The gospel changes lives!!!

It has been an amazing week down here in Mexico.  Christmas was very special, as I think it always is as a missionary, because we really come to appreciate the birth and mission of the Savior a little bit better.  It was hard to find a computer this morning because everywhere was closed but we finally found one so that I could write you.  It was cool talking to all of you on Christmas!! I am glad to hear that you are doing well and that you had a nice Christmas too.  I hope you enjoy your New Years eve/day. Today we will be working but the mission president wants us to write today because there will not be any computers open tomorrow.  Tonight we are going to eat with a family from the ward, they are pretty cool and it should be really fun. 
The baptism of Julio was amazing!!!! The change that I have seen in him has been amazing.  I know that the Gospel can bring hope into the lives of those who have none.  His baptism went smoothly.  The both of us, Elder Chronister and I had to baptize him as well as help him in and out of the font.  He has changed so much.  When we went to pick him up for Sunday, he was dressed in a nice shirt and sweater, his hair was cut and combed and he had a big smile.  When we got to church and sat down, he got up and went around and shook eveyones hand, it was cool, I like how the gospel can bring such happiness into the lives of our investigators.
We had many awesome experiences this week in arriving at the perfect moment.  We arrived right when one of our investigators had been having troubles with his brother, and afterwards he said that we were sent from God to give him the peace that he needed at that time.  We also went with a recent convert who felt like she is imperfect and that the members of her family don't love her.  Elder Chronister and I are trying as hard as we can to become instruments in the Lords hands and when things like that happen we always feel really good.
The teaching between Elder Chronister and I has been great!! There has been a couple of times when we are teaching and he says what I am thinking or the other way around.  It is super cool when that happens because I know it is by the spirit.  That happened a lot with Elder Rios and I and I am glad that the spirit is working through us now as well.
We had to go to the doctors this week because my companion has an ingrown toenail.  They couldn't cut it because it is infected.  I told him to go to the doctor before but he wouldn't call him because he is afraid of doctors ha ha.
Remember how I told you about our tops we got for Christmas?  Well we have started a top revolution with all the missionaries, almost everyone has them now, ja ja it is pretty funny, I will have to show you all my cool tricks in may.
That is pretty much everything, I love you all and will talk to you next year ja ja.

No time to waste!! (Pics)

Hola, it has been an amazing week here in Mexico.  I have so much to
tell you guys.

Joe bowling with his District

We will start of with Monday.  We went bowling.  I really don't like to
bowl at all but it was fun because we went with the whole district.
My district is super awesome I love it, we have a lot of fun together.

Remember how last year I played the guitar in the Christmas devotional
for the missionaries?  Well, this year I got roped into it again but
this time was super cool because I accompanied Elder Alvarez on the
Piano with our own arrangement of "What Child is This".  It was soooo
awesome!  All of the missionaries loved it and my companion recorded it.  

Joe and Elder Chronister and their baptisms

He said he will post it of facebook in 19 months when he gets
home.  It was so good, that we performed it for the ward fireside and
they liked it so much that we performed it for the stake fireside!  It
was cool.
We had three baptisms Saturday, it was great.  The only thing that
went wrong was that there was no water and that this baptismal font
is 3 times bigger than any other one I have baptized in.  So we were
filling it up with buckets,  It was horrible!! Every time we baptize
more than two people something goes wrong with the baptismal font, but
we were able to fill it up in two hours, and although the water was
cold, it was one of the best baptisms of my mission.  The spirit was
super strong.

We saw a huge miracle this week with an investigator named Julio.  We
were just cruising down the street at a super good missionary pace
because we just have so many people to teach that we don't have time to 
waste.  Well we are going along and a lady starts running after us.  She
wanted us to go talk with her neighbor who is Julio.  Julio has one
leg so he couldn't walk after us.  He talked to the missionaries 3
months ago but they never came to his house.  So he was thinking about
us and said a prayer that he would be able to contact us.  At that
moment we pass in front of the street were he was praying and he sees
us and sends his neighbor to run after us.  He is super awesome! We had an appointment
so we couldn't stay long.  We got his information and we
left a pamphlet with him.  He read it like three times and he came to
church yesterday and loved it!!  Afterwards he told us that he prayed
about the pamphlet we gave him and he felt a huge feeling of happiness
in his heart.  It was super awesome!  I am grateful for the opportunity
we have to help him come closer to God.  He will getting baptized on
the 29th.

