HOW HAVE YOU GUYS APPLIED THE ATONEMENT OF JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFES EVERYDAY? Think about it! Did you do the right thing? Did you help that person that needed help? Did you pray? Did you repent? Did you read the scriptures? Did you give thanks? There is many way you can apply the Atonement everyday! The Atonement brings us peace, joy, and consuelo to our lifes! I dont understand completely the Atonement but I do know that Christ to our names and paid the price of our sins! I love Alma 34. Its a great chapter that speaks about the Atonement when Amulek testifica que la palabra esta en Cristo para la Salvación. I been studing the atonement more to understand it!

Y sucedió que vi a otros que se adelantaban, y llegaron y se asieron del extremo de la barra de hierro, y avanzaron a través del vapor de tinieblas, asidos a la barra de hierro, hasta que llegaron y participaron de fruto del árbol. I really enjoyed conferencia. I know will all my heart that God calls all his servantes to learn not because they are awesome. Its because they need to learn something. Thats how its works in the mission. We are not called to be district or zone leaders because we are awesome its because we need to learn and change. I know with all my heart that I been called for God to learn from my district and change what I need to change.

Have you guys thought this question. How am I showing love to Father in Heaven? The answer shouldnt be Pray, studying, or church. Im going to share what I think everyone should being doing to show love to Father in Heaven.
Going to the temple and visiting him. Its is home and he lives there. We also should visit his children that are less active and bring them back. do serve to the children of Heavenly Father. Understanding the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Family nights. Keep his commandments and there is a lot of our things. We can show our love! Im so happy to be here. Living the gospel is the greatest way to show love to Heavenly Father and be a example to the world. The world today is different and need to show that we are different and are getting guided by God. I know with all my heart that missionary work with bring happiness to your lifes. Do it, its a blessing. Try it I promise you, you will be happy and the lord needs you guys and only missionaries and are set apart to do it. We are all missionaries in the lords work. He the missionaries around you guys! Give them your friends and family. You will be a big part of the conversion of your friends and family! Dont be a fear to do it. Just think when your friends, family and you will be with Heavenly father in the kingdom. Prepare them, Prepare yourself for this blessings. The members are the biggest help for the missionaries. Show love to Heavely father and help the missionaries! Love you guys and Its a blessing to do this work on the Earth. I want you guys to recieve the same blessings. Love you guys!

My life in Guatemala. The mission is a blessing but its one of the hardest thing i have done in my life but Im so happy to be here. I will never forget this time! The Book of Mormon is true. With all my heart I say this. This book has change my life. Their is many example in the book of great men called for God. We should apply every little thing we learn for the book of Mormon. This is many things we dont know about life and the book of Mormon help us! God speaks to us! He love us and wants to be happy but we need to show our love to him by reading the scriptures everyday! The book of Mormon brings us closer to God! I know that is true because Heavenly Father and Jesus are my friends I depend on them to guide me! If someone is having a bad time in life. I know with all my heart that sharing stories of the book of Mormon will bring happiness and joy to thier lifes. I see that happiness and joy in my life and the people, we are teaching! God. I promise you guys if you want to know Heavenly Father and why Jesus Christ come to the earth read the book of Mormon. I promise that you will recieve a answer to all your questions! I know with all my Heart that Heavenly Father send Jesus to the earth to die for us because Heavenly Father loves us. Jesus died for us and his atonement is a act of love to us! So if they love us so much then what are we going to do this week to show our love to them! :)

Well Im surprised with all that is happening at home in Utah. One years has gone by, me here in Guatemala and A LOT OF THINGS ARE CHANGING IN UTAH. HAHAH Let me tell ya im in shocking hahah. Well going back to Guatemala. I have some news, we had a baptism this week. Im so happy to see anyother daughter of Heavenly Father start her journey back to his present. I know that the lord is happy with her baptism. Today during the district meeting I was teaching about Paciencia. This is one of my favorite Atributos of Christ and I think its one of the hardest to get too. I know everyday in the mission our paciencia is getting tested. I know that the lord wants everyone to learn this atributo of paciencia because it will come in handy in our lifes. Its hard tho haha. Something different I did during the district meeting was test the level of paciencia my district has. They didnt like it haha. So in the district I have my campanion and the sisters. I did my district meeting in English. My English has got bad by the way haha. I love the words of Presidnte Thomas S. Monson when he talks about paciencia "La vida esta llena de dificultades, algunas mas penosas que otras. Parecería que hay una infinidad de pruebas para todos. El problema es que muchas veces esperamos soluciones instantáneas para las dificultades, olvidando que frecuentemente es necesario que pongamos en practica la virtud celestial de la paciencia." I know with all my heart that Jesus Christ lives. Im so happy to be here in Guatemala. I have zone conference tomorrow and IM really to learn and apply it in my live. I love the mision. The mission has changed my life and Im happy with who I am. Im a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. Im proud to me Mormon!
Well I can say that im really happy to been here. My year mark is on Thursday how sad the time is going by to fast but Im really happy to here in Guatemala. This week was a week of pain.

I know that Agosto is going to be a month of mircales because I know it!! haha.
Sometime life isnt easy. I know that Heavenly Father loves us. I can tell you guys with all my heart that Im getting to know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. This year has been one year full of miracles. I have changed a lot because I got to know Heavenly Father. I wanted that change. I still want to charge some for. Someday I will need to apply everything I have been learning and the things im learning right now. I can tell you that everyday we learn something new. Im kinda sad that I only have a year left but theres a lot of things I need to do for Heavenly Father in this year. I know with his help. Everything will be alright. I dont want to leave Guatemala. Im enjoying my mission! I know with all my heart that I have seen miracles in my life and I have done miracles too that I will never forget. A mission is the time to show Heavely Father how much you love him. If we enjoy working for the Lord many blessings come. I can promise you guys at home. If you can enjoy the blessings that Heavenly Father has promised us but doing something for our friends and family. Invite them to come to church. Dont be a fear to share you testimony with any one. Blessings come. I love you guys with all my heart!! This is Elder Vega. Im working on the lords side! Love ya

A week full of blessings. I saw the lords love this week. I can't write what I feel this week because I don't have words to explain it. It was so powerful. In the mission Guatemala city central in the zone El Frutal. We are focusing on baptizing families. We are working really hard on those families of Heavenly Father. We have three families we are teaching and preparing them to make convenios with Heavenly Father. Everyday has gone by and I felt the spirit more and more everyday! All I can say that I love the spirit because I feel my heart changing. Wow I have changed so much in a 11 months on the mission. I give thanks for everyone that made my dream of being a missionary come true. I love you guys. I hope you guys know that nothing bad has happen to me in the mission. Sometimes its great sometimes is hard and upsetting but I know that Im were I need to be. These two years are changing my life forever. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know with all my heart that we are all loved from Heavenly Father and Christ. We need all to learn how to use the atonement in our lifes. My heart has changed. I love the mission. I know someday you guys will get to see the changes in my life. I cant stop telling you guys how much I love Guatemala. Its my second home.! Yesterday was district pday. I have a Hermana that loves to buy. Her name is Hna Lopez. Her companion Hna Mejia say that everytime Hna Lopez goes shopping, Hna Mejia has to buy to because Hna Lopez temps her to buy. Im going to the temple on Tuesday and before we are going Ihop first then the temple.
Well this week has been a realy great week. I know with all my heart that the church is true. This week I learned that Heavenly Father loves to bless us. We had a baptism. Greatest feeling. I really love my mission. Last week we got to meet a 70. Elder Alonso. It was great time. I felt the spirit when Elder Alonso told us. Its your time to share what your feeling. After couple of the missionaries shared wonderful things about the mission. The spirit told me to share my life on the mission and the blessings that I have recieved. I love to share the biggest bless I got during the mision is when my family became members of the Church of Jesus Christ. That the biggest blessing in my life. I love to see the investagores change their lives and follow Christ. I know someday that my family and I will go to the temple. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he loves us. Our faith brings us closer to him. I love the Book of Mormon for those great men that have the faith to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the times of the Book of Mormon. I love the mission. I love everyone of you guys. Keep the the great work and remember to bring others unto Christ.
Hey everyone! How is everyone doing. Im doing great. Its hot here in Guatemala it stopped raining for a week and next week the rain and the roads full of water will be back. The roads get full of water and that water comes up above my knees. haha its fun to be wet all day! This week has been a werid one but its been a blessing. We are going to have a baptism this Saturday. Of a young man called Garbiel Oscal. I love the mission. Can someone do me a favor and sloooooow down the time becuse time is going to fast and I dont want to come to my year mark but the cool thing is that my two year mark of being a member is coming really soon. The day that changed my life! I love it. Sorry its email will be short because I have some others things to do but I love you guys and The lord loves each one of you guys! I have some proof that its rains alot here in Guatemala and that the roads get full of water. Some person took a picture of us walking in the water and my bishop found the picture on facebook and hey guess us that picture. The werid thing was that I didnt know someone took a picture of my companion and I.
