Dad its sounds like it is going to be a good stake conference coming up. Elder Hamula is a great speaker. Robbie I hope you get some good news back from the Canadian schools. Karen and Alvin I hope you have fun in Nicaragua. That is really cool! Mom & Dad I will try to find somewhere to call or Skype you on Mothers Day. And it would actually be really nice if you could bring some clothes over here for me. I don't have too many wearable clothes besides my proselyting clothes. And even those are really worn out now.
Well it has been another battle of a week. Rugby is a religion here and seems to come before anything and everything. We are trying though. We spent a lot of our time door knocking but we met some more great people! We met such a nice family from the Philipines! The wife had some friends who were members of the church back home so it sounds like this isn't the first time that she has been exposed to the church. We are excited to teach them. The only tough part is they live in a place about an hour away. We only go there about once a week because of mileage limitations. We met another interesting lady as well named Sarah. She claims to be a Muslim/Christian. Also she seems like a really big nature lady. Very interesting but very nice and willing to listen to what we have to say. We find some great people.
There are many things in life we cannot control, but something the mission has taught me well is to just keep going. We might not understand why something has happened or is happening, but there is always something we can learn from it. God has a plan!! Of that I am sure. Just like He told Joseph Smith, if we endure it well, He will exalt us on High and we will triumph over all our foes. He cannot lie. There is so much in store for us as we continue faithfully. Any way we take in life is going to have its challenges, but the best way to take is the Lords way. I love this Gospel! It is so true! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
