That’s so cool Dad that ur teaching The Fearless Mind!! You are so amazing. Thank u so much for doing that for me and my team last year. You put so much time and effort into it, and u completely changed my water polo experience. I’ve been able to share that experience a good amount on my mission as I testify of the miracles that faith in God brings and the ability of the Book of Mormon to help you increase that faith.

I can’t believe Hunter’s leaving on his mission! I like those things u shared from his talk.. that definitely sounds like Hunter haha. I miss him a ton!

I got to see the ‘Meet the Mormons’ movie and it was great! The host lady kinda drove me crazy, but other than that I thought it was really good haha, definitely a great missionary tool. Mama, you and Dad are awesome missionaries! It’s so cool! YOU BUST IT OUT!!

I ate dinner at the Well’s house yesterday, they are a senior couple who work in the mission office. They are both extremely nice. I’m in great hands here! I’m doing good and feeling great!

I didn’t get transferred so I’ll be in Edinburg for another 6 weeks at least. The transfer that just ended was seven weeks long cuz the one before I got here was only five because President Maluenda was out of town at the end of what would have been the sixth week, so he just transferred people a week early. But anyways ya, I’m in the same place for at least another six weeks! And Elder Anderson is still my companion. One elder in our apartment, Elder Runsthrough, is going to a new area though. We took some pictures together so I’ll try to send them to u guys. They’re not the best pics but we tried our best haha.

Four people in the Edinburg zone got baptized this week! Elder Anderson and I still don’t have any investigators who are very close to being baptized right now, but we’ve been fasting and praying and working really hard, so we’ll find people who are ready to accept the gospel soon!

Last night we talked to the most anti-mormon guy I’ve ever met. He told us that our beliefs are wrong and we worship the devil. He also thinks we worship Joseph Smith. He says that works don’t matter because we are all saved through grace as long as we accept Jesus Christ as our savior. He gave us anti-mormon pamphlets (which we threw away after) and invited us to come back again to learn about the true gospel of Jesus Christ. It was so sad. His heart was so hard. He told us about an anti-mormon website and an anti-mormon radio show that plays for an hour every day.

It’s pretty crazy how people attack our Church so much! It made me realize how important it is that we share our beliefs with people as much as we can and always be good examples so the world can know what we really believe and stand for. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true!
