Judgment Day?

On Monday Elder Dopp and I were driving around and we saw this. I am amazed at how many people believe that the world is really ending within a week. People come up to us all the time and ask us if it's really ending May 21. Now I don't know when everything's ending, but I do know that nobody know except God himself. I am so thankful for a living prophet for our modern times that will lead and guide us. I know that we have absolutely no reason to fear if we are doing the right things.
I personally like how there's a sign for a music festival for June 4th right in front of it.

Baptismal service and service project

Not last Saturday but the one before, we had a service project with our branch. Sad to say, but this picture only show the aftermath, the ice cream and swings, but I really did work. Even worse, my foot was soaked the whole time because I spilled a mop bucket on me before we even got started. Nonetheless, it was a really good experience. Our ward helped clean up a little day camp for handicapped people.  Just being able to do some service along side of friends brought a feeling of unity. The served and the server feel uplifted. A prophet has said, "...when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17

Constantino got baptized! The baptismal service went well and he is excited to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

A trip to Philadelphia

At the Liberty bell, there were two families that came up to us and told us that they were members too.

On the way home, we got a little lost. Luckily, everyone in the car had some patience as we backtracked to head back to good old Vineland.

No hay dias normales

We found some people that probably haven't been home in a while.
Elder Dopp still wanted to go see if there was any hope.

We came home for lunch.
Green eggs and ham!

Taco Pizza?
A veces siento como yo estuviera en Mexico. Es una bendicion a conocer esta gente que son tan humilde. Este comida se llama Claiyuda y solo se encuentra en Oaxaca Mexico. Me encanta las cultura Mexicana.

Yo aprendi algo muy poderoso la semana pasado que no voy a olvidar. Este dia, yo estaba un poco triste. Mi trabajo no salia bien. Decidimos a pasar por una familia que no hemos visto en mucho tiempo. En esta casa vive 7 adultos y 10 hijos. Solo estaba dos padres, pero todos los ninos estaban alli. Al entrar, todos los ninos nos rodeaban y querian hablarnos. Durante todo nuestro tiempo alli, los ninos estaban sonriendo a nosotros. Esto me hizo sonreir y reir tambien. Cuando sali de esta casa, yo me di cuenta de que yo sentia muy feliz... a causa de los ninos. Yo sentia el amor de ellos y tambien el amor de Dios por medio de ellos. En este momento yo recorde las ensenanzas de Jesus, que necesitamos llegar a ser como hijos pequenitos. Hora endiendo porque. Yo quiero ser mas amoroso como ellos. Me encanta aprender de los ninos.

I learned a powerful lesson last week that I will always remember. On this day, things weren't going so well. I was a little down because of it. We decided to go visit a family that we hadn't seen in a while. There are 7 adults and 10 kids that live in this house. There were only two of the adults there, but all of the kids. Right when we walked in, all the kids surrounded us smiling and laughing and wanting to talk to us. I felt like Santa Clause, but they weren't happy about any toys, just that we came. There were like that the whole time we were there. When we left, I couldn't stop smiling myself. I really felt the love that they had for us and I also felt God's love through them. I thought of the Lord's teaching that we need to become as little children. That day I learned why. You don't need to do anything to deserve their love, they just love you, as you are. They can really demonstrate what love really means. They made my day not just bareable, but really enjoyable.

Intro... So It Begins

This is me. For the most part, I was a normal kid. Then, I decided to be a missionary for my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I wanted to share with others my tesimony of Jesus Christ and how we can find lasting happiness. What I hope to share is the experiences that I have, and the things that I learn from these experiences. This blog may also me called "Leaning Life's Lessons."