I have got more stuff to tell you to about a lot of other miracles,
but I don't have time so I will tell you on the 25th.
I love you all!
Con muchísimo Amor,
Elder Joe Fuell

Pray for my shoes!!

It has been an amazing week here in Iztacalco.  So amazing that we haven't had time for anything other than teaching a ton of people who are super awesome.  I don't even have time to sleep because I teach all night long in my dreams and I wake up feeling exhausted.  But my teaching is getting a ton better for the same reason.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!  I cant believe you are 44 years old, wow, I remember your 30 birthday, time just goes by so quick.  I sent you a card, you will have to let me know when you get it.
I bought new shoes the other day because my other ones had huge holes in the bottom so a bunch of dirt got in my shoes and every night when I got home and took my shoes off, my feet would be black.  It was gross. So I bought new shoes.  They weren't too expensive, but they are super comfortable.  I just am hoping they will last me another 5 months,  please pray for my shoes. 
We have sister missionaries in our district, I have never even seen sister missionaries before in any of the other areas I've been in.  It just kind of tells you about the kind of area we live in, it is crazy. 
This week we taught a lady named Osbe.  She is super cool and her son Luis and Haytami are also way cool.  They are all just awesome.  The husband of Osbe died a while back and we felt prompted to teach her the plan of salvation focusing on the temple work and how families can be sealed together for eternity.  It was perfect.  She will be getting baptized this Saturday.  We have about 11 people planned for baptism this month.  It is just getting crazy!!!  We cant even put any more appointments for this week because we are so booked with appointments until next week. 
I got your package.  Thanks a ton!!! Elder Chronister and I loved the cookies, and I wear the scarf every morning in my personal study because it is super cold in our house.
I love you all a ton and hope you have a great week.
Con Muchísimo Amor,
Elder Joe Fuell

Burger King Delivers?

Wow! it has been a couple of amazing weeks.  Last week was super hectic!! I had the trio (three missionaries together) with Elder Anderson and Elder Diaz and it was fun but super crazy!!!  We worked super hard and played super hard and had a great time.  We celebrated Thanksgiving together it was great.  We were going to buy KFC but they wouldn't deliver to the house because we ordered it from a cell phone (dumb rule). So we called burger king and they brought us a bunch of hamburgers it was great.   I was with them only until Friday night and then I went and stayed in the mission office and helped all the new missionaries come in.  It was really wierd because they didn't know Spanish.  Spanish is like something natural now so it was just weird to see them struggling with it.  But it made me remember when I got here. 
It was super fun in the office.  I know everyone there pretty well so every day there was a party too. And I got some good pictures but my camera is being funny so I will have to send pictures to you guys next week. 
Oh. when I was in the trio we had to go to the doctors because Elder Anderson needed surgery on his ingrown toenail.  Dr. Ruiz let me help him out a bit and I bandaged everything up.  Didn't think I would have a chance to work in surgery in the mission, crazy huh.
This new ward is great!  The name of my ward is Iztacalco...It is the ugliest area of the whole zone or stake that I am in now, but it is 100 times nicer than Iztapalapa and at first I felt weird but now Elder Chronister and I are running at full throttle.  Here in Iztacalco the children play with Ipads at church! In Iztapalapa they had to play with the hymn books because that was all they had.  So, super different but super awesome.
In this last week we have put 6 baptismal dates for this month and we found 12 new investigators.  I am just enjoying myself a ton!  The bishop of the ward is really young, like 26 years old and only has two weeks as bishop, but he is just awesome.  He got up and bore his testimony and everyone was just sobbing because the spirit was so strong.  We have a bunch of people at church more than 150 so that is pretty sweet.
But the best thing of All is my companion Elder Chronister!!  He is a stud.  He is new but he is already great at Spanish, and he is always just excited to work and share his testimony with everyone.  Life is fantastic.  I love you all and hope you have an awesome week.
Con Muchísimo Amor,
Elder Fuell

Short letter! Transferred!!!!

