Week of July 7

I have loved hearing about all the friends, family, food and
adventures in a familiar home away from home. It looks like this trip
is shaping up to be one of the best ones yet. I hope that next year
you stay for three weeks again, then maybe I can come up and visit
twice. Whatever happens I am coming with.

-This week it POURED RAIN. We said as we got out of the car, "lets go
get persecuted in the rain!" because that is what Elder Ballard said
is the best response when he visited our mission a little while ago.
We went and tracted for about an hour and everything that was not
waterproof became completely saturated with water. Even with the rain
we were not able to get into anyones house which was unfortunate, but
soon we will find our family that is ready to be baptized. That is
what I pray for all the time. I want to find, teach and baptize a
family. I have not been able to do that in my mission yet. It has only
even been parts, or loose ends of families. I want to bring an entire
family the Gospel.

-The chocolate bar you sent is quite delish. The whole coconut thing
going on is a great compliment to the dark chocolate. I will love
trying to be a foodie guy when I get home. Here I do the best I can,
but compared to everyone that we eat a variety to vegetables is a
weird things. While on exchanges Elder Macias and I went to a
greek-american fusion restaurant which was way good. I think I like
Mediterranean food, well it makes me feel really good at least. I need
to get over this milk allergy thing I have got going, it ruins

It is interesting for things to be a little bit on repeat as far as
the mission goes. I just had my second and last Fourth of July. I am
walking around in the hot outdoors daily, for the second and last
time. The most odd of all, is that even though it is many months away,
I quickly and surely close in on the time I have left here on my
mission. I will be ready for it to end when it comes(i think). But I
sure do not want it to be over tomorrow, nor next month. I have to
much to become and to much to learn to just be done now. I want to
bust my butt to keep changing. I am pretty sure I have said it before,
but I will say it again. I think the biggest way I have changed is
that I want to be more like Christ. I want to become a better person,
I see in a much more achievable vision of who I want to become. Before
that wasn't always apparent in my life, but now I think it will be

That is one of the things I love about the pureness of the Gospel. It
paints the vision for what is ahead of us. It then often shows us what
to do to get there.

peace out, enjoy the great out doors and do stupid things.
