I’ve finally found the gear-shifter.

What an incredibly humbling, exciting, and amazing week.  I have learned so much about what it means to be a servant of the Lord this past week.  I’m brimming over with enthusiasm for this work and am in love with my job.

Had a ward luau and it was a huge success!  The rain just added to the awesome atmosphere.

On Tuesday, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend MLC because I am currently companions with our Zone Leader.  I may go Zone Leader this next transfer, I may not.  Personally, I don’t care.  I like being a District Leader more anyways.  Anyhow, MLC was an amazing experience for me because I feel like I finally caught a feel for the urgency behind our work and message.  I’m ashamed to admit that, but it’s true.

I then was able to give a training on what I had learned at Zone Training Meeting and I tried to convey my new-found excitement to the rest of the zone.  In particular, we focused on the importance of church tours and inviting to baptism on first lesson/setting a date on the second.

I feel like I’ve been in first gear my whole mission, but in this past week, I’ve finally found the gear-shifter.  The key for me was having full faith.  We as missionaries must remember and realize that we have the Lord on our side.  We have the ability to call down angels and see greater miracles than anything we can imagine.  Everyone needs the Gospel.  That’s just a fact.  We are here to go out and work a “marvelous work and a wonder.”  We are here to change the world.

I’m just so excited and what makes it even better is that the area’s progression seems to be directly correlated to my excitement/diligence.  We just set another 2 baptismal dates and will be setting many, many more in the upcoming weeks.

Faith and Honor,
Elder Eastwood
