Elder Shrute Assistant President (to the) :)

Well hey!! So I hate to make this kind of quick but this week was fantastic! Really really spiritual week for me. With a bitter sweet ending.. hahaha
I figured since transfers were here nothing was gonna change since I just got here. Well I got a call from President Tye last night.... Hes called me to be his new assistant!! I was shocked.... hahaha Its crazy. I didn't know what to say. Never thought that he would call me. But I'm honored, its just kind of a thing where you don't feel worthy enough haha. I always looked up to my APs when I was first on my mission. Now its me, its pretty scary. But I reflected a lot on Reggie's  plaque scripture. D&C 6:33 and 34 
 33 Fear not to do good, my sons, for whatsoever ye sow, that shall ye also reap; therefore, if ye sow good ye shall also reap good for your reward.

 34 Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they can not  prevail.
Its helped me out a lot. I'm just going to do the best I can. Whatsoever I sow good, I will also reap it. I'm grateful for the Trust that President Tye and the Lord have in me. I hope I don't let them down. 
Well its bitter sweet because I'm going to really miss Los Pinas! Its amazing here and I'm defiantly going to miss the people we were teaching. This coming week we had another family being baptized. then the next month another. haha I'm especially going to miss the Lachica  family. I had probably one of the most spiritual experiences with them this past Friday. Well We were proselyting in the evening and we didn't have them on our plan for the day. But we both had the prompting to go by. Well we got there and Brother had just had it. He was super mad and stressed, he was ready to kill somebody or himself. He hasn't had a job in like 2 months, every where he applies won't take him because hes Mormon. He barley has money for food. His children are having trouble at school, and they just found out they are going to be kicked on the streets soon because they haven't paid rent. so he had just had it. He just went of on us for like 30 minutes. The spirit was just gone. All I could think of at that time was to give him a priesthood blessing and teach the atonement. Well finally when we got the chance to speak, we offered one, and a little hesitant he accepted. Well we offered the blessing, and in the middle of giving the blessing. He burst into tears along with his whole family. I had never felt the power of god more strongly in my life. And he also said the same. The whole atmosphere was changed and it has been ever since. I left that house just saying to myself god lives, and his priesthood is real. The atonement has power over all evil. My life changed that night and my testimony grew. 
Well I'm stoked for this new journey! its gonna be great, I just know it.:
Love, Elder MC
