2014-06-23: Good Advice From a Great Mission President-Aloha

Hey guys, Elder Vincent checking in another week.  

Well, this week went swell, and we had so many meetings because a lot of things are happening.  Tuesday we had a zone meeting with 2 other zones for a last meeting before president leaves.  He talked a lot about the missionary work and summed up his mission and it was basically a goodbye.  It was hard saying goodbye... Haha the mission presidents are kind of like second parents to the missionaries.  He said some interesting things, and one of the things is about unlocking and finding your true potential.  And it got me thinking about the parable of the talents, and how we all are given talents.  As we develop and grow we receive more and more, and it is up to us to determine how far and how much our potential grows.

The work is going good here in La Leyenda, and we are finding people.  One of the things that is a challenge is finding people that want change in their lives... many people are really complacent, and it seems like with all of the challenges and problems in the world people lose hope.  But we found this family this past Wednesday and we were teaching them, the Hermana says " why are there so many churches, it seems like there is one of every block.  There should be unity in the world and in the faith right?" and we were so happy because she was hitting the nail on the head.  There are different churches here on every corner, but there is no unity in the world.  We are going to continue working with her and let you guys know how it goes!

Sunday we had a meeting with the stake president and all the bishops in the stake, and all the missionaries just sat there while the leadership in the stake just tore up the bishops because they pushed the missionary work on the side... it was kind of funny.  But all is going well here.

I hope you guys are all doing well.  I love you guys and have a good week!
