Hello hello!!

Sorry I dont have a whole lot of time left (My brother took up all my time talking on the phone😂) jk love ya Chayd!

This week was a really good one! It went by super fast but it was really great! First, we had another lesson with my bestie Bruce!! He got to meet the local missionaries and we taught the Restoration! He loved it so much and was so grateful
to be learning more about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. The entire time he took notes, would nod his head, and say "amen, amen, amen" to everything he agreed with- which was literally everything haha. We invited him to go to church and he was super
excited! He is so happy every time we call him and it melts my heart. The next day, I couldnt help myself so I joined the zoom for his local church and I found him! He was taking notes and nodding during the whole meeting. I could picture him saying "amen,
amen, amen" the whole time😂. At the very end of the meeting, he even got to introduce himself. He then proceeded to tell the entire story of his family coming on to Temple Square, meeting the sisters
(😊😊), being introduced to the Book of Mormon, and even learning about General Conference. He said he felt it was a pleasure to be there and was really interested in learning more! The bishop immediately
got on and said "Elders, do you have his contact info??" I was dying the whole time! He is literally so prepared- I love him with my whole heart!

On Monday, we had our zone conference and my companion and I got to give a training! We talked about the importance of being unified as a companionship in order to help our friends progress. I honestly learned so much and felt grateful
for the opportunity. I remember at the beginning of my mission seeing the zone leaders give their trainings and thinking "oh my goodness, I could never do that!" And then I did it! It helped me ponder and reflect on the missionary and person I have become
and the confidence I have gained in myself and the gospel:))

This morning I had a special opportunity to interpret in ASL for the headquarters mission conference. It was such a neat experience! Over the past couple of months, I have fallen in love with ASL- and more specifically the wonderful deaf
people I am in contact with!

This week I have been really pondering and thinking about my relationship with the Savior from the start to this point in my mission. Throughout the week, we have had the special opportunity to testify of Him alot. I thought about how the
most precious knowledge I have is that Jesus Christ is so REAL! He lives and cares for us so much. The atonement is such a real thing and something that we all can have access to. It is such a source of strength, healing, comfort, repentance, etc... I truly
feel that and my heart feels so full because of that knowledge. Over the course of my mission, I have increased my knowledge and intellect of the gospel, but more than anything I have felt the Savior really touch my heart. I have many tender feelings for Him
and the impact he has made on ME. We talked about this in one of our lessons, but it is so crucial to know that Jesus is not just the Savior but he is MY Savior! I feel so connected to Him and have developed a genuine love for Him. I know he loves each of
you immensely and I promise that just as He is MY Savior, He is YOUR Savior! I hope you feel that and come to that knowledge and tender feeling yourself:))

Love you! Have a wonderful week!
