The Big Email hahah

Startin off with the big ole Q´s. :)

-I didnt get transfered! And neither did my other 2 companions! Hahah we are todether again! (My 4th change with Elder Mertz!) Yes, we are still in good old ghetto Amengual!
-The week has been GREAT! We saw so many miracles this week. :)
-On saturday... i did not stay dry at all hahaha it was so funny i got soaked walking around all day. :) But yesterday i left more prepared. :)
-We have water to drink dont worry! Everything should be alright!
-I am a 10 1/2 or 11

Anyways! So I wanted to talk a little bit about this week! :) Solid week my friends.! Well, firstly... none of us had changes so thats great! I am officially ¨killing¨ my companion Elder Mertz (he goes home in 6 weeks). We are super happy to still be together and to just take out the freaking trash bappin the wurld. :)

This week was pretty crazy. The last week of changes is always pretty crazy. My companions and I had to run all around the zone doing inspections of the pensions, divisions with the Elders, and random meetings as a mission. Long story short... today we are pretty tired! But really excited for the new missionaries that just got to the zone. :) Even with working alot outside of the sector, the Lord blessed us a ton in our sector. 

This weekend as missionaries it was pretty rough because of the downpour of rain haahha. BUT, with the Lord on our side, nothing is impossible. We left Sunday morning to go find people to take to church and everybody had flaked out because of the rain. Well, we continued looking and inviting people to church until we went to a progressing investigator Rosa. When we invited her she first said no but changed her mind and came with us! After the meetings, we sat her down and asked how she felt during church. She expressed that she had never felt something so incredible in any other church she had gone to. MIRACLE! But get this... then after an active member walks up to us and expresses his gratitud of having brought Rosa to church. He told us that he had been inviting her to church for the past 22 years with the missionaries and she had never come. Rosa now has a baptismal date for the 30th of April.

The greatest part... we didnt do anything! The Lord does His work. I know that when we are obedient with exactness and work with all diligence putting our trust in our Savior Jesus Christ... The Lord blesses us and can bless those around us. Rosa is a miracle. I love this gospel. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that in the spring of 1820.. he saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I invite all those reading to ask of God to know that these things are true. I testify that they are and I promise that those who really ask, will receive because God loves us so much.

I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

With love killas

Connor FINALLY sent a regular email for everyone :) yay!

Hey everybody! Of course starting off with the questions from my motherr!

-I didnt forget but I ran out of time on the computer haha :/ Sorry!
-We saw all the sessions besides priesthood because it is too late at night. But we are going to watch it this week.
-Yes I am.
-I got the easter package! Thankyou so much! hahaha both of my companions were like your family really loves you hahaha. Love you guys so much.
-Havent gotten that package yet
-No... we havent felt any earthquakes lately. :(

So this week was great! We all know that it was the week of General Conference which is always GREAT. Some of the cool things that happened this week started on Tuesday of this last week. The leaders of the West Mission had the opportunity to meet with Elder Allen (President of the Mission Work Board hahahah i dont know how to say it in English). He met with the mission to ask simple questions about the mission and its immense growth in converts in these past two years. Not going to lie, one of the coolest experiences ever to be able to talk and discuss points of the mission work with a general authority. I felt very humbled to be in his presence and for the notable success in the mission.

Also, last night the Lord showed us His tender mercy as we ran back to the sector to work for the one little hour we had before we had to go into the pension to plan and sleep. Well, one of the FIRST doors we knock on, the Family Diaz Paredes comes out and immediately lets us in. (Let it be known that this whole last weeek it was very hard for us to find new people who had sincere desires to come unto Christ) They are a family of three and have been looking for the gospel of Jesus Christ for some years now. Well, when we presented the message of the Restoration and invited them to baptism they accepted immediately! The spirit was felt very strongly during that lesson and walking out the door as a companionship, we gave thanks to God for having led us to this incredible family.

Miracles exist. The Lord loves us so much. I truly know and testify with all my heart that Christ lives. His resurrection brings hope to all of us. The knowledge of His atonement must be spread across the earth to help others have this same hope and accept His TRUE gospel. That is the invitation today, GO FIND SOMEONE AND SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THEM!
