Well last week. I took to heart what president center said in an email to me not to long ago . it said it is not too late to baptize that is exactly how i feel. We will have a baptism before i leave. I am serving in an area called Enoch west 1 i cover 5 wards and 2 are in cedar city. I am in the cedar city zone. so i am not in st.george  until next week then i go home. It is bitter sweet. I love my mission and know that the Atonement works in our daily lives. I can not explain the happiness that comes from serving others. i love service it is apart of my soul. mosiah 2:17 says when you are in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your god. I believe that with all my heart. I love you all. I can not wait to tell stories about different experiences on my mission. Great things are brought to pass by small and simple means. That explains missionary work. you leave for a while to share  your experinces and your beliefs with others i just abslutely love it. I look forward to visiting with you guys soon and seeing some of you on the 20th when i give my talk . I love you all and pray for you .
love, elder linville

This week was pretty good. We spent some time to clean our apartment and our car. organize our supplies and our area book. We now have a clean environment to invite the spirit to dwell and cleanliness is definitely next to godliness. We are getting to know our leadership and our people . we take it a day at a time. I know i am here with elder Greene who is awesome for a reason. that reason is to get this area going. we will plan and work hard. Thanks for all your support and prayers. I am grateful for all of you and the positive impact you have in my life! I look forward to telling you of the miracles that will happen this week at the beginning of next week.

I love being a missionary. I am in a trio and i am district leader and Sr companion. It is a lot of responsibility and it is fun and sometimes stressful . I love my 2 companions elder Daley and Hunsaker . I am learning all the time. I want to improve. That is why i am in leadership to improve my work and help lift others up. I am striving for humility and patience and love. I am always praying and i ask the Lord a lot of questions. he listens and answers the ones i need and waits sometimes for others to come. I love being a missionary and i was sick but now i feel a lot better. I am going to try and improve this week and see what the Lord has in store for us. well my birthday is coming up on the 27th and man i do not feel like 21 but that is what ill be. i love my family and friends. Thanks for your support and friendship.
love, elder linville
ps remember that you are a child of god and that with the help of the Lord all things are possible even repentance where that is necessary.

I am one of three district leaders  in this zone. i love this work. I am excited as we continue to help the people here. i love the gift of the holy ghost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a wonderful gift heavenly father gave us. I can not wait to see as we work the blessings and miracles ahead.

Busy week

This week went by fast with all the meetings we had. We had ztm and a mission conference where elder bednar taught us the importance of the holy ghost. Then church and cordinaton meetings. We set aside 3 people this week and it was hard. I love the people but we can only do so much . I love this work and know it is true. I will let you guys know about the transfer call and what is going to happen. I am learning a lot and it is fun. I can not wait to see what will happen as we act and then the power will come.

Mission growing

I am doing well. I survived a transfer and everything is the same. I love the new changes coming in our mission. We grew from 160 to 180 missionaries and a new mission president. We moved too. Our last landlords had a daughter moving in so we were out but we are in our new appt in a members basement about 1 mile away from our old appt. I love serving the lord and working hard. Why serve a mission if you are not going to work? I will work to the last second of my mission. I am learning how to be a true disciple, have exact obedience, become a preach my gospel missionary and have fun. I love our job of saving souls. I also have my brother renzo as a full time missionary and i am sure he is going to rock his mission. He will change peoples lives just like we each can. be an example and open your mouth it is not rocket science. I love the Savior and the Atonement. I love you all and have a great week .
