The First and Last Paragraphs - - REALLY Elder George?!?!?

May 18, 2015

Okay, my family and friends, I have so much to tell you all.  It has been a WEEK!!!  We are working so hard here.  It is weird to think that it has been a whole week since I deleted an entire email.  I really am a goof ball.

This week I have really felt the hand of the Lord is in my life.  As you come to understand the atonement of Jesus Christ (or at least as much as we can) it is lots easier to see His hand in your life.  I can feel the love that my Savior has for me and everyone else in the world.  This week I finished the Book of Mormon in Spanish for the first time and have been thinking lot about Moroni´s promise.  I have been thinking about how important it is that we apply that promise to our lives every day!! I finished the Book of Mormon this Friday and that night I just knelt down and said my prayers - -pretty normal.  Just about half way through my prayer I thought about this promise that we have.  I prayed and thanked Heavenly Father for all my friends and people that I love and then I thanked him for the Book of Mormon.  I know that book is true!  I love that book with all of my heart!!

Anyways, I have my first transfer.  I am going to CUZCO!!  I am soooo happy I don´t even know how to describe what I am feeling.  After you are with people for a little bit of time you become attached to them.  I am leaving some people that I pretty much consider to be my family.  But I am so grateful that I have the chance to build new friendships and meet new people.  My next companion just finished his training and so I thimk that we will work hard and he will help me get back a little of that spark!!

Not much to say this week!!

Love Elder George
