Visit from Presi!

Well it was a really quick week. It went by wayyyy fast. Just like every week. We really saw the Lords hand in the work ths week.

On Wednesday we were looking for someone to come with us to visit an investiagtor and we got a call from President Santos. He ended up coming with us to visit this guy. It was really cool to teach with President. He Helped us a ton with Jose. the spirit was super strong and Jose will be getting baptized on the 10th of june.

Anyways, we had tons of people come to church.  The Ward is growing bigger and bigger every week! We had 267 people in total in the ward this week. The Lord is really blessing this sector. I hope i get to stay here for a while.

My son elder Pihl almost has a year in the mission… thats super crazy. Makes me feel really old… :/

I love you all!

Skype it up

Well I don’t have much to say other than it was a good Mothers Day! It rained all day yesterday, but we were inside for most of it. So we didn’t get wet too much.

Skype was super nice. I loved talking to everyone. Radley is getting huge! Everyone is changing. Jace is giant. Mom is super skinny, and dad is old ;)!” hahaha

We have 2 baptisms this weekend, Robinson and Vicente. They are brothers. super cool. Robinson is taller than i am.

We were planning to go to the beach today but we couldnt go because we had choir practice…. 😦 Oh well we played volleyball instead! I’m part of a mission choir, we are going to have a 70 come to the mission so we will be singing for him. There is 16 of us in the choir. Maybe they will film it and put it on the mission blog.

We have to go shopping still and then shower it up and hit the road to start working. The biggest problem we have here in the Mission, People want miracles to happen but we are the ones doing the miracles, Nephi understood that. That is why he went back to Jerusalem 2 times! Just keep enduring to the end!

It’s weird how fast everything has gone by, I have one skype left, one conference left. My mission is coming to end really really fast…

I love you all. Ask more questions this week!

Love,
Elder Larsen

Levis

This week was a weird week. It went by super fast but really nothing interesting happened. We are a little low on people to teach right now but yesterday we found a ton of people and a whole new neighborhood to work through.

So I’m pumped to get to work this week.

There’s this place where they sell encebollado thats called LEVIS its really good.  Later today we are going to play Soccer so that should be cool!

But i don’t know what to say! Sorry mom! I love you!

Baptisms

Well it was a really good week. We finished the tranfer off super strong. We baptized 5 people this weekend. It wasn’t easy and I don’t think I have experienced that level of stress before in my life. But everything miraculously turned out okay.

We baptized a single mom with two of her kids, and two sisters apart from them. It was a really cool experience to see all the hard work pay off in one instant.

I will be with Elder Rabanal this transfer again. We are hoping to be able to beat our last month record and baptize 7 people. So keep us in your prayers to be able to do it!

Anyways, this week one of the Elders in our house finished his mission, it was super weird to see it go down. It made me really scared for the time that I will finish my mission… I dont think I’m ready 😦 I am super not wanting to finish my mission. Its comin to an end wayyyy toooo fast.
