We sure have been doing a lot of traveling. This week we had our leadership council and the verification of the new missionaries. We also did interviews here in Quito. Yesterday and today we were in Santo Domingo doing interviews and we just barely got back. Lots of traveling. Unfortunately, I don't really have pictures. We just went to the chapel basically. Last night I did divisions with Elder Quinn though. We were in the MTC together and he's a good buddy. He is a zone leader in Santo Domingo right now.  

The gospel has certainly changed my life and the person I am. I'm so grateful for the atonement in my life. It has not only offered me forgiveness for sins committed but a change of heart, a change of character, a change of nature, it has changed the way I think, the way I speak, and act. I will never stop living the gospel. It is hard at times. Sometimes you just get tired, but the atonement has also offered me strength to continue fighting. I want to be the kind of person that I would be willing to go into battle with. To fight next to. I am ponderizing Alma 53:20-21. 

Don't forget to fast! Don't watch the super bowl, keep the sabbath day holy!!

Hey Mom,

This week was pretty crazy. Monday we did our usual office work and we had to get ready for the leadership council. Tuesday we had the leadership council and we trained on raising our vision as missionaries and how to set and accomplish goals. I thought it went very well. Wednesday we had the verification of the new missionaries. It went well, we trained a little bit there as well. Thursday and Friday we were on divisions for a few different reasons. And that was our week up till now. Tomorrow we have changes so we will be starting another busy week!

Other than that all is well! I hope Bryce heals quickly. Thats really going to distract me this week I feel like. Hopefully I can forget about it. 

Love you have a great week!
