I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and I hope you guys have a Happy New Year, as well! As another year comes to a close, we have the wonderful opportunity to analyze ourselves and see how we grew this past year, what goals we were able to achieve, and also of course, what we need to work on for the next year! I honestly cannot believe for a second that 2016 comes to a close this week. I think this was the fastest year of my whole life, and the most challenging, rewarding and best for my life as well! 2016 is a year that will always be remembered, probably every single day of my life as the year that I spent every single second as a missionary of the Lord!

I know that we have all grown this year.  As we look back and think about who we were and who we are, we should be able to see growth in ourselves, even if it is a little growth. Even if it is something that seems insignificant, progression is the most important thing! As this year ends, I can honestly say that I have grown and changed a lot, in ways that continue to surprise me, but most of all in my relationship and understanding of Jesus Christ, His Atonement, and His gospel. 

I know the kind of person I want to be forever, and exactly what it takes to become that person! I know that through our trials, we grow and we can achieve the purpose that Heavenly Father has set for us.  I know that we play a huge role in the happiness of others as we share the gospel with them.  I know that Jesus Christ lives and is our Savior, and that what He did is personal for everyone! I know that day by day as we try our best, His grace and Atonement is what will carry us! I know that through Joseph Smith, Heavenly Father has restored His gospel, as a means whereby we may be able to live eternally with our families. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and contains the answers to all of life's problems and difficulties, and was written for us and our personal trials and hardships! I hope that all can realize everything we have to rejoice about as we strive every day to be better, to live our lives according to the commandments of God, and honor our covenants and remember Him every day! I know that Jesus Christ loves me, is aware of my struggles and weaknesses, and is with me every step of the way to lift me up!

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me, confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me. I tremble to know that for me he was crucified, that for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died”

I hope you all have a wonderful week, a Happy New Year, and that you take advantage of the wonderful gift Heavenly Father has given us, that is the family!

I love you all and am very thankful for all the support and prayers!!

Que terminen bien el año J

Feliz Navidad

Hello Everybody!

Well, there is only 1 week before Christmas, and man did this year just fly by! I hope that maybe ya'll can even have a white Christmas this year. Honestly, I can't even imagine snow or cold right now at this time of the year here in Argentina with temperatures not even getting below 100, haha. But no matter the climate or how far away from home you are, Christmas is always a special time of the year!

This week we had a baptism. Andrea got baptized and it was an incredible experience. It was one of the most spiritual baptisms I have been a part of. It was really special! This experience here in Virreyes was a little different teaching an investigator. When we take investigators to church, everyone gives them the best welcoming and immediately supports them, which is something that I haven't up until this point seen very much here in Argentina. It makes all the difference! So whenever investigators come to church, just be their friend.  It makes all the difference having the support of a friend, how small it may be, as an investigator is investigating the church! These converts are those that don’t have to rely on the missionaries for all the help they need because they have friends and leaders that they already have great relationships with!

This week I was thinking a lot about differences between people who are happy, and people who are not. Sometimes we think that temporal happiness is what we need to always be happy, a nice car, nice house, lots of money, and other things that meet our temporal needs. But I know that there is a whole lot more to it! And the thought kept coming to me, “that they may always remember Him.” I think that true happiness that never ends come from a constant daily thanks and remembrance of our Savior, Jesus Christ. As we think about him throughout the day, His sacrifice, His love, and His example, how could we ever be sad? We may not have everything in the world (or so it seems), but we will always have a happiness through Jesus Christ...knowing that He died for us so that we may be able to have success in this life, and get through our trials, and truly be happy in an eternal perspective.

As we always remember Him, we have the promise to always have His spirit to be with us as well, which brings even more happiness and direction. If we can think more about Christ, we will be better, happier, feel more purpose, and be a light for other people!

I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves us and knows us perfectly. His gospel is perfect, and is the guide for our true happiness. As we come closer to Him, remember Him, and try our best to live like Him, a happiness will come into our lives that we have never experienced before!

