October 20, 2015


So I guess I´m not sure if my life just isn´t very exciting or if I´m just not an exciting writer or if I´m just used to the exciting life but I feel like this letter won´t be super interesting.

I guess the first major thing was the turn out at church this week. We found 4 new investigators last week and 2 new families and both of the families came to church so that was awesome.

Also as you´ve noticed transfers were this last week and GUESS WHAT!!!

NOTHING HAPPENED AGAIN! Like holy cow I´m with my companion AGAIN!!! 3 transfers together that´s like over 4 months we might as well get married like flip 😂😂😂 This like doesn´t happen very often, actually like never but that´s all okay. Plus my companion is the new district leader so  every time he does anything I say "no, you can´t do that, you´re a district leader now" or "what, you think because you´re a district leader you can touch all my things?" I think it bothers him but that´s okay because we´re in kind of a bother-each-other kinda relationship. There´s an awful lot of screaming in our room even though we just like yelling at each other to get some more spice in our relationship because things are getting old😆  but really we get along really well and we´re seeing more success in our area and yeah so EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!

Stake conference was this last week and my favorite quote from the meetings was "What you are looking for is in the scriptures". I believe that everyone in the world is looking for something, to be happier, to make an important decision, to  have a happy family, to understand why we´re even here on the Earth and just a whole ton of things, that´s why I like that phrase, because EVERYTHING you could EVER LOOK FOR can be  either solved or found in the scriptures. I testify of the scriptures and their ability to change lives. To make bad people good and good people better and to help us to be guided in a world of increasing wickedness. I wish that EVERYONE would put the goal to have a DAILY SCRIPTURE STUDY IN THE BOOK OF MORMON consisting of at least 15 minutes, and that when we do that accompanied with prayers of faith, sincere intent and the desire to apply the scriptures to our lives we will FIND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR!!! We will be guided to find it. I KNOW that when God inspired both ancient and modern prophets to write scripture they were thinking of Peter, April, Sarah, Rebecca, John and Will each INDIVIDUALLY to help them on the path, if we would only be willing to look for it.

 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh,findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
 Or what man is there of youwho, if his son ask bread,will give him stone?
 10 Or if he ask fish, will he give him serpent?
 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts untoyour children, how much more shall your Father who is inheaven give good things to them that ask him?
 12 Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that menshould do to you, do ye even so to them, for this is the lawand thprophets.
 13 Enter ye in at the strait gatefor wide is the gate, andbroad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and manythere be who go in thereat;
 14 Because strait is the gateand narrow is the way, whichleadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Another funny thing is that I talked to a mom this week whose son is on a mission and she told us that she doesn´t want him to come back because in the mission he is safer from temptation and things :DDD Don´t worry about me!

I love you!!!

Elder Mitchell
