ReCap 39 week

 Wednesday for P-day weird
 Hello Family and friends!!!
 Well I’m still alive and everything is going good or actually great and amazing. So ya I didn’t write Monday and also didn’t have P-day (preparation day) on Monday this week because we went to the temple today! That was an amazing experience and it was such a beautiful day all around. So ya I guess I have a lot to fill you guys in on because it has been over a week now since I last wrote. Here I go let’s see if I can remember everything haha.
  Ok ok so let’s start off in last week. Last week was pretty crazy and filled with a lot of things that took us away from our area so that was a bummer. We had Zone Conference last Tuesday which like always is way awesome. The zone conferences always help us refocus and gives us new ideas to use in our areas and all that.
 So, this Zone conference they really focused on the Book of Mormon which over the last couple months has been talked a lot throughout the church. That is because it truly is so important to our lives. It will keep us growing and going in the right direction. I promise you all that if you read it every day with a prayer you will receive blessing and answers that you are looking for.
Well from that conference my companion and I now have decided to carry The Book of Mormon in our hands everyday all day and it has truly become a part of us. It has blessed my life and it will bless yours to read it.
 Well hmmm other things throughout the week is that Elder Bradley had another check up on his nose and all is still ok with that, so he got the ok to exercise woooo. That means we have started going pretty hard with that. We go running morning and night and it really has been fun and I think I’m starting to enjoy running hahaha. It was kind of tough at first because I haven’t full on ran in days like over 5 months so there was some rust but now it’s all good.
We also had to go to the offices this week for Elder Bradley because he completed a year here coming up this week.  He had to renew his green card, so he could be legal to live here again. Oh, ya the news about that is we got called today and everything went through, but we have to travel back to the offices tomorrow for him to sign some papers.
 Also last week we had another Market contacting activity in the zone and that was awesome. There were also some pretty sweet things in the market so I after it was over I ended up buying some sweet fake Nike shirts hahaha for like 100 pesos for 2 of them so that made me happy.
Then to end the week off on Saturday and Sunday we had Stake conference here. It was awesome to be a part of and get to listen to all the talks here. The also talked a lot about the Book of Mormon surprise surprise and also how we truly do have our Savior with us every single day and every moment and that he loves us so.
 Ahh ya then to End the week we were able to watch the face to face with Elder Oaks and Elder Ballard, that was probably one of the coolest things I have ever watched. It was amazing, and I invite all you to go watch it because it truly answered so many questions just about everything. It also shows that the Church leaders are regular Humans. Btw Elder Oaks is super funny, and I did not know that before.
Oh, and we had like 4 zones from the mission together in one church building with the young adults. So, I came up with the idea to see if we could watch it in English just to understand it close to 100 percent. So, it got oked and then about 14 other American missionaries and I went and squeezed into a tiny little room to watch it in English hahaha that was sweet.
 Well I feel like this week will fly by because it is already Wednesday so ya I will talk to you guys in like 5 days. Oh, Thanks Giving is this week also haha. They don’t celebrate it here, but it will be celebrated in my heart. I love this gospel. I love the opportunity I have to serve people every day,
 This mission has changed my life and I will forever be thankful to my Father in Heaven for this opportunity because it’s amazing. I’m also so thankful for all of you guys. You light my world with light each and every one of you. You are all so special to me and are all blessings from God. You all are his children also. You have a Father in Heaven and you are never alone.
 I love you all and miss you all. I would love to see and be with you, but I have work to do here where our Father in Heaven needs me right now. If later on he needs me somewhere else I will go and do what he asks without a question. If that puts me back into your lives in person I will be there. I hope to be a missionary for life and forever and do the things of the Lord because it brings true happiness.
Have a happy holiday and may your week be blessed with happiness and light. Always be thankful for all that you have and be thankful for the life you have been given and the people you have.
Always smile life is just a blessing!
Love Elder Davis