I love you guys and wish to all a very Merry Christmas!

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all have had a great week and that everyone is enjoying this wonderful Christmas season. Today in the Light the World calendar is “Jesus taught others and so can you.”  I would teach my brother how to shoot a basketball ;) haha, just kidding, Zach!  But in all seriousness, I have seen that as we teach others, we end up learning a whole lot more, and in the process, help those we teach to grow in their testimony of Christ, or learn new skills, or whatever it may be! Jesus Christ always taught by example with the way He lived His life, and that is one thing that I always learned from my parents, teaching by example and love! We can all be examples, and help those around us to become better, and truly light the world!

This past week, I was walking down the street and felt that I needed to knock the door of a specific house, and when I did, someone came outside and we began to talk. We talked of course about Jesus Christ, and the faith that he had in Him. He told me something that caught my attention. Up until this point, he has never had a hope that through Christ, there is a life after this one. We kept talking and he told me that his mother had died exactly a year ago from tomorrow (the day after the day I contacted him), and that he really never thought that he could ever see her again. I felt very blessed to be able to testify to him that through the restored gospel and atonement of Jesus Christ, we are able to live eternally with our families. I helped him to learn that as he comes closer to Christ, and as he strives to strengthen his faith of Christ, he will have this same hope that we all share. I am very thankful for this opportunity to live with my family for eternity, and the wonderful and perfect plan of salvation. We have so much to be thankful for, and a great thing to teach for those who do not have this knowledge. The funny part of the story is after we were talking for a while I asked him if he would like to live with his mother again and he thought about it a little bit, then looked at me straight in the face and said “Pero está claro, sería como meter un gol de media cancha” haha. That means “Of course, it would be like scoring a goal from half field” haha, and he was dead serious! I thought that was awesome! Argentines always have to relate everything to soccer.

Yesterday, we had Stake Conference, and to start the conference they had 5 jovenes come up and speak that have received their mission calls recently. Then 6 more came up to speak after, that have returned home from their missions recently. It was my favorite part of the whole conference.  I enjoyed hearing about some experiences they have had, how pumped they are to go out and serve. Something was similar about all of the testimonies of the returned missionaries, and it is the fact that they came to truly know Christ, and understand mejor the atonement, and that is something that can never be taken away! I am so grateful for this time that the Lord has given me to serve Him and truly come closer to Him and to becoming the person that He needs me to be!

Sunday afternoon, Boca and River played, the 2 biggest soccer teams here in Buenos Aires..and about every 20 minutes the whole city erupted with people shouting "Goalllll!!" I have been here a while so I know how it is, but yesterday was over the top..Elder Lyon and I had to take cover, haha. Every time we went to an appointment, they either weren't there because they went somewhere else to watch the game, or they didnt want to talk to us because the game was on, haha. It made it a little bit difficult to work, but that's just how it is sometimes. At one point we were walking in a part of our area that is a little more dangerous, and there was a bunch of people holding up a stick with fire at the end burning boca jerseys, haha. They took it too far. I just imagined it was a Duke jersey and it made me feel better, haha! But whatever you hear about soccer down here in Argentina is true!

Andrea is progressing really well and will be getting baptized this Saturday! We have also found some more couples we are working with, and also a part member family that just moved to our ward who have been inactive for a long time. We crossed them in the street and we are starting to work with them to get them back to church. None of their kids are members of the church, so we are hoping to be able to help them!

As a mission, we are reading Jesus the Christ with the focus of strengthening our testimonies on the atonement and also in becoming more Christ like. I am very excited about it because becoming more like Christ is something that we have to strive for every day, and Jesus the Christ is an incredible book that has already helped me gain more knowledge of the Savior. We had a zone meeting last week that was probably the best of my mission and we talked about the importance of consecration. We then fasted as a zone, so with the help of the Lord we could think about ways to be more consecrated. We are doing a fast of 40 days of these things that we need to give up to be more consecrated! I know as we are more consecrated to the work of the Lord we will see more miracles, and be the means of helping a lot more people! Consecration doesn't only apply to missionaries.  I think we can all be more consecrated to the work of the Lord and His Gospel, and strive more to live always by His teachings. As we do so, all the blessings promised by the Lord will be poured out over us!

