Hey family! This week we had a good, but not so good time. It’s a little tough right now but that’s how we learn right? I’m so thankful that my mission hasn’t been easy because I’ve learned A TON. I knew it was going to be hard. From patience to perseverance, the mission has really helped me learn. I’ve been humbled, and pushed to my limits at times. I know that in the trials we have, there is no better source to find comfort than in the scriptures and prayer. "When it’s too hard to stand. kneel." I know Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to learn. He will always help us. We must learn how to embrace our trials and master them. We must endure! We have to! We can’t let the "other guy" beat us. We must always be obedient and engaged in a good cause. In those hard moments the Lord continues to bless us but we must look for it. "Not every day is good, but there is good in every day." We must keep our head up and our attitude positive! Just in the past few hours I’ve received a ton of tender mercies from one thing to another. Thank you so much for your support, love, and prayers. I know with assurance, that the clouds always clear up and things, "come to pass," and not to stay. We must be obedient ALWAYS. President Monson has said, "You can’t be right when doing the wrong, and you can’t be wrong when doing to right." I love this..."And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated."
I made the root beer and it turned out AMAZING!!! haha that was a high point of the week. I was talking with Sister Giuliani, my mission President’s wife and she said that she misses root beer a ton so I think I’m going to make her some when I go to the mission home on Thursday. Today I’m going to try to make my favorite cookies. :) I’ll never forget when Lexi sent me frozen cookie dough in the MTC. hahaha that was awesome.
Oh so we’ve been working out a lot lately! Running the stairs in the apartment and I bought a Pull-up bar for 15 dollars, or 70 pesos. I think my bodies changed but I’ll let you guys judge that in a year. ha
So I don’t have anything else.... I LOVE YOU ALL!
