Dear world, thank you for all of your support! If I can give anyone advice it would be to live the principles of the gospel to a T! It's hard sometimes but blessings come from exact obedience. Pay tithing! Keep the Sabbath day holy! (that includes wearing Sclothes alllllllllll day!) Be generous in your fast offerings and serve in anyway possible!
So our investigator had her baby and she is fine!!
Q. What was the hardest thing you have done on your mission thus far?
A. The hardest thing thus far was finding someone, teaching them everything, preparing them to be baptized, leaving the area but confident that all would work out and then later hearing that she had doubts and the day of her baptismal interview she decided she wanted nothing to do with the church. that was the hardest.
Q. Hna. C. is so cute, what is her personality like?
A. she is a lot like me, if you annoy her, you´ll know, if you love her, she will love you right back. We have never had any problems, one time I asked her how it was possible that we never argue and she told me because in the pre-earth life we promised each other we wouldn't fight.
Q. So do you remember months and months ago that you told me this....Apparently two years ago, Elder Russell M. Nelson came and spoke to everyone and he said that the missionaries that are called to Panama are the most valiant of spirits and that they were the ones at the front of the battle field defending Christ’s side during the war in Heaven… kind of awesome!!! An apostle said that… let’s just let that sink in!…
So I shared that with some of the other Panama moms and someone asked me this..."I would love to know the reference to that! Was it a talk he gave to people there? Was it recorded?" I said I would ask you.
A. That was in a zone conference, only the missionaries heard it and sadly no it's not recorded.
LEARNED SOMETHING NEW AND COOL!! So I learned that there is a reason why the people with disabilities like down syndrome or prader willi, etc. why they will go straight to the celestial kingdom. They were the people to defend Christ first! and satan was sooooo mad that they did that, so he somehow cursed their bodies (but obviously not their spirits) because he wanted them to suffer, he knows he can't do anything to their spirits but to their bodies yes.
I really love you and I want to spend a lot of time with you because I love you very much so smile for me Alyssa. Alyssa I am going to stay 5 for 4 more days and then I am going to turn 6.

Okay so one day there is this doughnut and he is on a cruise and he really really really wants to drive the boat! So he goes to the captains deck *knock knock knock* "captain!!
