May 29, 2017

I LOVE THE PICTURES!  Looks like Pajaro Dunes and the BYU basketball camp was a good time.  So crazy to think that Parajo Dunes was the last family vacation we all took together as a family. Where has time gone? So crazy to think that it has been a YEAR exactly tomorrow. Going to burn a skirt or a shirt for this event haha Everyone looks so good! I have the the best family and cousins :)  This week was a lot better than last week - we were able to work!  We tried doing contacts a bit different this week and contacted youth and young adults.  We had great success with this crowd - we helped them with their faith in Jesus Christ. (just broke my heart seeing other crowds doing drug deals right in the park)  Everyone definitely needs the message of their Savior that teaches them that each of them have a purpose.  We also recieved a new investigator, Beatriz.  We taught her about the Restoration and I just loved when she admitted to us that she has never thought about why there are so many churches.  
Conference was also a good experience - the main focus was how we should try and teach the youth and focus on them. It amazed me that so many missionaries in our mission were converts and serving full time missions! (like Kimmie) President Evans also talked about the covenant of Abraham and how our time in the mission prepares us - do we want to live a celestial life or be those of the other 2 degrees of glory.  We are also teaching Naty - she has been an investigator for a while, but we believe that we can possibly set a baptismal date with her soon.  Please pray for her - she has been changing drastically (for the better) We also started english classes - was so funny hna roncallo spelled english wrong - we couldn't stop laughing and had to just take pictures with the sign.  The mission sure isnt easy all of the time, but someday I will be able to look back and be glad that I went through it. Our P day has been good - we went to the hospital though (we think hna roncallo has a paracite) we also went to this yummy salad place in Asuncion, and later we are going to do a Family Home Evening with a less active family. Hope you all have a good week. LOVE YOU ALL
