Well this has been a good week. It´s always a little rocky at start of a new transfer getting to know your new companion, but luckily mine is awesome. Hermana Binks is super sweet. She is from the US and is really excited to be here. She speaks really well, way better than I remember speaking. I don´t know maybe it was the same, but you just feel like you don´t know anything. She understands a lot though and I can tell that this is going to be a great transfer. We have plans to go to the Japanese gardens with our district today so that should be fun, nice to see some sort of nature here in the city :)
Thanks so much for all of your emails today! I am really feeling the love, nice to know that people still remember over there. Brother Bingham thanks for the photos, they are great, and I can´t believe how grown up all of the young men are! Its´s amazing how much people can change in just a year.
Lissy, super excited for you! I remember that feeling, just waiting until the mail comes. It´s a killer, but then it comes and I had to wait another 3 months to leave, so if nothing else you´ll learn some patience :) I am excited to here where you go.
Christine, wow Disneyland. That´s awesome. Thanks for the up dates, I was just talking about you last night and our opinions of the twilight movies. Jac I hope everything goes well with the move. Thanks Dad, Brother Chatt, Matt C. and Aunt Janie for your letters.
AS for me here, well things are pretty tranquilo (calm). We had a really great lesson yesterday with an investigator. Well she´s been an investigator for a while and she come to church every week. She really likes it, but when I brought up the whole topic of baptism she just kept saying that she has a lot of fear. Well we got to talking and turns out that she isn´t keeping a few commandments and has fear that she won´t be able too. Okay, so we made some good goals to help her out with that. It truly is amazing how Satan gets his grip on us and will use every way he can to keep us down. We have just got to find the strength to break free. Sometimes it is difficult and it starts a little by little doing the things that the lord asks us. He knows that it is by doing these things that the powers of Satan can be shaken and that´s the whole reason that we have to do them in the first place. Just something I´d been thinking about this week.
So it´s super cool that you are all part of this test/launch of I am a Mormon. I hope it fun and I know it´s an inspired program. I have seen a few of the clips on Mormon.org and they are really interesting. There is such a great spirit that one can feel from them. Okay
don´t have too much more to say. Love you all tons!
