It's not so much "whatever that means." It's whoever...

Fwd: Week of awesomeness.

So. This week was basically the greatest week of planning EVER. We made about a bajillion plans to get everyone excited about missionary work and such. We put up a poster in the Church that...well...I'll attach a photo. You'll just have to see for yourselves. Oh...the translation is this: "LET US GIVE YOU A HAND. As full-time missionaries, we are ready, willing and willing (prestos is like willing and ready and available...all in one) to teach the gospel. Please, introduce us to your friends. (See D&C 18:16). 

Everyone was laughing about it. We put it right above our "Caja de referencias" which is an awesome little box we made for people to put referrals' names and information in. Also we made posters for ward FHE's we're going to do, and also for a missionary training we're going to be doing as well. 

So basically we're going to baptize the entire area. ;) This Sunday, we received 4 referrals, and were able to teach every single one of them the same day. We're already starting to see the blessings of good planning and hard work. 

That's basically all you need as a missionary. But one really important thing is the follow up. If you make plans, and then never go through with them, or if you receive a referral from a member and then never contact or teach them, then what's the point? 

There isn't one. misión, la misión. I love the mish. Lots of hard work, but it's so rewarding. Love it. 

I hope everything is going well back at the ranch. I mean. At home. I just remembered about that book called "Meanwhile, back at the ranch..." Classic. 

Love y'all. Take luck.

P.S. The other foto is of the awesome new tie you got me for christmas, and of Elder Bogdan, my awesome gringo friend that's going home on Friday. He's from Houston.
