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

Well it has been a great week and i finally got some sense knocked into my companion. We had a weekly goal as a district to get 15 lessons with a member and 25 lessons in all, well i told him i was going to work and get it and not only did we get to work, we shattered those goals with 35 lessons in all and 24 of them with a member! not only that we got 8 baptismal dates and 2 of them are getting baptised Saturday, and like 4 on the 13th of February, for the first time i finally know what it feels like to get lost in the Lords work and not worry about home! so i want you all to know that i am lost in this great cause and i cannot come down, the blessings are to great i receive and i just am so happy working and being obedient, so don't worry about me here ok?
Happy birthday Josh tomorrow! wow i cant believe your 22 years old and finished the mission like 11 months ago, that's super cool. make sure you eat some birthday cake for me, and if i had to choose where you want to go, it would probably be Texas Roadhouse right???? haha you like that place, that's where i want to go the first day i get back to Arizona, then QT for a DR. PEPPER haha. Well its weird to think I'm officially old in the mission on Saturday, i think its called like slump day?? well whatever it is I'm not going to slump, i don't even want to go home. it will be really hard to leave this place, i heard the next 6 months will be like a dream and feel like 1 month or so, i hope not!

Today we went to the beach again to hang out, i took some really cool pics and will send some. sorry there has been tons of rain, that stinks. here its been dry and i finally get to play ball in the activity tonight! well sounds like all is good with you guys, i know I'm good but keep Haiti in your prayers, i heard like 30% of the population died so far, that's so sad. well i love you guys so much! your in my prayers.

love Elder Westergard
