Week 83.....Blessings come always!

Family and Friends you are all amazing and are so special to me!!!

I love you all so much and I know without a doubt in my heart that your Father in Heaven also loves you all so so so much. Keep doing all you can in your lives. If you are passing through hard things keep pushing it will get better there is always hope I testify with all my heart that there truly is always hope.
Please always remember our savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ went through all things we have, will or are going through right now. He knows how each one of you feels. He will help you and is helping you if you look you will find him there with you right now, I promise you that. I love my savior with all my heart I know he lives.

So this week was awesome happy week for me here in the best mission in the world! I was able to participate in a lot of things this week that truly showed me the hand of the lord is always guiding us where we go and what we do. We are all so blessed. Ok so fast I am going to throw out some highlights of the week so you can all be filled in!

1. Ok this week on Tuesday I was able to go out on intercambios with Elder Rosales from Chiapas Mexico! He has 8 months in his mission and is a great missionary and a great friend. I was able to work with him in the center of Monterrey which is his area and that was a ton of fun! I also got to go back to central (their area) Thursday and Saturday this week to do baptismal interviews which was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my life.

2. We had zone conference this week and it was awesome! I also got called on to give a talk and that was fun! I got to take on humility which truly we all need. I can testify we cannot do this alone and that we truly need the help of our savior.

3. Work, work, work! Like every week we got to work this week which is honestly the most rewarding thing there is. I love meeting new people and we had a really good turnout at church this week with our investigators. We are truly seeing so many blessings right now in our area and I love this work so much! AHhh I did eat Ice Cream 3 nights this last week which was a happy thing haha.

Well that is the 3 things that I actually remember haha. It is going by so quick that I do forget sometimes what goes on.

I love the time I have here and I never want it to end. I know it will come to an end though one day so I know I have to do all I can everyday to make all the sacrifices worth it. I hope we can all take advantage of the time we all have to grow closer to our savior. Also I hope you all can remember always that you Father In Heaven has a plan for each one of you and I hope that we can all do all we can to find and understand what he needs us to do!
I love you all and I hope you all have an amazing week!
LOVE your friend Elder Davis!

week 82...............Its raining buckets.

Hey friends and family I am so thankful for all of you and I hope all is well

 Ok so here we are once again and this week went by super fast but was a super fun one! Not a ton happened though so I will get to it! 

 - It is raining a lot here and we got destroyed by the rain once again a couple times this week but it was a fun time.

 - I went on divisions with my good friend Elder Garrido from Cancun Mexico this week because Elder Pierce got a ingrown toenail taken out so we went to help them in their area on Thursday.

 - I got to eat Pizza with ranch dressing for the first time in 18months on Saturday and it made my day. It got better though because for desert the Sister brought out homemade brownies with vanilla Ice Cream and it just reminded me of a meal from the states.

 - This last weekend the 16th of September passed with is the Independence Day for Mexico so we had to be in our houses at 8 on Saturday and Sunday. On Friday though our Stake that we are in had a Independence party that we all got to go to so that was fun.

 - We had our Investigator Carlos who is 87 years old come to church again for the 4th time in a row and now he has a baptism date for the 29th of this month! We are super excited for that!

- I got to play Basketball with my boy Elder Schenk and my boy Elder Aden Joseph Pierce and that was a blast. Shout out to Elder Aden Joseph Pierce who goes home in 2 weeks to the great state of California! Bless up, hit him up. He will be missed. 

 - Today we also had our Zone activity and for that we bought 18 pizzas and I almost ate a pizza by myself but I could not so that was interesting. 

 Well my dear Family and friends that is all that has been happening in my life for the last couple days. The days go by fast and the weeks feel like days. I am so grateful for the time I have had here. I am beyond thankful for my Father in Heaven and My Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to change and to learn from them and about them, what a great opportunity we truly have and we must take advantage NOW.

