Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men; For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say. --D & C 100:5-6

Sooo what a GREAT WEEK!! Once again!! I feel like I’m writing these letters everyday the weeks are going wayy too fast!! Time needs to slow down!! 

Well this week was awesome because we got to have a conference with Elder Bowen the area president of the Philippines right now and it was soo cool!! Most of his talk was about becoming exactly obedient missionaries and how we can start to see miracles in this mission!! But how he taught it first he taught about what the rules were and how we can better follow them.. then he taught like a doctrine part.. which was about the oath and covenant of the priesthood the abrahamic covenant and about our baptismal covenant! I’m so sorry I can’t explain everything he talked about in this little email, but basically what he taught about is where we truly come from and how when we know who we really are, we change how we act! Then he taught about the plan of salvation and how GOD is omniscient! And he knows everything that we can become in this life and the next, and he wants us to do all we can to get all of those blessings but if we don’t do everything we are supposed to in this life... we won’t get those promised blessings!! It was a huge eye opener for me and a lot of the guys out here in our mission!! Excited to see what kind of things will start happening out here!! 

OTHER THAN THAT!! We had a good week teaching some investigators and less actives!! I LOVE THIS ONE GUY OUT HERE! He’s a inactive! But the weird part is he has a son on a mission hahaha well he promised he would come to church when his son gets home, but we FINALLY GOT HIM TO COME TO CHURCH!! Now he’s come 3 times! He is still struggling with the word of wisdom but he’s working on sacrificing that to be able to keep the commandments!! Soo add brother Bernardo to your prayers to help him! 
THEN we have sister Rosel Bolanos she is a investigator who is soo cool she comes to church every week and she wants to be baptized soo bad but her husband wont let her! Well last Saturday we taught her and she asked us if we could fast for her husband so we did last Sunday and we’ll see what happens with her husband, but I would love to have you guys join in prayers for sister Rosel’s husband to soften his heart!! THANK YOU!! 
Also just a lil update on ROMAR JAY! The kid thats gonna get baptized next week! He’s doing great as always!! I think sister Monellia is more excited for the baptism then her son is hahaha but they’re both excited! Sister Monellia is super excited for February to be baptized! 

So cool story!! Last week a couple out here meet a family by talking to them just while walking around and they set a time that missionaries could teach them and after 2 lessons they came to church and are really searching for the truth!! So never be afraid to talk to people about the gospel! BE A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD!  We have such a great opportunity this December to show our faith thru our works and be a light to other people!! I KNOW THAT WE CAN ALL BE A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD!! And people will want to come unto that light!! 

"preach the gospel at all times...if necessary use words”  



My light is but a little one,
My light of faith and prayer;
But lo! it glows like God's great sun,
For it was lighted there.
Shine on, shine on, shine on bright and clear;
Shine on, shine on now the day is here.

I may not hide my little light;
The lord has told me so.
'Tis given me to keep in sight,
That all may see it glow.
Shine on, shine on, shine on bright and clear;
Shine on, shine on now the day is here.
