Week 51

Hey everyone! We had a good week. Probably the biggest news is that Papa John's opened right around the corner so that's awesome. We went and I have to say it is pretty much exactly the same. Pretty cool. Also, they deliver so we're pretty excited about that.
Also, other big news is that my companion's nose was worse than we thought. We went last Monday and the doctor said that he needed an operation so on Wednesday he had to have surgery. So since Thursday we've had to stay in the apartment all day. I was able to arrange divisions with some members saturday so I could leave.  It was kind of a bummer but he's doing a lot better. We'll be back to work in no time.
Also I wanted to share with you guys a quote from President Diaz from his last conference-
"The truth is not relative, it's ablsolute. What's true in one eternity is true in the next. Man's knowledge can be large in one moment and small in the next, or visa versa, but the ammount of final truth doesn't increase or diminish by revelations received or discoveries made. For example, Jesus Christ is the Son of God and salvation is based in His atoning sacrifice. Responsible people can only be saved on the condition that they have faith, repent, are baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. These are absolute truths. It applies to every living person since Adam till the last man. There's nothing relative about it. In the same way: Joseph Smith was chosen by the Lord in the restoration of the Gospel in the Latter-days. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Kingdom of the Lord on the Earth and the only place where you can find salvation. Once again, these are absolute, eternal, and final truths."  Love it!
That's pretty much it for the week but the mission is going great. I love this Gospel and sharing it with others. I hope everyone has a great week. Love you all
