Cannon Ball Missionary

OK, These past couple weeks have been really awesome. I've been training a new missionary. His name is Elder Savage, he's from Delaware. He's super cool. He's alot more focused then I was when I first started the mission. I've really learned alot from him. He just barely got out of the MTC like 2 weeks ago and is already diving head first into the field. I remember when I first started I was so scared to do anything. All I did was test the water with my big toe. But my companion is cannon balling his way in! It's really awesome to see him grow as a missionary so quick. One thing I've definitely learned as a missionary is that time is essential in everything! Were always using our time, and if we're not, WE SHOULD BE! Time is progress, and progress consists of failure and success! We as people should always be progressing in life. That's why the Savior gave his life for US! So we can PROGRESS! Of course we're going to make bad decisions, We're human. But we have the choice to learn from our mistakes and repent, or suffer. ... But the choices we make in life really DO make us the person we are. I know this church is true, I know the power of God was restored through Joseph Smith, and that people and families can have eternal happiness together FOREVER!!! Love you guys SO MUCH! Have an awesome week.

Holes in my shoes

Hey Fam. Looks like you guys are doing good. That`s so cool to hear about the Temple in Payson!!! That is going to be SO cool. I`m totally going there like every week when I get back! The mission is going really good. I think it`s because I`m finally getting used to the language. I can speak and understand what they are saying like cake. It`s actually really cool to step back and think 12 months ago I didn`t know a thing about spanish. Now it`s like I`ve been speaking spanish my whole life. Ok, I`m not THAT good at it, but pretty close. We have a guy right now who is really interested in the church. He said " I don`t get it, you guys are the only ones called `The Church of Jesus Christ`, shouldn`t that be what all the churches are called?" Then we had to explain The Restoration and The Plan of Salvation and The Gospel of Jesus Christ all in one! It was long, but he totally has a strong goal to get baptized the 21st of Febuary! Hopefully he goes through with it. Well, other then that I`m pretty much out of things. My companion goes home in a week! He`s super excited and super sad at the same time. I feel for him. Both pairs of my shoes have holes in them! HAHA! We walk SO MUCH! Ok, love ya tons. Have an awesome week. Love your Elder.
