For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
ISAIAH 55:12

Week 52

We found a new investigator this week that we are so excited to teach! We found him when we were visiting the members and we started with all the families that we did not recognize the names off the ward list and this one we visited wasn't a member but had just moved in and he wants to be baptized! I know that God guided us to find that man it was such a miracle! I am so grateful to be serving with Hermana Vergara! I love her! I know that our companions that we serve with are inspired of God. It has been a hard week and a spiritual one! I know that we will face opposition when we follow Jesus Christ but we will feel God and His spirit with us as we are faithful. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me so happy every day! I am grateful to have this opportunity to serve as a full time missionary! I have learned that we really are the happiest when we are serving others and when we forget about ourselves!

Johnny and Humberto were both baptized on saturday and Humberto told us after that he felt his heart pounding so much of the spirit of God! We were so happy they were both confirmed on sunday during our ward conference and humberto has already been ordained a priest and has a temple recommend and we are planning on going this saturday with him! and Johnny will get his this week also! Johnny wants to serve a mission and we are so excited for him! The members here are great and are helping us a lot! Especially Bishop Eckert he is great! Right now we are finding as always and we have been having lessons with the members this week and have been teaching the restoration so we are hoping to see fruits from this but as of now we are continuing on! Hermana Vergara is great we have been having a lot of ups and downs and spiritual experiences and I love her! I have been telling people I am from mexico and some of them believe me! hahaha I tell them the colonies which is where there are white people. Being a missionary is so fun! and hard too but so fun! I have seen God's spirit change people this week! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's kingdom on earth.

Hermana Vergara is great and so funny every day is a new funny story of joy and heart break. I love being a missionary! Our water went out this morning and my whole body is so sore but i love it i need to work out a lot harder now that i am no longer on bikes i decided. I love the members here and we are becoming good friends. 
 I love the scriptures and I know that God talks to us through his words. 
For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace: 
the mountains and the hills shall break before you into singing 
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 
Isaiah 55:12 
There are lots of anti people here and each time we find them is when i feel the holy ghost testifying so powerfully of truth. 
Yesterday there was such a crazy lady but God gave me quiet and happy peace even while she was attacking us. 
God is always with us. I know that.

Week 49

After we emailed last week we got a phone call that we needed to move out by the next morning and we didn't know why but we only had a one hour left of p day to pack and we had lessons all night starting at 6 so we ran around and packed so fast and we left the next morning and it wasn't until then when we found out why and we were moving to another house in syracuse because we are going to be covering the spanish branch in syracuse now in addition to our ward in Clearfield. We are so excited!!! This is the first time we have covered more than one branch or that i have heard of anyone doing that in the spanish program so it has been very crazy. our area is huge and we have been so busy! We are pink washing the syracuse branch so now is our second pink wash in a row so there is lots to do! and the sisters that I have covered have completely changed also so i am sad because i loved them and the people they were teaching but now i am excited to meet all the new ones! that is how it goes! We have two solid investigators of pure gold that will be baptized next week and they make me so happy! They are reading the book of mormon every day and praying. I love them both but we are doing so much finding especially in the new area because there were no investigators the elders were teaching! The Lord has blessed us so much here in Clearfield and now we just need to start again in syracuse!
