EveryI think ¨Wow, it´s already?¨ I look back on everything that happened during the week and it feels like it was a months worth of stuff. It´s like what I said during my first few week: The days feel like weeks and the weeks feel like days. I have a feeling that when this is all over, the 18 months will feel like such a short time.
Today was a good P-day. Usually I get so stressed out because there´s so much stuff I need to do that I can only do today. Our P-day starts at 10 in the morning (after our studies) and ends at 5 in the afternoon (most missions it ends at 6, but our mission president made it 5 for us). Luckily today hasn´t been stressful.

In our mission, an investigator has to attend church 5 times before they can be baptized. Let me tell you how hard that is. Most missions it´s less than that. Since transfers are every 6 weeks, finding a new investigator halfway through the transfer is hard because there´s a good chance that one of the two companions won´t be there for the baptism. This is how my companion and I feel right now because we´re finally finding some people who have the desire to be baptized,
Ok, so it finally got hot here and it´s SUPER hot!!!! I was wishing so hard for warmer weather and I finally got it. But now I want the cold back! I´ve determined that I don´t like the cold or hot; I like being comfortable. Why can´t the weather always be perfect?!?! ;) I have an awesome tan on my feet from my shoes already, so that´s only going to get worse... :)
I noticed a change in my Spanish again this week. I can understand a lot more which is always nice. It´s weeks like these that give me hope that someday I´ll get this language.
One of the great things about being a missionary is having a front row seat of the Atonement changing peoples´ lives. One investigator has changed a lot in the few weeks we´ve been working with him. It´s really the coolest thing to see. :) I know this gospel blesses everyone no matter their circumstances or challenges or weaknesses.
In our zone meeting this week they talked about faith and pride. Pride is trusting in yourself while having faith is trust in God. Both cannot coexist. Pride is such a huge stumbling block!!! I love how bold Almais: ¨Behold are you stripped of pride? I say unto you, if ye are not ye are not prepared to meet God...¨ I know I´m here to learn a lot about pride, among other things.
I love this gospel and I love how it has blessed my life. I know it´s true. I wish I could shout it from the rooftops. I KNOW THIS CHURCH IS TRUE con todo mi corazon!
