We also had a conference this past weekend with Elder Walter Gonzalez from the 70. It was SO INCREDIBLE! I have my notes at home, because I forgot to bring them in, but it was amazing. He talked SO much about the Book of Mormon, which has been something that my testimony has only gotten stronger of during my mission. He said the Book of Mormon is going to be what´s going to save families in these last days. I know I´ve already said this so many times, but thank you Mom and Dad for reading with us everyday, even if we weren´t paying attention. I´m sorry that I didn´t realize it was such a big deal until now, but PLEASE keep doing it. PLEASE be reading individually, and talking about what you´re reading. There is no doubt in my mind, and I testify that this book contains POWER from on high. I know the Book of Mormon is true with every fiber in my being. I started the Abinadi chapters today and I´m stoked! Keep reading the Book of Mormon. Share it with everyone!! I love you all so much! He also talked about the importance of families. Thank you for raising me the way you did, and for never making me feel little. I have my struggles and my weaknesses, but you always helped me to see that these aren´t the most important things and especially that you don´t judge me by them.
Juan, Catalina, and all of the rest of our investigators are doing great! Keep praying for them please, especially for this new family. The familia Calvo Jorquera (Marcelo´s y Danay!)
I know the church is true. Go to the temple, read your scriptures, do missionary work, and perserverar hasta el fin. I promise, it´s vale la pena.
I slacked this last week with birthdays, so happy birthday last week to Austin and Tanner, and yesterday to Uncle Jack and Dennalei!!! And happy birthday this next week to Dylan and Crystal! Hope your days are the bomb.com!!
Okay and I think that´s all! Sorry it´s so short this week.

We found a trail through the woods by our home
Of course when we see teeter-totters we HAVE to stop and try them out!
