18 Febrero 2015

Hey all! So I haven't written in like a month I think. Sorry about that. I've been crazy busy every Monday when I have the chance to write but hey! I'm writing now so that's good. As far as things here are going, its awesome as always. Seriously though, things are quite rad.

First of all it rained. Twice. In the past month, which this is kind of a big deal. Not just a sprinkle but a couple hours of downpour. It was awesome, amazing I loved it. I'll put pics of things in the week to come because long story short I left my camera in someone's house and I won't be able to get it back until much later but they will come, because who wouldn't want to see my gorgeous face am I right?

Also I have a new companion. On the mission here you're with a the same person for 6 weeks to about 6 months, essentially 24/7. The guy I was with, Elder Gonzalez is on his way to San Louis Potosi where he lives cause his two years are up. the guy I'm with now is Elder Macabe from Utah. As far as I can tell he's a fly guy. It'll be a good time with him although I fear all my progression with the Spanish accent will deteriorate.

I'm doing lots of walking talking walking and talking. its pretty cool actually. Lots of interesting people.
I was talking this one girl who is a member for only a few years and asked her why she joined. She explained that she got a Book of mormon. (A book of scripture similar to the bible we have in our church. It's the history of God's dealing with the people in the Americas while the Bible is the history of God's dealing with people in Jerusalem the Middle East and what not). She started reading because she liked to read and after a week of reading here and there her mom was like, you seem different, like calmer, happier I don't know. It's cool though. 
I liked this because it just reinforced a scripture i like a lot, Moroni 7:12-16.

 12 Wherefore, all things which are good cometh of God; and that which is evil cometh of the devil; for the devil is an enemy unto God, and fighteth against him continually, and inviteth and enticeth to sin, and to do that which is evil continually.

 13 But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; wherefore, every thing which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve him, is inspired of God.

 14 Wherefore, take heed, my beloved brethren, that ye do not judge that which is evil to be of God, or that which is good and of God to be of the devil.

 15 For behold, my brethren, it is given unto you to judge, that ye may know good from evil; and the way to judge is as plain, that ye may know with a perfect knowledge, as the daylight is from the dark night.

 16 For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

Basically if something is inviting you to do good things, its good and you will find life easier, have chiller times and all that jazz. It's super cool right? Do good and you'll get good in return. Sometimes it is that simple.

Have an awesome week everyone and I'll write soon! love you all tons and hope you all do something memorable and fun ASAP!
