Things are going great! I got back from my last divisions yesterday in R. V.! We went to Stake Conference there, it was fantastic, I got to see several of the members that I knew when I served there, it was a fun experience!
We moved to a new house! I´m only going to sleep there 3 or 4 nights, but it´s going to be great for the next assistants and secretaries. It´s very big, it has 5 bedrooms, a kitchen, another center room, and 4.5 bathrooms. It´s pretty great! Also, Elder C, my old companion, will be the next Assistant to the President. He´ll be great!
G. was baptized this weekend, he´s a fantastic young man, he´s about 17 years old, and has a strong testimony of the gospel. He says that he was deeply touched by the plan of salvation, and he has a testimony of the book of Mormon. If he continues firm, he´ll be a great missionary! Several of our other investigators will be baptized this next transfer. We currently have 5 investigators with baptismal dates, so I´m very excited to see how they progress in the next few weeks! When we got here in this area, there wasn´t anything. There weren´t investigators, addresses, people with baptismal dates, nothing. We´ve really turned things around this transfer. Now we have 8 progressing investigators, and 5 have baptismal dates during the next several weeks. The Lord has helped us tremendously!
During my mission I´ve gone from believing to knowing that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I´ve gained a far more personal testimony of the power of the atonement, the reality of the Lord´s sacrifice, and the eternal value of what He has done. My gratitude for Him is so much greater now, and I can testify without hesitation of the healing and enabling power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
The mission´s a tough experience, but all of the hardships seem to fall into the category of overcoming myself. This is also a good description of discipleship, turning from doing our will to doing the will of God. This is something that I´m still struggling with, but I´m sure that in the coming years and decades the Lord will continue to help me with this as He has up till now.
I love you all a ton! Thank you so much for all of your support! I´m very excited to see each of you on Friday.I love you all!
