Last week's letter that didn't get posted on time.

Dear Family and Friends,
That's not actually it. This week was cool. 
I HIT MY YEAR MARK But who's counting. 
The last year has gone by so fast. Almost too fast. It seems like just yesterday I left on a plane to go to a place that I was thoroughly convinced I would never return from. It seems like just yesterday I put on a tie and pretty much haven't taken it off since. It seems like just yesterday I accepted the fact that hugs are a thing of the past. It seems like just yesterday I decided to commit every day to serving the children of God and  I can assure you that I am no less committed to that commission today than I was the moment I decided to serve. I'm so glad for the chance to Lord has given me to serve.

This week was pretty good. We had a lot of success in talking with some less-actives and recent converts that we haven't been able to see in a while. There is one family the Saifaloi family who we got to visit and talk about the people that they are working with and trying to bring to church. They're a really solid family. They were baptized about 6 months ago and they are solid as can be. Sister Saifaloi is in the Relief Society Presidency and a few weeks ago Brother Saifaloi helped out with the blessing of the sacrament. The ward supports them a ton and it's really good to see.

We were finally able to have a lesson with our investigators Tony and Tai at our ward mission leaders house. Having lessons with them is the best because they usually end up sharing their testimonies at the end. All we need is for them to get divorced to the ex-spouses and get them married and they would be perfectly ready for baptism. It's kind of a bummer that it's taking so long but I'm okay with whatever as long as they get baptized.

Remember the Church is true, the Book is blue ,that I love you, and Jesus does too. :)
