Plan de Zona Amapolas

Dear mom, and Dad, well... im am doing super good!!! i am happy and healthy!! :) things are slowly but surely coming along... Cecilia is going to puebla for a week.. but when she gets back she wants to talk!.. umm sandra and Alessandra are also doing good they went to the temple on wed. and things are going really well! we didnt have a Zone mtg because we had special transfers here in the Zone.. and so we are having it this week o n thursday... and speaking of all the transfers i was talking with president a little bit this week and i asked him about those plans and he said YES. that everything would be fine with those plans!! :))  we also had to go and give service to violetas... because about 2 months ago we had problems with their owner, not wanting to sign the church contract for the house... and so they found a new one and we went to move out and the owner started getting mad at us and we told sorry but they literally werent living there because there was no contract.. so then he goes in the appartment and starts to say that we have to pay for alot of things.. and then we explained to him that thats what the deposit is for... and ya.. but anyways... my comp got a little heated... and it was kind of funny... but i calmed in him down and ya.. now theres no problems...:) we had a good week a missionary just got home wed. and he came with us to visit last night and wants to leave agfain! ha they had a Fhe for his homecomning and while me and my comp were sitting there the relief society pres. just says.. and now we are going to have a talk by Elder Saldana and Elder Weaver.. and we didnt  know.. haha but it was good! the spirit took control.... people were laughing alot while i was talking...;) haha :) thanks so much for the love and support! hope you have a great week! Elder Weaver
Yipee! So glad that travel plans are a go and we are cleared!!! So excited to see ya and your home for the last couple of years!  Special transfers but all stayed the same with you right? How fun to have an rm go with you, why were they laughing while you were speaking?  And what a blessing for sandar and alesandra, so many prayers answered…will you have your zone meeting this week? What kind of service did you do for the Violetas? How about Vicky?
ya we are the same... remember last week i told you that a missionary was going home early..?  haha they were laughing because i was making jokes...;))))) haha ya we are having the zone meeting on thursday.. and we went and helped Violetas move... they changed houses. and while i was putting something down i squated and my pants ripped.. but it was a old pair. and so i walked home with my shirt untucked....;)  Vicky is also doing good we went to see her last night and we met her husband and they consider us their grand children.. ha
Oh yea….Ok, now I get it I thought the two stories were different peoples….do you have pictures of you with Vicky and husband? How about Adair? Feeling the spirit a lot right now in this area, it seems like things are clicking and the work is moving forward….
i like the area alot.!! but if i could just work in my area then i feel like the work would fly and sore!!! haha but being a helper.. i got to help others aswell haha i feel the spirt yes! sorry dont have picks of them yet.. ha 
So glad that you are happy! Do you think you will be zone leader until you leave? With special transfers do you still have regular transfers coming up too?Did you get emails from the boys?Jared T came home last week too, he lost a lot of weight, I haven’t seen him in person but on fb, super skinny, Brayden said he lost 17 pounds in his last area…he is skinny too….you will probably be the big guy when you get home, eating all that pizza…haha! K, so you know that I am going to ask, did you buy shoes? What did you get to do for pday today? Temple visit soon again? Fhe tonight?
maybe ill be a Zone leader, i would like too.. it would be me busy and not die. haha  ya we are having transfers normal aswell.. they are in august. yes i got emails form them. 2 line emails..;) brothers..;) haha no i havnet gotten shoes.............  we were going to go to monte alban but ended up not going... dont have a temple visit soon.. and maybe this week we will have a fhe.. we have alot going on thisweek.
Do you think you will stay in area? How come monte alban a no go? Tell me about your week ahead :) I know that you probably get tired of chatting with me, especially when others are on, I know Marcus is :) tell him hi…haha! I don’t want to seem like a burden or buggy….
no its all good no worries..:) we were going to go with other elders.. but he woke up sick.. so he wanted to change the day till next week! so we are just gonna wait a week! this week tomorrow we are meeting with presidnet junco.. stake president. and he is going to give each of us a map of our areas... this thursday the Zone Meeting  and friday ill be in Violetas.. on splits :)))) 
Very fun week ahead! Maybe since we have the go ahead Ill contact Pres Villanueva, think that’s his name and talk about hotels….is the zone meeting the one that you are incharge of? Do you get to do something fun, or is it a more serious one, training? Do you know who you will be with in Violetas, how long does it take to get there?

