The Popes are doing well, and we're continuing to look out for service that we can do for them. We helped them put in a garden a few days ago. They are such nice people and help us feel at home. Their dogs also make for great entertainment right before bed.
I'm very very grateful for the opportunity and responsibility I have being a Missionary, and a representative of Jesus Christ. I know this Gospel is true, and it has been repeatedly confirmed to me every day on my Mission. I have a Testimony of the Atonement. I know that Christ made that ultimate sacrifice for every one of our Heavenly Father's children. I have a testimony of Prayer. I know that when I'm prayerful and diligent in following the promptings and answers I receive from Heavenly Father I become a better tool in our Fathers hand. I have a Testimony of "opening our mouths",(D&C 33:8-10, D&C 60:2-3) I know that when I have the faith to open my mouth and trust in the Lord, it is filled with His words. This Gospel is for everyone. Everyone on this Earth was a "yes" sayer in the Pre-Mortal world. They can be "yes" sayers again in this World. I know that I'll be with my family forever. I know that it is only through this Gospel that we can have everlasting joy. I know that I have been called by a Prophet of God to serve in my specific area. Even though the chili here doesn't seem to agree with me, I'll continue to do my best, and improve each day so that I may better serve my fellow men, and therefore, serve my God.
I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
