Hola familia!

This week has just been great. It was a slap in the face and call to repentance for me. We have had a few meetings and trainings that got me to wake up a little bit more and go to work. We have two progressing investigators and that's it. We dropped all the others and we are starting over. We have been in our area the last two nights and we will be there tonight as well. We have been all over our area, walking, knocking, talking, teaching, and inviting. Probably for about at lest 3+ hours every night. While we have been outside, the temp has ranged any where from 98 to 106 degrees. Today, we bought hand held fans.

Our Zone t-shirts
We come home EXHAUSTED every night. Some nights were successful and other nights not so much. But that's missionary work. It's just not their time yet. The scriptures in Doctrine and Covenants and the Book of Mormon come to mind:

"Yea, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess before him. Yea, even at the last day, when all men shall stand to be judged of him, then shall they confess that he is God; then shall they confess, who live without God in the world, that the judgment of an everlasting punishment is just upon them; and they shall quake, and tremble, and shrink beneath the glance of his all-searching eye (Mosiah 27:31)."

This is The Church of Jesus Christ. I feel so privileged to put a missionary tag on everyday and preach to my brothers and sister. Sorry this was is so short. I am tired and going to take a nap! :) I love you all!
