"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."  Mosiah 18:23 “…and also every day they should give thanks to the Lord their God.”   
I am grateful for each one of you.    Abrazos……..Hermana Call

Honestly, this mission is the best thing to do for a young man before he does anything in life. My poor wife, whomever she may be, will be infinitely more appreciative that she didn´t have to deal with me as a normal man without the mission. My boss, wherever I may go, will be happy because I´m not like the rest of the men in the world. There are just certain principles that a missionary learns and SHOULD continue to practice and strive to do after the mission that can literally change the world. We are the light of the world and we can´t just hide anything. Let your light so shine, wherever you may be. I´m so grateful for the mission experience and it´s the best thanksgiving gift I can give is go and find more people. Same with Christmas.... it´s like Christ-más (Christ-more ) every day as a missionary. No better place to be. 

Anyway, I think the fact that it´s almost over is getting me but this week was super awesome. The Lord sent 12 investigators with a baptismal date to church yesterday and that is almost unheard of right now in the mission. IT IS NOT US! We are simply instruments in His hands. Please pray for them. These people are the following: 

-Carmen (Edgar´s wife- well, soon to be wife)
-José Luis (José Luis, Yolanda his wife, and Ana Laura the daughter)
-Ana Laura
-Alfredo (wife of a member less active)
-Cristian (with five little kids and he´s only 28! Born to be a Mormon!)
-Cintia (Cristian´s wife)
-Alicia (Brianda, Cristian, and Edgar´s mom)

Ricardo is separate, Camelia is separate, and Alfredo is separate, but the rest are from two families. The Church looks for families because we experience REAL GROWTH in Zion and we progress that much more. Oh, and guess what! Ricardo´s last name is ESCOGIDO! (chosen) We found that pretty funny. Well, I don´t have much time today to write because we still have to wash the laundry, but just know that the work will always go on until it has sounded in every ear. If we want the Millennium to come faster, preach the Gospel more! Fulfill the prophecies faster and then we might just experience something even greater in our lives. 

Don´t forget to share your testimony this week in Sacrament meeting! I invite you, but more importantly, God invites you because the testimony is strengthened by sharing it. 

Love you all!

ps- I haven´t taken pictures... sorry. I´ll try and do that more but we are just so busy lately. I´ll take pics of our investigators this week so that you know them by face.
