This week was crazy! it stared out with District Meeting which i am not going to lie it is super nice not to have to prepare for. Then we went on exchanges with Kenner Spanish and i went and biked around with Kenner and that was fun to get to know their area it didn't help me learn mine but hey, half a loaf is better than no loaf. So exchange ended on Thursday so we had to plan 1 the ZTMs and 2 the wedding that is this Saturday. So we run and do all that and just like every night we come into the apartment at 930 on the dot completely exhausted and just like every other night our phone explodes with every missionary needs something.
Friday we have ZTM i was super nervous but it turned out really good. Then we can finally go see people. Then Saturday night at 10 i get a call from the High councilmen and he wants me to give a talk in Church so i say sure... and then Church, This is what church is when you are a Zone Leader you go to PEC then church in which you teach a class, Give a talk and then as soon as you are done with your talk you translate for the High counsilman that missed his calling as an auctioneer. Then Coordination 3 hours of it haha. Now i know that sounds a lot like complaining but it is not. We are busy. I have opportune abilities to serve so many people. I am learning and growing in was i didn't even think possible. Life is awesome. Be happy its just a choice, make it.
President Hansen this is the life!

THE VISION OF THE SOUTH
"Make no small plans: This is the vision I have for the South. I believe that one day the South will baptize more people into the church than all other English speaking missions in the world together....We will see the time when we will baptize hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands...In your day you will see a million members of the church in the South. There will be temples plural in the Southern States. What a great call you have to serve with these marvelous people." President Spencer W. Kimball
