"When the Lord Commands...... Do It!!!"


This week flew by! Probably the fastest week of my mission. We have been working on transfers this week. A lot. We have been working with President to build a new way to get all the missionaries transferred without having a "transfer meeting" because the missionary department doesn't want mission wide gatherings.. So, that has taken up most of my time trying to figure out all the logistics of that, and President Orgill wants there to be a spiritual side to the meeting too... so we're working on that. :) Also, the actual transfers has been taking up a lot of time, trying to think of different scenarios, companionship's, areas, and everything. But on top of all that, we taught a new investigator this week named Sarah! We taught her the Restoration, but she wasn't able to make it to church this week. We're hoping that she is praying for a spiritual witness of the truth, I know that if she does that, she'll get one. She has a lot of faith. Also, something kind of fun that will be happening, is that Gladys Knight, (Yes, the one who sings 'Midnight Train to Georgia') is coming to Irvine to do a devotional! Elder Ashton and I were able to sit in on some meetings about it, and it sounds like its going to help the missionary work around here. We were able to meet her daughter and talk with her for a while. Its called The Gladys Knight and the Saints Unified Voices choir devotional or something like that! We're pumped for that. Other then that, not much is new! Elder Ashton is doing great and he's helping me a lot.  Although there is a TON to do here, I've been able to keep my stress levels down by reading my scriptures and praying. Looking back on all the experiences I've had on my mission, I've come to know that if you do not read your scriptures often and pray daily. You will lose your testimony. We truly do need that spiritual nourishment. I've also been trying to live by this quote by Joseph Smtih, "When The Lord commands.... Do it". Although its been a tiring week, I've learned a lot, and I am so grateful for Heavenly Father's love and mercy. Also for all the things that you both (Mom & Dad) have taught me, and continually do for me! Thank you! I hope you have a great week! Love ya!

Con amor y besitos,

Elder Dallin Fuell
