letter 6-12-12

Dear Wonderful Family! I love you soooo much!
Oh my Gosh. This time in the mission field already is going too fast.... Im bouncing out of this MTC Joint on Monday at 3:00 AM! So early! and not just that but I was chosen to be the Travel Leader for our Group of 15 going to NY! Wow! Its very interesting... Doesn't Heavenly Father know that I forget everything? Well he does but he also knows that it will bring me closer to him to have these responsibilities... One thing I have learned is to just not stress. This mission will go by so fast and I will blink and wonder what happened. As I have been here I have had an amazing time learning to truly trust in the spirit with my teaching. It is a little bit scary but the words do fill my mouth! I know that! And I am definitely gaining more trust! Teaching has been amazing! Already I have been used as a tool by having me turn to scriptures I don't remember about and having it be exactly what they needed to hear, saying things that did not come from me. And it has truly been the biggest growing experience in my life! Being here has made me truly realize who I am. It made me realize that without Christ I am nothing but with Christ, I can have the power and authority and influence as Christ would himself! Infact that is who I represent! I know that as long as I do not stress and I just make sure that I am being the Best Elder Tyler Joseph Clark that I can be I will never have to worry about anything because the spirit is with me and teaching will go fine! But I have gained a MAJOR love and addiction to missionary work. Sure it is definitely the hardest thing I have ever done in my life already! But it is also the most rewarding thing that I have ever done in my life. Don't get me wrong it is not easy, but with Christ I can do all things. I know that to be true! My testimony of Christ and the Atonement truly mean the world to me. Because I know that HE LIVES! This knowledge that I have brings alll the meaning to my work! I teach people who come to volunteer, like less actives, progressing investigators, and referrals. Some are members some are not. It is definitely a blessing to be obediant and not an irritant! It means the difference in missionaries! I have been blessed with a wonderful District however and we are definitely like family so that is so fun! I miss you all and love you soooooooooo much! Thanks for all your love! And Mother Dear, Papa Bear, Jeffy, Ri, Kyle, and Austin. I love you with all my heart and it will go faster than you can imagine. Just focus on all your million things but also focus on being the happiest family you can be because we are blessed to have a close family. Continue saying family prayers, having family night, and reading the scriptures together because these are the most important things! I love you and I want you to know that I am out here to serve the Lord! I will do my best work! Thanks for raising me as you did! I LOVE YOU!
Elder Tyler Clark
