Putting My Talents To Work For The Lord !

 So this week was a great week too! But before I start telling you about some of the things that happened I forgot last time in my letter to ask Dad for some BBQ sauce, because he asked if I want some and YES I DO WANT SOME! I'll get people hooked on it here and then you have some more customers to sell the sauce too! Also I am on my last box of contacts so it should last 3 more months but just thought I would let you know.
 Ok so this week was really interesting, on Wednesday and Thursday Elder Müller had leadership training so I went on splits with Daniel Teixeira on Wednesday and then with Elder Williams on Thursday. It was really cool to go on splits with Daniel because he is preparing to serve his mission and he usually comes over once a week and does his morning studies with us, I think that's so awesome! I wish I did that when I was at home with the missionaries because I would have been so much more prepared, which is always good to be more prepared. But anyway I got to go on splits with Daniel on Wednesday and we visited Phil Hurt who is a very nice man and he has been investigating the church for quite some time, but then Delta was closed, and when it reopened the missionaries never went back and started to teach him. So when Elder Müller and I went there a few weeks ago he was really happy to see us. So when Daniel and I went over we taught him the Atonement of Jesus Christ, the spirit was really strong there and then I really loved the way that Daniel bore his testimony of prayer because it was so simply but true. So on Thursday I went on splits with Elder Williams, and I don't know how he found out but he found out that I went to school for film, so he asked me if I wanted to make a 15 mins video on using the new mormon.org

 I just thought that was really funny because throughout the week Elder Müller and I have been teaching member families about using their talents, and then out of nowhere I get this chance to use my talents that I gained at school. So Elder Williams and I started working on it and we pretty much have all the planning part done, so now the next step we need to take is all the filming and then just the editing, the video is going to be sent to all the stake and ward leaders as a training video on how to get members to create their own profile on mormon.org. So that was fun but i was really happy to get back to Delta and get back to work.

 On Thursday night we were coming home from an appointment, and we were waiting at the bus stop, in our appointment before a member gave us a frozen pizza to take home and we were planning on eating it the next day! So the bus stops to pick us up and this guy walks off the bus and asks me if that's food that I have. I said yeah it's a pizza, then he said ohhhhh then give it to me. I didn't even hesitate I was just like okay! I gave it to him and the look on his face was just priceless he was in total shock! I don't think that he thought I was going to give him the pizza but I just felt that he really needed that pizza more than Elder Müller and I did. So he said thank you and walked away with it, I got on the bus and I just felt really good inside and happy, just over something simple like that it was pretty funny too.

 This week we had a lesson with Christine who is a friend of the Leano family, and she had no religious background at all, so we taught he about God and how he is our loving Heavenly Father. It really clicked to me later that night that there are so many people in the world who still have no idea who God is and that's why it's so important for us to do what we do as missionaries, because it is the knowledge about Heavenly Father and his plan that gives us hope faith and happiness. I am so grateful for the plan of salvation and the knowledge is brings that our families can be together forever! So Christine is really awesome and she is picking up on all the principles that we teach her. I'm so excited to see her gain a testimony!

 Next week is transfers again, so we'll see if I get transferred or not I think I might be transferred because I'm getting pretty comfortable here but Elder Müller thinks I will stay so we'll just have to wait and see.

 So yup that's it hope everyone has a good week! Miss you all lots

 Elder Kameron Lahache! :)
