Numero 80 ~ Putting patience into practice

Hey fam!
It was a good week this week for us! Well, I am not a teenager anymore. So sad. I dont know how i am liking the feeling of being 20. I feel old haha. I feel like I have to be a responsable adult now.....weird. I got a lot of calls from a bunch of missionaries telling me happy birthday which was cool and an Elder in my zone invited me to lunch today so it was pretty good. I cant really do much but for what i can do i enjoyed it haha. Also, I hit 19 months in my mission. I got about 5 months left in this thing. I am going to make the most out of these 5 months that I still got. 
We did really good this week. We found some really cool new people. We got our progressing investigadors up and got up the people that are on a baptismal date. We are really satisfied because a family that we found went to church this week. The cool thing to was it was a conference so the whole stake went. It was a good conference and they seemed to have enjoyed it a lot. We are excitedt to be able to go and teach them again. 
There were some changes in the zone last night. One elder went home and another got transferred out. So I will be getting a new elder in my district this week which will be cool. 
We had a couple really weird days this week though. A lot of rejections this week. I remember in the beginning of my mission when someone would reject me i would get mad and frustrated and now I kind of laugh and smile about it. I realize that I have developed a lot of patience here in my mission. Something that I didnt have before my mission. My comp made a comment to me that I am a very patient person. I have learned that the patience is something that one can develop through practice. If we put patience into practice we will be able to not let the little things affect us in our lives and we will be able to stay focused on our goals and be happy about doing it. Patience is a very important trait of Christ. 
Well thats what I got for you guys! I love you all so much! Thank you all for your birthday wishes!
