Your color run sounds so cool! You kiddos should really enjoy your awesome youth activities, because such things are not experienced by all the youth of the church, the world over! Also, good luck on your permit test, Ethan!
So the past week was roooough. And really, a lot of it was my own doing. I´ve been trying to figure out how to improve my service, and sometimes my comp and I still struggle. So bascially there was a lot of despairing in my on weaknesses and wallowing in self-pity. But I did recieve LOTS of inspired thoughts, and read lots of inspired talks, and recieved lots of love and encouragement from my zone. And I have come to this conclusion. If I am trying (which I am) and I have the Savior and Lord of the entire Universe on my side (which I do) then why am I so discouraged? I can live the Gospel, I can try to improve myself, I can serve others and give my all joyfully. With hope, and with faith, knowing that everything is going to be fine. Yes, there is a ginormous list of things about my life I need to improve. But I don´t have to improve it all at once, and I don´t have to do it alone. And life is hard, the mission is hard, but we don´t need to dwell on that, because it only makes you miserable. We can choose to be happy. I´ve kind of been learning that this whole time, and I´m sure I will continue to learn it for the rest of my life, but right now, it´s at the forefront. And that just great :)
Yesterday was the transfer meeting, and Hna. Marrero and I are both still in Navarrete, which is awesome. I get more time to serve the ward here and communicate better with my companion. This will be a good transfer :)
I love you soooooo much, and I pray for you. Please take care, and stay close to the Lord!
