This week in Los Angeles...

Things that happened this week:

~ We saw a movie being made! We tried to be sneaky and see what it was, but the set was well-guarded with security. Bummer. I'm still super happy, because it was secretly a mission goal of mine to see a movie being made. Check.

~ Hermana Mocellin and I are parallel parking CHAMPS. See attached photo.

~ Speaking of parking... I am getting very good at it , but only because I have no choice but to be good at it. Parking is the WORST here.


~ We moved apartments!
Everything went smoothly.
Until.
We got to the new building and found that the elevator had been shut off for the night.
We live on the third floor.
We all got quite the workout that day.

~ Next Monday is transfers. I will know I am staying in Hollywood or not. I would like to say that since I just got here I will probably stay, but I have had a very un-common experience with transfers and I give up on guessing :) Dios sabe.

Hermana Mocellin and I have been completely overwhelmed by how much regular missionary work + extra missionary work (like putting up flyers for our English class we teach) + other work (like moving and meetings) we have had to do this 1/2 transfer. It's been mega stressful, BUT we have seen some amazing things happen as we keep trying..

One day, nothing was going right. We took 15 minutes to find a parking spot, and the parking spot we find was BARELY big enough. We tried to park.. and it just wasn't working. A random person driving by literally stopped driving to laugh at us. Ruuuude. But then got out of his truck and said "Here, let me help you" and he proceeded to tell me exactly how to get into the really tight parking space. We talked to him, and it turns out he had almost gotten baptized in El Salvador, but then moved here! We found a former investigator with a baptismal date because he pulled over to laugh and us and help us park... :)
AND THEN. Five minutes later, on the way to the appointment we were late to, we ran into an investigator who we haven't been able to contact since August. Los Angeles is a really big place, so it is amazing that we found him just randomly walking one day. 
AND THEN. After the appointment, we spoke with a woman. What we said and asked her touched her heart, and she just started crying in front of us.


Sometimes things don't go as planned, but there is a reason for everything. On my mission I have learned that there is absolutely no such thing as coincidences.

  1. "Lo que pasa combiene" I never liked the parking rule, my companions were great at parking, they didn't need my help, but I did it even under the rain. You are incredible!

  2. I want to testify that my wife is back after a Divorce !!!

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in Texas,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back.
