Heellllooo beautiful family and friends!! WOW, what a week. It's hard to believe that it's been a whole week since the last time I sent one of these...

But this week was sick! Literally. Haha Elder Olson started the week out with some physical illnesses that eventually spread over to me by the end of the week. Haha! Comp unity! Nothing actually bad just 不舒服. But you learn to do what you value doing and not necessarily what you "feel" like doing, ya know?

We saw so many miracles this week, meeting so many cool new people!! So so cool cuz I know the Lord blessed us for trying our hardest inspite of non-idealistic circumstances. Brother Zhang is still doing great! His goal on the 19th might have to get changed because that day is our ward's temple day so maybe not a lot of people can come? I don't know. We'll see. Either way he's a stud's stud.

What else happened... Zone conference! I'm in Elder Huff and Elder McCusker's zone and they're both serving out on that island so it was cool to see them and Elder Huff's trainee, Elder Smith. Haha missions are just the greatest.

There were many instances this week where I was reminded that these 2 years are not my 2 years. It's not my time. When I volunteered and said I'd serve a mission I gave these 2 years over to the Lord. And that's a full 2 years, not just some select times of the day and then try to retain some time for myself. No. All of it. As one of the Lord's covenant people, to be able to live the law of consecration to this extent is such a blessing.

Gotta love it! Find joy in any circumstance! Have a great week! Love ya!

FIGHT ON!!

Love
