Why a mission?

The gospel is the most beautiful thing in the world. I know it's all true, and this knowledge has given me all the wonderful things of this life. I can't wait to share this knowledge with others.

September 24th Update

Hey everybody!

I´m still in Chile. I´m still preaching the gospel. It´s still pretty great here. 

Spring is starting to come here, and then summer! It´s funny when people talk about how HOT it is going to be here in December, but I´m excited. I like hot rather than cold. I´m probably saying that now because it sure can get cold here.

This week has been good for me how to love people a little more. Everything is better with that, right? This probably sounds a little bit silly, but I think people forget to show their love sometimes. 

The Spirit is in our lives to clarity, to enlighten, to simplify. We can feel the Spirit stronger when our minds our clearer, too. Satan tries to distract, to clutter our lives with things that take us away from our purpose. It´s our job to make sure we take some time every so often to take a step back, and realize what things actually matter, and what things don´t. This gospel is all about happiness, right? Sure there are hard times. But there´s not really a reason to not choose to be happy. Because the hard times are going to come either way. You might as well find a way to smile through it. 

One of the ways I´ve figured out to make it through the hard times is to focus on the love Heavenly Father and Christ has for me. Letting it fill me up. Think about this life, and about the life to come. It´s great, and marvelous, and breathtakingly exquisite. So why  not choose to be happy? Maybe for just for this day, or this hour. But why not? :) 

Still not fluent. But I´m working on it. 

I love you all. Keep being awesome. Hold on to the good things in life as tight as you can!

For 18 de Septiembre we weeded our lawn. Weeded? Or took out our lawn? Something about that it will make us not have as many bugs. I´m still not really sure why we did it. Sometimes stuff doesn´t really cross the language barrier, but for some reason it was part of the cleaning. 

I´ll have more pictures once I figure out a way to upload them faster.
