So something I've been thinking about a lot lately is listening. What people say is really important. Everything we say reflects off of our thoughts. So, by hearing and understanding what people say we can understand what they want, think, or need. So, listen to others. Take advantage of the fact that we understand what the words mean that are coming out of their mouths, haha. Spanish is actually coming alright. The day will come where I will be fluent. It's just there are so many people, and all of us are people, and we all want to be heard, but if we all are talking then there will be no understanding and nobody will be heard, so listen.
This past week was hard. We meet so many awesome people the previous week, and I was so excited for this week. But then, appointments dropped, calls weren't answered, and it was rough.
But I'm not discouraged. We are working with a man named Santos. He's having a hard time. He was living with his sister, but she kicked him out and now he is living with his brother and his job is pretty unstable. But he is cool. He is a quiet guy and we have met with him 3 times. He has started reading the Book of Mormon and I'm excited for him.
I Love Y'all.

I Love To See The Temple!

We went to the Temple last Tuesday and it was wonderful! It truly is the House of the Lord and I wish I could've stayed there forever. I have pictures but I forgot my camera in the car.
Oh, by the way I will have a car my entire mission (not trying to rub it in or anything Elder Harmon the older). But since we have to find the places where Hispanics are and can't just go anywhere we get cars.
Other than that everything is awesome! We are teaching two families wonderful families!
Family 1 (don't know their last name yet)
Dominga - a single mother with
Paula - 16
Arianna - 10-13ish
Steven 10-13ish
Alison: 5 or 6
They are wonderful and ready to make changes in their lives.
The Gallardos
7 hijas (daughters) I still need to learn their names.
I Love You All. Have a great week.

I made it safe and sound to Georgia. It's beautiful out here, very humid (which doesn't really bother me), and my companion is awesome. My companion is Elder Bradshaw from Orem, he's really smart (31 ACT) (by the way I don't go around asking everyone that, but... I find out somehow), he has a good memory and is really good with numbers (nice for addresses and cellular devices and stuff like that), he works hard, knows Spanish, and all those great things. We are both new to our area, Cunningham, so this first week has been slow. We have spent a lot of time trying getting to know people and figure out where to go and what to do. It's especially hard for me because I'm constantly trying to just understand what people are saying. By the way there are a lot of Hispanic people here in Georgia. I've had a lot of Mexican food and it's AWESOME! Last night I probably put down ten taco thingys with rice and meat. Oh, and one night a member made us some handmade tortillas. Yep, you don't need fried chicken when you in the south, you only need some Mexican food. It's pretty good.
I love it here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. This Gospel is TRUE! I know I say that everytime, but that's because it is. I gave a blessing, (the second blessing I have given, and it was in English) to a man who we found while we were knocking on doors. I tell you this only to let you know that I KNOW that I hold the priesthood and that priesthood comes directly from GOD. God lives! He knows us, he knows you. Look to him in all that you do and he will help you. This past week I started to turn inward and to think more about myself. It was getting hard with the Spanish and the newness of everything. Whenever I talked I was more worried about whether I was saying things right or what I was doing wrong instead of thinking about the person I was talking to. I became more focused on myself than others. People see me differently. I'm no longer a human, I'm a missionary. I can see that in peoples eyes. Some people immediately hate me and don't want to hear a thing I say. Others look upon me with respect. But in either case I started to become self centered. So I challenge all y'all to focus on the people around you. Look to God! Serve him! How do you serve God? by serving each other!
I Love Y'all
