The Worth of Souls

My dear Mother, 

This week has been a really good week! So many things have happened I have had lots of experiences that I would love to share with you! REady? Ok first off I was thinking about a phrase that Pres. Monson said in conference. When he said that your decisions will determine our final destination. That really impacted me to the point to do a self evaluation and see how well I was making decisions. I came to the conclusion that I need to better my decision making. Yes it is sufficient right now but it can always be better. We have been working hard this week, my companion and I. Oh ya he is from Bolivia! I didn't mention that? hmmm weird... But I have been making him start the lesson and contact the people this week. Poor thing... he is so lost still. But I was thinking about all the things that he has done this week and I compared them to the first week that he got here. Wow, in that sense he has progressed so much! I have been able to see his efforts and be grateful that he is trying so hard. That makes me happy to see that he is trying hard. We have found so many other people to teach. One day when we were walking through the street a phrase came to my head that the Savior said,  
john 5: 11 am the good shepherdthe good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
When I thought of this little tiny scripture. I felt my blood rush through my body. And I heard something say inside my head, " Feed my sheep Elder Spencer!" I felt a need and a longing to talk to everyone about this wonderful Gospel. I felt responsible for every single soul in my area. And that night I pondered about that feeling and another scripture came to my head that is in DyC 18:10 "Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God;" 

Elder Spencer
