Today we found out about transfers and I will be in Guayanilla for another 6 weeks. I will be staying with my companion Elder Merrell also. I like Guayanilla. We have been working alot with the less actives and we have gotten 3 of them reactivated in the church. One of them was the Patriarch for the Stake. I’m happy to stay here and watch people progress because we have worked hard.
Last week we had a Zone meeting and I learned about the importance of obtaining Christlike attributes as a missionary. Faith, Hope, Charity, Patience, Virtue, Humility, Diligence and Obedience. I know as we try to gain these the spirit will accompany us. The spirit is EVERYTHING in this work. So- obtain Christlike attributes equals success in the work.
Learning Spanish has been more fun lately. I have tried to use my personality as I learn it. The people love it and they help me more. Also, the Iguanas here are MASSIVE! I have been trying to catch one but I haven’t got one yet. I hope to get a picture with one soon.
Hey Mom! I hope your birthday was super good! I love you SO MUCH! I have this hippie making something for you and it didn’t get done in time - so hopefully it is done by Christmas. Haha!!
The snow looks super cool! I miss it! I want to SHRED the GNAR at POW MOW so since I can’t - I want all my buds to do it in honor of me! SWEET!
I love you all so much! I really am loving my mission and time is starting to fly by!
