Another Good Week!

Hola familia!!!  So... last week they sent me my flight info!! So crazy! April 2nd at 5pm I will see you all there ha-ha!! 

We brought this older man that can barely walk to church. It seemed like he was falling asleep the whole time, but at the end he said he really liked it:-)  We also found a decent amount of positive new investigators this week and 2 of them came to church. We had 5 investigators in the work is going super good for us. 

Last week we had some house inspections in the mission and we spent like 2 hours deep cleaning our house as much as we could. I scrubbed our shower with bleach for like 30 minutes and it still looked the same ha-ha. But we passed with an almost perfect score and the mission president’s wife gave us cookies:-)

My companion is way awesome. It’s impossible to NOT get along with him because he is always so happy and smiling. So I really can’t complain! I just still can’t believe how fast time is going. When we work hard all week... time goes by sooooo fast and it feels like I'm writing you guys every other day. Everything is going really good. I love you all!  Thanks for all of the love and support!

Great Week!

So this week was really good!  Johnny and his mother came to church and they already have a baptism date for the 7th of February! We also had three other people come to church as well. My companion and I are working really good together and things are going very smooth for us. 

We had some really good lessons with some of the members and I’ve been using my ukele again to go sing hymns for the people and they love it so much. Everyone wants to get one and have me teach their children ha-ha. But yeah things are going way good. My companion is super cool and relaxed.

I love you all soooo much and hope you have a great week. I know I will! Thank you for everything! This photo is a picture of me and a missionary companion that Trevor Ward had in Nicaragua! This Mormon world is sooo small!!!!

Hey momma. Well I had changes! I’m super happy! My new area is called Los Pinos. The area is like a huge maze of passages and houses all stuck together. It's way cool and we don’t have to walk as much so I don’t get very dirty like in other areas.  I’m still in the same stake so it’s cool. I get to see all of the missionaries that were in my old zone. 

My new companion's name is Elder Rhead.  He’s from Utah. I’m so happy to be with a white kid!  ha-ha This change, there was a new Hermana that came from Mexico. Her name is Hermana Oy.  When she stood up to introduce herself and then said her name... everyone turned around to look at me... and we all had a good laugh. 

I also said good bye to Elder Martinez, my trainer, and took my last photo with him. He finished his mission. He was, and has been, my favorite companion of my entire mission. I really want to go to Mexico to visit him sometime! And I’m serious about coming back here in July or August! Maybe that could be my birthday present :) ...and you guys can come with me:) 

This week was really cool!  We had a really cool miracle happen. We were passing through this passage and this lady called out to us. She told us that the missionaries used to visit her and her son last year but that they had to move to Honduras.  She hadn't been able to come back until now and wanted us to start coming again to see her. They came to church with us on Sunday and are most likely going to get baptized at the end of the month.    

Things are going really good here. I’m super happy and the time is flying super fast. I love you all and hope y'all have a great week!!
Love, Elder hoy.
Saying Good Bye to Elder Martinez

Brought a New Family to Church:-)

Yeah I got the package! I totally love it! I dig the shirts and the slippers… and all of the other awesome stuff. Oh and I’m getting myself a new suit made so I will look good when I get home. That’s the reason I got the money out of my account. My old suit pants got destroyed about 6 months ago and my suit coat is old and doesn’t match with any of my other pants. 

Dang… that’s so cool that it snowed in the desert! It’s been hot here. I miss cold weather so much.Today they told me that I’m going to have changes on Wednesday so next week I will be writing you from a new area. It will most likely be my last area! So that’s going to be weird... but I’m excited too.

Things have been going a lot better here. We brought 4 investigators to church that had never been before. It was this one lady and her 3 kids. We have been visiting them for a while and we’ve become really good friends with them. They remind me a lot of you guys because they are crazy and fun. I’m so happy that the work is going better.

I’m learning a lot from the scriptures and I’ve been trying to study them more diligently. So I feel a lot better about everything. Thank you so much mom for all of your love and support. I really have felt your prayers and love. I love you so much mom! Have a great week.
Love,Elder Hoy
