Hey everybody!!! So first off I want everyone to know that I really don’t have a lot of time to write now because the new presidnte is cracking down on rules, so if the friends could keep their emails shorter please so I still have time to write you!!! Thank you!!!
So it sounds like everybody had a fantastic week!! That’s awesome about Nicole’s mission call, she will do great in Mexico, and it’s totally the perfect call for her!!!
Well it sounds like you all had a good 24th of July, and a good time up at the cabin! I love going to the cabin, I can’t wait to go when I get home! haha. So this week was good, we are working way hard here in Juliaca, oh dad so Juliaca is about 40 minutes from Puno where lake T is and where I live is AV. el maestro, close to the center and it is about 2 blocks from the bus terminal. terminal Terrestre. So you can find it now. So talking about Puno, we actually are going there on Wednesday because we have a multi zone conference to go to and we get to go with all 28 from our zone there. I don’t know if I will see the lake but I hope.
So this Sunday I gave a talk in church and I talked about Elder Holland’s talk from October about the First Great Commandment and it went well until the counselor put a note on the stand that said gracias telling me my time was up haha. Also I have been playing the piano in sacrament meeting and it sounds horrible because I haven’t practiced piano forever!!!!
On Saturday Presidente Harbertson and the assistants came to have training and to interview us. honestly I absolutely love interviews and training I feel so uplifted, and the presidente you can really see is called of God to help us and lead us I learned so much from him. We were talking and he told me,...
“Elder Goaslind, I put you in this sector and zone because the lord inspired it. and you need to know something, the lord has plans here, I can feel it. there is going to be a big change here and you will have the opportunity to be a part of it.” That was awesome, and I love training!!! It’s awesome we talked about that also.
So the training from the assistants was good, it was about obedience and the rules of the mission that presidente is going to crack down on!!!!!! So we all had a challenge to fast yesterday and receive revelation on the things we need to get better on and we have a goal to get better in 40 days, so that’s what we are going to be doing as a mission now is cracking down and being more obedient because before we really weren’t.
So walking with 2 gringos in the street a lot of drunken people are attracted to us. In fact 4 days ago I ended up singing with a drunk man and then teaching him a lesson and inviting him to church!! it’s quite interesting. Another guy told us we are Pharisees from the United States and that he is Bin Laden and he doesn’t like us. So a lot of interesting things going on.
We finally have a room but we can’t move in for 3 more days, so we are still living with other elders.
This week I challenge you to read the Liahonas from June of this year and read....
Dear are the Sheep that have Wandered from James E Faust.
and Improving Your Personal Prayers form Kevin W Pearson.
they are awesome talks and I felt so good reading them so much comfort!!!!!
Well I am out of time I love you all and hope you have a great week I can’t wait to hear from you again.
Remember the lord in everything you do!!!! So this email wasn’t very informative.LOVE ELDER GOASLIND!!!!!
