Here is an excerpt from Elder I. Batman’s recent letter home:
This week my faith grew a lot with fasting and prayer. It was so weird. We started a fast the other day to improve ourselves and during the fast I have never felt so powerful in my teaching. Like my words had so much power and feeling. It was incredible, I felt like I really was a vessel of the Spirit. Like the words were not mine, but rather of the Spirit. It was incredible, and was an answer to my prayer through fasting and prayer. I have a lot to improve on, and I know I can do a whole lot better. I still lack so much, but I know if we humble ourselves and we can become better, he can make our weaknesses become stronger.
