It looks like you've been having a lot of fun on all of these vacations! Are you ever going to be home again?? Haha it just seems like you've been away from home this whole time I've been out here. I loved the pictures that dad sent from Italy and the ones of you on Facebook and the ones in the e-mail you sent.
This week we have been talking a lot about the importance of receiving answers to our prayers and I have been very grateful and realized a lot more and more lately that serving a mission has helped me to recognize the hand of the Lord in my life. Whenever I ask him for things that I NEED or that other people I know need, He answers! It's been such a blessing to learn about this and also to teach Elder Wright about what I know to be true. Elder Wright has had some amazing answers to prayer as well that have helped him to see why it's important to be a missionary. We've both had dreams where we just wake up and are SO grateful to be serving missions right now! I can't remember if I told you the details about the one that I had a couple of weeks ago.. If not I'm sure I'll remember to tell you someday :) I can relate to that one person in the scriptures that talks about how he is led and comforted by the spirit in the day and visited in the night in his dreams... Nephi?? I can't remember, but it's been like that.
I just want to share with you something that I read this week that really stuck with me. It said something like: pray like everything depends on the Lord and work like everything depends on you. Don't you love that? And then, of course, the credit goes to the Lord!
I have felt again lately the desire to stay here forever and be a missionary until the end of time! I'm so happy to be here and hope that good things are ahead :) Chris and Luis are both progressing toward baptism. More than anything I think that what they need is to just sit down and sincerely pray to know if what we are teaching is the truth. The second that the spirit enters their hearts they will recognize that it's what they want more than anything else to be a part of the restored gospel. I know it's true because that is what happened to me! It would probably also help if they would read the Book of Mormon every day. We've been helping them to remember. I love Beaufort and I love the members of the ward here! It's paradise! I'll send you some pictures over Facebook. I haven't been taking many this transfer, but I'll try to remember to take more.
