|My old companion who came down to visit at changes... Elder Gutierrez!|
The ward I`m in is called "El Sauce" which I think means... the willow? If I`m not mistaken. It`s a big change from the city.... There is no smog whatsoever..... My first day I just stopped and sniffed up a big beasty breath of fresh air.... Man... its insane. I realized I was back in the campo when I rang somebodys doorBELL. It`s a literal bell attached to a string thats mounted way up on their deck. Haha. It`s already been great and I know we`re gonna work like crazy over here. I`M EXCITED to be where I`m at and with a good companion as well.

Got a couple little thoughts for you before I gotta run. Lets just say.... The Book of Mormon is.... SICK!
Mosiah 28:3 Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish ; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble .
|PARENTS... This little full bread german shepheard is 6 |
weeks old..... the people bought him for 20 bucks...
SICK DEAL! Super Cute too
DyC 123:16 You know, brethren, that a very large ship is benefited very much by a very small helm in the time of a storm, by being kept workways with the wind and the waves.
17 Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.
|Elder Monsen and I at changes|
It`s amazing the influence we, as active members in the church have on other people...... This is one of my favorite scriptures found in the DyC...... It`s time for us to act... it´s time for us to serve... I just love what it says... Let us CHEERFULLY do all that we can...... everything that is offered to us.... then we can just stand still... because we KNOW that we are good. We know that we have done all that our Lord wants us to do. These are gonna be the best two changes of my mission here in Peñaflor. Why? Because we`re dedicated.... we`re converted... and we`re gonna do all that we can with BUEN ANIMO.... Just as the Savior himself did..... Amazing. This is Christs Church. I`m grateful that we can live happily and that we can be safe from evil if we just.... do as it says in the scriptures countless times.... Obey the commandments.... Endure to the end... How hard is that. It`s simple. We are so blessed to live in the time that we do.... May we remember that in our daily lives. Many members of our church have suffered and even died to get the church to where it is at this point today. Now it`s OUR turn to lift where we stand and take the trash out. So lets do it. I love you guys and I hope this can be a great week for you wherever you may be.
