Week 51 - Hump Day on July 15th!

Hey everybody! Sorry I didn´t send a weekly email last week... I kinda forgot. My bad.

But not too much has happened these past 2 weeks. Like I said earlier, we are starting from scratch in this area and it´s been a challenge to be able to find an investigator that lets us inside to teach them. We basically spent all day, every day walking a TON! These past few weeks may have been some of the hardest weeks of my mission, but I know that if we are persistent and obedient, Heavenly Father will bless us eventually (hopefully soon!).

The highlight of my week was by far the baptismal interview that I did for a girl named Camila. She has had a REALLY tough life and she´s only 18 years old, but the gospel has completely changed her and she has such a strong testimony! The interview was super spiritual as she testified so strongly, I was blown away!

That´s really just about it, we are in the grind right now to find investigators and get them to church. I know this coming week will be much better!

I know that the church is true with all my heart! I love being a missionary so much, it´s the greatest experience anybody could ever have! Despite the difficulties that we are having right now, I am learning so much! My faith has grown so much, especially in miracles! I know that God can help us do anything if we really dedicate ourselves to it!

Last thought - yesterday I taught Priesthood in church and it was all about temples. We are four hours away from the Cordoba temple here and the members get so excited when they have an opportunity to go. I honestly never took advantage of having a million temples so close to me at home and I really regret it so I hope that all of you guys can put more of an emphasis on that because you´ll be soooo blessed if you go more often!

Thanks for all the support and prayers, I love you all so much! Have a great week!
