"Shaggy vs. Focus" Hna Gonzalez

Hey everyone!

Well, the time finally came. This is my last Tuesday writing home as a missionary. It is a weird feeling to know that my mission has came to an end. I honestly didn't think it would fly by too fast. I love this work. It has been the greatest time sharing the gospel with the people of Guatemala for these past 18 months. I love Guatemala.

I know that this is His church and that I had the greatest opportunity to represent Him and His church for at this time. I know that people can change. I know that the gospel is for everyone. I love the gospel. I love that I had this time to share it and help others love it too. I know that I had the eternities to prepare for this time. I will have the eternities to remember my mission. But I only had 18 months to live it. If you are going on a mission or are on your mission, enjoy it but in the Lord's way not in your way.

Ya casí

Hey everyone!

I just want everyone to know how much I love this gospel and this time that I have had to serve the Lord and His people here in Guatemala. I am super happy!

"Broken bows litter the landscapes of our lives, representing yesterday's frustrations. These were real enough at the moment. Dotting the same landscape, however, are many more reminders of blessings, than of discarded broken bows. May we have the eyes to see that which an outisde auditor would surely see as he counts our blessings."

Remember to look for the miracles every day!

17 months in the mission

Hey everyone!

I am happy here working in San Lucas! The Lord is so merciful with us. We have been able to see quite a few miracles this week! Hermanita Ana got baptized this past Sunday! We are working with some really cool investigators and are hoping to see progress real soon.

Stay tuned!

Hey everyone!

Well, these past few weeks have been crazy, full of divisions and conferences. I am in my last transfer... My companion, Hna Rotellini, finished her mission and today she flew back to the Dominican Republic. I have a new companion, Hna Gonzalez. We are in San Lucas Toliman. She is the sweetest thing. She will be my last companion #12. She is from Nicaragua and has 15 months in the field. We are working hard and finding miracles. I love my mountains so much. My companion has never been to the mountains, so I am teaching her how to work here. We had a devotional with Elder Zeballos, which was awesome. I will write more about it later.

I can't talk too much about the Volcano erruptions. I am safe though. Pray for Guatemala please (:

Les amo!!

A week full of miracles

Hey everyone!

I am a very happy missionary! This week was amazing. The Spirit was felt so strong during small and big things all week. The past weekend Sololá became a Stake. The Lord's work is hastening and I am glad I had/have the opportunity to participate in it. I don't think I saw anyone without a smile that day. I also got to see members from El Mirador, Sololá. Reunions are my absolute favorite. Hno Raul got baptized this past Friday. He has changed for the better and is excited for his new adventure living the gospel. After his baptism, he testified about how happy he was to have this change and the support the members gave him. People can change if we love them enough so they will want to change. We also had divisions with the Hermanas from El Mirador. I stayed here in San Lucas, but Hna Maldonado, my companion before, came so that was fun. I loved a part of the conference when Elder Pineda said that creating this Stake would diminish the power of Satan (AKA more reactivation, retention and baptisms.) Pte Cluff already has the goal of dividing it into 2 stakes. We have to have high goals (:

I love you all!
