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.

He is still wearing my stuff......unbelievable...

Hola Familia!
So I don't have tons of time today because we had two new visa waiters come in this morning and we just got done getting everything settled in with them and trained so we are just beginning p-day now and we have a lot of things that we need to get done today.  Conference was super legit!  I thought that it was crazy about the age change with the missionaries.  

 My favorite session was Sunday morning’s...We were waiting for one of our investigators who was on his way to the session and we didn't have any tickets for that session so we were just going to watch it in the North Visitors Center.  We didn't have any phone service while we were sitting in the theater room so we had to go upstairs to get service on my phone so that I could know when our investigator and the member that was bringing him were going to get there.  While waiting up there I saw Bry of course.  It was super cool to see him and I found that he is still wearing my stuff......unbelievable...lol.....Bry- you better keep that tie in good condition because I am going to want to wear that when I come home!  If you notice in the picture that his tie and my tie match...and as always my matching pen ha.  

 My favorite talk from conference would have to be Jefferey R. Holland.  He's like the Kobe Bryant of the apostles for me haha.  I just remember being literally filled with the Spirit when he was talking from my head to my toes.   So it was cool because it always says that in the scriptures about being filled with the Spirit and I was literally filled with the Spirit so it was legit.  

Our investigators that we brought had great experiences at conference and really felt the Spirit strong.  For one of the sessions we got tickets from the mission for the 3rd row on the very bottom and we had and investigator and a returning member coming so Elder Dreiling and I gave our tickets to them and they went with Elder McNees into the session and we went to the Visitors Center again.  They ended up having a great experience and I was so glad that gave up my ticket to let them go inside.  "First observe, then serve" right! It might seem like a small act of service to give up a ticket but I think that it meant a lot to them so it is all worth it.  I loved when Jeffrey R. Holland was reminding us of that question about if we love Jesus Christ and at the judgment God will ask us the same.  It just blew my mind haha...I think that we always need to make decisions based on this question.  Is whatever we are doing helping us become closer to the Savior?  Can God and Jesus Christ see our love for Them by our actions?  Something that I have been thinking about and conference was amazing!

Well I’ve got to get going but hope all of you had great conference experiences as well! 
Love Ya!

Siempre Crean,
Elder Creer
