So a lot happened this week, I have two highlights good and bad. I{ll start with the bad.....
So Pablo didn{t get baptized yesterday like we had planned. There were some.....obstacles. He was super upset and crying and everything.... It was sad..But! We are working for this coming week! He has suchhh a desire to change and be a part of the Gospel. He so willing, its definitely a testimony builder. We realized that its better we make sure that everything is set in stone and really ready before he makes this decision in his life. Its just that in this ward we{ve realized that a LOT of people have been baptized here and then like right after, they go inactive. So we{re trying to avoiddddd that! But ya, that was the sad highlight. The HAPPY highlight is that we went to GUADALAJARA for the temple! It was so crazy. It took 5 hours to drive there without stops and when we went for the 6 in the morning to go in, there was a fat line outside of people waiting to go in! Turns out this temple is super small and its not always opened so when it is, its just PACKED. But at the end of things it was sooo nice to have the opportuinty to go in the temple during my mission. I missed that spirit and that peacefulness.
Oh ya, and, I hit 8 months today in the mission. Dont really know what I think about that, but it just shows how fast the time is flyinggggg. Im loving the mission. Seeing other people change for the gospel and also the person Im becoming as I learn from others around me. It{s a beautiful experience. Hard, but beautiful. I love you all and hope everything is going well in the real world :)

“Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better. … My declaration is that this is precisely what the gospel of Jesus Christ offers us, especially in times of need. There is help. There is happiness. … Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. … It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come. … Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.” -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
