I am working hard on talking with people and improving my speech. My companion, Elder S. prefers that I do all the talking. I just laugh and say, “I get to bear my testimony more…”
This week was stressful. J.B., (who you were also praying for) said he needed to “figure things out” before he could keep his baptismal date that he had set. We were meeting with another guy, “T” but it turned out that he had to move to Gibson a few days earlier than he had expected. Pretty much all the solid appointments we had fell through…The beautiful thing about the Atonement of Christ is that if we do all that we can and we still come up short, or people aren’t ready to find Christ’s teaching, just keep working, don’t complain, just think about right now and why you are here.
I don’t know why I was sent to Vancouver B.C. Mission, just a stone’s throw away from home…
I am just grateful to always have such amazing study time and from that, and when you find something in the scriptures and in life, and you ponder upon it and you begin to cry not knowing why, but there is such a Spirit behind it you cannot hold it back. I hope everyone will be able to have an experience like this that I had a couple of days ago. To get to your knees and thank Heavenly Father for everything that he has given you and for this experience you just had.
I hope for all, joy in everything you do, by serving the Lord and pondering upon His words. Thank you also for your support! – Elder Winkler
