Well things have been going well. We have been going still with some of the old investigators that the other Elders had. Sadly our baptism from last week fell through, but we will have it soon probably. The thing is that Fany's boyfriend made her think that she isn't ready to get baptized. We're kind of upset with him. But it will be fine In other news we had a meteor hit Puebla. I was in exchanges so I didn't see it, but apparently it fell at like 3 in the morning and my comp woke up and saw it. Apparently, it shook the whole house and lit up everything.
This week we had a ton of stuff to do. Last Monday we had a zone activity that we had to plan and get rolling. We did "minute to win it." And then on Tuesday we had to give our zone training meeting. On Wednesday we had to give a presentation to the Stake President about our Zone and we had to do it without President Stellmon because we got their late because our taxi picked us up really late. On Thursday we had our weekly planning session, on Friday exchanges with a district leader and on Saturday we did divisions so that my companion could go talk to an investigator that I had already talked to from another area. (He had to go because this guy is a big baby and did not like me after I was with him- but I was not hard on him at all) So my comp came back kind of freaked out because apparently that guy was really mean and had looked up anti-Mormon stuff and just talked really bad about the church and how he did not want to get baptized. (He isn't exactly a good guy- but we were going for a last chance rescue mission) So yesterday we had to do divisions again because we had a lot of appointments and then one of the brothers didn't come so we had to get someone last minute and hit up a few appointments. Then I talked a little bit with the ward mission leader about things we could do to get the ward moving with missionary work. It was a fun week-exhausting- but fun. Anyway I LOVE YOU MOM. WE'LL KEEP WORKING HARD :D

Love, Elder Dazey

Short but Sweet

Well- we had a zone activity today and we have a lot of stuff coming up to do. We had a lesson last night with a new investigator and she asked if the church that Christ made really exists and we said yes and she said WOW. That's cool!” So that was fun. We had Colombian food this week :D To answer your questions about the weather, No Monsoons yet! :D

Skyping and April Fools!

     When we skyped Elder Dazey on Mother’s Day, he told us about how Marco was able to get baptized even though his mom had been against it. Apparently, during one of their lessons with him where his mom was present, she asked, “If he were to get baptized, would he be allowed to visit my Catholic mass with me every once in a while?” and the Elders said that yes, that would be ok. And she said, ”Oh! I thought that he wouldn’t be able to! Well, in that case, yes, he can be baptized into your church.” (and so he was!)
     We also found out that Elder Dazey and his companion had a lot of fun on April Fools Day! They, as Zone Leaders, decided to prank their Zone. So they called around to the different companionships and told them that their was emergency transfers and that they needed to get packed up quickly! Of course they let them know that they were joking, eventually. And then, they decided that they wanted to prank their Mission President! So they thought about something that would sound believable and they called him up right as it was the normal time that they would be leaving to go out and work. They have a spiral staircase in their apartment and so when Elder Dazey called the President, he said “President, on our way out this morning, my companion fell down the spiral staircase and I’m pretty sure that he broke his leg!” The mission president was all worried and asked what hospital he was taking him to. And Elder Dazey said, “Well, the good news is that it’s April Fools Day!” And the president said that that didn’t matter, what hospital was he taking him to! And Elder Dazey repeated that it was April Fools Day. And the Mission President said, “Elder Dazey, do you think this is funny?” And he said, “ Well, yes, I did.” And the Mission President responded with, “Well then, GAME ON!”
Three weeks went by and Elder Dazey and his companion got a call from a companionship that they knew were having problems. And the Elder told them that his disobedient companion had gotten mad and walked out of the apartment alone and he had no idea where he had gone! Elder Dazey and his comp started forming a plan as to how they would find this Elder and they called up the Assistants to the President to let them know what was going on. They didn’t believe Elder Dazey, saying this was probably another prank like on April Fools Day and hung up on them. So they called the President. They told him what was going on and he listened. He asked them what was their plan for finding this lost Elder and they told him that they were going to call the companion back and form a search party. And the President said, “Well, before you call him back, do you remember a call you made to me 3 weeks ago?” And they responded sheepishly that they did. And he said, “Well, this is PAYBACK!” he laughed. They were stunned. They’d been pranked back and more and never saw it coming!
**Since we just skyped him, his letter was short this week.
  I hope that things keep going well. I have had a good week this week. The other Elders from our ward moved to another ward so we have the whole ward to ourselves. We have basically been working on taking care of both sides. We picked up a lot of work from them and will, hopefully have a lot of baptisms coming up soon. We will need to work hard to keep everything going. We had our leadership meeting on Friday and we just set up the plan for the Zone on Saturday with the Sister Training Leaders. I love you guys a lot. I hope that things keep going well!

Just a quick note

Not much time to write since there were transfers today. We just did that ALL DAY. We are now typing. I still have the same Companion. Same Area.
 I'm glad my new little niece came out healthy. She's so cute!
To answer your question, the volcano has done nothing else. Here are some pictures from Marco's baptism. 

Elder Dazey


So We have been working with Marco- the investigator that was supposed to get baptized this last Sunday. We are still working with him- the thing is is that his Mom doesn't want him to get baptized yet because he is 16. So we got to his house and we have a rule in the mission where we can't go into a house unless there is a man there. We were thinking about doing the lesson outside of the house but it was raining really hard and hailing. We stood underneath a balcony while we waited for it to calm down. We were wet and cold. We were wondering what we could do- It was a really important cita (appointment). We started talking about commanding the storm to stop in the name of Christ. We were thinking about it- but we also didn't want to do it without a prompting. Nothing else was working. No one was coming. I told my companion that we should command the storm to stop. I told him- If it is the will of God- It will stop, if not, it won't. If we command and it is his will- it will stop. So we did. It didn't stop. we waited. A man came out of the door of the house in front of us- neighbor to our investigator's house. He told us to come in to get out of the rain. God wanted us to teach him. We talked and taught and gave him a Book of Mormon, with some reluctance on his part. As we ended the lesson, the storm stopped. He didn't want us to come back- he wasn't that interested- But God planted a seed. God set it up. That was his will. We had the appointment with our other investigator outside- now that God had subsided the storm. 
God sends Miracles.
I love you- I won't have time to type the other experiences.
