Dear Family-
I am happy to hear that everybody is doing good there at home. I am sorry to hear about your knees dad, but i know that it was a good sacrifice to play with the grandchildren. Thank you very much mom for the appointment that you have been setting me, i am very thankful for that. I hope that my body and teeth are in good condition, i have been taking care of myself so i hope everything comes out like i want it to.- perfectly FINE. thank you very much mom!!
That was a pretty good sstory of tim tebow dad, and i am very happy to hear that there was a baptism in the ward. That is way cool to hear and i hope that that can continue. I think that i have a couple of friends that can also need the gospel there at home, and that is a goal that i have set for this year, to help 3 of my friends recieve the gospel, so we will see when i get home who can come to church with us!! But i really think that that is great!!!!This week was a pretty good week. we went to a meeting for zone leaders with the president that we have every month. then on thursday and friday until saturday we were doing intercambios. I had a good time doing intercambios. The first one i left my area and the second one i stayed in my area. We have been lacking on finding people in my area so that makes the progression of the work a little slower, but we have hope in finding more people. I have definetly been talking to more people now than ever before in my mission, so i think that if my companion and i can keep that up we will be able to find more people.
The mission is great. i can hardly believe that it is coming to a close here soon. I have learned alot on the misison and i am prepared to work hard until the end. Today i was reading in Mosiah 5. As i was reading i felt very grateful to belong to the Church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I like how it talks about the baptismal covenant and that we need to always remember Christ and have him in our heart always. I also had a reassuring feeling that this is the only true church of Christ on the earth. I am thank ful for your letters and i am happy that you were bale ot share your testimony mom. We are truly blessed to be in the Gospel. I hope that you all have a great week and that youare all safe as well!!! I love you all very very much!!! thank you all for the many prayers!!!!!
