If you serve a mission faithfully and well, you will be a better husband, you will be a better father, you will be a better student, a better worker in your chosen vocation. Love is of the essence of this missionary work. Selflessness is of its very nature. Self-discipline is its requirement. Prayer opens its reservoir of power. ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

Wow I cant believe its been a week already! it just felt like 2 days ago I was playing softball and telling you guys everything! now its Wednesday! crazy how time goes by! its true, once you hit a year time really does go by alot faster! Today was pretty cool, we started doing stuff early today so we could play basketball why it was still cool and not really hot, it was super fun, I still got my shot haha i can tell you that.

Well this last week was very busy! yesterday we had interviews with Pres. Lee and it was really awesome! we talked how if you don't have the spirit you CANT TEACH EVER!!! so its really important that we keep the commandments and follow mission rules so we can feel the spirit. c If we don't feel it, the people were teaching wont feel it, and if we don't have it, Pres. Lee said we should testify, then it will come and then we should teach!

On Monday I gave my first capacitation as District Leader and the ZLs came! i was nervous but I did really good. then that same day I had a intercombio with one of the ZLs and we did really good! we taught lots of people. Right now were focusing 85 percent on inactive and the other on investigators, its hard but hey, we need to do it!

So there is like special transfers next week cause people are going home for school and stuff, so we will be having transfers and 5 Mexicans are coming to the mission and the ZL I had intercombio is leaving! lots of people are saying the reason we had intercom bio was to see if i would get one of them or go to be ZL. I really want to stay here as DL haha, besides I want to be Brody Bearhmans trainer next transfer. I don't know what will happen, we will let you know next week i guess.

That's about it from here I'm pretty sure, sounds like everyone back home is having lots of fun, well Dad and Josh that is, moms melting in the sun haha that's what she told me, but I hope you had a wonderful time at the cabin. Next time you go I will be with you guys, weird huh! yes thanks mom I'm excited about the candy! I love Jackson Hole candy, its the best. I love Alpine slides too, very fun. YES!! glad to hear Tiger Woods won AGAIN dad and where was Phil, wait I know!! probably choked again on the last hole like always cough cough sorry hes not like Tiger or me! haha just kidding, no but seriously! he always wins the Buick open, and wow, 36 to 1 on Sunday! that's insane.

I cant believe school starts, last time people told me school started was when i was in the MTC! wow 1 year already! time is going to fast. Well everyone I love you so much! I'm glad your all having a wonderful time so stay safe and have a great week! oh and mom, can you send me some contact solution, the optical stuff in big bottles, what Jakelle uses, like 5 bottles. that would be great! ok i love you guys!

Love Elder Westergard
