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

How are you all doing? wow where did this week go! it went by so fast i cant believe it, we had splits on Monday and after it was done on Tuesday my comp was like, tomorrow is pday, ! i was like no way!!! so ya it was pretty awesome feeling. Well this week was really good and alot went on. WE FOUND AN APARTMENT and bran spanking new and 3rd level which means a breeze! im so excited, we will move next week. On Monday we had splits or as we call them in spanish, intercambios. and i went to the other area with the district leaders kid and it was a really good day, and experience. His kid is very excited about the work, and it rubbed off on me, its what i need going on this down slope finishing and all. On Tuesday we had zone conference yesterday and it was really awesome! We talked about a ton of stuff in one conference, but the only bad thing was that it was 5 hours long haha, i had a headache at the end, and it was hot in the chapel. We talked about adapting to changes, inviting people to baptism, repentance, pride, and honesty! wow i was so enlightened and it was a great conference. I feel so blessed or the knowledge i have gained on my mission these last 21 months. I have grown spiritually so much.

In the conference we watched a movie called, who moved my cheese! haha it was awesome and it talked about changing and how we need to adapt to them, not just stand around and wait for the good things to come. and president talked how its never late to be a better missionary and change the way you are, i really loved it!

in our zone conference on monday they told us to only work around the chapel and find people close because the people far away aren't prepared to receive the gospel and wont want to walk all that way to the church, the bad thing is that my area is far away from the chapel and now i have to dump all my investigators and go into the sisters area and find people. We have like no one now and its very difficult...im really upset. but a quote comes to mind...i never said it would be easy, i only said it would be worth it...so i need to obey and look for the fruits of my labors.
today we woke up early and went to go walk around the city, we went to mcdonalds and i ate a mcmuffin and wow it was so good! after we were done doing errands we went to pricesmart like always and ate with all the missionarys. I ate a calzone and it was also really good! now im just here writing you guys. it was a really good week, and i hope to have another good one. i cant believe transfers are already in 2 weeks. has it really been that fast...friday i hit 21 months and then its may! wow!

I hope the Suns win and continue, but i dont want them to play the Maverick's or the Spurs...the refs are racist to us when we play them, especially the spurs, but we will see what happens.

Love Elder Westergard
