What a week!
We had interviews this week with the new president and I can already tell that the mission is going to change for the better. I can't express enough how excited I am to have him as a mission president. I've been able to see how much my testimony has grown while being out on the mission...it's grown mountains! I know that when we do things the way the Lord wants, he's OBLIGATED to bless us. Sometimes it's hard...I mean how can waking up at EXACTLY at 6:30AM decide if I have success or not? As hard as it is sometimes...EXACT obedience counts! The president made us a promise that with hard work and exact obedience, we will start to baptize and have success like never before...I have no doubt that it's true...and I'm going to put it to the test.

People just don't seem to be accepting our contacts lately....It gets to the point where I want to explode! If one more person says, "Tengo prisa", "otro día", or "Leo mí Biblia, Gracias"...so help me! These people just don't know what they're missing! Saturday we visited the Lopez Family with the district leaders to do the interviews for their two sons. As we finished, one of the Elders made a comment about having to go and teach some of his investigators. Hermana Lopez commented, "Hey...take the Hermanas with you...and I promise you they'll get baptized!" She then went on about how the Hermanas teach with more power, patience, etc. I don't know how true that is but I'm not saying it's a lie ;) She then asked us a question: "If a complete stranger walked up to you in the street and offered you a bag full of gold, would you accept it?" We thought about it for a few minutes and replied that we would probably be a little nervous to accept it...you'd think there would be other motives involved and we would probably walk away. She then continued by comparing the bag of gold to the message we bring to the people of Mexico. We talk to hundreds of people every week....and almost all of them don't accept us. They're walking away from something worth more than all of the gold in the entire world!!! But there is always someone that's willing to accept our "bag of gold"...and she was one of them.

That's about it for this week! But I love you all!
