16 January 2017 Goodbye Trujillo!!!

Well I am leaving Trujillo and going to Chimbote! That is crazy and I am so excited for the opportunity to go! I have never been to Chimbote. I hope you all know how much I love you and the opportunity to serve a mission is awesome! I love you all so much.

I will miss my area a lot. The people here are so special and so amazing. I love them so much. I am so thankful for the people I have met in my mission and I just love them so much.

This week was awesome!  We were able to find 11 new investigators and they are all really awesome. I am so happy in my area. It is awesome!  I love it so so so much. I am so happy to be here and to learn and I just love it! Trujillo is so awesome!

This week was really good. We were able to also find a new room where we will live. It is a nice place and we hope it can be of use for the other missionaries that will live there in the future.

I have been thinking a lot about the mission. It  is so amazing! Getting to meet new people everyday in another country! it is insanely awesome! I love these people so so so much. They are so special. I love them so much. It is so amazing to think we are all brothers and sisters. God has a plan for each and every single one of us.  He loves all of his children and wants us to be happy. through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we will have this peace. We will have joy and will have the opportunity to return to his presence, if we live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I testify to you all in the name of Jesus Christ that this is the only church by which we can find true joy. Live it and love it. Be worthy and do it, because we will have peace through this Gospel. Remember to read the Book of Mormon everyday. It is the word of God.

I love you all. This mission has changed me, and I am so thankful for this time that I have to serve.

I love you all! Be strong and trust in God!

Love from Peru,
Elder McMillan

This week was my miracle week. I don't know why but I was feeling a little down and felt sad. I felt bad. In my studies I prayed with all of my heart and asked for help. During my personal studies I was reading in Ether when the Lord says he will pull the brother of Jared and his people out of the deepness of the ocean. He has prepared our way. He will pull us out of the dark and give us light. Ether 2 verses 24 and 25. He loves us and wants us to be happy. Please, read this beautiful chapter it is so awesome! I promise you all that you will feel the spirit!

We were leaving our pensionista and decided to go knock on a random door. A sister named Maria opened the door and told us the missionaries had visited her before. She pulled out her Book of Mormon and had marked it up like crazy! She knows this is the true church and we asked her to be baptized and she accepted! She is so awesome and me and my comp are so excited to visit her and help her so she can follow the Example of Jesus Christ and be baptized!

I testify God is real. His son Jesus Christ is real. I love you all so much! Read the Book of Mormon all of you. I promise you all that you will find the answers of your heart! I love you all!