It has been a super great, busy awesome week here in Mexico.  I don't have my preparation day this week and I got to go work so I am just going to write this really fast.  It was a pretty cool week. I was in the trio with Elder Anderson and Elder Diaz and that was so much fun. We celebrated Thanksgiving together but I will have to fill you more in on that next week.  The other half of the week I worked in Coyoacan, the richest area of the mission.  It was pretty wierd but it was cool.  I worked there with the assistants and the secretaries of the mission.  We also had a ton of fun.  but I am most excited for my transfers.  I will be going to Iztacalco!!!!   Yep I am leaving  Iztapalapa for the first time in 18 months.  I will have to fill you in more about Iztapalapa when I get home.  I will not be a zone leader this next change and I am super stoked for all the time that I will have!  I will be with Elder Chronister from Las Vegas.  I don't know him but everyone tells me he is super cool.  He has 5 months in the mission, so this should be pretty dang fun. Thanks for your letter mom, I will write you more next week and let you know whats going on. love you tons.

I love to see that kind of change in people. It is the favorite part of my mission. Without a doubt!!!

Joe and other missionaries in his district and zone
It has been another great week in Mexico, or as you could say, mexi-cold.  I know it is really not that cold, but the slight drop in temperature has been killing me.  Especially because we have been bathing in cold water every morning since our water heater blew up.  
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANAYE!!! I am super excited for you and I sent you a letter. 
 It has been a pretty crazy week because it is the last week of Elder Stauffer.  I didn't let him be frito and he did really well enduring to the end.  He just wanted to eat all the Mexican food he could because its just not the same in the states.  So we went out to eat almost every night.  It is a miracle that we didn't get sick.
This week I will be in a trio with Elder Anderson (he started the mission with me and he is from south Salt Lake) and Elder Diaz who is from Guatemala.  We will be working our two areas and I have a feeling that it is going to be a wild week ha ha.  So we will be celebrating Thanksgiving together.  Its not celebrated here but we are going to see what we can do to celebrate it.
We saw a ton of miracles this week.  This week a 93 year old man contacted us.  His name is Fermin and he is progressing very well.  He is very active for such an old man.  He plays tennis every day.  Without a doubt he is the oldest person I have taught in my mission.  I don't know if I had told you about Cristina or not, but she is one of our investigators that we have had for a while.  She just wasn't progressing really well and we were praying for her and trying to figure out what we should teach her and we felt like we should show her a conference talk.  We did that last week and since that day she has changed 180 degrees.  She always reads in the bible and the book of mormon and is attending the church every week.  We still have a few more things to teach her but I am sure she will be baptized soon.  I love to see that kind of change in people.  It is the favorite part of my mission. Without a doubt!!!  It was super cool.
Hey Dave, keep your shoes on at school! ha ha.  
Kate,  I believe I left a list in my box about 100 ways to be a member missionary that President Baker gave us.  Could you check if its there in my books, I believe its in mormon doctrine or one of those church books.  If you could retype that and pass it to me, that would be great, and if you could translate it into Spanish it would be even better!
I love you all and am glad that you all had a good week.
Con Muchísimo Amor,

I can't believe that it has been 18 months!!!!

It has been another great week in Mexico.  I cant believe that it has been 18 months.  Its like the last leg of the 400 meters. ha ha but I am excited and ready to do all that I can to endure to the end.
This week was super cool!!  We were so busy teaching people that I didn't even have time to buy bread because we where running from appointment to appointment.  I hope I can buy bread now that its preparation day.
This week we found a really cool old man named Andres. I would think he is 60 years old by the way he looks but he is really 80 something.  He has known about the church for some 40 years now but just barely is opening up his heart to listen to the missionaries.  He is not even a member and he wants us to talk with all of his children and grandchildren.  We have no problem with that.
We had Stake Conference this week.  All the missionaries say that I am the most popular guy in the stake cause of all the people that knew me.  After the conference  we needed to leave but a ton of people, converts and members, came up to me and wouldn't let me through so we could leave.  I guess that is what happens after serving in the same stake for 18 months. ha ha.  I have also worked in every ward in the stake through intercambios (exchanges).  I had intercambios with Olivos Ward this week which was the only ward where I hadn't worked, but its cool to get to know all these people.
Two of my converts received the melquisedec (I don't know how you spell that in English) priesthood (It's spelled Melchizedek.  His spelling was bad before he left...  I cant imagine how it's going to be at the end of two years).  It was super cool.  The Conference was over satellite transmission from Salt Lake and Elder Scott spoke to us.  It was super cool.  He talked about temples and strengthening the family.
It is the last week with my companion so I am going to help him endure to the end.  It is going to be a super awesome week.  I will let you know everything that happens next week. My companion is going home a week early for thanksgiving but the changes arent until two weeks so I will probably be in a trio next week. So I might write on monday or on tuesday, I will find out sunday.  I love you all have an awesome week.

