All Signs point to a true missionary in this post

This is Elissa's Dad again. Every week is a new surprise and delight hearing from Hermana Urban. She is doing so well and it is because of all our friends, prayers, letters, encouragement that she moves forward with the work. Can you believe in only a short 5 months she will be home. I am very happy and sad at the same time. She really has done so well I dread to see it end. The beauty is it doesn't have to end! We would love to let the missionary Spirit continue here at home. Let us be a light for you and those you know that are ready to hear this great message of love and hope! This invitation will be kept confidential. Just e-mail me at

and now her letter this week...

“Scripture itself points . . away from itself and to the Fact that final and true authority belongs to God himself” N Wright, New Testament Scholar. Thinking about that statement has made me realize more and more how much I must rely on my Father in Heaven. The scriptures are great. We feel great when we read them because the feelings come directly from someone in the heavens watching over us. But scripture makes us turn to the Lord; in prayer, in mediation.

I try to turn more to God little by little, day by day. Because He is the ultimate source of knowledge. And boy do I have soooo many questions.

Everything is going great. Dora came to church. I think she was a little intimated when she went to Sunday School, instead of gospel principles (we don´t have one). But next week we will just teach the class for her. We finally chatted with Rosmeri and she is just such a delight and needs God in her life. She said that her visit helped her a lot and that she wants to continue increasing her faith in God.

Again with the couples mission! It would be the best thing ever! If you want to serve come to Monte with your cute spouse!

Sorry I barely wrote anything. But gotta go. Love you all. The gospel is real.
