Hey everyone!

My last P day from  the CCM! so crazy! looking back the time has actually flown but i am SO excited to get to Bolivia! i should be flying through the night on Monday and get there sometime on Tuesday!
These past two weeks have been crazy with the latina comp and district!! I forgot to knock on wood when i said i hope my comp speaks slow.. she talks so fast and so quiet the latinos usually dont even understand her! the first few days i was constantly telling her to slow down because i have no idea what she is saying... now i still usually have no idea what she is saying but i continue the conversation anyways and just say whatever comes to mind hahah usually we both end up super confused but it keeps me from getting frustrated! but she is super sweet and has only been a member for less than 2 years and has the strongest testimony which is awesome!
yesterday we got to proselyte again! the people this time were super super harsh and cared more about telling us why we are wrong than listening to our message which was sooo frustrating. plus we got so lost in the city and it started pouring rain! so circumstances werent exactly ideal but such is mission life right?!
my spanish is coming along eh... hahah it feels so slow. i can usually be understood but definitely dont speak correctly because theres so many different conjugations that are freakin hard! but my vocab grows everyday which im grateful for! ive had to learn the hard way not to mix up some of the super close words. for example the word `paso`which means step and the word ``peso`` which is their money.. this week i taught a whole lesson on the money required in this life obtain eternal life hahah my companion was so confused she didnt even know how to correct me #oops. also learned the hear way is the mix up of ``pecado´` which is sin with ``pescado`` which means fish. ``Jesus died for your fish`` or better ``through the atonement our fish can be forgiven`` hahaha ah its a good thing we havent had any real investigators yet! i cant wait until the language just comes naturally!
we got a new ccm pres this week! they are from taylorsville and when they got here i wanted to hug them and never let go because it was like hugging a little piece of home! haha i miss america so much! 
i hope everyone is doing good!! i love and miss you all so much! im so grateful for all the support and prayers :)
I want to share my favortive quote from this week ``the more value it has, the more it costs`` one of my maestros taught me this when i was having a hard day and i think it applies to every aspect of life! when times are hard keep pushing through becuase good things are in store :)
