tha Beach

Coolest thing we have done here so far happened this week. We cleaned up trash on the beach and handed out bags for people to put their trash in and it was just so fun! We hear from everyone how bad the problem is so we decided to do a service with the whole zone and turned out well! It was perty nice to get our feetsies a little wet and just run around for a little while. My poor toes got burnt though cause they havent seen the sun. 

I really dont have much to say this week. sorry haha but something that i have learned that i like to do now is to declare repentance. Not to say hey you are not living right. but i have seen how repenting has helped me in the mission and just how much i need it that now i like to help others feel the same. 

We had no fixed appointments one day and had many temptations to just stay in the room with a fan or do laundry or something but we both were talking during our study that if we leave that god will help us find someone that needs us. It is true that god is in charge of this work. I dont do anything. we found an 18 year old kid juan who went to seminary at the church every night and was preparing to be baptized but the elders had a change and then the next elders didnt follow up with him. lo and behold, he told us that he remembered he could be forgiven completely of his sins. We were able to talk of repentance and baptism. super cool experience. he is ´´un buen muchacho´´ like the people say here. He says he wants to be better so that his little brothers grow up well. 

 30 And we have suffered all manner of afflictions, and all this, that perhaps we might be the means of saving some soul; and we supposed that our joy would be full if perhaps we could be the means of saving some.

This scripture made me happy. it is so true. we dont have to be doing anything bad to repent. we just realize that we love god and have a stronger desire to do more good. 

This branch needs a lot of help and not going to lie sometimes it is pretty frustrating. If missionaries werent here i dont know how they would function, but we are trying to help them the best that we can. 

Love you family
