Happy New Year!

Video call snapshot 1It was nice talking with you on Skype a few minutes ago! haha. However there is always a lot more to tell you about. I have to admit, I don't like to think about how short a mission really is. I only have one phone call home left!!! yikes! I've still been telling people that I have a year until I go home. magari!

On Monday we did exchanges and I was with Anziano Reyes again. That was pretty sweet. The great thing about him is that he always shares personal experiences. I think that for anything we do in the church it's a good idea to reflect on the subject and think of personal experiences that you've had because that way people will be more interested in what you have to say.

New Year's shouldn't be very exciting. haha. We have to be at home by 6pm because it'll be more or less a war zone outside (fireworks), and then New Year's Day we get to clean all day long.

I can honestly say that I push myself and I've been learning a lot. I've learned a lot about the language, the culture, how to drive here, but above all I've learned about my Savior Jesus Christ and how essential He is in all of our lives.We need to always have our Heavenly Father involved in our life. I think that a lot of times it seems difficult with all the commandments, and then trying to have charity for everything, but the thing that is really important is that we are constantly trying to be better people even if we always have lots of weaknesses and room for improvement.

Happy New Year!!!

For this next year I hope that we can all make a commitment to magnify our callings. As a missionary that pretty much means that I have to improve everything I am doing. haha.
