yay! what a week as far as numbers go it was the best week of my mission so far but we all know numbers dont count. what does count is that we met so many new people and were able to speak to them about the gospel many times.shnell is still coming along. he came to church and was wearing a white shirt and tie. he just needs a litttle more time and then will shortly be ready to make these covenants everlasting with god. :)

so funny story!
i was studying in the" true to the faith" that i got from the parents and decided to study the part about adversity. many people here go through tons of adversity it is hard to imagine how they must feel. but we always explain that god gives us these challenges to test us and make us stronger. that he has a unique plan for everyone but through everything he is right by our side but we just have to reach back for him. he loves us and everything we go through is for our benefit in the looooong run. read in dyc 122. a short section but very comforting. i love you all and god loves all of us. we can feel this love that he has for us and for others if we just humble ourselves, repent and ask in prayer.
well thats it. excited to start this new adventure! love ya all!!!!!!!

*publisher's note: I copy and paste Jessica's emails just as she has written them, as poor as the spelling and grammar may be, because it's more authentic that way. You get to observe just how immersed a missionary becomes in the language and culture, as well as how little "free" time they have. They often don't' have the time to worry about spelling and grammar... they figure their family and friends will get the gist. ... and we do. ;) For this particular typo, however, I feel compelled to clarify: We do not believe that one can baptize one's self. This is just a perfect example of the Spanish grammar bleeding into English. I'm pretty sure Jessica just meant to say, "in order to be baptized."
