Don´t cry for me Argentina

Well...I guess this is pretty much it...seven days...seven more days to work my heart out in this beautiful country.

Honestly I'm kinda at a loss for words, I still can't believe that I've actually reached this point. It feels pretty unreal.

I´m going to miss this place. The amazingly blue skies, the loving people. I´m going to miss speaking spanish in the streets and chasing dogs in the alleys. Working in the rain and sweating in the sun. I'm even going to miss the sight and smell of burning trash in the gutter and drunk guys yelling at us from the sidewalk. Especially I will miss testifying of my savior Jesus Christ, being one of his official representatives. Having His name upon my chest.

What better way to get to know your maker than to spend time in and with his creations. In the the service of his sons and daughters.

Another week in the life :)

First off...Happy Birthday Ken an Brig!! I hope you guys have an awesome day, make it a good one, know that I love you guys a ton.

Second off...Congrats to my brother Jack getting his call to serve a mission in Japan!! You're gonna be an awesome missionary. I´m so excited for you.

Missions really are the best. Two years with one purpose to make the world a better place by helping people come unto Christ. It really is the most noble of works and it reaps so many rewards. Something that I have learned recently is something that King Benjamin taught, that we are eternally indebted to our God. Every time that we do something to try to pay him back for the blessings that he gives us he just ends up dumping even more blessings upon our heads. And then there is the one blessing that would be impossible to ever payback, that of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and that through him, we can be cleaned a perfected to one day return to his presence. How blessed we are. How blessed I am. My mission has really opened my eyes to how great God really is and how much he loves his children.  He is our Father and loves us infinitely. Of that I am certain.

Life is good

Life is so great. How is it that I am so happy but so tired at the same time? My comp and President always make fun of me because everytime I sit in the car to go somewhere I fall right asleep. I take it as a good sign haha.

It´s bbe a good but busy week as always. This week we did interviews with four zones and my comps and I did practices with the missionaries. It all went really well.
