Aloha, mi familia y amigos,
Man.... not going to lie... Satan really is fighting me in this area. I still haven’t figured out how I can receive the best amount of success here but I’ll let you know when I find it. Life is hard. Everything isn’t given to us on a silver platter. We need to try and try and try again.
I mean there are many examples of great people who tried something and was great at it. BUT there are many more examples of GREATER people who at first didn´t succeed but kept on trying and trying until they did… like Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Alma, Amulek, and Jesus.
This week I learned a lot about the atonement of Jesus Christ. This week I tried and failed A LOT OF TIMES but I know at one point, God will give me the revelation I need so I can find the best way to help people. I have learned this week, especially from Elder Salazar. He’s helped recapture some of the attributes I have lost. Again, God puts people in your life for a reason! I have a true testimony of that.
We also went with the sisters to help them in their area...IT’S SO WEIRD having sisters in the district... I am so accustomed to go on exchanges but with the sisters, my good old companion just comes with me everywhere. I love that kid but the sisters are pure power... There’s a reason the sisters don’t need the priesthood! LOL!
Well, even though I made a lot of mistakes this week, there’s only one way to go and that is up. I am ready to make more mistakes but I am even more ready to do better… learning more and more of the LOVE of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Sorry... I am not sharing all of the miracles or great experiences. I just feel like I should tell you guys that even though we make mistakes, God is still ready to make us his servants.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. I love you so much!!!

P.S. You asked me about my companion… Yes, he’s TOTALLY Jessica’s size! We mesh really well and he’s way cool.
Also, we are going to be watching General Conference at the ward building and will be trying to get people to come with us and watch it. It will be FUN! Love you!
