August 22, 2011

So just wanna throw out props to Brooklyn for her driving!

That one family that me and my comp received revelacion for like 3 weeks ago got married and baptized this week. It was so awesome. We threw fire this week. I'll send you pics. Just on our part of town 4 families were baptized, 9 people. It was an awesome experience. First 5 families got married then after 4 families got baptized. It was a party and I loved it.

So we told our family that after their baptism we were going to go out to eat and we told them that they could choose what ever restaurant that they wanted. They told us they want to go to a restaurant called Antiguo Tezoatega. So we were down with that thinkin it was a normal chill restaurant. Well not normal cause the restaurants here are a lot more ghettoer then those in the states. So on our way to the restaurant we saw some club lookin place with a sign above it that said Antiguo Tezoatega. Well that is where we ended up eating dinner ha ha. It was like a club. There wasn't anyone there but there was loud music and and flashing lights I guess it was more like a bar club ha ha. So I can say the first time I went into a bar I was on my mission ha ha. But it was way fun and the food was so good. It was like American cooked food. I told my comp that you were freakin awesome and would be awesome about it and just laugh. It was quite the experience.

Anyways to continue I guess I can kinda say that I went to the temple on Sunday. Here we didn't have normal meetings. The El Salvador temple got dedicated and we went and watched the dedication. Only those that were interviewed and had tickets could enter. It was so awesome and so spiritual. I literally felt like I was in the temple. I loved it. It was also way funny. Henry B Eyring dedicated it and that guy is a clown. When they were sealing the corner stone he was making a ton of jokes. He is so funny. But anyways it was amazing. They were all in white. Elder Christoferson spoke ya, I totally met him. And Eyring wow that guy is a stud. I wish you were there to experience it but we couldn't take anything in and don't remember a ton but I remember the feelings I felt and how amazing it was. I had not felt the spirit so strong in a while. Not saying I don't feel the spirit but during the dedication it was amazing and the dedicatory prayer wow. Everything about it was amazing. There was 3 sessions and they were are all about 2 hours long. I was there in the church from 8 in the morning till 5. It was so awesome cause all my recent converts went and I was so happy that they could experience that. I love this work, I love this church, I know it's true.

One of my recent converts is like a missionary now. Nestor, he was part of the 5 I baptized in June. He is 13 and always goes out with the missionaries to help teach. He has gone with us twice and it is so awesome to hear him share his testimony and teach. I love the change I have seen in all of them. I know this is the Kingdom of God. I have no doubt about that. I know that Jesus Christ leads and Guides this church through a living prophet. I know that. I know all the things the church teaches are true. I know it.

I love this work.

Love you mommy,
Love, Elder Moore

Mommy you on here today my lovely little butterfly ha ha please say yes cause I just wanna chat with you. Alrighty then well I suppose you aint here to chat with me.

But it was awesomely exciting to hear about your week. My week was not all to great. Not much to tell you. Except for the fact that yesterday I gave a talk in sacrament meeting. I gave a talk about Faith. It was really awesome. I feel way more comfortable now giving talks. I dunno why maybe cause it's in Spanish and I feel more comfortable that way. But it went good. I enjoyed it.

So this week I got the package. That Dr Pepper was the best thing I had tasted in over a year. Thank you it was amazing. I was so scared to drink it cause I didn't want to ruin it. I just wanted an unlimited amount of Dr Pepper. Well in less than a year I will have that.

And the cinnamon toast crunch is amazing. I am addicted to that stuff. And gushers amazing. I did the mood taste it said I was silly ha ha. And I am practicing the harmonica, putting it to use ha ha,sweet. When you send me the next box just throw all the ties I sent home in there. That will be awesome. I am stoked for the next box you send.

I have changed a lot here but I am still freakin awesome. I actually am thinking I am getting a lot more cooler and a lot less shyer ha ha. I don't want to go back in to the stupid things I did before the mission. You can't be a follower. You gotta be a leader and be your self. We only need to be a follower of one person and that would be our brother Jesus Christ.

I miss old home videos. I can't wait to just come home and pass days watching them. I can't wait to be celebrating Christmas with the family again. To be honest all I want for Christmas is to just sit down as a family and watch home videos and drink hot chocolate in pajamas. It really is about who we are with not about what we get.

