I love the Mission!

Los Cabos is a cool area.  It has a lot more money than Villa Union. I don´t want to buy anything because everything is so expensive. It reminds a lot of the United States. I definitely feel a lot more pressure as a Zone Leader, but I know that it will help me to push myself to be a better missionary. It is a lot to take in, but I know that it will help me grow and progress. We are working very hard Elder Cano and I! The best thing happened, Saturday night.  I received a call from Villa Union.  It was Alicia(the investigador that Elder Tapia and I taught).  She had just gotten baptized and she expressed how happy she was and how grateful she was that we helped her come to know the Gospel.  She also asked when I was coming back. It was a very special experience for me.  A spirit of peace entered into my heart. I love the Mission for the experiences that happen, even though I wasn´t able to attend the baptism, it was special being a part of her conversion process! It is so good to hear from you guys, I wish you the best, I miss you guys and I know that the Lord is blessing and protecting you guys. Have a great WEEK! I love you guys so much!

Transfer to Los Cabos (San Lucas)

We had a really good amount of investigadors attend the stake conference.  The speaker was a Seventy whose name is Moroni(I don´t remember his last name).  He spoke with so much power.  He is like a mexican version of Elder Holland. Villa Union should be having a baptism next week.  I would love to be there, but I know that God needs me here.  The transfers came in and I am going to Los Cabos(San Lucas) as a Zone Leader! My companion´s name is Elder Cano.  He is really cool.  He is from Pachuca. There were a few problems in the past transfer, Elder Cano became Zone Leader for the last two weeks of the last transfer. He doesn´t know the area that well.  He has been a Zone Leader for two weeks, we are both brand new Zone Leaders.   I feel like we will learn and grow a lot together. We got on a bus at 10 pm, we arrived at Culiacan at about 1:30 am, we woke up at 5 am to get ready for our flight that left at 7 am. Our flight arrived to La Paz, then we got on a bus for 2 hours to arrive to San Lucas. I am pretty exhausted and I will sleep like a baby this night.

I am going to miss Villa Union a lot.  I love the people here, but I know that I need to move on and there are other people that I need to help. It was so hard to say good bye to all of the members, converts, and investigadors. I was crying a little bit.  That is the hardest part of the Mission, leaving your area. It was so hard seeing others bawling because I was leaving.  It touched my heart so strongly that this is where God needs me to be. Our area seems like it is struggling a lot, we have a lot to do here and I am pumped to get her done in this Ward so that the Work will grow.

Day of the Dead

That sounds like you guys had a fun Halloween, and that Isaac and his friends got scared pretty good. My week went really well! On the day of the dead our whole zone went to the cemetary to contact for a few hours! It went very well and it was successful! The attendance this Sunday was 49! Our investigador Ronaldo got baptized this Friday, I was  so happy for him, he looked so happy on Sunday when he got confirmed, and looked really cute with his white shirt and tie. The weather is finally started to cool down a little bit and it feels so much better. This transfer went by so fast, in one more week it is over. I would love to stay another transfer, but I feel like I am shipping out, but I hope not. Next week we will have a stake conference, we are all excited for that! Life is really good right now, I couldn´t ask for anything more. Life is a Happy Song! I love the people here in Villa Union, it is the saddest thought ever of having to leave them some day. There are so friendly and kind. Have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Elder Cannon
