The Package Arrived!

Hola! Como están? Todo bien? Saben que les amo?

Okay.. that is enough Spanish for the day (;

How are you guys doing?! From the emails, I would just have to say that you are all super bien! If not, I would first invite you to stop deceiving me in your emails and then I would invite you to be happy! You guys make me oh so very happy ... did you know?!

This week went pretty good! A lot happened this week.. we shall start with the best news ever!.. I got my package! It is actually a really good story.. ready?! So, I called last Monday night and I talked to the people who are in charge of the packages and letters.. some newer missionaries.. and they told me that there was nothing.. no package, no letter.. nothing with my name on it. I was absolutely bummed out.. thinking that the package got lost.. I woke up the next morning and went to the church to study, plan and have the District Meeting.. and to receive nothing.. to my very surprise.. there was a package!! I loved it! Thank you sooooo sooo much! Pictures at the bottom (: 

We will now go onto the not so good news.. we spent one whole afternoon in the hospital. Elder Figallo has had some pains in his side where his appendix is supposedly.. and after lunch one day it really was hurting him so we got permission and headed to the hospital in centro. Turns out everything is good. It would have been a complete waste of an afternoon had I not brought "Our Search for Happiness" by Elder M. Russell Ballard.. I read most of the book.. Yes you read that right.. I read! I actually enjoying reading about church topics! Also, I heard some great songs.. (; Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran, Human Nature by Michael Jackson and maybe one of the greatest songs ever.. December 1963 (Oh what a night) by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.. man I was in heaven.. too bad I was on a bus and couldn´t dance (; 

I have been having really good studies about "Love".. I am going to attempt to teach it tomorrow in my last district meeting. I am going to try to teach a lot of scriptures without opening the scriptures.. we shall see how it goes! For an inside scoop on what I will share tomorrow read the talk by Elder Jeffrey R Holland ¨The First and Great Commandment¨. 

I am soo grateful for you! I am so grateful for your advice and for your love! I sure love you all soo much and hope that you all have a  wonderful week (: Like Sky told me this week.. Find JOY in the JOurneY! 

Elder Taylor excited for a new change Abel (:
