2017.02.27 Week 38 - Some super awesome people

It was a great week to be in the full time service of the Lord. Recently I have really been loving the time I have to read the scriptures. Holy cow they are full of some good stuff. I just finished Doctina y Convenios (Doctrine & Covenants). I left our pension everyday thinking that Christ was gonna come again justo hoy (just today). So far no, but I can testify that we are getting real close. PREPARE. 

This week we met some super awesome people. One woman se llama (named) Claudia, and her daughter is Agostina. She lost her husband 4 years ago y de alli (from then on) she stopped believing in God. But she is the best and so is her daughter. I love being able to testify to them that they really will see him again and I hope to be able to help them start believing in God again, cuz he's the best.

I'm also really excited that my Aunt is expecting her first daughter, and considering that I have so much time to study everyday, I took the liberty of finding some biblical names for her to choose from. Here goes: Drusilla, Sibboleth, Zerubbabel, Ur, Apollyon, Shishak, and Jezebel. I don´t really want to pull her towards one in particular but just for some side knowledge, Apollyon means destroyer, and you could call her Polly for short.

2017.02.20 Week 37 - If Rudy can be Mormon, you can too!

This week I went back to Bariloche for a conference. It was the best. I love that place, but it didn't feel the same. I know that I am meant to be in Roca right now. I don't really have time to say anything so here is my testimony.

Yo se que esta iglesia es verdadera. Se que Jesucristo es nuestro salvador y el redentor del mundo. Gracias a el tenemos oportunidades sin fin. Siempre vamos a poder empezar de nuevo. Testifico que JoseSmith restauro la iglesia de Jesucristo de nuevo en este tierra por la ultima vez. Se que Dios tiene un plan perfecto para nosotros, gracias a esto vamos a poder vivir con nuestras famililias por la eternidad. Testifico que el Libro de Mormon es un libro de Dios y que siempre podremos aprender mas sobre Jesucristo cuando leimos. Se que Jesucristo nos enseno las cosas que tenemos que hacer para volver a la presencia de Dios.

Vamos Arriba people!

If Rudy can be Mormon, you can too.

2017.02.06 Week 35 - Now that I have 20 years

Muchas MUCHAS gracias a todos por los coreo mi cumpleaños quedo muchísimo mejor gracias a ustedes! (Many many thanks to all for the birthday mail, my birthday was a lot better thanks to you all!) This week was another great one serving the Lord, claro (of course). My companion and I will still be together this next transfer and we will still be in Roca. Last transfer was pretty rough but now my companion and I are really good friends. This transfer we are ready to baptize around 37,652,186 personas.

The great news is that now that I have 20 years I just walk around in this cloud of maturity. I never say immature things. Never. All I do is preach the gospel and be mature. Pure maturity.

This week we met some really great people. I don´t know why but I just really love the little boys on my mission. I think they remind me of all of the brothers. Ayer (yesterday) we met this group of boys who were playing soccer, there were about 9 of them and they were all 9 and 10 years old. One of them came up to me and said, "So who are you guys anyway? Why do you have that tag?" We are missionaries. "Wow, that's cool, do you have any papers about God or something?" So then I started talking to the rest of the group and they all told me that they were looking for a church to go to. Hasta que (until) one of them told me that just this week he was asking his parents if they could PLEASE buy him a Bible. Obviously the plan is to baptize the whole group. We really gained the confidence when I started showing off all my soccer skillzzzz. Dress, church shoes and all. So I´ll send out the invite to all of their baptisms in a few weeks.

In other news, I really just love my mission. Yesterday I was looking at all the pictures I have taken and almost died. It seems like I was in the MTC 30 years ago, but that I got to the mission 2 days ago. Time is moving real weird. I never want to leave. I have learned so much here and real life seems SUPER scary.

On my mission I have really learned to trust in the Lord and I invite all of you to do the same. Maybe you are just living in good old Draper and the worst thing that has ever happened to you is that your pedicure chipped after one day, but that doesn't mean that God isn't right there to help. He really is our Father and his entire purpose is that we can come home to live with him. Just think, God is putting 100 percent so that we can make it, and so is Christ. That's already 200 percent. If I do my math correctly we literally just have to accept all the work that they have already done. So do it people. God is here to help.


And really thank you mucho for your emails. I laughed a lot reading them. The people in this cyber think that I am crazy.

Here's me at 20. Ya very different claro. (Already very different of course.)
