Well this Thursday we are having a HUGE meeting with the North Mission I have been practicing with a choir to sing these past two weeks and every practice I feel like I am at regional choir’s awesome. I love singing alto jeje. 

So I have been thinking about talents a lot this week and about how every single one of us have so many different talents that we don’t even realize are talents. So I want to share some of the ones I was thinking with you. 

Those people that just have it in their minds to serve everyone (my dad)

Noticing the small things about people and in situations that is a huge talent! 
Being Hard working
Talking to people when they are sad.

I just want all of you to see yourselves as Jesus sees you. To him you don’t have mistakes you have chances to be better. To Him you aren’t ugly you are one of the prettiest smartest people he knows. He knows you and loves you so much. If you have doubts. James 1:5 says just ask him. He will tell you HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE. 

I have seen so many people that I thought wow they will never get baptized. Or wow they are not EVER going to change... But that is not my place it is Gods the people I thought about like that ended up being my GREATEST converts God changes lives ask him for answers ask him for help he loves you!! 

Well this week I had the change to go on divisions with Combs so I headed back to my old area!! It was AWESOME I got to see everyone and say hello man I love them and miss that area!! I feel so blessed.

So today when we were coming to Masaya we went through a roundabout and there was a horse and buggy in front of a roundabout... oh man it was crazy. 

Well this week the Chikungunya struck again. But don’t worry I HAVE COME BACK TO LIFE jaja . God strengthens me through EVERYTHING it doesn’t matter what it is! 

I want you to all send me a question something you want to know about me or my mission and I will happily answer it for you!! I hope all is well with everyone!! LOVE YA xoxox
Rojer and his mission call!  I helped "reactivate" him. 

I sure love this kid!

March 9, 2015 (Nindiri Nicaragua)

Hermano Clodomiro was baptized this week!
That’s right everyone!! He got baptized!!! Finally he got baptized and now he is teaching a bunch of kids that live around his house! It’s crazy he is so awesome!!! 

So I was talking to our branch president this week and he said he was in a conference the other day and a lady asked him where his missionaries in his branch were from(talking about the four of us in Nindiri we are all from the USA) and the lady said you have three Gringas and a Guatemalan right?? And president said uhhhh no just three gringas and she said no that girl is from Guatemala......whaaaaaaaaaat that’s crazy jajajaja 
This week was definitely interesting we taught some lessons that were really good and met some positive people we just have to teach them that Satan is going to play with their minds......I hate when he does that. 
Well this week I had choir practice for a big huge meeting we are going to have with the North Mission and the South mission it is going to be CRAZY 

I am sorry I didn’t write much this week I love you all!!!! 

My current House I live in.

March 2, 2015 (Nindiri Nicaragua)

My New Zone after prepday softball.
So this week Clodomiro was supposed to get baptized but for crazy reasons he didn’t. I cried... it was awful but pray for him so that he can get baptized this week that is coming!! HE IS SOOOO READY. 

This morning as a Zone we played baseball it was crazy my zone is actually very awesome!! My zone leaders and from Guatemala and The Dominican Republic. It’s fun! My District leader is from Tonga...Elder Naupoto.. he is awesome.. 

This week so many things happened we have an investigator that we are teaching that is blind... I have been so ungrateful of sight my whole life I know I don’t have the best sight but heck I can still see. We asked him what is greatest joy was in life and he said the fact that I can still kind of remember when things look like and he can imagine what things look like.... It just amazes me how much God has blessed me it reminds me of my first area Granada when we had a member that only had one leg and she lived about six miles away from the church but that didn’t matter because EVERY Sunday there she was early so she could take the sacrament... This mission has made me so aware of all the things I do have. I was so selfish before my mission. All of you that have friends that aren’t members of the church invite them. Tell the missionaries because it doesn’t matter what problems we have the gospel has the answer. Just remember what James 1[5 says if you have doubts ASK GOD. if you are sad ASK GOD don’t complain about it. I did before and I shouldn’t have. 

This week I realized that if you want a good reason to do what’s right just think. We don’t have to suffer for our sins we can repent for them that is much easier. I know that the atonement is real. It is the only thing that will permit that we get to live with our families FOR THE ETERNITY. I know it’s true!! You guys are the best tools your friends and family that aren’t members have to receive this happiness God put us in their lives on purpose he doesn’t make mistakes. I love you all I KNOW you all and I know you all know that this is true. Share it. It should be like when your favorite team wins the game. SHARE IT. It should be like when someone gets engaged or has baby.. the happiness God has for us is way bigger and WAY happier than any of that but for some reason it is so much harder to share. Don’t be afraid fear comes from the other team. Be bold. I know you can. 

I love you all and miss you all so much. I have come so far and I don’t want to go back to the old me. Life was meant to go on not to go back. I hope you guys wake up every day and realize how special God made you. He made you unique HE LOVES YOU. Like my mom always said let it slide get up and get it done!! 

I LOVE YOU ALL!!! Talk to you next week!!
