January 20, 2014

So nice to hear that everyone is doin well. It makes me so happy to see that you guys are all receiving blessings from my service... I don't mean to say that in a boasting way, but I think we can all see, and our testimonies have all grown, that this really is the Lord's work and that this is what every worthy and of-age young man should be doing. I love my mission... It's super hard at times, and even though I don't have tons of time in the mission, I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
This week was a good week! Pretty normal.... the area is getting better. We're starting to see improvements. Little by little, but we're getting there. I mentioned a little about our "golden investigator" Irma last week, right? This week we've really seen with her the truth of the scripture in Ether 12:6 that "you receive no testimony until after the trial of your faith." And gooooood night is her faith being tried! Haha. First off, early in the week we had an appointment with her. We went, but she couldn't receive us because her father-in-law, who she lives with, is Catholic and won't let her talk to us in his house. So we have to find a new place to teach her. The next day, we went by to visit her on our way to a different appointment, and she was in tears. She told us that her daughter had packed her bags and ran away and that she had no idea where she went. And THEN, the NEXT day... we passed by to visit her again on our way to another appointment. And we found out that her 8 year old son had been hit by a car that evening. Luckily, her son ended up not having any major injuries, but,man, talk about a trial of faith!! My testimony has grown immensely as she continues to tell us how she knows that whatever happens, if she keeps her trust in God, everything will be alright. Such a simple testimony, but with such profound significance to her, and to anyone who truly believes that. She's such a great example to me and I'm so glad that the Lord put her in our path and has given us the oppurtunity to teach her.
The truck looks way sweet Dad!! What did you do with the old one? And is there really that much snow at our house right now?? You have no idea how much I miss the snow. What's the news with Lindsey and her boyfriend/grad school? How's lone peak basketball doin? Who's going to the Super Bowl? Whats goin on with BYU basketball? Oh and p.s. the mission that Alena Neves is going to is the same mission as Riley. Ayways, I await those answers patiently... This is stuff I NEED to know.
 But anyways... I hope you all have a great week! Love you all soooooo so much!! :)
