hola familia!!!!

so today marks 6 months since i have seen my family. i was set apart as a missionary and headed off to the airport 6 months ago today. thats crazy! im already done with 1/4 of my mission! ah! time flies!

so this has been an interesting week because i was sick for more than half of it! it was awful but everything is good now and im feeling great! this like 50 year ild lady was hitting on us this morning and it was disturbning so that was interesting. also it rainedhard and we got soaked and it was cold! youre all heading into the heat as im heading into the cold but atleast i dont need to worry about snow while im here!

we also had general conference this week and it was good wasnt it? remember to keep president monson in your prayers for his health, he was looking a little sick this conference but he still got up and said some good thnings. the man has great diligence!

one thing that i liked about confrence was froom elder holland. at the end of his talk he talked about how we should cherish the things that have been made possible through christ. if you think about it there are many things that wouldnt be possible had he not died for us. because of him we can repent and be clean from sin. because of him we can be saved and live eternally with our father in heaven. becauyse of him we can change. because of hime we can be ressurected.

holland also talked about how the first commandment is to love god with all our heart, but that the first truth is that god loves us with all his heart. because of his love we are here to obtain a body of flesh and bones like him. because of his love he sent his son to opèn opportunities for us to recieve the greatest possble blessings. because of his love we have a prohet to guide us back to him. because of his love we can love.

i know that he loves us and that he wants only the best for his children. we need always remember that christ made these things possiblke for us and that he did because he loves us.

i love you all and i hope you have an amazing week!

With lots of love,

-Elder Sims
