Missionaries Do The Greatest Work And ALL Mankind Benefits

Hello everyone!

 I am so humbled and grateful to be a missionary! This is the greatest work on earth and mom reading about all the exciting things going on at home really makes me happy. Heavenly Father truly does love all of us and he truly does prepare people to receive this wonderful messages that we have. I am very grateful that Elder Larsen and I get to devout all out time to serving our Heavenly Father, it's such a blessing! My joy is full when I see my brothers and sisters coming closer to our Heavenly Father. It amazes me continually of the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to have the fullness of the Gospel! We understand who our Heavenly Father is! We know that through the Atonement of Christ, all men WILL live again and we can be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father. The cool thing is this is what we tell people all day everyday!

 Sounds like everyone back home is having a blast, I'm very glad to hear that Ma is doing well. Sounds like missionary work is exploding over there, and missionary work continues to explode in Prince George too! I have a testimony that as we are diligent, obedient and humble then Heavenly Father will bless us in all things.

 On Tuesday we had a chance to have a meeting with President Tilleman. I am so grateful that he is our mission President, he truly is a man of God. We felt the spirit really powerfully as we set goals for the mission. Our aim is to have 54 of our brothers and sister enter into the waters of baptism in June! I know that we can do it as we exercise faith and work as hard as we can! I remember feeling the spirit really powerfully bear witness to me that yes we can do this, then after my testimony of the Gospel was strengthened as President Tilleman bore his testimony. I am grateful that Heavenly Father blesses us with inspired leaders to help us fulfill our full potential! I am just full of faith and I will do anything that my Heavenly Father asks of me!

 We're scheduled to have Raquel Medina's baptism this upcoming weekend! Elder Larsen and I are excited for that. Brother Meisi is still awesome as ever! He's been so excited about the Gospel, he shares it with everyone! We actually found out that he gave out about 100 pamphlets to people about the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That's intense!

 We had a chance to meet with Cory this week. We've been meeting with him I would say for 5 weeks now. He has such a righteous heart, he wants to be baptized and right now we're working with him to overcome issues he has with the word of wisdom. As we've been meeting with him we've been able to see a change in his countenance, he's a happier brighter guy. What's really helping him is reading from the Book of Mormon and continuing to pray fro strength to resist temptation. It's awesome, people who truly humble themselves admit that they need to chance and seek help from people who care about them and their Heavenly Father really change! I know it's possible because of the Atonement, it allows all men to change and become better.

I forget who said it but I remember one of the general authorities said this about the Atonement; The Atonement is there to help bad me to become good, and good men to become better. It's true because I rely so much on the Atonement everyday and do my best to refine myself as a missionary. As I ask Heavenly Father for ways as to how I can improve he shows me. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father and the love he has for all of us.

 Also I had a chance to send a few pictures, hope you like them! Have a good week!

On The Road Again

Hello everyone!

 What a wonderful week it has been for Elder Larsen and myself. We were blessed both spiritually and temporally. This past weekend we were able to make a trip out to Valemount, it has been a while since we've been able to visit Valemount and the wonderful families there. As we were driving there and back we saw a total of 6 bears, 3 Moose and several deer, it was really cool. I never realized how big moose are, they're actually huge! We also had a chance to bring Josh with us. It was such a blessing to have him and for him to bear his testimony, he has come such a long way and ever since he was baptized last week he's been doing everything he could to have the spirit with him always.

 After his baptism last Sunday Elder Larsen and I were in an appointment and when we got out we noticed that we received a text from Josh and this is what it said. "Elders, I just want to thank you for being here for me in my greatest time of need, for being my stone of unwavering faith and dedication to the Lord. You two shall forever remain in my thoughts and in my prayers long after you have finished your missions and returned home to start families of you own. I feel complete now like there was a hole in my soul that could only be filled by bringing myself closer to the Lord. A hole that is now filled with the Spirit." As a read that text a scripture in Doctrine and Covenants came to my mind, it was the one that says that there are those who are kept from the truth only because they know not where to find. Josh was looking for the truth for a long time and he said that when he came to church that he felt the Spirit really powerfully. Heavenly Father has been preparing Josh, because he came to us already knowing how to recognize the Spirit in his life. I know that the Lord led him to us, I know that he answers the prayers of the righteous as we do all that we can to fulfill our prayers to him.

 We had a chance to meet the Medina family again, they're still as warm and as welcoming as they have always been. I am grateful that Heavenly Father has led us to them. We finished teaching Raquel the remainder of the lessons, she had her baptismal interview so now she is prepped and ready to be baptized! Omar had a provincial track tournament down in Burnaby this week, so he and Brother Medina left, which is why we brought Josh with us. It was a great experience, Valemount is still an awesome place! Is there any other registration that needs to get done for school?

 Today we are going to be heading down to Richmond around 4:30 and then we have meetings in Richmond all day tomorrow. Then on Thursday to Friday we are going to be going on exchange in Vanderhoof. Vanderhoof is a small town but it has two wards in it, we'd be walking around the
 streets and half the people there are members. It's a funny feeling.

 The Gospel of Jesus Christ is wonderful! How blessed we are to have modern Apostles and Prophets who stand as special witnesses of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the knowledge of the plan of salvation which we have, we know that our families can be together forever. We know that as we are obedient to the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel that we will return to live with our Heavenly Father. I am grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, which makes it possible for us to make our weaknesses strengths. I know that with the grace of Jesus Christ we beyond our own natural capacity! We have all this wonderful knowledge available to us!

 Missionary work is the best work! I am grateful for the opportunity that I've been blessed with to serve. I know that when we put Heavenly Father first in our lives he will take care of us.

 Have a great week everyone!
