Life in the Field: Pedro's Challenge

Elder Jones & Elder Sasser
Another wonderful week in Mexico! Dallin was able to go on exchanges with Elder Sasser in Tonala and teach some people. The most exciting part of the week was having 3 investigators come to church on Sunday! That is a really big step and Dallin is hoping for some baptisms in the next couple of weeks! Today I am attaching a letter that Dallin wrote to his school friends about Pedro. Make it a goal this week to be more like Pedro and serve those around you! 
Elder Jones & Pedro

​Hey Friends,

This is my buddy, Pedro. I don't know how old he is and he smells a little funky, but hes the coolest guy around! I always give him a big hug! The van behind us is his home, and right now he is taking classes to learn how to read and write. He is a member of the church, and has grown a lot in Jesus Christ. His family has fallen away from the church, but that doesn't stop him from going to church and inviting others! He always wants to help us with sharing the Gospel with others! He always wants to share it because its something that makes him happy! True happiness comes from sharing with others and serving others. Let us all be like Pedro, and look for others who need help, and help them. Share something with others that brings happiness in your life! I know that through sharing, and being good people, we can receive blessings and feel the love of our Heavenly Father in our lives. I know that Christ lives and God loves us. I know that He loves us because he sent his son Jesus Christ to save us. Like Jesus, we can shine the love of God by serving others.

Thanks for your love and support!
