This week has been happy...Ive noticed I have changed.. ALOT!!! We are trying to find more families.... the work of the lord functions a lot better when we can invite people as a family. That is the perfect idea that sometimes is so hard..... These past couple weeks have been miraculous with the baptism of the Echavarria family.... and this sunday something happened so beautiful.....Hermano Othun (the dad) and his son Sabastian were going to recieve the priesthood....but things happened and it was a fight and contention out of no where started to rise and mis comunications and everything.....my companion and I had a feeling so strong to leave our class and go talk to them and help everything..... after a great talk with the bishop and everyone coming to understanding on the issues that were passing us.....we found a happiness in our hearts so strong.....and Hermano Othon was able to recieve the priesthood and will ordain his son next week......the temptations and the random trials that are popping up with them and us ever since the week before their baptism are so obviously from the god of all evil.....But we have had such comfort together with this family to work together with that eternal goal.....This family has changed me so much.....they are leaders and followers of christ.... Yes we will have trials and sadness in our lives but if we stick to the gospel we can also have joy and happiness in the midst of all of our challenges of life..... when we understand what it really means to have happiness and joy, that it is not something that we have for just a moment.....it is not a fun rebelious night out with the friends....it is not a great popular movie or a new car or all of these things that might bring us temporal enjoyment.....it is a hope for something greater a knowledge that our Heavenly Father is aware of us and we are here for a purpose and we will one day rest with Him and his son Jesus Christ and our Families for all time and Eternity..... I am so happy....we need to be Happy....we need to smile and lift each other up..... Be a contagious SMILE not a contagious frown.... Im so blessed to be here in mexico....there have been miracles everyday....and I know it will continue.... Thanks for your love and prayers I feel them in my heart everyday motivating me to keep going forward creating my destiny....con mucho mucho amor Hermana Waddell
