Thirty-first Week - February 23, 2015

What's up? 

Normal week here in Nicaragua, nothing much happened.  I got my package on Friday, thanks so much.  You guys are the best.

Anyways, I didn't get transferred, neither did Elder Page, so this will be our 3rd change together.  So I am still here in Ticuantepe!  I really liked the heart cards, one thing that stuck out to me was from my little homie Cole Ashworth.  "They will learn as much from you as you learn from them."  It's super true.  

This past week we went to Managua 3 times... We had stake conference this weekend and had to take our investigators all the way there.  It is way far away.  No one really wanted to go cause it is so far away, but oh well, the mission isn't always about having success.  If it were that way, we would never learn anything.

Also, today is a big day for me, 7 MONTHS!  WOW!  Time is going super fast!  I have learned a lot these first 7 months. 

I have a video called "Missionary Work and the Atonement."  It's amazing.  For Family Home Evening you guys need to watch it!

This week I want each of us to recognize a weakness that we have, and focus on this weakness for the week and how can we improve with this weakness that we have.  If we do that each week, we will develop many Christlike attributes and have a stronger testimony. Each day we need to strengthen our testimonies in every way.  Gain a better relationship with our Heavenly Father.  As we focus on what is important in life, we will see miracles and be much happier.  "When you live right, magic happens" -Austin Collie.

As far as work this week, it was normal:  Walking and walking and a little bit more walking. We didn't really find anyone super positive, but we are still working super hard!  I'm sorry I didn't have much today.  I'll try better next week.  But hope you all have a good week.  Love you so much and thanks for all the support you give me.  In my life i have learned that true happiness comes from giving and not receiving.  Helping other people makes us think of who we really are.  It's impossible to not become a better person by helping someone-- especially bringing the gospel in their lives.  Do something to help someone.  By Small and Simple things, great things are brought to pass.
