First of all I need to announce something: last week I wrote in my letter that I was 19. As my mother so kindly reminded me, I am in fact 20 (almost 21). #that´sembarrassing
Just so everyone´s aware.

|Rain. This is called being a legit missionary. (If you can´t tell, we´re soaking wet.)|
Then Hna Ellgen asked if my days were always like this.... #no
But after all that craziness, we actually had a really good week. We found people to teach, we have an investigator progressing, I only caught one lizard in the bathroom...
It was a good week. :)
And this is what I am learning: that life is a game of degrees. Satan doesn´t tempt up us with big leaps into sin, he tries to talk us into lowering our standards just a little bit at a time...until eventually we´re in a lot of trouble. (Go read Alma 47) On the other hand, the best people I know, the really truely good people are that way because the do the little things without fail even when no one is watching. I´ve come to understand that it is the little things we do, not necesarily the big things, that determine who we really are and who we will become.
I love you all! And I Love, Love, Love being a missionary.
¡Vale la pena!
