it officially clicked over to 24 months with the badge on. Wow... I
have just a few short days left now so I am going to make the most of
love sharing my testimony. I still freak out a little when I do so. I
still shake my leg behind the stand like crazy even when I am only
standing up there for a minute. But wow. The feeling afterwards is
that has really stuck out to me this week as I finished the Book of
Mormon for my second time while on my mission is the Focus that the
Book of Mormon has on Inviting all to come unto Christ. Nephi writes
in the 4th Chapter of the Whole Book of Mormon. "For mine intent
is that I may more fully persuade men to come unto the God of
Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob and Be saved."
or in other words as Moroni Puts it. "Come unto Christ and Be
perfected in Him... And if by the Grace of God, ye are made perfect
in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the Power of God"
(Moroni 10:32) Which power is to the salvation of Souls.
will be my last Email. As next week is Mothers Day. I wish you all
the best. I look forward to catching up with all of you sometime in
the near future.
love you all.
would like to close with this.

So I want to start this off with something cool that I found.
A Mission is 2 years which is 730 Days. However we had a Leap year so
it makes it 731. I finish 16 days after I began my mission which
makes 747. Which is what I will be getting on on the 747th day.
Ohhhhhh So cool. ( I am quietly excited because my companion already
thinks I'm weird)
this week we were able to do some awesome Service for a Tree Farm and
help with the flood clean up. So we got super muddy. Pictures are
below. It was awesome. One of my favourite things about being a
missionary really. It was an awesome Day.We had approximately 40
missionaries with missionaries from 4 Zones and 3 stakes. As well as
heaps of members.
On Tuesday we went down with just 6 of
us and then we got asked to participate so we coordinated with some
of the other Zones to make Saturday Happen and it was awesome.
Sunday at the Samoan Branch we arrived and the Branch President
pulled us into his office, and we were sitting there thinking "Did
we do something wrong" and then he says. I forgot to ask you the
other night but can you two share your testimonies. So it will be
you, then your companion and then the intermediate Hymn. And then the
we thought about it and realized he wasn't just asking us for a short
20 second testimony but a 10 minute talk. Luckily we have the Spirit
and we were both able to produce a 10 minute talk each. in about 5
minutes. Love the Gospel.
was about it.
