I have grown up hearing stories from missions and being told it is the best two years of your life. That there will be success and disappointment. That life will never be the same afterward. The truth of those statements have only just started to shine through. Nothing can prepare you for the changes that God with work on you when you are on a mission.
This week we have been teaching two “investigators”. One has been wondering about the existence of God and the other doesn’t like church in any form but has a deep love of God and Jesus Christ. The first one is a man named Milan from Nepal and the other is named Michael. The differences in the ways that they accept principles are very interesting. With Milan, we have already committed him to baptism. He is reading the Book of Mormon and praying and committed to go to church. Michael has accepted a Book of Mormon but is not reading it. He says that he agrees with the things that we teach him or that he likes the ideas of what we say. We have been trying to find a way to help him have the desire to read the Book of Mormon. Even though our teachers are only acting like investigators, the spirit is in the room helping us to teach and to understand the needs of our investigators.
I don’t really know what else to say. Life is pretty regular here, the only thing that distinguishes one day from the next is the little things I focus on. Like the mountains, the weather and how much water I am drinking. We watched Joseph Smith the Prophet of the Restoration last night. It was really amazing and myself and a lot of the other Elders were inspired and wanted to go to Germany today. The Swedish missionaries just left this morning and we were super jealous. I hope everyone is doing well. Weidersehen!
