I am doing very well today. The work is very tiring and sometimes all our plans fall through for the day and we end up walking for hours on end and stopping every so often to teach a quick lesson to members and refilling our water bottles. It is like a party of salvation, literally. :)
The work in our area is going slowly but surely. The temptations of Satan are very strong when it comes to investigators, because if they falter even the slightest bit they will become confused and start to lose balance as if they are on the small tip of a butter knife. The other hard thing is that at times the members of the church aren't the best examples and are the reason why so many people here have become less active and at times is hard to teach and testify that this is the true church, but this just strenghtens my testimony and want to become a better person and example for others.
The youth in our ward are truly amazing. Elder Dominguez and I are trying to incorporate the youth in our missionary work and they are a blessing to have. One of our investigators has been befriended by one of these youths and is continuing down the path to Eternal Life.
Scripture: 3 Nephi 18 - "Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the light which ye shall hold up..." We need to be worthy to hold up His light for others to see.
I love you and thank you all for your support and love.
