"Unless we lose ourselves in service to others, there is little purpose to our own lives" President Thomas S Monson

Hey Everyone I just wanted to let everyone know that I love them, thanks for all the prayers and support! I want to thank all the members of the eastbluff ward for sending me sweet letters in the mail! I'm thankful for the talks an advice that each member has given me! It has brought me a lot of success in the mission field because of it! I love you all, I just want to give you all a quote from Thomas S Monson that I thought was pretty sick! 
"Unless we lose ourselves in service to others, there is little purpose to our own lives"
I love the lord, and I love humble leaders, missionary work is the best thing ever!
Love Elder Swensen

"I love the Lord more than myself, I love the words of Paul " I perceive that in all things that ye are too superstitious" Repent and Believe that God is your Father! "

Hey everyone this week has been super sicky! Elder Willhite and I tore it up this week! Yesterday we were able to rescue an awesome family and got them to church! The Morales family are so awesome! I love going over there and spending time with their family. The dad is now preparing to get his Melchizedek priesthood, and his wife is getting her interview for her patriarchal blessing so were stoked! 
Also we were able to get our boy Luis Enrique to come to church this Sunday! He is preparing to be baptized this up and coming Sunday so were stoked! I was really impressed on how he was so involved with gospel principals he was tearing it up with answers to all the questions! He is such a homie! Luis is from Cuba, and his favorite baseball team is the white socks! I'm really glad that God put us in his path. We prayed for a spot to go knock on and we came up to his door and his door was already open and he let us in so we taught him the restoration! We testified our hearts out and we have been going to his house ever since then! He was so prepared to hear the gospel and he had been praying for someone to come into  his life, to help him come closer to God! he said he is going to take me to Cuba after the mish! Overall let this be a testimony builder to you and how true the church really is! This is His work and His glory! I love the Lord more then myself, I love the words of Paul " I perceive that in all things that ye are too superstitious" Repent and Believe that God is your Father! He loves you and wants to help, I am a witness that God's power is real, and I can testify in the sacred name of Jesus Christ that this is the Lord's only true work and glory! in the sacred name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

We handed out pass along cards at the Mormon musical in Miami beach, everyone thought we were part of the show// I told them that they were a bunch a fakers// If they wanted to know the truth about our religion to ask us to get the real answers

Matthew 5:44 and 3 Nephi 12:44
"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."

Smoking for more than 30 years// stops smoking in less then two weeks and gets baptized// that is just crazy to me// this work is inspired of GOD

Smoking for 5 packs a day for more than 30 years and Maria stops smoking in less than two weeks and is baptized! A miracle for Maria!
