D+C 123:12-13

"For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties and denominations...who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things [out] of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--these should then be attended to with great earnestness."

Holy cow this week went by so fast! There were two big things that happened, We got a whole new group of missionaries. Half are Latinos, and the other half North Americans. It is so weird to be the old missionaries here, I feel like we just got to the CCM!   But the Latinos are SO AWESOME! I room with two, one is from Panama and the other is from URUGUAY MONTEVIDEO!!!!! Holy Cow, It´s awesome! I´ve had so many questions for him, and it´s been awesome being able to talk to him. I feel like my spanish is  progressing, because I can comunicate with the Latinos pretty well. Hahaha it´s all in broken spanish, but you have to start somewhere!  
The other really big thing was Proselitismo!!!! We got to spend 5 hours in the middle of Bueños Aires, prosyliting!   Hahaha they just dropped us of and said "meet back here at 4:45!"   It was so crazy! Our area was about 7 blocks, and there was a Catholic church Right in the middle of it. EVERYONE we talked to was Catholic and didn´t want to know what we had to say.  But we got to practice a ton of spanish, and they were willing to talk to us, seeing that we were eager to learn their language.   It was really so cool, I felt like a REAL missionary! In the CCM, you feel more like a student, but when we get to prosylite, you are literally Seeking out the righteous, where ere they may be! It´s Awesome! There were a few people that weren´t as strong catholics, and kind of  wanted to hear our message, but it was siesta time when we were out, so everything was closed, and everyone was resting.   Dang Siestas!    But I´m excited to go again this Saturday!    Hopefully we can find at least one person who will accept our Libro de Mormon!  Hahaha but even if they don´t, it is a wonderful thing to be apart of this work. Salvation is not an easy task, so missionary work is never any easier!  It´s such a wonderful thing!  Man, We only have 2 more weeks in the CCM! Where did the time go! It is so crazy to think about how soon I will be in Uruguay! My Uruguayan roomate is just so humble, and I´m starting to feel the love that Heavenly Father has for each one of us. The Latinos are all so humble, they´ve all come from such humble circumstances, and they just love being here. They are so forgiving of my horrible spanish, and they kindly correct me when I mess up. It is such a great thing.

And I just want to give a shout out to my Miller Ward PRIESTS!!!! What´s up guys! I hope you are all making preparations to serve missions! You really don´t know what you are missing out on until you serve a mission. There is no greater call. Being here, surrounded by all of these worthy young men, who know this church is true, is a testimony to me that this church is true. We wouldn´t be out here if we didn´t know it wasn´t true. Believe me, the mission is hard! I have had days that I really don´t want to keep going, but my testimony keeps me going. I know that we were among the army in the pre mortal existence that cast Satan out. We were all there, and we are here now as missionaries to do it again.  Don´t let anything keep you from serving a full time mission! I love you guys, I know you´re doing awesome things! God Speed!
