''We just have to remind them to choose him again''

Good week not much to report. We have had a little rain but most days we are still working through the heat.

We are still on the hunt for more souls to save but we have been teaching a man named Hector and he is golden. He was raised Catholic but believes more in 'energy' right now. The funny thing was that when we first contacted him we thought he was a 'snake' (or someone that is really more interested in flirting than hearing about the gospel) but I forgot to write that when I took down his number so I called him and we set up an appointment. To our surprise he is really prepared. He recognized the spirit from the beginning and he said hearing everything is like remembering something he had forgotten- or putting words to a belief he already had. We are excited for him.
The other week he did ask our opinion about extra terrestrials... that was an interesting conversation.

My companion loves to say: The people out there already choose to follow Christ once before this life, we just have to remind them to choose him again.''  It has been so much fun helping Hector remember. Pray that he can come to church this week please.

We FINALLY got the conference addition of the Liahonna so I have been on cloud nine enjoying that this week. I want to share something from Elder Utchdorf's talk he said: ''Iwe look at ourselves only through our mortal eyes, we may not see ourselves as good enough. but our Heavenly Father sees us as who we truly are and who we can become.He sees us as His sons and daughters, as beings of eternal light with everlasting potential and with divine destiny.''
I want to challenge you to look through your Father's eyes and give yourself to him. Recognize that your value is not in who you are now or who you were but in what you can become.

Elder Uchdorf continues:
''God will take you as you are at this very moment and begin to work with you. All you need is a willing heart, adesire to believe, and trust in the Lord.''
Give yourself to him. Let him take you. He knows you better than you. I promise.
I love you guys so much!
