Luke's Letter Dated August 19, 2013


This week has been really good! 

Sunday we got a new branch President. His name is Bro. Olivas. He's super cool! And his son is like the most solid young man I've ever seen. It's pretty sweet! 

Friday we had a big family night as a branch. We had like a couple games that us missionaries put together. Including a three legged race! It was really pretty funny to watch! Then we had a bbq and played soccer and football. While we were playing football, I was still in my white shirt, tie and slacks. I got tackled a few times. But Every time, I was able to make it so my shirt stayed off the ground, and didn't get a single grass stain. I rock. 

The night before, our young men's president. Bro. Betancourt told us that we needed to come to the temple with them to do baptisms. We told him that we weren't allowed. He said I know, but you guys aren't gonna do the baptisms, we have two non-members who are going to be there and you guys need to teach them over on temple square. We were shocked. At that moment we realized that we have one of the most solid members in the world. If all members were like him, we wouldn't have a moment to rest during our days, and we would teach people like crazy! I'm really glad we have a resource like temple square here to use. It really helps people feel the spirit and come closer to christ.  

I've been thinking a lot about why i'm here in Salt Lake. And the answer is... I dunno. There's a lot of possibilities. There could be something big I need to learn here. I could learn something that I need to take to Argentina to start changing the mission there. I could need to participate in the temple ordinances of my cousin Cory who passed away last year. My visa could be held up because i'm in the military. I don't know. But the one thing I can trust is that the Lord does know. He knows why i'm here. He knows why I haven't gone with most of my group to Argentina yet. He knows what I'm going through here. I just need to trust in him. I need to lean on him for help and guidance.

I love you all.
