas and insights to move he work forward.
We had the "Rovers" or traveling trainers come to our zone this week. They are Elder Sawyer (my former companion) and Elder Taylor (he was born in Panguitch). Rovers go around to each zone and we send them to various companionships and they work with them one on one and help build up each area. It was helpful to be able to be able to send them to companionships and have another set of eyes on the North zone to give us feedback. Elder Sawyer ends his mission in 2 days everyone! I just wanna give a shoutout to him and say how great of a missionary he is. He left a legacy in Vegas! He's going home 1 week early because his brother is marrying Ty Detmer's daughter this weekend. I love you Elder Sawyer!
My mom always gets mad at me for not having enough pictures. The only people that would take pictures with us were these ceramic lawn figures.
I'm grateful for this special time I have to be a missionary. Love you guys!
