Letter #76

Hey Family!

First of all; if I did not reply to y'all this week then I am sorry! We have a Zone Activity and we are not able to be on for too long this morning. However, I hope you all can read this instead! :)
Man, I can't believe it already happened! I can remember just 6 months ago when Kevin and Crystal got engaged!! Now I will go home in less that 6 months! Time sure does fly! That is so cool of all that has happened for you all in the last weeks! Not too much has happened out here in the mission!

The Guillen family just got the machine that they needed for their son, and they will be flying out to El Salvador to give it to him! The cool thing is that they were able to come to church this week!! It was awesome! It just happened to be the Sunday for the ward Primary Program! Everyone loved it! The theme was "Families can be Together Forever"... it was a little sad to listen to what the kids were saying because it made me "trunky" (wanting to go home) but it was still really good! We had a lot of people go to support and watch the kids! There were a couple of English speaking people there too, and they watched it and they seemed to like it even though they did not understand what was being said!

Our trip to the Temple was super cool! I learned a lot; and surprisingly. I didn't fall asleep! Hahah I sat right next to President Ashton in the session and I think that helped make it very spiritual for me! I learned a lot about my identity, and what my goals are and what I need to be doing in my life! We talked about different things like~ Why does God direct Jehovah and Micheal to create everything in the creation! It was cool to learn about that part! It is very simple but very powerful to learn about! Next, we learned about the Atonement and the symbolism of that! I never knew that the Atonement works in everything! In every single thing the atonement is used! I have heard that before, but it never really actually impacted me like it did  hearing it this time at the Temple! We have everything because of the atonement of Jesus Christ!

Like I said before, not much happened this week for us! I did get to talk with the president, and he is having me talk to the specialist about everything going on! After I am done with the interview with him I will be all clear! I don't know exactly what is going on, but I hope to find out soon!

Love y'all!
