Well I am now going to be in this area for 6 months, but I love it! It’s big and there is a lot of work to do here. It’s been really fun to meet all the members and get to know them. I have learned so much in this area – it’s called Ixtepec Centro – I love it here!
Right now feel like the Lord is stretching me. A lot of times in the mission you don’t feel ready for things and you just have to rely completely on the Lord. I have felt the power of prayer and the comfort the scriptures bring to me when I don’t think I can do something. But I just have to make sure I am obedient and doing everything with an eye single to the glory of God. Also, it is super important to be positive all the time. The Spirit cannot be with someone who is thinking or talking negatively. You always have to be positive, or in gospel terms – have faith. Faith always points to the future and in the last conference some one said, “the Kingdom of Heaven is not fit for those who dwell in the past.” We need to be filled with faith and a bright hope for the future.
I love the Lord and am thankful to be involved in His work. The power of the Atonement is real and changes people. Use it as much as you can!
Love you all! Keep reading and going to the temple.
