Random pic of me I found on this elders camera!
 Sweet. It's during out leadership meeting.

Whoa.  Sorry.  Last week I took too long at a soccer activity that was an hour and a half away and we weren't able to email. Now I gotta tell yall how two weeks went.

Honestly. It feels like it's been four days since I last emailed.  The weeks are super meshed together.  It's almost the end of another transfer and I'm going to turn into an old missionary next transfer since I hit my year mark.  Crud.  I'VE ONLY HAD TWO AREAS! THERE'S NO WAY THAT I CAN BE OUT FOR A YEAR!  I'm not an old missionary. Every time somebody asks me how long I've been out after my year mark, I'm just going to say "Oh, just over a year."  I won't be an old missionary.  It's not possible.

So yeah the Gomez family is doing super good since being baptized!  The two kids went to mutual last week and brought 4 other friends.  It was sweet!  We now are going to start teaching they're friends and their families!  It's been awesome!  The Lord is blessing us with families to teach!  It's been so exciting and rewarding to see our faith and works and prayers and studies and everything we do out here in the mission pay off!  I've said it before and I'll say it again: This is the most satisfying thing I've ever done in my life.

I'm about to finish the Book of Mormon.  I'm reading the rest of Ether and Moroni right now.  I've studied it a bit differently than I have before.  I've read it trying to imagine Moroni writing all those things down. Alone. Wandering. Nobody with him.  It's interesting to study the Book of Mormon through the eyes of the writers. You can see them writing something down and just hoping and praying that we read it. That we use it. That we change our habits and ways of thinking because of it.  You can relate any story in the Book of Mormon to something you are going through.  Here's a few things I've discovered and learned as I've read through the Book of Mormon these past two months.
Moroni: We are never truly alone.
Alma the Elder and his son Alma: We can receive help from heaven with those that we love.
Nephi: No matter how righteous you are, you are going to have trials. Endure them with faith.
Teancum: Anger is not a good reason to kill somebody.
Moroni: Freedom is always something to fight for.
And a bunch of others.

Hey. If you just read this you just got BOM-med: Book of Mormon bombed. You gotta read the Book of Mormon within the next 6 months.  It's going to bless your life immensely. That's an easy promise to make seeing as every single prophet since forever has promised us that.

Love you all!  Have a great week!
