week 31 Recap

House partyyyyssss
Well hi everyone I hope all is well first off. Hope you guys had a safe weekend and all your dreams came true this week. If not have patience for in time all will happen that needs to happen.
So not much happened this week and that is because I have been in my house all week. So it’s been an interesting week filled with a lot of studying, Spanish and helping my companion.

So ya my companion had surgery the day after changes so that was a surprise to me haha. I didn’t find out he was having it until after the changes when he told me. So, Wednesday morning we headed to Monterrey and he had his surgery at about 11 am. I was away from him and without a companion for about 5 hrs. that was a new experience but I just sat in the waiting room with the worker hahha. So, we ended up having to the stay the night after his surgery in the hospital so that was super exciting sleeping in the hospital room. He had surgery on his nose by the way because he had like 4 different infections all up in there. So, I stayed the night, the hospital was super nice. I ended up taking like 4 showers to pass time because they had hot water and I haven’t taken a shower with hot water for like 5 months. So, the hospital stay went good and his surgery went good also so that was amazing.

We then got home Thursday and I have been taking care of him since then. He has to take a bunch of medicine each day so I have been his at home doctor for him. I have to have him take his pills at 8 am, 10am, 4pm, 8pm, then my favorite one 12 am. They are all different ones so it’s all good. I also have had to help him walk up and down the stairs in our house because he gets light headed super easy so that’s been awesome. The truth though is that it has been awesome serving him the past week. I have been in my house pretty much all week just helping him. I have definitely learned to have more patience in my life and just to stay positive through it all. I did get out of the house for like 2 hrs. Friday and then Saturday on divisions or short changes with the other Elders here. Well that’s all from me this week. We should be able to start doing missionary work again next Monday.

Stay positive always through all things. You really can learn new things that god wants you to learn through everything that happens. Who knows maybe me feeling like a doctor is telling me that maybe that’s what I should do in life haha.

Read the scriptures my friends and pray always. I love all you guys. Don’t forget the small simple things. Build a foundation that will never shake and build it on the gospel of Jesus Christ. With the gospel, all things all possible.
Push forward alwayssss!!!รง
Love Elder Davis

Week 30 Recap


What is good my beautiful friends and family!!! Well this week was a quick one and a lot happened. I hope you guys had an amazing week this week also. I don’t have much time this week so I will jump right to it. 

   Well yep the time has come to say good bye to my first area on my mission. It has been an incredible last 6 months here filled with so many stories and crazy adventures I will never forget about.  Linares will always have a special place in my heart and it has become my second home. The people are amazing and this is the place where I first learned Spanish haha. I have my lifelong friends, some of you will hear all about the stories I had here when I get home. 

 So, my new area is Alianza Real and it is I think north of Monterrey. I hear that it is all desert up there so that will be super fun haha. I can’t wait for the opportunity to go serve the people and share this beautiful message with them. My new companion will be Elder Ac from Guatemala and I guess he doesn’t speak any English hahah should be fun!!!!

 I love all you guys, be safe and choose the right.

 Tell the ones close to you that you love them and spend time with your family this week.

 Love you all, do the small, simple things always and build a strong foundation for the future.

Catch you next week from my new area!

