10... 9... 8...

Hey Everyone!!
Well...  It has been a great adventure up until now.  I am excited to see how these last 10 days play out.  I have been trying to do my best every day.  That is all that I can do this last week of my mission.  If we do all that we can, then God will do the rest.  We will never be able to do all things by ourselves, but that is why we have our Savior Jesus Christ.  ``For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son.  That whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.``  A great lesson that I have learned on my mission is that I am nothing.  But God can make me something.  
We had quite a few miracles this week.  I think that the greatest miracle of all is that we had 6 investigators in church!!!  All 6 of them are from the Familia Cortez.  They are progressing!!  They all tell us that they know that the restored gospel is true.  They will be baptized someday, we just do not know when yet!  There is no better feeling than having investigators in church and participating of the sacrament with them.  It is one of the greatest joys as a missionary.  It makes you feel like all of the hard work during the week paid off!
We are teaching quite a few people!!  The Lord is blessing us with people who are ready to listen.  I have been focusing a lot on having love for everyone.  I have a goal to treat everyone as if they were Christ, as if I were serving the Master Himself.  Matthew 25:40 ``Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.``  Sometimes I get frustrated with some investigators but the Lord has been blessing me with compassion and mercy.  I can think of four occasions this week where I showed patience and then taught the people with love.  I felt the spirit strongly every time.  It was beautiful.  Being a missionary is amazing.  I am going to miss it.  My goal this week is to be happy.  I will let you all know how it goes!! :)
I share my testimony that I know that the Church is true.  I know that Christ lives.  I feel His comfort and love especially during this point of time in my life.  I am so grateful for the mission.  I am so grateful for the 10 days that I have left to serve.  I am grateful for my family.  Gratitud y gran loor, te rendimos oh Señor.
I love you all!!! See you soon.
