Good times in Morelia

Saturday August 15, 2015


This week was another good one! At stake conference in Morelia I found the Arredondo family!! Elder Ormeño and I taught them over a year ago! I was so excited to see them! They are all doing well and sister Arredondo says she has been relief society president for almost the whole year she has been baptized!

Elder Raya and I took President and Sister Egginton on the downtown Morelia tour on Saturday night! Here is a picture of the Cathedral. There were fireworks and everything! While we were walking through the crowed I heard "Kadyn!!!" and when I turned around I saw a family that I taught while I was in Morelia. They were a pretty unusual family and they thought that I had finished my mission and come back with my parents. I have no idea how they know my name.. They were so excited to see my "family" hahaha. The dad bowed to President Egginton. We only taught them 3 or 4 times about a year ago and then stopped teaching them because they weren't progressing. When I saw them last week I told them to go find the missionaries and get baptized! The dad then bowed to me and said he would do it. That made a pretty good journal entry.

We are saying goodbye to 26 missionaries on Sunday who finish their missions and are welcoming in 10 new ones on Monday. I´m going to be here in Bugambilias for at least another 6 weeks so I'm pretty happy about that.

Have a great week everyone!

I love to see the Temple

Saturday August 8, 2015


The temple trip went great! All of the converts since january were there and all of them brought names of their ancestors to be baptized for. We were able to watch the baptisms and confirm some of them. It was such a sweet experience. Rosa had to head our early but here are the rest of them!

Other than that we have been working more in our area and have found a few great new investigators. Our ward has a bunch of young men and we are starting to work a lot more with them. We are going to have an activity this next week where a few young men come and work with us for 3 days straight. It`s going to be kind of like a mission prep crash course. haha. Today we are headed to Morelia for the weekend because President and Sister Egginton are speaking in a stake conference there.

Things are going great! I`m still loving being a missionary :)

Temple Prep

Saturday August 1, 2015

Hello again!

Another great week. This week we worked a lot with our recent converts. This afternoon we are going to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. All of the people I have baptized here in this area have their temple recommend and have names of their ancestors to bring to the temple to be baptized for them. I don't think I`ve ever been so excited in my mission! We did more family history research this week than I have done in my whole life. It`s such a great feeling helping new converts continue faithful in the gospel.

That was pretty much our week! Next week I`ll send pictures of the temple trip :) Have an excellent week!

Hello Family!

This week was one of my favorite weeks of my mission! The Murillo family`s baptism was last saturday! It went really well. Sister Murillo`s niece, who is a member, also came and she is the one that passed us the reference of the Murillo family so that made it very special. We were 8 people all dressed up in white! Two members who helped us with the teaching baptized brother and sister Murillo and Elder Raya and I baptized the two girls, Fatima and Sandra. It was one of the most spiritual baptismal services I have been in.

FSY was also a blast. There were almost 800 kids there participating and on tuesday we got to teach four groups of 90. We kind of felt like rock stars after. EVERYONE wanted to take selfies with us haha. And the next day we went back with 50 missionaries to teach them how to share the gospel with their friends. It was a blast.

Other than that we have been trying to find people to teach and working a lot with our investigator Francisco. He is preparing to be baptized in August.

This whole mission thing is awesome. I love it. Even though there are a lot of hard times, it`s all worth it.

Have a great week!

Hola familia :)

This week has been great. Tonight is the baptismal service of the Murillo family!! We are very excited. Jaime, Araceli, Sandra, and Fatima will all be baptized. Our dear friend Abel Tovar leaves for his mission to Monterrey this next week. He has had such a sweet conversion in the past 8 months and has helped us out so much here in our area. His family was the family that was sealed just a couple months ago. The whole ward is very excited for him.

We got back from Michoacán on Wednesday afternoon and have been getting back to the work here in our area. It was a long trip!! We were half dead when we pulled back in to Guadalajara but the Lord continues to bless us with strength :)

This week will be pretty fun. We are going to EFY with President Egginton on Tuesday to speak and teach some classes and on Wednesday we are also going with a bunch of missionaries from our mission to teach the youth how to teach the restoration.

I have felt so close to my Savior during my mission. I am growing closer to him and have been able to see and feel how much our Father in Heaven loves each and everyone one of us. As we drove through some tiny little towns in the middle of nowhere this week I thought about how our Heavenly Father knows and loves each person, no matter where they live or what they are going through. Its amazing to me how personal of a relationship each one of us can have with the same God that created us all. He love us all :)

Be happy and have a great week!
