Still Learning

April 26, 2014

Things are going well. I had a good week. I am still learning lots and I have decided to make these last 3 weeks the best in the mission. The office has been the hardest thing I’ve done in the mission, but it has taught me how be a better disciple of Jesus Christ. That is President Dibbs mission vision. That we all become more like Christ. And after a rough 2 transfers that is what really got me back into the game and got me going again. I wouldn’t say that I ever gave up, but I would say that the last 2 transfers really beat me. I kind of had to relearn a lot of things and I realized that I can’t do this alone. I thought I could, and then I got thrown in the office.  As I have said once and I will say it again, that this was the curve ball transfer. I was hitting home runs in Muggi├▓ like crazy and life was good! And I learned that I needed to be more humble. I’m glad it happened though.
We are starting to see some cool things happen in our work. We are seeing some really big changes in this 23 year old we are teaching who wants to be baptized, and also an inactive family who has 2 sons who are young kids but are not baptized. We are excited and are learning how to better manage our time in the office and outside the office. But we do our best and things seem to work out in the end. My new replacement is Anziano Stewart. He seems to be picking up really fast all the tasks here in the office. He is a fast learner and will do well here in the office.

I talked to Anziano Heaton the other day when he called the office. He seems to be doing really well and I think he turned out to be a fine trainee and missionary. He is in Verona and I told him to keep working hard. It makes me proud to see my son doing so well.  In other news my other comp Anziano Moore from Muggio is getting married. I will be there for his wedding in a few weeks I think. Well, that’s all I’ve got for this week. Have a good week!