Jesus Christ lives and loves us!  He is the Son of God, and has made everything possible through his grace and atonement! 

I love you all! Thank you so much for all ya'll do for me! Have a great week!

Buen Dia!!

Hello everyone! Hope all is well! This week was a good one down here in Argentina! It is getting really hot. I am starting to remember how hot it really gets down here being outside all day! But this year I have air conditioning so it isn't as extreme, but I am still glad I got the experience without it last year haha! I am feeling pretty much back to normal from the pneumonia, so thanks so much for all your prayers. They helped me a lot! People say that you never forget Christmas in your mission, and that is very true! I will never forget last Christmas, or this one tampoco! There is a special feeling being a missionary of the Lord every day, but even more during this time of year! It is incredible!

Here in our mission there is a thing called “Pension of the week” that the Andersons do that goes out to the companionship that has the cleanest pension every week, and mom you might be surprised but we won! Haha! I'm still not a big fan of the dishes but I have been working hard to keep a nice place that the spirit can always reside in J

One of our investigators, Andrea, is progressing really well and should be getting baptized either this week or the next! She could get baptized this week but we feel that another week would do a lot of good, so we are working towards that! She is a single mom of 3 really young kids, and is super humble and really wants to follow Christ. One of the coolest experiences is teaching someone that you can feel really just wants to follow Christ, and has desires to do all that is asked of them to change and follow Him, and that is what it is all about! We are also teaching a couple other people in her family, but they are struggling getting started and coming to church. Other than them, we have found a lot of possibilities that we will continue to be working with, but the main person to talk about would be Andrea.

I watched the Christmas Devotional this morning and something really caught my attention that one of the speakers said, but I can't remember which one it was. He said that the Christmas season isn't just to remember Christ's birth, but also the type of person He was. That made me think a lot about the person He was, and also about the “Light the World” program that the church has put out for this month. It helps us understand who He was, what He did, and the grand example that He is for all! As we do these little things every day, like little acts of service, or read the scriptures, or seeing the good in people, giving compliments, we will become more like the Savior, and understand more WHO He was. I am so grateful for my Savior, and the great example He is for me, of charity, service and love to all. No matter their situation or circumstance, He always saw the good in everyone and always lifted people up. 

I hope that all of you have watched this video of Christmas and are trying to do these things every day to be more like the Savior, and truly light the world! You are all lights in this world, and everybody needs your light!! 

I know that this church is true, and that Christ has given us absolutely everything we need to be successful and light the world! We have so much to be grateful for!

I love you all! Have a great week!! Let me know if any of you need anything! Thanks for all ya'll do!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! The other Elders in the office and I all went over to the Anderson's for Thanksgiving lunch..Well, it was really good but there is no Turkey here in Argentina..and I never noticed that but it's true. Hard to have a Thanksgiving lunch without Turkey but I'd say that Sister Anderson did a really good job with the limited resources found here, haha! So that was fun!

Other than that, we have started working with the family of our ward mission leader, who are not members and usually reject the missionaries terribly. But this week we went by and we started teaching them and a couple of them accepted baptismal dates!  So we will be working with them!! Other than that my week was a little slow because I caught pneumonia. So, I have been resting and trying to recover from that, but I am feeling a lot better! So hopefully I will get back out working tonight or tomorrow!! 

