Please Open The Screen Window

So this week went well. Wanted to share some expirences with you guys. One was on exchanges with my son(Elder Phillipsen). So we went to go see there investigator and he is a little different. For example: We walked to his Back door and there was a dead Musk rat right in front of his door. So we knocked and tried to see him and nothing. So we decided to walk and we saw him coming our way. We talked to him and got to know him. Now this Investigator will believe anything he hears. We asked him why there was a dead musk rat at his door. He said it was to protect his house from something. He also told us that he thinks the Coyotes think of him as his pack leader and that the Pack leader gets the first big meal. So we go up stairs and we teach him the Word Of Wisdom. now at this time we'll just say he wasen't living it. We told him the first step is to get rid of the Coffee that he had(recently just bought this cup of coffee). So he said" i just bought it i don't want to waste it". So we said hey we will go buy you a big thing of juice if you get rid of that right now,"deal" throw coffee out the window and dosen't put up the screen or puts it down the drain he just straight up throws it at the screen. Elder Phillipsen and I were dying that lesson. He also told many different and hilarious things. 

Now to end off with a spiritual note. Elder Coca and i were stopping by to see our Investigator and just to make daily contact. We did and we left, but we decided to go a different way home. Our house was literally 1 minute away. But we went around the other side and contacted. We ended up in the Backyard of a cape Verdean home where there was tons of Cape verdeans and one less active cape verdean that we got her information to go back and see here. We also got the information of some of the other Cape verdeans that were there. I just wanted to testify that the Lord is constantly leading us. Its out choice whether or not we take that guidence.
Love you all

Kennedy's Baptism

Hey everyone! 

So this week was awesome not only for us but for the whole Zone. In total we had 3 confirmations and 4 Baptisms for the whole zone. Its was awesome! and Kennedy got Baptized. We have been working with Kennedy for a few weeks now. We knew that he was prepared from the first time that we  met him. I remember first meeting him and teaching the Restoration to him and his family. He said afterwards " yeah if you guys just stop by here i'll come to church with you". He is gonna get confirmed this next week and hopefully receive the Aaronic priesthood the week after. Now the next promising investigators are Sonia and Joshua. They are a mother and a son who we've been teaching for a couple weeks. They have a date for the 13 of Aug and there solid. We also have Kevin that will hopefully get Baptized that same day. Miracles on Miracles! Besides that we went to Zone conference and Elder Coca and I had to give a training for our zone. We felt the spirit strong and our words were just taken away by the Spirit. We talked about the importance of the scriptures and PMG , and that we can't teach with out the Spirit. We rode down to Zone conference in our brand new Toyota Tacoma! we got a truck ! When we got it ,it had 120 miles on it. Now we don't have to find rides to do exchanges. All toghether this was just a great spirit filled week.

I would like to end with my testimony that I know that we couldn't do anything without the Spirit of the Lord. If we trust in that promise that says D&C 11:21 Seek not to declare my word, but first seek to obtain my word, and then shall your tongue be loosed; then, if you desire, you shall have my Spirit and my word, yea, the power of God unto the convincing of men. I know that this is true first seek the Kingdom of God yourself then the Spirit will give that we you need for the convincing of men and in the bringing of souls to our father. Glory be to the Lord and his mercy upon us the Children of Men.

Love you all

Pawtucket Is Great!

Hey everyone! 
his week was great i can't write very much we have to
go pretty soon. But this last week was fun we went on back to back
exchanges. One with the Spanish elders in our District and the other
was with the APs down in Boston it was super fun! everything is still
the same with our Investigators. Hoping to have a few Baptisms this
Sunday. I'll keep you updated! Pawtucket is great were finding people
everyday. We found a mother with 4 kids last night and taught her the
Restoration. Were hoping to set a date with her soon. Love you all
sorry for the short email. I would just like to end with my testimony
that i know that the Church is true and that we are all children of a
loving heavenly Father who knows us each by name and he wants us to be

Miracles Are Happening Everyday

Hey everyone! 

this week went well. We found a lot of people this week.
Steven is doing great he's gonna get baptized this Sunday. His sister
will hopefully get baptized in a few weeks. Steven is 18 and his
sister is 13. We hope that steven will get the Priesthood and then
Baptize his sister.
So this week we went and taught 2 of our investigators , Zenilda and
her sister Anna. So we taught them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ
and then we went outside and we noticed that someone threw a rock at
our Investigators window and broke into her car and stole her purse.
it was a bad situation. This was the second time this is happened to
her. They took all her papers including her kids papers. Hopefully
they find who took her things.
Yesterday we had a cool expirence where we talked to this guy and he
gave us 3 referrals. So we went over to one of the referrals and
taught her the Restoration. She was dominican so my comp spoke spanish
and i spoke portuguese to her. I got to get going but i know this
Church is true and miracles are happening everyday! love you all!!

Todo Fish?

Hey everyone! 

This last week was another awesome week on the mish. We were really, really busy. We started the week off with an exchange with the Providence Spanish Elders. That day was a day of miracles. Elder Seiniger and i were walking and doing work a lady calls him and talks to him and she said that she wants to get Baptized . We were like no way!!! she said she was Dominican and we were thinking we didn't talk to a Dominican lady today then we look at a missed message from the Providence En elders and they found this girl. I guess this girls Brother is a Bishop in the DR.  Oh i also found 20 bucks on the ground. It paid for our lunch and we gave a Book of Mormon to the server and she said that she would read it and we set a time to go back and see what she learned. I also got to go up to Newport and do an exchange there 2. We did some service went to District meeting and just had a good time doing the Lords work. Oh we also picked up 9 investigators this week and 2 people are getting Baptized this upcoming Sunday. Heavenly Blessings from above😇\
We actually picked up 5-6 of them last night. We tried to stop by one of our Investigators but they weren't home so then we both looked in the direction where a Cape verdian lady was sitting on her porch. My companion said " hey lets walk down this street". We talked to this Cape Verdian lady and then her friends and Family came out and we taught them all. They also all committed to Baptism. I just have a testimony on the still small voice. Their were many times this last week were i just felt guided and i knew i had to go somewhere. The lord will tell us were to go we just have to be in a place where we can hear him.
love you all,
