Baptism of Fabian

      This week has been pretty good trying to keep busy. Weve been working with the members a lot and we have been seeing the work grow in our area. Since conference and the hastening of the work, we've been pushing member missionary work and how they can help. Its been amazing to see how much the wards are helping now and we've been getting alot busier.
Its the end of transfers this week and me and Elder Duano are staying togeather in our area! Im so excited I didn't want to change companions. He is called as district leader, so were gonna be busy this next 6 weeks! Im excited for him and us as companions. We've been getting along so well and were motivated to do our best to be good examples for our district!
  Last night we had a baptism for Fabian. Its so wonderful to see him grow and to see him share his testimony at the baptism, it blew my mind. His conversion is solid and he is such a great guy. Only being 15 and now the only LDS member in his family. His brave example will help his family and he wants to show them the light that he has felt.  It's so awesome! One of the best part of missionary work is seeing others testimony grow and grow and to see their conversion. It warms my heart to know that i was able to help someone see the light and help them understand the gospel. I am so glad to be a missionary.

 I've kinda been homesick I guess, if you could call it that. Im not depressed or anything  hahaha I just always think about the beach and surfing and being with my sisters. But I've been looking for examples in the Book of Mormon to help me out. Like Alma the younger that just got home from teaching the Zoramites, stayed for only a little bit, then went back to teach the city of Melek and the City of Ammonihah (i think that was the city).  But just seeing that he constantly was going on missions not only for 2 years but much longer. Also Lehi when he left his gold his silver and the land of his inhertiance to obey the Lords commandments. I applied that to my life and how I left my family (my gold) the beach (my silver) and the land of my inheritance to serve the Lord! because like the sons of mosiah saw that every life was precious and they didnt want any to perish. This has helped me alot and I am not home sick at all!

I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel and seeing the spirit work in others and helping them see the light. There is no happier thing on this earth than living the gospel. The joy that comes from it is just so wonderful and so pure. Thats what I want others to see how happy the gospel makes someone and how it blesses families. I'm so happy to be a missionary.
miss you all