 I hope all you have an amazing week this week and that you all can truly look at what you have. I invite all of us to be more grateful this week because I know we are truly blessed beyond our understanding. i love you all and I am so thankful for your love and your support. I am thankful for your friendship.

 Have an amazing week

 Love your Friend

Week 81.......It’s coming downnnnn!!!!

 Hey Everyone!!! I hope you are all smiling wherever you are because I know that is what your Father in Heaven wants you to be doing! Also I hope and pray all is well where you are! So this week I am just going to give some quick facts about what has been going on in my life for the last 7 days! Woooo I LOVE MY MISSION!!!! 

 1. This week was a very wet week and the heat has turned now into thunderstorms which truly keeps us on our best game.

 2. With water coming down it means that our shoes get soaked and that is always a fun time. It does keep my feet refreshed and cool from walking a lot so that is a blessing in disguise. REMEMBER always to look for the blessing in all things! There is truly a learning point in everything!

 3. This week went by so quick and we are now going to be starting on our 4 week her and my 4th week with Elder Cruz!

 4. Elder Cruz has grown so quick and I am so proud of him. He is going to be a way better missionary then I am and that makes me happy!

 5. We had a week full of work which was amazing.

 6. We had Interviews with Presidente Maucotel and that is always an amazing time to learn from him one on one. He is an amazing guy and knows so much!

 7. Today we got to go to a Waterfall for our District Activity and it was so much fun! It is called Cola do Cabello and was worth the trip.

 8. I love this time I have here to invite others to come to know OUR Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ!

 Well that is the biggest things from my week but not all. I don't think I have time to write them all down though so I will try my best. I just hope all of you know though that I love My Father in Heaven so much and My Savior Jesus Christ. Without them I would be nothing. Without them we would be nothing.

I testify to you all from my heart that they live and Love us so much. They truly want the best for us and want to help us but we must do OUR part. We must truly look for them and look for their direction they want to give to us. I invite you all to pray and read the Book of Mormon and if you truly read it and pray you will truly come to understand why I love them so much. I know all of you can find answers.

I love all of you and I hope you All have an amazing week filled with only things to make you Smile.

Love your Friend Elder Davis!

Week 80....Now we can count on one hand....5 more Fast Sundays

FAM bam and friends what is goood!!!

 Well honestly I hope all is good because that would just be the best answer but if that is not the answer just keep trying it will get better. So fast today I will fill you all in on my week!

  First off we had an amazing opportunity this last Saturday to listen to Elder Bednar and it was amazing. What he shared with us touched my heart and the spirit of the lord was there with us and it was beautiful. Words can’t really describe what it felt like and how thankful I am for the privilege I had to be here. He talked about lots of things and he made us laugh and also cry. He shared with us that we must come to believe in Christ, that he lives, that he gives us the chance to change and that he gives us all things. Also he shared that the worst thing we can ever come to do is to stop trying. He told us that that is one of the worst mistakes we can make in our lives and he invited us to always always keep trying no matter what.

 I hope all you can always keep trying also because if we keep trying we will come to believe Christ and that will truly change our lives. It is hard but it is possible here in this world.

 PLEASE just keep trying though always always keep trying!

Well let’s see real quick the other things that happen this week is that the weather has changed and now we get rained on so that is a blast and makes the days fun because we never know if it will rain or not. Also I got to go do Intercambios with Elder Matheus in the center of Monterrey! That was a blast and the center is nuts here and there is a ton of people and random people just come up to us and start talking and it’s a lot of fun.

 Elder Cruz is doing great also which makes me happy and he has grown so much. We got to play basketball again today and that also makes me super happy!

 Well I love you all and please always keep trying. You all can do all things if you put your mind to it! Help others also and share the love of our Savior with all. Do not ever forget that we are all children of a loving Father in Heaven and he needs our Help to go find our lost brothers and Sisters. You can all change lives!

 Have an amazing week!

LOVE your friend,  Elder Davis!
