Coming at ya live from the English School that is next door from our apartment that offers internet,
How is everyone?! I absolutely loved seeing the picture from Diem's baptism! Diem, congrats, you and the whole fam looked beautiful! I am so happy that you were able to have such a special day with all very big and very special family!
It sounds like summer is bumping for everyone and I cannot wait to hear about this DelTaco incident when I get home. I hope everyone keeps having a great summer with all vacations and fun activities coming up.
As always, the week was very good for Elder Griffeth and I. We were able to put in a lot of time this week finding throughout our whole area and through all ways possible. One way was through English Class. The Elders and Sister here in the city have been teaching English class on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays and it has been a huge blessing with finding new people to teach, integrating investigators, and strengthening recent converts. Elder Griffeth and I taught a lesson with 6 college students who have been coming to English for a little bit now and it was one of the coolest lessons I have had on my mission. All 6 vary in religion and faiths, from Catholic to Muslim. We taught them in the chapel and the spirit was definitely there and you could tell from their excitement and desire to know more and keep asking questions.
The highlight of the week probably comes from Wednesday, when we had the blessing to spend the whole day with President and Sister Senna and Elder Palmer and Sister Palmer (of the 70s) at the Matola Chapel for our Mission Tour. I won’t try to describe all that went down cause I wouldn't be able to do it justice but Elder Palmer helped ministered, inspired, and motivated everyone that was present at those meetings. The Lord truly does extend His hand to us by the leaders of the church that He calls. For a spiritual thought, I would just like to leave you with a line from Elder Palmers talk from the last general conference. "Anytime you feel you are being asked to do something hard, think of the Lord beholding you, loving you, and inviting you to follow Him." I want to invite you all this week to read Elder Palmer's talk and to study the story of the rich young man in the New Testament. Charity is the pure love of Christ and it never faileth! I promise to you all that if strive to develop that type of love for everyone in our lives we will feel of the spirit more fully, be able to bless more lives, and feel more joy in our own lives.
Love you all so much! Have a great week!
