Bad Week :(

Hey mom!
How are you? sounds like things are going well.  I love hearing from you! :)  I am doing good.  We had a horrible week!! We had to go to Quito this week because my companion’s teeth were hurting him so we went Tuesday and they took some x-rays and he had to get his wisdom teeth pulled! so we had to stay the night and they took out his teeth the next day. Then he was super super drugged so we just came back and we did not work for the next three days! In all the meetings I had to conduct them because he couldn’t talk! But we were able to get out a little on Saturday and do some work.  So we got a little done.  It was the first time in my mission that I have not gone out to work! It was not a good feeling.  Then on Sunday some things happened and I made him mad and he would not talk to me all day! But he came to apologize and we are all good now.  But it has been a rough week.  When I got to this zone they were super down and had nothing but we are working really hard to animate them and to have success soon! maybe in this change we wont see success but the next changed I am sure we are going to have a lot! 
Today we went to this lake as a Zone and it was really cool! Super high in the mountains and it was really pretty.  Haha only that when we got there it was raining super hard and everyone got super soaked and it was pretty cold so that was the only down side to it.  But over all it was a good experience.  We did dress like the natives again and I would think about buying my own but the poncho things are like 300 dollars!! Super expensive so I think I will pass.  The gowns that the women wear are actually kind of cool.  
Wow thinking about home and my life after stress me out.  I would like you to look into Utah state for me and see how that is! I would like to go there but Whatever is the best option.  I was in the offices the other day when we went to Quito and I was looking at the papers and on the papers it has it says that I am going to go home on the 13 of October... But we will see what happens I am not sure because that would me almost 26 months.  But thank you for looking into that and let me know what you find out. Love you Mom! You’re the best

Well this week I have been studying the book of Mormon a lot and I came across a scripture that I love! IT is in alma Chapter 5 verses 6-9.  Wow my souls fills with joy as I read those verses.  I love how he talks first about the things that the Lord has already done for them and their parents. It is very important that we also remember the blessings that the lord has done for us! Think about your like and the life of your ancestors and the great and marvelous things that the Lord has done for them and you! Isn’t it great? Think about your own conversion and how you know that the church is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet.  How do you know? How did the Lord help you know? What blessings have came through that knowledge?  Many people are sleeping and perhaps we are sleeping and we do not recognize the things that the Lord has done for us.  But If we can wake up we can be filled with this redeeming love that makes our souls sing! Now think about all the blessings that you have had that the Lord God has bestowed upon you and the salvation that will come if you endure to the end.  Is it not great? IS the joy not great? Now who in your life also would benefit from these blessings? I hope that you guys are always looking for the chance to help other people out on this journey that we are all on here in the earth.  The blessings that will come are far greater than you can ever imagine.  Think about it and then pray! Then go out and act on your prayer! :) Love you guys!
