April 29, 2014

Well this week was miracle FILLEEEDDDD!

Questions.....that aren't really even questions....

1.  We would like to go to the Brough's homecoming if they have one.  If we could get the address to their ward and when it will be when that becomes available. I don't know if they are going to have one haha. Knowing them the might not. But I will keep you updated on it. They don't even have a house in Utah haha so I don't know what they will do.

2.  Comp/investigator/zone updates. 
We are doing well here in the area. My comp is awesome. The investigators are there! We just need to get them in the water. We had 3 for this weekend. Kenny, Jonatan and Hansel. They are sons of a less active lady that are sooooo stoked for their baptism. Then we have Sofia the one I was talking about the other day. Her little brother Gerardo. Then we have The S family taht is gettin it done. Cristofer and Janet a little family that are getting it done!! We're gonna do it this month in may!

4.  Any news from Tejar at all? The sisters are super pilas. The last I heard of Luis was that he just wasn't progressing at all. His kids wanted to but it was just hard without him doing it. The kids I guess almost got baptized. But who knows! God knows what he wants from his children!

This week we had some straight miracles happen! Super blessed this week. 

A Guy named Francisco, that we hadn't had contact with for a long time got to church last Sunday and just said, I haven't smoked for a while and I want to be baptized!!!!! And we were like, "LET'S GET IT DONE!!!!!!" So the whole week we were trying soooo hard to look for him and get him taught the last little things that we needed to teach him before his baptism. We couldn't find him at all! Then on friday we found him at like 8:57 in his house finally. We taught him what he needed to know and RANNNNNN home like 2 miles up straight hills to get in before 9 30. It was crazy and a huge miracle. Saturday, the day of his interview, we couldn't find him hahahaah. We finally found him in his house and talked to him and he said, " let's wait until toimorrow!" and I said nooooooo way man. We're getting it done tonight. Called the ward mission leader and he came to pick us up. As he was coming, Francisco's wife showed up! She is just the most pleasent lady in the world haha NOT!! and then we had to leave. We just got up and were like "lady we're taking your husband with us!!!!" and we bounced. It was awesome. He passed his interview and got baptized that same night!!! HUGE HUGE HUGE MIRACLE!!!! I'm just so grateful with my Heavenly Father for that miracle. We worked so hard this month and it just didn't go too well. But we kept the faith and our Father blessed us big time.

The zone is doing good. We are working hard and seeing some results. I feel like this month in May is going to be HUGE!! Stoked for it. It's crazy how fast time is going by. Almost half the change is almost over and I feel like it just started. I wanna stop the train and get off and get on again at the start but that's just not how it works haha. I love it here. Love the people sooooo much. They are just so funny. I'm so glad that The Lord has blessed me with this calling to be in this country serving his children and working my butt off. I will come back skin and bones skinny haha. I just hope I go to the coast again hahaha. 

I LOVE YOU ALL!!! Thanks for all the support and all that you do for me!

In the next package that you guys mandarme, I need some ties. Haha I just like to give a lot of them away and now I only have my really special ones and need some new good ones!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!

sweet wallet

1.  Where did Finch end up? Elder Finch is about 20 minutes away from my in Boca del Monte as Assistant. He's killin it! I still talk to him like every day haha it's great.
3.  Tell us how you and Suarez are doing with your investigators. We are working hard with 3 investigators for this weekend named Francisco L, Geovanny C, and Sofia M KILLLLAAAAAA We have to baptize this weekend because we just have to baptize this month haha.
4.  Anyone in Prados heard of a guy from Mariscal named Marvin Gomez? No I don't think so. But I will get my ask on baby!!!!!

Well It was a little tough this week because of the Semana Santa haha. No one was in the house. We found a ton of new investigators but it wsa hard because all of our investigators were in the beach getting their party on. We worked through it though and had a good week. 

We haven't baptized this month. Not acceptable haha. We hav ethree good possibilities for this weekend and I know that we will get it done.

It is weird to go from Gringo to latin again haha. I find myself talking to him in English all the time hahaha. Its' way funny. He seriously is soooo great. It is just different with a white boy. Count your blessings baby.

Sooooo good to see the pictures of Adam and Gus at church. I love Adam. Always have. He's such a great guy and it's so great that he is getting back into the path. Great uncle.

We just worked hard this week. It's starting to get really really hot haha. I love the heat. It just turns me into straight skin and bones! I'm getting super skinny hahaha. I hope that my next area is on the coast. I miss the people there haha.

There's really not much to write. I had a good week and I'm happy as ever. So thankful for all that The Lord has given me. The Scriptures have helped me so much. I've grown soo much in every which way. I love the people. I love the country. I love my family and friends. I love my God. Have a great week!!!!!

Hi Everyone.....

Well here we go with the craziness.... 

