Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ 6/19/17 ~ Mission Memories!











LOOK WHAT I FOUND! :)

Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ 6/19/17 ~ Full of Divisiones...

This week was a week full of divisiones. I like divisiones but they are kind of tiring sometimes and it makes it hard to plan, but it helps us to have new investigators in the area. We did divisiones with the Elderes of Pinos and it was lots of fun because they are both really new in the mission so they have lots of energy and still arent accustomed to everything.  

On thursday we had our interviews with presidente Ruiz, and he practically told me that im going to have transfers this week. He asked me how much time i had in the area and when i told him 6 months, he said well i think its time then unless you really feel differently about it.... so we will see what happens this week:) He also asked me how much time I have in the mission and when i told him 19 months he said wow its the last sprint then:)

On Friday we had our 8 principles meeting and it was really cool because for the first time in like 4 tranfers my companion and I didnt have to prepare anything! We just showed up and had fun teaching:) We then went and did divisiones with the assistents afterwards and I went with Elder Mordasini. He only has a year and its his second transfer as assistent! 

On Saturday we ate lunch with Olaf, Dulce, and their two sons. They are one of our best investigator families and we made sushi with them and it was so fun! It was really good and was a great mission experience:)

Last night we ate dinner with Rommel and I am really gonna miss him and his wife Brenda! I am so grateful for the people that i have met and I know I will always treasure these memories.

Love you guys tons

Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ 6/12/17 ~ Global Warming is Real

Hi family!!! I think I can officially say that my eyebrows are three different colors from so much sun here!! This week was a good, but challenging week. The biggest struggle in the mission is finding new investigators and now that we have contacted the better part of our area sometimes its difficult to find new investigators but somehow we always do:) 

On Thursday I had to teach an english class and its honestly really hard to teach a language. One of the investigators of the sisters of our zona is some sort of metafisica psychologist that is pretty cocky but knows a lot of english and kept wanting to say weird sentencies like ¨before being born we were entities of light¨ and i was like uhuhh yeah sure:P  we also ate tacos afterwards in some taco stand of a member that lives close by, and I tried tacos de cabeza.. not my favorite but not bad either.

On Friday we had a lesson at night with a partial family who the husband is a chef, and a member of like 15 years who has been inactive, and his wife is catholic but very receptive. They want to one day get married in the temple and we are working with them but they dont show up to sacrament meeting:( We showed up to teach them but we had to go to the mother in laws house because it was her birthday and they were over there. When they invited us in we realized that if it hadnt been for the fact that we know them we never would be able to get into a house like that. It had a library and a bunch of catholic statues. Rich and catholic usually dont let us in but this was the exception hahhaa:P

I hope you guys are doing great and I love you tons! Happy Father´s Day Dad love you tons and Ill be there to celebrate our birthday!

Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ 6/5/17 ~ 19 Months!







This week seems to have passed by super fast also, and I honestly have a hard time remembering all the stuff that happens now hahhaa. We have had success this week working with a family in the Terranova area that came to a cake activity that we did with the ward where the investigators judged the cakes, and then they showed up to sacrament meeting and also a stake choir event! We had a lidership meeting this friday and we were super tired because it started at 9 and ended at like 3 in the afternoon and we just barely had time to go eat in our area and then go to do some baptismal interviews in Pinos. The family that was going to get baptized was going to be baptized by the dad who just got baptized a few weeks ago, and the dad was sick and so they wanted to postpone the baptism. I didnt really want that to happen because I know that Satan works really hard to make situations happen so that people dont get baptized, so we invited them to say a prayer with us and ask Heavenly Father if they should get baptized. We prayed and waited a few minutes and talked with them, and they all strongly felt that they should stick with the baptismal date. It was a very rewarding experience. 

Last night we had a misionary activity at a stake level and we had around 15 investigators that came!! It was a great activity and I hope we can keep working this change to make some miracles happen.

Love you all tons,
