Hey Everyone, 

This week has been crazy and full of good and well not so good news. But that is mission work. 

We had an investigator who was going to be baptized this Sunday but she drank coffee and so we had to push back her baptismal date. It is always hard to push back a date but it is necessary sometimes so that people can repent. 

This Saturday we have a wedding to go to and after we are going to baptize the family! Wilmer and Yesenia Garcia have put the date for their wedding and baptism and I am so excited. They are a great couple and have a huge love for the gospel. And now, after a lot of time to get things sorted out they are able to get married and baptized! These are the moments we always live for in the mission. All the rejections and contacts and lessons are all taught and done with the objective to bring a soul to God's church. 

Recently they showed a video here about the atonement and missionary work. It really helped me to understand that yeah the mission is tough but what Christ did was harder. Jeffrey R. Holland said (As far as it is translated correctly from my mind) "I am convinced that missionary work is not easy because salvation is not a cheap experience". I know that my savior died for me and atoned for every single one of us and that I have grown closer to my God through this experience. I love you all and hope you have a great month of thanksgiving for all that we have been given.
