buenas tardes

Something crazy that's been happening is a few of the days this last week we had some strong temblores. Un temblor is like a mini earthquake. At 10 one night there was a pretty strong one. And another night, well maybe at like 3 in the morning, we were fast asleep and our beds started shaking. It actually woke ME up. Those who don't know me.. nothing wakes me up. But everything was shaking pretty hard and it was way cool!! like for 30 seconds or so. That is pretty long for a temblor. I love Guatemala!! so cool!!

So that family that Jose brought to church is so AWESOME. They came to church again and they are totally going to get baptized. They just have to get married first. I know we will see this miracle this month.
We had a cool experience this last week. Elder Duncan, the area president from the 70 talked to us. I love that we can all receive our personal revelation as we listen to the servants of God. I received some revelation about how I can become a better missionary and I'm striving to apply it to become a better instrument in Gods hands. Something else that I was reminded of is explained in one of my favorite quotes. President Gordon B Hinckley said, "Quiere ser feliz? OlvĂ­dese a si mismo y pierdese en esta gran causa." In english... "Do you want to be happy? Forget yourself and get lost in this great cause." Well I am pretty happy so I guess I have gotten myself pretty lost here in Guatemala. But I received some revelation on how I can lose myself even more in this great work.

I also spoke for the first time in this ward. I talked about Charity. A quote that I love from President Monson says, "La verdadera caridad es el amor en accion." It translates to something like... " True charity is love in action." We are here to love like Christ loves!! To serve like Christ serves. So WE NEED TO DO IT.

have a good week!! les amo a todos.
