WEEK 29 .... Lindsay , California

Hola my family
So this week was a really good week we set another baptismal date with a man named Jose Vallaquez . He is really cool, he is so open and ready for the gospel. I know that the Lord has prepared a way for all things He is amazing and I know that there are even more blessings just around the corner.
So I am doing fantastic, I haven't lost any weight and its bugging me so I'm going to start running in the morning with Elder Larson so that I can get some muscle on me. Gah, being a Spanish missionary is amazing but there is just so much food directed  at you left right and centre. I know when I was at home I would always want more then one serving and here if I don't eat more the one plate then the members get well pushy...... yes pushy is the right word. When we are not with members I have really learned the value of eating healthy. I feel really good because of that we have a rule in the mission that the mission presidents wife calls 5 a day, so that's 5 servings of fruit or veggies a day. I have to tell you it helps, just not snacking and eating fruits and veggies does wonders, I can work better and I have alot more energy.
So this week we did something amazing! We got the standard of excellence, which is a standard that we strive for every week so that as a mission we can keep going forward and progressing . The standard is 3/2 which is 3 member church tours and 2 non member church tours. It is amazing to see the blessings that come from being obedient and trying our hardest. We don't always get the standard but we are always trying our best. I know that the Lord moves us forward, despite the balanced eating and 8 hours of sleep sometimes I'm just so tired and overwhelmed with what must be done. I have felt Him, with me pushing me along and being there to help me every step of the way. I have come to know that He truly in always there, and that He loves us unconditionally.
This week in my our studies Elder Larson and I came across the parable of the ten virgins and used it to teach. As we taught and read the parable with our investigator I suddenly knew how to explain it better using the book of Mormon.
 At the end of the parable the foolish virgins ask to be let in and the Lord says I know ye not. So in Mosiah 5:8-10 it shows us why the Lord didn't know them. So read that this week and tell me what you think about it, I thought it was pretty neat. 
I know that Lord gives us the things we need exactly when we need it. He is always there guiding and showing us the way, I am so grateful for him and his blessings and teaching that I have been able to see and apply in my life. I am excited to be here and serve him. 
And just to get you excited mom and dad, I'm calling on May 9th which is mothers day. So get ready because you get to hear from your missionary man. Sorry to give you the early excitement, just don't tell Vava to early or else you wont hear then end of it. Alrightly well that's all for this week so I'll talk to you all next week. I love you and thank you for everything!
Love Elder Jason Glowa
We can use some cool emoticons in the emails now so ill be sure to send some more next time.
Happy Birthday M.J  and Auntie Nat !