Don’t be silly, it will be a birthday package :) big 21! So crazy!! Your growed up way to fast!! Do the members their say or know much about the Utah pioneers? You should tell them gma sheri’s pioneer stories-the howling wolves and snakes….
the memebers dont knwo much... haha if i can remember the whole story ill try and share it with them! :)
I am sure that they would get a big kick out of it and to know of the hard ships through the snow and the answers to prayer… does your ward library have pictures of the seagulls and the handcart company, you could tell about your trek experiences…Pioneer day is next Sunday, we are celebrating it on Monday tho….dad and I are going to ride and then hit the parade and then we are all going tubing down the weber river, jax is bringing a date ;) should be fun!

Awesome!! I will get it translated…
So sad for elder, what blessings he is missing out on, grateful for a pres into with the spirit to help the work move along and also do what is right for the elder himself, he will be better off in the long run I hope….
Do you see very many 18 year olds serving? Do you think the maturity level has much to do with the work?
Caden your cousin is leaving next month for mtc and going to New York, I think he just turned 18…seems so young….
Do you have very many sisters in your area? Have they started wearing pants?
Saw a picture of you that Hermana madsen posted in the pouring rain, soaking you to the bone….does it rain like that a lot? We love the picture of course because you are in it and that the pres is in shorts
😊 seems like such a great guy!!
yes!! haha all the newbies..  but thats cool that kayden in going to new york tell him congrats!! nope havent seen hermanas in pants yet.. but we have 6 sisters that arein the zone.. maybe about 2 times a week it rains like that.... :)
Wow, so is that ½ your zone that are girls? That’s a lot of rain, does it last long? How are your wards doing? Ixcotel being nice still and welcoming to the spirit of missionary work? Please encourage Jax to read the bofm, I really think he needs it right now and your encouragement will go a lot further than mine-haha!
... haha ok ill invite jax! it rains hard but not for long.. thats the nice thing
Anyways….glad that you are happy and that your testimony is growing, we can tell by your letters that you are excited about the work and serving the people where you are! So very happy and proud of you! Are you feeling safe? Any scary stuff?

Plan de Zona Amapolas

Objetivo: Que los misioneros comprendan la Expiación para poder enseñar el arrepentimiento como una bendición.
¿Cómo podemos enseñar el arrepentimiento más eficazmente?
1.     Arrepentirse diario.
-Alma 34:10, 15

 10.- Porque es preciso que haya un gran y postrer sacrificio; sí, no un sacrificio de hombre, ni de bestia, ni de ningún género de ave; pues no será un sacrificio humano, sino debe ser un sacrificio infinito y eterno.
 15.- Y así él trae la salvación a cuantos crean en su nombre; ya que es el propósito de este último sacrificio poner en efecto las entrañas de misericordia, que sobrepujan a la justicia y proveen a los hombres la manera de tener fe para arrepentimiento.

2.     Practicar de 2 a 3 veces a la semana la Expiación y el Arrepentimiento.
-Alma 37:33
33.-Predícales el arrepentimiento y la fe en el Señor Jesucristo; enséñales a humillarse, y a ser mansos y humildes de corazón; enséñales a resistir toda tentación del diablo, con su fe en el Señor Jesucristo.

