The best thing about being a missionary is when everyone sees that you have blonde hair and blue eyes and just start yelling ¨HELLO HELLO¨ or ¨Come on Come on¨ it cracks me up every time. But every once in a while you get somebody who speaks more than just a few phrases. We found this guy named Rodolfo who came out of his house and just started speaking to me in english. Every time it happens it takes me a second to realize that he´s speaking english and not spanish, it´s kinda trippy. We got to talk to him about the Book of Mormon and how important it is that we have another record and another testament of christ. 

At the end he just asked us how he could get one and if we would sell him one so he could read it. I tried to sell mine to him for 500 pesos but my companion just gave him one instead. Hahaha. The Book of Mormon is so cool though in all seriousness. But don´t take my word for it (cue Reading Rainbow Music) you´ve gotta read it for yourself!

This week one of our retention or recent converts completed her first year within the gospel. She is so awesome. She is 25 the mom of two kids and just got called to be in the young womens presidency. Seeing her and the change the gospel has had in her life gave me a little bit of perspective to the importance of missionary work and the impact it has on people and not only their lives but the lives of their family and on their eternity.

I hope that all is well donde se encuentran and that you are enjoying every moment of everyday! 

My favorite thought this week is from Elder Holland, he says, that it doesn´t matter how far you think you´ve gone how bad you think you are how low you feel you are, the light of christ will reach you. There is no darkness that the light of christ cannot penetrate, but the catcher is we have to let it. We have to let christ in. We are in control, he is knocking but we have the key to unlock the door, to unlock our hearts and to let him fix us.
