Well, it is getting close!
so this week was a lot of work and spiritually testing. We finally got one of our investigators to church and i have high hopes for this guy. we will see how things go. Sorry if this is a short email i am kinda jumping between computers so I will try to put the most important stuff up first!
Well, the letter to president site is down so i guess i have a little more time! anyways, this week my companion really got down to the nitty gritty about some things and we have uncovered some really important questions he has and so we have been working them out. it has been a really cool experience because it reminds me a lot of when i first got out here and i started learning the right questions to ask to really strengthen my testimony. of course, there is no gain without some pain so we have been working hard to figure out these answers. i feel like when we get to the bottom of everything we will be a lot better off as a companionship and missionaries. its kinda like watching someone learn to drive. you see them trying and trying and you know they eventually are going to get it because you were in their shoes before. so at the point when they believe it is never going to happen and are pulling their hair out you can kinda just smile inside because you know they will figure it out and how valuable it will be to them when they do.
so, that has been this week. a lot of those, "i remember how hard it was to..." moments. it makes me a lot more grateful for the progression i have made in my life.
Well, i love you all and i pray for you each that you may overcome your trials. I send out my condolences to the Shaw family and pray for you and your missionary boys out there in the field. I know that the things they are learning and teaching will make it possible for them to find comfort and strength in this time of trial.
See you soon,
Elder Channing Winterrose
