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.

The Lord can change someone’s heart so fast...

Hola Familia!
So this week’s letter is going to be super short because we were in a meeting with President almost all of our p-day so we don't have very much time left so sorry. But things are going well here!!  We have 3 people right now that are preparing to get baptized...2 of them are for October and one of them is for November so that should be exciting!  
So this week we got to eat lunch and meet Elder Clark as you know..I bet you were super surprised when he called you haha..Also this week we had a meeting with Elder Crittition from the area 70.  Crazy how much interaction we are getting with General Authorities lately!!  I am bringing my notebook everywhere with me so that I can try an learn as much as possible from all these brethren.  
There are also a lot of people from our YSA (Young Single Adult) Wards that are preparing to serve missions now because of the new age rule so that will be great for what is going to happen.  Do you know of anyone else who is getting ready to go out or that are turning in their papers?  
We had a pretty cool experience with one of the people that are getting ready to get baptized.  She is 18 years old. All of her family is Catholic so she was super scared about how she was going to tell her parents that she was going to be Mormon now.  We had a lesson at Temple Square and the Spirit was super strong as we were talking about how this church is the only one that has the authority of God.  And as it says in Mosiah 18:17 we have to be baptized by the power and authority of God to be added to His church so we invited her to be baptized when the Spirit was strongest and she said yes.  I don't know exactly what she told her family but when we went to see how she was doing the next day to our surprise the mom was super excited that she was getting baptized and all of their family that lives in California are going to come to it as well...also her mom is now interested in getting baptized and she gave us referrals for all of her family that live in Columbia. Kinda crazy how the Lord can change someone’s heart so fast and you never know when someone is now ready to come unto Christ.  
It reminds me of the conference talk about how men can change. 
 Just as the movie "Angels In The Outfield" always says..."It can happen"...as we have the attitude with all those people that we care about the Lord will be able to use us as instruments in His hands to bring them to the truth.  That is why it is so important that we are doing everything we can to have the Spirit with us so we don't miss out on opportunities.  You never know in the long run whose live you will affect so it will be cool to one day know exactly how everything came into play.  Well I gotta run but hope all is going great for you. Love ya!

Siempre Cree,
Elder Creer
