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

Hey family! well there are 2 way important things that have happened this week...both of them today!! well today 8 missionaries went golfing at a really hard course today! in the middle of the jungle pretty much and really pretty and green! there was jungle for rough pretty much and it was super fun!!!......yet a hard course. to grade the difficulty....i would have to say it compares to Las Sendas from the tips in hardness, but dad remember what i told you on mothers day...i was going to come home shooting 77 at the club...well prepare yourself because today i shot 74!! i started of bad on the front but then had a couple birdies and then shot even on the back nine! my driving stunk way bad...i hit like 30 percent of the fairways but like you know, my irons and short game was killer. i put it 2 feet from the pin on a par 3 from 160 out. so I'm looking forward to playing you guys and i have confidence now haha. ill put up pics and some videos on flickr of it. (is this seriously what he thinks is way important?? Sometimes I just don't know)

Now! just about 30 minutes ago i received the most unwanted thing a missionary could ever want....the FAT LETTER aka TRUNKY LETTER that tells me about going home and when and all that after mission stuff...i didn't want to take it from the office missionary, Sister Powell, and we took a pic to show how my expression was when i got it...you guys will like it haha.

Well this week was alot better!! we have 3 new investigators and a family we are teaching! they are all sooo cool and we will see how that goes. When you work the blessings do come..but after the trial. This week was really fun! we had a good district meeting and then we had our interviews...only 1 more. but other than that stuff that's all about whats going on, I'm excited to teach these new people and build Gods kingdom here. I'm reading Jesus the Christ and I'm on like page 200 and wow...this book is amazing. I'm learning so much about his life and what all the things meant and wow...i have grown to appreciate him more in my life and do more every day! i also bought a new triple in Spanish and am re reading the Book of Mormom in Spanish! so that will be fun!

I'm so jealous of dad about playing the south course, that will be so awesome! oh!! i got some email from apple and it said if i buy a macbook i get a free 8gb itouch....SWEET!!! haha well have a great week everyone i love you all so much! always remember that this is the true church and there is no other. Jesus lives and is ready at all times to lift the heavy load off our shoulders if we come to him....3 Nephi 9 says for this reason have i given up my life, and have taken it up again, so the we can have eternal life! wow i love this gospel. bye!
