I don´t have much time today, sorry. We are actually in our Bishop´s
almacen (a little shop that they have here) and he has one computer.
So my companion and I have to take turns. We can´t go to a normal
cyber to use the computers because today is a holiday here.
This last week was interesting. We had very few lessons, but the one´s
we had were awesome! We watched a whole grip of movies this week. On
monday, for a noche de hogar (family night), we watched finding faith
in Christ. Then we watched the Restoration movie twice with different
investigators. Then we had an activity on Saturday night where we
watched the Testaments. Every time we finish a movie, at least one
person is all teared up, and we always have little testimony meetings
right after. With one of the times we watched the Restoration, we had
to do it in the Church because they don´t have a DVD player. So we
gave them a tour first, and when we showed them the Baptismal Font,
Ezequiel (9 yrs old) says, it would be very nice to get baptized here
(his mom is an inactive member, so he knows about baptism. It was
awesome! We don´t want to put a date yet for his baptism because he
learns really slow, so we have to take our time with him.
Can someone tell Matthew that I never said I was born in Lanai. I
always said Lihue. Is it true that he is serving in Lihue right now?
What are the chances that one of my best friends would serve his
mission in my birthplace!
I want everyone to know that I have a testimony of this Gospel.
Especially Stacia and Shered. I am not perfect, and none of us are,
but this Gospel is. It is true, and the only way we can really have
true joy in this life and in the world to come. What I am doing right
now is difficult. Some days, when no one wants to listen, and our
appointments aren´t there, and we get home at night only having taught
one person, it is hard to keep your passion for this work. That is,
until I remember why I chose to come over 5,000 miles and give 2 years
of my life to try and share this message. Because it is TRUE. Christ
restored his church on the earth, and is the Living Head of that
church at this very moment. Through his atonement and teachings, we
can have eternal life with those we love most, our family. I know that
with all of my mind and heart.
I love you all so much! I love to hear from you all.
One more quick question. I was thinking the other day and I am not
sure where everyone is living, specifically Sheyene and Shered. Maybe
someone could answer that!
I am out of time now, like all the missionaries always say. But I
really do have to go.
Que tengan fe en Cristo siempre es mi deseo mas grande. Les amo muchísimo.
