I am from Reno, NV and have been called to serve in the South Carolina Columbia Mission! I report to the Provo MTC on January 7th, 2015. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve. I cannot wait to start this 18 month adventure. I have a testimony of this gospel and want those who read this blog to feel the same love that I have felt from my Father in Heaven.

Hola mi familia y amigos,
Where do I even start this week. I have to say that this week was another week full of blood, sweat, tears, wrecks, lightening, rain and whatever you think I went through because I probably went through it. BUT thats not to complain simply a fact. So now I will tell you why.
Back it up all the way to Wednesday, we had a decent day and went to our lesson with Eshmel. We got about 5 minutes into the most spiritual lesson ever and then.. BOOM. We hear a loud crash. ( We all know Im oblivious so I didnt hear anything.) Eshmel gets up and says "Um your car just got hit." What. So anyways we took care of all that legal jazz and lost a ton of teaching time. For the sake of time, I will spare you all the details after that but the time lost definitely threw me off.
Eshmel and Jeremy both came to church which was a happy dance moment. Then Jeremy proceeded to drop us after church so that stung. But its called trials for a reason. Emotional rollercoaster of the week. BUT emails definitely are supposed to be happy so I will end with the spiritual happy things.
Randall wants to be baptized. My companion is awesome. She came to the mission field with optimism engraved into her soul. I love it. I love the rainstorms of the south. I thought nothing could compete with spring storms in Rexburg.. Wrong. These are the best! I have a roof over my head. Food in my belly. Im just grateful for all the blessings I have in this life. Im grateful for challenges because its up to us to make the most out of them. You either complain or you learn something. I learned that miracles are right around the corner every time. Optimism. The restored gospel is evidence of Heavenly Father's love. I love the gospel and this can change every one's life. Its changed mine. Its true.
This week I want everyone to watch this easter video again from a couple years ago. Its great and it just makes you feel happy :)
