Still Alive

Well, I hope everyone´s still alive. I sure am! WHoo. Happy and healthy (but a little sick too). Looks like since I´m finishing up everyone is starting to get lazy and has stopped writing me. It´s alright, I don´t blame you. 
I will now tell you of the struggle that I had before the Lord during this last week... There was in the town of Santiago del Estero a pair of missionaries in a little run down house. They were obedient before the Lord but it would seem that luck was not with them as a rat lived within those walls. It came to a point when those two servants of the Lord could not handle anymore the bad smell and infinite pellets that scattered the floor. They made a trap. But it would seem that luck was not with them because the rat was not fond of the trap. Fervent prayers were said daily. Fervent searching and patience began to lose their vigor. The fight continues to this very day. Tune in next week to find out how it ends...........
On a more spiritual thought, as I finish up the mission I come to realize more and more why things happen. It has even become much easier to accept the trials that the Lord gives me without asking myself why. My persona has changed and my point of view has been reformed. It´s a complete miracle. I can´t explain how much happiness flows through my very being. Ammon felt a very similar feeling and his brothers chewed him out. Haha ¨But Ammon said unto him: I do not boast in my own strength, nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with joy, and I will rejoice in my God.
12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.¨
I know it, I live it, I love it!
Elder Philpot
