Another Super Week With My New Companion

Hey Mom and Co.
I’m super happy to have started my last change and I couldn’t have asked for a better companion. His name is Elder Sparks and he’s from Thatcher AZ! It’s super fun being with another kid from Arizona. We get along super great. The work is going super great. I still can’t believe I’m almost done with my mission.  We are just going to keep on working as if it was a normal change and try and work as hard as we can.

We have this one girl Andrea that has had a super hard life and she came to church on Sunday and really liked it.  She has accepted to get baptized on the 22nd of March. We are going to have another baptism this week on Saturday. It is for another lady that was really prepared by the Lord. She is really cool and just wants to have a better life. She is one of those people that will be blessed for humbling herself without having the need to. Her family is pretty wealthy and they live in a very nice house but she just wants to have a better life. So we are super happy for her. 

Alright, crazy story time; so my companion spent like the first year and a half of his mission in this one area called Ahuachap├ín.  It's out in the middle of nowhere.  He got really good with a sling shot while he was serving there. So the other day, by our house, he hit a dove with it. We are going to cook it and eat it... ha-ha. That’s my crazy story for the week.

Hey that’s awesome about Chelsea geting into CRNA school. Now we'll have another excuse to go to California:)  As far as a car goes, we can look for some in those first weeks I’m home. I’ll just have to drive the Jag until we can get one;) I just need something to take girls on dates in;)

I'd be up to sing in church the Sunday I speak! I love singing now. I sang at this community activity this week and everyone loved it:-)  I love you all and am so grateful for your love and support! I can’t wait to see you!!!

Changes Coming This Week...

Hey Momma... well things are going good.  I’ve had a sweet head cold all this week, which is just bad enough to bother me but not bad enough to stay in the house ...but it’s finally passing. More than anything it’s annoying because my nose is stuffed up and I can’t sing as good for the investigators. They told us today that my companion is going to have changes so I’m going to have one more companion for my last change...Hopefully I get a good one:-)

We had 5 investigators in church this week. One of them has a date for the end of this month to be baptized. We are also hoping to put a couple more dates with some of our other investigators. The work is going really good. The members and new converts are helping a bunch... especially giving us dinner every night. I love that!  I still don’t get fat though... but no complaints. There is this elder in our mission that has gained 75 pounds here so I’m just counting my blessings.

I still can’t believe that I will be starting my last change! This last change passed by soooo fast that I didn’t even feel it. I’m really excited to start my last change but super nervous at the same time.  I think that you and Dad should invite the missionaries over for dinner as often as you can because I don’t remember that we did that very often. I don’t know how the missionaries are there but you guys should try and develop a good relationship with go out and visit with them or something. I don’t know how their work is there but just try and do what you can to help out the missionaries. It really means a lot to them.

I love you guys a lot! Today we are going to eat lunch with our mission president and watch "Meet the Mormons" because our zone has been working super good and we won a contest that we did in our mission. So we are really excited!  I love you mama and hope y'all have a great week! I know I will!!
Mucho Amour,
Elder Hoy!

Another Great Week!!!

Hey Fam!
Sooooo… this week was the culmination of a bunch of miracles. We had a really great baptism service for Jonny and his mom Vicky, who we found exactly one month ago. They were literally golden investigators that had no problem with anything. They always were super positive. It has literally been like a story you read in the Ensign with them.

We are super stoked now and we also have another lady that accepted a date for her baptism in March. She is super positive as well. She came to church with us yesterday and we are going to go visit her tonight.

Things are just going super good!  There are always small problems, but we always just keep going and everything gets better! The weeks are passing by way too fast!!! I can’t even remember what happened this week! I think everything just got swallowed up preparing for the baptism.

I can’t believe Seth is home already and that Ty and I will be the next ones to come home…so crazy! Aww… that’s a bummer that we can’t go to General Conference. I really wanted to go up to Utah because supposedly my ex-mission presidents were going to go there and have a Santa Ana mission reunion. But I guess we’ll see what happens. I love you all and I pray for you always!!!

Things are Going Super Super Good!

Hey... well things are going super good here. The work is super good. We had 5 investigators in church and we will have 2 baptisms this Saturday! It’s been super cool to see the hand of the Lord in the work lately. Things are going super good and just keep getting better. We found some other super positive investigators this week too. So we are super happy. 

My suit came out nice. The picture is kind of blurry but it’s cool. I honestly can’t believe how fast time goes. The fact that Seth gets home tomorrow and in two months, me and Ty will be home is so crazy. 

It’s been pretty hot here but with nice cool breezes so I can’t complain. The members here are good and everything is going good. I’m excited to get home for General Conference. We could go up to a session! That would be so cool. 

But yeah I really don’t have much to tell. This week was just a good calm week of work. Today we are going to help the sisters here move to another house because where they live isn’t very safe. One of them is coming home on the same flight so you will probably meet her family there in the airport. She’s from Tucson. But yeah I love you guys so much and pray for you always!
Much love
