Dear, President Trayner
I am so excited have had the oportunity to have my first Christmas as a missonary here in McAllen Texas Mission.
We have been working to find more investigators this past week to make all our other numbers to go up too. We were blessed to have Herny come to church in this bussy time of the year his wife dropped him off becuase his eyes aren't that good enought to drive. He sounded like he was planing on coming back next week.
We were also blessed to have a guy named Ed come to church he has been taking lessons on the phone with the missonaries in Salt Lake and has almost finished the book of Mormon!
I love working with Elder Hardin he has and is teaching me a lot of good things. We are working together really good and hope to make the work fly in the area.
Also I want to share how I am greatful to have talked with my family it wants me to be better at the work everyday and be a better missonary. One thing that i though was a cool experience I had talking with them is My Mom asked me if I felt like I was on a vacation? I answered yes to her question pretty fast and they just laugh and then I explained why... I think of a vaction as being fun and full of laughter, learning, and I lot of other things. However, writing in my journal afterwards I thought and wrote that my mission is a vaction but more a journey in my life and for my life para siempre. Vacation/Journey meaning growing, learning, praying, growing closer to my heavenly Father, searching, being greatful for every moment and thing, loving, laughing, understanding, and a lot more that I could put write down.
How wonderful is it to be a missionary!
Amor, Elder Wilding
