Help Others Feel the Sprit

Dear Family,

Well sometimes I can't believe how fast the time is going. I can't believe that school is ending and that Baker will be in high school. That just seems a little to weird for me. And Ward that is just crazy. Really sounds like everyone is doing good.

Anyways we are doing really well in Alamedas, Villa Nueva, Guatemala. This last week we were blessed as usual. Things are getting a little interesting here because my companion and I have knocked every single door more than 3 times. But the lord keeps on giving us miracles. this last Monday when we left it started raining so hard and every single one of our appointments feel. Anyways nobody was answering their door and the streets where turning into rivers. Anyways as were really looked for the guidance of the spirit we were lead to the door of someone we had contacted like over a month ago. Anyways we found them (a family of a 17 year old girl and a 22 year old guy, they have been living together for 4 years) and we had a really powerful lesson. They just told us how they don't have happiness at all. Anyways they went to church on Sunday. and they loved it so we are going to see what we can do for them.

Really being a missionary is sweet because pretty much you just look for new ways to help others feel the spirit. Everything that we do in our lives is about the spirit. One thing i have learned that it is really hard to live with the guidance of the spirit. Things like judging and getting mad at your companion just drive the spirit away. There is nothing more powerful than unity in the work and in our lives. If we are united as a family, things are a lot easier.

On a sad note a drunk guy just died in the street so that was a little scary. Always be thankful for your blessings. Love you all.
