Hey y'all! Sorry I didn't really have time to write last week, but I hope you enjoyed the pictures! If you
couldn't tell, I'm training again! I'm very happy to be training, because the new missionaries always come
with so much energy and excitement to the mission! And passing over the material that I teach them, always
helps me to remember the basics that I sometimes forget.
My seconds "daughter" is Hna. Soto. She is from WoodsCross Utah and also learning Spanish. It was SUCH

This last week, we met a new family that we'd contacted in the street. As we passed by for the
appointment, the mom sat down at the table, ready to learn, and her two younger boys (9 yrs. and 6 yrs)
were on the nearby couch, playing on the ipad. We invited them over, and the 6 year-old said no, but
the 9 year old said yes and passed the ipad over to his brother and came to sit with us. During the lesson,
we asked the mom why she was willing to listen to this message, and we asked the boy why he was willing
to drop the ipad for this lesson. He simple told us, "Well, it's because this is more important, right?".
I LOVE little children! They are SUCH great examples to us! So this week, I invite you all to find a way to
follow the example of this little boy in your life. Drop something less important, for something more
important. I promise that as you do, you will be happy that you did. The more important and MOST
important things in this life are the only ones that bring true satisfaction. Things like our family, and
our relationship with and obedience to our Heavenly Father. I testify of this principle in the name of
