(January 6, 2014) FELIZ AÑO FAMILIA!The first days of the year here were so strange because everyone is so friendly... todos personas dicen "feliz anos" to everyone! New years was awesome. we had to stay in the casa but at midnight we woke up and stuck our heads out the window to watch the festivities! There were fireworks everywhere and fires all the way down the street from the burning muñecas. So yeah that was fun. This week was a little rough because none of our fechas are progressing. WE NEED to find new people to teach. That's our goal for this week.
(January 13, 2014) Hola Familia!Well this week has been interesting... well not really. We have investigators and then on Sunday they all don't come to church again and then we have to drop them because they aren't keeping commitments. BUT we are working on obediencia con exactitud because for the amount we are obedient we get blessings and we need all the blessings we can get! The asistentes came and we had a meeting with them and Elder Pomares gave us assignments on what to study. so,Saturday i studied about how i could be a better disciple of Christ and i read the Scripture Lucas 14: 33 "así, pues, cualquiera de vosotros que no renuncie a todas las cosas que posee no puede ser mi discípulo". i was thinking that i need to give up a lot of things but mostly i need to give up my pride for learning Spanish. Always i want to be speaking in English "because i can understand it and actually have a conversation" but yeah so this week I'm working on my humility and hopefully it will help me with everything!!
Sorry its short this week and i didn't explain the scripture very well but you can ponder it and learn something for yourself! haha i love you all!
(January 20, 2014) Dear familia,my view of time has changed because of your letter! its crazy to think that i only have 14 months left to do all that i need to do! and all that i need to improve about myself! i need to get working!!!
