First opening comments, THAT BROADCAST WAS MIND BLOWING THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH!!!! I am so excited to have front line placement while the Lord is hastening the work. I know that the work that I am involved in is the work of the Lord. It is funny to think about the technology entering the field...we should have expected it. I can't wait to see how it all works and how much more effective I can be.
As to my current efforts, Elder Callister and I are trying new finding techniques daily. We prayerfully decided today that it would be good to drop our two investigators and start from scratch again.
We both had a neat experience that strengthened our testimonies and got us involved in the work even more. We are becoming the fourth missionary.
Learning how to receive personal revelation and apply it is super fun and uplifting.
The official change day for the mission is the (which seemed FOREVER away 5 months ago) and I will be staying in my same apartment. Feel free to send me stuff :)
Elder Callister and I are doing great together. We have had a few rough patches, but we are doing good.
NO ONE TELLS YOU THAT YOU CAN BE YOURSELF AS A MISSIONARY!!!!! Seriously what is that all about?? So long story short we are happier because we aren't trying to be someone else. It was quite a hit when we were getting ready for bed last night singing the Mulan song "Lets get down to business, to defeat the Huns. You're the saddest lot I ever saw, but you can bet before we're through, Mister I'll make a man out of yoooooooou." That and Mega mind have become regular quote staples :)
I am so excited to meet President Porter!
I know that the Atonement is real. Jesus Christ Loves me and you. There is no sin that can hide us from the Light of Christ. Heavenly Father wants us to return to Him. I am here because I love My God, and I love his Children. I am so grateful to have your support. I love this work. I can't believe that it has been 5 months almost 6 already. I MISS THE TEMPLE. If I could exhort you to do anything it would be go to the temple as often as possible!
Love you all
