Okay so I am not 100 percent positive but I think where I am is one of the driest deserts in the world . . but did you know that there was a little bit of rain here and now there are flowers growing wild flowers are growing that I tell you is a miracle. It shows that if there is a little hope that anything can become of it that if we just believe a little bit give something a try something beautiful can become of it! I love this so much because it is so simple but truly is beautiful! 

So anyways this week was super awesome and stuff we visited a lot of members this week and it was pretty awesome the spirit was will us and it was kinda cool! I know that with God that all things are possible I have seen it here and that's pretty awesome if you were wondering" 

I have been reading general conference talks still and it is pretty awesome because they are super inspiring every time I was reading the talk i don't remember who wrote it but I do remember what it was about it was about the little boy who was going to fall of the cliff and his litter brother waited for him and he compares this to the savior and how he helps us how sometimes we tell him that we can do it by ourselves but actually we cant we can't even do anything close to it by ourselves there is a scripture that I really like and it says in Adam all men die but in Christ they may be made alive! I love this scripture really a lot because honestly we can apply it in our own lives and it can help us so much because its super true that in Christ we may be made alive! I know that if we accept the atonement into our lives we can be to made alive its super amazing to think about it! 

This week was kind of hard like like we had super hard things to do or anything just that it was a harder one for me and I just became so much closer to Christ in prayer for him to help me not have the fear to speak and to share my testimony because I know that these things are true. I just sometimes feel lost but I know that through the atonement that I can truly have the ability to open my mouth and I know that the words that need to be said will be heard that I can actually help these people and that they can understand me sometimes. I don't feel like that they understand me because I am a gringo which is true but honestly  I know that if I put my faith in him I can do ALL things not just some things that I can do anything!
This week I had to write a talk on the sanctification personal and it was super hard because there were so many ways to go about it but I know that there have been so many moments in my life that have been hard but I know that through God all things are possible we just need to believe it that we NEED TO LIVE EVERY MOMENT IN OUR LIFE LIKE ITS THE LAST ONE because you don't want to have any memories that you regret so always repent always do everything that you can do always have the spirit with you always pray and tell those around you that you love them because if something crazy happened you wouldn't want to think I wish I had just said this or done that! I know if we do all we can in ever moment that we will be blessed! I love you guys so much and I hope that you never forget that that you know that. I love you guys thank you so much for all you guys do for me and your amazing examples to me I truly love you guys and want you to know that through God anything is possible! 

Please never forget that! 
and have the BEST WEEK EVER!
con mucho amor

Okay so this week was pretty fantastic. We had a super awesome experience this week .We have been praying to have miracles in this sector and we received! We went to the part of the sector that we usually don't because it is really far, and we went to find Antiguos and Menos,  and we ended up finding a few people. Well someone found us actually, we were walking down the street and we started walking and we heard someone say senoritas and we slowly turned around and she said are you guys Jehovah witnesses and we were like no. Actually we are from the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and then she was like okay okay.And then I have another question do you guys teach English and we said no, but we can always teach and then she said okay call me on Monday and we will set up an appointment.

Then we were kinda like okay, we will see what she says on Monday, and went on with the day. We on Sunday. We were just about 5 minutes from our apartment and we received a call and she said so I have time today if you guys want to come and teach me. and we were like okay she just wants to learn English. We will try teaching her a lesson and if we have time teach her some English and then we called her and said we could come, so we showed up at her house and she let us in lovingly and she invite us to share our message and she listened to every word that we said, and she said that she would come to church on Sunday and that she would bring her kids! 

So I know that God answers our prayers. If we ask for people to teach and prepare to teach them they will be given to us. I know that God put us in her pathway so that she would have a reason to talk to us. I know that really God loves u. If you ask, and work and find a way to do something  I know that God will always provide a way for it to happen. You just need to do your part because God won't ever do something that he knows that we can do for ourselves! 

This week was super amazing, and so awesome to see the miracles here I also would like you guys to know I was reading general Conference talks this week and my favorite, well I love them all but one of my favorites is the do you know how to dance one and I really learned so much that I can apply to my life right now how if we don't listen to the music and actually here it, it will eventually lose purpose to it. It wont have any significance if we don't put our heart in it. I learned that so much here that if I am not loving what I am doing than why am I here? What would be the purpose? But I do love it. I love serving God sharing happiness, sharing the music of the Gospel with these wonderful people here. I know that really God knows us personally and if we let it we will be dancing like them awesome dancers yeah? I know God loves us so much and he knows the words we need to hear, the people we need to speak with. All the little things that change who we are he knows and if we are listening and dancing he will put us in the places that we really need to be! I know this with all my heart! I know the talk is better so if you have a second read it!

Okay well I hope that you guys know I love you guys so much, and that you guys are so amazing and I hope that you have a awesome week!! 
te amo mucho!
