My Week was Good

Another week in the glorious missionary work.  Everyone should go on a mission, it is the only way to really understand how amazing it is.  
We were able to say goodbye to Alejo before we moved areas.  He is a special kid.  He says that he is happy because he is in the true church.  You`re right buddy.  We also said goodbye to Liliana and we ended up cutting her grass in her front yard at 9:00 at night.  Service until the end is the best way to do it.  It is a great feeling.
Tuesday we did the move to our new area, and then in the afternoon we went on a trip to Concordia.  A city about 6 hours away from Santa Fe.  In Concordia we were able to share an awesome story with the 20 missionaries that are in that zone.  We read Acts 8:26-40.  This story just brought the spirit like a flood.  You should all read it.  
These are my favorite verses:
36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
There are people all over that are ready to be baptized.  We just need to find them and explain to them the perfect doctrine of Christ.  I love the faith and the willingness of this man, the eunuch.  ``I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.``  Powerful.  It was an awesome experience.  The numbers in the zone have moved up a lot this week.  We are increasing our faith! VAMOS!  It was a great trip.
Elder Llanos and I are wandering around in our new area.  It is so awesome.  It is a neat experience to be in a place that you have never been and expect to get yourself around.  It is fun.  The best way to learn how to swim is to jump in the water.  Well, since day 1 in the mission, I have been tossed in the water about 80 times.  Can I swim yet?
I want to leave you all with a scripture. Alma 34:32 "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors."  This scripture has been helping me lately to just focus on the work.  We have to focus on the day and what we have to do today.  Because today is the day to get the job done.  We can`t change the past, and we shouldn`t be too anxious for the future, we just have to enjoy the day, enjoy the moment, and get to work.  I love you all a ton!  I hope that you have a great week!
