Sunburns and Temple trips! | week 72


Hey guys!

Well sorry I wasn't able to email you guys yesterday we got a phone call from the assistants on Sunday night letting us know that we would be going to the temple on tuesday with the zone so we had a normal work day yesterday. 

Thanks for all the pictures and info on Heidi`s memorial run! Man I wish I could have been there too support and run. There is always next year. Thanks for running in my name Mom and Dad. I love you guys. I keep Heidi in my heart everywhere I go. I still have a hard time imaging coming home and not finding her there in Rocklin. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every one of his children. And that the sting of death is swallowed up in the love and atonement of Christ who overcame death and rose again on the third day.

Congratulations on all the new callings! Dad i had a feeling you would be back there with all the young men again! And Mom I'm sure you will revolutionize the ward bulletin haha. Remember its not important where we serve but how we serve! 

Well last week was another good one for me and Elder G. We started things off great on Tuesday and Wednesday with alot of really good lessons! We kept teaching M and really felt the spirit stongly on Tuesday when we taught her about the Restoration! She has been praying and even fasting for an answer. The R Family is progressing well too, we have seen a change in them. They seem happier and get really excited when we come to visit. 

Valentines day was a struggle for us haha. Not alot of people home but we made the best of it knocking on alot of doors!

My companion and I both got our summer "Cuts" the number two. Its starting to heat up here in Guatemala. Its bringing back memories of  last year sweating it out in Llano largo. Elder G keeps us laughing, he is one of the funniest people I've ever met haha. This morning at 5.30 when the alarm went off he just jumped on my bed yelling "Im so happy" as we got out of bed and headed to the temple haha.

The temple was awesome today! The last time I went was about 7 months ago! I got to see the new temple video for the first time. So powerful. So much emotion. If you havent been lately I recommend going. There is a peace that is found in the Temples of God. What an amazing place to learn and grow.

Well alot of the things I do can be pretty repetitive haha. I have gotten pretty used to running around and solving problems. I love the fast pace though because it keeps me busy and the time goes by quick.

I loved reading an article in the Ensign this week for Febuary. Elder Scott gave a talk about how to live your life with purpose and meaning. Thinking alot this week I have been so blessed to be a member of this church. The gospel of Christ has shaped my life and through the atonement I have been changed. I have a long way to go and we are all in the enduring to the end part. I know that if we do the little things that bring the spirit into our lives and into our homes we will be blessed with peace on earth and eternal life in the world to come. I love my Savior and I love his gospel. I know that families are sealed for time and all eternity in the temples of the lord. I am so grateful for my family and the many wonderful people who have touched my life.

I hope you all have a great week! I love you all so much. Keep moving forward. "The future is as bright as your faith"

Con amor,

Elder Hughes