While I was resting I have been listening to the Book of Mormon..I actually listened to the whole book of Alma in one day, so I was pretty happy about that! I learned a lot from the examples of the great missionaries in Alma, and how their only desires were to serve the Lord and help others come unto Christ! They were men who truly felt the love of Christ for all, and who wanted all to know the wonderful blessings of the Atonement and Plan of Happiness that are only found in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ!

One thing that I truly love about Christmas, that I have come to understand a whole lot better these past 2 Christmas seasons is the love that the Savior has for us, and the perfect example of service and charity that He was. I hope you all have seen the new LIGHTtheWORLD video! It is great, and we can all help someone in small ways, but we never know how much it will be cherished! I hope that we can all be a little more charitable this Christmas season, so that we can help those that truly need it!! 

Jesus Christ lives! And everyone needs to know it! And He has provided for us all that we need to be successful, happy, and return to live with Heavenly Father!

I love you all! Have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Hope you all eat a ton of turkey and stuffing and all the good southern stuff, I'll be sticking with my milanesa and fideos!

This week has been a good one! My companion and I have put some really good and challenging metas down so we can see some big differences this week! I feel that this week is going to be a big one, so we are excited for it! 

In my reading this week of the Book of Mormon, I was reading in Alma 5, which is an awesome chapter, one of the most powerful testimonies in the Book of Mormon! One verse caught my attention, and we also talked about it in Elders Quorum on Sunday. It is Alma 5:14 que dice; 

 "And now behold, ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of GodHave ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?¨

After reading that, I remembered a talk by Elder Bednar that talked about our role in helping other people have this mighty change of heart. He says that it is "our job to take the word unto the person, and it is their job to take it into."

So, that being said, we play a big role in this process for other people, as we share our testimonies and as we are examples to others as well! And I know that this mighty change of heart is the best thing that could ever happen in the life of any person on this Earth, and only is possible by the help of the Lord, and through us as the instruments in His hands as we prepare ourselves and strive to be the people that He wants us to be!

I hope that everyone can recognize all that they have to be thankful for in this special Holiday of Thanksgiving! I am so very thankful for the gospel and Heavenly Father's plan of happiness that is a perfect and merciful plan, and also for my wonderful family who supports me in all that I do!

I love you all! Have a great week!

Faith to Move Mountains


I hope you all have had a nice, cold week up north ;) haha! This week has been great, very busy getting ready for transfers but it has been a good week! Not a whole lot has changed. I am still here in the offices with the same companion (Elder Lyon), and I don't think that will be changing for a while, so no changes there either! 

The biggest thing to talk about from this past week is a meeting we had with President this past week as a zone, and we talked about some very important things that really helped, desire, and the atonement. I learned so much, probably one of the best meetings I have had my whole life! I came out of that meeting so inspired and uplifted, and I want to share some of the things that I really loved.

In Preach My Gospel, 2 things were shared that really stuck out to me. One was "As you increase your understanding of the atonement of Jesus Christ, your desire to share the Gospel will increase." And the other is "If you have faith in Jesus Christ, you will accomplish what the Lord wants and needs you to accomplish." 

These 2 things really hit home with me, and helped me to think in a way that I really haven´t ever thought before. Things that are very simple, but sometimes overlooked. The only thing stopping us from accomplishing everything the Lord needs us to accomplish is our own faith. And my question would be, how do we truly build our faith to the point that we can accomplish all things? And that is something I have been thinking about all week! One thing that I learned is that faith is a gift from Heavenly Father. Sometimes we ask Him for more patience, maybe a little more charity, safety and protection, but how often do we ask Him to help us increase our faith? If our level of faith is the only thing impeding us from accomplishing what the Lord needs, I think it would be something very important to pray about. From then on, in every prayer, I always pray to be able to increase my faith! 

Now, another thing that plays a big part in this are our desires. Our desires to get better, to be more like Christ, and to help other people. I have seen in my time on the mission, how much desires really can change as you truly come to know your Savior, and truly come to understand at least a little more, the atonement. And this knowledge and change of desire has defined my mission, and made it very personal! I am so incredibly thankful for the atonement of Christ, so that I can always improve, and keep going up in the process of becoming. I want to understand everything possible about the Atonement of Christ, so that these desires can always keep getting better and better, so that I can be the missionary that I need to be, and accomplish everything I have been sent here to do. However, this does not only apply to missionaries, but to everyone in our lives! As we understand more fully the Atonement, our desires change! And I am positive of that! The Savior died for me personally. This is nothing general. He died for every single one of us personally, and knows everything we need to progress and be happy!

I read a talk by Bruce R McConkie that is titled "The Purifying Power of Gethsemane" and near the end he says; "I am one of his witnesses, and in a coming day I shall feel the nail marks in his hands and in his feet and shall wet his feet with my tears. But I shall not know any better then than I know now that he is God’s Almighty Son, that he is our Savior and Redeemer, and that salvation comes in and through his atoning blood and in no other way." 

I know that Christ lives, that He died for me so that I never have to suffer, and that I will live eternally with my family. I know that some of those drops of blood in Gethsemane were mine, and for that, the atonement of Jesus Christ is personal, and carries me! 
I love my Savior, and I know that He loves you all, and wants every single one of you to be happy, and has provided the way for that to challenge for you all is to recognize this week that the atonement wasn't just for everyone, but for you personally! 
I love you all!! Have a great week!

The Will of the Father

Well, I have no idea how it is already Monday again, or where the time goes! But I guess that is just how it has to go sometimes! I hope you all had a great week!! We are already in November, which to me is pretty crazy. Update from Argentina: it is getting pretty hot here, All the elders die here during the summer, but us Carolina boys don't have any problem with the humidity! Just have to ask for some jugo and keep on going haha!

This past week I have really reflected on the importance of doing the will of the Lord. Every missionary knows that there really isn't a huge secret to missionary work, but there are a lot of things that really help. Sometimes we fall into the habit of focusing on what we want and think is right more than trying to focus on what the Lord really wants, and that is a big lesson that I have learned! I think as we focus more on the will of the Lord, and align our will with His, that is when we can really be successful, and progress how we are meant to.

Well, that is about all I have for today! 

Just know that I love you all, and if anyone needs anything just let me know! 

The church is true!! Jesus Christ lives, and loves you all more than you could ever imagine. And His love is very personal for everyone! It is up to us to realize that! 

Que tengan una buena semana!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!
I hope that you all are having a great fall so far, even though I hear that it is still pretty warm there! These weeks are really starting to fly..everyday is pday it seems like haha!
This past week was pretty good, we found a ton of people during the week and we worked super hard but nobody came to church, which is something that has always been tough down here, but they will get there!! Something really awesome that happened this week was we had just left the office one day and we were walking in the street and 2 guys from the corner came up to us and were signaling us down (in Buenos Aires that means you should probably run, haha!) but we stayed to see what they had to say. So we started to share the Book of Mormon with them, then like 4 other people came up to us and my comp grabbed a couple and I grabbed a couple and before you know it we have the whole street around learning about the Book of Mormon. It's like one of those Mormon messages stories, It was pretty cool. From that, we found some families that we will be working with, so we are really excited about that!! All of them also passed us some references so we were able to blow that place up!
We have to flood the earth with the BOOK OF MORMON!!!!!!!!!!
Other than that, this week was pretty normal, we have changed some things in the offices to make our work more effective, which has been a great blessing but taking some time to get used to! We are already going into the last 2 weeks of the transfer which is crazy because I feel like I just got here, so time never stops flying!
I haven't been able to study as much as I would like to with all the crazy things that are going on, but I do the best I can. I have been reading in Mosiah, in chapter 14 and 15 it really has some great things about the Atonement that I love! These are the words of Isaiah in chapter 14:

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground; he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him there is no beauty that we should desire him.

