Week 79.............The Family just keeps getting bigger!

Good After noon everyone!!!! I hope all is well out there where ever you guys are reading this and that all is well! I love you all WOOOOOO!!!

Well ok I will explain the title first hahaha. So this week I welcomed in my third son into the mission woooooo!!!! Meaning that for the 3rd time I have the privilege to train! So his name is Elder Cruz and he is from Hidalgo Mexico. He is 19 years old and ya we get along really good so it has been a blast the last couple days getting to know him and everything.
We are also in a brand new area and it has been a new adventure getting to know another new area. The area is probably also the biggest I have ever worked in but it is a great ward that we have the opportunity to be in. To explain the ward a little I will just let you guys know what our food appointment where this last week.

**Tuesday: We ate with a ex Stake President and that was fun
**Wednesday: We ate with an Ex Mission President who right now is serving in the Presidency of the stake.
**Thursday: We ate with the area 70 and his family!
**Friday: Was a great yummy food with a convert
**Saturday: Another Ex Mission President.
**Sunday: Elder Trevino the area 70 and his family again.

So I am super excited because the ward is full of experience mixed with new people learning the gospel and it is awesome! Well this week was a blast and I love all of my time out here what a blessing it is!

I hope you all have an awesome week and all goes well! I am super excited for this coming Saturday because Elder Bednar is coming to visit us and what a blessing that will be for all of us! That means though that we as missionaries need to prepare ourselves to receive answers from the Holy Ghost.

I also want to invite all of you to prepare yourself to receive the prompting of the Holy Ghost this week!
In 1 Nephi 10:19--- It tells us that if we are diligent as we look the mysteries of God will become know unto us by the Holy Ghost. I testify of that and know it is true. Prepare yourself and do what you know you all have to do and then you will start receiving the answers you are looking for!
I love you all and hope you all have a great week!

Love your friend

Elder Davis!

Week 78.......Changes are great!!!!

Well hello everyone!!! I love you all, I hope you all know that by now because I have like for 18 months been saying that to you all now and I will continue to do it because it is true!!!

Ok but sadly I don't have a ton of time today, so this will be a short one! OK so here it is!

       1.      We got changes yesterday and I am get changed woooooo! My new area will be called   Valle Alto and it is the area of the Temple so yes, I can say I have the Temple in my area which makes me so happy.


2.      Another add on to changes is that I am going to go into another white wash and that means my companion and I will both be new to the area.


3.      Then it gets happier I AM GOING TO TRAIN AGAIN WOOOO!!!! I am super excited that for another 2 changes in a row I will get to train another new missionary. Also, I am going to be able to be a District Leader, I can’t wait to help out and serve with all I got here in this new area and new everything.


4.      With me becoming a trainer again that means I have officially finished the training of Elder Samaniego and I will truly miss him. He is a great Elder and I know he is a better Elder then me haha. I learned a lot from training him and that is what I am so thankful for.


5.      The next biggest news is that Elder Bednar is coming to speak to us the 1st of September!!!! I am super excited for that and it will be so amazing to be able to be in the same room as an apostle of the Lord.
 Well that is all I got this week. We did play some basketball today so that was a good way to end our last day together here. I am so thankful for our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ I know he lives. He shed blood from every pore for all of us and because of his Sacrifice we can change, we can get back on the covenant path, we can become more like him.

  I also know that we must do our part now because our Father in Heaven and our Savior have done theirs and are continuing to do what they need to do. So, I want to invite all to do their part this week to complete the purpose of our Father in Heaven which is to bring to pass the gift of Eternal life for all his beloved children.

 Keep pushing forward through all things. You guys are all so strong. You can do all things I know you can. I love you all!

 Love Your Friend Elder Davis

Week 77..................77 Weeks in Mexico and I love it!

 Let me see here, let me see here... Ahhh ok ok so first off HELLO everyone!!! I love you all and you all are all amazing so keep it up!

Ok so I don't really know what happened this week because I think this week was legit the fastest week ever in my life. That scares me also because it seems like everything is moving faster in this beautiful world! So, I'm going to fill you all in on what I do remember! 

 SO, to begin the week we had Interviews on Tuesday! It was the first time I have had Interview with Presidente Maucotel and it was amazing. He is such a great man and I love him so much. Also, Hermana Maucotel is amazing awesome, and I know they are truly called by our Father in Heaven to be presiding over us here in the mission Monterrey Oeste! I am truly blessed to be learning under there loving care now just like I did with the President and Sister McArthur.