My comp is awesome. I love that clown. Have you talked to his family yet? His name is Cody Denton from South Jordan Utah.

And my rash is getting a ton better. It doesn't bother me as much, but you can still see it.

I tell everyone I am from LA. The thing is that no one knows what Utah is here. They only know 4 cities from the states, New York, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles. So I just tell everyone I am from LA unless they are members. Plus I was born in LA so I aint lyin.

Love you to the max mommy. Miss you a ton and take care.

Love ya.

You definitely need to start to awesome more ha ha. Anyways I'll get to the point. This week was an amazing week it was a week that made me think that I would love to be a missionary for my life. Just always being able to say that I am a representative of Jesus Christ is amazing and I love be able to say that. I know that with out doubt that we are representatives of Jesus Christ. I don't even know how to describe all the spiritual experiences we had. That family we found went to church and an actividad we had. And they know a ton of members. I was so surprised to see how many people they knew.

We gave a lot of blessings this week and saw a lot or miracles. I truly love being a missionary and being able to serve others. I love being just like Jesus Christ.I really have seen a lot of miracles. I know that God is a God of Miracles and will never stop being a God of Miracles.

Alright so remember that girl we gave the blessing to a little over a week ago. Well she came up to me this week and asked me what I put on her head cause she said that she knows what we did that night made her better the next day. It was amazing to me that a girl so young just a little 11 year old knowing that the blessing we gave her helped her.

Also had a good attendance this Sunday. When I got to this ward 42 people showed up. Well this Sunday we got 97 there . We have a goal of 100 so we almost got it ha ha. Just a little bit more work.

I forgot to tell you that I am learning a new language here called Miskitu that only like 200,000 people speak in the world. I can share my testimony and pray. I have a goal to share my testimony in Miskitu at my home coming talk. I will share it with you right now ha ha so you can see how it is.

yang testimomnioki manani wal sher munaisna yang nusna Jisas Kras raya ba yang nusna naha Dawan churcka sa Yang nusna Dawa latuan wan kaika Yang nusna naha mormon buk ka na Dawan bila sa Yang nusna naha buh ka na ya wan nth sa kan cler wan munisa Dawan ila an witin wal kaya bankayara yang nusna Jose Smithba prapik kumkan Dawan mihta wahbisakankan Yang nusna Thomas S Monson na dawan prapihka sa. Yang nusna Dawan bles wan munisa wi ya wan watin bila wali daukitem. Naha Jisas Kras ninara Suisna amen

Make sure to put that on my blog that I am learning Miskitu and throw my testimony on there too ha ha.

Also Hector my recent convert that is 10 bore his testimony again on Sunday. I wasn't there for it cause I ain't in his ward anymore but I heard a lot of people cried and in his testimony he said that he knew that this was the true church and that he was so thankful for me and Elder Alfaro for teaching him the true gospel and just a bunch of awesome stuff. He made people cry. Also he said the prayer in sacrament meeting and prayed for the missionaries. That missionaries around the world will feel ever church and that the people can come to know that this is the true church.

Also Nestor the 13 year old is now going out with the missionaries and bringing investigadores to church. He brought some of his friends to church this week and now they want to get baptized. But Nestor is awesome he has changed so much. He was such a rotten child before but has changed so much. He just behaved so badly, didn't really have respect for his mom but so much has changed. It has been amazing to see the change in that family. I love that family so much.

Also the dad of that family that we reactivated got the melquidec priesthood and we taught him how to give blessings this week. And he gave a blessing to his daughter Xiomarra. It was an awesome experience.

I love this church so much and I am so thankful for our Savior and that part that he plays in my life. I know with out doubt that this is the true church. I love it and know 100% that Jesus Christ leads and guides this church through a true prophet called of God. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet and I know if we follow his teachings we will return to live with our Father in Heaven in happiness. I know that these things are true. Its kinda hard to share how I really feel about it. My testimony has grown so much. I know that Christ lives and loves us. I know that through Joseph Smith the Gospel was restored. And I know that he was a prophet called by God. I know that. I really do know that. And I love it.

THIS IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD HERE ON EARTH. Always be worthy to be a part of HIS kingdom.

