we also with all the gran blessings of the Lord have had some really hard times and scary times with drunks and druggies like just now i am so glad the elders showed up at the internet cafe with us cause this druggie was scaring me so bad and would not leave me be! but yeah we have rough experiences but we have had more blessings than i can ever count.
I want all of you to know that the Lord really loves us. He IS our Father in Heaven that loves and protects us and if we follow him he guides us back to his side with our eternal families! i am so grateful for my family and the love and support that they have always been for me and i am so grateful for them and their example to be an eternal family and one day i hope to have that same blessing! i know the Lord hears us in our prayers though things may be so hard the lord is always they guiding and protecting us from all the worldly things in a path that will lead and give us TRUE happiness eternal joy. i love the gospel and i love the opportunity i have to be an instrument in the Lords hands right now and following the spirit i have seen my help in his work here in etla and these are experiences i have loved and will ALWAYS cherish! thank you all for supporting me on the most amazing experience of my life and helping me help the lamanites of the book of Mormon really find the truth of their fathers!!! :) hehe i just love it!
