A glimpse into the life of a Mormon missionary (Elder Creer) as he serves a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He began serving in the Utah Salt Lake City Mission- Spanish speaking. On July 1, 2012, he was transferred to a new mission- the Utah Salt Lake City West Mission.

I saw the Lord’s hand in my life a lot this week...

Hola Familia!
Conference was really good. We had tickets to every session except for the last one on Sunday. It is way different watching conference on the mission than at home. It seemed like I liked it a lot more. I took notes for all of the sessions too which was helpful. All of our investigators that went to conference think that President Monson is hilarious.
I saw the Lord’s hand in my life a lot this week with His tender mercies. First off, someone happened to find my camera card and returned it to me. I was so happy. All of my pics from Hawaii and the MTC were on there and now I have them all!
Also after having a rough week, I had the opportunity of learning a lot at conference and seeing some familiar faces! It goes to show you that the Lord is always watching out for you, and knows you personally. This first transfer has been a tough one. One that was filled with a lot of things that made me rely on the Lord more than I thought was even possible. I know that we will be blessed when we endure the trials that life and other people throw our way.
I had an investigator ask me why bad things happen to good people. The Lords answer- all our experiences are for our gain. I bore my testimony that we are all given different trials and experiences in this life that sometimes seem unfair and too hard to bear, but the Lord is there for us to guide us through if we let Him. He won't give us any experience that we can't get through. Some of those experiences need us to rely more on the Savior than others.
This transfer has made me realize more than ever that we can't succeed in anything without the Lord, and that He loves us and will show us His tender mercies if we look for them.
Love you all and hope all is going well!

Siempre Crean,
Elder Creer
