But, I hope that everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving surrounded by their loved ones, remembering how much we truly have. The Lord sure blesses us! I always take what I have for granted but I am grateful for the opportunity I had to remember what I do have this past week.
The last few weeks I have received several letters by mail from President Wixom. I cannot say how grateful I am for those letters and thoughts! They have been just what I needed a time or two. And how sweet of him to think of me. Thank you President Wixom! You are always so thoughtful!
Well, we are still doing a whole lot of contacting as far as the work goes and I as always I still get frustrated far too easily all the time but things are good. As of right now I am just trying my best and know that the Lord has promised to make up for the rest. We still have Ayulen however :). She is our one progressing investigator who has a baptismal date set for later this month (wow, I forget that its December! How weird is that!) She is so great! As I said before, she is so grateful for the atonement in her life and has turned a new page. It makes me so happy to know that my companion and I were able to be the messengers to bring her the great news and joy she has in her life. Yay for missionary work! Although it can be stressful those sweet moments are ever so sweet. I am so grateful for Heavenly Father and the work He is helping me do. And I know that He is listening to my pathetic prayers and helping me along. I need to rely on Him more all the time but I know He loves all of His children. A few times this week I have been privileged to feel the love He has for some of His children and it has really struck me. I think of the love I have for my mom and that I am pretty sure she returns for me. Then I think that the Lord has that same love, even greater, for everyone of His children even when they reject Him and it makes me SO grateful. I love Him very much and am so grateful for the Savior Jesus Christ.
All in all, I know I am probably a very poor missionary but I feel blessed to have been called to this work. Happy December everybody! I love you all!
