9/9/13 (6 month mark!)

Dear Family,
So this week I will hit my 6 month mark crazy!  I can't believe I've already been out here a third of my mission.  Its going by so fast!  So I don't think I told you guys yet but I'm serving as the sister trainer right now.  So this week I went on splits in Bayamon.  That was fun.  I really like working with all of the sisters.  Our mission has about a little less than 40 sisters in it I think.  Anyways this week we've just been working with our investigators lots.  They've been progressing, but its hard sometimes.  Lots of people know the Bible really well and interpret it in so many ways.  I just have to remember the promise that as long as I have the spirit with me, I will not be confounded by men.  You really have to have a lot of faith in lessons like that so that's what my companion and I are working on.  We met with the bishop and the ward council this week and  talked about the ward mission plan.  Its really awesome to see how all the callings in the ward are revolved around mission work and how if we all do our part we can help the work grow.  So we are really focusing this week in helping the Bishop put the ward mission plan into action.  Does our ward have a mission plan?
Anyways thanks for all the pictures of the 4 wheeling.  Looks like it was super fun.  Everyone is just so busy with everything.  crazy about the storm in costco.  thats weird for utah.  normal for puerto rico haha.  anyways, this week ive been thinking about the law of consecration and what that means to us as latter day saints.  Elder Anderson spoke a lot about it and how we really promise to give everything to the church when asked.  Even a calling or a simple assignment in the church is part of the law of consecreation.   The ym/ yw activity sounded like lots of fun!  Im glad that you were able to use all of our fun stuff.  And tell Mallory congratulations on her call.  Thats so exciting!  
Well I have to go but I love you all :)
