Hey everyone!!!

Happy fathers day!!! i hope everyone had a great one!!

I had a good one.  i had to give a talk. and so i prepared a really really great one about our purpose as missionaries. and that is "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism by immersion for the remission of sin, recieving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end."  how great of a purpose is that. But i decided the sunday before that i was gonna talk about Christ because a lot of time we forget about how central christ is in everything.  and so i broke down this purpose by little bit and was gonna talk about every little piece with scriptures and everything. Needless to say i was pretty excited about giving my talk (which NEVER happens...)  and then i got there and i was telling hernan who was gonna speak (its the missionary work people every third sunday...) and presidente Chauque came and said that analia had a talk aobut hte obra misional as well and so she talked instead of me... i shouldve known....

OH well they were really good talks and i learned a lot and i hope it inspires the members to do a little more because we are only 2 missionaries and the ward is huge and a lot of people think that the two of us and presidente are responsable for everything. which isnt true... but oh well.. its nice to know they have confidence in us.

This week actually ended a little rough... but i learned how to relieve stress a little more. and how to be more positive.  Because really. being positive is the most important thing when everything is going bad because honestly. if you are negative it just makes the bad things like 5 million times worse. so dont do it.  Sometimes its harder to look for the good than the bad but hey the best things are never easy.  Hermana levrino sent us a quote about that and overcomeing challenges... its in spanish so youll have to translate it yourself.

i dont know if you can read it.. its really good. its by albert einstein and he talks about how you would never learn anything is everything was easy. 

but thats aobut it for this week. have a great one

les quiero!!
