So sweet that Ben got a job !!! Prayers have been answered ! Its so cool to see how the Lord blesses his missionaries. Elder Bentley lacks confidence and talking with people, but I promised him that the Lord would bless him to learn quickly and gain strength and confidence and it is amazing to see his progress already in just 2 weeks. I have been counselled to keep my mouth shut and let Elder Bentley talk and learn by experience and I was having a tough time keeping my big yapper shut !!! Finally I did really good yesterday and it was awesome to see what Elder Bentley was capable of. I am loving being a trainer, it is a huge responsibility but I love it ! I am learning and growing so much from it as well as Elder Bentley. Josh is preparing for baptism !!!! He did not make it to church yesterday but I am not letting it get me down. My leaders have helped me realize/understand that I need to stop beating myself up, and to remember this is the Lords work and things will happen. So I am really trying my best not to and I am feeling a lot happier cause of it. I love being a missionary !!!!!!!!!!! We had a really cool experience with Josh. He has been doing really good and he said something that really touched my heart. Since he has come to church and been reading the scriptures and keeping commitments, he has been so happy and has been over coming his "demons"/temptations. He said that the other day he was sitting there and all the sudden he had this feeling that he has never had before in his life. He said, "I felt like I knew everything was going to turn out alright, for the first time ever in my life." The spirit was so strong as he shared that. His kids are so awesome and we are looking forward to start teaching them. That's crazy that Derek will be home in a few days !!! I'm so proud of him !!! Little Ellie is so cute !!!
Love you all and thank you all !!!!
