Hey everyone! happy Monday... it seems like the week went by super fast!! which is always good!
This week was ok... we had Leadership training on Wednesday and that was awesome. i Love president Pike, but when we had Leadership training with him it always seemed like it took forEVER and it was because brother Pike would do everything so... i dont even know how to explain it, but it was like there was only one way to do things with him, but with President Becerra you have things that are uniform and also things that are flexible and it makes everything alot better, because then you know that you can kind of do it the way that you think it is effective which is nice.
He taught us alot and he even opened it up to question and answer and that was cool to here some answers to questions that i have had... it has just been good Learning the way that President Becerra teaches us... he wants us to be interactive so he asks us alot of questions to kind of have a teach everyone, and it makes sense because we are the ones teaching the District Meetings and things like that ya know what i mean? it has been good!
you asked why we have not been eating... well our Ward Mission Leader is suppose to set up all of our dinners for us and he has not been doing it, but i talked with him yesterday about it and he said that he will do better and i guess that is all that we can ask for right? i dont even mind not eating... the ward here is really missionary minded and they have friends they are working with and we need to get into their homes so we can take the next step with their friends. i have only lost a few lbs not too much. My foot is good it continues to get better i went to the Doctors 2 weeks ago and he said it have improved so much and by the end of this month it should be fully healed! so i am pretty excited about that!
We Finally started teaching Brandy and Carlos... we have been waiting to start teaching them for like 4 weeks now... them have been coming to church for almost months now and they were just seeing if this was really something that they wanted to do and it is! we had a great first lesson with them and invited them to be Baptized and they said yes! so we are excited about that! they are both 19 and they just want something more in their life so this is the pathway they have chosen! i think about my patriarchial blessing and what it says about youth... and then i look back on the different baptisms that i have helped with... most of them are youth and i love it!
we have an investigator who believes everything that we teach and believes the Book Of Mormon but he isnt interested in changing... how does this happen? i still do not understand... oh well.
anyway that is about it for this week i hope everything goes well for you guys this week
i love you very much and i do pray for you all the time!
thank you for the package... it is good! i will send my memory card home here... um probably this week i will get it sent off.
Love you all have a wonderful week!!
Love Elder Emery
