este semana fue muy interesante, tuvimos un bautismo, fue muy especial y pienso que la persona le gusto mucho. creo que ella sentio bien al llegar a ser miembro pero había algunos desafíos, una cosa que ella nos dijo es que alguna horas antes de bautizarse ella dijo a uno de sus amigos que iba ser bautizado pero su amigo no le gusto y empezó a decir le maca-nadas y se picho pero ella dijo que después nosotros le llamamos justo cuando termino hablando con esa persona y sentio mejor, recibimos muchas otras bendiciones para que el bautismo fue exitoso. Yo sè que Dios nos ayuda en momentos difíciles, estaba leyendo en las escrituras de eso hoy, con el pueblo de Alma en como Mosiah 24, ellos tenían mucha fe y paciencia, fueron un buen ejemplo en confiar en Dios y casi inmediatamente el Señor les bendijo. Creo que es el mismo muchas veces con nosotros, pero el Señor quiere enseñar la fe y paciencia y necesitamos experiencias como el hizo con el pueblo de Limhi. No todos tienen esa fe como Alma y su pueblo y por eso digo que no todos han visto milagros, o han reconocido milagros, estaba mirando una escritura que marque un tiempo atrás y tiene que ver mucho con este tema en DyC 63,11Sí, las señales vienen por la fe para producir obras poderosas, porque sin fe ningún hombre agrada a Dios; y con el que Dios está enojado, no está bien complacido; por tanto, a éstos no muestra señales, sino en ira para su condenación.

I feel good, I am completely not sickrelease date...someone told me in july 14 or something like that so that is really coming up quick there
hey gang looks like I am fine and having a good mission, lots of cool stuff, I love the people, see ya, just kidding
I was just reading some of your letters, they were good to read, sounds like you all are doing good.
it is fun to see how you all are doing it made me smile and stuff when I was reading it. lately I have had people ask if I have pictures of my family, I have a few that I show them and they pretty much always are super surprised, it is fun to have a big family they always give me similar comments too. I think it is a big blessing to have a big family. Often times people ask a lot of questions and it gives me a good opportunity to talk about families and how the Gospel blesses us, I have a big testimony of that. I cant imagine what we might have missed if we didn't have the Gospel. I feel like family is the most important group we will be apart of here and after this life, with Heavenly Father being a part of our big family as well. I know that Jesus is our brother, it is sometimes hard to comprehend that but it makes me feel good when I think about it, I think it is cool how our family has grown a lot, In the pictures and letters I see that we are growing spiritually also. I want to bear my testimony about families, they can be eternal, that is for sure true, I know that the temple is the house of the Lord, His Church is a part of His kingdom, we are part of it also and He helps us to do His work which is mainly in the family.
I liked Emmi`s testimony that was really cool as well, I remember she always seemed to have a big testimony in Jesus that is cool.
well anyway this week was good, we have been reading the Book of Mormon as a mission, I have seen it help me a lot, I have learned more about repentance and I am sure that king Benjamin was really prepared when he gave his speech to the people there. I think it was around like Mosiah 4 or something, it made me think about if we had to meet God now, I wonder if we would feel all that prepared, gratefully we can be thanks to the Savior though. I also know that the Spirit is real and a lot of times gives me guidance on who I should talk to and where to go, I am really grateful for that blessing and I feel that it is very necessary, I wonder sometimes why that doesn't get emphasized more in the Church, but in this conference thing we had as a mission we got to hear about how we can have the Spirit more as we teach.
thanks for the quote that is a good one, sort of interesting, how the Spirit really connects to our mind I think that our minds have a lot to do with our Spirit or intelligence or consciousness I wonder what sort of differences they might have. but thanks you guys for writing me and stuff
on the funny side
I had a weird dream a few nights ago that me and my bishop here were trying to break into the white house and our stake president here had taken it over so we tried braking in with some firearms and stuff and then near the end of the dream we ended up calling Mom and Dad and they came and took out the president and saved the white house it was a weird dream.
might want to put that part in the ward bulletin. and this awesome pictures of me, I have learned to become one with nature out here since there is no civilization and we are forced to live with out houses.
but seriously the Church is true and all that it teaches

so for the lesson well what has blessed me is having the Spirit to be with me, that is very evident when I am being obedient. It is amazing what sort work we can get done as we follow the Spirit because we are being instruments for the Lord. I have talked with some people about being obedient for a long time and I remember one person was trying to convince me to be less obedient and he seemed to have every reason logically but then after he was done he threw in a ``well I have noticed that being disobedient makes it so I don't have the Spirit with me that strong`` I still wonder why he threw that in to what he was saying because it seems to me like he never changed but the principle is important, when we are obedient we are blessed. It sounds so much easier than it is sometimes. what blessings I have seen from being obedient on the mission, usually I feel peace, I don't feel confused about Spiritual things and I can hear the Spirit guide me to make wise decisions for the unseen future. A lot of the blessings have been like that, short term immediate Spiritual blessings and a lot of long term temporal blessings. When I am not obedient sometimes I feel a little bit lost. one thing that makes us want to be disobedient is pride, we think we know better. I like that talk from Ezra Taft Benson I think you may have shown me before, ``beware of pride`` or something like that, that is something every can do, beware of pride, there are many forms of being pride and as a family that could be something. Also another thing that helps is being obedient to the commandments as they are a list of happy things to do, like the first commandment is love one another, you guys could think of a list of service you can do, where you serve the person and try and make it so they don't know that you served them. or you can do or say something for someone everyday so that they know that you love them, and you could draw names. or things like that, I think living on a higher plane to me is applying the important teachings of the Gospel, that knowledge is what gives us the higher perspective, we really don't have to feel discouraged or scared or things like that. yeah i told my companion to email you guys something but he told me the computer place ran out of power, I'm fine, i just had a little bug so i didn't want to go out and make it worse, but yeah because of that I wasn't able to work that much this last week, I am completely ready to work now though so don't worry and I had a good week. yesterday we had Church and I really liked it, I said a prayer that an investigator there could feel the Spirit, at the end she was saying how the talks the people gave answered questions that she always has had, I am really happy for her, she seems to be growing in the Gospel pretty well. I know this is the true place to grow, the Church is true, there is a living prophet and the Priesthood is restored. Love you guys
