"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Approaching 6 Months Countdown Mark

Lil' update for the week!

We did really well this week. We were kind of busy with meetings and stuff, but were still were able to find some new people to teach and get a lot of lessons in. Our zone killed it this week in lessons. Lessons to investigators with a member present and lessons to recent converts and less actives, both those categories, went up by like 30 or 40. Elder Jackson and I also had a meeting with the Stake Presidency and High Council yesterday. We were able to talk about stuff and hopefully get the work progressing even better in these wards. President Sperry and his AP's also got to come too, so that was nice to be able to make plans and get help for the missionaries in this zone/stake. 

Also, we did exchanges with the AP's this week. I felt like I was in America for a bit, using a car. We even taught a lesson to this guy in English.One of the members referred us to his friend, and we had a really good lesson with him. He mentioned about when his wife was dying.  He prayed constantly, but God wasn't listening to his prayers. So we got to talk about how sometimes God has other plans for us, but that through his son, Jesus Christ and his atonement, he would be able to see and live with his wife again. It teared him up a bit, and the spirit was really strong. Love it!

I'm just trying not to get trunky. There are now 18 elders going home with my batch because Elder Jackson's batch is going home early for school. So now there are 3 of us in our house who go home on July 30th. I feel bad for Elder Loveland, the other elder in our house, who's only been out 3 months. 

But yup. I wrote down yesterday in my trunky journal hour by hour what will go down the day I get home! Ha, so excited. I still love it here, so don't worry, but missionaries who lie and say they never wanna come home are full of it. Haha! But ya for reals, the people are great here. Even the poor people that live in squaters, try to feed you when you come over even though they have no money. They're always willing to help us "joes" find where we're going.

Ha, but ya Dad, I love fly fishing so I'm down!

Aight, but love ya!
