Sunday wasn't as good as saturday thats for sure. We were in the Assembly Hall talking with people, we have a desk in the back where we all put our stuff down, and no one touches it. But a homeless guy came in, got lucky and took my ipad. Its long gone. I was devastated.... even though we are sure he took it, we looked everywhere and did everything to find it. After a horrible afternoon I got over it and realized its just a "thing" and Im not gonna die. haha. sooooo now I have a loaner Ipad to borrow till i go home and it never leaves my hand. This was a lesson in forgiveness. I hated all the hobos for a few hours and wanted to interrogate all of them outside the gates of the square, don't worry I didn't. haaha I just had to let it go, so that i could continue to work hard and serve the Lord with a clear mind and full heart. Who knows maybe the hobo will read the gospel Library and join the church.

The work is progressing!!! Especially when you have a Spanish companion! Even though I may not speak the same
language, my companion is awesome at giving me oppurtunities to share my testimony and teach, then she translates haha. But I love these people and pray for them! Salud and Oscar are on date for baptism Nov. 7th. A mother and 2 daughters were baptized last week and now we are teaching the father! Spanish people are so chosen. haha!

Spiritual food for thought. "It is our duty to be better today than we were yesterday, and better tomorrow than we are today." - Teachings of Lorenzo Snow. God does not expect perfection, even though a lot of us would like to be perfect. We are too hard on our selves. It has been a goal on my mission to become better each and everyday, through little steps I have changed. No I am not perfect, so don't expect that when I get home, but I am so grateful that everyday I have the ability to repent and to "Try a little harder to be a little better." - Gordon B. Hinckley. Life is real good.
