First week in the Mission Field

Dear Family and Friends,
My first week in the mission was amazing. My first area of the mission is La Palma. My companion/and trainer is Sister Emmert, she from Virginia.  She is really nice. We get along very well. We had a training meeting where the APs spoke and gave us challenges and taught us how to teach power. The difference between Power and Authority is one things that I learned this past week. Authority is that we are given permission and Power is actually doing it.
President Tew also taught us something that got my thinking more about my prayer. He taught that the most important words to a pray is the very last line we say In the name of Jesus Christ.  He said that by saying that we are unifying our will with his, if he were here these words are what he would say.
 Each today as I go out and spread the gospel, I am grateful for the blessings that it has been in my life. I have seen sadness in the life of people who don't have the Gospel, and I am grateful that I have been given the wonderful opportunity to share the Gospel with others.  It is definitely a change that will take a while to adjust too but I know that with the Lord help I can adjust to it quickly. 
I have done some contacting and have taught quite a few lessons. It is amazing how the spirit works. I have learned that if I study in the morning, then no matter what I studied or no matter what the investigator needs I have the words needed put into my mouth. I thought that I understood what the saying "The words you need shall be put into your mouth", after teaching about the Gospel of Jesus Christ this part week, I have gained a greater understanding of the meaning of those words.
Thank you all for your love and support. I love you all so much. 
I know that the Plan of Salvation truly is God's plan for us. I know that it is his way of helping us make our way back to him. I know that Christ is the Center of that plan. I know that the power of the Holy Ghost it real and that it testifies to each of us as we continue to learn more and more of the Gospel. I know that the Holy Ghost will be there to put into our mouths the words that need to be said at that time or place.
