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.

July 29th Update

Hey family,

Carmen and three of her children got baptized. Oh man, mission work is a labor of love. We definitely had a crazy week to help everything turn out but it did. It really is incredible how, if we're humble enough, we're able to see how Heavenly Father is guiding our lives.

I think a lot of times in our lives we just want to get over our trials. To just do what we've got to do. To bite the bullet. But a lot of times it just doesn't work out that way. There are some trials that we get that no matter how much we want to, we just have to live with patience. In Elder Bednar's talk, he quotes Elder Maxwell and says that we all need to "partake of the bitter cup, without becoming bitter". This is one of the things that the Savior showed us how to do. Of course it's difficult, but that's why we have the atonement. 

Heavenly Father loves us enough to teach us. To test us. To give us the things we specifically need so that we will be able to become better. There are so many times when we can become frustrated about the things that happen to us, when sometimes we just need to step back, breathe, and make a game plan of how we are going to STILL enjoy life with all that we have. Come what may, and love it, right? 

This week should be a fun adventure. We're off to go find, reactivate, and retain the converts that we already have gotten. 

I love you so much, and thanks for all the support that you give me. 
Venga lo que venga y disfrutalo.
