tims letter

I got this letter from Tim this morning. He is doing so well. He is on his 4th Island and said he will probably stay there til the end. Mindelo is on that Island and I have heard of that city. I love what missions to for our children and for others children.

I received a letter from a member that lives is Fogo and is now a mini missionary. Let me translate what he wrote to me word for word.

His name is Jony and he said "Elder Wyson, how is the mission going over there? Here everyone asks about you. They say "where is that funny elder?". It is with much pride that I am writing you to thank you for the help you gave me when you were here with Elder Cruzinho and Elder Nascimento. Principaly you gave me lots of strength and encouragment to prepare my mission papers, your advice strengthened my testimony. I remember when you told me that I was only being tested because my mission papers were taking a long time to finish. You are a really cool, relaxed and way loving with people. Now, I want to give you some advice. Don't worry about what people say about you. You are valiant for the cause of Christ. Your are a server chosen to teach his words. Then he left the scripture 3 Nephi 5:13."

And that is what he said. You guys can take it for how you want but I have my own way of taking it and that man has a special place in my heart. I don't always see my success as I have said before. No maybe I am not AP or ZL, but you know what they don't get to teach as much as I do. So maybe that is why I haven't be called to those positions because my mouth, my teachings ,and my attitude with people helps bring people to the gospel and to Jesus Christ better than the next. I really don't care about those positions. I know is that I love the Savior more than anyone in the world because through him I can love someone. This church is true. I love being a missionary. I am not saying I don't get trunky and think about home sometimes, but it passes and I keep working. That is life as a missionary I love this work and the other stuff can wait until later. I love you all
