"Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work ... and faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work." - D&C 4:3-5

well it sounds like all is going well back at home. all is going well here too. we are working a lot and the hard work is really starting to pay off. well I don´t have too much to say this week except that I read something interesting in 4th nefi this morning. it was that the hate that laman y lemuel had for nefi was so strong that it was the thing, along with the pride of the people, that led to the destruction of a people that at one time was completely converted to God. at it´s high point of this civilizations conversion to the gospel, it says that they were so faithful and blessed because they loved God so much. so i guess what this tells me is that if we want to prosper in the land and to be truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ, we need to love God with all of our heart might and soul. to avoid being destroyed and to avoid falling into unbelief, we need to love our family and not be prideful. well, i don´t have much to say today, but thanks for all that you guys do for me. i love you very much.

mother my comps first name is elder.

well I took some other vidos of me eating a whole habenero in one bite and of me crying because of it but there are limits on the size of stuff we can send. but I hope this one works. we went to get a hair cut and so we were walking and we saw a bunch of iguanas. usually they all run a way but there were two big ones and one of them ran a way but the other one just went in the rocks so I grabbed its tail and it was so strong! I pulled with all my strength and I just ended up ripping its tail off haha well I hope it sends through adios I guess the file is too big but there is the story for you.

(Janel’s note:  Just in case you were wondering ….  Iguanas do lose their tails as a survival method so the iguana should have been ok).

Dear David,
You can see in your photos the lives you are touching and also how the sweet people/children of Mexico are touching your life, it's all for the good of spreading the gospel.
PS- Be careful of all those spiders and other critters!
Love Always,
Mother xo xo