 Love Elder Davis

Week 29th Recap

Rain Rain you can stay if you want
Well first of I HOPE EVERYONE HAD AN AMAZING WEEKKKK!!!!! Ya so I hope you guys had a sweet week and it was just how you guys wanted it. Mine was good.  Oh Congrats to Mitchell and Becca Boberg, another Cousin Wedding with sealing in the Temple while I’m gone ha.. 
Well it has gotten cooler here so that’s been really nice but it has also been raining a lot. It rained about 5 out of the 7 days this week and when it rains here it rains a lot. The weather does like to play with you and that’s no fun because then you don’t know what to wear for that day. This week it was cold in the morning cold enough for sweaters so we rocked the sweater a few times. Then came the heat at about noon and I wanted to throw my sweater away because it was a dumb idea to bring it. Then came the rain at about 5ish and there are like no clouds in the morning so then I get all wet and it’s just so much fun. It truly has been fun though because its funny to see people’s reactions when to white, soaking wet missionaries knock on their doors, they just laugh and ask what we are doing but it does show them all something. It shows that we are truly here for them and only them.
 Well besides the weather everyone here in Linares and in my zone, are thinking it’s my last week here. I have about 6 months here in Linares now which is insane to think about and I have enjoyed every day of it and I will cherish this little town for the rest of my life. We have transfers next Monday so that’s why everybody is saying that and its starting to set in that they are probably right but who knows it’s what the lord has planned not us. I truly have fallen in love with these people and this town though, they have stolen my heart from everyone  else across the border (sorry not sorry... but of course I still love you mommy!!) I have made some friends that one-day I hope you guys get the pleasure of meeting and I know whoever my future wife is (haha warning to you whoever you are) but she better like Mexico because I’m for sure coming to visit my family here in Linares.
   So yes, the mission has been the best thing to date in my life and I have learned so much. Every day we truly have opportunities to learn so always be ready. I have filled you all in on my life and all the stuff happening in Linares so now it’s your turn to fill me in on your life fammmm.
I hope you all have a fantastic week, hey I miss you all and love you all… know that always please.
Oh, ya side note I hit 200 days in the mission so please have a party for me and if someone could please go get a Slurpee in my honor take a pic and send it to me I would appreciate it haha.  (
Well keep doing everything you need to be doing and put yourself in position to be safe and to have success.
 Plan everything out and ask your Father in Heaven for help. I know you all can do wonderful things and I’m proud of you all.
 Be happy, Stay happy and stay worthy for the guidance of the spirit. I had some of the most spiritual experiences ever this week and I truly do know that each and everyone of us can always have those. You all have talents also use them but first find them.
Thanks for everything. Love you all!!!
Love Elder Davis
PS.... Like seriously though have a wonderful week and always smile, heaven is cheering you on and backing you up, there is no way you guys can lose if you really try your best and someone go get a Slurpee in my honor haha!!!! LOTS OF LOVE

28th week recap

I Have  a Fan club in Linares
Well here I am again at my good old friend the computer. Well this week was crazy. Surprise meeting lots of time on the bus and then just random storms and random people yelling at us haha.
Well to start off thanks for all your love and support. You guys are honestly the best and I have truly felt all your love and prayers for me throughout my journey so far. It has been hard sometime not now but in the beginning, I did have some nights and mornings where I wanted to give up.   I thought I would never be able to do this but I kept pushing. The thing that helped me the most was feeling all your guys love and getting emails THANKS A TON!!!
  Ahhhh first something funny that happened this week is while on the way back from the bus station we ran into some fans I guess ahaha. So, we are the only people from the United States out here in Linares so it’s easy for everyone to tell it’s us because we are kind of white haha. A first on my mission is that while riding our bikes we turned a corner and there on the side of the road was a little group of people.  We kept riding minding our own business because we had a cita (appointment) to go to so we couldn’t stop and talk to them. We kept going and all of a sudden one of the people turned around and she screams at the top of her lungs the Americans AHHHHHhhhhhh and they all pulled their phones out and started to take pictures of us hahaha. Well it was really funny and once we turned the next corner we stopped and had a good laugh because we couldn’t believe what had just happened.
 Also, this week it rained a ton, yesterday we were out in the middle of the town when it started and we were headed to a meeting about the time it started pouring. So, we got stuck in a thunder storm in Centro (Center) and had to wait it out. While waiting, Elder Snow and I ran out into the street and the storm which dumped so much water the streets were flooded to help some people pull these giant inflatables that were being taken down the street by the water.
Fun times on the mission fun times haha.
    The work this week was ok we just faced a lot of opposition that made it a little tough on us. I have truly learned that before we achieve good thing or receive blessing we must go through trails and opposition because there are 2 sides to everything. I know that sometimes it can get really hard and sometimes it doesn’t come easy but that is when we need to put our heads down pray and just receive the help from the Savior.
 We were able to do some good contacting this week but it seemed that a lot of people didn’t want to listen to us or they were just all too busy. We kept smiling and found some awesome people who have that special desire to learn and listen. I know that it takes patience to listen to us and especially, haha because I don’t speak Spanish perfect. Sometimes it’s just really funny because I don’t understand them and they don’t understand me haha.
   The truth though is that the work here is truly amazing and the truth is that it’s all true. I love my time here and I do love this gospel with all my heart. It has been the greatest blessing in my life. It has gotten me through hard times and has helped me receive answers to some of the biggest questions I have ever had. I bear my testimony of the truthfulness of it all. It is filled with love and help. I don’t want you to only believe my word though. That’s what we always tell everyone here. Ask god about it! He is there for you and he knows all. He knows all and he loves you. You all have a Father in Heaven and I invite all you this week to pray to him and ask him a question because in love he will answer you. I love all you guys a ton.
Have a great amazing week and keep pushing through all things.
 Pray and read the scriptures and go to church they all help.... I promise!
 Love Elder Davis
