It's the Hap-Happiest Season of All!

Hello once again!

I just love this time of the year!  Christmas stuff going up all over the place!!  This is the time of the year where more hearts are softening, more minds are opening, and more eyes are seeing the importance of Christ in our lives!  I've really felt the Christmas spirit settle in here!  I'm super excited for what that has to bring to us and to our investigators!

As for this week, we had some great training from our Assistants Elder Allred and Elder Mo'o.  They gave a training at Mission Leadership Conference on Exact Obedience.  Obedience is stressed so much out here in the mission.  Coming to realize why was a pivotal moment in my mission and putting exact obedience into action has changed my life.  We are here to prove our loyalties.  Where do your loyalties lie?  Yourself?  Your job?  Your friends?  If your number one loyalty and top priority is the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ then you are exactly obedient to his commandments.  Anything less puts your loyalty in a different place.  Choosing not to read your scriptures proves your loyalty to something or someone else.  We have to prove our loyalty to God by everything we do.  Selective obedience is unacceptable.  You mock God and the Savior by pretending to be loyal to them. You fit in the category of when Christ told Joseph Smith that "they draw near unto me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me...."  Yeah.  It was a great training.  It's exactly what our mission needs at the moment.  There was a lot that the Spirit taught each of us individually and what we can do to help in our stewardships to have more exact obedience.  It was great!

Elder Ayala and I have really been focusing on continuing to find new people to teach. It's cool to see the small miracles that come from praying for opportunities to find prepared people.  We found two new families that we'll be teaching now!  It was awesome!  We followed the counsel to make sure you are exactly obedient in asking referrals from everyone and we had one family refer us to the other family!  Haha!  We still have to figure out their last names because we just talked to the moms of both the families but it all comes in time!  Haha!

Hey.  I want all of you to know that I love my mission. I will never get tired of saying it or talking about it.  I'll never forget everything I'm learning here.  It's so amazing how much God can teach you in one day if you let Him.  I love love love it out here and I'm so grateful for every one of you that helped me in any way to get out here.  I can't thank you all enough.

Love you all!
Elder Frame
