Sounds like things have taken a turn for the better!!

What a freaking week!

I had to push Elder Guerrero a ton this week, but because of that we have 9 new investigators!  It was tough but we worked hard and we are starting to roll the boulder down the hill here!! 

If everything goes right there will be a lot of white for my birthday!

I never thought that this would happen, but I am seriously starting to forget English!!!!  It is so funny when someone in my district asks me questions and I just say “What?”

We had a Family Home Evening on Saturday and it was really cool. 
Four families showed up!!!! Even our new investigators showed up and they loved our members!!!!!! They might be the white in June!!!!! 

Also a friend sent a lot of photos of me through instagram so if you have a photo from a Mexican it is probably me.  Another thing do not make your accounts private, it is so hard to show members and people my friends and family if your accounts are private. 
You can make the boy leave the Star Wars theatre, but you can't take the Star Wars our of the boy!

Cant be that bad in Mexico, I believe that translates to "Krispy Kreme"

Not sure about the fingers to the head, but the Sister threesome is now two, and cody adores his Sister Missionaries!

Sounds like the Cody we all know and love again.

How are you guys doing??? Not much mail so I am guessing normal.

Well there were changes in the mission here in Aguascalientes!!!! I do not know if they will be good or bad though!!!! So we will not have zone meeting only zone conferences 6 hours every change with the President!!!!!

I freaking love my trio of hermanas in my district. They are my favorite, we are like best friends!!!!!!!! They even laugh at my jokes!!!!!!!! So my district is pretty awesome!!!!

Some person ran my foot over and did not stop or anything just honked at me and cursed at me!!!!

BYU Idaho was in Aguascalientes and performed a concert and all of the missionaries and members were there I saw Johnathan and all the people from my other area it was fantastic to see everyone!!!!!!!!

So with all of the success that my companion and I have had we started to visit members to win there confidence and in 3 weeks we finally got it!!!!!! One hermana came up to us and said Elders I have people for you guys to visit!!!! They are expecting you guys on Friday with me so we need to go!!!!! We also received 2 more from a family so that was really great!!!!!!!!

Missionaries can't resist photos of the local flavor

No more bicycles in his mission!!

Elder Magana with the quilt Chris sent him.  

Jonathon gets baptized in Cody's old area.

Strep throat, and a couple of new investigators!!

Well I finally know what I have....... I have strep!
Hermana Hernandez had her husband call me and send me to the hospital! You can never say no to the President, so I gave in and left.
The doctor looked down my throat, and did not even need the flashlight!  
I opened my mouth and she said HO.
I said is it bad?
She said it was the worst throat she has ever seen.
I asked her how many throats she has seen
Uummm Elder “Smilie”, I am a throat doctor I have seen too many.
Then she asked me how have you been able to speak eat and drink? 
I told her it has been tough. 

Transfers were this week and Elder Gurrero and I are staying in Pabellon.  I do not know if I am happy or sad, but we will work through this!!!! 
We worked really hard this week when I could.  Hermana Hernandez commanded me to stay in the house for a day.  When we did get outside it was like nuts!! less actives, members, and the investigators we have it was really great!!!!!  

In my district I now have a trio of hermanas and I have two really great zone leaders!!!!!!!!! We will see how this change goes!!!!!!!!! I hope it will go well!!!!!!

We found two new investigators. I do not know what will happen with them but we will see!!

Still finding Ford trucks to admire!!!

Better week this week, and a new investigator...those things go hand in hand!!


This week was pretty funny and good!!!!

First a drunk guy came up to me and started to scream at me and said teach me the word of god! 
So Elder Guerrero started to teach him and I just started to laugh and said ya we need to go Elder!

Hey I need fotos!! I keep trying to find a place that I can send some to you, but it is so hard! 

GOOD NEWS!!! Johnathan got baptized! You guys do not know him but he was an investigator who asked me to baptize him, but I transferred.  He started to cry when I said I was leaving! 

MORE GOOD NEWS!!!!! Family Marine got callings in the church, they are primary teachers!! 

Watching priesthood and general conference was a little tough not to be home sick!!! Pizza Factory after priesthood! Mile high roles in the morning, freak! 

After the first session of conference a sister came up to me and said Elder your companion slept during conference!!!! I responded man that is just great!!!!!! She said why????? I said did you hear President Uchtorf, the best sleep is church sleep!!!!!!! She was kind of mad at me after JAJAJAJAJA.

Hermana Nicholas will return from here!!!! She lives in Ogden. I will tell her to visit you guys!! 


I am trying to send your package to Utah, so just be patient please!

I love you so much!! You have no idea! I have learned so much stuff from you I cannot tell you!!!!!!!

Package from Home
