This week has been short and sweet. We have not done a lot, but we do what we can. I went on an exchange and it went very well. Taking charge of stuff is pretty scary but is also very fun, and really crazy. The exchange was with Elder Batista who is a really cool guy (no he is not related to the wrestler). He is super funny and loads of fun. He really has lots of things to talk about and has had a pretty rough life. He is such a good kid, though he is from Idaho, and is really lucky to have what he does – but he is none the less a really great guy.
This week has been a lot of teaching. We just go from house to house teaching everything that we feel. We are really working hard to help one of our investigators, Latoya, get ready for baptism. She is scared of how everything works and wants to be positive that she will not fall away.
Sorry this letter is so short but the next one will be really good with zone conference coming up, and soon transfers. I love you so much and know that the things this church teaches are really from God. Look at Romans 8:16 for an example of how God loves us so much – we are all his children no matter what we do and say. We are always going to be that!
Week of April 17th
This week has been crazy. To start off we had a great Tuesday but we didn’t have district meeting because of zone conference. We had a lot of fall throughs which I am used to so I am over it. We taught a lot of really good people that day.
Wednesday was sad. We had such a great day planned – and no one was home. We had planned on teaching a lot of people and they told us to not come by that day or just weren’t home. Thursday has been sad as well but pretty good. We had a lot of lessons planned but only like 3 actually happened; but I know that when you make contacts you find the elect that are ready to hear the gospel.
Friday was soooooo cool we had zone conference and it was so good. Our Mission President talked about the blessings and covenant of Abraham, I learned so much. Our President is the coolest man I have ever met, and he really works alongside the Lord in teaching and running this mission.
Saturday we got up and didn’t even have time to study before we had to go to interviews with the Mission President. Those went really well and the spirit was so strong, especially as we talked about how much he loves me. This showed me how much he represents Jesus Christ in all that he does. He is so amazing and has such a big heart.
Sunday was the coolest. We got up and helped all of the members and investigators get on a bus to travel over the river to go to a multi-branch conference. When we got there President Egbert announced that the branch I am in is being shut down and is being combined with Rosignal to form a new branch. This side of the world is working very hard to get a temple in Guyana, and it is working towards that pretty fast. The missionaries are so great in this country and the people that are here are so loving and humble.
Today has been great, and I know that it is only going to be get better. I love you so much it is insane. You are the best. I want you to know that this gospel can change anyone as long as they know why they are doing it. I want you to all smile more and love the reason you are alive. I know that this church is true and The Book of Mormon is what is needed the most at this time in the world!!!!!!
