April 26, 2016

Hey everyone! This week was normal. 

We have worked hard this week and it was fun. Elder Sorto and I are changing our way of working in our area 100% so it's been fun! We are looking at 3 baptisms this Sunday. We have Ismael, Cristian (his son) and Egma (Wife of Cristian). They all know they want to get baptized but not this Sunday. Elder Sorto and I have planned a killer week with lessons with them in different houses of members and with the best members in our ward. We are going to be having a great spiritual experience with them every day and the Spirit will lead them to the waters of baptism. We are going to close this deal! They will be getting baptized this Sunday!

Other than that I don't have much to say. Working hard and have been receiving a lot of revelation lately on how I can better myself as a missionary! It's exciting! 

The other day I was read Joshua 1:9 with some recent converts,

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. 

Sometimes we over think things. God has not commanded us to be perfect the first try. He has commanded us to be strong and of good courage, or in other words, He commands us to try our best. He tells us not to be afraid, just to have faith in Him. And the promise is true, when we do these things He will be with us, guiding us, helping us, picking us up when we fall. This promise is the same promise that we receive as we partake of the sacrament every Sunday. Just try your best. Trust in God. We will fall, but He will be with us and make things be all right. 

I love you guys! Thanks for all the support! 

Elder Buhrley
