Me and elder Reyes were on our way to an appointment and it was kinda drizzlin when all the sudden bam! Lightning no joke about 120 yards ahead of us.. I felt the electricity, and the buzz hahah it was sketch! Missionaries are protected!

I also gave a ten minute talk in spanish in the ward.. hahaah, yup.(:

I wrote down some quotes that reminded me of all of you. "One of the great purposes of true love is to help each other, we can endure anything if we have someone at our side who truly loves us, who is easing the burden and lightening the load." And one more, "True love blooms when we care more about another person than we care about ourselves." I want you all to know I couldn't do this without any of you.. SO keep bein my awesome fam. I love you all with all my heart.. I'm already lookin forward to talkin to you next week.. Thanks again for all your love and prayers and thoughts. Your always in my heart and mind everywhere I go to!!(: Scrip of the missoin till I get home for all of you! (:
