This week has been great! It stinks a little though because this will be the last week of this transfer. It's gone by so fast and we continue to get this Ward back on it's feet and to function properly. It has been wonderful and Elder Reese has taught me so much about what's important in life. Fun fact, Elder Reese will actually be going to BYUI when he ends his misión! Sweet!

I've been going on a lot of interchanges with other Elders recently to help them receive the visión of baptism. I've learned a lot in what I need to do also to better captivate this visión for myself. Doing interchanges means a lot of traveling time, so I am just pooped now, ha-ha.

I love seeing all the pictures of  the family because you have changed so much! Mom you have such a big light in you and it is way noticeable to the people around you. Like they say, it's way more effective to share the góspel when you live in accordance with it's teachings. It shows itself through your very person.

I love you guys so much!

This week has been quite an adventure because the arm of my companion was destroyed and we spent the whole week inside getting a bunch of medical stuff figured out. Apparently, he had an allergic reaction and it just progressed until it was not very pretty at all. I've also decided this week that I will not be going into the medical field or for the physical part of it anyways, ha-ha.
 
I love the Temple so much and I testify of the special spirit and blessing that are found ONLY in those doors. The spirit of the Lord that is found in those sacred halls is to intense and potent. I love the mercies that God even has for us His children in which we can feel that special influence in His holy house.

I love you guys!

Our good old buddy, Jose continues to grow closer to his Savior every passing day. I love that old fart. 
We had monthly interviews with President Morgan this last week and it was awesome. He told me that Satan has a personal plan to destroy Elder Parker Pile and he will do anything in his power to make his plan come to pass. However, the Savior has made a way possible to escape with the people here on this earth to help us. With His plan, the Savior's plan we have the power the CHOOSE. Now every time I am faced with temptation no matter how big or small, I ask myself, "Is this what Satan planned for me to bring about my personal destruction?" and usually when I think that the temptation doesn't look very attractive anymore, ha-ha.
Working hard and praying everyday to work even harder.
Love you!
