Mexico Pachuca - Week 75 - April 20, 2015

(Excerpts from his email)

hey sounds good. its been another tough week but i think i am understanding things a little better. we had a bunch of lessons this week and we have been working super hard, harder than ever in my whole mission and we had no one in church on Sunday. it was pretty disappointing but i have felt more than ever i have to just go to work. work and work and work some more and maybe love a little more too hah.

M: So what kind of things are you understanding better? 

idk i was just in the district class this Wednesday and i just felt stop complaining stop making excuses and go to work. haha cause i honestly didn’t want to come to Pachuca again haha. and this area hasn’t been super good for a while but i just felt more than ever the impression like stop being a baby and do what you have to do. 

M: Yes, I guess you and I are having the same impressions.  It just lets me know that the Lord is so aware of us, He is allowing us to learn the same lessons at the same time to help each other through.  But yes, that is the same impression I got, we have to just stop, stop complaining, stop whining and do what we are asked to do.  Sometimes it is not easy, sometimes it doesn't even make sense to us, but, it is what someone is asking us to do and so we can choose to accept it and do it happily or we can be mad and frustrated.  The way we choose to do things affects those around us. I always hear it is hard to not smile when someone is smiling at you.  So do it with a smile and a passion for the gospel and people will have no choice but be drawn to you and the spirit that you bring.  It's not easy, i have to stop myself, sometimes more than once in a day and tell myself handle it better. Keep working son, the Lord knows your needs and He will bless you when the time is right.  It kind of sounds like your last two areas anyway, where you had to do a lot of work in the beginning.

EP: ya that’s what i keep telling myself. It’s like where i was last time. i got there with nothing and had to start all over again so its just something i gotta do. but i got the boxes today haha. there was three. two from you and one from the primary. the ties are awesome thank you.

M: A story please

EP: nah i really don’t know. we taught a bunch of people. we found a bunch of new people but nothing super crazy. nothing interesting haha.

M: Ok, well then you can always bear your testimony.

EP: pues se que esta es la iglesia verdadera y este es la obra del Señor. No esta fácil y nunca he sentido tan cansado en toda mi vida pero nunca he sido tan bendecido. Realmente no somos nada. El Padre es quien hace todo nada mas podemos ser instrumentos en sus manos y ayudar en lo que el tiene preparado. Amo esta obra. No hay nada mejor o mas importante que la obra misional. Tenemos la oportunidad de ayudar a otras personas llegar al reino de nuestro Padre y tener una familia eterna. Hoy en la mañana termine el libro de mormón otra vez en la misión. Se que es verdad y podemos encontrar la guía y las respuestas que necesitamos por cualquier cosa en nuestras vidas. Estoy muy agradecido por la oportunidad que mi Padre Celestial me ha dado de servir como uno de sus misioneros. La misión ha cambiado mi vida. Estoy muy agradecido por mi familia mis amigos y todos de mi familia de la iglesia. He podido aprender mucho de cada uno de ustedes. Son ejemplos para mi y les agradezco mucho. Se que este es el camino correcto por cada uno de nosotros. El único camino para tener una felicidad eterna. Les invito a buscarlo, a seguirlo, y hacer todas las cosas necesarias de ser fieles a este camino por que se que encontrarán todo lo que necesitan y quieren. Les amo con todo mi corazón. Gracias por todo lo que han hecho y hacen por mi. Gracias por todas sus oraciones.

M: Awesome.

So other than the work being hard, you good son?

EP: ya i am good. tired but good. and just hoping for a little more luck haha. . we just need to keep working. well I gotta go. love you guys. have a great week.
