Another Update and a Better Mood

I would like to say that I do believe I am in a better mood. I have just had to come to the fact that I may not have baptisms h and that is ok. I can keep my head up because I have put everything into this place!

My little sister, Kenna, owned in Jr. Miss because she won the best prize, 1st Runner-Up, and lots of moola without further commitment. Heck to the ya!!! I am so soo sooo proud of her. All the missionaries in my zone have crushes in her. It is funny. They are always asking for pictures of her. I am also proud of those other two sisters. Be good sisters!

I am still training but my child, in the mission, is still having a hard time. He wants a rest because he has worked a month and deserves a couple days off. I won't let him and so he is mad at me. It is kind of funny. He is a little guy and will hit me then run away. Hahaha

This week the Temple President of Xela came and said "Hi" to us in church. He gave a really cool message that the members, hopefully, listened to because it was on missionary work. They are kind of deaf to missionary work. I've mentioned that before. But we keep on working. I sometimes wonder why it has to be so hard here.

It is crazy how fast the time goes here on the mission. I have been out for almost 10 months. It is insane!!! My Spanish is basically fluent which is so cool!!!

I love you all tons. Sorry there isn't much to write but I'm working on getting exciting experiences. I am going to get a Skype account today and you all should do one too so we can talk and you can see my fat face!!!

Con amor,

I Am Hoping for a Hot Wife

Well, Conference was pretty much like the bomb! I loved it all and it was cool to hear Falabella speak. He's the old Area President here. Even cooler ... Presidente Maravilla is going to be a Seventy. Holy awesome!!! I am pumped to listen to him read a talk in English and mess up on a few words but still teach a ton. He is so cool.

Things didn't go too hot this week but we are continuing to push on. I mean there is nothing else to do but work super hard. There is no point in just giving up. That makes no sense to me. It seems we aren't doing a whole lot to help people but we are sure inviting but I feel it is not enough. On the bright side I have been treating my companion as my best friend and things are going better even though my lack of patience can get in the way. He really is a good kid. He just struggles so much with just about everything.

We did find one problem with the people. Many families hate us because past missionaries wouldn't give them money. Of course, we don't do that. They have gotten it in their minds that we are all bad in this zone. We have to overcome this issue. The mission isn't easy. I sure hope I get a hot wife out of this! Haha *wink* *wink* And I am pretty sure i will be in the mountains until I die. Just trying to be positive and less frustrated.

I heard from a couple mission buddies today. It amazing to think how much time thy have left. It is also awesome to see just how great they are. They are all a great group of kids.

I almost cried when I found out that the darn cat had died. In fact, I am sad. I will probably write that in my journal, first entry in weeks. Love you all tons. PEACE!!!
