Subject: Stake conference in Leicester – Elder De Feo
Hello friends and family once again. So, this week was just as good as last week, if not better. We have continued to find more people to teach, and so many people are wanting to hear more about the gospel, it is so amazing. The more i teach the gospel, the stronger my testimony becomes, and i just realize how fortunate i have been to have it in my life since i was born.
One of the main people we are teaching right now is a chinese student named Minxi. he is so cool. He is studying for his PhD in finance, and he is a ridiculously smart guy. It is so amazing how quickly he understands everything that we teach him. Every lesson we have with him is so great, and the way he appreciates everything so much because it is brand new to him makes me realize how much i have been taking for granted my whole life. I love teaching him, and he is only one of the many that we are having the privilege to teach at the moment.
Loughborough is continuing to be amazing, and the weather has been really great lately as well. It stays light outside until about 10pm lately, which is so nice compared to 4pm during the winter. Everyone is much happier as well, and so many more people are willing to talk to us.
The highlight of the week had to have been our stake conference in Leicester (pronounced “lester”). Elder De Feo, who is a Europe area seventy from Rome, Italy, was there and he spoke. When he spoke, it was so powerful, and the spirit was so amazing. He spoke on how we can attain stronger faith. it was such a great talk, and it inspired me so much on wanting to be better.
I am so grateful for all of the experiences that i have been having lately. i have been so happy, and i really love my mission. i know that there is no better place that i could be right now, and i know that it will be the best thing that will prepare me for the rest of my life. Thank you all so much for your continuous love and support, you are the best. have a great week!
Love, Elder DeBeikes
