David's FAVORITE SCRIPTURE
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

How's it going? We got a lot of work
done this week. We are planning to go to the temple this Thursday and the last
time everyone did this we had a good week. The missions stats have been the
best from the last 2 years so they should be good.
We are now working with three people
who have baptism dates. 1 of them is a family and we are working to help them.
We are shooting for the 25 of January but it's going to be tough. I am ready
for the challenge. The problem is the guy wants to gain more knowledge of the
church by himself, but we are going to teach him about authority. Plus if he
wants to work with the missionaries we can finally have a ward mission leader.
:) He just wants to preach the gospel. We could use him to help us.
I have never noticed until now how
important it is to have the members work with you. It is important that the
members help because they live there. We are here for a short time.
The investigator has afriend and he is super shy, I used to be like
him. I plan on helping him feel more confident. The work is super fun and
tiring but worth it. It is hard to do what we do.
The thing I learned was that the
atonement was never easy this is why not everyone is baptized. I am weak but
with God all things are possible. He has helped me so much in learning the
language that it is starting to come easier. Just today I was studying the
green book of Spanish and I was flying
past the exercises and thinking more on does that really sound right in
Spanish. I thought it would take me forever to learn the language but because
of the prayers and my faith it is coming. I don't understand everything but it
is getting a lot easier.
I can't wait to go to the temple
this week and do the things necessary to understand the language. It's fun now
to speak the language and I rarely think in English to speak it. I hope you all
have a great time at home.
