Mar 3

Dear family,
Wow i can't believe how fast the misson is going. It seems just like yesterday I was in the MTC. 
This week has been so great. 
This week we were able to have a meeting with one of the seventies his name is Elder Evans. He is so great. He taught us so much. I would like to share somethings with you that we learned.
Also i went on a exchange with Elder Engebretsen, he was in the MTC with me and right now is my Zone Leader.
But first of all i want to answer your questions
1.It is something the people use here to drink something called Yerba. It is like tea. 
2.Also haha a pension is an apartment... ha sorry i am trying my hardest to use only english words in my e-mails sometimes, i just don´t remeber them...
3. Also for our P-days, we usually try to clean and today we are going to play basket ball!!! oh ya! 
4. This week we have taught well and we are talking with so many people and we are trying to help our ward. In 2 weeks we are going ot help baptize a man from the picture below. His name is Carlos and his wife is his spouse. We are so excited. it is kind of like you, dad and mom. They are getting married on the 13th and then he is getting baptized on the 16!

Dad, you mentioned in your letter that prayer is a way to align our will with that of the will of god. in Alma 29:1
 ought not to harrow up in my desires the firm decree of just God, for know that he granteth unto men according to their adesirewhether it be unto death or unto life; yea, knowthat he allotteth unto men, yea, decreeth unto them decrees which are unalterable, according to their bwillswhether they be unto salvation or unto destruction.
This scripture says that according to our desires god is going to give us an opportunity to fulfill with our desires.
SO if our desires our to serve god we will have that and if our desires our to do something else, God will grant us an opportuinty to prove it.. whether it be for our destruction or for our good. It really makes me think... HOw important it is to have the same desires of God.
I invite you all to keep your smiles and to love God with all your mith mind and Heart!! and to read the family a proclamation to the world together.
Also this week i was able  to go on exchanges with Elder Engebretsen. WOw it was so fun. we worked so hard and i love them so much. i will have to take a picture with him and i will send it to you next week... also this is the last week of this transfer so i will write you next Tuesday.
I love you all so much,
Elder Hicks!
