Elder Reeder - Faith=Miracles

Feb 25, 2012

Hello Family!!

This week has been AMAZING!!!!!! Oh my goodness!!! We have five people
committed to church. My companion and I have a lot of unity and we are
working hard!!!!!

I am learning a lot as a district leader. It is incredible the things
you learn helping missionaries and other people. Answers to all the
questions they dont ask etc... I really enjoy learning. The Holy Ghost
is amazing.

Cool experience. The other day we were teaching an investiator named
Rafael. This man is amazing! He is evangelical but he knows a lot. He
is smart, he understands everything, yet he looks like a crazy old
man. He is great! He already knew about the apostasy, he was telling
us in the lesson that he knows all the church are false and are of men
no mas. He told us that a pastor went up to him and asked him to be
the pastor for a few churches. You know what he said? I dont have
power or authority of god to do that. So no. HAHAHAHA!!! This is
before we got there. So amazing!! He already has a BOM and he has been
reading it and praying and asking god. In every lesson we kneel down
with him and ask. We invited him to go to church and he said no
because he has to go to his, but then i told him if he doesnt go he
wont get an answer from god, because he wont be showing faith and
doing his part. He eyes got really big and looked at his wife and
said, thats is why we havent gotten our answer, we are going to church
and we are going to get that answer we have been looking for. We asked
if what it would mean if it was true and he told us that he would be
baptized, he would get eternal life and he would be the happiest
person in the world.

In that lesson i felt so happy. It was amazing. I have only had 2 or 3
other experiences that were better than that in the mission. So

Wow that is crazy how many people are leaving. Blake, Sy, Corbin
etc... It really surprises me they are old enough! I wont see them for
a while oh my goodness.

I am going to look for an umbrella today, and maybe some chilean
jerseys in the markets outside.... Things are going great. The
districts is progressing, my companion is progressing, i feel that as
a companionship we are growing grace by grace and EVERYTHING is
working because we have the spirit. Soooo awesome.

Mom, i decided on my classes but i left the paper at home..... I want
to take USU Physical Science, and nutrition. What is horticulture? I
also want a spanish minor so count me in on the test and classes if
necesarry after. I would like to take more than 12 credits. Like 15 or
18. I want to be busy and get things done. I have a list at home.
Please wait!!! Well just start doing everything and change it when i
let you know!! I will show you... as far the career class... it is a
possibility but i think i have things clear on what i want to do. So
