Almost 3 Months!

Hola mi familia! y mis amigos! There is my Español for you all!
How is everybody?! First I want to wish a happy birthday to Grandma Lucky!! I love you and wish I could be there to celebrate but Im in Campeche… kinda far!
This week was really, really good! On Tuesday night we did divisions with other elders here in Campeche because Elder Ortiz and I had to go to Merida for our immigration. He is from the Dominican Republic and I just have to say that I love Dominicans now. Haha Spencer and Dad are lucky to have gone there! We spentWednesday in his area working before we left for Merida that night and he was just super personable and, yes he already knows Spanish, but he just made every person laugh and smile! He knows quite a bit of english which was good too. But anyways we were walking that night and he said one of the most profound things for a missionary. He said, “What is our message for people? That God and Jesus Christ love them! WE ARE HIS REPRESENTATIVES! We have to be able to be a channel for that love through our eyes!” BOOOOOOOOM Such a studly missionary haha, and we arrved here the same time, just a little side note.

¡Hola mi familia y amigos!

What an awesome week! Every week gets better and better, and I think that is because the language is getting better. I can 100% see the Lord´s hand in my life in every single way, but specifically with the Gift of Tongues. Theres no way I would be able to survive without it! This week was a really good one and I hope I can remember everything that happened!

Whooo! What a week!

Gosh what a rollercoaster of a week. Thankfully I am at the end of the ride and it definitely had its ups and downs. Let me just start with how humbled I was this week. The Lord definitely knows where he can hit us to humble us, and this week I feel like I was pretty humbled at the beginning of the week. Everything just wasn’t going well. Don’t worry (MOM), I am fine now and I wouldn’t be saying any of this if the week didn’t end so wonderfully! So there was that poor start to the week, and then on Tuesday night I found out that Elder Haydock was getting special transferred…

An Hermana in our ward had written him a letter in his Book of Mormon on Sunday and it wasn’t anything scandalous but the assistants called Tuesday and told him he was getting transferred the next day. So I spent that night thinking of every single horrible possiblity that would go wrong. I was going to get a horrible companion who either didn’t speak spanish or spoke only Spanish, I wasn’t going to be able to find my way around the area, everything was just going to fall apart! So Wednesday morning we got the call of where and when we needed to go, and that I was going to have a Mexican companion named Elder Guerrero… We took the three hour bus ride to Merida and I took the book ¨Our Search For Happiness¨ by M. Russell Ballard. BOOM the week started to get better. WHAT AN AWESOME BOOK! I recommend that everybody, member and especially nonmembers of the Church, read it!
