My last week. I dont know how I feel about that. I know that Im ready to work in the Lords work at home. The misión has taught me everything about Jesús Christ. The Atonement has changed me and will keep changing. My misión has been the best. I love Guatemala City Central Mission because here I learned who is my Savior and Im his friend. To Finish my misión we have a wedding this Saturday and the baptism of Marvin and Carla on Sunday. I think this is the best way to finish.
My work here in Guatemala is almost dude but Im enjoying the last days here. Im excited to come home and my bishop told me at my homecoming is on the 14th hope to see you guys there. I dont know the address of the Church.
Im so happy to know that my Testimony has grown so much in these two years. Im really love the mission and I will miss being a full time missionary but the good thing I will keep being a missionary. I love you all and I will see you guys next week.
This week has been really great. We are preparing a wedding for next week and a family baptism. Yesterday I got to go see my área las Margaritas. I got to see members and my converts from there. I have learn that they are doing super well and that they were happy to see me. It brought good memories from Margaritas. I love the misión. On Sunday a member came up to me and told me. 'another week down, Elder Vega remember not much has changed at home but you will see the change in you because the only thing that has changed is you'. I can tell that these changes I had made has been the blessing of my life and Im happy that next week the 27th will be 3 years since I got baptized and 28th will be 3 years since I became a member of the true church! enjoy the pictures.

We had interviews with President but my companion had to go to the capital something going on with his visa and we missed the interviews but thats ok. This week was really fun. The Ward is working on a plan. A new way to work with the Converts and less active and Investagores. So we have been helping the Ward start going on the plan to read the book of Mormon with the Converts, Less actives, and Investagores. Thats getting us excited. We also found a family of 7. There how is huge because 35 people live in that house. We have not got the chances to speak to all of 35 just 7 of them. The Work here is growing. Today in the district meeting we spoke about the Faith.
How is your faith? What are you doing to grow your Faith? How are you acting upon your Faith?
Three single question that we need to answer and if we are not doing it well repent and act on our faith. We cant see miracles unless we are acting on our faith.
There was been some changes in the zone. My first son in the misión is my zone leader now!! That makes me happy to see Elder Trochez again!! This week are going to have another baptism of a part family member family!! ITs reallyl cool to finish the family. We also are preparing a family to get baptism. She left to bring her paper so we can marry them in the next couple of weeks. I will get to see another wedding before a finish the misión!!! The time flys by to fast but Im excited for tomorrow we have interview with President. That gets me pumped to Hear what President Markham has for us!! Love ya guys!!
This week has been so fun!!! Time is going by to fast!!!! It needs to slow down a Little!!!
This week in the promisión. We have found a lot of new childrens of Heavenly Father to teach!!! Elder Bados and I have been feeling the spirit really strong these last couple of days!! That a feeling!! He is a great companion!!!
The Atonement of Jesús Christ has changed my life. I know that the Atonement is real and it Works will all of us. When we do a change of heart, we feel closer to Heavenly Father thats because of Jesús Christ. Jesús is my Hero. Each day goes by to fast and sometimes I want it to slow down but really the days go by because I have learned to apply the Atonement in my life everyday. In Alma 7:11 say that Jesús Christ will take away our pains. Sometimes I feel sad of choice of others and how the world is but I remember who I am and who has saved me from the bad things then my pain goes way!! Im truely graceful of Jesús Christ. Look never in my life thought I would be a missionary. Look where Im at. Guatemala serving a misión and feeling the love of God. My life has changed because of the Atonement. If life is hard and things are not going how we want it to go. get closer to Heavenly Father and life will be get better!!!
Love you guys!!
Antigua as a pday of zone yesterday.
Yesterday we went to Antigua and I got to see some people and say goodbye. It was really cool to see Antigua again.
Miracles of the week. On sunday a less active family came to church and the mom came up to us and told us "Elderes I need you guys to baptize my daugther soon". So Rosalyn is getting baptized on the 26th. Same day a other less active family came to church but this family has two sons and the older son records are lost. So we need to baptized him again on the 26th. Same cool miracles and I can tell that the Lord is sending his angels down to our área and preparing people to come unto him!! Im a Little worried about something but I know with pray that will help me but I love promisión is a very blessed área!!! I have some pictures of Antigua for you guys.. Love you all!!

This week had been really awesome. We are teaching a member less-active and her daughters Her name is Maricela and she a cool mom. We were preparing her daugther to get baptized. At first was a Little hard. One night we get a call from President Markham asking us something about them. I dont remember but He told us, he would come to visit them with us. Friday came and we went to pick him up at the stake center in Villa Nueva and we found him eating food. He got us some food too!! When we got to the house of Maricela. She was there and two of her daugthers Lindsey and Emily. I dont know how to explain that visit but it was the most spiritual visit we had. Maricela knew the importantces of getting her daugthers baptized!! So we finished at night and baptism date set!! The next day was the interviews and she couldnt make it!! I was starting to be upset. Sunday morning we had the interviews and after church. We baptized them. Yesterday we went to visit them and they were really happy and Maricela is happier with all her problems but she is one happy mom!!! That was my week and I love it!!!
Another week in Solola!!! Tomorrow we have interviews with President!! Im really excited for it!!!! Yesterday we had a great pday My companion Elder Daybell and I with the Elders from Panajchel went shopping. I bought gifts for my family. Hopefully my sisters and mom like their gifts!! I bought myself the coolest pants. These pants are made in Santiago Atitlan!!! So around the lake Atitlan the dressing of men and women are way different. I really like the pants from Santiago Atitlan and I bought them!!! I thought it was cool story!! Going back to the missionary work in solola!! Its going really well.

Crazy week!! A lot of work was done!! Three days in a row of just division!! Great time to work with all the Elderes of the zone and my leaders!!! Something really awesome a learned was the importance of the Book of Mormon!!! Anyone that is investaging the church needs to know if this book is true!!! Main Goal is that people need to know the Book of Mormon is true!! I invite you guys to read and give a book of Mormon away this week but be clear on how you explain the book!! The most importante thing is dont have fear when you do it!! Your helping blessing someone else live and someday they will give thanks for your sharing the gosple!! Love ya guys

Go back to the spiritual part of the week!! This week was pretty good and bad but I did learn something. So it does not matter how bad a day go or what. We can still change someone to come unto christ. On Sunday during our 3 branch meeting. I was thinking a lot of the the hearts Elder Daybell and I have touched. Some of these children of Heavenly Father did the change and follow the spirit. We had a really cool lesson yesterday. We vistied a miember that his wife not a member. He need to do some changes before anything. I know that Heavenly Father puts us in the path of who needs. We did not know why we had to go visit him but we did and know we had set some goals for him. Its awesome to be a missionaries!! I love it!! I love my area even that its full of huge hills haha but I really love it!!!
