Week 8

Hello Everyone! Hope all is well and things are going good for you. I am doing great and I am fully recovered and was cleared by the Doc on Tuesday to depart to Armenia as well as run again. So its been nice to do work outs again everyday. Well I don't really know what to say. I wish I had more time. I have so many spiritual experiences I wish I could tell everyone and how much I have grown and learned. I am already so happy I made the decision to be out here. I never knew you could have this much joy by serving the Lord 24/7 and soon the Lord's children. I leave in 5 days now and I am excited and ready for change. Its crazy how much Armenian I know, I had a conversation with my teacher the other day and was just going off and didn't even realize it. Also I can tell you that there has been so many times in my lesson where both my companion and I will bear testimony to an investigator and we just go off and say what they need to hear and we don't even think about the language. Then after wards we look at each other and think wow did i just say that? Its a neat experience that happens time and time again with the gift of the spirit. Its crazy to think how much I know, and how much I don't know if that makes sense. Although I feel like i am doing pretty well right now, we have been told time and time again that it all changes over there. So I am excited for what is about to come but I also know that in 5 days the language is about to rock my world, and I have come to peace that there will be frustration and disappointment associated with that. I am ready though, and excited. We depart to some town in Paris that I cant pronounce from salt lake around 4:50 pm and then from Paris to Armenia. Things are about to get real, and I am ready for it!
Yesterday we were  trying to skype some guy in Armenia and my companion didn't know he was leaving a voice message and turned to me and said "Elder Lunt i have to fart so bad" and i was like "elder don't, our teacher is going to smell it hahah" and then he looked at his computer screen a min. later and realized he had left a voice message to some guy in Armenia that speaks great English. Hahaha I was dying laughing. Elder Gallardo and I get along pretty good. Hes great and very athletic and so goofy/ just doesn't care what others think.We have gotten close this past few weeks serving as zone leaders together and working as a team. We teach in unity and with the spirit and have figured out our chemistry and how we teach and work together as a team along with the spirit. I hope we serve together in the months to come.

As I was in the temple this morning I opened up to a very neat verse in the celestial room Alma 26:22 I think it was. It brought peace to me and reassurance. Through faith and trust in God all is possible. Its something that is easier said than done especially in our times of testing.

Well I I don't have much time but I will send a lot of pics. Pictures are worth a thousand words! I love you all and hope all is well. I hope you are all seeking help and guidance from the Lord everyday and staying close to him. I know that this work is true and that there is no greater work than inviting others to come unto Christ. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know all of us personally and will never leave us alone. And through Jesus Christ and his grace and perfect Atonement we can return to live with him again. "Grace is not the absence of God's expectations, but rather the power to make up the difference" I know that through Christ and his Atonement all is possible. I Love him and I know he loves me and each one of us. I hope that we can all look within our own lives and change everyday. Everyday arise to a higher plane of living and and everyday become better until that day we can meet God face to face and say we have done our best to become like him. I love you all and I love this experience. Have a great week. 

Love Elder Lunt
