Aloha!!! This week was a good one. It was jam packed and filled with work. Elder Pesci and I were trying to go for the most lessons that we both have ever had in the mission. A solid 30!!! 30 lessons in one week is already extremely hard, but it is even harder when you are in one of the smallest areas in the mission. By the end of the week we finished with a solid 25. Even though we were just short, it was fun giving it all we got! We worked so hard! Like insanitly hard!! Plus we were so blessed for our efforts.
So last Tuesday we went up to College Station Texas, and we went and played volleyball with our zone. Well on the way up we decided to go to the Texas A&M Football stadium (Kyle Field), and the door was wide open so we decided to go in. We walked inside and there were a lot of workers, and we said hello and went on our way. Not one person told us to leave. We actually got all the way down to the field. It was so sweet!! That stadium is so big and was so sick!!!
On Saturday my old investigator Milton got baptized, and I got permission to go all the way down to Houston to see it. It was amazing!!! It was probably the happiest I have been on my mission. I loved him so much. He is 18 years old and just a stud. The best part about it was that his dad Lorenzo (Elder Christensen and I's recent convert) was able to baptize him. It brought tears to my eyes as Milton came up out of the water with a huge smile on his face!!! This is why I am on a mission. To bring souls and families into the fold of God to live in happiness forever.
I love missionary work. We are all so blessed to have the gospel in our lives. I don't know where I'd be without the gospel. I know we hear that phrase a lot, but honestly, I would be in a rotten place without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have seen he miracles come and come and come. It's pretty amazing.
I love all you guys so much!!! Remember who you are and what you stand for. Because y'all are children of God!!!
Love Elder Heiner
