Wanna start out with a quick shout out to Sasha: thanks so much for the package!! Super super nice of you to do that!
Holy cow this week went by in a blink. We just walked and walked and walked. We have been updating the information and contacts in the area and we have had a lot of success. We found tons of families that are progressing and have many questions. One of the ladies we are teaching is super excited to talk to us. We taught her half of the Restoration and it took 2 1/2 hours and the next day another 2 1/2 hours to finish it. She asked all about abortion, gays, prophets and every question about the Plan of Salvation without even knowing about it. It's super cool to teach her and see how the spirit guides our thoughts and answers. Every time we testify of the gospel the spirit is palpable and its amazing!
We are finally seeing some of the fruits of all of our hard work. We get to a visit and we are drenched with sweat and it's so funny to see what they all say. We also found a familiy that was in the book as of 6 years ago. We walked the entire street and talked to every single person to try and find this family. Finally, we knocked our last door and a guy answered and said "Missionaries... how are you? Come on in". I definitely learned patience and perseverance with that experience.
I am super grateful to be out here in a Puebla teaching the gospel and learning so much. I know it's true and if we follow the principles of the gospel we are truly happy and can overcome any challenge. Keep grinding and try to find joy in the ride. A quote I LOVE is from President Hinkley: "Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around and shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts dont drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."   
Love you guys!~
