Just a Little Reflection

Well, another good week for the records! We have some really great things happening. Boris loves the church. He still won`t accept his date because he doesn`t want to pay tithing, but he`ll get there. We contacted 20 families in the street this week. Working with two new families and lots of appointments set up for next week. It wasn`t blazing hot (rained like crazy but hey, better than the Cusco sun). Hna Hill is doing great! She`s ready to finish her training next week. I`m so proud of her. Just lots of good. 

The rest of this email is just gonna be a nice short, one year kind of look back. 

A year goes by really, really fast. And six months goes by even faster. Time to work harder and make everything I`ve learned in this past year worth something. I feel like I`m more motivated to work harder now than I was when I first got here with that "greenie" attitude. Now I know what I`m doing and I realize how precious time is. The Lord has helped me so much. Even when I was being stubborn or lazy or whatever else, He`s helped me so that I could get to this point. 

The church is true. I`ve met people every day this past year who deny it, but it`s true. Those who will listen will change their lives. I`ve seen it first hand. More than that, it`s changed me so much since last February. Still the same me, but so much closer to my Savior. Maybe I took it for granted before my mission, but I love the gospel. He did everything for us, for me, and the least I can do now is work harder and closer to Him. 

Short and sweet. Somehow I always manage to lose whatever I wanted to say when I get to the computer. The important thing is that I`m still happy and I still love being a missionary. I`m starting to think of ways I can avoid getting on the bus six months from now... :)

Love you,

Happy Valentines Day 
Hna Hill thought it would be funny to tape this up on the ceiling above my face . . .