Week 38 ReCap

Back to work!!!!
What Is good my favorite people in the world!!!!
Life is great, and Mexico is just as amazing. What a week what a week but to be honest can’t really remember all of it so here it is!
Ok ok so this week we ended the time in the house finally. Haha it was all good being stuck up in there, but it is nowhere compared how it is out in the field talking and being with the people, talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
So, on Thursday we finished Elder Bradley’s week of recovery then it was off and running to try to catch up for the time we have missed. We were able to get a lot of time in looking for people who truly want to listen to this message of Happiness and the plan that our Father in Heaven has for us.
So, it was a good time back out in the Mexican freezing cold weather! Oh, ya to fill you all in on the weather here it is cold, colder then I thought it would get but I think we are so used to super-hot weather that we are weak now to like 70 degrees haha. So ya it was just great to get back out and work this week. We do have appointments to still go to for Elder Bradley, but we are almost all the way done.

Oh, ya also this week I was able to take part in a Zone activity that we did in a market to find new and more people to teach!
Ok so zone activity thing was wild. So, we did it on a Friday and in a big market, so it was tons of fun also. So, what we did was set up some tables and we made some signs that said Meet the Mormons but in Spanish of course. We started and just contacted everyone that walked by us and just talked to everyone we could about the church. It was so much fun, and an awesome experience and we found like 35 people in 2 hrs. with the whole zone working.

Oh, totally took pictures with Santa Clause at the market which made my day haha. Not really sure why he was out like 45 days before Christmas but it’s all good.

Well that’s all I remember from this week, but I will remember extra hard for next week. We should have an awesome week this week coming up though because it will finally be the first full week we have working. Also, we have Zone Conference tomorrow which is always amazing so looking forward to that.

I love you all and you guys all amazing. Keep pushing every day. Love life because every day is a blessing. Always always remember also that we truly need our Savior in our lives every day. Every day we can learn, every day we can grow.
Keep looking up because you all have a Father in Heaven who loves you and supports you. He truly is always there looking down on you all, Watching over you!

Love Elder Davis

Week 37 ReCap

Week 37 ReCap

Week in the Crib aka week in the house
Hello everyone!!! So, another week down of life and you guys are all doing amazing I’m so proud of you all… keep going! Always look up because we all have our Father in Heaven above us.

Well so yep this week has been a different one from the past couple weeks and that is because I was in the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights and then in my house the rest of the week. The reason I was at the hospital is because Elder Bradly my new companion had surgery Tuesday. So, Tuesday we had to go to the hospital and get all checked in at about 3 and then he went into surgery at about 5.
During his surgery I was in the waiting room for like 2 hrs. just sitting there studying and reading, so that was super exciting. After the 2 hrs. I got to go into our room and then Elder Bradly got wheeled in about 25 mins after.
Everything went good with his surgery and he’s all better now. We did stay an extra day because he was in a lot of pain, so his doctor wanted him stay to get checked on by the real nurses. Thursday, we got checked out and we headed home to just relaxed. He needs to be inside resting for 7 days and today we are on day 5 so we are almost there.

I did have the opportunity to get outside and work though this week on some divisions. So, I had division Friday, Saturday morning then also on Sunday afternoon for a couple hours with my district leader, Elder Sandrigo from Argentina. He is a champion, a funny story about him and I is that we have been in the same zones my whole mission. He was one of the first missionaries I had meet, and we are still in the same area, so it was super fun to work with him. He was moved out to this zone the same time I did.
We had a lot of success together on Friday in his area, we went on divisions inside divisions which was crazy, I worked with the Mission leader of his ward. Ya but then I came and worked in my new area the other times. We were able to find 15 new people to teach here and get the work started in this area.

This area has been down lately in the work that has been done here. They haven’t had a baptism here for about 8 months now so I’m here to try and change that around. I had a good talk with Elder Bradley, and we are on the same page now. This upcoming week when we can get out and work we are going to give it everything we have.
So more about my new companion. He has about a year out in his mission. He is 19 years old and he is from Utah. We get along really well, it’s been different having another American companion. So now in my mission I have had 2 Latinos and 2 Americans. His Spanish is super good and mine is getting there so he should be able to help me out a lot.

Well that’s all my loved ones. This week stay positive through everything please and always remember you are so important.
Keep your standards high and never lower them for anything. you all deserve the world.
Love you all a ton.

Love Elder Davis
