I Love Being a Missionary

Hi Everyone!
I just want you all to know that I love being in Mexico. Even though I´ve been here for almost 16 months, there are still times when I´m walking in the street and I look around and see the people selling tamales and the signs in Spanish and the graffiti and the pollution and I think to myself. "I love Mexico."

And I also want you to know that I absolutely love being a missionary. I love everything about it. I love that we spend all day everyday out and about in the work of the Lord. I love that I have the opportunity and the authority to testify to every single person I see that I am a representative of Jesus Christ. I love that I get to see so many miracles as the Lord brings about his work here among these people I love so much. And maybe I´m going slightly crazy, but I even love when people reject us, because it is exactly when someone challenges us or rejects us that I most feel the Spirit testify that our message is true. And later on, when someone accepts the gospel, it´s just the sweetest thing in the world.

I love walking through the streets. singing hymns with my companion and getting weird looks from people because we sing so loud. I love praying and knowing that my prayers are heard. I love sitting in an intense lesson with an investigator who needs the gospel much and promising them with all my heart and all my soul that this is exactly what they need. I love serving, and I pray that I can serve with even more of my heart, might, mind, and strength while I´m still here.

My friends, this gospel is true. It´s all true. God lives. Jesus Christ is the Savior and Creator of the world. The Book of Mormon and the Bible are the word of God. And our Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers.

Also, I hope you all know that I love you all!
