Week 2: Chelsea, MA

WOW! Time is going by fast! It sure is fun to be here. I really feel the spirit is starting to work through me more and more every day. It is so so so so great! Me and Elder Molina are really starting to get a feel for each other. So last Monday was so awesome! First P-day...we played soccer like all day...awesome! Then we had the best pizza I have ever had in my life...so so good!

But, Wednesday was like the longest day of my young life. We worked so so hard. We contacted and tracted like all day then we did service at this little clothing shop that sales Columbian clothes for a few hours. We worked dang hard and taught a bunch of lessons. Very, Very good and long day.

Thursday was crazy and probably one of the most difficult and rewarding things I have ever done. It was an awesome day. We had a bunch of lessons all lined up and they all ended up dropping, that is the problem that seems to be most prevalent here is everyone is willing to talk to us and everything but then they get busy and are never home. It is super frustrating, but at least people are willing to talk to us. That is good. Then we had a barbeque at my padres house, haha! (This family has pretty much adopted the missionaries.) The food was so dang good! Gosh they cook dang good food in Mexico, and I seem to have a new love for spicy sauce and spice food! After dinner, this is what was hard and awesome, we went to a ladies house and gave her a blessing. I didn't give the blessing, but the spirit was so profound and special. It was like God was there and mourning with us. This lady has had cancer for a long time and was going to die soon. We read to her what the purpose of life was and where we are going after this life from the scriptures, then gave her a blessing. All she could do was moan, it was so sad that I was tearing up the whole time. Super hard and sacred for me. She was on morphine she was in so much pain. She died the next day.

I love this work so much. I get spiritual confirmation every day that this is where I should be. I am having fun and working hard and prayers are being answered. I love you guys!
