Search diligently, pray always, and be believing

One of my very favorite scriptures! D&C 90:24 ¨Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if you walk uprightly and remember the covenants wherewith you have covenanted one with another.¨ It´s just so great! Ahh I love the scriptures. Maybe I´ll just study religion and study scriptures forever haha. I have such a strong testimony of how great the blessings are of studying the scriptures daily, truly, ¨feasting upon the words of Christ¨ :) 
Just thought I´d share that today :)

Elder Illanes (my new companion) was born in Santa Cruz, but moved all over the place his whole life. He lived in all the areas of Bolivia at some point, and even in Brazil for a time. He was supposed to go to Venezuela for his mission, and I don´t know if you heard, but they have taken all the missionaries out of that country, and all the missionaries that were supposed to go there were transferred to other missions or just stayed where they were. Elder Illanes is really great though. He has the most incredible stories! He has lived a pretty incredible life to this point. 

I heard there were political uprisings of some sort, and that it wasn't safe for any missionaries to be there. 

Yeah that fell through (baptism). This week was a little rough for us, we had so much hope and good things happening, and it all just seemed to crash down around us this week. It´s been a little cold but not too much. But the cold will return. :D ahhhhhh at church... No just more problems. haha this branch is a bit difficult. but we´re praying!
