Week 70.....It’s raining its pouring for the first time in forever!

How is life my lovely people that I love so much!!!!

Today I am happy and thankfully and that feeling was spread throughout everyday this last week. This week was just a little bit wild in the weather department here and that just makes me laugh. We had lots of rain one day and then the next I don't think I could keep water in my body because I was sweating so much haha. It was a great happy week though and I'm so happy to be here where I am!

Ok ok so I’m going to throw down the top 10 off the week because I feel it’s more exciting that way.

1. This last Thursday it just rained and rained and rained and then rained some more. It was the first really good rain we have had here in Monterrey the whole entire year so that was much needed. Oh, boyyy and the best and most funny part about it was that the streets legit became rivers because the drain system is a little off here. With the streets becoming rivers that meant that we got destroyed by passing cars a lot and all we could do was laugh and have a good time. We did have a very spiritual experience though while contacting in the rain. So long story short is that we were having no success at all at first and so I felt that we needed to pray. So, my Companion and I offered a prayer in the middle of a street while it was raining asking for help and guidance to someone who was willing to listen to us. After the prayer we felt good and started contacting. The first houses after the pray brought nothing but that is when I heard a prompting that our hard work would pay off soon if we just kept going. Then at the very last house of the street we found who we need to find. Her name is Veronica and as we contacted her the words she shared with us where the answer to our prayer. It was so amazing and just testifies to me how prayer works if we are humble and sincere it truly works.

2. The next day after it rained it was super-hot and everything was back to normal haha.

3. Alexa received the Holy Ghost yesterday and is doing great! She always has a smile on her face now when we see her and she tells us she feels so much happier!

4. One day this week we got a ride from some guy In a BMW for sure the nicest car I had ridden in my whole mission.

5. Yesterday we got a ride to our food appointment by a member in his Super nice Audi making that the nicest car I have ridden in In Mexico haha!

6. I ate Nachos today and they were great.

7. We had our zone activity today and it was tons of fun!!!

8. Elder Kirkman, Elder Brady, Elder Samaniego and I bought Mexican football jerseys!!!

9. Tomorrow we have our last Zone Conference with President McArthur

10. I felt all your guys love and support throughout my week which made my week amazing! Thank you.

Well that is just 10 of hundreds of things that happened this week. I know all those things have made me a better person and will continue to help me grow also. I love this opportunity and privilege I have to learn and grow.
This week I want to challenge you guys to be friends with everyone. Care about everyone also and remember they are your brother and sisters. Learn people’s names that you work with and might not know. Talk to them and help them. Serve others and love it as you do it. May the Lord watch over you all this week. Don't forget to read your Scriptures and pray because those are 2 keys for success.

I love you all. I know my Savior lives and gave all he had to make our lives better. Kia Kaha my lovely friends. (Kia Kaha means forever strong or stay strong one of the 2 btw).
You all make me smile never forget it!!!!

Love your Friend Elder Davis!

Week 69 Recap.......Hey Dad! Happy Fathers day!


Also, a big happy Father’s Day to all of the other Dads out there you guys are all doing work so keep it up! Thanks for all your examples also!

Ok ok here we go real quick. So, this week was a good one. We had lots of things go down outside of our area so that kinda meant we didn't get much time to work in Santiago. That was a bummer, but we still had a great time and we had a BAPTISM to end the week! WOOOOO!

  So, this week like i already said was filled with other things we had to do. We had meetings with the Stake President of the stake we work in Tuesday and Wednesday and that took up pretty much the whole night of both those days. Also, with the situation we are in with no house in Santiago we weren't even able to really get out to Santiago. I'm pretty sure we only where able to go for like 1 hr on Wednesday. It’s OK though because the meetings went great and we got good input form the Bishops and Stake President and we all got on the same page. We are going to maybe have so more meetings coming up to finalize everything but its looking great!

Ok then on Friday we had "Return to MTC" and that was like a full day thing. The "Return to MTC" is something they have for the new missionaries and the missionaries that are training to just check in on how everything is going. It went really well also and i was super proud of Elder Samaniego because he works hard, and we were able to complete all the practices. We had a great time and it was a blast to see a bunch of friends who also came.


 Now to the best part of the week! The baptism! It went amazing and I just am so happy thinking about it. It was such a blessing to us to get to know Alexa (the girl who was Baptized). She is awesome, and it was so cool to teach her and watch her grow. I think that is my favorite part of this experience teaching these amazing people, just to see them with such a desire to learn and change. They all touch my heart. They are all so special to me and i know without a doubt they are so special to Our Father in Heaven.

   Well we ended on the best note i could think to end on for this last week. It was a week that we worked hard and had fun, so I feel great.

I love this opportunity i have to go out every day and represent my Savior. I know though it is not just me doing that. I hope you all remember always that every single one of you is a Representative of Jesus Christ. Make sure you are on the right path also so that you can be a worthy Representative. I know our Father in Heaven loves his children so much so that means he love every single one of you a ton, more then you know. I know my Savior lives also and I love him.

I love you all! Have a very very great week! Keep pushing and moving forward. I know you guys can do everything!

Love your friend Elder Davis!
