Bolivia here I come!

I don't have a lot of time but i can tell you a couple things! My latino comp is super cool and I've loved having all natives in my district. Super duper hard but i love it. 

My spanish has increased like infinitely. I've been reading the book of mormon a lot and today i read ether and oh dang ether is such a dope book! Its got some great analogies to life when they're crossing the ocean. And also the parts when the kingdom is being fought over teaches us a lot about who we need to be in this life. And especially the sections about faith and seeing Christ are DOPE. read it yo... dog.... haha

Anyway i leave to Bolivia on monday and that's pretty dang exiting! I cant wait to go out and help some people who REALLY need it and who the lord has been preparing. 

So here's a cool thought i had this week. Temples only permit people who have recommends. And recommends say you're worthy, and willing to go in and treasure up the experience and add to the spirit. Our bodies are also temples. And if we want them to be holy we should make sure that everything in it has a recommendOur thoughts, feelings and other things that affect us. If we make sure those things are good and pointing us to the lord, helping us rather than hurting us, we'll be a more holy temple. More receptive to the holy ghost and the lord will dwell within. 

I promise you guys that if you're going through a trial, it can be for your good! Read ether 2:24 and 25. The lord is behind it. Turn to him and he'll help you and bring you back up! Love you all! I'll email when i get to Bolivia!
