March 18, 2013

Hello hi,
     Wow I can’t believe how busy everyone has been back home! Sounds like you guys need to take another vacation and rest little bit haha.  I really hope Blake makes the exec council… sounds like he has really been putting in some hard work! Also seems like Ethan and the team are doing pretty good? That’s good to hear!  I can’t believe how sick everyone keeps getting back home, you guys should probably start taking vitamins or something haha jk.  Good to hear that everyone is doing good tho, really good.  Hey I forgot to tell you a while ago, but please tell the Frosts and Sister Hunt that I got the cards they sent me and thanks so much it really means a lot:)
     So I’ll start this letter. This week was actually pretty hard for me! I have been feeling a lot of stress and I never feel stressed out ha. I was so busy this week and had so much going on!!! I don’t even know where to start. Well I lost my memory card to my camera.... yep so there goes my life I had in the mission right there!! I have no idea where it is! It is gone.
     I went on divisions again this week. I’m not going to lie, I don’t really like divisions that much at all.  But I always learn so much from them and it’s a good way to keep progressing in the mission.  The fair is going on right now and so there is a lot of people in Valles on vacations and stuff… so that’s pretty cool I guess haha:)
     SO the good news is YES we had the baptism of Vanessa and it was so great!! It was so spiritual. We had some really spiritual people give some talks and it all turned out so good! She was so happy and cried in the end when she said her testimony.
     I have been trying to improve in the ways I teach and learn the lessons better, so I’ve been studying my brains out! I feel like everyone is pressuring me and wants to know everything in like one night…its pretty crazy.  I was actually feelin a little home sick this week. I even got a little tear in my eye but other than that I am doing really good!! I’ve just got to remember that I can only do my best and it doesn’t matter what other people think. I’m always improving in everything everyday.  Everything we do, we can always do better in. I learn so much every day & every week and am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the Lord.  I’ve learned so much from my companion that I can’t even put it into words. At times he looks mad but he has so much love for every person…he really is just a big teddy bear.
   Love you all!!!

  1. Luckily he's been sending some pictures home that you'll always have access to, but that is still a big disappointment. We'll be praying for him!
