Hey what's up?

We are doing good! Transfers are a week from today so we will see what
happens. We will get transfer calls on Saturday this week. Elder
Cepeda will probably be leaving since he has been in this area for a
while. Maybe my next companion I will be with for more than one
transfer. I can't seem to keep my companions for very long haha.

This week has been pretty awesome actually. We had a mini zone
conference which was awesome. President Ballard taught us some really
cool stuff about using the scriptures in lessons. It's crazy how
powerful they can be. Also, we went to a stake fair on Saturdaymorning which was so fun haha. We helped serve food and it was so fun
to just hang out for a little while. They also had some old retired
people band perform. It was hilarious.

Other than that, everything is pretty normal. We are going to Molalla
today to hang out with some members. Not the Pedersons though
unfortunately. Nobody wants to go over there but me. Haha. I'll get
back over there eventually haha. It should be fun either way! Molalla
is the greatest haha. I'm glad to hear everything's getting fixed.
Hope you guys have a great week! Love you! Adios!

How are you all doing? Everything here in Beaverton is going
fantastic. We are seeing some real success right now. Our
investigator, Natalia, has come to church the past two weeks. Also, we
had a lesson with her at the Temple Visitor's Center on Saturday which
was really awesome! She told us that she really felt the spirit while
she was there.

Also, thanks to all the Pokemon hunting that is going on right now, we
are able to talk to a lot more people on the streets. We even had some
random people at the church looking for Pokemon. Haha. Anyways, I
don't have a lot of time, but I hope everyone does something awesome
this week! Les amo! Hasta luego!

#46 July

Ay yo!

We are doing really well this week! I guess I'll start with the Fourth of July. We got to go to a fireworks show that night which was really fun! Elder Cepeda and I were just walking around and this lady comes up to us and asks if we had someone to watch the show with and she invited us to sit with her and her nonmember friend. It was really awesome. Although, she told us not to bring up religion with her friend haha because she has already met with missionaries, it was nice to just kinda chill for a night. And staying out late was pretty awesome as well.

We also had a really good lesson with Natalia this week and she came to church yesterday! Woohoo! It was really awesome. We also went to a birthday party for one of the kids in the ward. It was a lot of fun! The Hispanics really do love their piƱatas haha. Other than that, nothing too eventful happened this week. Honestly, it was a pretty boring week. Haha Sounds like it was quite the week at home! That sucks that everything is falling apart! That concert looked pretty cool even though I'm not a fan of Nashville tribute. 

I haven't heard anything about protests in Portland. It doesn't surprise me though. Portland truly is a weird place. I love it but everyone is insane. Glad to hear about Ty. Interesting that him mission president said that. Whatever though. I'm sure he'll be fine! Anyways, I think we are going to some nickel arcade today so that should be fun! Have a good week! Love ya! Adios!!

Happy 4th!!!!

I hope you are all enjoying the day today! I know we are having a
blast here! This week has been a pretty awesome week! First of all, we
had the privilege of attending the temple earlier this week. It is
definitely a blessing to be serving in an area where a temple is so

Also, we had some really awesome lessons with Natalia. She is
progressing very well. She has such a desire to learn and grow closer
to Jesus Christ. It really is an amazing thing to see. She is having
some difficulties with the word of wisdom, but we are working hard to
help her work through it!

Anyways, something that I have come to learn this week is that if we
have the faith necessary, we can do anything! Anything is possible if
we trust in our Heavenly Father and His Son, and all we have to do is
believe. I love being a missionary. I love helping people. Enjoy the
4th of July! What a privilege it is to be in such an amazing country!
It's crazy to think how much others before us have suffered in order
for us to be exactly where we are right now. We are so lucky to be
alive right now! I love you! Have a great week! :)
