Miracles, Trials, and Everything in Between

29 10 2014

Hey what’s good fam! This week was preeeetty solid. There have been miracles, trials, lots of good times and everything in between. That’s what is great about being a missionary. You get to experience and accomplish so many different things each and every week. And I love learning new things.

So I got to go on exchanges this week. That was pretty fun since I had only been in the area for a week. haha But it was really good. We had some good lessons and met some new people that could be pretty solid investigators.

Lately we have been working a lot with Crystal and Joseph. Crystal is still progressing well and we are going to try and teach her brother as well. He is 10 years old and really afraid of dying. We taught him the plan of salvation. Hopefully he will continue to meet with us. We also met one of Crystal’s friends and she said that we were really nice and she would be interested in meeting with us sometime.

Joseph is another story. I don’t know what to do. haha. He is soooo good and smart when he is in his right mind. But sometimes is just isn’t in his right mind and he scares some of the people in our ward. He is fully accountable 95% of the time and I would say we should baptize him but if his bi-polar disorder is going to harm the ward…I just don’t know what to do. We continue to pray for guidance and inspiration. I love the dude. I love meeting with him and he is pretty chill. Last week he said “The Mormon church is pretty dope”. We are just going to take is slow and see how things go. No need to rush I guess..

Betty and Tom got baptized this week! They are awesome and the spirit was so strong at the baptism! I’m so glad that they invited me back and it was an amazing experience to see all my friends and family back there! Also getting to ride there in a brand new Audi A6 was prettttty nice. And the way back was in a Escalade.. no complaints.

We had a half-mission activity where lots of zones came together and did a cross fit workout today. That was really fun and I got to see all my Hemet buddies again!! I’ve been spoiled lately.

Well the work is continuing to progress and the Lord keeps blessing us with opportunities. I know that all we can do as members and missionaries is be obedient and qualify ourselves for missionary experiences. If we are doing our part to prepare, the Lord WILL bless you with opportunities to share this wonderful message of the restored gospel! I PROMISE. It has nothing to do with how good of a missionary you are. It’s his work.

Hope all is well! Love you all!

Elder Fischer

“It might not be so significant to overestimate how well we drive a car or how far we can drive a golf ball. But when we start believing our contributions at home, at work, and at church are greater than they actually are, we blind ourselves to blessings and opportunities to improve ourselves in significant and profound ways.”
-Ya boy Uchtdorf
