It was so wonderful to speak with my family.
It has been quite a week. I have learned a lot this week about patience and staying focused. Although transfers weren’t this past week I have had a change in companions. I am now in a trio with another companionship in our ward, so I’ll still be able to work with our investigators up here. This is important so we can continue to keep the area alive. President let me know that I’m going to take over the area next transfer. This is such a blessing as we have 3 baptisms planned and the work is going good. I am so blessed to serve and receive so many blessings on my mission. The Lord is mindful of each of us and our situations. If we have faith and then do what we are supposed to He will provide miracles and blessings. This I can testify to.
Thanks for all the continued love and support. Happy Thanksgiving!
Boy, time sure does fly by down here in Houston. It’s been a pretty rough week, but this next week is already looking a lot better so that’s good! I’ve been able to really improve with my Spanish this past week, I’ve been focusing a ton on learning new vocabulary. I feel bad because I haven’t been writing too much in these emails.
Miracles at this point are regular, but they’re still just as wonderful. Miracles like your companion having a flat tire on his bike, leading us to meet a guy that invited us over. Miracles like stopping last minute to talk to a passing Hispanic, and having it turn out that they are familiar with the church, know members from our ward, and commit to be baptized that lesson. It’s been real great. These miracles are what keep me going when it feels like everything else is falling through.
This week I’ve really been pondering on the nature of the sacrifice of our Savior, specifically when it is described as “infinite and eternal.” In my short time here, I’ve already met so many people that have struggled through stuff that I can’t even imagine. Sometimes I wonder how they are standing there in front of me; I wouldn’t be able to go through the same thing. But nevertheless, no matter the trial, Christ suffered it. And his Atonement applies to EVERYONE, ALWAYS. Infinite=Everyone; Eternal=Always. All you have to do is follow Him, and you can be covered under this infinite and eternal umbrella if you open up your heart to His message. The storms of sin and death cannot compromise this umbrella, and its only because he’s the one that is holding it. See what I did there?
Anyways, I love you all. I believe in Christ, I love Him and I know He loves me and all of us. Keep up the good work, thank you for all the support.
Til next week!
Just a couple of pics!
Howdy y’all! Hope you had a great week!
I’ll make this short. General conference was amazing! I love hearing from our prophet and I hope that each of you recognizes the inspiration he receives for all of us.
Wow 2 hour church, they are putting so much trust in the members now! This is for sure a sign of the times.
It’s humbling to see how people can have so little here yet still have a firm belief in God and in Christ. It honestly gives us no excuse for lacking faith. I testify that we all have the potential to trust completely in our Savior, this week I invite you to recognize one thing that might be holding you back from deeper conversion, and pray to find a solution. I promise blessings if you do this!
Love you all, have a great week!
