Sunday, June 13, 2010 (Our 11th month Anniversary)

It has been 11 months since we left home for Provo and our mission. We can’t believe how fast the time is passing. July 13, 2009 seems like decades ago but the days, weeks and months pass so very quickly. It’s hard to believe that we only have 7 months left of our mission. Before we know it our mission will be over and it will be time to return home. But until then we continue to work hard and serve in the mission in any way we can. We love our mission, we love the Dominican people and we love serving the Lord. We are so very glad we made the discussion to put in our papers and serve a “Senior Couple” mission. The Lord has blessed us in so many ways and I’m sure in ways that we are not aware of. In fact some of our blessing may be beyond our ability to comprehend.

Today I taught the lesson in the priesthood meeting in the Los Arroyos Branch. There were about 15 brethren in the class. The Lesson was No. 10 “The Scriptures” in the new manual entitled “Gospel Principles”. All of the lessons, in fact the whole manual is very basic, designed for teaching new converts basic gospel principles and strengthening the testimonies of long time members.

It went very well. The spirit was there in abundance. Everyone in the class participated, answered questions and helped me out a lot. It’s a good thing too; my hearing is so bad combined with a less than perfect knowledge of “Caribbean Spanish” that I would have had real problems if it weren’t for everyone’s help. Almost all of the Elders in the Branch have been members of the church for several years and they are very well versed in the principles of the gospel.
