Semana Santa And Keep Your Eyes On The Savior

Semana Santa/Holy Week
More Of Semana Santa
Fifty tortillas, another chicken foot and a week full of apostasy. The best news: WE GOT LIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 13 days without light! Tuesday is when it came back on. I can’t even describe how grateful I am to have light and to have a fridge. I never realized how great it is to have light! So grateful!! Anyway Semana Santa (Holy Week) is crazy! It is nuts and not in a good way. It is sad, they all focus on the death of Christ; they hardly ever talk about the resurrection. It really should be called beer feast. So many people just drink, drink and drink some more, they are drunk all week. I wish that they would listen to our message and learn of the true meaning of Easter. I wish you guys could have seen this week. I hope Easter Sunday was great for you guys. 
Hiking To The Waters Of Baptism
Sacred Waters
This week we found a family that the missionaries used to teach. The relief society president was talking to the mom and told her to let us teach the family. She told her this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mom told the relief society president that she wanted her son to serve a mission. My jaw dropped when the relief society president told me. The next day I went to visit the family and to invite them to a branch activity. The mom told me she wants her son to serve a mission. I looked at him and asked him do you really want to be a missionary and he said yes. I told him to come to the activity and we can talk more. This conversation took place about 10 minutes before the activity, he didn’t come and he didn’t go to church but we are visiting them tonight.
Bad News Treat
We didn’t have a baptism this week. We keep praying Anny will receive her answer and will follow Christ and be baptized. We pray that she will recognize and be ready to receive the gentle tug of the spirit. We will continue to teach, testify, love and pray for her.
The School In School In San Antonio Huista
I gave a talk on prayer in church on Sunday. I shared that prayer is two-way communication and that we should make our prayers more meaningful. We should pray with a heart of gratitude and express our thanks. We should use language that shows respect and reverence. And as we close our prayers, we should take time to pause and listen and not just jump up as if it is a check mark for the day. Heavenly Father will counsel, guide, or comfort us while we are on our knees so be patient and humble. We also watched the first session of General Conference for the last 2 hours of church. I could listen to conference over and over. We should all take time to review the messages that were shared, they will bring a renewed determination to live the gospel and serve the Lord.

So as this past week was Easter and I read a talk by Elder Holland, ‘BROKEN THINGS TO MEND.’ He talks about coming unto Christ. The talk is amazing and truly touches on the Easter season. Elder Holland shares, “There can and will be plenty of difficulties in life. Nevertheless, the soul that comes unto Christ, who knows His voice and strives to do as He did, finds a strength, as the hymn says, ‘beyond [his] own.’ The Savior reminds us that He has ‘graven [us] upon the palms of [His] hands.’ Considering the incomprehensible cost of the Crucifixion and Atonement, I promise you He is not going to turn His back on us now. When He says to the poor in spirit, ‘Come unto me,’ He means He knows the way out and He knows the way up. He knows it because He has walked it. He knows the way because He is the way.” I know Elder Holland’s words to be true. I know Christ will never forget us. I have had the experience on my mission to see the joy of one person coming unto Christ as she put her trust in Him. The Savior knows our heartaches, our struggles, and our difficult path because He has walked the same path.  When you think no one knows or understands how you feel you are wrong, the Son of God knows. Elder Holland shared this, “The Savior’s Atonement lifts from us not only the burden of our sins but also the burden of our disappointments and sorrows, our heartaches and our despair.” The key to the peace and rest we seek is to Come Unto Christ. Elder Holland gives a perfect example of Coming Unto Christ. He said, “I think also of that night when Christ rushed to the aid of His frightened disciples, walking as He did on the water to get to them, calling out, ‘It is I; be not afraid.’ Peter exclaimed, ‘Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.’ Christ’s answer to him was as it always is every time: ‘Come,’ He said. Instantly, as was his nature, Peter sprang over the vessel’s side and into the troubled waters. While his eyes were fixed upon the Lord, the wind could toss his hair and the spray could drench his robes, but all was well—he was coming to Christ. It was only when his faith wavered and fear took control, only when he removed his glance from the Master to look at the furious waves and the ominous black gulf beneath, only then did he begin to sink into the sea. In newer terror he cried out, “Lord, save me.” I have seen that same scenario many times as a missionary and many times before my mission. It is when we take our eyes off Christ is when we fall. It is then we are forced out to cry out “Save Me.” He has sent us as missionaries to reach out our hands of hope teaching to Come Unto Christ. I have seen what happens when one doesn’t taker her eyes off Christ. She was in a storm of fierce trials and she was also my first baptism. She was receiving false doctrines and was faced great temptation. The false words, fear, temptations and voices saying you can’t get baptized could have tossed her into the furious waves but it didn’t, because she never took her eyes off the Savior. There will come a time when the storms of life will try and beat you down and that storm may be hitting right now. I promise if you keep your eyes on Christ you will walk on water (the straight and narrow path that leads to Christ) and YOU WILL NOT FALL! The Savior has promised if you will follow me, I will lead you out of darkness. I will give you answers to your prayers. I will give you rest to your souls. It is my prayer that we will never look away from Christ.
What I love about Mom is she ran the pink run with a broken wrist in a pink cast. What I love about Dad is that he told me what he learned in a priesthood leadership meeting.

