"[The pioneers] woke up each morning with clearly defined purposes and goals that everyone understood: to serve God."
—Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "All Is Well"
Hello my friend hope life is great for you, and you had a great week. Thing here are good moving forward with the Solstice job, looking for fall and winter work which is always a concern BUT the Lord always provides:))) missed a couple days of riding this week but when we did it was good. Hope to do a little more this week,
I hope that you have a purpose every day and that you love and enjoy your purpose. Hope you smile and are happy and love the people you're working with, things are moving so fast for you and you may only get one chance to do what you need to do. I know you're at the top of your game and your giving it your all, just remember to love the good with the not so good " A bad day in the mission field is better than a good day in a lot of other places." :))))) I just made that up what do you think? I hope and pray you happy and loving serving the Lord. Keep it up:)

Presidente, This week has been a little bit tough on the health side.. i have a cold and a bad cough.. but im getting over it little by little.. ive got some pills and i feel alot better then thursday when i got sick. this week we were able to have 8 inv come to church and one of them we havent taught we only invited him and he came with some of his friends.. the ones that we are teaching. we were also able to help the hnas get the batptismal font all clean and filled with water, we ran out of water about half way throufgh so then we had to call the pipa and ya, it all worked out. my biggest struggle i think that i am having is memorizing and having a firm foundation of the bible. its still something that im striving to work on and share with others. and my comp is great at helping me out iwth this! this sunday we also had a lesson with the bishops wife and we got the inv, to accept a baptsimal fecah for the 1 of august and im very happy and excited that ill be here to help her get prepared for that day! we are still working good as a companionship and dont have any serious problems. im happy and very excited for this change!

Awesome! So I got a text saying package was delivered to mission office, do you not see or hear from them every week? What did you do for pday since you didnt have to move? I am going to see if we can meet watson at hna mitchells homecoming this sunday....Ran into hunter anderson yesterday, he says hi and he was going to write you-we will see... do you have fhe tonight? pretty excited about your baptism for the 1st, sonia? how did you get her?

We will pray for Sonia and I will call and put her name in the temple tomorrow, same with Marina and the others :) need to send a picture of your kitchen and bathroom :)
haha i feel good about it! im getting alot more confiedence when im talking more in the lessons then my comp.. haha we had a lesson and it was my comps turn to talk and he said no you explained everything and didnt say anything.. so i guess i talked a little to much.. ;) eating good and the other day we ate chiles filled with meat.. it was kind of weird tasting because im like on the boarderline of loving the hot and spicey but not loving it.. ok ill send them next time :) how are you mom????????? :)
Dad and guys home early today so jordan took harry and jax to the movie, jace cleaned his room, dad and I are puttying new floor in kitchen in motorhome, looks pretty good, they all say hi and they are happy your happy that you are staying put :) favorite thing this week?
ohhhh wow lots of work! umm talking enlgish with my comp!!!! its so funny!! his accent is hilarious when trying to talk englsih! how are you doing mom!!!!??? :)
I am doing good, we have several farewells and homecomings coming up so I will miss Relief Society here and there, but I am excited about serving...need to fill my spiritual bucket-loved being in the temple the other night, I think we need to go more often, Gram Pat asked if I would go with her during the week when school starts again, so I am excited about that! Things here are crazy, sometimes we are all here and seems like we are all in different rooms of the house, but I guess I shouldnt complain, we are under the same roof :) other times no ones here and the house is very quiet-I get a lot done during those moments but dont like them to last long! :) Life is good, my little family is growing up and my house is not the kool-aid house, maybe some day! But I am very blessed, have great sons and great husband who are all worthy priesthood holders and that is my most greatest treasure-life is good! The church is true and I am blessed beyond measure- no worries about me....
Whats scripture for the week? mine is a quote from Pres Hinckley ill send it to you with a picture of him
mom.. thanks :) for everything :) my scrip this week is a quote the doutb your doubts before you doubt your faith. because there are alot of times when we are in the house and satan has his ways of making me doubt and think that you guys arent ok.. and so then im not focused and im worried and it hurts. but i put this little quote of a sticky note and its on the wall where i study so when i doubt im doubting my doutbs :)
Love it-I'm going to hang it in the kitchen!! always know that we are ok, and things may come up but that we always get through them and things work out, we are being blessed and watched over all of the time, prayers are answered, we always have morning prayer and family prayer :) love the quote :)
So besides getting the news you are staying put, what else happened this week? ever afraid for your safety? when we have been in Mexico we have seen police like crazy, by the truck full, do you see them often?
its incredible how mindful heavenly father is of us :) im super greatful for prayer :) and nope Etla is a pretty peaceful place we see a couple of cops now and then but not a lot!! but when they have bloqueos or road blocks. thats when we need to be careful if we are in the city of oaxaca!!! but we arent there much.. only to go to the offices and the temple. and if there is a road block just say a prayer and get off the bus and start walking with a purpose :)
In preparing to give training at our RS pres meeting Ive come across these scriptures that have stood out...2 Nephi 25:26, Alma 32:41, 43 and Alma 14:2-3 Just thought I'd share :) how is that lady you helped last week that needed a visit?
just noted them down! and she is doing alot better shes happy and she seems to be doing fine:)
So glad :) just remember you wear the armor of God, however, you are mortal :)haha! do you get to go to the temple soon? did you get to say good bye to Sis Mitchell before she leaves this week? were you still in the same zone?
haha and you too!!! and kind of.. i think we get to go the next week!! im not for sure but i think so!! do you write marcus or brayden!? or just me ;) and we were in the same zone yes!
sometimes I write Marcus, only wrote back and forth once, haven't heard from Brayden, how is he doing? I see his picture on FB every now and then, but haven't heard from him, do you write them?
marcus is training and so i dont think he has a lot of time to write.. doesnt write me alot either.. and bradyen is doing great and loving life :)
Do you want me to forward you his email to us? how is the family search stuff going? do the members do it too? Do the people you teach every associate the BofM with their heritage? Does it click that Christ came to their part of the world?
no its ok :) haha but its ok.. i need to get better at trying to do it.. the first few times were hard so i kind of gave up a little but the next time im going to bring my booklet and fill it out :) some of them dont believe it and others are like wow.. no way how!!!???? and ya we get the foot in the door and we teach ;) ha
well mom its that time again.. thanks again and again for chatting with me!! i am happy and almost healthy but im taking care of the body and i am going to by pills to help. and i hope you guys are heppy and have a fantastic week! thanks for you love and support! and the prayers! sometimes its a little harder to put the foot in front of the other.. but i feel like i have alot of hands behind me to push me and keep me walking ;) thanks so much love and hope you guys have a great week! :)
Love you too, Justeroo, keep chin up and know that we love you and Heavenly Father loves you soooo much!! We are so proud of you and I treasure our chats, hope that you will chat with me still when your home :) Have a super week, lots of miracles are in store, continue to walk with a purpose and have a heart full of joy and happiness!!!
