Courage Is The Little Voice That Says I'll Try Again Tomorrow

Picture of houses here in Florida Uruguay!

Hola Familia!!!

Sounds like everyone is back into school mode and the usual schedule. I have also heard that it is flippin cold there, haha suckas. I love reading about home. Sounds like all of you are doing so awesome with your new callings! Haha I can't believe that about Brandon, I just love the way he describes stuff. I really do have such an awesome group of friends, they are such great examples to me! And I have a fam that is pretty darn cool.

So I have just been realizing that I probably only have like two weeks left here in Florida. It's so weird cause I have been here my whole mission, but I'm excited for what is going to happen. I really have been realizing what a blessing it has been to train. I'm not going to lie, it has been harder than I thought. But definitely worth it. I just hope that Elder Cruz can learn and progress. I have actually seen a lot of progress in him, and we are getting along a million times better than we were. 

Something that I have realized about success in the mission... (well it's something that I have always known but I have felt the truth of it!) I've realized that if we do all we can, then at the end, whatever we have are extra blessings. I was talking to Elder Canete last night just about training and everything cause he is probably going to leave Florida too. I told him you know we haven't had many baptisms or many investigators that are progressing, and something that I have realized is that if I feel that I have done everything I can I am more than content with the outcomes no matter what they are. Obviously I am going to be sad if people don't progress or get baptized, but it really just comes down to if we did all we can. However, I think to myself a lot when I look back on the day that I could have done things different or we could have worked harder. But there was one night when I was thinking that, and a quote came to my head that says, ¨Courage is the little voice that says I'll try again tomorrow¨ I've realized that thinking to much about the past and what has or hasn't happened doesn't help me. What does help is learning what I could have done better and then doing it. As a zone we have plans to study about praying with faith in Preach My Gospel, and I acknowledged pretty much the same thing that we should pray with faith and believe in what we ask for but then get out there and do all we can. I really have grown to love the mission, it's the best.

Anyways about investigators, Mirtha came to church for sacrament meeting and said she really liked it and it seems to me that her interest is gradually growing which is so awesome. We are hoping that we can help her to get baptized on the 25th this month, I know we can do it. Other than her there is not much, oh actually one of the new investigators that we found last week may be interested!  We talked with her husband and they are awesome people and seem really interested in what we have to say, we have a charla with them this Saturday so we will see and I'll let you know about them.

Well I can't figure out how to download photos on this comp. sorry next week:)

I love you more than you will ever know!!!
