Elder Olortegui

2017? ...Loco!

¡Hola Familia y Amigos! ¡Que tal! ¿Como andan?

Elder Bigley aqui, escibiendo a todos de ustedes con la calor de Lavalle, Argentina!

...Which basically means Hi, and Lavalle (northern region of the Mendoza Mission territory) is hot!

Another week in the field, and it's been quite a remarkable one. Seeing the hand of God in everything. ...Investigators, Families, Members, Coincidences, Blessings large and small, times of laughter and joy, it's been an awesome week.

Elder Olortegui and I enjoy listening to conference talks in our spare time and are particularly fond of Elder Holland. Though normally we listen to conference talks, this week we listened to a talk he gave at a BYU devotional that was truly remarkable (I'll have to locate the entirety of it, but one part in particular stood out to me)...
In Phillipians, Paul says the following: "This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus"

As Elder Holland put it, Faith is always pointed toward the future. Paul knows that the best is yet to come-- that it's out there, in the future-- up ahead. Wherever heaven is taking us. I highly encourage each of you to read or better yet listen to this talk. It's truly quite remarkable.
Aha! Found it! here's the link for your viewing / listening pleasure;

May you all have the best of weeks this week! God keep you in this new year!

Michael
