"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nephi 31:20

Convenient Story: The Sun

So, it is convenient that I shared that story about the North Wind and the Sun the last week, because this week we spent a LOT of time outside in the sun.

Taking advantage of the huge holiday here of The Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) Which is actually two days (November 1st and 2nd) every missionary in the whole mission was camped out in where? The public cemetaries. It was a pretty good chance to teach the Plan of Salvation and help people understand where their loved ones had gone and what happens. It was a packed day. Looked more like fairgrounds than a graveyard. But we had a great time talking to the many people that were there. 

This morning we had a baseball game against the other Zone here in Mina. President Morales even drove the 4 hours out here to spend some time with all the missionaries. We won 11-8. Even though I got out in the first inning on a double-play--all my fault. Whoops. Then the other team got 5 runs right after that in the first inning still. But we held it all together and used it as a great learning experience for all the missionaries. We all had a great time.

Through the whole week I kept on thinking about your state of mind. My mom would always say something like: "Your attitude makes the difference" or something like that. And in sports I was always told to imagine myself doing a move or scoring or whatever may be the case, and after visualizing yourself doing it, you really can do it. I figure that is part of your faith. It really is everything about your state of mind. Keep your hopes high and make your dreams come true. For the mean time, check out the dream team in these photos.

Love ya'll,
Elder Andrews
