Hey family!!

Awesome to hear from you guys ay, crack up az letters man. everyone sounds way good man. cant believe you guys aint doing ward camp ay, thats crazy! everyone sounds awesome though. Cons trip looks fun man, good memories with the promo ay. man con looks massive too, oosh, good on him man, must be really looking hard for a wahine ah lol shot bro, good on you con. tell him i said thanks for the letter ay, i know he had to really go out of his way to find time for that, so thanks bro, that means a lot to me ay, im so lucky to have a awesome family who writes me. mum ay, busy as women, never can get any slack ay mum. Man sorry bout that lol your beautiful mum, I know that after you finish this hard run you'll be algud ay mum. theres a quote that i want to share with you mum that comes from a letter that was written by john adams to george washington during the revolutionary war. during this time george washington was not in good conditions in means of the war and this letter helped him put into perspective what he was fighting for which was the freedom of our country. so this is the quote:
"Anything achieved too cheaply, is esteemed too lightly"
so in other words, this goal for freedom was not going to be something easily achieved but it made him realized it was something worth fighting for. Mum so i know it will be all worth it in the end ay, i love you mum, thanks for all you do for me. but this quote goes right along with the gospel ay. christ invites us to follow him knowing that it wont be easy but that we are rewarded in heaven and by our endurance to follow him, he promises us eternal life, which is something worth striving for in this short life.
Anyways family i had a good week ay. the work is going slow again but its algud were still working to find opportunities to find work. yesterday at church was awesome, dakota came to church with his family, dressed in a white shirt, tie, black pants/shoes and he was up with the priests preparing the sacrement. it was the coolest thing to see ay, already exercising his priesthood. Their family continue to face so many struggles that its crazy but the ward helps out so much and its been a huge blessing being able to become close with the ward members, they have done everything for us. this past week we had a family from the ward go out to dinner with Dee and her husband jim and went so awesome man. it was a miracle just to have them step way out of their comfort zone and come out to dinner with us. Things like this have really helped our investigators progress, gain trust in the members and feel more comfortable in coming to church, fa cuz thats the hardest thing ay, getting them to come to church. so ye family everything is going good, our library investigator "jeremy" hes doing awesome ay, still preparing for the 11th of august and hes excited, so just working for that. transfers are at the end of this month so ye pretty sad about that but excited aswell to learn more from another missionary. Ill still be here in waukesha but my comp probably will be leaving, so ill let you guys know how that goes. Iv had a very awesome experience thus far ay, I really am loving it. Its been fun az to at the same time, me and my comp have some mean az laughs, with the work and even some of the rejections we get, theres some sad falas in waukesha haha. but ye family everything for me is good, i recieved the box from the guthrie family with all the back medicines. tell them i said thank you so much for that, iv been applying all the things and its been helping my back to heal, so ye the back is algud, still soar ay but its being aided too. i love you guys family, i miss you guys ay. have a good summer everyone and know that im doing my best out here to serve the lord and im happy to be here and apart of his work, iv been very blessed and so grateful for this opportunity. our whole building is having a party for me and my comp since transfers are coming up and its crack up cuz were tight as with everyone ay, we take them food all the time and even the land lord, and so weve developed some really cool friendships with everyone. i love you my family, thanks for all your words of wisdom, dad your the man bro, love you too ay, your my best friend dad and the best example for me. ash and lia i love you guys so much ay, you guys are good kids ay, such awesome examples to me, i miss being with you guys. ash i was just thinking of this past thanks giving when me and you went beach all day, that was crack up ay bro, but good memories with you guys ay, priceless. thanks for your letters they help me heaps man. con bro, your the man bro, massive as, sexy falas man, pcc so'o, lol good on you tho bro with the pcc and everything love you bro, thanks for all you do to help me be a successful missionary, it has helped a lot ay, love you bro, your my best friend. alright then falas love you guys, gotta go now laters!!

Shot family on the Harakeke,
Dear Mother and Father of Elder Kanahele
I just want to start off by first telling you what a privledge it has been for me to train your son in the work of the Lord. Not that i actually had to teach him anything. If anything he probubly taught me more then i could have taught him! He has been the best companion that i have had so far on my mission! That is easily seen by the fact that im writing his family! He always talks about you guys, and there is always good things to be said. As well as hilarious stories! I have been blessed by the time i have had to be with him in this companionship. I have easily had the most fun so far on my mission with him as well. So i just wanted to thank you for what you have done for me, by teaching your son in the ways of the Lord that he might have served a full time mission, that this companionship could happen. I really do mean that and it comes from my heart to say that im grateful for the friendship that this has become! He is one of the best missionaries that i have ever met. He is the definition of putting all of your heart, might, mind, and strength into the work. He does all that he can to please the Lord and its the best example.
With all that we have talked about with our families i feel like i know you guys already for real! Anywas im not sure what to write at this point but i did just want to thank you. As well i wanted to tell you that your son is sending home his ipod so you can see all the videos that he has been filming for you all. One of them on there is one that he made me do which is sing a song. I want to let you know in advance that your welcome cause it may very well be the greatest singing performance in this dispensation.
Ustedes Amo,
Elder Alex Loertscher
