Me with Familia Rosario... They were the family I was with when I received the call from dad about his heart... 4 of them are completely reactivated and Hermana Luisa and her husband Luis will get baptized next transfer!
And me with Jorge and Pepin from the ward
Saying goodbye to Tono was rough... But he is happy and one of THE MOST FAITHFUL MEMBER OF CRISTO REY!
With Hermana Teresa... She promised me she would be reactivated in the next year...
Me with all the kids at our Noche De Hogar!
And Me with Familia Cruz and Frankairo my other baptism! While I have been there Hermana Cruz, Milagros, Vianessa, Betico and Beatriz have all been completely reactivated and Vianessa's husband is being baptized next transfer... They are working on their papers to be married!!!! Also we have 3 other baptisms happening next transfer in Cristo Rey that I will return for...A lot... Alot of Goodbyes... We have 3 people ready to be baptized but they shut down Cristo Rey B so Elder Olalere has ALOT of work now... As it was we couldn´t pass by everyone..All the Baby Boom missionaries from the age change are leaving so they have to shut alot of areas... We have 26 leaving and only 8 coming in... I will return for the Baptisms this next transfer!!
Esperanza - New area, new companion, new responsibilities
Wow... I am overwhelmed right now honestly... All this at once has been crazy.. From Junior Companion to a bunch of responsibilities at once... So.... I am in more than just a new area... I have been called to be Senior Companion and District Leader.... I don´t know what the Lord is thinking but I am going to need your prayers. GOOD NEWS IS MY COMP IS AWESOME! He has 3 months in the field... My companion's name is Elder Galleguillos ! My area is a campo (the country)..... I have huge mountains in my backyard and the house never has running water and hardly electricity... MY AREA IS HUMOUNGUS.... It is INSANE!!! lol
Me and my new comp Elder Galleguillos...I am his ¨Step-Dad¨ in mission Terms... his first companion after his trainer!
Dad's surgery on Tuesday...WHY ARE YOU EVEN WORRIED? lol He´s going to be perfect LOL Don´t stress over that ! The Lord will provide as he always has and always will as long as we are obedient and Faithful in Keeping his Commandments. Please rest assured that your missionary has NO WORRIES! ALSO NO ELECTRICITY hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha :D and don't worry all the stoves we have run on Gas... And there are parts of our area where we actually HAVE to ride a motorcycle... President said so hahahahaha This is so different from home... This area is as hot as Florida... But imagine living in a house in Florida without AC at night... needless to say I packed away Grandmas blanket for a little while......... lol
