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.

The Alex Family


I hope yall are having a spectacular week, I've really enjoyed mine. I don't have a lot of time, but there are two main events from this last week. 

The first one, we had a "Noche Mexicana" on Friday for the Mexican day of independence. It was a lot of fun, my district and two other elders sang at it and it was a blast. 

The second and more important was that two sisters in my district had a baptism this week!! It was awesome, the Cuevas family took the dive and entered into the covenant of baptism, aided by Elder Fielding and myself. We call them the Alex family as a nickname because the Dad's name is Alejandro and the Mom's name is Alejandra, and they both go by Alex, and they have an older son named Alex that lives in Idaho, another named Danny, a younger son named Alex that was baptized with them, a daughter named Alcestis, a son named Aaron who was also baptized with them, and then Alexandra who is 2, and their 2 week old, Axle. It was a really spiritual baptism, they've been preparing for 2 years with the sisters, and it was amazing to see them finally take the leap. 

That was really it for this week, I love you guys a lot, have a wonderful week!!
