First of all, I want to thank the
Carnegie Primary for sending me a Christmas gift! I included a picture of
Just a couple different things from the week:
This week and last I was asked to play the piano during Sacrament Meeting.
There was a young woman in the ward doing it, but they asked me to do it
now. It’s been alright. Luckily the music is basically all the same in
Spanish, even though the words aren’t.
Yesterday, my companion and I gave talks in Sacrament Meeting. He spoke
about the Restoration. I spoke on the Book of Mormon. I think both talks
went alright. They weren’t very long because there wasn’t much time left
when we started our talks.
We were doing a service with an investigator and afterwards a member gave
us a liter of vanilla ice cream. We ate the whole thing, after eating a
huge lunch. It was delicious.
I’ve been realizing even more this week how important the Lord is in this
work. I’m still learning new things as a missionary. I’m learning how to
teach better, how to ask better questions, how to help the investigators
recognize an answer from God, etc. I’m wishing that I had known all these
things earlier in my mission. But even though I didn’t know them, the Lord
has given me success. He has helped me and made up for my imperfections. I
know that without Him, I couldn’t do this work. He does everything. I’m
just a small, little Elder trying not to mess up. And even when I do, He
fixes it, tells me to learn from the mistake and to keep going. His love
and patience is infinite. And I am so grateful for that.
Have a great week, World!
