Hey Family!!!!!!
It really sounds like everything is going well up there. I am really proud of you mom for your efforts on reading and for really trying hard to complete your goals!!! You too dad!!! what you are doing is really really important and there are many  many people being blessed for the service that you are doing!!!!!!!!
I think that is cool about Erik and his cruz!!!! That sounds super fun and i hope that they have fun!!!
This last week we had interviews with the President and then we also had a little meetting witht the assistants and the President. It was a goood reunion all in all. I love talking to the President and you can really sense the love that he has when you talk with him. He talked about the mission and how it is the place where we need to learn and try to become more like Chirst. It was a great talk that he gave and i felt edified afterwards!!
Right now, Las Flores is going good. We are able to have a good number of lessons every week and the investigators are progressing, or at least i like to think of tham as progressing. I am starting to grow a stronger love for them and the people here. It is hard sometimes, but it is always worth it. If there is anything that i have learned in the mission it would have to be patience. and I know that everybody progresses at ther own rate and will progress if we have hope and help them.
I am doing good and it has rained here for the past couple days, but not without stopping. The clouds here look sooo beautiful and it is fun walking around in the limits of the area looking for people in the good weather.
I love you all and you are all in my prayers!!! I hope that everybody can continue to progress and reach their goals!!!! I hope that eveybody is safe and that we can all have the Spirit to inluence us in our lives!!!
