Mexico Pachuca - Week 78 - May 11, 2015

(Excerpts from his email)

haha thanks mom and dad. i know i am trying to look for the little things that we do to help people and i hope that i can make a difference in these peoples lives even if i don’t see the results, but we are working on it. i re-read Mosiah and my patriarchal blessing this morning haha. i liked Mosiah 23:10 its alma saying it was hard, he had to pay his dues but he’s happy he was able to become an instrument in the hands of the Lord so hopefully i will be able to say something like that soon haha. also i reread that part of my blessing and i wrote it in my agenda for the next 6 weeks to hopefully help me out. thanks for everything um my companion has changes so he’s going tomorrow and i will have a new companion. 

M: Yes, sometimes re-reading things will help with understanding and we learn something new.  I thought it was very interesting how your blessing spoke directly to your struggles.

well today was pretty cool we had to wait for changes so we left and went to eat with a member which we probably shouldn’t have done hahah but anyways we go and the hermana was like hey elders i need you to go and talk to my granddaughter and get her ready for her baptism. She was like ya i talked to her and told her she has to go to church every week and she has to prepare her self and everything. we were just like um ok. sounds good hermana. 

M: is this a child of record or a convert? Did you talk to her? 

EP: she’s the granddaughter of some converts but she’s been listening to the missionaries and just never got baptized. we are gonna talk to her at 5

M: See there is already some light! I'm glad that you went to see the sister.  So you okay son?

EP: ya I’m good mom. just keep on chugging along haha. 

M: That's all we can ask for or do.  We will continue to pray for you and for your learning and growth.  I know that with the bad and the frustrating the good and the rewards are so much more appreciated than if it was easy.   The hard and the difficult shape us depending on how we live through them, we can become better and more like Christ or move farther away, it really truly is our choice.  When we look at it that way, or at least for me, I try to handle it better, when we really want to be more like Christ, we really try to be better and handle the junk better.

EP: well gotta go love you guys. have a great week.
