More Miracles

Our multi-mission conference
May 30, 2016

          We are doing really well here in El Bosque.  We have been seeing a lot of miracles here. Hugo (our investigator) went to church this week even though it was pouring rain. We have been able to have a couple lessons with him and he has a big interest in family history work so we are going to work on that this week.

          Another miracle is our ward missionary is really excited about missionary work and she invited us to give a blessing to one of her friends, Maria, that is from a different religion. We gave the blessing and she was very happy to receive it and the member invited her to go to church and told her that she would pass by in the morning. Maria and her son both went to church this week!

          With Elder Brumble we have been having a lot of ideas for cooking stuff.  Right now I`m not able to send any photos that are on his camera but I will send some in the next weeks or so.

Love you guys,

May 23, 2016

Hello everybody,

          This week went really well.  We had some miracles happen, especially with the investigators that we found recently. Yesterday we went to church and there was a non-member that showed up, Hubo.  He has been going to a lot of different churches trying to find the truth. The members were really excited to see someone in church and the helped him feel comfortable there.

          The other miracle we had was we were able to have a lesson with an old investigator, Claudia.  She has a different religion, but her sister is a member and she is reading the Book of Mormon.  Claudia believes that it is scripture, but still believes that almost all of the churches are true and good. But she said that she will pray and ask if she needs to join our church.

          This week our zone has been focusing on talking with everyone.  We have been able to see a lot more success in our zone due to talking with everybody and also asking for references.

          I hope you all have a great week,

Elder Rogers

Good Times with Elder Brumble

May 16, 2016

Hey everybody,

          This week was a very good week, we were able to find some new investigators that are really cool. It can be very difficult sometimes when their religion is very similar in some ways and in other ways it is completely different. But we have a message that is very different than just convincing people.  It`s all about them asking God.

          This change is going to be really fun.  I`m with Elder Brumble from West Valley (Salt Lake City) and we have had many crazy things happen.  It is insane!  First off, I got bit by a dog, but don`t worry it`s not infected or anything.  And we also saw a porta potty that is by our house that got knocked over and nobody came to take it away, ha ha. Yesterday in Uruguay was Mother’s Day, so happy mother`s day from Uruguay yesterday!!!

Love you guys,

Elder Rogers

The Final Change

May 9, 2016

Hey everybody, 

          Changes is this week and I`m staying in my area and my companion is leaving and going to Rocha. My new companion is Elder Brumble, I kind of already know him.  He has 6 weeks less on the mission as I do. Something crazy is that this change (6 weeks) is my last change. Don´t worry I´m not trunky.  I am really excited to work the best I can in my area and finish the mission strong.

          Happy Mothers Day to all of those mothers out there, I hope your day was very special. Something crazy is that here Mother’s day isn´t until next week, so it was kind of weird to do skype last Sunday and for everybody else it was just another day. 

          Well, I would love to send you some photos but the computer I´m using doesn´t have a USB drive that works, so until next week.

Learning Patience

May 2, 2016

Hey everybody,

          This week we have been focusing a lot with working with our new ward mission leader and the ward missionaries. It is really great to have ward missionaries.  This is the first ward that I have been in that I have had ward missionaries and they are so cool. They have been going with us to the lessons that we have been having and also contacting the investigators and the less-active members that we are working with.

          My companion and I decided to work on patience this week and when you decide to work on patience, you`re asking for lot of difficult times, haha. We have had kind of a difficult week, but we are passing through it with patience and I know the Lord is preparing people in our area for us to visit.

          I hope you all have a great week,

Elder Rogers
