Merry Christmas from Trevor to all

Quick email this week!!

Simply wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. And thank you for helping me haze my companion. "Nathan Wengreen, Karson Jensen? Who are these people?!" Haha, glorious. 

I just would like to encourage you each to do just one thing. Focus on reading your scriptures this week. Before my mission, i never had a habit. And now, that is something that I will never give up. We have the Lord's promise that we can find peace and happiness for the day  if we start with the scriptures. And I can testify that it is so true. 

Remember, we are all on a mission. Share the gospel with all those around you. The Holy Ghost will help you as you trust in him. I love you all!! Have a Merry Merry Christmas!!

Con amor, Elder Scoubes

Oh it's so good!

When our investigators give us cake but we have to eat it before our next appointment.  "oh it's so good.  So good!"

Simply, I encourage each of you to do one thing this week. Go watch the video, "the Atonement and missionary work". It should be on youtube or the lds page. i have never seen something that has inspired me more than that has. 

Keep doing the daily's! Orar, Leer las escrituras, y Asistir la Iglesia. You will recieve nothing but blessings. I LOVE YOU ALL.

snap shots of a Missionary's life

Baptisms and posessed dogs

All is well this week!!! Did someone say 2 baptisms? Yes. Yes they did. It was me. I said it. 

Holluh for the first baptisms of the mission!! And what an honor to do the baptizing! This work really is so beautiful. I can promise that in this life, if we want TRUE and LASTING happiness, it is through the commandments. 

Haha, I have also learned that Satan is very real. And that he posesses dogs to show us that he doesnt like us. But really, the dogs arent that bad.

Lots of good work this week! Sadly, Satan really wasnt happy about us baptizing two people, and he took it out on our other investigators. We had about 20 at the start of the week, but at the end, we have about 5. Yeah. This is the hardest thing, mentally, that I have ever done. It is so hard to have a progressing investigator who is keeping commitments, tell you that they just dont have time or dont want to hear anymore. We know that they are litterally saying no to salvation. And that is a hard thing to bear. 

But the loss of inv. meants that we have more time to find others who are prepared! And that is the plan this week!

Este vida es bien corta. Y es importante que, durante este vida, tomamos los deciciones que pueden ayudanos para sentir el amor de Dios. Todos pueden regresar a vivir con Nuestro Padre Celestial!

I miss everyone!

Con amor, Elder Scoubes

p.s. Everyone follow my blog! My Mother does an amazing job at keeping it updated and all.

Thank you nature... I love you too
