So we have a problem... I come home in less than a year...

Surprise lunch at Hermana Charo´s house! The ¨Dying¨ missionaries who served in Esperanza Were there too!...

The reality of time left and Visa

So we have a problem... I come home in less than a year...Actually as of tomorrow I will officially be illegal in the country... my Visa Expires tomorrow...AWKWARD!!! I AM PULLING A DAD! I have like a 3 month period to extend it so the office is taking care of it... And no I come home around November 17th.......My week was awesome. We had several Spiritual experiences and have so much work we can´t stop to study in the Afternoon. The time is going by too fast. I don´t want to come home. I am praying it will slow down...

P-Day at Kelvis house! They invited us over to eat!!!!!!! I was so stoked! We had breakfast with them! (To be honest it was our first member meal in about a week and a half) They are by far our favorite ward family. They keep us fed even though they don´t have much. Charo his wife is the seminary teacher and Kelvin is now the Young Men´s President!! It was a good P-Day today!

¨Ask and ye shall receive, Knock and it shall be opened unto you¨

So I had several experiences this week but the one that I can share that isn't too sacred is what happened in Mariany´s house. We were invited over for a Family Home Evening and at first Mariany told me the Elders couldn't have the message because they talk WAY to much and so I said OK... But the sisters told us we HAD to take the message. I bowed my head in prayer and received the revelation as to what I was to talk about. We sat down with 3 future missionaries and I taught them the Two things every missionary needs in order to be a truly successful Missionary. We sat and talked with them as if they were entering the mission the next day. Tears filled everyone´s eyes and the minute I began speaking Jose Miguel said ¨ I KNEW we were going to talk on this I JUST FELT IT!¨ I smiled and continued speaking. All the Missionaries testified and we all felt so strongly that we helped change the lives of these three youth..: Afterwards the mom of Mariany who is inactive told me and a quote¨Elder Hefner I never knew you could speak like that... Normally you are always joking around but seriously now I know why you were called to be the Leader over these missionaries... Thank you I haven´t felt this way in awhile.¨ I honestly give thanks to my father in heaven because he answers every prayer. ¨Ask and ye shall receive, Knock and it shall be opened unto you¨

Words of encouragement

While I was in our Zone Council I conveyed my distress about a few things that were passing in my area and The Hermana Leader, who happens to be a great friend of mine(We are from the same group in the CCM) Wrote me a note of Encouragement with some scriptures attached and this is what they say... Isaias 41:9-10;13 
 9 Porque te tomé de los confines de la tierra, y de tierras lejanas te llamé y te dije: Mi siervo eres tú; te escogí y no te deseché.
 10 No temas, porque yo estoy contigo; no desmayes, porque yo soy tu Dios que te fortalezco; siempre te ayudaré; siempre te sustentaré con la diestra de mi justicia.

 13 Porque yo, Jehová, soy tu Dios, quien te sostiene de la mano derecha y te dice: No temas, yo te ayudaré.

Isaiah 41: 9-10, 13
 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
 10 ¶Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
 IT´S A KOLA REAL CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
