Much To Do in Pescadero

Todos Santos

2 Nephi 28:30 For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have.

This is such a great scripture! This is a wonderful promise from above to His children who hearken unto His precepts. That word hearken is a verb that means listen. Not only hear His words but we have to respond and act according to what He tells us. His counsels are good. He knows what is best for us. I know that if we do this, we will learn wisdom. We will be blessed with a knowledge and testimony through the promptings of the Holy Ghost. Teaching this promise to our investigators gives them hope for a better life because they will know what to do when they don't know what to do. Our Heavenly Father is willing to lead and guide us, all we have to do is hearken to His word (through the living prophets, Book of Mormon, Bible, prayer, etc.) and obey!


This was a pretty crazy week! There's so much to do here in Pescadero. I love being in this small pueblo and seeing the progress in the branch. In 2009 is when they first put missionaries here in Pescadero and now we are seeing progress due the past and present efforts to establish God's kingdom.

Basically we are branch leaders of Pescadero. We are the first and second counselors to the Branch President, we help count tithing, we are branch mission leader, we teach seminary, we do home and visiting teaching, we set up, pass, and bless the Sacrament, we choose and direct the hymns, we give talks and family home evenings. We have lots of responsibilities! And then we have all of our other missionary responsibilities to take care of. It's a little stressful at times but I know that I was prepared to come to Pescadero and be a light for others to follow.
Lights went out in the whole town- so we ate by candlelight

It's been fun being district leader! I enjoy watching over and taking care of the sister missionaries in my district. Each one of them are great servants of the Lord and giving my training meetings has been a fun job as well.

This last week we had splits with the Zone Leaders, Elder Escalante and Elder Tapia! They are fun and such good examples to me. We then returned back to Pescadero and we worked in our area and had good success! We are in the process of helping a couple be married so they can be baptized. It's a long process haha. We were able to put a baptismal date for their nephew, Hector for May.

We had an awesome activity on Saturday in which we invited lots of people in Pescadero to the church and we gave them clothes, food, cake, and toys for the kids. It was fun to see the smile on each of their faces. Some members from Los Cabos San Lucas came down and helped with that and it was great success! We are now going to teach some new investigators that attended.

We now have bikes! We had to buy them with our own money but we now have a way to move faster to visit people.

Hope everyone has a great week! Adios!