Scripture of the week: Luke 24:6 I know this church is true. I am more certain that the church has the priesthood keys than I have ever before. I know that Jesus Of Nazareth is the living Christ. I know that He was slain and crucified and on the third day and He rose from the dead. I know that since He lives and rose from the dead, you and I and everyone will live again in a resurrected body. I know that Jesus Christ is the living Son of a living God. I know he paid the price for our sins, sickness, pains, trials and more. I know that through the Atonement we can have a fresh start, a new page, and our regrets become relief. I know the power of the Atonement I have seen it in my own life. I know that Christ is calling every single one of us to Come Unto Him with arms wide open. All of us can be perfected through Christ. I give you my solemn witness that Christ lives and is a resurrected being. Come unto Christ every day. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Elder McIlmoil 
“Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is not an effort of once a week or once a day. It is an effort of once and for all.” President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

In Nazareth, the narrow road,
That tires the feet and steals the breath,
Passes the place where once abode
The Carpenter of Nazareth.

 And up and down the dusty way
The village folk would often wend;
And on the bench, beside Him, lay
Their broken things for Him to mend.

The maiden with the doll she broke,
The woman with the broken chair,
The man with broken plough, or yoke,
Said, “Can you mend it, Carpenter?”

And each received the thing he sought,
In yoke, or plough, or chair, or doll;
The broken thing which each had brought
Returned again a perfect whole.

So, up the hill the long years through,
With heavy step and wistful eye,
The burdened souls their way pursue,
Uttering each the plaintive cry:

“O Carpenter of Nazareth,
This heart, that’s broken past repair,
This life, that’s shattered nigh to death,
Oh, can You mend them, Carpenter?”

And by His kind and ready hand,
His own sweet life is woven through
Our broken lives, until they stand
A New Creation—“all things new.”

“The shattered [substance] of [the] heart,
Desire, ambition, hope, and faith,
Mould Thou into the perfect part,
O, Carpenter of Nazareth!”

