August 5, 2013

Hola! Everything here is going pretty well. Tomorrow is changes, and I'm getting changed again haha. I'm going to stay in the same zone though. Elder Stevens is going to train. This week went pretty well. We worked really hard and taught pretty well and found some new people. The only bad part was Sunday. We had 22 people commited to going to church. On Sunday morning we passed by for several people and called some people the night before to remind them, but only 2 people went. It was pretty frustrating, but we'll keep working and seeing what else we can do tp help people go to church. Other than that the week went really well. This morning we got up early and washed our clothes and then we went to Walmart to buy groceries and to KFC to eat lunch. It was pretty fun. I'm really not looking forward to packing again though haha. Tell Kyle to take advantage of the time that he has left to study the scriptures and prepare to go out in the field. Tell him to study Preach My Gospel as well. The more prepared he is, the better he will be able to serve the Lord. I'm looking right now at the admission requirements for the Music Education major, and I need 3 letters of recommendation. Could you please get them for me. Lately, I've been studying Jesus the Christ. It is an amazing book that really has helped me to comprehend the ministry of the Lord. I've been realizing that almost all of the problems that he had teaching the people of in Isreal are the same problems that we face as missionaries today. Also I've realized that I still have a lot of improving that I have to do before I can become as my Father is. I know that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and that only through him and his atonement can I become better. I am so grateful for the blessings that I recieve every day, even though I don't deserve them and I know that God loves me and each of His children. I wish that everyone could feel and understand that simple fact, and my job here is to help them to do that haha. I hope you have a fantastic week. I love you. :) Elder Janda
