4th Quarter

Hey Fam!
I am so glad to here you are all doing so well! You are such a grand support for me and I love you tons! I have missed you a lot more this week I don't know why. Hemana Bluth wanted to see photos of our families when we had interviews with President and I think that it kind of made me trunky looking at all of the pictures of you guys. I want you to know how deep my love for each one of you is. I can't think about you guys too much because I get all teary, but each of you are my heroes.
I appreciate your thoughts in your letters this morning. I was able to briefly read through your letters. It was great to hear about mom's experiences and I am grateful for the thoughts she shared with me. It was something that I needed. They were answers to my prayers. I was also very happy too hear about dad's back. I have been worried about him. I am grateful that he is doing well. I also want to thank him for his thoughts.
I can't believe that Grace got braces. That caught me completely off guard. As well as the idea that Emma will have her license this week! Speaking of braces, I think Charlie has the greatest smile in the family now after seeing the Christmas card. Hna Bluth was very grateful for the Christmas card by the way, I could tell it meant a lot to her.
As Dad said, I feel like my mission experience has been nothing like what I thought it would be. I feel like I am learning  some very important lessons and I am really learning to come to Christ. I feel like there is a very, very, very long way to go. I am trying to put more emphasis in my study of the attributes of Christ to help me. It has been a very humbling experience. Lots of ups and downs. I am grateful for dad's experience in the temple. There are times when I rely on that experience a lot. I feel like I am growing a lot. I think I have aged a lot on my mission, there is quite a difference between my first chilean ID and my second chilean ID.
I watched Ephraim's Rescue today, I love that movie so much. It inspires me a ton. I feel like I can really relate to Ephraim. In frustration for my imperfections, I hope that I can overcome them like he did.
We had two great experiences at the end of the week that really lifted me. We found two investigators that accepted baptismal dates. They are very nice people and I have a lot of hope for them. It was a really sweet blessing after a little bit of a frustrating week. Miracles do happen!
My focus for the fourth quarter is LOSE YOURSELF! 

Sorry this letter is a little choppy.