Today I have the greatest district meeting and also pratices with traveling asistentes. Today I learned why we are more in the mission Guatemala city central. Today I knew that my works here are going to become blessings to my life. The lord was told my mission President. How can we do more. We need to find the needs of all the investagores in the first five mintures of the first lesson and focus on that need. I dont know why but I feel that one of the greatest things in my life its starting today. I feel the spirit so strong right now. I know that the Lord is blessing all of us but my family is getting one of the bestest blessings really soon. I still dont know what that blessing is but I know I will be here in Guatemala when they get it. I love the mission so much. I love Elder Mendieta my companion. I love the lord because he gave me the changes to learn so much form this district he put trust in me to lead! Yo testifico that we can learn a lot from our missionaries. There is two Elders I really love here on the mission. They are my old zone leaders. Elder Campos from Costa Rica and Elder Roney from Provo Utah. These two missionaries are more then my best friends they are my brothers. They are examples to me. Im sorry for that I'm going to say but I know that the lord loves every single one of us but the best mission of the world is Guatemala Central. Sorry for my little pride. haha. I love you guys. Yo testifico that Im a new person not the same old person I was better the mission. The lord has blessed me and keeps blessing me. Im Elder Vega and I'm a missionary of Jesus Christ.
Sorry for last week. I couldnt send out my message. Guess what I dont have changes this change. I get to stay in Margaritas with my companion but my district has changes. I will getting a new sister the District Margaritas/Petapa. Excited I wont know till tomorrow. Im excited to finish my companions training. This week has been great. We have some great investagores. The mission is working really hard. The people in the city are a little more hard then in the coast. Sometimes I miss the coast but I know the lord put me here for a reason and he has not tooken me out because I still have work to do here in Margaritas. I have learned something really cool about my President. He told me the other day. We are a little more but we can do a little more. That made me think like a member of the church. We are a little more because we have the only true gospel on earth. We can do a little more. Yes we can do more like bring people unto Christ. Is it easy? No its not easy but we feel the power of the Holy Ghost and our friends and family members feel that Spirit. I promise you guys if you left your confort zone. You will feel the power of the Holy Ghost. As Members of the Church of Jesus Christ we need to have a Spiritual expirence every week but as missionaries of the church we need to have one everyday. Its really important of us Missionaries to do the will of the lord. I know with all my heart if you left the confort zone. You will have the spirit of The Lord and the spirit will touch the people you guys help hearts. There is always something we can change. If you guys want to feel the spirit more. Put more time on the scriptures. Do prayers of Faith. Read Preach my Gospel in Chapter 4. It tells about the prayers of faith. The most important thing to feel the spirit is to live El dia de Reposo. Sundays have to be a different day then the others. I promise you guys if you do these things. You will feel the Spirit of the lord.

I love the mission even though sometimes its hard but its pilas the feeling you get when you come to your house and your so tried and all you want is to sleep but you cant because you got other things to do! That the greatest feeling there this. I know that Jesus lives and he is my light and happiness to my days. Heavenly father has gave me a lovely home here in Guatemala. I will never forget this place. I enjoy every second here. I want to say thank you for everyone that helped me get there on the best two years of my life. I will never forget eachone of you guys. Love you with all my heart.

This week was great. It was really hard week. When this kind of weeks come the best thing to have is Paciencia with everything and always have a great pray in your heart asking Heavenly Father for the help! This I learned that Heavenly Father listen to us. This last week could be one of the hardest I had but Im really happy for it. My companion is doing great!! Yesterday was zone pday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guess where we went!! Antigua Guatemala!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really beautiful again!!! Hope is something we all need to have because Heavenly Father has hope on us that everytime we get a calling at church. He wants us to do the very best we can to make fruits come out of our calling. As Missionary we need to have hope in everything. Hope on the people that will listen to us and that they will keep doing the right things to progress there progress to the waters of Baptism. The focus of our mission is to baptize and keep families. We dont only baptize but we also keep them from going into less active members. Hope is the keep word to our faith. Faith and Hope means we have pure love of Christ. We need to be obediente to our callings. Always have hope.
By the way next week I wont be writing till Thursday because the change meeting is on Tuesday and On Wedusday we have a conference with Elder Anderson of the 12.
