The Church is Undeniably True

Hola Familia!
It was great to hear from you all this week! I must admit though you are all trunky! I would be too, but to be honest, I don’t have time for stuff like that The mission just changed from being in a transfer mentality (6 weeks) to a monthly mentality, which means instead of 3 transfers, I have FIVE whole months! Woo Hoo (the bigger number helps me think that its farther off) But anyway, writing about this stuff is starting to make me trunky. (but while we are on the trunky subject, yes, I would love to live with Sean again! I’m cool with whatever, but would probably prefer an apartment...they are easier to clean... I had always thought I would drop my argentine accent when I got back, but if I’m living with a bunch of peruanitos,(missionaries who served in Peru) I might keep it just for pride...) It’s good to know that everything is safe and secure at home. I hope everyone is feeling good and moving forward.
We had another great week here. I just love the rain, which is a good thing because we’ve been getting a lot of it. My shoes have slowly been losing their tread, which means I can practically xc ski in the mud. I really am having the time of my life right now. There is so much cool stuff going on. Even with huge opposition, we are getting close to our goals. We have adapted the technique of setting really high goals and working for them, but the thing with that is that you don’t always make it. Sometimes I feel like explaining our goals as ridiculous, but that’s just because I don’t have enough faith! The idea is shoot for the moon and land in the stars...if you get the idea. Another lesson learned in my youth. In pole-vault, we would set a cross bar at a height we wanted to jump, then put a practice bungee up way higher and shoot for that. Long story short, if you are looking up, you go higher, so you have to not look at the real goal and have your sights set on the higher one. And who knows, you just might end up getting the higher one...
Well, this one is going to be short... even though dad threatened me, it took me too much time to fill another assignment he gave me, so I’m gonna have to end it here. I love you all sooooooo much and look forward to hearing from you next week.
The church is undeniably true and Jesus Christ is our Savior, Lord and Redeemer. The Book of Mormon is true and I know that Thomas Monson is a prophet.