Crazy Story And Teaching Children Of God

My New Friend Hammie
Let’s see we haven’t had light for 12 days! And we have no idea when it is coming back on. It is kind of nice not having light because the moon lights everything up at night. The downside is NO COLD WATER TO DRINK and we can’t use the fridge. This week is going to be a hard week for the whole mission-2 words-HOLY WEEK (Semana Santa). Here in my area the people re-enact Christ’s life, the baptism and other parts of His life then they crucify someone (with rope). They also crucify 2 others (with rope). A very different and unusual Easter tradition.
Me And Elder Gates
We had divisions this week with the zone leaders. It was fun but boy do I have a story! Since there wasn’t light the people in Camoja were protesting. So that meant Elder Gates and I couldn’t get back to my area, the people had the road blocked off with rope and boulders. There were also guys with machetes and they like wouldn’t let anyone pass. It was so crazy! We decided to leave and go get something to eat. We found a little store and bought a couple of bags of tortrix (Guatemalan corn chips.) We decided to go back down to see if anything had changed. As we were waiting to pass we saw people making their own options by going downhill to pass or going up this little hill. Elder Gates and I looked at each other and we both said, “What you looks very tempting.” Then I said, “What are you feeling Elder?” He said, “Not a good idea.” I agreed. We had been waiting for over an hour, so I decided to make eye contact with one of the main guys and he pointed at the rope asking if I wanted to pass, I nodded yes. He nodded to come to him. I told Elder Gates and we went over to him to pass through and the he said, “HEY LET THESE PEOPLE PASS; THEY ARE MORMONS; THEY ARE MISSIONARIES, THEY ARE MEN OF GOD, LET THEM THROUGH." He said it way loud! Some people were not very happy about us being able to pass through. As we were passing through I stopped and shook the man’s hand and said. “God bless you.” Some were so mad that I stopped to tell this guy thank you. It turned out to be a good experience.
Somewhere In Guatemala
Also during divisions I learned so much from Elder Gates. I love this man. The one thing he told me was Mac you can’t let anyone tell you WHAT YOU CANNOT DO. You can’t because you can do whatever you want. He said don’t listen to that crap, even if members say you can’t baptize here, they just go inactive or no one wants to listen to your message and be baptized, just don’t listen to it Mac. He also shared this, “The LORD ALWAYS WANTS YOU TO BAPTIZE ALWAYS, because this is His work you just got to work for it. Always remember if you work hard enough you will get baptisms, but you have to truly work for it. The Lord wants you to baptize but you have to go find those people He has prepared. That’s the part you got to work at Mac, is the finding, the Lord knows His sheep.” It was amazing to work with Elder Gates and we worked hard. I’m so grateful for his advice. I wish we could serve together as companions but he goes home in June.
Daily Rain
We might have a baptism this Saturday. It depends on if this lady recognizes her answer as she prays to follow Christ. Her name is Anny. She is so very nice and wants to learn more about the gospel and follow the Savior. As we were teaching her we asked her how much love do you have for the Savior? She said she loved Him so much, with all her heart. We then asked to her read John 14:15, which says, "If ye love me, keep my commandments.” She looked at us when she finished reading and said thanks and her thank you was full of meaning. We said, “Sister baptism is a commandment. Pray about it and if you receive an answer before Saturday will you be baptized?” And she said, “Yes.” It was very cool.
Me And Carlos Hitching A Ride
Yesterday (Sunday) we had a two branch training meeting. It was amazing. The brother that came up to train is the 2nd counselor in the Mission Presidency. He taught with power and authority. It was a very good experience. After he talked with the two branches he talked with the branch presidencies. He talked about his mission and he said he baptized 13-14 people a month. He said this, “Your success isn’t by the numbers; it’s by the chosen, the prepared who you worked to find. That’s your success. The question you need to ask did you find those people that were ready for you.” It helped me realize that I don’t teach investigators, I teach children of God. Who have real challenges, real feelings, real dreams, they have real trials, real lives. I teach daughters and sons of God. I can’t see them as investigators; I must see them as children of God. These children are not just a stat at the end of every day; they are children trying to listen to the good Shepherd’s voice. So don’t see your friends or even family members who don’t have the gospel just as people. See them as children of God who need to come back to their Father. Share with them that their loving Father in Heaven, who loves them so much, sent His perfect Son, Jesus Christ, to teach us a better way to live. And the greatest gift Jesus gave to us was His life. He paid the price for our sins, died on the cross, and rose from the dead—providing a way for each one of us to return and live with our Heavenly Father someday. He is waiting for our return back to His presence to embrace each one of us. So go and share the gospel with God’s children. It’s our duty as members of the church of Jesus Christ.

