Week 57 - Manvel

Hi Fam!
    What it is my doge?!  Those pictures of Emma and the snowman are cute.  
I do not miss snow.  Like, at all.
New years was pretty fun! We had to be home by 8 pm. then we taped glow-sticks to our ceiling fan. We then fell on the floor and watched the glow-stick light show. We joked and talked until midnight then casually said, "woo, let's go to bed now." it was awesome!
So yeah, we have fleas in this new apartment.  We told everyone the second we noticed that we had been feasted upon by the little demons. Our complex cannot do anything until the 9th, so we got these "Flea Foggers" at Walmart and set them off in the apartment. That helped a lot, we are going to get some more and send all of the little jumpy piles straight back to heck.

    B. is doing awesome! She keeps telling us how much she wants to get baptized and follow Christ. The only problem is that her parents will not allow her to get baptized.
We also have; A., H., C., J., and other J. haha  They are all doing pretty well.
A. is the mom of a recent convert and she is the coolest old lady ever.  She is going to be baptized on the 28th of this month. We want her son to do it, wouldn't that be neat?
 
Hey Mom, I Stand All Amazed made me cry in Sacrament yesterday. 

Something that really caught my attention this week was in 2 Nephi 32:3. 
Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, said unto you,  
feast upon the words of Christ; for behold,the words of Christ  
will tell you all things what ye should do.
I love how it says to Feast upon the words of Christ. In Spanish it commands us to delight ourselves in the words of Christ. That is so much more than just reading the scriptures. We have to make them part of us. Part of our everyday lives. As we do this they will tell us all things that we should do. 
 
Love ya framily!!!  (misspelled on purpose)

P.S.
Hey, as a missionary, I would much rather get a weekly letter than a weekly email.  Just food for thought ;P
 
 
Hermana Yanas made us some really good food.
 Ohhh, scary....
 GTR!!
