Week 72 (02/13/17)

Hello everyone! Happy Valentines day (unless you're a missionary)! ❤❤❤

This week has been extra good. We finally had interviews and zone conferences so we got to see President and Sister Cahoon along with Elder Gallegos, my comp from Piedras Negras.

We had zone conference on Wednesday. President is putting a lot of emphasis on keeping the flame of faith alive. I feel like there are so many things that we need to change as missionaries to have the most success but it's really hard sometimes...I feel like I need to change so much in order to do everything we need to and we are trying really hard. President shared a quote by Joseph Smith about how even the least of us can have the same visions he had if we just have sufficient faith. It still boggles my mind that if I just have enough faith I can be visited by angels and I can speak with Heavenly Father but I know it's possible. I think it's just going to take a lot of work...

On Thursday we had interviews which was really good. I love talking with President because he is always encouraging us to do better and helping us improve. President helps us so much and he really wants us to improve to help more people receive the Gospel. This work is such a miracle. I don't know how a bunch of young men like us could have any success if this weren't the truth. Haha!

For the rest of the day Thursday we worked with Elder Gallegos. He came out with us and helped us find new people and gave us help in the lessons. It's fun to work with my old companions and see how they have changed.

On Saturday we found a new family of six. They accepted us really quickly which was kind of surprising and they were really friendly. I feel like they will progress pretty well.

Until now I have seen more than sixty birds. I think I could do a little better in Utah but for being in one place in the middle of the Mexican desert I think sixty is pretty good for two months. Haha! I'm pretty sure I saw some pelicans today. They were far away so I need to consult my book.

Well, that's it for this week! I hope that you are all well and that you have had a good week. Everything is good here and the work is marching along.

Con mucho amor,
Elder Steiner
