"Alguien Ya Pago"

Hola Familia!!
I'm so happy to be writing you! It's super cool that everyone is getting together this week for Joe's and Natalie's wedding! I'm super excited to see some pictures and to hear about all the stuff that's happening, and all I can say is Welcome to the Family Natalie!! Haha Get excited.
   This week has been really good, and really hard. It's been hard because everyone was gone or drunk so we didn't have a lot of people to teach or to talk to, but its good because we did all we could and talked to everyone that we came in contact with.. Which is always the goal! Vicente is making some progress and he has a baptismal date for this Sunday, but since he doesn't have a cell phone, its hard to find him sometimes. So we haven't seen him in a couple of days. Kevin and Jaime just got back from a two week vacation in Riverside with their Aunt, so they I think we're going to set another baptismal date for later this month for them. So many things keep coming up preventing people to get baptized. It's irritating to say the least.
    This week, I've been trying to focus on the Christ-like attribute of Hope. I think it's something we to often look over, but it is definitely something that we can use, and should use, to become more like our Savior. I've spent some time reading President Packer's talk about "The reason for our hope". It's awesome. My favorite thought that President Packer shares is that whenever we feel like we were wronged, or something happened to us that we wish other people could feel, we need to remember that "Someone already has" or in Spanish, "Alguien ya Pago", Which directly translates to "Someone has paid". I love that. We need to remember that Jesus Christ knows EXACTLY what you feel and the way you feel it. And that is the reason for our hope. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is so infinite and eternal that we cannot even begin to understand what Christ felt, but we can know with a surety, that He understands what we have felt, and will feel. We have a Savior that loves us and has made it possible for us to overcome sin and death and become like him. He is the reason for our hope. I have a solid testimony of these things. And I hope that we can all begin to have a little more hope in our words, actions, and thoughts.

Con Muchisimo amor,

Elder Dallin Fuell

P.s. Congratulations Joe and Natalie! Wooohooo.

Snow in California!

After a long day, we work on our skills
