The Refiner's Fire
This week was definitely a growing week for me. I got my first Argentine bug and had to spend the day in bed. I should have stayed a few days but thanks to you guys I am too stubborn for that and went to work anyways. HAHA Well I am sure you remember about our investigators... Jackie told us she had been lying to us and has been breaking the law of chastity with her bf and doesn’t want to change that so she said she still knows it’s true but doesn’t want to have him move out yet and she is just going to wait to be baptized until she can be married. She said her daughter could still be baptized! But they didn’t come to church and won’t answer our calls or anything so we are not sure what is going on. Really sad the first time I have cried on my mission.... I know right now that the lord is sending me through the refiners fire and that through this I can either help it change me and become the best instrument in his hands that I can be, or I can let it ruin me and just be an average person! I am determined to become the best I can be so the Lord can know that he can always count on me and that he can trust me with his sons and daughters! I realized this week that the things the mission is preparing me for isn’t just for the next year and a half, but it is more for the next 80 years of my life and for the eternities. It really gave me a perspective that I can not waste a single minute of my mission and that I need to do all I can to become what the lord has planned for me!!! On a brighter note about our investigators we have this family, Family Frias. They are awesome and we are going to the temple open house with them next Monday!! So I am not sure how email will work next week, but either way I am so excited for this opportunity they are an awesome family that is receiving the lessons really good and they just need to be married so that is what we are working on right now and hope the temple will help them speed up the process!!! I really want to testify to all of you about the importance of scriptures and prayer.. If you have any question at all start with a prayer and ask our heavenly father for help and tell him what you are looking. Next go to the scriptures and listen to the spirit and it will guide u to the answers all you have to do is listen and follow it!! I know this church is true and that through these things we really can find more happiness then we thought was possible. I am constantly reminded of this as I focus more and more in this work.. Thanks for everything love all of you!! Take care!!
Love, Elder Eppich
I'm not quite sure why Kraymer sent this picture to me. It was the only one he sent today. I kinda wish he hadn't! ha. I think I know where he got the Argintine bug from..... I think he is showing me that he is using the peanut butter I sent him.