I love you and miss you a ton.

Love, Elder Moore

August 1, 2011

Que onda mama. So sounds like ya all enjoyed the greatness that happened this week. Glad to hear I have crazy unicycle clowns as relatives ha ha. And it's not just one, it's a herd of them ha ha. That is awesome. I am jealous of their talent that they have. The good ole unicycle clan.

I am going to be honest, I hate writing, I love reading just hate writing. But in order to receive letters I need to write letters. I think I kinda hate it cause I suck at writing. So I'll just get to the awesomeness that happened this week.

First off we have been lending some mad service. In just one day we dug a huge hole and threw a ton of rocks in it to make a filter. But the digging was like a week long thing. I only went for like 3 days to dig. The hole was like 10 feet deep, like 15 feet long and like 6 feet wide. It was awesome but kind of hard and boring work.

Also we cut down a huge tree with an axe. I came to find out that I am pretty pro at using an axe. Cut it down and well the tree fell on a house kinda. I'll send pics next week of that adventure of cutting down a tree with an axe and machette. Just the camara with the fotos is not here with me so next week hopefully I will have them.

Next one of our investigators her daughter was way sick and throwing up and looked super dead to be honest. so we decided to give her a blessing. So we gave her the blessing and she was almost a hundred percent better the next day. It was truly a miracle. The mother was so grateful for the blessing. She didn't say anything about it the next day until she prayed with us and she told God how thankful she was for the blessing that we gave to her daughter Lizbit.

So had an awesome spiritual experience this week. We were leaving the church on Thursday and we had just had an activity that kinda went horrible. But we wanted to find a family to teach. So we decided to pray to ask God to help us find a family to teach and to lead us to that family. My comp thought I was crazy that I wanted to pray at that moment. He thought I was joking but I told him we needed to do it. So we said a prayer in front of the church and went out to find the family. We started contacting a lot of people but didn't really find anything. People ya but the family no. While we were contacting I had the impression to go up another way to get to our dinner appointment cause at this time it was like 8 o'clock. Time to eat dinner right? So ya I had the impression to go up another road that would take us farther away from our dinner appointment but taking that road we would eventually get there. Well I kinda denied that impression and we went up the road we usually go up. We passed the first street and I felt like I needed to turn there and didn't. So then like a vision came to my head and in the vision I saw us turning down one of the streets and contacting a family. So I told my comp what I had saw in my head and he told me jokingly, "We can't turn down there, they will kill us" cause it was a way ghetto street. So I responded with ya your right, we can't go down there. But he told me know you had the vision and we are going to follow it. So we turned and like 3 minutes of walking down that street I saw the family I had previously seen in my head. And so we went to contact them but I did what Kirby Heyborne does on the Best 2 Years, I got all tongue locked and just stuck my hand out and didn't know what to say. Ya my comp made fun of me after that ha ha. But anyways it was a fmaily that had previously talked to the missionaries and had a Book of Mormon and they didn't know why the missionaries stopped going to their house and so now we are teaching them. It was an amazing experience. Me and my comp make a good team ha ha. I have the revelacions and he makes me follow them ha ha.

So next ya totally completed a year this week and celebrated legendarily. We had a little get together roasted smores ate brownies and cookies and burned a white church shirt it was so awesome. I'll send pictures so you can the legendariness of it all. So good news, I will be seeing you in less than a year ha ha. That is so dope i cant wait.

Also, this week we visited a Catholic church in our area. The two bowl looking things are where they baptize.

What the heck, Katie is getting married, that is so awesome. I didn't think that day would come for a while but that's awesome. And Matt Lym, how is he doing? So ya Dano gets back in October, he gets home like a month sooner than he left but that is so awesome psh time is flying it's crazy. 1 year done 1 to go.

Mommy I need you to do me a favor and send me the recipe for the way sweet awesome good tasting apple pie that we eat. I think we are going to attempt to make it here in this country in which I rule. I would like to get it as soon as possible so I can enjoy the deliciousness taste of the o so wonderful apple pie. Thank you darling. I love you and miss you tons. Take care. Adios.

I love ya so much. You are amazing. Love ya.

Love, Elder Moore
