I didn't even really realize that it was Valentines day yesterday. Its really sad, but almost every holiday or any event is just an excuse to drink here. There are so many great, amazing, sincere people here. But there are also many who don't appreciate the greatness of the lives that God has given us. Its something that makes my calling harder, but at the same time even more necessary.
My new companion Elder Carter is awesome. We are very similar, we started out working really hard this week and we have seen quite a few miracles, and we have met some great investigators with potential to progress. We taught our first zone meeting together on Thursday, just two days days after we were put together. We had to trust a lot in the spirit to guide our words and help them motivate the elders in our zone. The whole focus was on Jesus Christ. We broke it up in to parts, the first part was a training on how we can teach more like Jesus Christ, and the importance it is to testify of him in every single lesson. Then in the second part we focused on the Atonement, and how it can really carry us in our missions. We based it on a talk by David A. Bednar that Sister Jackman sent me almost a year ago that talks about the redeeming power of the Atonement, and also the enabling power of the Atonement. It really did turn out perfect and we felt the spirit very strongly.
Thanks for all of the great news! I love you guys so much and I am always so happy to see all of the great experiences, and all of the success that you are achieving. As we put Jesus Christ at the center of our lives we'll see how every thing else finds its perfect place, and others that we don't need will eventually fall out of our lives completely. Trust in him, and have even MORE faith!
