August 1, 2016

Hello Everyone! Elder Winsor went the way of all the missionaries and returned home triumphant. My new companion, Elder Sorenson, and I are doing awesome, even though this last week was a lot of getting used to the area and learning it since he's brand new to the area and I've only been here 6 weeks. I definitely learned the area more this week than any other so far. Funny how in both of my areas, my first companion leaves me after 6 weeks and all of a sudden I'm the one that knows the area best...

Elder Sorenson's a stud! He's always super calm and collected, I don't think it's possible for him to get angry! Not that I'm going to test the limits or anything... 

Elder Stotts and Elder Sorenson

We were able to meet with Chris, an investigator whom I had met, but never taught. He has Cerebral palsy, so he can't use his left side very well at all. This was the main subject of our lesson, he was upset at God for not only letting him be born with it, but also letting it get worse. We taught him that the book of Mormon was a Book of answers. And lo and behold he flipped open to the story of Limhi and his people. They were going through a severe challenge just like he was, He was able to learn that he was to be patient in his trials, just like they were (eventually). 

Miracles like this happen all day every day as a missionary. I encourage all who are thinking about going to go. It will be the most difficult 18 months to 2 years of your life, but you will learn more during those 18 months or 2 years than your entire life up to that point. I've only been out about 6 months, but I've already seen that happen to me. I love all of you, I know that Jesus Christ Lives, He is very involved in this work. If you have any questions about how to be a better member missionary: Ask the Missionaries! They can help you!

Stay righteous Y'all!!
