Week 97.......The blessed year of 2018!

Happy New Year my dear and beloved family and friends!

I hope this email finds all of you happy and ready to take on another opportunity of a great new year.

I am excited to see what is to come my way in 2019 and I hope that I can continue to be a servant for my Savior and Redeemer and my Father In Heaven. I also hope that you all can enjoy the best year of your lives and that all will be well!
Remember to be safe today and always remember who you guys are as sons and daughter of God!

Well looking back today on the week that has passed I also look back on the year that is coming to a sweet end. I realize that this year... the year of 2018 was the greatest, happiest, hardest, craziest year of my life and I was blessed every single second of it. 2018 will be for now the only full year that I will be able to say that I was a Missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints which is with out a doubt in my mind and heart is the True Church of Jesus Christ. I have learned so much from this year and I will forever be blessed for the privilege I had to be a Missionary.
I also have come to grow closer to my Father In Heaven this last year more then ever before and I pray that I will continue to grow in the coming year of 2019. I am excited to see you all in 2019 and to be able to learn from you all with all that happened in your lives in 2018.

I love Being a missionary and there is nothing greater then this Service! I also hope that we all can set goals to help us become more like our Savior and also to help those in need. Also to set goals to resolve conflicts or doubts that we have in our lives.

I love you all and I know you all are so amazing! You all can do anything you set your heart on this coming year. May this year bring you joy and éxito (Success) is my wish for you all!
Have an amazing start to a new year and be safe!
Love your Friend Elder Davis!

Week 96............!Marry CHRISTmas!

So here we are on this very Special day!
The day that we enjoy time with Family and friends and also a day filled with love and Presents haha!
The most important thing to remember is our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. I love him and I know he loves you all and I pray and hope that on this special day you can feel all his love because we are never alone.

This week was a great week! We had changes and welcomed new missionaries into the Zona, two of which are brand new Missionaries from the States which is awesome! I love talking with the new Missionaries and they are such big example to me because of the Sacrifices they are doing to be here. I love them all and I know god has placed them in my life to teach me something.
This week we also had our Devotional with Presidente which went Great. It was a 2 hour Devotional where we sang Christmas Hymns and listened to Presidente and His wife talk. We also watched some videos and just had a great time. Also at the end they gave us a slice of home made Apple Pie which made me happy and was Delicious!
The rest of the week was filled with little Christmas Miracles as we found a couple new families and new people to teach so we will see how they continue to progress in the coming weeks!

I love my Savior and I know he lives. I know we all are not perfect but with and through the atonement of Jesus Christ we can become better people and better children of our Father that is in Heaven. I know this experience here In Mexico has changed my life forever and I know that I am a new Person. I am a better person then I was before I left and I pray to never go back to who I was before.

We always need the Saviors help and can not do this thing called life without him. He as well as his teachings bring true and everlasting joy. I am so blessed to be able to be here In Mexico on this Christmas Day and I am so blessed to have more time as a Missionary.
I love you All and I hope all your Dreams come true this Christmas and during the coming new year.
Love Your Friend Elder Davis!

Week 95......On to the Final Change..

Family and friends!!!!!!!!!
You are all amazing and special never ever forget that!!! Also never every forget to let your light shine to help and bless all those around you. Never ever forget that you are all Sons and Daughter of a Father In Heaven who loves you so much!

So this week was fun and lots of things happened and lets see if I remember what happened. Also I have 7 weeks left out here In the Place which has stole my heart so its time to give it our all!

So first off I am going to be staying here in Monte Morelos for my last change and for the next 7 weeks. I will have the same Companion Elder Santiago and it is going to be a blast!
We have lots of work to do and it looks like this last change will be awesome! So besides changes that we are having this coming week with people coming and going tomorrow, we are going to have our Christmas Party for our Rama (Branch) Friday so we are just trying to invite everyone we can to that.
We are also going to have a Christmas Devotional with Presidente this coming Friday which will also be fun. It is the time of the season to celebrate but always remember why we Celebrate!

Other things that happened this last week is that I got to work again with other Elders in Intercambios (exchanges) and learn from them! I worked with a good friend Elder Barrientos who is from The City of Mexico and then also Elder Abreu who is from the Dominican Republic (Shout out to Elder Smith!).
I have really enjoyed the opportunity to work with so many Elders this change and this coming change it will be a blast to work once again with the brand new Elders. We also had Interviews with Presidente Maucotel this last week which went great and then had a Elders Quorum activity here which went good!

I love my Mission so much and It has blessed my life in so many ways! I can never ever repay the blessings I have received here and I know my Savior lives and loves us all. I hope you all have an amazing Week and that it all turns out great for the coming holidays.
Have yourselves a early Merry Christmas and let us all remember how much The Savior of the World has done for each and everyone of us.
Because of him we will live forever, Because of him we can become families forever. Because of him we can always be happy and always feel the love of our Father In Heaven. Because of him we truly have everything.
I love you alll!!!!
Have a great Week!
Love your friend Elder Davis!!!

Week 94.......Let your light shine!

Family and friends!!!
What a blessed time of year it truly is in this beautiful month of December. How blessed we truly are... it is amazing! I hope you all can see the light of Christ this Holiday season and that we can all take time to refocus and remember why we celebrate this Christmas season!
Let your light shine forth to bless  the lives of others because we all truly have light within us given to us from our Father In Heaven!
 So real fast this last week was a blast and went by quick and sadly I don't have much time today so I will have to be quick with this email haha.
 1. This week I had a new opportunity come to my mission as I had the opportunity to go to a conference of all the Líderes de Zonas (Zone Leaders). It was a fun and spiritual time and I can truly see Gods love and hand guiding this mission here.
2. Again this week I had the opportunity to have intercambios with other Elders! On Tuesday I worked with Elder Sochfield who is a marine and is from Utah and he is awesome. He has about 4 weeks out in the field and is killing it and it was fun to learn from him and see how much faith he had in the gift of tongs. I also had the opportunity to work with Elder Matamoros who is from Nigeria and is also an amazing Elder. I have been so bless by the opportunity to learn from others and I will always remember the things I have come to learn.
3. It has been cold all week and riding a bike has been a blast and the mud has come to stain a few of my white shirts but the work keeps on keeping on!!!
4. Well the rest of the week we put our shoulders to the wheel and pushed along trying to complete the will of our Savior here in monte Morelos. Tomorrow we have interviews which will be a great time!
 I love you all and hope you all are enjoying this time of year! Reach out to those who are alone and need a pick me up and let them feel your light.
 I pray and hope we may all follow the example of the Savior and can let our light shine to bring light to those who are lost in the dark.
YOU all can change lives with the light you have! Let it out!!! I love you all!
 Love your Friend
         Elder Davis!