Chicken Foot, Promises And General Conference

My One And Only Chicken Foot
Pot Of Chicken Feet-Tasty
I did it! I ate a chicken foot! It didn’t taste too bad. Yep it tasted like chicken (haha). Also this week I was a model, photographer, a goalie box in the street and a tree. I love playing with the little kids and I just love them so much.
Pure Love And Happiness
This week blew by, it went by so fast. On Wednesday we had zone conference. Just a side note when we were coming back from zone conference the tire on the bus blew up and it was shredded! At first it sounded like gun shots but a few seconds later I could smell the rubber and knew it wasn’t gun shots. It was a bit freaky.
Taking The Bus Always Bring Excitement
Anyway it was the best zone conference ever! The zone leaders set up the pre mortal life and then talked about it. They asked to picture your best friend on earth. Now try to visualize your best friend from the pre mortal life and how you did everything with this person. You fought side by side with him against Satan. You would do anything for each other and both of you were with each other all the time. Then both of receive your calls to go to earth. Your call says you will have the gospel. You look at your best friend and he has tears in his eyes and his heart is broken, he will not have the blessings of the gospel. You look at him and you embrace him. He says to you find me and teach me. You promise you will, you promise you will search the entire world for him. It is time and the two of you go to earth. Then the zone leaders said, “You elders have promised people here to find them, so find them and bring them back.” It really made you think and realize that promises were made. It was amazing!
Peace Out!
My Latest Artwork
Once again the power/lights went out, they went out on Thursday. They came back on Thursday night but went out again during the night. So on Friday morning I prayed for light, I prayed we would have power to watch General Conference so the branch could watch it. I felt that there would be power and we could all watch together. The Lord answered differently, we didn’t get power in the church, He answered with a generator in an internet café. On Saturday and Sunday I was in an internet café watching General Conference. It was so hectic because no power means all the kids in school are at the internet café and all of them are using the computers for homework, what I mean by homework is YouTube, Facebook and other garbage. I was able to watch almost every session except for the Priesthood session because the internet café closes at six on Saturday night. And I was able to watch some of the Sunday morning session because that was when all the kids were doing their “homework.” To be honest I was beyond frustrated. I was able to watch President Monson’s talk and realized I didn’t wait with love. Another great lesson I learned. Conference was amazing. Saturday morning I woke up with a smile on my face and felt like a little kid on Christmas day, the gifts would be of eternal value and not forgotten. I was so excited to learn from President Monson, the apostles and disciples. When I was watching Conference I caught a theme, the theme of building a foundation that is solid and secure. Helaman 5:12, “And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.” A foundation of protecting families, a foundation of truthfulness of the Book Of Mormon, and a foundation that is solid and secure to protect ourselves and our families against Satan’s world winds. As I was taking notes I realized almost all my notes were for the sons and daughters of God we are teaching. It is amazing to see how the Lord directs your paths. There is no doubt He knows the needs of each and every one of us. I want