NOVEMBER 3, 2014

This week wasn't as super exciting as before. We just did a lot of walking, talking, teaching, preaching, and working like missionaries do.

Last P- Day (Preparation Day), we played some volleyball games.  And I talked to more Gringos.

This is Last P-day with my Friend Elder Jarvis. We were in the trunk area of a taxi.

Every two or three days, we go to visit a sick member of the church.  His name is Fabio Suarez.  He has been sick with Embolia, which is a virus that causes Paralysis. When we first visited him in my first cambio (exchange), Fabio could barely move.  But know that with help He can now walk. It is a blessing from God.

We rescued the Familia Alpire. ¡They are now Miembros Activos!  And Hermano Alex shared his testimony yesterday. He said he was grateful for all the Elders, the Ward, and what his new family have done for him. ¡ESTOY TAN ANIMAAAAAAAAADO! (I'm so animated/happy.)

Oh!  And yesterday we were working.   A Woman asked us to buy beer for her. We didn't but we said we had something better than Beer. Then we gave her a Word of Wisdom Pamphlet.  We are funny. JAJAJAJAJAJAJAAJAJJAJAJAJA (Ha Ha Ha)

TWENTY lessions this week.  People have been lying to us a lot for the past couple of days, and I don´t like it. But what can you do.

Scripture for the Week: 

3 Nephi 5:13

Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life.

I would like to thank my older brother, Lonnie, for showing me this scripture.  It is our job as missionaries and members to be real disciples of Christ.  But the question is:  "What are we doing to prepare to meet God?"  I would like to get some answers to this question from all of you.

 Please email me back at

Have a good week everyone!

A little additional fun information from Jon's Email home today:

This is my Scripture case. Its made of Alligator, Ostrich, Iguana and Cow.  Its pretty cool. (It was made by a local guy that Jon's talked about in a previous post.) 

It does say Mission of Miracles. That's the ´´Official´´ Name of the Mission, Because they Have The North Mission, and Mission of Miracles.

We walked everywhere this week. We walk everywhere everyday.  But tomorrow we are going to have a Mission Conference in the Canoto Stake Center. That is the Stake in the First Ring of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Here´s a picture of the Chapel.

                                Canoto Stake Center

I asked Jonathan to describe his typical day.

My Normal day...
There really isn't any normal day in this Mission mom.
But my Usual Schedule is this.  We wake up, and then we pray as Companionship.  After that, Personal Prayers. Then we get ready for the day.  At 8, we pray and have personal study.  At 9 we have Companionship study and Plan for the Day. At 10, we study Idioma, or Language. 11, 1st 12v weeks.

And from then on, we go to our Pensionista, and then we go to work. We usually have 7 or 8 appointments everyday.  But they fall through a lot.

Connor has almost got more converts that I do.
I have Hermana Hortencia Choque, and the Family Alpire. We rescued the Alpires, and they are a  family of 5.

So I say I have 6 converts.

I asked Jonathan to tell me about where he is emailing me from and how much does it cost to use the computer and the Internet.

I´m in a Internet cafe and to use the computer for an hour and a half  it costs me 4 bolivianos, or 50 cents  . 

And tell Connor that People in Bolivia are Addicted to Warcraft 3 and League of Legends, and Dota.  They Have different Servers for Different Countries.  But I thought it was funny.  And most people go to the Internet Cafe to play. If you have Internet at your house here, You are pretty well off.

Hey.  I have to go.  Love you mom.  Talk to you in a week!
