You Will Be Found

To Whom It May Concern:

You may be wondering why you received an email such as this today. Well, it may come as a surprise to you, but it is already Monday again. Can you believe it?

Elder Brewer and I are movers and shakers. We're doing our best to build the program here in Berlin. 

We just have been doing regular missionary work. Teaching, finding, studying, repeat. Not necessarily in that order. 

I got sick this week, and I've been doing my best to not let it get to me. I stayed in for a while to rest. 

I have had the opportunity this week in my free time to read some of the stories from my ancestors, and it has been actually a really spiritual experience to learn about who they were and the experiences they had, even the funny or coincidental ones they just wrote in their journals for fun. It makes them real people, and I start to connect with them in a way I didn't even believe to be possible. 

I am just finishing up reading Jesus the Christ from James E. Talmage for the first time, and it has been such an incredibly eye-opening experience for me. The details he adds to the mortal ministry and trial/crucifixion of Christ along with the descriptions of the groups of people existant at that time is not only also incredibly fascinating, but it also helps me 1000x more to be able to understand the bible better. This week for me, in my study and experiences, has been a huge emphasis on Christ and who He is and what He did and how real that is for every single one of us on this whole earth. It's almost hard to fathom it all. I also finished memorizing The Living Christ this past week, which was a goal of mine. It was really cool to finally get it down, and having memorized it has deepened my understanding of the diving mission and mortal ministry of Jesus Christ. 

I hope you all are doing well and enjoying life. Find time to see the Little Wonders. (yes, that was a reference to a song for all those who caught it. ;) )
