Enjoying a delicious chicken.

This week has gone by soo fast, I feel like yesterday I wrote you guys about getting transfered to Lomas and I just finished a month and a half here! But i have just hit a few big milestones I´d like to tell you about. 

So I've seen 2 of my 4 sessions of general conference.

This Friday I will have my first of two birthdays. 

In a short month I will have used two of my four video calls to my family.

This Thursday will be one year from when I opened my mission call.

All these things and probably more are happening right now, and it feels like i just left the MTC. It really is crazy to believe how fast time is going here. I just thought those would be cool to share with you all this week to show you how much I've accomplished. 

This week was a very normal week, we are still trying to find more people to teach and still trying to bring them to church. But I know that soon the Lord will bless us here in Lomas and that it will all start getting better. 

This Sunday I had a cool experience, so I was feeling a little down yesterday because we had a really good investigator not show up to church and later cancel the appointment that we had later that day and I was feeling a little discouraged and started focusing on the negatives. Then I started feeling even more down, realizing that that was not ok I decided to say a prayer and try to change how I felt. A few seconds later we contacted an old man walking in the street.  He later let us into his house to talk to him, and even though he didn't really seem like someone who could progress or that even wanted to progress, visiting with him cheered me up a ton. Then right after we left his house we saw his neighbor (a member) watering her plants, and we talked to her for a little bit and she made me feel even better! I know this isn't that cool of a story but it was a HUGE blessing that I saw this week.  It was God giving me exactallly what I needed to help me keep going. 

I'm sorry this was a short letter, but I love you all tons and will try to have something even cooler happen this week to tell you about.

  1. Don't eat that cute baby chick!! Though you may think your experience this week wasn't "that cool of a story" I think it was awesome. It never ceases to amaze me how if we ask and are truly doing our part, Heavenly Father steps in and gives us a tender mercy or two to let us know He is there, and cares about us. I know your work and commitment will pay off, and that Heavenly Father is watching out for you. AND you have an awesome angel mom in heaven watching out for you as well (not to mention a small army of people here in Utah praying for you). Keep up the good work Elder St. John!!
