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.

She told her boss she wouldn't be working on Sundays so she could go to church with her family...

Hola Familia!
This will be short. The reason is because we had a visa waiter last week and we had to take him around to the Mexican consulate and go get his flight plans and then we took him back to the airport today. We went back to Paisa Grill today with the ZL's..the Tongans including Elder D-and Elder M- who is one of the ZL's but also the raining heavy weight champion of the mission. He has destroyed all of the food challenges here and I told him about the Pasia Grill taco one and so we all went today. Now when I broke the record and got 29 tacos, I weighed 170...Elder M- weighs like 100 more than that haha so long story short. Elder M- tied me at 29.
We had another baptism this week and everything went really well. We have two marriages lined up next weekend so that is exciting!
I will just share one of the miracles that I had this week before I log off. We were teaching a lady 2 months ago when I first got to this area and then she just disappeared. Then two weeks ago we found her again and arranged for her to get married. She really wanted to get baptized too but the problem was that she was working on Sundays. So we committed her to ask for Sundays off so that she could go to church. She asked her boss like 3 or 4 times for Sundays off and he just told her no. So then we had a lesson with her and we shared the story about when Nephi went back to get the plates and particularly 1 Nephi 3:7. We promised her that if she asked her boss one more time for Sundays off that he would give them to her because going to church is a commandment and if it is a commandment then God will always find a way to make it happen. So the next day she went to work and told her boss, not asked, that she wouldn't be working on Sundays so that she could go to church with her family. Her boss said okay and gave her Sundays off which was great! Things got a little complicated with the boss threatening to cut her hours altogether.  She prayed that her boss’s heart would be softened.  She somehow found herself in an interesting position where she found a paper her boss needed that had confidential information on it.  When she returned it to him, he accommodated all of her schedule concerns.  It’s true; the Lord often works in mysterious ways…
 I gotta go now but I hope all is going good back home.
Love Ya Lots!
Siempre Crean,
Elder Creer
