My companion is Amazing! This area is difficult though because people are rich and aren't really looking for anything in their lives, ya know. I feel like a sponge, I have learned so much! I am really working on recognizing the spirit. I have been studyihng about the Doctrine of Christ. The mission president is great. His wife is sooo sweet. They are very organized and know what they are doing. I hope everyone does well in school! Mission life is the best. We stayed the first night in the mission home and it was wonderful we have a delicious breakfast and then went to the transfer meeting where I met my mom! She was so sweet and gave me a present with scarves and cards and things in it. I have been able to help people and really focus on why we are here. I can't wait to get people to the temple! I have realized that helping people Come unto Christ is going to be such a rewarding experience as I forget myself and work hard. I couldn't have asked for a better companion. She is amazing! I am learning so much. We need more people to teach though! My favorite thing was probably the baptism we attended. It was for a 8 year old boy. Four generations of his family was there. It was really spiritual but it was right after we had had a pretty draining lesson about the plan of salvation with one of our investigators. I love you and am so excited to be an exactly obedient missionary for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Tell everyone I love them, especially mom! Mom is the most amazing person I could ask to have in my life. I love you dad, you have taught me so well and I am prepared to preach the gospel.
I really do miss you and mom so much, but I can't imagine any place I would rather be! I love this gospel and I can't wait to teach people about eternal families like ours!