This morning the assistants called us and told us that today would be our preparation day, because the president needs to have a meeting with us tomorrow.  So its just going to be for today and next week we will be back to Tuesday again.
The big news of the week is that Elder De Hoyos came to the mission.  It was pretty cool.  We had the meeting with two zones, us and paraiso, but I was in charge of everything since I was the zone leader with the most time.  Everything went perfect.  And it was super cool to have him there.  He told us that since President Monson made the announcement for missionaries, the number of missionary applications have went from 700 per week to 7000 per week! And it has been like that every week since the conference announcement.  When he said that the spirit filled the room. I feel so excited to be a part of this work. I know that the lord is advancing his work at a quicker pace and he needs a lot more missionaries, or at least that is what the spirit testified to me during the meeting. They talked a lot about working with members and the Book of Mormon.  It was great and I learned a lot.

This week we saw a couple miracles in the area.  First we felt like we should go with Marina and Gustavo because we hadn't been able to go with them for all of the intercambios(exchanges we where doing.  We arrived at the precise moment that they needed us.  The dad of Gustavo died just a couple of days earlier and he had a lot of questions about whats after this life and how he could get closer to God.  The lesson was awesome, so awesome that they came to church this week.  The testimonies in the meeting where super strong and Marina was crying the whole time because she said she knows this is where she need to be, and that she had never felt so much peace in her heart before.  They also brought their 4 kids who loved it as well.  The ward really gathered around them.  It was super awesome.

Our ward mission leader is super cool, he is Brother Meza.  He is always super excited to work with us but its hard for him because his wife is less active.  So we went and visited with them this week and she came to church, for the first time in years!  It was awesome, I have never seen our ward mission leader so happy...He is always a happy guy, but to see him there in sacrament meeting with his wife and son was just another level.  I am so grateful for families because I know that's where we can have the greatest happiness

Ok, long letter . . .
The other big miracle this week was Maria Teresa.  She was a person who contacted us, yes SHE contacted US, you would be surprised ever since we have stopped contacting like we used to and started working more with the members, the people have just been running up to us and wanting us to teach them.  The other day we had 4 people contact us before lunch. ha ha.  But Maria Teresa is awesome.  We went in her house and she had a picture with Jesus walking by the shore where Peter and the apostles are fishing. The same one we have in our church.  And then she started talking about her "heavenly father" which is not how the people here usually refer to Him so I started looking around for the hidden cameras, trying to figure out who was pulling the gag, but no one was,she is just a lady who is super prepared to receive the gospel. 
We have stake conference this week and two of my converts will be receiving the Melchizedek priesthood.  I am super excited for them.  This work is great. I am having the time of my life.  I hope you are all doing well and will hear from you next week.
Con Muchísimo Amor,

Happy Halloween!!

It has been a great week here in Mexico.  I really cant complain about the weather!!Sounds like it has been pretty crazy up there but that's cool that you will be having a warm Halloween.  It was pretty wild this week because we have been changing a lot of things up, working more with members and stuff like that.  I really like working with the members, because we get to help strengthen their testimonies and baptize their friends..Its like two birds with one stone. 
 We have brought our ward mission leader out of inactivity and we plan to have a lot of success in the month of November.  Tuesday and Wednesday I was a little stressed out because we have Elder Benjamin de Hoyos of the 70 coming to our zone conference this next week and the President needs everything to be perfect.  So we are just working our butts off with that right now.  I am excited for it!  This time we only have to conduct and not teach anything.  It should be good training.  We've made an appointment with the whole zone this Wednesday to clean the church.

