Tender Mercies

December 16, 2013

Hello all of my dear friends and family, 
I love all of you so much, each one of you has impacted my life for good, I am so full of love this week, much more than usual, all I can say is I love you and I thank each of you for changing my life for the better. To all of you who are in so many different places throughout the world, continue on being who you are, an example of the believers! May Christ be with each of you!
This week has been one of the busiest weeks and one of the best weeks of my entire mission! God is so good to me and I am thankful for His love and tender mercies. 
This past week was transfer week, Wednesday morning I drove 4 missionaries to the check point in Helena, the transfer van was running over an hour late but when it got there I received my new Zone Leader companion Elder Wyatt who is from Washington and has been out on his mission almost 8 months. I met him when he came into the mission and we served in the same Zone together, he is a great missionary and we are instant best friends. 
He and I are companions with Elder Doyle who has been out for 13 months and he too is a great missionary who I know very well, I love him and appreciate his example to me. The three of us are growing together and teach well in unity.  We all traveled back to Great Falls, got everyone on their way and then drove to an appointment with a family in the Cascade Branch who live out in the country, with the snowy, icy and muddy roads its a miracle our Toyota Corolla made it to the house. Only 4x4s should have been able to make it haha, but we indeed made it and taught this wonderful family and committed their 10 year old son to be baptized on December 28th. We are excited for that! We then attended the Cascade Branch Christmas party.  
Thursday we drove to Helena again to pick up a brand new missionary who is being trained in our Zone. I always love picking up new missionaries and seeing the look on their faces, giving them a big hug to welcome them to the MBM and tell them its going to be great! We got back from those travels and had some good lessons that night!
Friday we made a somewhat last minute decision to travel the Northern half of our Zone and to interview each missionary, so we went on a 6 hour road trip, stopping in all the towns where we have missionaries and interviewing them. I always love being able to see all our missionaries, to see the light of Christ in their eyes and to learn from them. We made it home to GF just in time for the Two Rivers Ward Christmas party which was a great time!
Then Saturday was one of the best days I have had on my mission, we have 4 amazing lessons and because of the tender mercies of the Lord, everything just fell into place, we were able to meet all 4 appointments and the Spirit was so strong in each lesson, it was truly a fabulous day! 
One of the lessons we committed a new investigator to be baptized in late January, he is the most "golden" investigator I have ever had, he is awesome and told everyone at church he is getting baptized.
Sunday we split up to go to both Cascade and Two Rivers meetings and I went to Two Rivers ward... We had 12 people there we had invited to come... The most I have ever had in one Sunday. It was just truly an amazing week. 
I am thankful to be a missionary, I pray I can be an instrument in the hands of the Lord, I bear you my witness that God lives, He loves you and sent his Son, Jesus Christ to this earth for you. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, He died for you, He was resurrected and He lives for you. I invite all to come unto Christ the Lord, come unto Him and through faith in Him, repenting, making and keeping covenants and enduring to the end with the Holy Ghost at your side. 
This church is true, this is God's kingdom here on Earth, come join now with us and know of the peace and happiness I have come to know. 
I love you, Merry Christmas!  
Elder Aaron Organ
