Week 51- RAIN

Welcome to week 51 that just means life just keeps going on.

Hope you are all well and all having a great Day. here it is the Mexican Independence day. so there are just a few partying people. haha its a good day to party i guess good day to spend it with family that's what they are all doing. so that sounds just like the 4th of July doesn't it? its because they both are great days!!!
This week we are talking about RAIN!!!!! it has rained everyday in September except yesterday. but this week the rain came down all week long!!
everyday all day, well just about all day everyday so yesterday was nice because everything could dry out just a bit as well as us!!!  it got a little warmer yesterday because  it has been a little chilly sometimes. but ya what a good week it was except the fact that some people told us to come back because they didn't want us to get their house wet and they also told us not to get wet and to not get sick. wouldn't these things be the best reason to let us in? haha oh well we tried not to do all of those things but how are you not supposed to get wet when you are under the buckets of rain that are coming down.

This week was great on the studying side I really learned a lot about being an example.

"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to areading, to exhortation, to doctrine.  Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.  Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both asave thyself, and them that hear thee."

It is just a great thing to be!!! Don't you think? BE an EXAMPLE. what does it mean to be an example. well out here where I am they say that we are examples or more like lights that attract everyone!! They then joke and say its because we wear white! and we are just like OK that's a good thing but they are really hard to keep clean. haha no its not because of that its because we are the people who are closer to Christ said one sister in our ward she then said its because every young man wants to be like us because as we sing in primary we are trying to be like Jesus and well what better way to be more like Christ than to be like the missionaries. so I thought that was pretty cool. But i remember this when it was a youth theme for the year. Be an example of the Believers...It was actually pretty great to be reminded that we are all examples of the love Christ has for us. We are examples of what we are and what we can become. the neat thing we had this week was we taught two new young men well they are in their 20s and well they have had a person or two from the church, both are young women around their age, haha funny how they have an affect on young men haha! and well both of these guys have gone to church and to institute because they wanted to know why these young girls are the way they are. one of them named Jorge told us that he saw something in the way they act and the way the are that really caught his eye. the other one told us that they were always there for him and always just there for an answer to a question. now one of them are taking a class at institute and you would never guess what it is.... its the marriage for eternity class. haha I guess this girl wants to save this mans life haha. its sort of funny isn't it but its actually changing his life he loves hearing the word of god and well both of them have baptismal dates for the 28th of September and they seem to be ready. and well they are new people to teach but they aren't new to the church because well they where attending church since the beginning of august but in a different ward. but its amazing what a good example can do isn't it?  so well lets look for the opportunity's to be a good example and to be like this two sisters and find people and help them to go on the right path that will change their lives forever. 

Well this week will be a good week i just know it!!! lets be EXAMPLES this week and well forever. lets be examples of the believers in all the things we do!!!

Hope you have a great week!!! Love you all!!!
