If anyone is feeling sad, stop. Forget about yourself. The only times we really are sad are when we're thinking about ourselves.
When we focus on others, that's when happiness comes. Everything is a choice. Literally. Everything.

Nos ha llamado Dios a servir

Buenas tardes la gente buena de Zion.
Esta semana pasada fue bien divertido y espiritual. On Tuesday and Wednesday I was on exchanges with Elder Sanchez, and we sang and played uke in front of an entire trailer park. Oh, and Monday I bought a ukulele haha. It's a lot of fun. 
We had a really awesome zone meeting on Thursday. We talked about what I took to be the 3 main focuses for missionaries in missionary work, which are Obedience, Diligence, and Teaching Skills. It really was awesome, we learned a lot and we have so much more planned for this next month and transfer. It's going to be great. 
As I'm thinking of that, it relates to life almost exactly. When we are obedient and diligent in keeping the commandments, we can receive any blessing we need or want. We just need to be willing to work for it, be worthy for it, and then study and apply the ways we can achieve it. It's a basic system the Lord provides all his children so that they can be blessed and continue to progress always. Isn't the Lord's plan just perfect? 
After that, we had a lot of fun. Elder Harker and I had dinner this week with a less active member who had canceled on us the week before and told us that to make it up to us he would cook us a steak 3 inches thick. We didn't take him seriously, but he really did cook a steak that was 3 inches thick hahahaha it was awesome. 

I hope that you all have a wonderful semana, this week is transfers, but since Elder Harker and I both just got here we're not expecting to leave haha. I love you all!
Elder Packer
