Here we are. The moment when there’s fewer days ahead and more behind. I’m not going to think about that though. It’s just another week in the mission and I’m going to keep working. The truth is the work here is getting harder and harder, the investigators have more and more problems, and they’re getting harder and harder to solve. Nevertheless, the Lord is on our side. I’m just going to keep putting more faith in Him and He’ll pick us up out of the mud.
My zone is now full of new life. With the exception of one elder from Cancún, I’m the oldest elder in the zone (counting time in the mission) and we’ve got the spirits high to find, teach, and baptize. We’re here to bring life to the city. Get ready to live, Clorinda!
Yesterday we had conference for all of the zone leaders again, and as always, it was thoroughly uplifting and deeply spiritual. I left with a greater sense of what it means to be a representative of Jesus Christ, and with desires to ensure that nothing I do gets in the way of the image I have to portray as His representative.
I love you all, you know it already, I’m not perfect, but I’m growing. As to my own strength I am nothing, but in the Lord, I am strong.
