service is the key to a happy and righteous life

hello family :) ok so the week of conference we didn't get to watch it because it was elections in iquitos and so its a law that there are no meetings allowed to happen the day before elections and the day of and the day after. so we proselyted all weekend and yeah.. so yesterday and saturday we got to listen. and it was awesome!!! the gringos were so excited cause we got to listen to it in english in our own little gringo room! i'm so glad to cause its hard to take notes while they talk in spanish. the zone leader was saying how conference is awesome cause its like a little piece of america with just the gringos in the room speaking english lol. so it was awesome. i agree with lana about the joseph smith talk! blew my mind. before conference i wrote down all my questions and concerns that i had about life and all of them were responded. it was super sweet. i'm glad because now i feel more tranquila. i loved all the talks but one that stood out to me was Jorg Klebingats. he was amazing and blunt! i laughed how at the beginning he was like "my intentions aren't to offend anyone" then he was like "alright number one....what would you do if you had an interview with jesus christ right now.." then he laid down the law. it was awesome! i loved it so much.i like how he said to become good at repenting cause if we do that we will come to understand the atonement better and learn to accept jesus christ as our saviour.
     Elder Holland's was amazing too i wanted to go out and serve as soon as he was done speaking. "we retain a remission of our sins by serving others" its so true. service is the key to a happy and righteous life.
     so its kinda funny how lana mentioned that whenever her investigators see her family pics they drool all over brendan. that's exactly what they do here to! every time they ask to see a pic i prepare myself. hahaha they ask if he's single and if hes an RM and its funny cause my comp is always like "he's waiting for me" hahahaha then they get all sad!  but then she says just joking. but seriously every single person has drooled over brendan! its so funny. 
         so i'm still enjoying the mission. i wonder if lana got changed. we have cambios next monday and i have a little feeling that i'm going to train someone this next cambio cuase theres 13 new hermanas coming. and one of the sister leaders is leaving and i bet my comp now will be the new sister leader. we´will see! oh ya before i forget... i went to go test out my bank card and it wouldn't work! can you tell mom to please go to the bank and tell them to make sure i can use it in peru? ughhh. haha i beat myself up over losing my bank card in Lima MTC!!! 
          so i'm glad to hear that tennyson takes care of my car and that you're going to put a new stereo in it and not taking out my subs! hahah i love my subs! there is a way to adjust the audio on the stereo but its kinda weird to do it and really annoying cause sometimes it doesn't work. so how's the weather? any snow that's actually stuck to the ground? well i love you all lots!

ps man the dogs last night were so annoying. one barked at the air for 3 hours straight. i was so tempted to run outside to make it be quiet but that's against the rules so i just opened the window and yelled and it but that made it worse. so now i'm tired!! LOL
yep i held this mono. reminds me of ?????????????!!
this pics funny cause our motocar ran outta gas on the way to conference so we hopped in another one and he pushed the motocar that ran outta gas with his foot to the gas station.. only in iquitos... lol
our zone leaders pensionita. she loves us!!
