What’s up folks!
Dad I first wanted you to know that I have never been so grateful to be a missionary in the Japan Kobe Mission. My time is running away it feels like... in three short months a year will be gone leaving only one more left... It motivates me to be better and endure to the end! I had the opportunity to meet Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles last Friday in a conference we had with him. He changed my life. I was able to take myself out of my shoes and take a big look at myself, and see the change within me. And boy is it a beautiful sight dad... To know I have even more time to change and be better, is amazing!
I worry sometimes about a lot of things, but I know that everything will always work out as Gordon B Hinckley said.
I love you dad, So much!
Ill be honest right now this will be a lot shorter than normal! I wanted to take a lot of time talking to President Welch, my mission president and share with him special things and how I am doing!
First off I want to tell you all how great it is to be a missionary in the Japan Kobe Mission! It’s ALWAYS great to be a missionary in the Japan Kobe Mission.
This week was a memorable one :) I had the opportunity to learn a lot of new things from different people. 3 of whom I‘d like to share about! The first is Elder Gass! My uncle. ( He is my trainers best friend, therefore, uncle)
I had the opportunity to go on a companion exchange with him this week! It was freaking fun. I actually got to ride a bike again! I got to be out on the streets! I got to do the Lords work! And it was with Elder Gass! We had a ton of fun heading out making memories and striving to find the elect. I love that man! he taught me a lot on the exchange!
Second Person is my buddy Brother "S". (Ill just call him brother S). He is my freaking best friend. in fact, no, He is my brother! I got to go on splits with him! He recently has decided to serve a mission very soon so it was a good experience for the both of us! I got to go out and work while he got to help himself prepare. He has always been there for me when I need it. (Mom this is the man you became friends with on Facebook) I freakin love this guy! And i hope He knows it. He is one of the most Christ like people I’ve met here. His Example helps me out in being a better missionary here. Mom he is going to America soon, and he wants to see you! MAKE IT HAPPEN!
And the third person, one of my favorite people to hear from always, is Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. I had the opportunity to meet with him in a special conference he held with our mission this last Friday. I testify and sustain him as a true and living prophet, seer, and revelator, in these latter days. The things he shared with us changed my life! He basically answered every prayer and concern I had basically within the first 5 minutes of his talk. The basis of what he talked about, was just to love God. Love him enough to keep His commandments, to do his will, to trust in him, to follow him always. I actually sat front row of the chapel and was able to just look into his loving eyes the entire time. The moments we made eye contact and smiled at each other brought love to me from him, God, the first presidency, from everywhere! I love Elder Nelson!!!
I hope you all have a good week!! I freakin love all of you and thank you for everything you have all done for me. Please continue those prayers on Elder Grossen’s behalf as he still needs them greatly! He is being tested for many new things and tests sent to the states..so hope they help him figure out what he has so he can feel better…sure hate seeing him suffer. Love him so much!
Till next week, Peace!!