I have a testimony that the Lord can really comfort us and give us guidance,  I had to turn to him with all this stuff that we are doing and he has shown me how I should do it.  The lord gives us weaknesses so we can be humble . . . yep, that's important!!!
Here in Constitution, we put a baptismal date with Suzana.  She is awesome and loves the church, she is one of the oldest people I have taught, she is like 85ish, I am not really sure her age but I know she is really old.   
Other than that not a ton going on, trying to help everyone stay positive,  I guess that's whats important no? I love you all!!    Have an awesome Halloween!
Con Muchísimo amor,

Do I really talk with an accent?

It has been an awesome week down here, and it sounds like you have all had a great week up there.  I remember that in my first year I really missed all the fall colors and stuff because here it is always in spring mode, but this year I feel normal.  I really don't think too about it much.  We don't have pumpkins here, that I have seen, so I bought some oranges and drew some faces on them ha ha.  I stay as festive as I can.  I think I am going to be a missionary for Halloween, what do you think?

I am sorry to hear about brother Warner.  He was a great man, I have a lot of memories working in his yard, planting tress, watching them die and then pulling them out again and then planting new ones in his yard in the same place!  Ha ha!!! It was a cycle that lasted for years.  I am sure he is busy working on the other side knowing him.

This week we had a leak in the house.  I was stressing out, because it was leaking a lot of water,  and I thought if only I could call Dad and talk to him he would know what to do and he could help me out. I said a quick prayer, did some stuff, and fixed it.  It was quite the miracle!!

While all of this was going on Pdte Valadez called us and asked us if we could give a training session to the members who took the missionaries to the change reunion.  It was 10 at night and the change reunion was at 9 in the morning so we planned something up rapidly and went to bed.  The training session went really well...We used the talk by Elder Nelson.  "Ask the missionaries".  It went really well and we have heard that a lot of members have put into practice what we taught.

I spent most of this week in Mirasoles, because they pulled both of the missionaries out of there and I had to show the two new missionaires the new area and help get them all organized.  It was quite the job but it went well and now they have there feet on the ground and can start working.  Yesterday the President told us that we are going to be changing a lot of things up in the mission.  That this stuff was instruction from the First Presidency.  We are going to be working a lot more with the members and we are not going to go on so many interchanges or have so many training sessions.  He said he feels that everyone now is a lot more aware of the things they need to do.  I was so excited for this change!! Even though these last couple months have been super difficult doing all that stuff, I have learned so much and I know I am going to value it for all my life!!  We have 4 new zone leaders after this last cambio (change).  I feel bad that they didn't or don't get to have this opportunity but its all good. 

I am glad to hear that you are all doing well.  Do I really talk with a Mexican accent? (He asked this question cause this past week we got a tape with Joe speaking to us) (AND yes, he has quite the accent and had a hard time speaking in English.  It was great to hear his voice.....We all enjoyed it so much!)

Everything is perfect here!

 The Oillataguerre`s ( A senior couple who serves in Mexico City with the missionaries) and Joe

Wow, what a week here in Mexico! It has been really hot, and I am a little burnt but still not as burnt as my companion ha ha.  First off neither I nor my companion have changes. I will be staying here for 5 more weeks minimum, because my companion goes home this change.  I will probably be here until December.  This will be 6 months in this area.  I had 6 monts on the other side of the metro and now six months on this side of the metro ha ha.

Well Elder Stauffer and I started to change a lot of things because we needed more time to work in our area, so we adjusted our schedule and we had a very good week in the area and in the zone.
Wednesday I went on intercambios(exchanges) with Elder Ruiz from Chihuahua.  It was really fun.  He is a really good elder, really serious, so I helped him to liven up a bit and we had a good time working our area.  We put a baptismal date with Kristina.  She is awesome!!!  She has a lot of trials in her life right now' she is getting divorced and her kids are doing bad things but she has found a lot of hope through the gospel for herself and her family.

I was told to open my mouth.....How am I doing?

Thursday my companion and I worked together and we found this other Christian guy named Angel.  He is super ready to receive the gospel.  He invited us in and had lots of questions for us, about Joseph smith and prophets.  We had given him a pamphlet and he had read through it two times before we came to visit him.  It was pretty cool, and his wife made us sandwiches too.  He says he feels like he should pray to God, to know if this is true, I am pretty sure he has already done it.  We have an appointment with him on Thursday.

