November 11

Sunday the 9th of Nov, we baptized a mom and her son! The names are Martha and Julio! I got the change to baptized Martha it was really cool cause I felt really great and the Spirit was strong!!! I know when  I get to baptize my mom, I will feel the same way as Martha Baptism! It was a great day!!! Something crazy happen this week!! Theres a family in my area and the dad and mom and daughter arent baptized but the two brothers are! The dad lived in Utah for 10 years and had a family there, So hes married and he cant get baptized till he gets a devories for this wife in Utah but heres the crazy thing They got married in Las Vegas and now this wife in utah got remarried with someone else without the devores. He really wants to know if his marriage with her is real or not because he wants to get married to his future wife and be baptized! Somethiing really cool about him He knows evrything about the church, hes been to conference in Salt Lake, Hes been a investagor for 7 years and He use to live by the MTC in Provo! He know how every temple looks like cause he has visited them but never went in a temple! Thats my crazy story of the week! I really hope his marriage in Vegas is not real!!!!!! I have some pictures for you guys to see of the baptisms and one of a really cool wall that I found yesterday! 
I forgot to tell you guys something really important!! I was in my first Earthquake last Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really awesome and the earthquake was a small one and it was just for 3 seconds but really small!! Dont worry Im doing great!! 

Thats all, love you guys,

Hey everyone!! I have a new area its called Jacarandas 1 and its in Escuintla!! Im some what in the city now.. Its a pretty area! The members are really nice, They feed us lunch everyday!! This month our mission goal is 400 baptisms and guess what, We will reach this goal!! We have 3 investagors that are going to be baptized this weekend! Its really cool preparing people to come unto Christ and be in the path to our Heavenly Father, I know as a missionary its so great the feel of the Spirit When the people agree to be a member of the true Church!! The awesome thing of my area I can see 4 volcanos!! Just one of them is active and smoke comes out of it!! Its so Plias cause I have never seen a Volcano!! This week I been working to know my new area and the people, so I do not have a cool story but I will have a Plias story soon!!! My new camponion is from Peru and his name is Elder Aza!! Hes Plias!!

I have bad news this week!! Tomorrow we have Changes and I leaving my area!! I was a little sad but I'm excited to see who is my next companion tomorrow!! Yesterday and today, I will be saying goodbye to everyone in my area Sipacate. O well time to move on!! Hopefully I dont go to a cold area. I like the coast area!! So this week Steven didnt get baptized either, we decided to drop him cause his mom does not want me to believe in this church. It made me a little mad but I know its not his time yet. The super Pilas thing that happen this week is. We found a family that we are teaching. They have no kids yet. They are not married yet. His Name is Daniel and her name is Igrrel. Daniel is married to another women and they need to go through that progress, so Daniel can get married to Igrrel! Something really cool about Daniel he was in the Guatemala Army!! He told us some crazy stories!! Igrrel is a nurse!! When both were kids they went to The Church of Jesucristo De Los Santos De Los Ultimos Dias as kid. They never got baptized tho! On Sunday they came to church, everyone welcomed them, all the members were so nice with them!! Daniel and Igrrel decided to come to church every week and they will get baptize as soon as they can get married! I hate Daniel´s job cause it starts next and  week and they work everyday for 6 months straght. He works in the factory that makes sugar. He cuts down the plaint that the sugar is made from!! Thats my week!! Next week I will have pictures of my new camponion! Love you all

This last week was CRAZY. Somethings happen and some miricales happen. Sunday one of the members brought her sister to church and her name is Magdelina and her two daughters Susley and Andrea. After church we went to visit them. Magdelina told us her story. She was Cathilic before. Her husband left her and the family for another women But he has done this for many years then just comes back to her. This time he is gone for good. During the lesson She started to cry and I have no idea what to do. So I didnt do nothing haha. The great thing about it, Her and her daughters agreed to be baptized on the 26th of this month. Susely the Daughter is weird. I feel so uncomferable teaching her.  Andrea is so Pilas. She loves to read the book of Mormon. I love visiting them. Steven hasnt got baptized yet. We need a miricle to happen with him and his familly. I know that he is ready and hopefully this sunday is his baptism. We are also visiting one of our converts mom and brother. The mom is Consuelo and the brother his name is Carlos and he is 19 years old. Carlos has a girlfriend that we are teaching also her name is Victoria and she is 14 years old. They are planning to get marry...... Guatemala is a little crazy. They are doing great tho. We need them to come to church. My mission president said we need to have 400 baptisms as a mission in Novemeber. So every companionship needs to baptize at least 3 or 4 people. My area is one of the hardest in the mission but I know we will have 4 baptisms. I have faith on that and we will get our 400 baptisms for Novemeber. 

I would love if you guys can pray for my Family, Steven, Magdelina, Susely, Andrea, Consuelo, Carlos, and Victoria. They are our next bothers and sisters to come unto Christ!!!!!!! thats my week.  Love you guys all have a great week Love you guys Elder Vega

I will start out with conference wasnt it just amazing. I got to see it in English!!!!!!!! Its so much cooler when you can hear their real voices. The sad thing about this week Steven did not get baptized. his mom wont let him yet. We have not given up yet. last night we had a lesson about temples and that this is the only church in the whole world that can do baptisms for the die. She was so excited. After the lesson She asked us, what scriptures can I read about baptisms for the dead. I have a great feelings She will let Steven get baptized next week.. Keep him in your prayers. We are also teaching Jessica´s mom her name is Consuelo and she is really prepared but she cant read. Jessica is going to read with her everyday. The rest of my week is been working really hard!!!!!!!!!!! 

I love the mission even tho that conference made me a home sick but I wont leave this place till I'm done doing that the Lord commands. 

I hope everyone has a great week and I love you all!!!!!!!!!!