So that was the highlight early in the week and the other thing that happened early on this week was that my companion got sick :(. It finally got to him this Mexican food and everything, so he was not feeling too hot for a couple days this week with Stomach problems and stuff like that. I personal think that it was from some reheated meat that we ate this week with a bunch of flies that were landing on it before we ate it. I did think that the meat tasted good though so hmmm we will never know. The good thing though is that he is healthy once again and Happy so that makes me happy.

 Ok ok the other things I remember is that I got a package this week wooooo!!!! Thank you, Mom and Grandma and Dad, for that it was perfect, and I loved it! I sadly won’t be able to get to use all the flower ties I got but I love them all! The good thing though is that mom you will be able to see me in person the first time I will use them!

Also the 4 of us missionaries that live together received some meat from a family in the ward so on Wednesday night we had a little BBQ night which was super fun and good! Something else that happened is that we got bunk beds and I love them and It makes me feel like a young kid again begging to be able to sleep up on the top bunk. Don't worry mom I haven't fallen yet so I'm 100% safe, but I won’t be surprised if one night I do fall while I am trying to get down in the middle of the night to do something. Hmmmm then the last thing I can remember is that we had Stake Conference yesterday! It was awesome and oh ya Elder Brady, Elder Samaniego, Elder Kirkman and I sang In the Stake Choir!!! HAha it was a blast to sing and we did have permission from Presidente Maucotel so everything was perfect. 

 In the conference they talked a lot about Ministering, so I want to invite all you guys to do just that GO OUT and MINISTER to someone in need. It can just be a simple conversation with someone that can help them feel the love they need to keep going. Also, always remember to listen because that is also a very important part of all things. Listen to others this week and also listen closely to the whisperings of the spirit because I promise you that you will find answers you are looking for.

 I love you all. I know God and our Savior love you all. I know they Live and I know without a doubt they both want the very best for us. We just have to do our part and do all we can to put our lives in harmony with the teachings of the lord. I know you all can do it! Pray for help! Have an amazing week Everyone!!!

 Love your friend Elder Davis!

Week 76..........ReEnergized

Hello Family and Friends!!!

 I pray all is well and that all is good where this letter might find you! I love you all and that will never change!

SO, This week was a hot and fun one and I have never been so happy in my life, so nothing could be better with me!

 OK so this week on Tuesday we had Zone Conference and it was amazing. It was really the first time I got to hear from President Maucotel and it was so special. I love him, and I know he is the President this Mission needed at this time. He did change somethings up from what we had been doing but changes are good, and I know without a doubt that the changed we saw where from Our Father in Heaven. We can’t use backpacks, Flower ties, Cameras outside of p-day, and other things like that but that isn't bad at all. I am so excited for this new beginning to say because it gives me a chance to become a better missionary then I have been. I am so thankful for that because I know we all can get better and change just a few little things to get ourselves more on the convent path. We are so blessed to have that opportunity everyday honestly and it something we shouldn't take lightly. 

 Other things we did this week was work wooooo!!! I love the Work I am blessed to do it every day. getting to know so many new people and Inviting them to follow our Savior is life changing. Seeing people so willing to change also has blessed my life so much. I know this is truly the work of the lord in these times. We did have our Zone activity today which as a fun time. We just had like a sports day playing some basketball and football(soccer). It was a fun time and I always love the chance to play basketball so that makes me happy. We also had a little Family Home evening that we put on as missionaries for the recent converts and investigators who don't have the opportunity to have one themselves. It was so much fun, and I want to invite everyone to have a family Home evening. Just try it if you haven't done one in a while, I can promise you it will bring more Love and piece into your home and bless every member of your family!

 We have Interviews with President Tomorrow so I'm looking forward to talk to him and to get to know him better.

 I love my mission and I am so blessed to be here today In Mexico. I know Our Savior lives and I know he Bled from every pour for each and every one of us. We are so lucky to have an older brother like him and a Father in Heaven. I invited you all also to follow the example of Our Savior this week in all things! I know and promise that if we try it will change our lives!

I love you all!!!! Have a amazing happy week!!! 

 Love Your Friend Elder Davis!
