Courage is Needed

Hi everyone,

I got my Christmas package and my calendar!! They were both awesome!! Thanks so much for the Christmas package; it was perfect!! The pjs and Chelsea jersey! Like wow perfect! I didn't really want anything, but it made me so happy to get those things. 

About the week a lot has happened here as well. We had interviews with president. After the interviews, we did divisions with one of the assistants, and then I did divisions with Elder Kidd on Saturday. Elder Molina is a 21 year old from Bolivia and the first member and missionary in his family. He has 9 months in the mission. We are struggling. I love what you wrote last week. I love the heck out of my comp and I have no idea what it would be like to be in his situation or to come for the backround that he comes from. But I love him, and I have to have the courage to tell him what’s up sometimes. That was president’s advice, I need more courage. CS Lewis said, "Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point." (Elder Lynn G. Robbin’s talk “Which Way do You Face?”—I love it—read it). But that is what i have learned and I don't want to talk bad about my comp at all. So I’m struggling, but I just keep swimming in the wise words of Dory.
