Kia ora family! how's everyone doing?? Had another mean hard working week. Been doing a lot of planning and working this week, and it was a awesome week. We are finding a lot of people to teach, planting many seeds, and trying to find those prepared to be baptized. We had a lot of success in that and are still working with the members to get our English program started. Everyone in our ward is doctors so its really hard to catch them available but hopefully sometime this month we can get everything sussed out. My mission is still a very rewarding service. With or with out the baptisms I am learning, growing my testimony and trying to do what the lord expects of me. My companion and I have a awesome companionship. We get a long and are both willing to work hard and be obedient. The mission never has been a easy course, trying to balance a lot of things all at once, kind of the way of life but I feel like the biggest thing that has helped me overcome that on my mission is just learning how to love others, Forgetting about yourself and just focusing all of your efforts on everyone around you. There's nothing better ay. I think of how awesome the savior was in portraying that attribute of love and charity. He had all the worse things happen to him, yet he was perfect, no one believed or accepted him, he was denied and rejected by his own but still he atoned for all of us, he forgives us and he has mercy on us when we fall, sin and do the wrong. Man I feel like the mission is a mini atonement, or refiners fire. We are rejected, denied, yelled at, we win some we lose some ay but as Iv just learned to love and try to follow Christ, iv been most happy whatever the outcome. Its been a joyful process and a learning one. My time here has been a labor, but we will reap our reward sometime here. Hope you guys all are doing good, and that dad is dealing with your boogies lol. tell con and ash I said thanks for writing me even though there away. I love you guys ay and am praying constantly for you, and thanking our heavenly father for blessing us with all our fortunes. Thanks for supporting me and working hard to keep me out me out here. I love my mission and am working my hardest, smartest and using every tool the lord has given me in his field of labor to use. Have a good week you falas, keep going hard to the death. No rest for the wicked ay, up the guts again, here I come!!
