11 Munths. ya me voy

Hey everybody,

Time has been going by so fast 🙁

I am doing alright with my companion, we were getting along super super awesome two weeks ago, (when I started to write this letter and the lights got shut off all night long), but this last week was not so great. I am trying to use all my time wisely and misuse none of it, and my companion is not in agreement. We wasted some time in a couple of houses, and my companion likes to talk a little bit too much with some of the female peoples we are visiting, so that’s cool… I guess we will see how it works out.

Edwin baptized his little sister, only 6 days after becoming a member himself, it was a really good experience. 

I tried a new study, which was to go through my patriarchal blessing and make a two sided list. Blessings, and requirements. I learned a lot and feel like I got a lot out of it. It is something good to see and to know. 

We had one of the 70s come to our mission and give us a lesson thing instead of having a zone conference this go around. He is called Elder Alan Walker, and it was really really good.  He spoke powerfully and I felt the spirit strongly. I have been feeling really really good lately, and honestly have had the spirit with me a lot more often as I am striving to be a better disciple of Christ. It has been a good experience. I feel calmer, with more peace and I find Joy in my everyday works. It has been a great blessing to try and continuously apply new doctrine to my life and be better every single day.

Also, the on November 16th, Elder David A Bednard is going to come to our mission and we are going to have a conference with him!!!!! It is going to be the best day of my life. He is my favorite.

For Halloween, I have no idea what is going to happen, or how they celebrate it here, but I don’t think they are going to do anything because we have heard nothing.

Even though I couldn’t write you this last week, I feel like it was a normal week. I have sacrificed it all to be here and I am trying to submit myself to the will of My Father. I have never seen such great blessings and tender mercies of the Lord, and in his infinite grace and goodness He has done much for me. He lives, and it is the most true thing that we can know.

I love you all, 

Elder Searle
