Letter from Spencer 4 March 2013

hey family
so jetzabels confirmation went well, she has still not missed a week at church since the first time we taught her! the reyes also came and the kids were actually way more well behaved.
we had a tour of the mission by elder nash, it was awesome i loved the spirit and the revelation that happened in that meeting, we learned tons.
i testify of the truthfulness of this gospel, i testify of the happiness that comes in not only believing but living the principles taught, it is the only true way to happiness and peace in this life, and in the life to come.
sometimes as a missionary you see the world deteriorating around you and the people you teach and the people who live the gospel, the satndards drop, things that were awfull a few years ago are just fine now, and the gospel is the only thing that does not change, it does not budge, and we can be the same if we are steadfast and immovable in the standards we live and the morals we go by. we must follow the example of moroni and strengthen our surroundings, we must have safe places to go to, walls built up around us to protect us from the fiery darts of the adversary that without doubt will come, but if we do our part to put on the armor of god and flee to our safe places in time of danger we can set ourselves apart from the world and the power of the adversary will have no effect upon us, oh if only every man and woman were as moroni, i guess i will just have to wait till the second coming.
anyways fam, i am doing good, i love the work, i love bringing the light of the gospel into the homes of those in darkness, i love seeing the gospel change and shape people, including myself, i just wish we could all do it togethor. man o man i want to go to the temple again. dad, you and me not too long from now, i cant wait.
im glad you all had a great week and got to do so much fun stuff but to be honest, i had the best week , so be jealous haha.
love elder harris
