Elder... FRIO!

Cold week for all. Its like I´m living on a freezer, pero esta bien! Continue working because the work is true. Well the members here is now calling me Elder Frio because everytime I shake  their hands they feel the coldness of my soul. hihihi! Pero I guess because my body is not used to this kind of weather. 

Being on trio is hard because every time were on split we need to wait for the other that sometime makes our schedule  on the worst scenario. Just like what happen 2 or 3 days ago, becasue were not able to eat our dinner and so the pensionista sends in our room our food. So party eating. hahhaa! joke. 

I was able to eat ceviche, it taste good. Nothing bad happen to me. hihihi! 

We had a baptism last saturday and our investigator too attended the servince and makes me feel happy. Well the baptism was from Elder Valdes area, so I don´t know if its counted to us . I hope it was for us to because were in trio. hihihi! But I´m not into statistic so it doesn´t matter to me. But what makes me more happy was that 3 of our investigators attended the church service. Were been waiting for them since last week and now there is it. The waiting is now wasted because we don´t just wait but we act to respond on our waiting. 

The Spirit really speaks to the investigators need during our lessons or even on contacting. The Lord really guides us if we choose to act upon him. This week I learn about being obedient partof working on His vineyard, that we can really receive His power if we obey and do His will. Its not easy, especially waking up and taking a cold shower every morning but I know He blesses me every time I choose His will, He helps me on every situation. 

Well this is my email to our president,

Ha sido una gran semana para nosotros trabajar en el viñedo del Señor. Realmente cosechar una buena cosecha en nuestro trabajo esta semana. A pesar de que no hay bautismo en nuestra área, sigue siendo un buen sentimiento que nuestros investigadores continúan progresando e incluso asisten a la iglesia el domingo pasado. Todavía esperábamos más para asistir que es por eso que planeamos conseguir una meta alcanzable que sabemos que progresará y se comprometerá a actuar de acuerdo a lo que el espíritu nos dice.

La obra del Señor es verdadera y continúa fluyendo según nos guía. Siento más el Espíritu cada vez que nos apoyamos en el espíritu y también me ayuda a hablar el idioma de la misión y también a ayudar a nuestros investigadores a sentir el consuelo y la paz que el Evangelio restaurado podría dar. La esperanza que el evangelio nos da hace que me sienta cómodo enseñar acerca de ello a los demás y no estar avergonzado porque sé que me ayuda a tener una mejor comprensión de la vida no sólo aquí en la tierra sino la vida que viene con mi familia.

Sé como lo siento a nuestros investigadores el cambio de vida que el evangelio puede dar para mejorar nuestra vida a través de vivir y guardar los mandamientos de Dios. También aprendo esta semana la importancia de ser exactamente obediente. A pesar de que soy imperfecto, todavía a través de mis deseos y el esfuerzo de actuar en Su nombre y mi deber, me ayuda a mejorar mi trabajo y no preocuparse mucho porque sé que él está allí para mí.

Eso es todo para esta semana Presidente. Espero que mi trabajo sea bueno en el viñedo de los Señores aquí en el Perú que satisfago Su voluntad para mí. Más énfasis en los objetivos, no sólo estadísticamente sino para la conversión del investigador en Su restablecido Evangelio.

Well thats all! Love you ALL! Next week again

6 Meses for the WIN!

Super fun amazing week. A lot of activity and happenings last week. Loving it so badly hahaha! Im learning now how to ¿ganchilyo? and the two stick also, I forgot what is called

We had a Zone Conference last Jueves it was so amazing to learn new stuffs that really helps a lot on our work. So tricky for me kasi they speak spanish while teaching the principles of teaching like the Savior. It makes me understrand more the need of know as soon as possible the language to help the hungry souls of MANTARANA, TARMA!

We had an activity after Zone Conference, a practice teaching entitled, ´Maestro como el Maestro´. Im not a participant on that activity because only for 6 months up in the field can do the practice teaching, but still had a chance to facilitate and see how to have a better teaching skills from other missionary. 

Well my batchmate in CCM is on our Zone and they slep on our apartment, happy time with them to know his progress.

Also last Saturday was my companions Birthday ánd we celebrate it with the District as we surprise him after out District Meeting. So amazing to celebrate with other missionary. hihih! 

We also had another celebration of his on the Branch President´s house which is another cake. 

We also had another celebration of his on the Branch President´s house which is another cake. 

But last was also a blast. So its Fast Sunday and during the testimony meeting I really felt the spirit while the members bore their testimony and that is the most powerfull promting to me to bear mine own too. And its amazing because it was more fluent than what I think of. The power of the Spirit is real, trully is!

