Happy birthday involves eggs and flower and a great time here in south america haha! this family let us get their entire house messy with eggs and flower haha! It was a great time. 

This week I learned a lot about patience. In the gospel context it means to obey and enjoy at the same time. Its a hard task but one thing that has helped me is to not try to control something that is impossible to control. Don't let frantic feelings build up inside you and make you easy to anger. Always be full of love and willing to enjoy moments of mistakes. 

This gospel is true and the message changes lives. The world will be given the chance to accept their savior Jesus Christ and I personally will accept him. Ill give all I am to him. My time, talents, obedience, whatever it takes. LOVE YOU GUYS

funny story: Here in Bolivia there's a tradition that the people kiss each other on the cheek when they see each other. We have an investigator that lived his whole life in america except for two years here in Bolivia. He came to church and he went in to kiss the sister missionary on the cheek and the sister almost kissed him back but right before, she realized and grabbed his shoulder pushed him away and yelled NO hahaha! everyone was embarrassed and red cheeked hahaha!

Increase your personal faith

This week was the best week of my mission until this point. 

I went to the meeting where all the leaders of the mission go to hear president and his latest advice and revelations for the mission. Something he asked us was when is the last time you guys have prayed for a miracle?

This week my prayers have been with more faith and that motivated me to work with extra diligence, obedience and faith. I found success, but more importantly, joy.

I love the work and I'm enjoying every second of it. LOVE YOU GUYS

Come to God

In the Book of Mormon, an observation is that the people that come to God are either granted their desires or given trials. Life is the same way. God wants us to be humble before him so he can strengthen us and grant us our desires. 

I love you guys and I´m thankful for your support and I challenge you all to find a way to humble yourself before god this week. I promise that you will be blessed. 

Here's my old investigator that was from texas. haha hes the best.

Lets Contact!

Turns out i'm not in the offices! but i'm in the same ward as the assistants! Here's a pic of my new comp! 

He sings and he just always smiles! it makes working so fun and light!:) The trials of life are overcome through diligent obedience and a good attitude! Then we become stronger and more happy:)

I'm just getting used to this new zone! Everyone here in the city wears like Abercrombie, Hollister and Aeropostale! its like the US 10 years ago haha! If we have the joy of the love of God in our hearts, we will have a great desire to share the Gospel. 

I'm super good! super relaxed and super pumped to invite people to repent and read the book of mormon and be baptized! I got to the city! its a crazy lifestyle here! but im learning a lot! oh and were opening area so its pretty tough cuz were contacting all the time!

The weirdest thing that happened was that when i said bye to my old investigators from the other zone, some cried, some gave me kisses on the cheek, some sang me a song. really sad stuff. 

I had a crazy experience that this one 15 year old went up in testimony meeting to give his testimony with his mom and he just stood by her and had his arm around her and I told him afterwards that hes my hero and he told me that hes like his only support for his mom cuz his dad and brother aren't active. 

So that made me pretty emotional and really motivated. cuz i really think that the whole reason im here is to train to be a missionary for my own family. I really believe that and im willing to do all i can for you guys! love you dad and im always here for you and the fam! 

Love Elder Hilton
