I am doing quite well today, and
I enjoy my new companion. He's 27, from New Zealand, and has a desire to make
an impact in this area. We
were able to get in touch with T, and he said he's come to church this
upcoming Sunday so we are going to hold him to that. We need to see him
this week though or else I feel that will fall through as well. We
gave a Book of Mormon to S and committed him to read it. He's willing to
learn and wants truth so we testified that he could know that this church
has great truth and that he could know from reading the Book of Mormon. For
M, we see her regularly, but she needs help getting the desire to
come to church. We'll be teaching her about it in our next visit.
I am really enjoying riding the
bikes around because now we can do much more and go greater distances. And
it does get far easier the more you do it. And I love how now we look like
the iconic image of missionaries: young men in shirts and ties on bikes.
But the work is going well. We really want to do more finding because Elder
Pearson of the Area Presidency said there were many to find. And so that's
our goal for this transfer.
And this past week was really good because we were able
to teach a lot of lessons, around 13, when the week before was 3. We were
just really focusing on getting lessons, and it worked quite well.
I am loving the mission and boy are there a lot of
things to learn but it is coming along and I am feeling ever so privileged
to be here. You are an amazing mother and I love being your son. I will
continue to work and to even work harder to make you proud and the Lord.
Love you always.
