Missionary Retreat, Baptism, and Flood

February 23, 2015

This week was amazing! A lot happened in this week! On Thursday we watched the movie Meet the Mormons with all of the missionaries in the Zone! It was an awesome movie! All of the missionaries were crying when they saw the missionary saying goodbye to his family, even I cried a little. After the movie my companion and I went to the Paz with President and Sister Velez and his Assistents, on the way we stopped by Hotel California and took pictures with President and his Assistents! I found out the one of the Sister Leaders in our Zone, Hermana Peterson was also in the singing group Tavaci! I couldn´t believe it and she couldn´t believe it, it was cool. We stay in a really nice hotel called ONE, I slept like a baby in the cozy bed and then we ate a delicious free breakfast in the hotel. The Meeting was amazing with the President, his wife, and the Assistents! Our lesson went really well and everyone liked it and said really liked it! The lesson wasn´t to President, it was to other Zone Leaders and a Sister Missionary Leader of Los Cabos(Hermana Peterson). We had to wait for the bus to go back to Los Cabos for a few hours. We didn´t get home until about 10:15 pm. Then on Saturday we had a baptism of Susana! It was a really special baptism, when I saw her dressed in white, the Spirit just hit me very hard! I love the Gospel! I love watching others accept the Gospel and making covenants with our Heavenly Father and preparing them to return to live with Him! She was confirmed a member on Sunday and I could see a big light and smile on her face in this process! She is going to be such an awesome member and I am really excited for her and to see her fulfill her potencial that she has! That sounds it was a fun church activity that you guys had. It sounds like the family is doing really well, I will pray a lot for Grandpa Robinette.
Love, Elder Cannon

 This week went really well for our Zone, we actually broke a record in our Zone for the amount of baptisms that we had in February! That is cool and makes us look good.  Tomorrow, March 3, 2015 I will officially have 23 months on the Mission, that sounds like an extremely long time, but it doesn´t seem like I have been gone for that long. I am grateful that I still have 8 weeks left on my Mission. We gave the Zone Meeting this Tuesday, it went really well! I really like teaching and training other missionaries, it was the first time that my companion Elder Hymas had given a Zone Meeting before, and he did a really good job. Something really funny that happened this week, we have a washing machine in our house. The other Elders that live above us wanted to wash their clothes, they turned on the water and there was no water left. They left the valve on, we left the house and while we were contacting somebody in the street we received a phone call that our house was flooding, my companion and I immediately sprinted to the house and we started taking out all of the water, it took a while and all of the neighbors were looking at us kind of strangely, but that is okay, all is well now. The entire house had about two inches of water in it. This week was a fun adventure and I am sure that the next week will be as well. Thanks for your letter, I am really glad to hear that all is well back home and that life is good! I love you!

Some kind of missionary "commemoration" for Elder Cannon's 23rd month mark?!??

  2. Nothing is impossible with community. Yes, that includes resolving the flooding that has occurred on your house. Floods might seem like a grim inevitablity that no one can escape, but nothing that a thousand hands cannot contain, plus all the necessary technologies that are on standby. In any way, I'm glad that everything has worked out for you! Thanks for sharing that! All the best!
