Letter #83 - "We are always blessed for our best efforts..." - Palo Gordo, Guatemala

well this is kinda weird writing to you when i didnt get any emails from you except for a few funny pics of sam and zac dressed as shieks hahaha!!

well any way this last week was christmas and it was fun.  we had a little get together as a zone, ate some pizza, had a gift exchange, and played some basketball (i played in some sweet fake jordan shoes i bought for like 10 dollars hahaha). then we visited some members, ate a ton of tamales and then, of course at midnight lit off fireworks like all of the guatmalans do.  the funniest thing was that i was counting down til midnight and did so like this - 9 8 7 6 4 5 2 1! so yeah i blame it on the cold and that i was exhausted.  haha

besides that this was  a normal week - to be honest there isnt really that much to report especially because you wont be getting this email until next week - hahaha!  there is one thing i learned this week and that is that we are always blessed for our best effort and for our patience.  i love what it says in these 2 scriptures, im sure i have shared these before but i just love them so much:

D&C 103:36
 36 All victory and glory is brought to pass unto you through your diligence, faithfulness, and prayers of faith.

D&C 123:17
17 Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.

well have a wonderful week
