What strengthened my testimony this week, would have to be my personal studies. I have really learned to study, and not just read, but really study, and learn. And it seems that everyday, I learn something that I am able to use in a contact, or a lesson. It really strengthened my testimony that the Lord will put the words into our mouths, but we must first treasure them up in our minds and we do that by studying.

"I am only 18 years old, I am not mature, I am learning a new language, I dont know all the things that I could, But One thing that I do know, is that the Book of Mormon is true. And because I know that, all the other things will fall into place. "
" favorite Doctrine to teach, the Atonement. I have put in a lot of effort in studying and understanding the Atonement, and I have begun to understand it soooo much more, and what effect it can have in our lives
favorite things about Elder Johnson.( my Companion )... he is soooo funny!!! He has the best attitude I have ever seen. And he loves everyone!
The most important thing that I am trying to teach Elder Johnson, is that we don't know everything, but if we are worthy, and willing, the Lord will use us to perform miracles. He has promised us Angles on our left and our right, to help us. But we need to get out and work.
My spanish is ok, I think we are the only pension in the mission of just gringos... but we try to speak as much spanish as we can. DONT STOP THE PRAYERS!!!
Favorite meal... well we didn't get lunch this week, but I made a pot of rice, and put an egg in it.... IT was amazing!!! hahaha..
Thank you so much for all of your support. One thing that I decided while watching Meet the Mormons, is that I don't want to be just a missionary. I want to be a disciple of Christ, that through me, he can and will perform miracles. This is my goal,
I love you all!!!!"

We had a New missionary Meeting... and I am 100 percent positive that those meetings are better for the trainers then they are for the trainees... But, President talked about pride, and again, things needed to be changed in my life... But they were changed and I have learned...
But that was my week, full of ups and downs. But never a moment that I would trade, The easter that is here is a lot like at home, Eggs, and chocolate, and very little talk about Jesus, But all that will change shortly, All will come to know of the lord and savior Jesus Christ. I am so greatful that I can serve him. I am so greatful for his atoning sacrifice, that allows me to keep on trying. We are as we learned, Just sinners, who keep on trying. This life is a life to learn, to make mistakes, to repent, and to keep trying. I am so greatful for all of the examples that I have had in my life. From the sport heroes, to my brothers. To my loving parents, who have done their best to teach me the right ways. I am So very greatful for a Dad, who, Is a Dad, a friend, who loves me and cares for me. I am so very greatful for a Mom, who is so much more than just the only woman in the house. For a mother who, sometimes on her own makes our house a home, who cares for scrapped knees, who can take on the boys, who forgives easy, and loves long. Thank you. You are the best I could ask for.
Elder Ryan Spencer!!!!:)
