My week has been pretty good besides the fact that me and my companion taught our last lesson to Jorge Thursday.  That was sad because we had gotten so far with him.  I wish we could teach him at least one more time. I all so figured out that I depart from the MTC on September 7th.
This week I had to really humble myself though. This is one thing I want to remember and that is D&C 6:36 look unto me in every thought.. doubt not.. fear not. As well sometimes the Lord will break us down before he can take us higher.  All ways remember we are nothing without God.  I can not teach others with out him.  I cannot learn this language without him we have to be exactly obedient and driven to keep his commandments. I am not the teacher the spirit is the teacher. I can say as many things I want to but if the spirit is not there, than are just words that truly mean nothing.  The investigator  may think like oh that's nice but I don't now if they are true though. The spirit is the most important thing for us to have.
I love you so very much but I'm helping to creating eternal families for others so they can be together forever.

My Purpose

Never in my life have I been closer to the Lord. I was looking at the pictures of us and I started to cry because never have I felt the spirit and have such a strong experience to realize what my purpose is.   My Purpose as a missionary is to give service and to let people know that they can have a forever family like I have. 
A missionary is a person who leaves his/her family for a short period of time so others can be with there's for eternity.  Knowing that families can be together forever is the happiest news I can bring to others.

I'm exiceted to go teach people.  I figured out my TRC investigator is a nonmember and there is a possibility that we can baptize him or get him batized he is such an amazing person.  I dont kinow if we would be able to do it but have some other people baptize him I really hope that he does get batized either by me and my companion or by someone.  It's been difucult because he lost his son when his son was 14.  I beared my testomniy about eternal families and told him about Austin so that was tough for me but he realy likes me and my companion.  I will miss teaching him because he is such a great guy. 

I'm on the lords time this is time that I give to the Lord for every thing that he has and will give to me. Keep the dear Elders coming or if you want me to answer a particular question email it and send me a Dear Elder or just send me a Dear Elders a lot ......oh and if you all want to send me dear elders in one day that would be awesome because the record for most dear elders in one day is seven and it would be nice to beat that record in our district so send them all in one day and lets see if we can break that record. well love you all and it means a lot when you guys send me letters, thank you for your support.
Yeah I just get frustrated some times because I cant express myself some times in Spanish but oh well... thats why I'm here so I can learn and become stronger.  Love you got to go and finish up my laundry.
- see you in Two.--

Week Two in MTC

This week was a little rough but some of the happiest moments in my life and I'm pretty sure that every missionary has gone sort of insane. I know though that I'm a representative of the Lord. Yo se que ese de iglesia de jesuchristo es laverdad de Iglesias.

My comapnion's name is Elder Selph.  I love all the Dear Elders and keep the packages, keep them  coming.  Stay strong never give up push your self past the breaking point give your hundred percent to God and he will help you the rest of the way.

Week One

Hey everybody I'm doing good the first week was difficult. I have all ready have to teach 7 lessons in spanish it's been difficult but you do not grow in your comfort zone you grow in a zone of discomfort the most and the quickest as well. My companion is 6 foot 6 inches tall and he played football in high school and he is planning to go to BYU and play football there so we have been working out everyday but he is amazing person.
God loves all of us and Christ knows what everybody is going through because he has gone through it as well never give up and strive to be the best person that you can be and to help others all ways so I challenge all of you that read this to do an act of service daily and to all ways to be loving to others love you all and hope you are all doing well.
