About Me

Hi! I'm Elder Lundy and I represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm excited to be serving my mission in the Philippines! For further reading, see Ether 12:6, 27 "6. And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith. 27. And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

Stand tall, Walk true and Smile - Cause I Love You!

Elder Lundy's temporary tooth fell out...It's OK the Dentist reattached it!

Well Mom,

You're right. This has been a different week. I learned more than normal this week...

One thing I wish to share that I learned is how to teach with power and authority about the authority of God on this earth, and teach it in a way that whenever I talk about it everyone understands it no matter their education level. With this understanding, new doors are being opened. The Lord taught me how to teach it simply yet extremely boldly, and as I do it people gain understanding and start to investigate the church.

I also gained a much deeper desire to follow spiritual promptings. If I realize that I didn't follow them, it bugs my conscience and makes me feel sick. The Lord even saw fit to give me a second chance this past week at someone I was supposed to share our message with, so I talked to her, but because it was a "her" I only halfhearted it and I’m furious with myself. I even had fellow shippers so it was a pwede!

About your letters you have been trying to write to me, I understand why that is. I don't question why you know I have been all over the place emotionally. YOU ARE MOM! You have super powers that no man can comprehend. I accepted that fact a long time ago. :) It’s just I have been all over the place spiritually and emotionally.

My desire has fluxed from one end of the spectrum to the other along with who I am as a missionary. I understand better than ever what I need to do right now, but I can't seem to get it right more than one day in a row, and its ticking me off and throwing me all out of whack. One day it’s the language, the next day it’s my desire, the next my studies are cut short, then my teaching skills go out the window...then in between I have amazing experiences where I can't doubt the reality of my Savior.

Through the Lord's guidance I have an overflowing teaching schedule working only a third of my area, I have 2 investigators that passed their interviews that are being baptized this week, I was guided through a special case baptismal interview and handled it perfectly without damaging the nanay's hope of being baptized or her faith. We have 7 baptisms in my zone this week with 6 of them being in my district. I see miracles left and right. The Lord is blessing me so much its blowing my mind... yet at times my desire drops. I lose hope for a second. I don't feel the spirit in a lesson. I don't follow the Lord's guidance.

I'm kinda realizing the same thing happened to Elder Schmidt when he trained me and was made district leader. He wanted to be perfect. He knew what he needed to do, was determined to do it, but kept messing up. It killed him. It absolutely drove him nuts. I feel the exact same way. I don't know how to fix it mom...

I love you all so much. I am thankful for this time I have to serve the Lord. I will continue to do my best and I know the Lord will guide me to the blessing of all those I teach. Thank you for all the emails. I really enjoy reading them even if I don't have time to always respond. It helps me feel close to you.

I love you guys!
