Tons and Tons better….
Good moooorning Vietnaamm!!!
What am I doing? No mucho :) Solamente aprendiendo esta idioma y enseñando los mas capos de las personas aqui en Catamarca :)
How is everyone there doing?? Ha ha! Just kidding, I just read all of your emails so I know :) It sounds like you are all doing great and I am so grateful for it :) So, first of all this week has been TONS and TONS better. I'm doing great now, really! Every letter I got last week was exactly what I needed. It made me realize how much support I really do have from you guys and most of all the Savior. So yeah I'm doing a lot better.! ALOT :)
Yeah (Mom) we´re eating well. Maybe a little too well ;) No just kidding we normally always have a big lunch....never really breakfast or dinner. But, always a big lunch. Like today we had an asado and it was so amazing! It was my first one!! POR FREAKING FIN. If you do not know what an asado is it is just a big fire and a bunch of meat. Ha ha! I have cereal. Oh!! and PB and J with the peanut butter you sent me. It's perfect, we can't get peanut butter here at least I have not seen it yet so thanks for sending it with me Mom! The weather right now is HOT, actually a lot like Utah!
My companion and I have been working super hard to find new investigators and we have a lot. Seriously this work is amazing. It is perfect and it is the Lords work. There is not one thing about going on a mission that is bad. It stretches who you are physically, mentally, and spiritually; and It also prepares you for your future family, wife, and work life. There are so many more things that I just can't list but trust me, I am so lucky that I am here and there is no where I would rather be. This mission is what I need and God is blessing me in ways that I could never have even imagined. Hermana ______ finally went to churchand she loved it :) Hermana_______bore her testimony and when I looked out at the congregation I saw _______ almost in tears. This fast and testimony meeting was so amazing and I hadn't felt that strong of a spirit since I've been in the MTC. It was amazing. Anyway, Hermana _________is still struggling with some things and I we really need you to pray for them both.
Anyway, I CAN feel everyone of your prayers and please know that they are not going unnoticed. I can feel your prayers, your fasting, your faith, and everything you are doing for me. Thank you so much! I love you all and I pray for you all of the time. You guys are perfect and I am so glad I have this life with you all. Pray always for anything and everything. I have a solid testimony that Heavenly Father HEARS and answers your prayers. He never abandons you no matter what. Jesus Christ and His atonement is for you. This is something we all must always remember. I learned in the MTC that people tend to think of repentance as a terrible and awful thing that we HAVE to do. Rather, it is the complete opposite. God gave us His son so that we can be clean from every sin, trial, and affliction we have in our lives. Repentance is a beautiful thing it is essential and it is a gift from God. Christ is always with us. He will NEVER leave you. No matter what the circumstance. Please don't take this for granted and use His atonement. His arm of mercy is reaching towards you. I am so grateful for this amazing gospel. I love all you you guys and I love this mission. I love the people here in Catamarca:) I love my Savior I know He lives. I love my Heavenly Father, I know He too lives and He truly does answer every prayer. I love you all and have an amazing week!!! This week will go by even faster than last….. Chau!!!!