 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
I especially love verse 5 the part that says and with his stripes we are healed. Really, there is no other way we could be healed if it wasn't for Christ's suffering. He was bruised for our iniquities and has carried our sorrows..and He knows us perfectly.  That is something that I wish everybody could truly know, that Christ knows us all perfectly, better than we know ourselves. Sometimes when we ask ourselves "How could I ever get through this?" Maybe we really don't know the answer, but Christ always will, and will be as ready to help us now as He was in Gethsemane when He suffered for all the pain and affliction in the world, anything we could ever go through, and is as personal as anything we could ever think of.
If everyone knew this, I don't think we would suffer nearly as much as we do, because we will know where to go and find peace, like President Nelson said ¨When the focus of our lives is on Jesus Christ and his gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening - or not happening - in our lives."
I know that this is how it is because I live it every day of my life, and is a joy that nobody could ever take from me!
Les amo!

La Luz de la Verdad

Como andan??
Hope everyone has had a great week and adjusting well to the cold! This time of year is always weird because I am getting into the hot weather, and all of you are getting to cold weather! But you guys have it better...I promise haha!
This week was a good week, I had a lot of awesome learning experiences in the office and out of the office as well! One morning, I was studying a talk that was the "talk of the week" on, and in this talk there was a quote by President Eyring that really touched me. It said "I have had prayers answered. Those answers were most clear when what I wanted was silenced by an overwhelming need to know what God wanted." I reflected a lot on that quote this week, and I read it everyday, and I have seen a huge difference in my daily prayers, and how much closer I feel to my Heavenly Father. Sometimes we fall into the routine of saying repetitive things in our prayers, asking for the same things, and talking about the same things, whether it has something to do with the will of the Lord or not. And I had noticed that about my prayers, and I knew I needed to change that! So since then, my prayers have become so much more sincere and I have truly felt a difference! Things very simple can go a long way! If we pray truly wanting to know what God wants, we will always be answered, in various forms, but the answer will come!
I was studying as well in Mosiah 2, and that is probably one of my favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon, I would invite all of you to read it this a family! King Benjamin is the man! There were a couple scriptures that really caught my attention in this chapter about service, and that we will always be indebted to Heavenly Father.

 20 I say unto you, my brethren, that if you should render all the thanks and praise which your whole soul has power to possess, to that God who has created you, and has kept and preserved you, and has caused that ye should rejoice, and has granted that ye should live in peace one with another—
 21 I say unto you that if ye should serve him who has created you from the beginning, and is preserving you from day to day, by lending youbreath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own will, and even supporting you from one moment to another—I say, if ye should serve him with all your whole souls yet ye would be unprofitable servants. (In spanish it says the word "useless" which is what really caught my attention.)
 22 And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you.
 23 And now, in the first place, he hath created you, and granted unto you your lives, for which ye are indebted unto him.
 24 And secondly, he doth require that ye should do as he hath commanded you; for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and therefore he hath paid you. And ye are still indebted unto him, and are, and will be, forever and ever; therefore, of what have ye to boast?
Now, I would like to explain my thoughts on this. We could give the Lord all the thanks in the world, we could serve him with all of our souls and everything we had, on a justice standpoint we would still be useless compared to all that He has given us. But that is the thing, thanks to the Atonement, and all that the Lord has given us we can be carried up by grace, then comes verse 22 which says that the thing that He really requires us to do is obey the commandments. I want to focus on the 2 great commandments, that we love Heavenly Father with all our heart, might, mind and soul, and we love our fellow men like unto ourselves. Heavenly Father gave us everything, he gave us His Son, and that is what He asks of us in turn? That we love Him and serve His children, and obey his commandments?
Well, let's think about that. That is nothing compared to what He did for us! 
I am so incredibly thankful for my for my Heavenly Father, for providing me a Savior, who is His son, so that I may be able to live with Him again. This is far more personal than we could ever understand, but through service and diligence we can get a little taste!
I love you all and hope you all have a great week!