to share a few things I learned from the talks that were given. I loved the talk based on what were you thinking by Elder W. Craig Zwick. I loved how he taught we need to communicate in a language of compassion. His words are profound and powerful, “The willingness to see through each other’s eyes will transform corrupt communication into minister[ing] grace.” I also truly loved Sister Linda S. Reeves talk. Her talk touched my heart so much as she taught about protecting the family and having a Christ focused home. “We talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, [and] we prophesy of Christ … that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.” I was also grateful that she taught about the husband and wife becoming one, “[no] other interest [or] person [or] thing shall ever take precedence over the companion spouse.” I also loved Elder Christofferson’s talk on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Elder Marcos A. Aidukaitis talked impacted me so much. His talk truly made me want to study the Book Of Mormon with more sincerity and real intent. Just like Alma and the sons of Mosiah, “They had searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God. But this is not all; they had given themselves to much prayer, and fasting; therefore they had the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation.” I want to focus on Elder Holland’s talk for a bit. His talk was so different for me, it intrigued me. He made my mind spin, he made me reflect and ask did I really defend the faith in my past, did I stand up when others didn’t, did I always stand up for Christ? Sometimes I can say yes and there are times I can say no. In Elder Holland’s words, “You may wonder if it is worth it to take a courageous moral stand in high school or to go on a mission only to have your most cherished beliefs reviled or to strive against much in society that sometimes ridicules a life of religious devotion. Yes, it is worth it.” I know it is worth it! I also loved how he said CHARITY can CHANGE the world. In this world we need a lot more love and charity. We can find strength in Elder Holland’s words, “Be strong. Live the gospel faithfully even if others around you don’t live it at all. Defend your beliefs with courtesy and with compassion, but defend them. In courageously pursuing such a course, you will forge unshakable faith, you will find safety against ill winds that blow, even shafts in the whirlwind, and you will feel the rock-like strength of our Redeemer, upon whom if you build your unflagging discipleship, you cannot fall.” I have to say President Monson’s talk about love was great especially the lesson I learned in internet café on a Sunday morning. We need to ask ourselves do serve with love? Always remember his words, “As we arise each morning, let us determine to respond with love and kindness to whatever might come our way.” As I keep thinking about conference I think about Helaman 5:12. Is Christ are rock and redeemer in our life? Are our roots planted deeply in Christ? As the gospel increases in the world so will Satan’s attacks and they will become more fierce. How do we make our roots deeper in Christ, READ THE BOOK OF MORMON! I am going to read and study with more intent the Book Of Mormon an hour each day to strengthen my roots and testimony. I loved this Conference. It was truly amazing. I constantly see Satan attacks and I see how he gets a hold of the hearts of the sons and daughters of God. So many just want to talk of being a believer but really don’t follow Christ. They say it is too hard. Remember this is our 4 Minutes and our TIME is NOW!!!!! You cannot fail with Christ on your side. Stay strong and study the scriptures, especially the Book Of Mormon. I love you all!

