Cedar Rapids

Life is just so good, right now.  I am now serving in Cedar Rapids, IA, and I’m loving it here!

It’s such a great town full of hard-working, humble people.  I want to spend the last 7 months of my mission here.  Plus, I love my companion(s).  Elder Bouwhuis is my companion and we get along really, really well.  He’s the best teacher I’ve ever taught with and I have so much to learn from him!  But I say “companion(s)” because we live in the only missionary house in the mission with 2 sets of missionaries!  It’s so great!  We take the 1st floor and Elder Gowers and Elder Emmett take the upstairs.  It makes the mornings/nights ridiculously fun. Plus, we have so much work to do here!  Ugh, I love this place.

This past week, my desire to be an instrument in the Lord’s hands has been building exponentially every hour.  I can’t explain it.  I’ve always had a strong desire, but all of a sudden, things just feel different.  I’m back on my mission, I love everything about my situation here, the ward is amazing, things just feel unhindered right now.  Does that make sense?  I just have the strongest urge to go the extra mile for everyone I see.  It’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, it’s just so…spectacular.

There’s not much more to report, really.  I’ll have some great stories for y’all next week.  With a place like this and the line of work that I’m in, you can’t NOT have great stories to share.

Faith and Honor,
Elder Eastwood
