Be a Man Dude

I felt a little frustrated this week, noticing that a LOT of people don't look beyond the name tag and the dress clothes when we contact them. They tell us they're Catholic or that they're busy before we even get a word. I wanted people to be able to see that the gospel is all they need. But i soon realized that only the Lord can help people see that so all I can do is try and be like Christ, serve people, love people, and live the example. 

My comp is super cool. He was with another Gringo before me that was really strict so hes trying to be more relaxed. I know from my experience in the mission that little mistakes that everyone makes aren't meant to fill us with guilt and remorse. If we let that happen, that's like satan gaining power over our hearts. But if we turn to God in prayer and study and pondering, hell turn our weakness into a strength and we wont have this endless guilt trip from something we cant really control in the long run.

I know that this work is the most important thing we can participate in. Its like thinking about the eternal perspective, we realize that the worldly things don't really matter and that sharing the gospel even if were scared now has so much value in the eternity. 

I love this time to just escape in the service of the Lord to learn and grow. The only thing I would change is my bed. Its so hard and I never get good sleep!!!! haha 

Love you guys I really am excited to tell you all my adventures and share my strengthened testimony with all of you
