week 50

Hey! So unfortunately you will probably be disappointed with this letter because I am writing late, and we have a meeting soon so I don't have very much time to write. We were playing soccer all the way in La Tinta and had to make it back here for the meeting so we couldn't write there.
The zone meeting last week was awesome! We talked about grace, and working as one, and making sure that we have a spiritual experience every lesson and every time we pray. I'm including a picture with my buddy Elder Andersen, he is going home next week so I had to get my pic with him.

I was able to baptize Herylinda this week so that was awesome! She was married and then baptized right afterwards.

We are going to do the same thing with Henry this week so that will be awesome! We will keep working and exercising faith!
My spiritual thought this week comes from the zone meeting lesson about grace. Just how the grace comes not after everything that is asked of us, but after everything we are able to do. Grace makes up the difference. I love this as a missionary because we put goals, and that is what we are asked to do, and we do our best but sometimes we fall short. But we should always be trying to do more. And if we reach our goals, we can raise them.

I love you!
Love, Elder Toolson
