Week 73: Memories!


Houston 3 is definitely the best area ever!

Good morning family and friends! This week was amazing! We were stuffed with food and the spirit! It was amazing! So first things first, we are back into a trio! Elder Fong came back to H3, and my new companion is Elder Pigott, he is originally from Columbia, but moved to Hawaii when he was 8, so he is a Hawaiian Hispanic! It's been great! We have been rocking it! Elder Pigott only has a couple transfers left in his mission so we've been making every second count! So this week we definitely had some great highlights, and I'm excited to tell y'all all the memories we made!

↑ Photo 1: I had to say goodbye to an amazing sister, Sister Soto. She's the one that Kyle Whimpey baptized in California! So we snagged a photo of the Woodlands crew before she left!

↑ Photo 2: On Thursday we did the turkey bowl and we woke up at 5:30 in the morning to go play! Here is Elder Pigott and I right out of bed!


↑ Photo 3: After the turkey bowl we took a picture with everyone! I was so tired afterwards, but it was a lot of fun!


↕ Photo 4 And 5: Go together! We ate thanksgiving at the Flores house first, and they had an amazing back yard! This was a bunch of bananas from their banana tree! And then this was the family! Then we went and had two more meals that night, so we were stuffed.




↑ Photo 6: This is the new district! For District Meeting I centered the message on the new Christmas video and we talked about how we can light the world! We talked a lot about how we can share this video with people, and it was a really inspiring meeting! I invite y'all to watch it! In Spanish it's called ilumina el mundo! And I'm so excited to go out and light the world! (Mormon.org)

↑ Photo 8: This is at the Robles house! He is our ward mission leader, and his nephews are becoming interested in the gospel! Their names are Steven and David! Steven is 14 and David is 9! They have both expressed their desires to be baptized and we set two dates with them on December 10th! That's now 4 baptisms that we are going  to be having in December! It's going to be absolutely incredible! It is definitely going to be a white Christmas! 


↑ Photo 9: Yesterday we had a charla fogenero (fireside). It was for the youth in our ward, and it was super powerful! Our mission leader set it up and the goal for the charla was to inspire the youth to go on a mission! So all the missionaries in our ward shared their experiences in preparing for a mission! The spirit was powerful, as each missionary shared how they were able to make the decision to serve!

Oh how grateful I am to serve a mission! There is no greater joy than helping people in their lives come closer to their Savior! I also invite y'all to work hard on giving yourselves to our Heavenly Father, and going out and serving your fellowmen! I love this work! The church of Jesus Christ is true! I know our Savior atoned for our sins because of the infinite love that He has for every single one of us (2 Nephi 26:23-24)! I love you all! Make it a great week! 

Love, Elder Heiner
