If you haven't read up on your German music composers, you should probably read up. George Frideric Handel was the coolest guy who had a lot of opposition and then great inspiritation to write MESSIAH and become famous. I read about him in a random Liahona in the house from December 2010. (elder spencer j. condie)  I learned seven important life lessons from him.
         we have to be confident in ourselves but grow from criticism
          quantity is no substitute for quality and variety
           when we act with inspiration, we are doing heavens work
           we must acknowledge our source of inspiration
           we must never underestimate the power of the word
           we must invite real spiritual meaning into a work-that being invite the Holy Ghost.
           power is in God and His works, not our words.
Also, Rudyard Kipling said Trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too.
Basically this is a great work that we have ... and it's important to trust God and trust ourselves with what we have to do. One of my friends inspired me to ask God if I were pleasing Him this week and what I could do to please Him more. I exhort you to do the same. It will bless your life!

Our two investigators, Marilyn and Tamara have baptism dates and went to church! wahoooo. Okay. thats it for this week. I hope all is well with all y'all. love ya

We have been teaching our cute recent converts how to be ward missionaries. They kept praising us and saying how professional we are to teach. I think it's the spirit. ....me and the spanish language and professional would never be in the same sentence.
We had an awesome zone conference. I loved it so much. We learned about the life of christ. I want to go to Israel. We had an awesome musical number. just kidding. I got to sing a solo. It was fun. It was the first solo I really got into and tried hard (so hard that un gallo salio) ...my voice cracked. haha but it was fun to develop my talents and many people complimented me. Someone said I sang like adele. ahha...
I felt the spirit so strong on sunday. It was so long since we had renewed our covenants and I just knew that this is his work and that the church is true. Since I know its true it's time to act, keep trying my best and share with everyone I can. The spirit gives me so much help. I love it. anyways.
We did yoga as a mission zone. The worst thing ever. I have the body of a ninety year old man. I'm all downward dogged out. hahah have a good one! love, Hermana Nokes
