It's week 5 in Spanish Fork! Holy cow, where did the time go? Elder De
Leon has been here for a long time now, so we're pretty sure that he
will be leaving the area. Sad. :'( .
So, who's looking forward to General Conference? I can't wait!
Seriously, it's like to Super Bowl, but way cooler. And don't quote me
on this, but someone was telling me that it has been since 1904 that
three Apostles have been called at once. Exciting, huh?
Aside from that, we have an opportunity to hear the prophet of the
Lord speak. That idea has never filled me with so much awe as it does
now. The Lord speaks to President Thomas S. Monson, and our beloved
prophet conveys the word of the Lord to us. Our other church leaders,
all inspired men and women, will also speak to us as directed by the
I can't believe that I used to think that General Conference was
boring. Let's all be listening and o hear what the Lord wants us to

Hi, everyone! So, it looks like I am leaving Nephi. We got our transfer calls this morning. I will be leaving Wednesday morning, and I will find out where I am going when I get to the transfer meeting. My companion, Elder Hamilton, will stay in Nephi as district leader, and they asked him to train! I'm pretty sure that I am feeling better about myself than he is. In other news, this week has been really great! There is so much work to do here in Nephi. Today we had a zone activity, and we went out to the Jerusalem set, where they film all the Bible Videos that the Church produces. That was a really neat experience. The authenticity of the entire place was incredible, and you could imagine yourself walking the roads that the Savior walked during His mortal ministry. There is a very powerful spirit there. There was a a pair of Senior Missionaries guiding the tour, and they had so many incredible stories to tell about the building of the set, the production of those videos, and the opportunities that they have had to share the gospel. I hope to go back again someday. I don't think that they let tour groups through there very often. Anyway, I am really going to miss Nephi. The people here are so amazing, and, I'll be honest, I've grown comfortable here. I think that that is why I am being moved. The whole point of this life is to grow, but as a very wise man once said, "there is no growth in a comfort zone, and there is no comfort in a growth zone." I have no idea who said that, but how true it is! If he Lord wants to help us grow, how can He if we have become complacent? So He changes things around, He lets us face new challenges, and we have new opportunities to grow. So I am grateful that I am being transferred. I am looking forward to seeing what the Lord still has in store for me. Talk to y'all next week! Elder Miller

Hi, y'all! So, this is an interesting development. Here goes: with the creation of the new Utah Orem Mission, the boundaries of several missions are being redrawn. As a result, missionaries are moving, and basically a lot of people are freaking out. But as of July 1st, I will be serving in the Utah Provo Mission! To those of you who are saying "okay, so?" let me just say that this is a huge deal for missionaries in the field. My mission call is essentially being changed. I have to say that I was freaking out at first, but the Lord has blessed me with peace. He really does hear prayers, and, as He promised His Apostles, He does not leave us comfortless (John 14:18,26-27). And now, as I am undergoing such a big change, with new leadership, new mission rules, new goals, new expectations, I feel at peace about all of it. And I know that it comes through faith in the Savior, however small that faith may be. I know that He is in control, and that He is watching over each of us. All we have to do is trust Him, and He will lead us, and we will know that we are led by Him. As far as transfers go, I am being transferred. I actually think that it's kinda funny. I am being transferred all the way to Nephi South Stake. So I have to pack all my stuff to move 5 minutes to the South. Nice; I can't wait. My new companion will be Elder Slate, from North Carolina. I've met him before, and he is a pretty cool Elder. I'm excited. Love you all. Next email will be from the Provo Mission. Elder Miller