3.     Enseñarles a los miembros la Expiación y el Arrepentimiento.

-Alma 8:27-30

27.- Y Alma permaneció muchos días con Amulek, antes de empezar a predicar al pueblo.
28.- Y sucedió que el pueblo se envileció aún más en sus iniquidades.
29.- Y llegó la palabra a Alma, diciendo: Ve; y también di a mi siervo Amulek que salga y profetice a este pueblo, diciendo: Arrepentíos, porque así dice el Señor: A menos que os arrepintáis, visitaré a este pueblo en mi ira; sí, y no desviaré mi furiosa ira.
30.- Y salió Alma, y también Amulek, entre el pueblo para declararle las palabras de Dios; y fueron llenos del Espíritu Santo.

4.     Explicar con claridad porque dejamos compromisos.

    -P.M.E. Página 19

“Si la verdadera doctrina se entiende, ello cambia la actitud y el comportamiento. El estudio de la doctrina del Evangelio mejorará el comportamiento de las personas más fácilmente que el estudio sobre el comportamiento humano”.

5.     Dar una experiencia personal en todas las lecciones.

-Alma 36:17-21, 25,30

17.- Y aconteció que mientras así me agobiaba este tormento, mientras me atribulaba el recuerdo de mis muchos pecados, he aquí, también me acordé de haber oído a mi padre profetizar al pueblo concerniente a la venida de un Jesucristo, un Hijo de Dios, para expiar los pecados del mundo.
18.- Y al concentrarse mi mente en este pensamiento, clamé dentro de mi corazón: ¡Oh Jesús, Hijo de Dios, ten misericordia de mí que estoy en la hiel de amargura, y ceñido con las eternas cadenas de la muerte!
19.- Y he aquí que cuando pensé esto, ya no me pude acordar más de mis dolores; sí, dejó de atormentarme el recuerdo de mis pecados.
20.- Y, ¡oh qué gozo, y qué luz tan maravillosa fue la que vi! Sí, mi alma se llenó de un gozo tan profundo como lo había sido mi dolor.
21.- Sí, hijo mío, te digo que no podía haber cosa tan intensa ni tan amarga como mis dolores. Sí, hijo mío, y también te digo que por otra parte no puede haber cosa tan intensa y dulce como lo fue mi gozo.
25.- Sí, y he aquí, ¡oh hijo mío!, el Señor me concede un gozo     extremadamente grande en el fruto de mis obras;
30.- Mas he aquí, hijo mío, esto no es todo; porque tú debes saber, como yo sé, que al grado que guardes los mandamientos de Dios, prosperarás en la tierra; y debes saber también que si no guardas los mandamientos de Dios, serás separado de su presencia. Y esto es según su palabra.

6.     Utilizar el Libro de Mormón en cada Lección.

-P.M.E Página 115
“Les ruego que no dejen de apreciar en todo su valor el Libro de Mormón. Oren para tener una visión clara de cómo utilizarlo con más eficacia en su misión. Les prometo que si lo hacen, su mente se verá esclarecida con la dirección que deben tomar”.
                                                                       -ÉLDER JOSEPH B. WIRTHLIN
- Más armonía con el Espíritu
- Más amor hacia nuestros familiares e investigadores
- Nuestro Poder y Autoridad Aumentaran
- Comprenderemos el amor y gratitud de nuestro Salvador
- El deseo de predicar será más fuerte 
- Nuestros testimonios se harán más fuerte
- Satanás no tendrá poder sobre nosotros
- Investigadores que realmente progresen
- Alma 42:23
¨Mas Dios no cesa de ser Dios, y la misericordia reclama al que se arrepiente; y la misericordia viene a causa de la expiación…¨


Alma 42:31
31.- ¨Y ahora bien, oh hijo mío, eres llamado por Dios para predicar la palabra a este pueblo. Ve, hijo mío; declara la palabra con verdad y con circunspección, para que lleves almas al arrepentimiento, a fin de que el gran plan de misericordia pueda reclamarlas...¨


