Hey fam!

I can't believe another week has come and gone! I hope December is treating you well! Here in Sucre it is super hot. Muchismo calor. But it's great. My favorite thing though is that there are random days that are cold and rainy. I love them for some reason. The weather is crazy here.

The work is moving along here! There is a new member in the ward named Tresea, she just moved here to start studying at the university. She was baptized a month ago in Villason (right by La Quiaca). She wants to share the gospel with everyone and has helped us teach some lessons and one day wants to be a missionary! It is cool to be able to help her learn more and prepare for the mission! Also, Pablo who was baptized in October blessed the sacrament yesterday! It was so great to see that and watch him progress in the gospel!

We were walking past some stores and I felt like we needed to talk to a man that was behind the counter in one of these stores. It turns out he has many friends that are members and has come to church before too! He was super receptive and wants to learn more! We have a lesson set with him for this Saturday so hopefully that goes well! I have learned the importance of never dismissing a thought to talk to someone. Sometimes we get straight up rejected, but most of the time the people are much more receptive than I was expecting! This work is so amazing and it is so beautiful to have the opportunity to devote all of my days to talk about the gospel!

I had a cool experience with prayer this week. One day I was feeling a little off and didn't know why. I ended up going into the bathroom and praying out loud. I really just talked to my Heavenly Father and told him everything that was on my mind. It was amazing how I felt the comfort I needed and received the strength I needed as well. I know that Heavenly Father is always listening to us. He is always there ready to help us. We just need to do our part and pray! There is so much power in prayer!

Oh something funny. I am really missing running for some reason. Weird I know. My comp doesn't want to leave the house to work out in the mornings so I ended up running in figure eights for fifteen minutes in our study room. It was quite hilarious.

I love you all so much and hope all is well! Thanks for all your love and support!
