I like the desert 12-12-15

to those who still read,

hi. how was the week? thats good. much love. im still here in Perú. 
This one was quite a good experience for me. We got to travel
the mission once again, and I was able to help my companion
do some legal things while president and the assistants did
interviews. We got to see all the missionaries and feel their
fire that they all have. My favorite night out there was when 
I was able to go on divisions with two elders, Elder Rice
and his trainer Elder Rodriguez. Elder Rice reminds me of my
first days in the mission and it was awesome. We went out into
the middle of nowhere in their area, called Cambio Puente. Just
dirt everywhere and we got the chamba going. We taught some
and I got to know them pretty good. A touching experience was
when we were driving back to home, our taxi man. I told him
my feelings of God. It was a long drive, so I was able to delve
into my testimony with him. I felt the spirit that night.

Elder Uceda when he was here made a really special experience
when he shared his testimony. He made sure to mention that
sharing a testimony is actually a really sacred experience. It 
is to show what we know, because of what we have experienced.
We cannot say we know something if we have not experienced it,
it would be more like lying and the spirit would not be there. 
That what the most powerful part of his training to me. 

Im thankful for testimony and the little one I have. I hope it is growing.
Im thankful for you guys. Here is a little poemI love, and lets me know
how important we are, whatever we do or whoever we are. Its all for God.

"Father, where shall I work today?
And my love flowed warm and free
Then He pointed out a tiny spot
And said, ´tend that for me´
I answered quickly, óh no, not that!
Why, no one would ever see,
No matter how well my work was done.
Not that little place for me.´
And the word He spoke, it was not stern,
He answered me tenderly:
´ah little one, search that heart of thine,
Art thou working for them or for me?
Nazareth was a little place,
and so was galilee.´
-Meade McGuire
