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.

"When life gets too hard to stand, kneel"...

Hola Familia!
So to start off, last night we had the best dinner of my life haha.  We are eating with the Polynesian Ward this week and we got to go to a huge BBQ last night and it tasted suuuuper good.  It was like being on the island again haha.  We had chicken like they have a Kahuku Grill! 
The area is struggling still.  We lost 4 of our wards this last transfer and that is where all of our work has been.  Then yesterday with the work that we still had in one of wards we lost because they re-did the boundaries for the wards and the other companionship got that area as well. So we are on the struggle bus right now haha.  But we were able to have 2 really good Temple Square lessons this weekend which was really nice!

I am also excited to be able to speak Spanish again with Elder Dreiling because mine is getting worse and worse. We are teaching a couple Spanish speaking people right now so that is fun.  In one of our wards they have a goal to get a Sunday School class in Spanish up and running so that will be fun to accomplish that!  And yes- we get to go to Conference if we have tickets or if we are taking any people we are teaching. The problem we are having now is that we don't have any Conference tickets... :( but we are hoping we get some between now and Saturday haha. But I am super excited for Conference because we can always learn new things that can apply and help us with what is going on in our lives right now. So before you watch conference this time write some questions down that you have so that you can receive some revelation during that time. Also reverence invites revelation so make sure that you are reverent when you are watching it.  Hope you have some great experiences and learn lots!!

Siempre Cree,
Elder Creer
