YATE, HOLA & HELLO :) all of the languages I'm learning
This week has been amazing we found a lot of people to teach and most of them have been very interested. There was a door we knocked on and it was a young man from Mexico as we met with him he knew a lot about the church and he was a very great young man as we started to teach about the restoration he said oh i have a book of Mormon. I knew that we were prompted by the holy ghost to go and knock on his door this young man was waiting for his answer to his prayer, he said he wanted to come closer to Christ and that his friend gave him a book of Mormon. He also thought that Mike Katic was awesome. It's amazing how if we all share the gospel or simply give somebody a book of Mormon that the lord will provide a way for the missionaries to come and teach his children.

We have been working in this certain trailer park there is about 63 trailers and all of them speak Spanish never on my mission have i had that many people that speak Spanish all at once. I know that I'm here in Durango for a reason and if i simply decided that i don't want to go on a mission then all of these people would of had the chance to hear the Gospel. Yesterday was my first lesson in Spanish that i had to teach all by myself. It was hard it was probably the hardest lessons i have ever been in but i realized that if i rely on the Lord he will tell me what to say and what to do through the power of the holy ghost! Its amazing how strong the spirit was in that lesson. After this lesson we had another Spanish lesson to go teach and i wen tot the wrong door and it was a lady named Maria. I  realized that i had the wrong door as soon as she opened it. Some way i was able to testify in Spanish and leave her with a message she wants us to return and its so humbling how if i don't worry about what I'm going to say the holy ghost really helps me out. Teaching in a different language is not easy but i do know that what I'm telling heavenly fathers children is true!!
We were walking in another trailer park and we found a man in a hitch hiker trailer it was tiny but as i knocked on the door he simply said come in. Me and my other 2 companions were so surprised that he let us in. All three of us ended up bearing our own personal testimony to this man. Never have i ever felt the spirit so strong on my mission. His eyes were filled with tears and we knew that we planted a seed of faith in his heart.  I know that the Lord really leads us to those that need help or comfort and as missionaries we are called to severe his children my mission has changed me as an individual i see people differently and one thing that I have realized on my mission is that I know that the book of Mormon is true.
 I love my area it has been a blessing and i have met so many people that i know i have been called to serve them!! My area can blossom if we continue to be more and more obedient to the lords commandments!1
