I hope you all had a great week! Thanks for sending me
all thos pictures. I loved the ones Marcie sent, i´m glad to know that
the family is doing good. Jackson looks like a stud and sounds like
slater is doing great in lacross. I´m pretty sure there´s not a person
here who knows what lacross is.. And it looks like Mckell had a great
time on her trip! So i still haven´t recieved the package yet but it
sounds like my zone leaders have it, it´s just a matter of time until we
have the zone meeting. It also sounds like i recieved a few letters!
Thanks to those who sent them, it meens a lot. Mother, i´d love to get
the addresses of my friends so that i can write them if it´s possible.
!Zaz, un año! I seriously can´t believe it, it definately doesn´t
feel like i´ve already been gone for a year. The truth, it´s a little
sad. I still have SOO much i want to learn! I know that i´ll never stop
progressing as a missionary and i´ll probably never arrive to be the
missionary i´m striving to become, but i hope i can take advantage of
this year that i have left and not take a single moment for granted. I´m
in the process of making some goals for the next year. I wanted to make
goals in the begginning of my mission but i really had no clue where to
start. I want to be able to look back on my mission with zero regrets
and be able to say that i litterally gave everything i had. And don´t
worry mom, i plan on having fun as well.
We had a pretty awesome experience last night. We were trying to
find the house of a less active member and while asking a señora if she
knew the member we were looking for we felt the impression to ask if we
could share a message with her. The señora was in the middle of hand
scrubbing her clothes, which is a long process, but she let us in
anyways. She started telling us about she´s had a rough couple weeks.
Her cousin has brain cancer and her husband left her. We shared a
scripture that i love, Romana 8:18. It says that the suffring we´ll have
here is not worthy to be compared to the glory which we be revealed in
us. We testified that we know we´ll be able to return to the presense of
God and live in eternal happiness shared that sometimes we can´t
comprehend why we have such tough trials here, but that through Christ
we can always find joy. She started crying, but i know it was the spirit
testifying to her that everything we shared was true. I hope i can keep
have experiences like that every day of my mission!
Yesterday A and J passed the sacrament together. I´m so
proud of them! It feels great to see my converts using the preisthood.
Well i love you all! Have a great week, Elder Mecham