Dear mom and dad, i am doing good!! yes i was able to get my tooth put back in and its almost like it didnt even come off.. haha this week was a little dramatic.. not to bad... but ill just say that one of the missionaries is returning home a little early.. because he didnt want to be obedient.. so.. thats sad.. but we did what we could..   this week was very good we got to work a little bit more in our own area and we contacted alot on Ixcotel and they yelled at us and go mad, but then the next day we went to contact in Bosque, and the very first door opened up to us and her name is Cesilia, and she is a 23 yr old and she is super cool, and she told us that she felt something different with us there,, and she wants the best for her daughter. and then we also found a older lady called Vicky and she is also very cool very cool!! so things are moving along, we had ward conference this week and we got permision to go to the temple with the ward on saturday, and me and my comp got to do confirmations and some of the other ordinances and we were witnesses for sealings...... OH MY GOSH.... listening the the prayer and the things that the temple workeer said........ wow IM GOING TO GET MARRIED...... haha it kind of made me a little sad because im not gonna be able to see jaces sealing.-... but thats just how things are.. and we also got to do a session... so saturday was a fantastic day!! we entered around 9 in the morning and left around 3... and ate burger kind after.... i have not been able to talk to president about plans... for flying but i will this week... i have been talking to him about other things.. haha other missionaries.. but we had a great week! :) and i gave a baptismal interview to a kid thats 14 that talks enlgish and i gave the interview in english and it was great!!! love you guys hope you all have a great week! Elder Weaver
Yay!! So glad you have had a great experience in the temple!! And to be able to spend the whole day there, what a blessing!! I too wish that you could be a Jace’s but you will be there in thought and in spirit and how fantastic that you have the desire to received those blessings from being sealed in the temple 😊 sorry to hear about the elder going home, but better that he work things out some other way then to disrupt the spirit of missionary work where you are …Did you got to the temple with the bosque ward or ixcotel? I am super happy that you have found new contacts and that they are excited about you finding them, I will call the temple and put names in tomorrow 😊The kid you interviewed in English, is he latino? Did you get to attend the baptism? Shoes?
we attended for Ixcotel! and  he is latino but he lived in the US for a long time... ha and he likes english more than spanish, and i didnt go tot he baptism.. haha but Elder Reyes also said the baptismal prayer in english and it was sick.. he told me about it and that everyone was crying..  no no shoes..... haha sorry
So I pray that all is going well for ixcotel ward and they are more receptive to the spirit and the missionaries 😊 that’s awesome about the English baptism, so funny that we think its cool to hear in Spanish and they English, all that really matters is the spirit, just amazing that it is so universal-huh!  Shoes, Justin, you need to get some the next time you get food, besides pizza-hahah!  Do you have fhe tonight? What did you do for pday?
ill try and get some.... hahah today we just cleaned the house took things easy.. went to the central of Oaxaca..  and i bought a few things.. for dad.. ;) tonight we are going to be teaching a new kid named Adair and he wants to get baptized but we got to talk with his mom aand see what we can do! his moms name is Coral! 
So happy to hear that you have had an easy day, have to rejuvenate to work hard the rest of the week….thats awesome you bought a few things Ill check account again and make sure you are good…what are you teaching Adair tonight? How old is he and how did you find him? I will add their names to temple list…Did you ever hear if that ladies family that the sister missionaries found was baptized?
well he actually lives in the same house as Sandra and Alessandra but he never wanted to be baptized and now after their baptisms he wants to get baptized.. im still checking on that.. theychanged the sisters that were there and i dont know what happened.. but ill check tonight i report with them tonight!
so many blessing from one/two baptisms, many generations affected! The lords plan is incredible huh! How is Edwardo? What is your favorite part of the bofm? 
Edwardo is good he left to Mexico city and will come back in like a month.. i dont know... i really enjoyed the part when coriamtumur was fighting sooo much and that he had to rest on his sword to regain stregnth, and then get back up and keep fighting... that part really stuck out to me this time reading it.. haha  im no for sure if i spelled his name right.. but i liked that part.. alot.. this time reading the BOM
It makes perfect sense that that would stand out, you likened the scriptures to yourself at this time in your life, you are fighting for the right, and you have to lean on your sword/testimony/heavenly father to find the strength to continue the fight great job! You are a warrior!! Love it, I need to read it again, Ive been slacking since I don’t walk much anymore….need to read before or after work….how are you liking being zone leader?
i like being a Zone Leader but its stressful... last night me and mom couldnt go to sleep because we were thinging of this elder that is going home early.... just thinging and feeling bad for him.... its fun, and its busy, :)
Like I said before, lots of parenting experiences, breaks your heart to see that they could change and be so much happier and want to have them make right choices, but we all have to learn from their mistakes and the consequence are not always what we would like to happened for those we care about…lots of great lessons and I am so glad that you are learning things like that on your mission, you are learning great leadership skills that will definitely help you in life as you grow….Comp situation going well? Better? How often do you have zone meetings, and or talk to pres? Saw pictures of you with mac and cheese and corndog!  love the extra pictures
true true true.... ya things are going good.... cant complain right now...:) we are going to have another zone conf, next week. and me and my comp are going to be doing it... ha 
What are you going to do? How many missionaries are you over now? Glad things are better with comp! I hope you know and can feel the power of prayer! Pray so hard that you will be safe, and safe from comp too! That you will find new contacts and be strong and healthy to continue to following the spirit and doing the work the best you can, all of those things have been answered this week…pray is real and we are so very blessed to have a loving heavenly father to listen! Brings so much happiness!!!Pray a lot during the day-as much as on the best two years guy? Hahah!
i do... believe me im praying lots and lots!!!!!!!  we are going to be training the elders and sisters.. and im still jsut over 12... but we will be talking and making all the plans.. i dont know if presidnt with be there or not.. maybe..
Pretty exciting! 12 is a lot! Pretty awesome that you get to plan and carry out, what skills you are developing!!So a funny from yesterday, Jace got his new hometeaching route and guess who his companion is? Yep, Braeden next door  he is going to ask him when he wants to go and see what he says!! Pretty funny huh!!
hahahaha thats sooo funny!! haha jace and braedon.. man.....