Teaching Experiences And The Bread Of Life

Traveling To Ixtahuacan
Selfie In Camoja Huehuetanango
Ok where to start. First off I am way sick. My voice is almost gone. It is terrible, every time I talk to my comp I have to whisper. The heat makes things worse. It is what it is. So I almost a chicken foot but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. We also traveled to San Miguel Ixtahuacan for our three interview with President Bautista.
Smile Elders
Typical Guatemalan Market
Every morning during personal study time I have a film session. I watch The District. I watch to see what they did great and what they could improve when teaching lessons to their investigators. I also watch for teaching tips and see how I can improve. I have learned I need to ask more inspired question from Heavenly Father, He is the one that knows His children that we are teaching. After each film session I practice. At first it was a little weird because I’m talking to a balloon or a chair or nothing. I know it has helped. In my first real lesson after doing this my goal was just ask inspired question and LISTEN BY THE SPIRIT and YOUR HEART. I did and I truly asked questions from heaven. The spirit was so strong, it was amazing. I asked questions that were pretty deep but it truly helped us and our investigator to truly understand what we needed to do to help her and to become more aware of her needs. We learned that she was taught to respect all religions. We also learned that God is important to her and that the things we are teaching her are new and at times hard to understand. As we were closing the lesson I felt deeply impressed to have the closing prayer on our knees. She offered the prayer and asked what church is true and what Thy will is for her. It was a powerful prayer. After the prayer I promised her that she will know these things for herself like we (my comp and I) know these things to be true. I also promised her that she will know for herself that Christ lives and is her Savior and Redeemer. It truly was amazing experience. Then in another lesson with a different investigator I experienced another amazing experience. We started by asking her what she had learned from the pamphlet we left her. She shared with us what she learned. We then asked if she had any questions. She told us yes and asked how you know the things I read are true and how do really know that you have a prophet. I was guided by the spirit as I answered her questions. I shared with her that we know this things are true by something simple; prayer, prayer is our communication with our Father in Heaven. You ask Heavenly Father if it is true. I told her we have the promise that ‘if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.’ We then discussed Christ’s life and somewhat of the apostasy. As I was listening she kept referring to that all churches say they are true. I said, “Sister I understand your confusion with so many churches saying they have the truth. If you seek this knowledge ‘with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ,’ I promise that you will receive an answer. You will receive the truth that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. Let’s read from the Bible in Luke 10:1, this teaches that the Lord called others to assist in sharing his word and they went out teaching 2 by 2. In Matthew 18:16 we read, ‘that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ We are witnesses that this is the true church.” I asked her if she knew for a surety that her church was true. She said, “I know my church isn’t true, I believe that none are true.” I again told her if you seek this knowledge ‘with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ,’ I promise that you will receive an answer. Then I shared my testimony. It was a sweet lesson. 
The Big City Of Camoja
I Miss The Tut Tuts
Yesterday I taught Sunday school. The lesson was about manna and the Ten Commandments. I focused on the manna, the bread of life. I started with water, when Moses was instructed by the Lord to smote the rock to receive water to satisfy the children of Israel thirst. I then asked what the symbol of water is spiritually. I read that it is the love of God. I asked what are some ways that God shows his love for us. The class shared great answers. I taught that the water is the blood of Christ that was shed for us; and that is the pure love of God. Then I talked about the manna and I gave them bread. I shared that by providing manna, one day at a time, Jesus was trying to teach faith. He was teaching them to trust Him. In essence, the children of Israel had to walk with Him today and trust that He would grant a sufficient amount of food for the next day on the next day, and so on. In that way He could never be too far from their minds and hearts. We also need to ask God for our daily bread, the help to be strong every day. I shared a few thoughts from a CES Fireside given by Elder D. Todd Christofferson, ‘Give Us Our Daily Bread.’ He taught in the Lord’s Prayer is the petition “Give us this day our daily bread” He said, “I believe that we would all readily acknowledge that we have needs each day that we want our Heavenly Father’s help in dealing with. For some, on some days, it is quite literally bread—that is, the food needed to sustain life that day. It could also be the need for spiritual and physical strength. Jesus is teaching us, His disciples, that we should look to God each day for the bread” We need to ask God for our daily bread, the help to be strong every day. Elder Christofferson said, “Above all, remember that we have Him of whom manna was a type and symbol, the very Bread of Life, the Redeemer.” We read in John 6:35, ‘And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.’ I said this is not doctrine in anyway but in my opinion I believe that on our day of judgment Christ will ask us, ‘Did you partake of your bread and water daily?’ I want to say yes Lord, I did. In closing I shared my testimony and then shared Elder Christofferson’s testimony, “I bear you my witness of the living reality of the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ, and of the infinite power and reach of His Atonement. Ultimately, it is His Atonement, His grace, that is our daily bread. We should seek Him daily, to do His will each day, to become one with Him as He is one with the Father (see John 17:20–23). I bless you that as you seek it from Him, your Heavenly Father will grant you your daily bread, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”
Yep, This Is How We Get Honey
Just Because
That lesson was a miracle in my eyes because I was so sick and to top it off I was losing my voice.  I asked Heavenly Father to bless me with the strength and energy to give this lesson and that my voice will be strengthened and I would not lose my voice completely. My prayer was answered. I never once felt sick and my voice got stronger and stronger every time I spoke. I know that Jesus Christ is the bread of life and that by drinking his water and eating his bread we will never be hungry or thirst and we will receive eternal life. It is my prayer that we partake of our bread daily.

“An old proverb says that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, so watch your step.” Elder Holland
