6 Months!

Hello hello! 

Another week here in Los Cristianos has come and gone. This week was a great week and Hermana Jimenez and I have been laughing all week long, none stop. Whether it be because a weird interaction with someone, cockroaches in the piso, lessons, food, or anything else in between its been all laughs. This week was a great week, and I learned a lot. I don't have much time to write today, but this past weekend we had ward conference. Saturday night we had a fireside and the topic was family counsel. (Aka TEAM MEETING) so many memories came flooding back to me about team meetings every Sunday night at home. Keep up the great work mom and dad! Sunday the bishop and stake president talked and of course it was amazing. The stake president talked about alma 5 and having a change of heart. SO cool because I've been studying that this past week as well. (Also in the conference the ward choir did a musical number and I got to play the violin!) (I'm also teaching on our our investigators how to play the violin.... Man. Patience is definitely a virtue. Thank you mom for being so patient with me!!) 

This week I was studying a few different talks that I wanted to share because they have really helped me this week. 

Mountains to climb. April 2012, Eyring Through gods eyes. October 2015, Renlund. Also. Alma 5 

Because I don't have a lot of time to write I wanted to invite you to read these. I could tell you about them, but go read them :) 

Sorry this is so short, but my brain is scattered, and we're short on time. 

I feel so blessed to be here in Spain, in this island, and here as a representative of my Savior. About a year ago this time, I really decided that I was going to serve a mission. I remember sitting on a beach outside my apartment at Utah State so bothered and clouded because I didn't know what to do. As I was sitting there, 2 missionaries came up to me and started talking to me... They told me I needed to go to the temple and pray about it. Of course I did. A few days later I talked to my bishop at school, called mom and dad after and told them what was happening. That night my papers were basically finished, about 3 weeks later they were submitted. After 12 hours of submission, the call was assigned, and 6 days later it was in my mailbox. Fast forward now. I've been a missionary for almost 6 months! Talk about mountains to climb?! I've come a long ways, but I've still got a long ways to go and I'm grateful for all the support, love, and patience that I have, especially from my father in heaven. A mission is a very humbling experience and through the mountains we climb, I'm so grateful for a father in heaven who knows what we need and when we need it. 

I know that we have a father in heaven who loves us and knows us personally. I know that we have a savior who died for us and suffered so we could repent, be clean, and live with our father in heaven again. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and it was translated by Joseph smith through the power of God. 

We are so blessed to have this knowledge of our savior and his gospel here on the earth today! 

Love you and hope all is well! This week is a big big week. I have 6 months in the mission this week?!?!? We have zone conference with president in la Laguna on Friday. Sunday we have stake conference, so the whole ward is taking a guagua (bus) to la Laguna. A lot of traveling, a little bit of celebrating, a lot of learning, and a lot of improving to do! Wahoo! 

Life is great, the church is true, I'm a child of God, and so are you! 

Much love always from Los Cristianos, Hermanita Curtis 

Sorry this is so all over the place. I love you paps! Thanks for everything. Is there anything I can do for you?
