Email from this week:
Ngkami, kam uara? I am doing great this week! Just another busy week with the baptism of Taniera. I finally sent another letter - sorry they are so hit and missed. I also finally received your letter that you dated on the 28th of July. So what is new: in two weeks there will be two more elders coming out to Kainaba on about the 20th of this month. The battle is real, but what is even cooler is the converting power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am not a 100% sure how long I will be with Elder Curren as he is going home on December 18th. Well health wise I feel great besides being exhausted from the long hot days, but that is nothing to complain about. Yes, other people have noticed that I have lost weight and I don’t feel sick - I feel wonderful. Because if you remember two weeks before I left for the MTC we were moving and food was probably not the most nutritious so I actually think I am fine. My pants so you know how there were 36 inch waist when we bought them it is now easily a 32-34. As I have lost some inches around the waist. I’m excited for my package and can’t wait to see what is inside of it!
My thought this week comes from my personal study, as I have been studying from the Book of Mormon. I love reading Nephi’s writings as he does two things, he one: testifies of Jesus Christ and two: gives all of his glory to God. Which makes me pose the question “How am I giving my glory to my Heavenly Father? And do I stand as witness of my Savior Jesus Christ and his Infinite Atonement?”
This is my thought this week and I know that my Savior lives and loves me too. That through Him I can be cleaned. I testify that He loves each one of us and wants what is best for us. I testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
