The heart of the mission... Is mangoland!

Reu is great, and loaded with mangos! My new companion is Elder Prior, from St. George, Utah. He is a great missionary and is very obedient, I hope to learn a lot from him. We are re-opening an area in the center of Retalhuleu that includes the central park. It's a bit tough, especially because the previous missionaries didn't leave us any investigators, therefore we have been left to contact a ton... until now we have found some very positive people that are in desperate need of the gospel, but have some big challenges. We hope to find more this week. The members here are kind of dead and very few of them showed any interest in our arrival on Sunday, therefore we had to personally go around and present ourselves to the members and slowly try to get to know them. We share the ward with the assistants, which is a lot of fun. One of them is Elder Meyers from Idaho Falls!

I listened to President Eyrings talk from the priesthood session again and was impacted by one of the truths that he was trying to get in our hearts. Its easy for us to say and accept that we are children of God and that our potential is divine, but sometimes we have a hard time realizing that others have the very same potential, no matter how far away they seem to be from it. In the mission I have learned so much about God's love for His children and have even been able feel, sincerely, in part that love for His children that are all around me. We should all strive to develop that love, if we do we will find so much more satisfaction and happiness and we will be able to overcome any fear. The church is true!

Love ya tons
