¡Buenos dias mis amigos!

Wakeboarding in the streets. We've gotten a little bit of rain this week.

The closest we can get to the beach - Puerto Cancun
 This week was a little crazy because of all the rain and transfers. Me and my comp are staying here so its officially the first time I have the same comp for more than one transfer! Ha not to rain on my own parade, but we aren't doing so great right now. I have learned a whole lot though that its so much easier to let go the little things that bug you than to let them bottle up inside until you explode haha. Forgiving others for their dumb mistakes is a lot more important than being right I guess you could say. Pride is of the devil my friends haha those are my words of wisdom for the week and THEY ARE TRUE.

One funny thing that happened was that I got an ingrown toenail and I could barely walk so I worked all day with one normal shoe and a sandal with a sock on hahaha. To make it more ridiculous I put a plastic bag around it to keep it from getting wet.

My district leader from Riverton!
So the highlight of the week was when President Salinas came to see us in person for the last time and gave us the best life advice about always praying and if you dont want to pray watch out cause Satan is close! He told us to go to the temple frequently and to always pay our tithing and a generous fast offering and we will always have a happy family. DEAL! Ha and the best part is that he gave every single one of the missionaries in our zone a Priesthood blessing. How cool is that?! #christlikemoment Just like in the Book of Mormon! 

SHOUT OUTS for Tommy Gilmore and THE Sarah Henretty for getting ready for their missions! Oh and one for the best dad in the world, Vint Gary Shurtliff because next week is Fathers Day!!! Love ya pops!

For Uncle Paul
Thank you so much everyone for all the love and support!
