Mario's family are good. We shared some quotes and some Mormon Messages and it seemed to help a lot. They are in a really difficult time with some extended family stuff, but the Rama President is working with them. It makes me thankful for the gospel, I can't imagine what I would do without it. I really don't get how people make it through life happy without it.
Oh and I got my package! So that is awesome, thank you so much!
Last night was a good time because Elder Bos came down. Last night and today we will get to spend some time together before he goes home. I really love that guy, I'm going to miss him a lot. It is weird and a little sad to think I am not super far behind him.

Today we had our leader meeting and now we are just kind of relaxing. We will probably stay the night here in Coban so we can be a little more relaxed and tranquilo. We just stay with the Zone Leaders here or the Assistants to the President or the office Elders, wherever there is space.
I want to dedicate my spiritual thought to something we talked about in our meeting today. We talked about Jesus Christ and His life and Atonement, and I just want to let everyone know that I know Jesus Christ lives. I know that He paid for my sins and knows me perfectly. Only because He loves us and died for us can we return to live with Him, our families, and our Heavenly Father forever. I know that during the time that He bled from every pore in the Garden of Gethsemane, He loved and knew us perfectly. Through that love He was able to do what no one else in history could do, and finished His mission here on earth. We are so blessed! I love all of you!
Love, Elder Toolson
P.S. I'm sorry I didn't get any pictures this week