im almost sure that he glued it on with Elmers Glue....;) haha 

the turkey chased my comp and he RAN!! haha it was pretty funny.
Did they have to deaden your tooth? Think it will stay on? Wild turkey? It looks huge!!

nope.... it took like 10 min... he just cleaned my tooth and dried it and bam.. stuck the sucker on there and i feel like it will at least stay for 4 months... i hope.. ha 
FINISHED THE BOOK OF MORMON TODAY- read it in Spanish! :) 
Congratulations!!! Did you ever think when Jordan would read in Spanish at home that you would too? I am so very proud of you!! What a great example you are!!!   Love your reading chart too! Bring it home so we can frame it  the temple is So very pretty, I’m excited to attend!!
haha nope...... never i remember the first time he tried helping me to say a prayer and i understood nothing... haha funny funny..
I am so excited for you two to speak Spanish in the house, hope I can pick up a few things and that jax will use his, I think he understands and can say more then he lets on….it would be awesome to have bilingual grandkids Did any of your brothers write you yet? Jace said he wrote last week and didn’t hear back, did you get his?Do you think that your mission time has started to go faster? To me it has when we added the wedding inbetween, Jace has about 29 days and you are about 106…. So close to double digits Our lesson in rs Sunday was about the temple and I wanted share a part “If we will be true and faithful to the Lord’s principles, then we will always be temple worthy, and the Lord and his holy temples will be the great symbols of our discipleship with him. Once having been found worthy to enter the temple, we perform ordinances that are the most sacred administered anywhere on the earthThese ordinances are concerned with the things of eternity.”  Love the bold part and it hit me strong….concerned with things of eternity!
NO the brothers did not write and yes!!! time has flown by since i became a Zone Leader.... and thanks for putting me trunky...;) hahaha thats a grat quote i like that alot!!!! hey i just remembered the name of the Hotel.. its called Anturium Hotel.... youll have to look it up.. its also pretty cheap..
