Hey dad it's going pretty good. Still the normal hot and humid here. Yeah I'm pretty sure that I have had a few days like that. I've had a few days that are just stressfull days. With problems with investigators, trying to do alot of things with not alot of time, days where I just feel like going back to the house to sleep. I dont think that we will always have the ablility to completely avoid these days, but there are always things we can do to get through them. This life is a time to be proved and tested to see if we would do all things that God has commanded us, so there will always be those tough times. During these times we always have to keep keeping all the commandments like going to church, paying our tithing and such. I think it's also good to just try and focus on the good things around us and all the blessings that God has already given us. Praying ernestly to God, expressing to Him our feelings, asking for help to recognize the good things around us and asking for help is also something that always helps. God always wants to help us develop more patience, but He isnt just going to give us more patience, He will first give us opportunities where we can practice our patience. Focusing on the basic principles of the gosple and trying to live them more perfectly will help us find the true joy that being members of this church has to offer us. Well I hope that some of this will help. I love you Dad! Keep enduring to the end! I know you can do it!
Hello my mother! I'm doing really good and alot better than I was last monday. That sickness only lasted for a day. On tuesday I was already better. My companion is pretty healthy right now too. Carlos is still doing good. He came to church again on sunday. He wants to learn more and more and always has alot of good questions. Carlos works alot and in a different city, so it's kindof hard to teach him alot. But on saturday we were able to teach him a bit of the gosple of Jesus Christ. The lesson was good and spiritual and I always like trying to answer the questions he has.
On Saturday Christian Velasco got baptised. Christian gave a really good testimony afterwards. He said he felt just alot of joy as he came out of the water. Christian is a really good guy and always wants to help his family be on the right path. The rest of his family is a part of a different church and also just not really making good decisions in their lives. He always says how much that burdens his heart and how he wants to do more to help them. It has been really cool to be able to work with him and teach him.
Kind of a funny story... On thursday we had our district meeting. For the opening hymn we were singing Master the Tempest is Raging and during the song in the part were it's building up, a small earthquake happened, and then when we sang the words, "peace, be still, peace, be still" the earthquake stopped. Afterwards we all started laughing because it was such perfect timing with the song we were singing.
Well thats it for now! Thanks for everything! I love you mom!
