Here is an excerpt from Elder S. Searle’s recent letter home:
There are a lot of people out there who need to know that life has it’s trials, but it is through Christ that we are able to overcome those trials and move towards a place where the world seems just right. As a missionary my job is to help Christ, and in doing so he helps me. This applies to everybody though. We can all receive help if we do what Christ wants us to do, this isn’t singular to missionaries.
Our investigator Azael definitely realizes this, he looks for what he needs to improve on and in the last lesson we taught he was 100% willing to follow all the commandments we taught him.
Erica has a lot of things in her life that she needs to change, but if she looks toward the savior, all of those things can be guided in the right direction.
Scotty needs to have the faith to even realize that everything we teach is a way to grow closer to Christ, and through that see the blessings pour right out.
Chauntel is really enjoying the things she is learning, and she’s suffered through a lot of pain in her life, and once again The Healer can help. I’d say the biggest miracle this week has been noticing the desire people have to look at the world through a perfect lens.
