This week was another great week. Today we traveled far far far out into the countryside and explored some really cool caves. We got really muddy. haha. It was fun to go hiking. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera cord so pictures will have to wait until next week.

Being a missionary is something really special. I was reading a conference talk the other day by President Russell M. Nelson called "Ask the Missionaries, They Can Help You," (at least I believe that would be the English translation). It reminded me that being a missionary is a sacred privilege.  I can't quite express how blessed I feel to have the opportunity to serve as a full time missionary. 

I have been remembering why I decided to serve a mission. I am serving a mission because I have witnessed the joy, fulfillment and peace the gospel, and specifically the atonement has had on my life and on my family. I truly want others to have those same blessings. There is nothing better than being in the service of the Lord no matter what phase of our lives we are in or what calling we may have.

This week we taught a really special women. This past year she lost her brother due to a tragic accident. We taught her about the plan of salvation and how she can be together with her brother and family again and forever. At the end of the lesson we asked if we could set another appointment with her. She said Saturday would work because that is when her mom would be there. She wanted us to share the same message with her mom so that she too could find peace and healing. That is what we do when the Spirit touches our hearts and the Savior begins to heal us. We have a deep desire to share it with others. "When thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren," Luke 22:32

I love you all!!!! I invite each of you this week to find ways to share blessings you have with others. As you do, you will see God using you to bless others and He will also bless you abundantly.
