It is pretty hard to keep up with everything but something that always helps me in the mission is the Savior's example. When he had just finished a super hard task of the atonement he did not go take a rest or say that his work was done. He went and just kept working. So whenever I feel just wasted or hurt or whatever I just think that he did not give up so I will not either. It helps alot.
I have been enjoying church so much more in the mission because I have spiritual problems that I am looking for answers. The revelation a lot of the times comes from sacrament meeting for me. So just search for those questiones and answers and you can have a much better experience in church to be honest.
We had a good week, with the transfers I always think that I am running around with me head cut off trying to be every where at once. I really enjoy it and I think it is quite fun. We worked really hard and saw a few really cool miracles during the week and just kept working. We have a lady that has been to church so much, but has never been baptized. I thought she was just never going to be baptised but we had a super tear filled spirit of a lesson with her on Saturday. She finally accepted that she needed to do it. So yay for M!
We also found a few people that seemed really cool, they just did not make it out to church. So, back to work with them this week to see if they progress and make sure that they understand the importance of keeping this crucial commandment. 
We played ultimate frisbee as a zone today and ate some really good tacos! It was fun! And now trying to finish writing as quickly as possible so we can get back to our area. jajaja There are too many appointments!
Love you guys so much and really miss you a ton!

Man the rodeo is small but it is so fun, I really miss that to be honest. Those awesome little weekend trips to places and doing some really fun things. 
Well my week was good. To be honest, I am really stressed because the zone is having a lot of problems work wise. The missionaries are really awesome and we are trying our best to help them but things are just not really falling into place. 
This week was better though because we focused on a meta of news in the zone. It seemed to help the missionaries focus more on their jobs not just walking. So, lots of the areas that were struggling found more people and many of them went to church. Just about 3 of the areas had problems. We have plenty of people in our area but sometimes repentance takes longer than we hope for. 
We have a super awesome family that I love so much. They have plenty of problems but are progressing. Sometimes they just don't make it to chruch or a few things. But we are progressing with them a ton. It will be my first baptism of a full family! Missing the Dad but they are G, the mom, C, the son, and L, the other son. They also have a little 4 year old daughter named M! Love them a ton.
Other than that everything is awesome! Time just keeps flying, to be honest 9 months is not even a blink of an eye at this point. That is just 6 transfers, honestly I am worried that it isn't enough. Sometime time drags on but to be honest most days fly by and we work really hard. Like I said before, right now in my mission is the most effective that I have been in a long time. 
I really do miss you guys though, it is starting to get to me that I am not home and that I am missing things. Not a lot so don't worry, but I started thinking that I do not even really remember the last 4th of July when I was at home jaja. Like I remember the one in the mission and then yeah. 
Love you guys so much and I really hope that everything is going well with all my brothers and such because they don't write me. jaja
Well everything else is good! I loved the bee tie but I already stained it.... :( 
Guess i have been really bad at taking pics because I have none from this week....
