Crazy, Busy Week with Traveling, Meetings and Proselyting

Yeah we had a way busy week last week but that is also because we had to do a lot of traveling for meetings and such.:) Which is hard cause then after we have to come home and study and do my training which takes time away from proselyting... But it’s all good. We still got in some good lessons and I feel that we have some really good progressing investigators. I’ll tell you more about them next week after we hopefully get some more lessons in this week if I don’t change zones. I really am learning so much from the people here. It is so amazing how strong I can feel the spirit in a lot of our lessons.. even though I still don’t know everything that is going on cause Spanish is hard but I feel it is coming along really good.:) 

This week is transfers or ''Cambios'' as they are called here. But I won’t know till later today for sure if I’m moving zones but I think I will be staying here to finish my training.:) This week is crazy... because we have cambios for one and we are going to Osorno today to redo Elder Thomas' visa and so we are staying busy.:) but we know for sure that Elder Thomas isn’t leaving so that is good!!!

I’m glad you liked the pictures. I have a ton more but not enough time to send... As for the hedge hogs they are cute but they are not really very fun pets. They basically sleep all day until we get there...;) haha, but they are super adorable!! That sounds like such a crazy fourth of July. I miss the breakfast and definitely the lake and fireworks!!! It was literally raining all this last week so we couldn’t have done them here anyway.:)

Your work sounds really cool and also awesome because you guys are making a difference and helping people!!:) But yeah we looked it up and Top Golf looks pretty sweet.:) And what????? you haven’t seen Finding Dory yet???? haha jk. I’ve heard a lot of people say it’s ether really good or just so so. I want to hear what you guys think. :)

Haha yeah that was sad... :/ (He twisted his ankle on a curb, tripped and tore his pants last week but he is okay). I have a good bruise on my leg and little cuts on the other but mostly I was just sad about the pants... haha but it is all good. Thank you for the thought (which was about our covenants being like anchors that keep us from wandering off to places we shouldn't go and keeping us safe.) I never thought about it that way either. It is a super good example though, and so true. They are there to be our anchors in the good waters of the Gospel of Christ and keep us away from the bad things of the world.:) Shoot I might need some physical anchors here cause it is raining a lot!!! haha but I love the rain and the huge puddles.:) 

For this week my thought is to just look for the hand of God in your life every day. Try to look for the miracles in your day.:) Elder Thomas has a ''Miracle Journal'' that he writes 5 different miracles every day!! and that’s what I thought about the day I ripped my suit. I am so glad that I wore my blue suit that day and not my black one. Because with my black suit it doesn’t have the warranty on it, so I would have been out a suit. But with my blue suit I have washable pants that match and I can get new pants sent for free.:) So count your blessings and know that even in bad times or what seems like bad times, the Lord is always there.:)

Love you mom!!! Keep up the good work there and I’ll keep up the good work over here!!:)
