Dear Friends and Family,

This week was pretty cool. Tony and Tai were as solid as usual! We taught them on Saturday and Sunday. They were really accepting and again they even shared a few thoughts/scriptures of their own! It was way good. 
I don't have a ton to report on this week. It's been a crazy couple of weeks. The work here is not at all like what I'm used to. We do a lot of working with members. That's how we find almost all of our investigators. Well, all of them really. The people we do find are usually pretty solid because of it. Working with members is hands down the most efficient way to do missionary work. Especially when the member is prepared themselves to help teach. The more prepared the member the more effective the work with them will be. I can only think of a few times when a member who was prepared and provided someone for us to teach that was not successful. Missionaries and members working is the way that the Lord wants us to do His work. Imagine that. The Boss of the company is telling us exactly what he wants us to do! How often does that happen to us? Usually it doesn't but it happens in missionary work. The Lord has told us the way. Lets use that.
I can't adequately express my love and appreciation for all of you. I'm grateful for each of you and I hope each and every one of you know it. I love you and pray for you. I hope that helps you in whatever way you may need this week. Keep up the smiles and as always keep it real!
