Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

August 10, 2015

I think mom does have a spare car, but I'm going to be looking for a manual one when I come home. I hate auto! I have literally been dreaming of driving a manual again. I know mom did set me up for some doctors appointments those first couple of days.

Mission 101...

This week was my 101st week here in the field, it's crazy how time just passes as a dream (Jacob 7:26) but it's been a dream that I pray never fades away. 

We had a great zone training this past week, it was the last on I had to plan, whooo! I don't have to stress over that anymore :) I have had to do more meetings than we usually have to, but it was always a good learning experience to plan them and run them. Elder Hiatt and I gave a training on being wolves! There was this video we showed of how when they reintroduced wolves into Yellowstone national park, there began to be small changes in the way things were. But how after a long while there start large changes and in the end even the rivers changed because of them. We tied it into the missionaries of how they like these wolves have the potential to accomplish things they never even imagined. We were worried about not having enough material to speak for 20 minuets, but we ended up having enough to speak for 40 minuets! Which was good and bad, because we were not able to hear the last training that was planned. But all in all the meeting went very well.

The rest of the week was spent focusing on Regina and preparing her for baptism. We were able to visit with her 4 times this week. The bishop was able to go with us to one of the lessons and that was great! He had been out of town for two weeks and had yet to meet her. Then the following day we introduced her to president bennion. He lived in the same part of California that she did. She is so prepared to hear the gospel,Moshe has made changes in a matter of days that she had not been able to do in the space of months. The Lord has given her so much strength to do what is right and be ready. It will be awesome to see her enter in the waters of baptism my last weekend in the mission!

I was able to go on exchange as well with the other Spanish elders. It was a different type of exchange than usual. My companion went with the other Grayson elders and I joined the Spanish companionship. So we were in a trio for the day. It was really fun, the elders are very hard working and get along great. We were able to eat dinner at one of my favorite members homes, the lupercios. It was great to be able to see them and invite them to the fireside farewell we do out here. 

I'm excited to go really hard this last week and do all that I can to get as many people being taught here, so the next elder has stuff to do. I'm also going to take advantage of the phrase     " it's my last Sunday, you have to come to church!" To be able to get the max amount of people there at church with me. :)
