Week 26: New Companion (Picture!)

Elder Myler's email from 3/24/14:

To Family:
Helllllllllllo Family so i am writing to the three of you at one becaues i do not have much time left to write. So sorry! haha well Last week will probably go down as one of the tougher weeks of the mission. Being the senior companion has taken its toll on me and i have been struggeling to be the best exsample to my Companion. Things here in this sector are tough we hardly ever have set apointments and much of ther time when we pass by an investigator or member they arnt in the house or are busy. So i have had some days where Elder Hernandez and i have had almost nothing to do during the day, and so we would just walk walk walk and tract all day. We have been trying our best but it hasnt resulted in much. But i have been taught a lesson this past week about being humble and to enjoy what i do have here in the mission. I am doing a bit better and am improving everyday! Thanks for your letters and the updates, it is good to hear you are all doing well and i am excitied to hear marcus has strong plans for school and i got news of Mitchel´s calling to Argentina i am very happy for him and look forward to emailing him in spanish. OK family gotta go! Salud!  Con Amor Elder Myler

 To Papa and Grandma (Fred & Brenda):
wow thank you for the scriptures and for the advice, sometimes it is hard to remember that i am trying my best and that so much of what i do depends on the agency of others. I received some advice from a zone leader this week that relly helped, he is an american from Idaho and he told me that he struggled too when he had about 6 months in the mission and that just about everyone struggles in this time of the mission. SO even if i dont get a lot of baptisms i can still be a sucessful missonary. thank you for the email. My new companion is Elder Hernandez and he is from El Salvador. he is a hard worker and we are getting a long just fine.
Con amor Elder Myler
