el 11 de Enero

thanks for all of your prayers, i really have gained a strong testimony about 
the power of prayer since i have gotten out on the mission. absolutely nothing 
that can take it´s place. we had.... wait for it.... ten investigators in church. 
absolutely fantastic to see the blessings of hard work and trust in the lord. 
now to just have the same success this next week!
we don´t have p-day today, because wednesday we are going to the beach!
 i will explain more next week with pictures!
my companion´s spanish continues to progress. if you are the praying kind, it´s 
always nice to have a little bit of extra help. we are getting along great, even though
 she is someone completely opposite of what i am.
but really great news guys.... my memory is all clean and healthy and not a bug in 
sight! with all my pictures present and accounted for! i am soo excited! also found 
out that i have taken over three thousand pictures on my mission... yea, that's 250 
pictures a month roughly. and i still have a ton of room left on my camera!
most tender mercy... yikes. there were a lot. but probably having ten investigators 
in church and having the members´ help every step of the way. there are not enough 
words to exhort every one of you to do your part to help your missionaries bring 
people to church, fellowship, or even sit with your investigators. it makes everything 
so much easier as a missionary when the missionaries and the ward can work in unity 
to bring people to Christ. there is no other alternative.
one of my favorite scriptures from this week... 2 nephi 31:20-21

::ye must press forward with steadfastness in Christ, having perfect brightness of 
hopeand love of God and of all men.Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting 
upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall 
have eternal life. And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the wayand there is 
none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom 
of God.::
it´s a powerful scripture that teaches us the power of enduring to the end. there really 
is no other way to enter into the kingdom of heaven. just through our obedience and 
our steadfastness in Christ.
some goals... speak spanish to sister naumu. read the scriputres at night, and don´t fall 
asleep after we plan. it´s killing my neck and i wake up before the alarm which drives me 
i love you all!
a couple of the delicious plates of food we have eaten this week!
