14 Months serving the Lord!
Not a whole lot of things going on. we've been working hard. trying to
teach. trying to save. we've been working a lot with the other members
of our zone to help them have a baptism in september.. as a zone, we are
going to have 5 baptisms this weekend. its awesome!!! so i'd say things
are going well. on monday, Elder Bruce A Carlson of the 2nd quorum of
the 70 came to speak to the mission. it was awesome. he gave us a lot of
insight on how we should measure success. and how we should measure
ourselves. and it was super cool, because before the conference started,
all the zone leaders got to go into a meeting with him and the mission
president so he could talk to us as leaders. and then we got to go in
again to talk to him as the leaders of the mission. i loved it.
something interesting that he said was that they don't send us on
missions to baptize everyone.. they send us on missions to mold us into
worthy disciples of Christ, and to help us develop habits that will make
us good fathers/husbands/mothers/wives. and that the baptizing is what
comes along with it. i had thought about that before, but i had it the
other way around. but that was the first time i've heard a general
authority say it. but it was a really cool experience. being a leader in
the mission definitely has it's perks! today, we are going to the zoo
as a zone because its our last p-day before transfers. so it should be
fun, i hope. i love you all. everyone, be healthy. be smart. look both
ways before you cross the street. time to go ! byeeee!
