Finished it in Spanish!...February 23, 2015

What a week!  Carnival is finally over and we got to leave and do some damage control with our investigators or see who else needed some repenting! ;)  It looked like it got pretty crazy and we definitley heard the craziness all night long and into the next day!  While we were shut indoors, our President challenged us to finish the Book of Mormon.  In 5 days I was able to finish it in Spanish.  Before I started, I made a goal to highlight every time it mentioned the Saviors name, every time a covenant was made (or a promise), obedience to a covenant, and the blessing or the consequence.. I am amazed at how many covenants are made and how many blessings are given.  It is almost as if he is just waiting to throw a blessing our way.  It made me think this week of the things I am doing to be able to receive the blessings that are waiting for me.  I am trying to be more of a consecrated missionary and it is was interesting to find out that every time someone was obedient, they made another covenant?!  I am amazed!  This week some things have happened with the people that were baptized and they have, unfortunately, chosen to do some real stupid things.  My companion and I have felt real stupid to have helped them so much and they progress so little.  I guess as a missionary you would just like to take away free agency for a little but I guess it will all work out.  My favorite part of everything we teach is Free Agency and Day of Judgment.  What are we doing to get better every day?! :)  I love you all and I am doing awesome!  It is starting to warm up here a little and we will hit the hot months here in April.  Only one more time with this heat!! Have an awesome week and  I hope your wildest dreams come true!! :P
Love, Elder Slack
