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 4, 2013 “1/4”

Hi, everyone.  As of today I’ve been on a mission for six months.  Six months!  That’s one fourth finished, fulfilled, done!  It went by so crazy fast...

Anyway, this entry will only be ¼ the usual length!

We had a special conference with Elder Mazzagardi.  Foi ótimo – It was great!

I got letters from Mom, Sister Emily, and Aubrey S—Thanks much!

The work is so great (I probably say that every letter, huh...?!) – I just love it here.  Elder Nielsen and I met a lot of new people this week.  We’re marking baptismal dates, doing all we can to invite souls unto Christ.  It is interesting that a portion of our investigators include kids (pre-teens).  That makes me think of 3 Nephi 9:21-22 where the Savior says, “Behold I have come unto the world to bring redemption unto the world, to save the world from sin.  Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God.”

I’m so happy serving a mission.  It is very fulfilling.  Also, I love this area!  I’m really nervous about this next transfer...I don’t know what will happen, but I know the Lord is in it.  Tomorrow I discover my fate—will I stay?  Or will I go?  Stay tuned and find out next week. Love y’all.  I’ll be home before you know it.

Love with all my heart,
Elder David Bean
