Mission Fathers: Trainers and Presidents

Dear Family, 

It´s a wonderful spectacular age to be a missionary in the true church of Jesus Christ. I loved watching the face to face last night with Elder Oaks and Elder Ballard.

Weekly Scripture: 2 Nefi 26:24

El no hace nada a menos que para el beneficio por el mundo, porque el ama el mundo, al grado de dar su propia vida para traer a todos los hombres a el. Por tanto, a nadie manda el que no participe de su salvacion

[24 He doeth not anything save it be for the benefit of the world; for he loveth the world, even that he layeth down his own life that he may draw call men unto him. Wherefore, he commandeth none that they shall not partake of his salvation.]

Beautiful scripture. I have a testimony that my Heavenly Father loves me. I´ve seen that on so many occasions on the mission.

Elder Mosley

I know in the mission they often call your trainer your, “dad”, but honestly I just feel that we are brothers. We are both learning and working to the best of our abilities to help people come unto Christ. This past week was really good as we worked on truly listening to people from our hearts. We are really trying to work hard on teaching people and not just lessons. We are trying to improve our questions and truly find the needs that people have. Elder Mosley has adjusted to the missionary life and is working hard each day to truly love the people here. He is an inspiration to me of humility, love, and obedience.

The work here is going really well. We need to work on setting definite time for contacting and finding new people, but we are working really well with the investigators that we have. We were able to help a less active (whose son (9 years old) is not a member) get to stake conference this week. I was touched particularly when he turned to me when the choir was singing, and said to me, with tears in his eyes, “this was the first song that I ever heard in the church.” We are working hard to find people here, but I definitely can be bolder and work harder. Our ward is noticeably trusting us more.

I am so grateful for my mission president’s help and guidance. I consider him to be a father to me. I don´t really know him that well, but I trust him with my life. I want to be exactly obedient to the rules. I’m grateful that he is patient with me, my pride, and my imperfections.

Have a fantastic day!

Elder Call
