I am working well with my comp. But I am still having a hard time with comparing myself to others. That is one of the worst things to do as a missionary. Sometimes I think that the members like my comp better than me but it doesn’t matter because to have success in the mission for me is between me and the Lord and no one else. I am trying really hard not to compare myself to other missionaries and just devote myself to the work. Also my comp keeps telling me to calm down and not be so mad all the time. But I don’t feel mad and I don’t get mad at him so I don’t know what he is talking about. He also gets mad at me if I don’t understand something in Spanish and says I never listen except for the things I want to listen to in Spanish. This bugs me because I am trying so hard to learn the language and I always speak Spanish. I will just try to keep improving.
I got my Easter package and for about two days I was the best missionary in the pension so that was pretty cool. Thanks for the help. I knew that I could buy friends!! no just kidding… but the other missionaries were really happy to share the candy and most of it is already gone so we won’t have much for actual Easter, But thanks a lot for that.
The work here is good, but Emmurson and Paula our best and strongest investigators and they didn’t come to church this week. We are changing their baptism date to a little bit later. It is better this way because we don’t want to just baptize them and then have them leave the Church. I think it is so important to really work with the people and help them feel the spirit because that is the only thing that will change their hearts. My words are nothing. but if the Lord could work through me that could mean everything. I love the mission and hope I can continue to help people and improve my ability to teach with the spirit. Many times I feel inadequate to do this work. I don’t feel like I know anything and I definitely cant teach very well especially in Spanish. But the Lord said he calls the weak to preach is word. I really just want to work for the Lord and do the best I can during my mission. I know if I do all I can that the Lord will accept my efforts. I am thankful for the love and grace He has for usf. 2 Nephi 25:23
I feel like I should write more but there really isn’t that much to write. We walk almost all day in the streets talking with people. My fingernail fell off and I am trying really hard to choose to be happier enjoy the mission. Gram sent me a letter and said that Happiness is a choice not a condition. Sometimes I don’t feel happy in the mission, I feel stressed to work with my comp and because I am in a hard area. But seriously the people I know and the experiences I have had I feel like I should always be happy because it is incredible here in
. I am
going to be Happier!! I only have two years to serve the Lord full time Chile
Thanks for all your letters I love to read them and I am so thankful I have a family that Supports me so much!
Paz y Amor
