New Beginnings
Helloo everyone!! 
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas :D We can sure feel the love of the members here, especially from all the food they share with us. Truly, we are so blessed. This week alone I think I've eaten the most cake than that in the entire time I've been serving a mission. Ooh we ate a lot of sugar and candy and food from the dinners and such haha They are all so sweet and give us little things here and there but all good... And now we anticipate the new year how excited 2016!!! 

This year of 2015 went by so super fast, have absolutely no idea where it went but the thing I love about a new year is the goals that we set and clearly we have the chance always or rather anytime of the year to set goals however I love the beginning too because it gives us that perspective of 365 days, what is it we want to accomplish or reflect on what we want to improve. When setting goals, it is also, of course, important to assure that they be SMART goals. For those of you who maybe at the moment don't know or can't remember.. SMART goals are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Applicable, Realistic, and with Time. 

I have already set my goals and desires for this year. When setting goals it is also recommendable.. is that a word?... or just recommended?... you decide haha well it is a good idea to of course, consult the Lord in His will for us. We may have things in mind but so does He, so we need to be able to aline our will with His. 

I know that as we constantly look to Him for guidance and assurance, He will direct us. It sometimes may be a scary thing, to completely trust in Him, but as we practice that willingness, He will bless us even more. I personally like to consider more than we can imagine :)

Hermana Carbajal and I are doing great, she is wonderful, just awesome, I feel like I hardly need to train her because she learns so fast and on her own applies everything. We are having a bit of difficulties right now with a lot of people to teach but we keep on trying. I hope that we can each do our part and try a little harder to be better than yesterday and serve others the best we can. And I know that if we don't have that desire, we can pray and ask for it so that we can become like Jesus Christ, God's only begotten son. Have a great week and Happy New Year!!!!!
