Some great thing are happening in the Guatemala city central mission, We are preparing a young man called Juan to get baptized on Sunday, Its hot in Escuintla. So I heard that Miki got married and someone can tell her that I said hi! Last Friday I have interview with President Markham and its was so awesome, We were laughing the whole 35 minutes of that interview haha, I learn so much in that 35 mintues with President Markham. He did tell me I need to be ready for anything the Lord calls me to do! I been learning so much this week, I start to read The Book of Enos and my prayers are getting stronger and stronger! I know that im in the true church and that I shouldnt be playing with every dog I see haha I almost got bite three times this week hahaha but I did play with a cat and it bite me hahaha My mission is going to fast hahaha I want to slow down but everytime I try to slow down, Im working more haha well I love you all, Dont forget to remember the scriptures and pray, and work in the missionary work with people that home,

Pday de zona yesterday and it was awesome! We went to Antigua and it was weird because there is people all around the world there! It was pilas and I bought some cool things for me! haha My week has been great, the missionary work is going. The other day for lunch I had cow feet and its has no meat. It was werid but good and yes i did get sick because of that. haha But the other day we went to a part of my area and its a little far and its called Cuytah and it reminded me of home because of the smell of cows. I was happy about that but it was long bus ride. This week I learned that we need to love everyone and show it! Moroni 7 talks about how we can reach this love for the people. If we show love, people will see why do they have so much love. They will want to know what we do. They will be more willing to listen. Keep showing love to everyone. Love you all

Christmas was really pilas, by the way in Guatemala pilas means awesome! On the 24th All the members we visited fed us and I couldnt eat anymore after the second visit, and I ate 8 times! That night my mission president gave all the missionaries to stay out till 12.30 by we had to be with a leader! My companion Elder Govea and I stayed at the bishops house playing games and watching everyone in the street play with fireworks! When midnight hit everyone let the fireworks go! It sounded like Guatemala was in war haha! Plus the bishop gave us more food! On the 25th was our pday and I got to talk to my family!!! MY mom and two of my sisters on baptized that night!! Best christmas present I recieved!!! Christmas was kinda boring just sleeping in the house haha! On the 23th we had a crazy family night with lots of members and investagors!! I know that promises that Heavenly Father made me are coming true! I gave him thanks for all the blessings! I want you guys to know I love you guys and its the time to change and start our the 2015 with goals to bring more of Heavenly Father Childrens back on track! I know that you guys have friends or family members at are not members or less active! Its time to help our the missionaries to bring new people to the truth or bring back people to the truth! Dont be scared to step up and do the will of the Lord! A great example of this is Nephi when he tells his dad Lehi I will go and do what the lord has comanded!! 1 Nephi 3:7 Lets be a little be more like Nephi and step up and do the lord will! Its the TIME to bring childrens of Heavenly Father back, so they can also taste of the fruit of joy like in Lehi dream! 1 Nephi 8:12!

The missionary life is so pilas, We have a baptism this Sunday and her name is Ana Consuelo Lopez and shes a single mom, She wants the best for her kids plus she knows that this is the true church, If you guys can have her in your prayers that would be so pilas! We are learning to work with the members really well! The members think that they can walk faster then me so they always want to do divions with me, and I kill them haha I love working with the members because I make them work! Plus but the time we get to each appointment they are so tried because they cant keep up with me, haha! I love the members, they always want to help with the missionary work and its cool because we are teaching the families and friends of the members! Christmas is almost here and theres no snow here in Guatemala, just sun and heat. The nights are really cold and everyone is getting sick. I have the cold and its pilas to be sick! I love the mission! We are teaching the youth to prepare for a mission and its great when they come out and work with us. I love you all and remember to keep Ana Consuelo Lopez in your prayers!
