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.

Have more energy and be more happy....

Hola Familia!

So this week we spent a lot of time doing tons of post transfer work.  We had to make sure that all of the information was right on the computer and it takes so much longer than you would think.  We finally got done with all of it this week and then tomorrow we start working on transfers for Oct 30th haha.   I think that I went to bed 4 or 5 times past midnight in the last week so I am super tired but I think I am receiving a little bit of energy help from the Lord or something.  
Every Sunday night we collect all the numbers of the whole mission by companionship by ward so it takes hours! Last night while we were waiting I decided to make a little circle dot next to everyone's picture on the transfer board that plays ball haha it was kind of funny.  My comp was like what are you doing....then he looked at the board and said you didn't just mark everyone that plays ball...and I said well.. maybe haha.  Today we are going to play with Elder Shuster's zone.   I am excited for the turkey bowl too, we have a lot of kids this year that talk like they are going to be pretty good but we will find out on game day.  
It was nice to see the pics from Johnny’s baptism.  He looks so much older and so do the rest of the cousins, its nuts! Glad to hear that he likes that song (How Can I Be?) too haha.  It is the best.  Tell them all that I say hi!  
 Well our area is struggling a bit right now but last night we had a really good night so this coming week some good things should happen.  The girl that was preparing to be baptized this weekend just moved to Taylorsville this week so she is out of our area and mission now so some other Elders are going to help her finish preparing to get baptized.  I don't have too much time left because I need to email President too..Hope all is going well there and keep being examples!
Real quick, we had the Brigham City Temple dedication yesterday and something that I thought was super interesting was about habits.  Our brain will try to make something a habit to save energy and stress.  So something that will help us not be as stressed out and to have more energy and just be in a better mood plain and simple is by having good habits.  Such as praying and reading your scriptures.  If we replace other habits that we have with habits that are going to help us come closer to Jesus Christ we will have less stress in our lives,  have more energy and be more happy.  Just a cool thought to think about.

Siempre Crean,
Elder Creer
