Opening an area is one of the harsdest things I've had to do here on my mission but it's also one of the best experiences to learn and grow. Our first 3 days this week we taught a total of 4 lessons...it was rough, more for Elder Moraes than for me because it was only his 3rd week in the field. But we learned and grew together and fasted together to see results. At the end of the week, we ended up finding some real cool people and we hit our goals for contacts and new investigators. This week we had lots of people to visit and we're excited to work. Really, that was our week. We walked and walked and walked and hit door after door after door etc... haha I'm grateful for the testimony of the gospel that I have and I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and gives and we are here to grow and learn so that we can become like Him. I know that this church is true and that it's a blessing to be able to share this gospel and happiness with other people. In the name of Jesus Cristo, Amen.
PS: Listen to the conference talk about finding the Amulek's in your ward and go find them! https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2016/10/learn-from-alma-and-amulek?lang=eng
Love you all! Elder Craig:)
A little part of Cache's letter to his dad...But My week was a test, more for me as a trainer than as a missionary. I want to be a good example of a successful missionary for Elder Moraes but I can't make people get baptized haha. But I'm trying to use it as an experience to teach him that it's not always sunshine and rainbows. -- But I'm doing good, I love having the Spirit as a constant companion and I love the desire to learn that I have, something that wasn't there before. When I get back, I want to ... ahhh not sure how to say it in English, haha, but I want all the books that the church has to offer! Thanks for the pics and the emails. I really appreciate it:) Also thanks for the prayers, I really can feel it! I Love you and the prayers go your way as well!
Bom trabalho este semana!
