All right family and Friends,
That was a long letter, Mom. Wow. But it was good; I liked it. And yeah, no problem about the whole school thing afterwards reminder. I remember now that it will be a little hectic. I will pray and think about it and give you a what's up a little later. I do, however, know the perfect job for me, and you guys will like it. But I won't say till I get back. I'm trying to push it aside so I can focus on my mission.
So my companion is having an emergency transfer tomorrow and I will have a new companion from A********** named Elder Aagoirhneoghp. I forgot his actual name it but it does start with an A. So I haven't really learned the Area yet exactly but I will figure it out. The members here are very helpful. I like it here. Lots of hills, but they are small compared to J******* (where I was last).
So this week, we are trying to figure out how to help our less active members and those non-members learning about the Church. It is tough over here. I really want to help them, but me being new, and now I will have a new companion, we have to learn to gain their trust. I guess we could start by doing service. That always helps people to be more receptive to us. "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God." I always have liked that scripture from Mosiah. I think Dad was the one that taught me it. And it stuck.
We stayed in the house a lot this week. So I looked at it as a break. I didn't want my companion to overwork his knee so we just stayed at home. He had some Monopoly card game and we played that forever. This week though, I will get right back to work.
There is not too much to write about, but I do love you all and I thank you for your encouragement. I want to be able to get lost in the work and feel the Spirit all the time in order to teach by the Spirit. That is our main goal. To teach by the Spirit. That is the reason us missionaries have all of these rules; so we can have nothing that will dull the feeling of the Spirit. I understand now. Teach by the Spirit. Makes sense to me.
I love you.
Love Elder Brady
