SAN JUAN PUERTO RICO MISSION
Just finished my first transfer! I’ve now been out for 3 months! I am staying in Juncos with my companion Elder Canto. My goal is to learn something from every companion - and from him I am learning to stop and smell the flowers. Because he stops and literally smells EVERY FLOWER for a while. Haha!! He is nice though. And great news is my foot is back to 100%. No pain and normal shoes!!
We found a new investigator! His name is Ismael. He is a catholic minister but he believes the church is corrupt. He really understood the Restoration and he believes the Book of Mormon is true. He has a problem with being baptized again but he said he will ask our Heavenly Father for guidance.
Mosiah 28:3 is what helps find confidence in the work. I can't wait until I can speak with people and help them receive this gift through the Holy Spirit. I love the Book of Mormon and how it is the key to conversion. I've noticed in our investigators that if they read and pray about the Book of Mormon, they understand and progress toward baptism much faster!
I am feeling more and more the blessings from serving a mission. It has been so cool to see the people hear about the Restoration. They light up because it makes so much sense. Its like a puzzle with no missing pieces. The fact that I can help the people of Puerto Rico receive the biggest gift on the planet is awesome. Honestly, this life is preparing us for the next life. If you want to have joy and eternal life with your family, follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ!! That’s what leads to real happiness and nothing else matters. I mean Dallas Cowboys are fun to watch - but that does nothing for me or for anyone to receive Exaltation! haha! I cant wait till i can speak with them and help them receive this gift through the Holy Spirit!
I love and miss you so so so much x INFINITY! It will be such an awesome day when I can see you again!

P.S. Also, I heard Dr. Dre came out with an awesome Album! If you could please listen to it for me and let me know how it is that would be great! Still a ‘G’
