The Ultimate Cliche...

Hello Everyone,
this week was definitely one of result which is refreshing and sweet. So for starters, Elaine Came to church yesterday for the first and second hours! We are making progress with her. Just the night before church we talked a lot about the sacrament and why its so important that we are there at church to receive it weekly. The sacrament is something I've been trying to understand and appreciate more recently. I've felt that as I've taken the time each week to really think about what the sacrament is for me and how it helps me I have the spirit more with me throughout the week and then I am better able to share my testimony of it to the people we meet with.
Also yesterday a less active member that we've been working with that has been inactive for the last 13 years gave a talk in sacrament meeting. He has come for the last month and he did a great job! It made elder Poirier and I so happy to see him up there sharing his testimony and making those steps to grow in his faith and testimony of the church.
Lastly, a recent convert that we've been meeting with, Brother Hoke, was interviewed by the stake president yesterday for the Melchizedek priesthood. He has been making a lot of big steps lately to grow spiritually. Family History work, going to the temple and now the priesthood. He is such an awesome guy! Its just been a blessing for Us lately to see all of these people who we care about doing things and making choices on their own to draw nearer to the Savior.
I've caught a glimpse as a missionary how Heavenly Father must feel when we do the things that bring us true joy and bring us closer to Him. I Love being a missionary, I know its the ultimate cliche to say that, but its true. I guess cliches are cliches for good reasons. I am Happy, and I know that the Lord has more great things in store for the remainder of this mission. Until next week, never doubt yourself, trust God, and be diligent.

Love, Elder Page

P.S. President and Sister Tew gave their final trainings yesterday at a specialized training. They cried , I cried, pretty much every one cried. It was sad, but one of the most spiritual moments of my mission. It was after a long testimony meeting where we were able to get up and share thoughts from the trainings and after all was said and done President Tew Got up and closed the meeting. He said, "This will probably be the shortest testimony I've ever given... It makes me happy to know that you can teach one another better than I can teach you... Sister Tew and I always have... and always will... Love You. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." I Love them, like their my own family.
