Crazy week!!‏ (July 27, 2015)

Dear everyone,

So this week has been so long, however it has been so satisfying at the same time.  We had a lot of work to do with a crazy number of doctor appointments at the same time.  And all this with working half time!!  So one piece of crazy news is that starting next week the president has informed us that we will only have 1 hour to write home on Mondays, which is actually normal for missionaries, so I`m not surprised nor disappointed.  It just means I`m going to have to write faster and I`m going to have to write more letters in my free time.  

This week for us has been very spiritual.  Full of finding peoples doubts, helping them understand doctrine, and then bearing a testimony that has the Spirit testifying of every word we say just after we say it.  I`m so glad that I have the opportunity to be a servant of the Lord in this short amount of time and that i can be an instrument in His hands, showing to others the blessings His Gospel brings.  

One thing that we need to get better at is that we need to talk with more people.  Right now we aren`t contacting as much as we should be.  We`re making goals to get better at that, because that really is why we`re here.  We need to humble ourselves enough to realize that even though we are doing well right now, we aren`t doing well enough still.  We need to learn that we can never stop looking for more people to teach.  

All in all it has been a fun week.  And everyone is telling us of how much of a special companionship we`re going to have because we are both going through so much together we will never forget it.
I love you all so much and I hope that you all have a good week.
Mucho cariño,
Elder Forsgren
