Today has been an interesting day! Received a call from President
about transfers this week, I will be leaving the area and becoming a
District Leader! I am super excited for the new assignment, but sad to
see this area go. We were able to accomplish a lot while we were here.
We have had 5 baptisms and a possibility of 8 more. We were able to
get the lessons up to 43 lessons per week. And we were able to split
the area. I'm grateful for what the Lord was able to help us
accomplish. When we first came in we were at 6 lessons or so per week.
The Lord is my light and his grace is sufficient for all. We were able
to have three baptisms this week as well. Ian, Tyler, and Derek All
three of them went so good and the spirit was so strong. I love the
mission and I am learning so much and continually increasing in faith.
It is such a blessing to be here and I know I'm becoming the man,
husband, father, and child of God I have the potential to become. I
love the mission and it is such a blessing to be here. To see the
light shine within the eyes of these three wonderful people as they
followed Christ's example and were baptized and received the Holy
Ghost, it was amazing! We saw many miracles in this area and it was
probably one of the best transfers I've had on the mission. I loved
the time spent with Elder Bullock and Matuwa and for all the people I
was able to meet. I have loved his area and I love this mission. Sorry
this is so short but I am so grateful for all the Lord has blessed me
with! Have a wonderful week! Love you all!
P.S- 1Ne 8-14- I really love these couple of scriptures as we learn
that to partake of the atonement of Jesus Christ (Tree of Life) we
need to hold continually to the word of God. If we do so, we will fall
down our knees and feel of Christ's atonement. The devil will have no
power over us, and we will have joy and happiness above all other
things. I know the Book of Mormon can bring us joy and peace. It can
give us direction and help us to overcome the temptations of the
adversary. This week I will be reading 1Ne 15-18!
