we find out tonight if we have changes or not... i have 3 changes here in jalapa so it might be my turn to get out of my comfort zone... haha.. but i kinda want to stay cuz we have been in this intense rhythm and its working out very good in this area.. one of the things that has helped us a companionship is the preach my gospel teachings.. we have really been following the doctrine to the dot.. and we can see how it takes effect in our missionary work.. this week was very fun and full of work work work... we tore this place apart!! we found a bunch of new families to teach and we had 10 investigators to church!! im glad to hear that everyone is doing great.. feel free to write me a letter. if you write me one ill be sure to write you one back.... before you go to bed every night you should all ask yourselves, did i take a moment today to bless someones life with my testimony or a small act of kindness, or an invitation to a church activity?? if not, pick up the slack, have you forgotten that you are a missionary also.. and this gospel is not just for you...
full time missionaries without the support and hard work of members equals little or no success.... pres. Hinckley said, we are doing great in our missionary work throughout the world. but it is not enough.. DO WORK!! now thats a good motto!!! haha
have a great week...

This is what you call rationalizing,

A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after i draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time." The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona, the other is in Colorado. When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes backto the bar for the second round the bartender says, "I dont want to intrude on your grief, but i wanted to offer my condolences on your loss." The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "it's just that my wife and i joined the Mormon Church and i had to quit drinking." "Hasn't affected my brothers though."
