Last Letter

This Sunday, November 11th, Spencer will speak and sing at the Carnegie building, next to Bob Miller Middle School at 11:00 a.mAll are welcome to come by Spencer's home and say hello Sunday evening from 6 - 9 p.m. 2149 Mooreview Street. Call or text Susanne at 702-493-0184 with any questions.

Wow. I feel highly odd. This last week was one of the busiest of my entire life. A nearly food less and sleepless week. It was so great. We had a Culiacán and Mazatlan trip. The Day of the Dead activity went really well. We taught a ton of people at the cemetery about the plan of salvation. The branch youth made a large diagram that was pretty attention-getting, and we just contacted like nobody's business. It got the branches pretty excited and we received a large amount of references. We also had a zone junta on Friday, and Alma's baptism on Saturday! Her son, Raul (a recent convert) baptized her. Great experience. I loved serving in Escuinapa and left on a really, really high note.

Now we're just off the map and can visit whatever areas we want. Elder Larkin and I just got back from a Costa Rica tour; I was able to see all but three converts from the two branches there. And the members threw together a carne asada when they knew we were coming. 

I feel completely normal because my mission doesn't end here. I'm receiving transfers again, and they're just as inspired as ever. The Lord trusts me to continue working in his vineyard, and I'm committed to serving Him however He requires me to. It's just beginning to hit me that it's ending. I'll apologize now; I don't remember how Americans do hugs very well. Sorry if I try to throw some handshakes in and around the hug. 
I'm so grateful for the opportunity that I've had to serve here in the Culiacán mission. I've learned a lot. I know I've made a difference here with the Lord's help. I hope to see everyone soon!

- Elder Tingey
