Awesome! - Mon 12/4/2017, 4:28 PM

And a haircut too!...It was free.

Dear friends and family,
So, things have been picking up this last week. We got some references from some of the members (always a good sign) and we saw some pretty big miracles this week.
This Saturday was amazing, and I feel like I should share one of the biggest miracles that I have seen in my whole mission. So, we have been focusing a lot on fufilling the goals that we place as missionaries (espicially in finding new people). So, it was Saturday and we still had to find like seven people, and we decided to look for potential investigatores, and ... we might have gotten lost. Just then, as we stood on the street cornor looking really lost, a lady came out of her house, and I thought, why not just contact her and ask for help. I choose a name from the list and... she didn't know who the person was, and didn't really want to be contacted. Then, a guy came up to us and said, "The elders!" He asked to come in and we taught him, the lady we were trying to contact and like five other people. 
People are being prepared at all times and God works in wonderfully mysterious ways.
Love you guys!
Elder DuBose
p.s. No pictures this week. Sorry.

Little bit at a time! - Mon 11/27/2017 4:31 PM

The sisters in our district had a baptism

Dear friends and family,
So, how have you been?
This week has been really good.The sisters in our district had a baptism, and that was a really cool expereince. It is incredible to see what the gospel will do to help change people. It can change who they are, and it helps them to become much better than they were.
The Church is true, and it has the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ being taught in it. I know this to be true!
Love you all,
Elder DuBose
p.s. a fun little thing that happened, and we got to play pool today as a district!

A really cool story! - Mon 11/20, 2:32 PM

Dear friends and family,
We went to lunch this week, and the sister (Sister G.) that we were eating with shared a really cool story I would like to share with you guys. 
She served a mission in mexico and she happened to have her sister in law with here in that area. She got the chance to teach her brother and her sister in law, and it was in the time when all of the missionary lessons where memorized. They got to the part about Joseph Smith, and she began to the story of Joseph Smith.
As she began, and throughout the whole lesson, he sister in law had like these bug eyes, and she kept looking at her, and looking around like she was confused. 
At the end of the lesson, Sister G. asked what happened. Her sister in law looked at her and said, "You were not the one speaking in that lesson. I looked at you and I saw a man that I believe was Joseph Smith." Sister G.'s sister in law ended up getting baptized and becoming a faithful member of the church for the rest of her life. 
God is a god of miracles. And Joseph Smith was a prophet!
I love you guys!

Poco a poquito -Mon 11/13, 4:26 PM

Dear friends and family,
A lot has happened this last week. So, the question is where do I begin?
Let my start with my trainee. His name is Elder Lingenbrink and he is from Washington State. He has a grand testimony, and is working really hard right now. We have a lot in common (mainly that we both don't speak Spanish, but we're working on that) and he is so cool.
We went around visitng the members this week just to present ourselves with them and see if there is any way that we can serve them. That worked really well. We got done with a lesson with a member and asked him if he knew one of the people that we were looking for, and he said, "Yeah! Let me take you to them!" And... he did. He introduced us and presented us to another person on the way there. It was super cool. This ward is awesome! (I think it is called Terrazas, but I'm not to sure how you would spell that...)
God is a God of miracles, and if you look for them, you will find all of the miracles, and there are many!
Les amo mucho!
Nos vemos la siguente semana!
Con amor profundo,
Elder DuBose
p.s. My companion is a little tuckered out,

I ain´t afraid of no ghosts. Jaja

Something crazy happened this week... Tue 11/7, 4:14 PM

Elder Lingenbrink and me.

Dear friends, family, and all of you in between,
We celebrated the day of the dead in Zacatecaz this last week. They have two days, the first where they remember the dead children and the last when they remember everyone else. Both days, the kids get dressed up and go ask for candy. Instead of saying like trick or treat, they have to sing a song the goes: El muerto pide camote si no se le cae el bigote. La viuda quiere una ayuda para sus povres criaturas. And, if you don't give them candy, they curse the house.
So, we had transfers this week and... I'm back in San Luis. That was a fun Saturday night. My district leader called and gave me my companions transfers (he stayed in the area) and then told my I might want to sit down. 
To make a long story less long, I'm training a new misionary here in San Luis. His name is Elder Lingenbrink and he is from Washington. Our new area is pretty amazing, and I feel like we are going to have a lot of success.
I know that the church is true, and I love you guys a ton!

p.s. Day of the Dead!

Let me just tell you about MINE adventure! - Mon 10/30, 6:40 PM

Happy Halloween!  Love, District Mineros.

Dear friends and family,

One of our investigators came to a baptismal service this Saturday with us. It was a really cool expereince, and it really strengthened his testimony. It is a wonderful thing to see people willing to make commitments and change their lives.
Today, we also got to go see something called the Mine of Eden. It is an old mine here that they have turned into a tourist attraction! It was awesome!
And... that was about it for this week.
I know that the Church is True!!

A beautiful promise (see the story of Noah in the Bible)
Dear friends and family,
Another week has come and gone super fast, and I just have to say that I'm so grateful to be here. 
It was a really good week. We had companion interchanges this week, and it was an awesome experience! I learned a lot of new stuff and I am so excited to start applying it! One of the hardest things about this area is just finding people to teach, but our district leader came and showed me that it is a lot more simple than I was thinking. Haha.
I know that the Church is true, and I am so happy about the impact that it has had in my life. God knows and loves each one of us, and He is constantly hoping that we will love Him in return!
Keep on being great people!
Elder DuBose
p.s. An awesome miracle!,
