Chikunguna

Hello Family and Friends!
This week has been quite the week! i dont have much time so it will have to be short but first off. I got really sick again hahaha. got stuck with chikunguna for a few days which was the worst thing that i have ever experienced in my life, but it left on thursday and i was able to go on divisions with Elder Robinson who is in my old area. It was so awesome!!! One of the families that i taught now has a date for their baptisms. It was so awesome to work with Elder Robinson and to learn from him. We had an awesome day and were able to see a lot of success. Also while i was sick i went through a fase where i was hearing everyone wrong. so one night we had dinner in our house. The lady next door is a member and gave us our food to eat. i ate my food but my comp hadnt eaten his food yet, but we had to go to the church to drop off the keys and so he said in spanish put my food in the bag so that the rats wont eat it. but i thought he said put my food in the bag so that the rats can eat it so i put it outside so that the rats could eat it and he looked at me and was like what in the world are you doing. It was so bad because he got so mad. hahah but the next morning he burst out laughing and was like poor chele chikunguna has messed with your head. Also this week we went to get to know some of the investigators of some of the missionaries in our zona and had some really powerful lessons that helped them to make the decision to get baptised this past saturday. Perla and Omar are doing awesome. Their son went to church tambien. we are just hoping that they can get the papers so that they can get married and baptised this weekend. please pray for them this week. okay well love you guys. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING YOU ALL DO!

Military of Nicaragua



Whats up fam and friends?

Well this week was just full of awesomeness and i cant share everything but i will share a few of the things that happened that are just really awesome. First i dont know if i told you guys but this past week is was just a little before 9:30 and we were arriving at our house and this lady called us and told us to come toalk to her. She asked us about who we were and what we taught. we explained a little bit and got her directions and went to her house the next night and we were able to explain a little bit about baptism at the door because she couldnt attend to us at the moment, but we invited her to church. The next morning we went to her house to bring her to church and she began to make excuses of why she couldnt go, but then i told her that if you put the lord first you will be rewarded with blessings this week. She said okay and so we left a little dissapointed. we were sitting in church and not to long after the meeting started. she arrived at church and said that she felt something different and that she needed to go. SO AMAZING. well then this past week we went to her house to teach her with a member and we met her husband who got in a moto accident and cant walk because he has had surgery on just about every part of his body. but we talked about baptism abd invited them to be baptized. they explained that they didnt feel ready but they wanted to learn more. we had a powerful lesson and the stake presidents wife shared a few experienes that were really powerful and she left a liahona for them to read and we left another pamphlet. the next day we arrived and they had read everything and they shared that they loved what they read and the husband said that he wanted us to take him to church on sunday. the next day we arrived at their house but only the lady could listen to us because her husband was in a lot of pain. we sat there and she bought us a coke like always and some cookies haha. we were sitting there and all of a sudden she said ¨i want to get baptized. it became silent and the feeling i just cant explain. we explained that she needs to get married but that if she trusted in the lord she would get baptized this upcoming saturday. After we asked if her husband would like a blessing. he said yes and wowwwwww The lord lives. I cant explain how amazing this experience was but i know that the Lord has given his priesthood authority to bless the lives of others. The lady. well her name is perla came to church again yesterday.  I would like to ask all of you a favor. if you could please pray for Omar and Perla this week that they may able to get married and baptized and that everything goes well that would be AWESOME. also on saturday we got to do a service project with the military of nicaragua. it was awesome!!!! i have photos. we sang oh elders of israel after they sang the national anthem and it was so sick. then we helped gather trash at some lake and it was a good time. And then last night a lady came to the church and asked us if we could go to give her grandpa a blessing who was dying. This experience really hit home to me as the lord was able to help me to know what to say. it was such a special experience. today he passed away and is now resting in peace. Love this work and I love being a missionary. Thanks for everything you guys do and for all your support. love and miss you guys a lot, but will see you guys soon! almost halfway done!!!!! crazy. 

Love, Elder Knight

15 Baptisms

Fam and friends, 

This week was absolutely insane. we were so busy! this week was very special for my comp and i Elder Davidson. Davidson is such an awesome comp and we have been blessed so much in our area. The aps came to work with our zone this week and they helped us so much. our zone has had one of the best weeks ever. Every companionship really worked so hard this week to end the change on a strong note and as a zone we had 15 baptisms this week. The lord has blessed us so much and i have gained such a strong testimony that when we sacrifice something the Lord always blesses us.   This past week we were able to put a ton of fechas, and this week we were able to baptize three of them. Josue maria y valesca. It was so awesome. Josue we have been teaching for a while and he went to all of conference with us. He only has two pairs of pants, two shirts and shoes that are ripped apart. But he is so happy. We took photos and he said look we are famous i cant wait to be a missionary like you guys.  I will never forget his baptism. Our whole zone baptized at one time and it was so amazing. The spirit was so strong and there were so many people to support them. Maria y valesca struggled with some things for a while but baptism is so powerful. They came out of the water as new people, and both expressed that they feel so much better. I know without a doubt that God lives and this is his church and i cant begin to express how grateful i am to be apart of it and serve in his holy work. On sunday they were all confirmed and we gave josue a shirt and tie. He was so happy and as we were walking to church everyone in the street was yelling josue! and were saying look at josue with his shirt and tie! haha Nicaragua is a sacred place and I have seen so many miracles. I love each and every one of you and wish the best for all of you guys. I have awesome photos but i cant send them): so next week!! 

Love, Elder Knight

Fruits of Our Work

Family and Friends,
This week has been pretty crazy. We had such a good week this week. My comp and I have been working this whole change to try to lift up the area that we are working in and at the end of the change we saw the fruits of our work. we had so many powerful lessons this week. I dont have one specific one that i would like to share, but my comp and i put 7. we were talking together one night and we just smiled and we are just so grateful for what the Lord has done for us. I know that the Lord has been with us through the rough patches and has blessed us so much. It hasnt been easy but the Lord has been with us every step of the way. One family inparticular has been struggling a lot with the decision to get married and baptized. I had divisions this week with a new elder name Elder Montesuma. We went to this families house and started the lesson. This lesson was so special. We talked about the importance of families. There three kids are all baptized, but the parents for the longest time have not made the decision. The man has always been tough during lessons but something changed in him. He was talking about how stressed he is and everyhting he wanted for his kids in the future, and was sad that he couldnt provide them with their needs. The 5 of them live in a room smaller than many of your bedrooms. my comp who has only been out a few weeks pulled out a picture of his family and bore the strongest testimony. His heart was softened. The gospel blesses families. He was able to understand the promises that the Lord is so ready to fulfill if we just do our part. We put a baptism date for the 18th of this month and he was uneasy but accepted the invitation for us to prepare him and his soon to be wife(: for this date. I love how the spirit works and the plan that God has for all his children. They were able to understand that this gospel will bless their lives. Also conference was awesome and I could understand this time!!! hahahah. so powerful and i hope you all were able to listen and to feel of the spirit. We were all so excited to see if they would announce a temple here in Nicaragua, but soon!! haha  Also my comp and i killed 3 rats this week in our house. it was crazy broke two brooms in the process. also we were ending divisions this week and so there were 6 elders in one house as we were packing up our things and changing to our normal comps. my buddy elder ward has a closed can filled with bugs of all kinds that they have killed. If you open it you die because it smells so bad. one of the elders fell asleep and so we opened it right next to his face and well he woke up , but the smell filled the room in 2 seconds and we all ran out throwing up haha! Love you all you guys are awesome. We will see next monday if i Leave managua or if i will stay another change hahah. Love you all to death and hope you all had a wonderful easter! till next monday!
