Wow sounds like all is changing back there!
I am great!!!
This week was rather short it seems but man we worked our butts off and I’m a tired little Elder!!! We had to really bust it this week cause we’re coming up to the end of the month and well we need to start preparing a family to baptize for next month. Oh my I love this work even though its super stressful and has your mind working so hard all the time and just thinking about all the people you visit and all that they need it sure does make you feel good that you can just think about others and their problems instead of your own!!!! How wonderful!!!
But this week man I can’t even remember one experience right now because it all passed by so fast it just seems like a blur now. I remember one, well we went to visit this family we contacted one day. Well we actually contacted the wife and then we were going back to meet the husband. After a little bit of small talk getting to know him we went inside and started to talk about their beliefs and views on religion and all that jazz and well he was just straight up don’t invite me to go to church, don’t invite me to read or do anything, basically I’m just here to listen. We started to teach and share experiences and testify and well just started to do everything and as they listened the husband got closer and closer and by the end he was paying attention just so attentively it was amazing, tears started to fill his eyes and well the spirit touched his heart. He accepted every commitment we left with them that day and was very willing to do them. Awwwww how the spirit is soo wonderful and can change any man or woman in the whole world!!! I love it!!!
So that’s what’s up family nothing tooo much but I’m just loving life and I don’t know what else to say!!! Well we’ll be talking chau!!!

Ok so family how are things going?? Sounds like is a blast back there in Calgs but hey I hope you all have fun in all that you are doing!!!
So things from this week. Well we worked hard even though we had some interesting events happen like interviews with President and well I had to stay with a missionary inside as he was recovering from a sickness and well all that stuff that a missionary does. We had a good week as we kept trying to strive to be better and well I don’t know what to say we just saw some great miracles and were able to really trust in the Lord on a few things. It was a great blessing to see that yesterday we had no one in church and then at the last minute 4 investigators showed up to sacrament meeting after we looked all morning for people!!! What a tender mercy of the Lord!!! So that was the great miracle of the week. But apart from that my interview went sooo well and well I just love President Salas what a great man he is!!! So inspired, and well just perfect for me.
I’m still with Elder Castillo and well its going great and I’m learning lots!!!!
Well fam I’m sorry but I don’t really know what to say. I love you all soo much and I just know that this church is true. I really had to come to terms with that this week, through an experience I had. I know that Jesus is the Christ that he is the only begotten of the Father and that he knows us and loves us. I know that he has given his life to save ours and I will be eternally grateful for that sacrifice. I know that this is his gospel and that as we preach it he is at our side teaching as well. I know the Holy Spirit of the Lord is the great comforter for man and I love this gospel. I leave you with my testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Well all for now I love you lots!!!!
Love, Elder Harker
