"...Make the days count"

Esta semana pasada fue divertido. Yo fui a dos areas para los cambios. Fui a los barrios Cedar Park y Lake Austin. Lake Austin es un barrio español. Los lideres de la zona sirven allí. Hablar en español por un día fue divertido. El barrio Cedar Park es ingles. Aprendiò mucho en los dos intercambios.
Aprendimos muchas acerca de la expiacion todavia. Nuestro paquet que leemos es lleno de buenas charlas. Una cosa que yo aprendí esta semana es: Porque Jesucristo fue perfecto, no necesita hacer la expiacion por su propia salvacion, porque Él ya fue salvado. Con o sin la expiacion, el todavia es salvado. Pero el hizo todo para que podemos ser salvados. Entonces, la expiacion es unicamente para nosotros. Todas las cosas que tenemos que hacer para regresar a Dios, aprendimos en la iglesia.

This past week was fun. I went to two areas for change. I went to Cedar Park neighborhoods and Lake Austin. Lake Austin is a Spanish neighborhood. The leaders of the area served here. Speaking in Spanish for a day was fun. The Cedar Park neighborhood is English. Learned a lot in the two exchanges.
We learned a lot about the atonement yet. Our package we read is full of good talks. One thing I learned this week is: Because Jesus Christ was perfect, no need to make atonement for his own safety, because he was already saved. With or without the atonement, he still is saved. But he did everything so that we can be saved. Then the atonement is only for us. All things that have to do to return to God, we learned in church.

I remember that you had a couple questions in your letter to me this last week, dad. I'm sorry but I forgot it back at our house. But a little info about the area (because I think that might have been what you asked) is: We cover one ward. It is an english ward. All the spanish people that we find, we refer to the zone leaders. The spanish ward covers the whole stake boundaries. We basically cover the southern half of Pflugerville. We do live with the bishop. He was called to be bishop on the first or second Sunday that I was here. That is really awesome that everyone is doing well. I am excited that dad got that project over at the ball fields. Is it the new ones up by the middle school? Also we do have enough copies of the BOM to give out to people but thanks for the concern. But that would be cool to get a couple of them with your testimonies in it to give away to people. Great idea! Also just fyi. I bought a gps a month or so ago and we have a Ross in our area so I might buy some more pants and shirts there in the next couple of weeks. Also, strangely, my big toe on my left shoe has almost worn all the way through. I believe that my warranty at MM covers that so I was wondering if I needed to send a pic or the whole shoe.....
I love you all and hope for the best. I hope that you all succeed in your endeavors and that Erik will continue to recover. Tell Erik he is a stud and to keep pushin' all the way through his recovery and beyond. You are the best family. God bless.

Con amor,

P.S. Please tell all the young women thanks for the letters. I enjoyed reading them. Also tell the track team to work hard and that I wish them luck during this next season.
