Well, the weeks are just flying by it seems like. I feel like I
wrote just yesterday! But its a good thing.. I guess haha. So, this
week was great! We were able to see the baptism of another one of
our investigators, Rina, this last Saturday. She received the Holy
Ghost the next day, Sunday, and was confirmed member of the Church.
She is great! Its always a blessing to see our investigators
progress towards baptism.
This week we have been putting a greater effort in "rescuing"
inactive members. By doing so we have been able to find more people
to teach and that have their hearts ready and willing to accept the
gospel. We actually found a couple families that we are now
teaching, and we hope that they will be able to progress. My comp
and I are going to do everything we can so that they may attend
church, get married, and be baptized. They already have felt the
power and Spirit of our message and they are willing to change their
lives in order to live righteously and according to the will of the
Lord. Its awesome!!
I got the envelope that Michelle's family sent! Haha, tell them
thanks so much for that! And always to Jacquie, thanks as well! I
got her letter. She always writes on that fun paper, that honestly I don't know how she still has, from her mission in Korea!
This week I complete a year and a half in the mission. SO weird to
think about. But I am continuing to work hard and to be obedient in
order to see the blessings that the Lord has prepared for me. I have
seen them time and time again in my mission and I am so thankful to
be serving here at this time in my life. I don't think I can put into
words the feelings that I have towards my mission. All I can say is
that this is a time to work, work, and work. Its something so
special to be able to dedicate 100% of my time to the Lord and His
Tell the boys to write me, I really miss them. I had a dream last
night about us all together again, and how happy we were. Haha, just
a thought. But don't force them. I don't want them to feel pressured.
Next week I hope to hear from mom! I'm so sorry mom that you got
sick! Don't worry about not being able to write.
Next week I'll be 21... Also another weird feeling! Oh well, asi es
la vida. We pass through life meeting a lot of people, but we hold
on to those who mean the most to us.
This week I was reflecting on the fact how interesting it is that
these two years add up to ten percent of my life. Interesting, huh?
Well, I hope all of you are safe and sound, and I love you all! Keep
