Well this last week was a little long and we didn't work too much in our sector because my companion had to go to some meetings so I went to a different sector to work and then we had some other stuff.
We have been working hard but it just doesn't seem like it is time for the people. A lot of our investigators have let us in and then they have told us no and they don't want anymore of us. It's been super weird. On Saturday I asked that we could have a miracle on Sunday and we found a new family and they are amazing. The problem is that we can only pass by once a week so it's been a little rough. But we are working hard and I know that God will bless us if we stick to it and do what he wants! 
This change I am working on patience that I can trust God and be patient in my problems and all that comes my way. 
I am so thankful for the time I have to be here and to work with so many people and grow more and more in the Lords work. 
I love you all and am so thankful for all that you do.

Con mucho Amor!!

Elder Oaks Visit

This week was good. We had a wonderful visit from Elder Oaks of the 12. He killed it when he talked to us and man it was great to see an amazing gringo that speaks English... He has such an amazing spirit to him!!! In our conference we got to shake his hand and I was privileged to be the first one!! That was awesome!!

He talked a lot about everything but something that I liked was that he talked about how someone can't progress in doing or learning if they don't take the first steps. This has helped me because he said if someone is not praying right and doesn't know how to pray they will never get an answer. It made me think a lot about how sometimes we don't help people with their prayers and because they don't think it's a big problem to pray how they want, they just pray.

He also shared in Alma 7 where talks about how Christ will suffer for all our pains and problems not just our sins. This hit me because I have been having some problems with health... and man it made me think why am I complaining! Well that was the end of my complaints.
We started a new change today and me and my companion are still together in the same place. We get to go to the temple the 7th of May. That will be the day that I complete one year. I am super stoked about that!!! It's been good to learn from this last change and I know that we will be seeing more blessings in this next change... if that is what God wants. 

I love you all!!

Con mucho amor Elder Smith!!

Este Semana

Well this week was good. After I had my appointment with the doctor on Tuesday we started to work again.. well on Wednesday, haha Tuesday I was drugged. The bad thing was, they didn't give me enough meds in the beginning so I remember and it hurt super bad... welll then they gave me more and I  don't remember the rest of the 2 hrs.

Well we have been working hard and our friend Pedro came to church yesterday and it's amazing to see him change and to grow closer to the people!! We had an interesting experience on Saturday in the morning. We went to a house that we have been trying to pass and get in and talk to the people. Finally, a guy came out that we never knew and he let us in. We got to know him and he is a very cool guy. We started to share with him and he told us that they studied a little with the Jehovas witnesses and man he didn't know to much but then his wife came out and sat down.. when she sat down it was so fast when she started throwing out all these questions and man she had fighten face. But she was not only asking us to fight but to learn, we found out that her questions were just the beginning... her true desire was to know what we thought about families... that was cool. But after talking to them and getting to know them they asked that we have lunch with them one day and that we come back!! Man I am so excited to see what happens with this familia. 
I know that god leads and guides us if we let him. We have to continue to be humble enough to have this so that we can find this path that is in his plan for us. 

I love you all!! Take care!!

Easter...Conferene Weekend!

Well last week was good... it felt a little weird and all... but it was good. I had to go to the doctors only to find out that he can't help me and that I have to get help from the clinic... I'm sick of going to the clinca!!!
We have been working hard and finding new people. We have been working good with Pedro if you remember him and well he is just great... he has some doubts but we are ready to help him with those. He is excellent to teach and has outstanding faith.
It was a blessing to listen to general conference and get the extra strength.  I don't remember who was talking but they gave an example about how he took his boys hiking 50 miles in 19 hours.  His sons then told him that that was the hardest thing they have ever done and they would not do it again.  I thought about that and I think I would have to say that this time in my life is one of the hardest things that I've done and am doing.   I have grown so much and I don't feel ready to come home for a good 15 years!   
Conference was amazing and obviously I love the talk giving by Elder Holland... read it and you'll know why. Well it made me think about a lot. They story he shared was so touching and I learned so much from it. The part about the 19 year old boy jumping to saftey and then almost slipping to his death but his younger brother saved him! I have thought a lot about that and how Elder Holland applied that to Christ. Christ really has saved us, IF WE CHOOSE TO EXCEPT HIM. 
The other experience I had was I put myself in that boys place. Making that jump. I thought a lot about the things I am doing now in my life and making the jump to serve a mission or making a jump to do the things of God. Man it has not been easy, but I have received help throughtout the whole way. I thought about making these jumps and when I slip and things are hard, I know that my little angel brother is right there in the bushes waiting to leap to help me. IT was a very interesting experience this was but it made me  feel a lot closer to him. I know that because of Gods plan we can see our loved ones again and I know that they are not gone. They are not only helping others in the spirit world but they are helping us. 
I know that God lives, loves us and will do anyting to help us if we put in our effort. I know that Jesus Christ died for us and atoned for all our problems faults and sins. Because of him all things are possible! I love my Savior with all my heart and this past Easter I haved learned more then I thought possible. 

I pray that we all can keep pushing doing the things that God wants and putting in our effert. I love you all and know that we all have the potintial to live with God again and to be like him.

Con mucho amor,
Elder Smith
