Serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Ahhhhh, dad i gotta say i always love getting your letters because they are short and sweet and always put a smile on my face.

remember dad, ether  12:23  
And I said unto him: Lord, the Gentiles will mock at these things, because of our weakness in writing; for Lord thou hast made us mighty in word by faith, but thou hast not made us mighty in writing; for thou hast made all this people that they could speak much, because of the Holy Ghost which thou hast given them;

we may not write a lot, but the faith and spirit of our message accurately pierce to the heart. (I'm pretty sure i got that from your side). :)

Alrighty this week i have been trying really hard to try and be more humble and have more faith. I think it has made all the difference too. God has been blessing us with great teaching opportunities every day and plenty of people to teach. It has been helping us out a lot especially to keep us from discouragement. On the contrary, as you all know, when we are closest to success and doing our best to keep up the Lord's work, Satan will always drive harder with his dirty work. our main investigator-family that were preparing for baptism had some hiccups this week as life threw some pretty big challenges. But, I have never in my time as a missionary seen anybody with the drive, determination, and faith that i have seen from this family. it truly is a testimony of the help we receive from God to prepare these people. Like with this investigator, there were a few things that were bugging him.  The next time we would visit, he would explain how he received the Lord's help to figure out what he needed to do and he'd do it. The Lord says jump and he says, "How high?"  I love having investigators i can be proud of. :)

He isn't the only one i have that is great though. i am pretty sure they all are golden. i feel like every time we show up it is almost as though they were expecting us! well, i just hope this momentum we have with all of our investigators will keep rolling, because it is an excitement i have for the work that i just haven't had for a little while.

okay, so last night i got the weirdest dream. i had a dream that i was in the living room and Briton walked down the stairs in normal people clothes and i was like HOLY CRAP! is this actually happening??? and i got so excited and i ran up and hugged him! and he was like skinnier than me! i was like, "dang fatty you been running??" and he was smiling and didn't know what to say and then he said. "shouldn't you be heading to an appointment?" and i realized i was a missionary! then i woke up. I think this dream was caused from reading his super trunky letters, and the fact that i cant believe he is almost done!!!! my big bro is gonna die soon!!! it is so weird to think that. i got a member here and he is just like Britt it is sooo weird haha. and he just got back from Brazil like 3 months ago and you two are the same age. it is crazy. well anyways that was my funny story for this week haha
alrighty friends and fam, i love you sooo much!

les quiero bastante muchisimo,
les cuidan
