Elder Bean's Mission Scripture

Elder Bean's Mission Scripture:

Alma 26: 35

35 Now have we not reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began; yea, and my joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things, and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will repent and believe on his name.

March 11 photos and news

Note:  Still no "official" blog letter, but Elder Bean sent these photos to his family on March 11th.  The big news was that he was not transferred during the previous week.  His email home reads:

Mom! :)
...I STAYED!!!!  Yahoo!!!  I'm super happy about it, and... I'm training!!! :D  I'm a trainer of an Argentinian named Elder Lucas.  I'm teaching him Portuguese, and  how to do this missionary work!  It's so cool!  I love it.  It's like DM,* just more personal.  We're working well and it's great.  It's so wonderful that I'm training him where I was trained!

Elders Lucas and Bean

March 6, 2013: Between "pai" and "filho."
Elder Bean saw his first trainer, Elder Petersen, while at the mission home
to pick up Elder Lucas.
* DM stands for Drum Major--a position in which David served while in his high school's marching band.  Elder Bean often mentions his gratitude for the ways band and scouting helped prepare him for his current service in Brazil.