So now this is what I send to our mission President:

Estoy muy feliz por el éxito de esta semana. Aprendo mucho de sus talleres y de la práctica de la enseñanza. Me hizo comprender la importancia de conocer las necesidades de los investigadores y no sólo enseñarles la doctrina. Es muy importante usar Predicar mi Evangelio para ayudarnos a acercarlos a Dios, desarrollar fe en él y actuar sobre él. Sé que conduciría a la conversión ya un cambio poderoso del corazón.

Tener también la práctica de enseñar con los Asistentes y ser su escucha me hace tener una idea de enseñar esos principios.

Bueno, mi compañero tuvo su cumpleaños el sábado pasado. Fue una buena experiencia para él y para mí como su compañero.

También experimentamos este domingo un gran tiempo con nuestro investigador mientras invitamos al presidente de la rama a ayudarnos a desarrollar la confianza en el Señor ya conocer más el evangelio restaurado. Fue una enseñanza increíblemente grande, y realmente sentí el espíritu y sé que ellos también lo hacen.

El Espíritu del Señor es realmente real y estoy feliz de compartirlo a través de la predicación del Evangelio a los demás. Bueno, creo que mi español está haciendo bien, poco a poco. Comenzaron a comprenderme más después de que me oyeron dar mi testimonio ayer. Gracias por todo el Presidente. Construir la confianza con la ayuda de los miembros es real, más poderoso y más ayuda para convertirse
Pray for our investigator. Love you all! Till next week! Goodbless!

Love lots,
Elder Francia

Spanish is REAL!

Its a Happy week for all! We had some great experience, some ups and down. There is like a fiesta thing here and the marching band really makes the beat. But still continue to find and work hard. 

We had a lo of potential investigators who were so amazing and hospitable. They were like Filipino too but different dialect. Theirs a lo of `abuelo/a` here and live alone. We had great investigators too. One of our investigator is Sandra, 12 years old and really want to baptize. She even wants to become a missionary someday that part of her prayer one time is that she ask those things, the truhfullness of the gospel and many more. It was themost heart felt and AMAZING prayer I heard from an investigator. 

Great view right? on our apartment. Well I`m starting to love the place even though is cold as always. The people love me too, so `amable` that one time a woman kiss me he cheeks, *freeze for a while and don`t know what to do, Well she`s a fuure investigator that`s why. So now were trying to be more carefull on that kind of situation. 

 A photo with our amazing chief Hermana Sara, our pentionista. Im loving all those hings even though I`m quite homesick. huhuhu! But don`t worry, I`m geting better and beter each day as I focus on he work of he Lord. Need more sweaters for cold season and I`m loving it.

I testify the power and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Missionary work is real and powerfull as it helps others to be converted and recieved the eternal happiness, the eternal life. The gift of tongues and interpretation dwells more in my heart as I learn to love him especially his children on their eternal soul. Next week again. Chao!

Here now in Huancayo and serving with the fullness of mine intents. The scenery here is so good, mountains, hills and the freezing cold weather. Were 8 in our batch and so happy to ride on a suite doubledecker bus on my awesome haircut. So classy. hihih!

Its great to meet the mission president and our trainors. So my companion is Elder Woltjen and is super good to me. He expects a lot from me because he said I am better than him when he was a greenie and that he wants me to train after this cycle of possiple because I´ve been out for couple of months and that he said I can do it very well. Well our area is on Tarma District, Mantarana Branch. Well during the ride we had on a van becuase ther is no bus thattime is that when I´m about to sleep. A car hit us, on part of my side where I´am sitting. Broken glasses everywhere but I´m good also my companion, some minor scratch on the other passengers. 

Far behind the picture is the real accident were two cars really hit bad. So President and his wife pick us up and went to the hospital to check us but I all good, thats good news. We spend another day on Huancayo before really going to our area.

My stuffs were goos ao don´t worry. My companion just had a minor ¿concusion? I don´t know if its correct. hihihi! Well the the next ride we had to our area is on bus now and the view of our area a far was so cool.

Our area is so cold and I don´t know if I can live here for long. The members were good, our pensionista is good too and cooks good food. The were  really amaze because I´m from far away land. Food became my terrible problem because it is so weird. Well just last Saturday  I had a really bad diarrhea that I go to the restroom for almost 20 plus times within 24 hours. Good thing I was able to attend the sacrament. I had also a chance to baptize this saturday in spanish. I testify the Holy Ghost is real and it really helps me to testify in spanish to to find new investigatos. Thats all for now. Chao. NO much to write. Next week again!

Love lots,
Elder Francia
