E-mail - Nov. 15, 2006

"I feel like I'm finally back in the swing of things as a missionary with a new companion. I have a feeling that the transition period will get shorter and shorter with each new companion. Thanks for the e-mails. I love hearing about my little nephews and it's a joy to hear you recognize your blessings...We have another baptism on the 25th, Lawrence. He's from guess....GHANA! It's a miracle too, he seemed to just fall into our laps. We were in the right place at the right time and he has just gobbled the Book of Mormon up. Missionary work is different from anything else (or maybe it's not) because I can't take any smidge of credit for people accepting the Gospel, especially for people like Lawrence. He's so prepared, he calls us everyday to check in and asks us for scriptures he can study for the lesson we have prepared for the next time we'll see him -- amazing! The most spiritual thing that has happened this week was probably teaching Latif, a man from Turkey (originally Afganistan). Latif knows very little English and we met him on the street, spoke for less than five minutes, but we told him we would order a Book of Mormon in Persian for him. He called us for an appointment. (I love when they call for an appointment!) and we taught what we felt he could understand but mostly tried to figure out what verses were where in that crazy language. Watching his face read was incredible. You could just see the light in his eyes as he read from that precious book. I love it so much! Thank you for your prayers. Keep reading and praying. Talk to you soon."
