Luke's Letter Dated May 26, 2014

So we had transfers this week. I am now in a new ward called Arco Iris (Rainbow in spanish) I think it's in the city Merlo. But I could be wrong! haha. 

My companion is Elder Jimenez from Ciudad Jaurez mexico. That's like right on the border by El Paso Texas. He's awesome and we have a lot of fun together! 

The ward that im in is on fire! My companion had a baptism a week before I got here. And the other companionship here just had 3 this last weekend. I'm so excited to be here! 

We are working with a few families right now, all of them are pretty sweet. A few of them have to quit drinking and smoking and drugs and all that, and one of the famlies is part of the religion umbanda. It's like a devil worship religion. But we're working our best with them! It's always amazing to see the gospel change the lives of the persons! 

I love you all! 

Have a good week and remember to say your prayers!! (:

Luke's Letter Dated May 19, 2014

Hola a todos!

This week was super quick. But we've seen a lot of miracles! 

We have been working a lot with a couple investigators that we have. One guy named Leonardo has been through a ton! He was living on the street for a little while after his wife kicked him out and he got fired from his job. He moved to our area and got a job and a house. He now lives in a little one room wood shack. It's about half the size of one of those tuff sheds. He doesn't get down about his situation ever! He recognizes that all of that can be a blessing. He is going to get baptized in the next few weeks here.

Seeing the gospel change other people's lives makes me realize how much it changed my life. It seriously turned me around 180 degrees. I'm a much better person now than when I left on the mission! 

I love you all!

Have a great week!

Letter From Luke Dated May 5, 2014

This week went really well! 

To start the week we had a zone meeting Tuesday morning. The mission president came and pretty much told us all that we need to do better.  Then we had interviews with the President and a special training. That all went pretty good. I don't really like doing practices. But It still went pretty good. My interview with president went really well as well. He always does a good job of getting me excited for the work. 

The Zone leaders had the brilliant idea that we needed to do planning as a zone. Kinda rough. It was super hard to focus with the whole zone trying to plan in the same room. But it went alright. 

Over these three days we had to travel to Lujàn 3 times. Pretty much we spent a ton of money on busses. From here to Lujàn is like spanish fork to Lehi.

We have an investigator named Ricardo. I have known Ricardo since my first week in this area back in January. He is friends/ boyfriend of a member. We haven't really paid much attention to teaching him for a long time because we knew that he was with this member and couldn't get married for paperwork issues. Well anyways this week he called us and said I want to get baptized. We got talking to him and it turns out that he broke up with his girlfriend and is quitting smoking so he can be baptized. He came to church on sunday by himself. When I saw him I saw such a light in his eyes. It was amazing. He is changing his life like crazy. 

I never stop being amazed by the way that the gospel of Jesus Christ can change the lives of people.

I love this work!!
Love you all!!

Have a great week!