I went on intercambios with Elder Stevens from Spanish Fork Utah.  He is a real cowboy and has lots of cows in Utah.  He was a lot of fun to work with and we found a lot of new people that day.

Friday night we had a zone meeting where we talked about the difference of "being a missionary" and "going on a mission".  It went really well and I believe the elders left edified. 

Saturday I worked in Iztapalapa, the center of the center, with Elder Cruz.  It is one of the best areas in the mission.  We taught this crazy guy..... I am serious he was pretty crazy!  At one point I thought he was going to kill us and at another point I thought he was going to kiss us.  We left at the high point of the lesson so I hope he progresses.

This week we had our last zone meeting of district leaders of the change. Elder Brito shared his testimony.  I am going to miss him a ton.  It always feels weird when one of my companion goes home.  I am going to miss him a ton, we had a lot of fun together.  Elder Brito thought that I would have changes too so he brought a family from Mirasoles who wanted to say good bye to me.  They gave me a cool cowboy shirt with two roosters fighting on the front and back, it is pretty dang cool.

Everything is perfect here!! I am glad to hear that you are all doing well, thanks for the letter, they´re always great.  have a great week,
Con Muchísimo Amor,

Spiritual Marathon!!!!!! (pics)

Zone leaders and the Oillataguerre`s(Senior Couple on the left) and President (Right)
It has been another Amazing week down here in Mexico, let me tell you why:
I will start off by General Conference, it was awesome!  I cant believe all the awesome things that are going on in the world right now!  And now the missionaries are going to come even younger!! I am stoked!  It is so cool.  I learned so much.  When we got done with conference I felt like I had run a spiritual marathon.  It was good and we had a lot of investigators that came and I know that every talk they heard helped them.  It was also really cool to see a lot of my converts at the stake center.  I am so impressed with them they are all turning into little missionaries.  Just about all of my converts brought a friend to general conference.  One of my friends, Elder Andersen from South Salt Lake made me a disk of general conference yesterday so now we can listen to it for the next six months. it is going to be awesome.
I went on intercambios this week with Elder Reyes.  He is new and from Guatemala and is a great missionary.  He gets downtrodden a bit so I decided I would show him how to have fun on the mission.  We must have found 24 new people that day and we had a blast. We where doing whatever crazy thing we could do to get the peoples attention to listen to us.  I even wrote a rap in Spanish,  it is pretty good I am not going to lie.

This week President called us and asked us if we would go give a blessing to Elder Cruz that has health problems and would be returning to his home the next day.  I have known Elder Cruz for a long time, he had had cancer before and now it came back.  He asked the President if Elder Stauffer and I could come to give him the blessing because we were his friends.  It was an honor and an experience I will never forget. The spirit was really strong.

This Monday is going to be my preparation day.  I don't know if I will leave or not but if I leave I will let you know.  If I stay, I have some families in mind for Christmas stuff that you could send.

Joe and Elder Sweetin

There's nothing like it....words cant describe it, but it was awesome.

It was a great week in here in Mexico.  It was kind of sad because I didn't get to work in my area at all this week due to going on intercambios (exchanges), meetings, and baptisms, but I still saw lots of miracles and got to help a lot other missionaries.
Elder Fuell and his Companion Elder Stauffer

I went on intercamibios this week with Elder Malpica (yep, that elder Maplica) and Elder Hernandez.  To tell you the truth I was a little worried because we have had our conflicts in the past. But it was an awesome day and we had a blast.  We had a bunch of fun contacting people,  I tried to get them excited to try new things so it would be more fun, we did and it was a blast.  We knocked on one window and a lady came to it and said that she was busy doing homework and we were about to leave when a half naked wet man came running to the window and said  "Hey,  I want to listen to your message!! Can you give me 10 minutes to dry and put on my clothes? (he was showering)  We told him that we could wait.  He was the father of a family of 8 all above the age of 8 years old, and they will all be attending general conference this weekend, it was quite the miracle.


Then we had the baptism of Brenda Alcala this week.  It was an awesome baptism and the spirit was really strong.  There's nothing like it....words cant describe it, but it was awesome.

Glad that you all had a great homecoming weekend and topped it off with the primary program.  I have been to one primary program here in Mexico, it was really cool,  I don't know if they will do one in this ward because we only have 4 kids in the primary, but we´ll see.

I love you all have an awesome week.
