I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy. Alma 29:9

Back To The Field ...It's White and Ready To Harvest!!!
transfer cycle ended. I am no longer Assistant to Presidente Chaparro. I get to
train a new missionary and open a new area. I am still in Salta until Wednesday
and then me and my new companion (when he gets here from the MTC) will head
down to Tucumán together to open a new area. It will be a fun experience
considering the fact that neither of us knows the area or have any idea what's
going to happen. All I know is that I am so glad that this is the Lord's work
and HE knows where everyone is, and who's ready to receive the blessings of
being a member of the Church so the only thing we have to do is go to Him for
help. All that being said, I have felt this weight over my shoulders and just a
nagging feeling in my stomach these past few days. I want to be in my new área,
¡pero ya! My greatest desire is to be an instrument in the Lord's hand for
these last 12 weeks, in the training of a new missionary and the baptizing sons
and daughters of God. My lack of patience is the death of my faith, so I have
been looking for every way to exercise my patience and faithfully continue
forward with the Lord's help... It's been a slow couple of days.
My High: Juan baptizing Maria.. and then hearing the testimony
of Maria after her baptism.
