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 think I was blessed with a connection with the younger kids...

Hola Familia!
This week was another rough one. It seems like the investigators we have are becoming less and less interested every week. It is really hard to find new investigators too, everyone we meet is either Mormon or they have a reason why they are not so that is making it harder to try and teach because everyone has already heard from the missionaries before and they haven't been interested. We just have to keep pushing forward with faith that the Lord will provide people for us to teach.
Last week we got to play bball for p-day which was really fun.
My Spanish is coming along a little better now. I can understand more and talk more so that has been helpful. I have noticed that the Lord always provides for us and my learning Spanish has been a really good example to me. I know that if I use my full hour of language study and really try my best to speak the language as much as possible, the Lord will see that I am doing my part and then that is when I put my trust in Him and He will take care of the rest and I have definitely seen that so far in my mission.
We don't have any new investigators right now which has been tough, also a lot of the ones that were progressing have become uninterested. We have been struggling to bring investigators to church but yesterday we had 3 youth come which was cool. The strongest ones we are teaching right now are the young kids. I have been taking cookies and brownies to them too and they have loved them! I think I was blessed with a connection with the younger kids;  they trust me. So that helps when I am trying to help them by teaching them what they need to do to be happier and have more peace and guidance in their life.
Not much else is new, but we are going to the zoo for a p-day activity today, haha so that will be interesting. It is starting to get a little bit colder here too and everyone says it's going to start snowing soon! Can’t wait for that haha.
Also mom, Brother Wilson chastised me for bringing brownie mixes into the house because he cooks everything from scratch! Haha!  He told me to learn how to cook them from scratch, and that I could learn how from his cupboard. Soooo -I looked in his cupboard and he has like 20 cook books! So I started looking in them and got bored, so I just tried an experiment with his ingredients ha-ha and they were the best brownies ever! But I don't know all the ingredients cuz I was just throwing stuff in so after I make them again and write down what I put in I will let you know.
Love you all,
Siempre Crean,
Elder Creer
