Every week I get frustrated because I start writing in spanish and get halfway through and have to start over. haha
Well... this week was a pretty good week. Its still raining. Its been raining for a long time now. I used to think it was way cool when it rained in the states because it never happens where I lived but then I got here and it's just kind of sucks, it never stops. haha everyone goes inside and nobody wants to talk to anyone much less the missionaries. (Insert sad face here) I have so much I want to share with everyone. My heart is bursting from the love of Jesus Christ!

Well, this week I had a moment of embarrassment when I forgot that it was one of my converts birthdays and I talked to him in the street and didn't say anything to him... oops. thank goodness I remembered when we were in a lesson with his mom. After the lesson we went to buy him something from the corner store. it was super great. I love all of my converts, however, I super love Kevin. My goal in life is to send him on a mission and then he can become mission president one day.

I don’t have much time today, I don't have anytime really but I wanted to share something that I have been thinking a lot about here recently.
Respect yourself and others. Its not really that hard. There are a ton of people that dont go to church or don't do things they should because of other people. While yes, I remember what I said about not putting your salvation in the hands of others, we should also remember to not do anything stupid that has the potential to impede the progress of someone. It doesnt matter what you think of them, it doesn't matter when they have done to you. Be nice. Its not hard. If you dont like someone that doesn't mean that you have to go over the top to be nice to them. Just smile, say hello, and move on with life. If they need help and you can, help them. Dont do anything to hurt peoples feelings on purpose. It makes absolutely no sense. Love everyone and just work hard so that people don't feel like they are less than you. It doesnt matter how much money you have or don't have. It doesnt matter what calling you have in the church. It doesn't matter where you live or what car you drive or what illness you may have or what other people may think. We are all sons and daughters of God and whether you like it or not, He does not love you any more than He loves the next person. He loves us all more than we can possibly imagine, but He loves all of us the same.
I love you all!
