I'm doing well here, about as much as you should expect from a missionary...
So in Spanish, people often use the word "fresca" (fresh) to describe the weather. It means not too hot, but not too cold, and okay to spend a lot of time outside. Well where I'm serving now, most of the people speak fluent Spanish with OK English. However the problem is, "fresh" doesn't directly translate! So often the people stay "It's fresh" that I've gotten used to it. It's pretty funny. Laugh!
Speaking of our purpose, I don't know if a lot of you know our purpose. It is "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored Gospel through Faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the end." Or, in short, "Teach Repentance, Baptize converts"
Becoming a missionary is learning to align yourself with that purpose, and understanding the great responsibility we have as disciples of Christ to bring his Gospel to all the world. People may try to drag us down, Satan can throw temptations and obstacles in our path, but "no unhallowed hand will stop the work of the Lord from moving forward." We already know who's going to win the fight here. There will be, and already have been, a lot of casualties. But the ultimate victory will go to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The only question we must ask ourselves is if we are on his team.
Anyways I'm having a great time here. I love you all and I hope your weeks go well.
