keepin it tight

October 27:
Hola Family and friends accross the world! ( Or maybe just family and friends in the U.S. I have no idea how many people are actually reading this anyway.)
Well, this week was alot better healthwise, meaning that I wasn"t bitten by any dogs and or suffered from diahreea. *I am pretty sure I mispelled diahreea.Whatever, I blame the Espanol keyboard.) And this means that me and Guelet could have an exchange with the girls in San Juan! Although Hma,. Guelet is still new here in L.A., she lead the area with a breeze, (literally an ocean breeze because we are 20 minutes away from the ocean but cannot see the beach.)And I stayed with the sisters in Institute. They are missionaries in charge of all the fam. history work in the south mission right now, and work with institute. Their job is really like working in an office, because although they have lessons with converts about the temple and family history, they also have to travel all over and call like a bajillion people for references. But they can visit the temple 2 times a week with all the recent converts, so they really are blessed. I loved bein with them for a day because I got to see how they work, and got to help new members make plans to attend the temple, but it gave me a craving to see my own investigators, converts, and less actives again. To motivate them to do everything they can to go to the temple. Really, those blessing are there for everyone of them now, and I love living in this day and time for that. That is why it is so importanat for me right now to learn more about my fmaily history, and because all of us need to do the same. Just think about all the time they have been waiting so that we couls become members to do theiur baptisms and confirmations, their endowments, and most of all, sealings. It really is something I love, and want all o my family (everyone reading this right now is my family), to experience. So, get in tough with your ward family history consultors! I am sure they have time to help you, and they know alot more than many missionaries do. And go to the temple! You will be so happy when you hear the words of the phophets in the next general conference, and think, "Dang, I helped to do my part."
2Nefi 12, and Mosiah 2: 5 and 6 talk about this alot. It really is beautiful.
I am so proud of the work that everyone is doing at home and at school, at work, and in the mission field. I know I do not always have time to give thanks to everyone, or talk to everyone personally, but I will always be praying for you and sending messages personally for birthdays, and before leaving for missions. (I am talkin to you, Amy Laura ;)
I love you all so much! Keep on truckin!

P.S. I saw a pic of Brittan and her husband in a Liahona article for August 2013. It was really funny, and I loved it. Good for you Brit and Dillon! Cannot wait to hear about your lil family soon!
