January 26, 2015 – Week 15

Unfortunately, this week we weren’t able to have a baptism. Our investigator said she didn’t feel like she was welcomed in the church with her and her family, and her husband really isn’t interested in the church.  But here’s the thing that happened the other day… We talked to her for a long time for about an hour and she told us she had the dream the other night. In her dream she said she was dressed in white and along with hundreds of other people, she was in a beautiful big white church.  In the front there was this man singing a beautiful song and she said she felt really peaceful during her dream. I’m no dream interpreter, but I sure felt the spirit really strong. I think she was in the temple and I really think that eventually she will be baptized, whether it be by me, it isn’t important. Just matters the ordinance.

     I’m sorry if there are a lot of misspelled words, this keyboard fetching sucks and its hurting my hands to type. I talked to my mission president and he said make sure you don’t follow the example of your companion. We have been working a lot harder this week and we have taught a lot more lessons. It’s not that he doesn’t want to work hard, its just he wakes up late every day. We have interviews with the president on Thursday so hopefully after that things will get even better. I just have to do all that I can do to be dilligent in the work of the Lord. Obedience is the key to success in the missions and throughout our lives. I still don’t like him sometimes, he just doesn’t have any respect. But it really doesn’t matter I dont let it get to me. haha.
     This week I ate the worst meal of my life! It took me an hour to eat it and I didn’t finish it all. We had this pasta and instead of sauce it was mayonaise and I about threw up after each bite. Also we had this torta which is pretty good with meat and cheese but this one my companion told her to put twice as much avacodo on it and I freaking hate that crap! There was some pink onion sauce crap and it was really soggy too. I about threw up and I gaged after each bite. it was horrible.
     Other than that things went pretty well this week. This weekend we have stake conference and we are getting a new stake president and a new stake. Also Benjamin De Hoyos of the 70 will be there as well. He’s presides over of all of Mexico and it will be awesome to hear from him… If I can understand him haha. I am starting to understand more and more and it’s great. Hopefully, my speaking can pick up faster and faster. I pray for it every day. I really love that scripture you shared dad it is one of my favorites as well (1 Nephi 1:1).
     Here’s something that I read this morning its in Matthew 13 I think or 14. It’s about one of the parables. It compares the kingdom of heaven to a pearl. There is a merchant searching for pearls and he comes across a giant pearl of great price and he goes and sells all that he has to acheive it. Then he buys it. Are we willing to give up all that we have to achieve the kingdom of heaven? Nothing is of more importance and of great worth than to achieve all that our father in heaven has, and we are heirs of the kingdom of god. There is a great sacrifice that we have to give to achieve it. And I am sacrificing right now to miss the last season of Jeff Gordon, which sucks, but this brings more joy, i think…hahaha Anyway, keep that in mind and work with the missionaries in the ward! Love you so much! Have a great week!
     Happy birthday to you as well Mom! That sucks that the other package didn’t make it but oh well!  By the way, it’s the 9th anniversary of your 30th birthday! haha I’m excited to turn 20, its pretty dope! Love you!
