Welp this week was pretty good as usual. We are already in the 6th week which means that there are already cambios. This transfer has passed by very fast. I was hoping to see a few baptisms and more progress with the investigatores, but without all that it's still been a very good learning experience, and I think in these last few cambios I've learned more than I have in my whole mission. I've come to better know my Savior and the Atonement.
A lot of the times in the mission, a lot of missionaries ask themselves "why is it so hard, why don't the people progress more quickly, why can't we find more people to teach, why do they reject us, why do the members not want to help us?" and a lot of other stuff. Elder Holland gives this advice, that salvation is not a cheap experience. How could we ever receive any lasting and meaningful testimony of the atonement without having experienced a little suffering and a little of the pain that he felt? Christ's whole life was filled with disappointments, rejection, and sad experiences. The only perfect life this world has ever had and will have was filled with imperfect situations, and experiences. It gives me strength and comfort to know that if it was never easy for him, then why should it be easy for me? But thankfully Jesus Christ already paid that price, and is always there to help us and lift us up in our moments of affliction, and through Christ I can do all things. I hope everyone has a great week
Love Elder Webb
