El Reloj Del Destino

Time is short, like a nervous man's fingernails. Hence, I may not have much of a letter today. However, this week was awesome! First of all, my companions are spectacular. Elder Jocelyn (Hurricane, UT) is tall and skinny, and way cool. He is the other zone leader, and is very hard working (and English speaking). He likes keeping things clean, which is good because so do I. The only exception is  my desk, which isn't unclean, per say, although it may rightfully be termed as disorderly. There is a difference. Elder Budge (Logan, UT) is a Spanish speaking missionary. He played football as a right guard in High School, and he certainly looks the part. He has a great sense of humor and a wonderful work ethic. He is fairly new, but is rapidly approaching the time he will no longer be called 'greenie'. He and I like to sing together. Finally, Elder Muñoz (From Atlanta, Georgia [pronounced "Moon-yose"]) is also Spanish speaking, and he is fresh from the MTC (we are training him). He is a hard worker, funny, and humble. He is doing very well already, and is very willing to learn. As a companionship we work very hard, are very obedient, and have a lot of fun, which is exactly what a good missionary companionship should be like. This week we met a new investigator named Nick. He is going through some struggles right now, and it was so nice being able to testify to him. He committed to repentance and to make amends with a relative he wronged recently. He has profound sadness in his life right now, but I know that through Christ his exquisite sadness can become exquisite joy. I know of the power of the Atonement. I know that through Christ we can find joy and light, no matter what our circumstances may be. Happy New Year everyone. Take this fresh start as a time to commit yourself even stronger to Christ, your Savior and Redeemer. Have a wonderful week. Adios.

Elder Benge
