21 July- Dear family :D

Thank you for the emails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is soooooooo good to hear from you guys and to know that you´re not mad at me for not having written… Seriously. I always want to write to you guys but an hour a week is not enough to accomplish my goal. I want to tell you about my experiences but after I reply to emails (and I don´t even reply to all of them!) my time is up. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Whenever you want to write to me and tell me how you are and how your kids are, or send me a photo, I´ll love it J
For everyone who knows Gizmo, I thought of you this week:

The Mexican Gizmo

Haha, and this Gizmo has puppies!

Haha super cute.
This week was literally full of miracles. I can see our bodies and our minds being led by the Spirit just like I always hoped, and it is crazy. At first, the sacrifices of the mission—¨It is  expected that you devote this year and a half to the Lord, leaving behind all personal matters¨ —were harder. Now, starting to see and feel the fruits of my efforts, has taught me an eternal principle: that we live in an eternity, an eternity that we can´t always understand with our mortal minds. Say I´m gonna cook Nona´s famous molasses cookies. Am I gonna spend all night and all my money baking a million different batches, trying to remember the exact quantities in the recipe? Or am I gonna call Nona? So we can struggle and struggle and get hurt and hurt others, trying to find the way to happiness, or we can just trust the person who understands: God.
