Seeing Little Miracles - Mon 7/9/2018, 4:01 PM

Dear friends and family,
This week was kind of slow, but we managed to see a lot of little miracles. 
One of them was that our recent convert, m., had his family go out of town and leave him here in San Luis for the week. He got to church early and was dressed in a white shirt in order to pass the sacrament. It was really cool to be able to see that he feels a dedication and a responsibility to help everyone in what he can.
It was a really good week.
I know that the church is true!

Just singing in the rain! - Mon 7/2/2018, 4:30 PM

Elder Perez and yo.

Dear friends and family,
The weather got realy crazy this last week. It started off with just a ton of cloud bursts, and in Saturday, we went to our house to do our language study, and we walked out to go to an appointment. It was nice and sunny for about thirty seconds, and then it started to rain really hard. It was super cool, as in cold, but the investigator didn't have a phone so we decided to go and see him anyway.
So to liven things up I started to sing.... and pray really hard that the investigator would be in his house. And the good news is that he was! We taught him the Resturation and he really understood the Great Apostsy. It was a hughe blessing to have that lesson.
I love the mission and I know that the church is true!

some pretty good selfies.... haha

Companionship exchanges

Dear friends and family,
This last week has really just kind of flown by. 
Elder Perez and I had a pretty good week. We had some companionship exchanges with our district leader and we got to help them drain the baptismal font.
The pump wasn't working so we did it by hand. I wish I had had my camera. But we got done, and our district leader looks at us and says, "So we learned that the missionary work goes faster when we all work together as a team, right?" Then we went to find some new people to teach.
I love the Church and I love the Gospel.
I know that it is true!

yes!!! - Mon 6/18/2018, 4:35 PM

Dear friends and family,
One of the families that we have been teaching this last week wasn't ready... the divorce proccess got a little set back so they couldn't get married. 
But, we talked to the parents, and we prayed and got permision from the parents to baptize their two children. It really got the whole family super excited. It was kind of a miracle.
The Church is the Church of God. The Book of Mormon is true. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and He guides the Church through a living prophet today!
How grateful I am to be able to share that. 
God Loves YOU!
Elder DuBose
p.s. The baptism!!

A really good week! - Mon 6/11/2018, 4:11 PM

Dear friends and family,
This week has been really awesome! Elder Perez has a really good testimony and is super excited to get out and just start teaching some people.
We had the chance to give some blessings to some investigators and that was something that is really exciting. So, we gave all of them blessings and then one of their little kids came up to us after and said, thank you brothers, you really help out our family.
That really touched my heart. It was really nice.
The Church is true!

p.s. mega tortas. Good stuff.

A little bit of a shock... - Wed 6/6/2018, 4:14 PM

Dear friends and family,
This last Sunday, Elder Hernandez and I were sleeping when we got a call from the zone leaders and they told us that Elder Hernandez was getting transfered. 
That was nerve wracking. Then, he passed me the phone, and I heard my zone leader say, "And Elder DuBose... you have to be in the bus station a 7 tomorrow. You will be heading to Aguascalients to recieve your new trainee."
So I spent the last two days in Aguascalientes and I have a new, new companion. Elder Perez from Guatemala. It should be an awesome transfer cycle. 
I love you guys and I know that the Church is true!

It has gotten really hot. - Mon 5/28/2018, 1:57 PM

Dear friends and family,
It stoped raining.... and there are no clouds in the sky, so summer must be here again. It has gotten really hot, and the good thing is that it makes it easier to find people.
Not a lot of people will tell you no when you look like you are dying of heat. Haha.
But, it has been a really good week. One of the miracles that we saw this week was that an investigator that we have been teaching (B) has been really having some struggles coming to church. He is part of a band and Saturday night is when they go to perform. He loves the Gospel, but his band makes it kind of hard to get up for our 8 oclock church session.
But, we talked to him on the phone a few times this week and had a really powerful lesson about repentance and the word of wisdom, and he left his band early so that he could get up on time to come to church. it was really awesome!
It reminds me of a quote by president Boyd K. Packer that says, True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior. The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than study of behavior will improve behavior.
And it is true. If you want to change, The Lord will help you with that, but you need to do your part. Study out the doctrine, and ask if it is true. If you do that, you will change. And you will change quicker and permantly. That is the power of the doctrine of Christ.
I love you guys!
Elder DuBose
p.s. We took some pretty good pictures right before we got to the compueters. Haha.
p.p.s. We made quesadillas and I put some hot sauce on mine. Blew my companion´s mind. Haha. The pictures are a little blurry, but that is alright. I think it captures the excitment that he felt. Haha