1. Any chance you get to visit Antigua this week?  No we're not going up. I feel like it would be supppppeeerrrrr sweet. But we won't go down there at alll. I don't think that president would like that very much haha
3.  Any word on changes? Well I'm emailing right now. Just about 1 hour after getting to the area with my new companion!! I'll let you know!!
4.  How is your zone doing? Yeah man!!! Doing super good out here. We are a little slow with the craziness of March just beacuse we baptized literally everyone that we had ready in the last month. But we're actually doing really well right now.  
5. Any chance to visit the folks in the Carmen? Well I went last week. Best divisions of my life!!! I'll talk more about that a little later.

Well I'm a double grandpa!!! Both of my kids, Elder Hintze and Elder Hernandez, are training!!!!! Super proud of them. I'll hit you up with a picture of my kids and my grandchildren next week!!! So stoked for them!!!

Well this one you're going to like.....especially dad....... We're using Skype for mother's day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well that's going to be so awesome. We don't know much about it but we will let you know when we know haha. but we need you to make an account so that we can talke!!!! WHOOO.

It was seriously sooooo sick to be here with Elder Finch. I love that guy haha he's such a great missionary and we worked soooooo hard and had a ton of success. My new companion is named Elder Suarez! He's from Honduras! He's super sweet. We will get along great and have a great change. I knew the whole time that he was going to be my companion. haha I just felt it all along. Didn't really know him but I knew it! Super sweet guy. We're going to have a lot of fun.

Elder Sorenson is a new zone leader!!!!!! No one saw that coming and we are all soooooooo stoked for him. He is going to do a great job. And he's in Antigua which is sick. Killer. That's pretty much it. Last night we left with the new Elders that were coming to the mission their first day and we killed them. It was so great. I left with a kid that was literally the CLONE of Colin. SOOOOOOOO awesome. hahahahah I just was laughing the whole time. Same face, nose and smile. So funny.

I went to El Carmen this week!!!!!! The best day ever. I just loved to be there and see how hard I worked there. I worked my butt off haha. And now I got to see the fruits of my work. So much of what I was working with went through after I left. They remembered me and it was jsut so nice to know that I had done something there. It was frustrating there sometimes because everything just fell through al the time but we just worked our butts off. But it was soooo good to be down there. So great. Well I have to go now. I love you all. Hope you have a good week!!!!! LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUUU

Hi everyone.....

This week was nice. Suavesito.....

Questions: (warning: I'm gonna say the H word:Home)
1.  Update on your investigators. 

We really have hardly anyone hahaha. There is a lady named Liseth and her daughter named Paola and a kid named Javier(reminds me a lot of Gabe) That's about it. We threw it down in March.

2.  Update on your companions and when changes are. 

We have changes on the 16. Elder Finch is out and I am going to get a latin. Saber who it is but it's nice to have the hook ups in the office haha. Elder Carcamo left on Wednesday. Weird without him haha.

3.  Did you watch conference in English or Spanish? 

I watched it in English. It doesn't even compare in Spanish. It was soooooo awesome.

4.  When is your release date, to the best of your knowledge?  

Yeah I hve to go to Tikal. My last change day is the 1st of october. It will be conference weekend I think. 

5.  Are any of your people from Sipacate or Carmen temple-ready? 

Yeah there are actually a couple. Aidee Cabrera is doing great and that will go down within a couple months. I would like to go with her and her family.

Well Conference was AWESOME!! I loved Pte Uchtdorf's talk about gratitude. I am really not the most grateful person. Also Elder Bednar threw it down!!! The testimony of Elder Holland!!!!! CHILLSSSS!!! and Your boy Pte Packer and his testimony. Loved it. So much.

We had a good week. Worked hard as usual. It's nice to be with just Elder Finch. Now we just work at our own pace and it's so nice. I LOVE IT!!! Changes are going to be weird. Not stoked haha. 

We went to Lake Amatitlan this week for zone p day. That was sick. a lot of cool stuff to do there. I don't have much time that's why I'm going hard hahaa.

We are doing well. I love Elder Finch and we are doing well together. He won't be going too far because the office is just right around the corner hahaha. We don't know yet where he's going but I know he's gonna be the assistant.

CRAAAAAY That Nicolle finishes the mission tomorrow haha. I can't even fathom that. Weird that it is so close but it seems so far. I hardly focus on it and try to throw it out of my mind. But it's getting to that time and it's so weird. I love the mission so much. I've grown so much in every aspect of my life. I'm just a better person. I just understand the importance of good hard work and will never let it go. I love my Savior and My Heavenly Father. I know that Gabe is up there watching over us. It is weird for me to think about that he isn't there with you guys. I feel like I'm gonna get home and he' going to be there. I think that's why I don't want to go home. I'm just really scared of that. I miss him but The Lord is doing exactly what Elder Bednar talked about, carrying my burdens. They are still there, I just don't feel them because of my Savior. I love you all. Thank you for everything. Have a great week!!!!!!!
