Mum!!!! yiuh mum!!! finally ay done wit that crap!! awesome as mum! you must be relieved that bulk is out of your way and behind you. I'm so proud of all that you've been able to accomplish mum and at the same time being a faithful member, mother and wife, your amazing. I know you've learned a lot ay and whats awesome to know is that its all not just gonna benefit you in this life but will give you that much more the advantage in the life to come. Everything we do here now is an eternal principle. That's why the lord over and over again instructs us to treasure up the things in this life that matter (3 Nephi 13:20-21) things that will increase our spirituality, the capacity of our inner treasures. Things that cant be taken from you. Dad bro what you been up to bro? lol working so'o, just being the man ay bro. Thanks for just being there for all of us ay dad. Looking at all the people I teach and there kids I cant help but think of how much you have supported us kids in our lives ay, with anything and everything. You came to everyone one of our activities, sports, performances etc. and there just all things Ill never forget. Your a awesome support and patriarch for our family dad, thank you.
You falas as for me, I had a good week ay. Kind of slow cuz my companion got sick the poof! I told him there's no rest for the wicked boi, you gotta better ow! But algud ay family, im taking advantage of this companionship cuz its the first have Iv had where we both speak Spanish and input in lessons, its been a huge difference. The highlight right now of my mission is seeing less actives be reactivated. We started family home evenings and taught the members how to hold there own family home evenings so its been a treat to watch each of them grow in their testimonies. it will bless them and us or the future missionaries here with member missionaries.
but ye family that's me, I'm doing awesome as, just working, trying to fulfill my purpose as best I can. I love you guys and so grateful for everything you do for me, have a massive week ay!

Kia ora you fallas!! mint as letters ay!
looks and sounds like everyone had good hard week. Mum still doing your portfolio ay never ending with you girl lol! good on you mum. Fa that's crazy that wailea graduated, time just really moves so fast. Its cool to see all the family together still doing things ay. Its a good view from my perspective. Give aunty gretch and her kids my love as well, I love that family. Ash bro that's tight g, back into training ay. Hows your weight and lifting goals going? still going for it bro? let me know g. Lia how you doin girl? surfing so'o or what? lol good on you lia, thanks for your guys letters ay. Con bro oiy shole to aunty bro, where she from? she got the qualities you looking for? mean bro. Your pics are too mean! that's crack up bout helmet bryan bro. That's so tight bro too that you are still having awesome spiritual experiences and are using the tools the lord has given you to build his kingdom. Its a satisfying feeling ay, your the man con, thanks g. I'm happy as that everyone is doing good and are happy.
As for me im doing really good ay. Started another transfer and its all on. My new companion is elder Luis Ramirez Crisanto, hes from wahaka mexico and is str8 up Mexican to the days. Hes was raised in Chicago but his lingo is mint as. So far its been awesome ay, he reminds me heaps and acts just like a poly. We get along real well and the work is gonna move forward I feel at a faster paste so I'm happy bout that. Hes been a convert to the church now for a year and is the only member in his family so hes really made some huge steps in his life to be here. Hes humble as heck and really just relates to the people we are teaching because he was right in their shoes not to long ago. Hes got a lot to offer so I'm grateful as I get to serve and learn from him spiritually and the language. my speaking ability has already shot up heaps just being with him ay its crazy. So we both don't have our license so we had to give the car to the other elders in our area so we are on our feet now this fine hot summer lol. So his first week here we've just been getting lost as. The roads are way different when your on the bus ay and just knowing how to time everything, locations and all the people that we want to see. It was crack up cuz his first day we ended up on like the other side of Wisconsin and I was just telling him "ye I know where were at lol" not even. But its getting better, starting to get more familiar with how to get to places. The summer is starting to heat up real good so Ill probably be looking anorexic. But as for the work, I'm still going strong ay family and trying to raise my standards as my understanding of how to be more effective increases. My goal is just to continue improving and giving more to the lord as my time out here begins to diminish. Right now I cant imagine not being a missionary and I cant fathom what it will be like to take my tag off. I understand now what con must have felt like when he came home and was released and its scary as heck ay. I'm really gonna soak up all the time I have left and finish the battle strong for the lord. I love my time here, the joys that are felt and all the understanding that is gained in taking the steps Jesus took when he was here. Its our only way to light and understanding ay, is to walk as he walked and do as he did and really now is my time to do that. What a awesome time to be a missionary. The lord continues to give me tasks that really don't give me anytime to slack or slow down. So things are going family, hope you all have a successful week, keep digging deeper to be better and improve with this time the lord has given us to prepare.

Conway in Kauai

Kia ora you falas!! so good to hear from you guys ay!! mint as letters!! thanks for them ay, they really do inspire me so much. The mission really is so short and I realize that every time a transfer ends. It just flies and so does life itself. This morning I was thinking about how short the mission is compared to the length of our lives on earth and its nothing. I really do wanna say at the end of my mission that I used that small part of my time as a servant, serving the lord with all heart and mind and power that I could. But then I also think in that same sphere, how short this life is compared to eternity, there is no comparison between the two. Our whole lives should be treated this way ay, because this life is our mission, its short. I think about how short of a time we have to spend together as a family before we all go off into families of our own and its too short. I never thought the day would come that id finally be out on a mission and its just like a dream being here. Our experiences with each other to teach, learn and grow with each other will never come again in the same away before the next life. Time is what iv really come to see, is so precious. We should be using this time wisely ay. My mission up to this point really has come and gone in the blink of an eye and I know its gonna be done before I know it. its been a life changing experience for me ay family, and I cherish it. Every day I recognize that I use something that I learned from my family, as a son and as a brother. iv been blessed here because of you guys ay and because of everything I learned that prepared me to be a missionary during this time in these last days. Its so cool that heavenly father chose our family to live at this time in the last dispensation. He trusted us enough to be a tool in building his kingdom to finish off the journey strong. The Restoration really happened and every promise the lord has given to us since the world began is being fulfilled now. Its so crazy how our prophets and apostles today have become so bold about the fact. Everything in the church and the spreading of the gospel has changed to fit these promises given to us by the scriptures. Sorry for explaining da life but its true you falas.
Anyway my mission is going really good, transfers are next week, so ill let you know what happens. I'm good ay, healthy, strong, sexy as, eating good all the time and im taken good care of here. My skin is all g ay, my teeth? oiy shole i don't know bout dat one. should probably get that one checked out. But ye na thanks mum and dad for everything ay, the boxes. I really don't need anything, your letters are enough. When I need something, i just buy it lol hows my funds going? Anyway mum that's so cool bout your schooling, almost done girl, finish this crap off. you need to be done so you can help me when I get home. I miss you falas to ay, you guys are awesome parents mum and dad, thank you. Ash, Lia, and Con love you guys to ay, my best friends. Keep going hard you falas in everything, don't give less than your best. Nothing new here for me ay, just plugging along with our peeps! Con bro good on you g, who ever marries you bro make sure shes good enough for you ay, else ill smash her! send me some pics! alright you falas!
