All I can say is I LOVE THE MISSION..... and the days just keep getting better...

So Tuesday my new companion and I, arrived here in our new area... and it is HUGE. It also borders the Ocean! So we didn't know, anyone, or anything, so the first thing we did is go look for members, and we met this amazing family, who just got married and the wife just got baptized even though her husband has been a member for a long time... But that night, he showed us around our area and I am pretty sure we met every single person he knew haha... and it was ALOT... 

The rest of the week, we just spent, learning our area and talking to everyone! So we are in a Branch, and there are also the Zone Leaders that live and go to the same ward with us, and the President of the branch is an awesome man.. well pretty much all the members here are awesome and willing to help us out with references! Including Saturday when we had an activity and we had almost 50 people there! I am so excited to be here in this new area. I love the Dominicans... Only someone that has been here can understand what i mean... they are just Dominicans haha. Christmas is coming up fast and I am super excited to start another week, teaching the truth!

Goodbye Los Mina!

Well the title says it all! Tomorrow I will be leaving Los Mina and be heading The Campo! or for those of you who don't know, campo is country! I will be leaving the big city and heading East! and I will be getting a new comp! A gringo!! Elder Gililand! We will be opening up an old area and im so excited! I have had an amazing time here in los Mina, and I will miss so many people here! But, I know there are so many more people waiting for me in other places! 

I cant believe its december! Christmas and the new year are coming fast! and here that just means more reasons to have fiestas and drink! haha   But it also means that people want to come unto Christ and use his atonement and change their lives! I am so extremely grateful for my Savior, and everything he has done for me. The atonement is real, and through our faith and repentence, we are able to progress in our way towards him!!   I love you all so very much! Have a great week!



Happy Birthday! 11-28-16

First of all I have to give a big shout out to the man himself! MI PAPA! It is his birthday today, I wont tell you all how old he is, lets just say he's getting real old! haha


So we had a great week this week! Tuesday, like I mentioned last week, we had the amazing opportunity to attend the Temple as a mission! I walked in, and you guys wouldn't believe the first person I saw! ELDER CHADWICK! Wow what an amazing experience that was! It was the first time I had seen him in the Mission! We had a lot of catching up to do and it was so fun!  It was so great to be able to enter into the Lords House and feel of his wonderful spirit! 

Then  Thursday was obviously Thanksgiving! Here in the DR, they don't celebrate thanksgiving, but that didn't matter! As a zone, we got together and all brought food to share! It definitely wasn't the same as home but it was as good as it gets haha! 


Here in Los Mina, the work is picking up! We have been working hard with the members to get an activity set up, so that the members can bring their friends and we can watch the new Christmas videos from the church! We have organized it for Friday so we will see how it goes! 

Now that is the Christmas season, things in missionary work start to pick up. Not only here in the DR but all over the World! Don't be afraid to share your testimony about the real meaning of Christmas, and invite your friends to hear of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ!!
