This is a work of miracles and its changed place id rather be than here right now.....time is special and its moving quick so gotta keep going hard ae...almost done!!! bahahaha crazy as....but yeah....was awesome as reading your letters ae family!!! What a crackup as....minted up the lawns you reackon Dad?? hahaha just in case ae....fa funny as bro...straight up had the meanest laugh reading it ae...but awesome as letter good to hear that you guys were able to experience some thing so special like you said Ash that might have been the only time bro being able to witness a temple dedication let alone being apart of it happy and almost jealous that you guys were able to see the prophet and just to be in his presence...hes the man ae...never met him but i testify of him each day and know that he is called of god. you guys gotta send me all the videos on a usb k!!?? shot...but mum in the box just send the regular....pop tarts...Oreos!!! and some chip a hoy the chewy kind...and some nutter butter if can ba....and something small maybe for my comp....he’s the man ae...feel for him a lot being new and all so if anything i just try to love the dude....i know exactly how it is and how overwhelming it gets so i do all that i can to help him out...he’s going to be a great leader as guys humble as ever and just learning a lot from him each this week hahaha crackup story we went to a ladies house for lunch and she just gave us heaps and heaps and heaps of food and the problem was that it was old and pretty much bad to eat you know....but the lady was a really old poor lady and you could just tell that she had put her heart and soul into finding and making lunch for us so you had to eat it!!! lol and we did and it was really hard for my comp....I’ve gotten really un picky..HAHAHA if thats a word but i eat anything now ae...for reals something ive developed here but yeah so my comp finally got everything down....and what he couldn’t we had put in a bag to hide it in our backpacks...soooo funny cuz when the lady wasn’t looking we had to rush to try scrape all the food before she saw us doing it you know...and it was just a crackup experience....putting the food in your bag cuz you didn’t want to eat it you know...and my comp was like i cant believe were doing this!! lol had always heard stories about it but never thought wed actually be doing this....but yeah we finally got all the food in our bags and then my comp was like i don’t feel i was like what do you want to do?? then he was like we have to so we said bye to the lady and my comp sprinted out of the house and barley made it around the corner before throwing everything up!!! hahaha felt so bad but was a crackup a good as attitude and told me after that its a goal for him to eat everything that the members give yeah he wiped his mouth and we just went right to work...crackup ae ...but yeah that was our week....been tough but were starting to see some fruits of our labors....hugos going to get baptized this Sunday and my comps going to baptize him...pres. told us all that you need to get your trainee’s a baptism with in there first my comp is really stoked about that...we had a meeting with pres. the other day all the trainers...and we had to go to his house for like 4 hrs or something for a training...and at the training there was 20 trainers...the assistants and pres and his wife and they asked me out of no where to give a ten minute talk on faith!! hahaha i was a lil bit mad, more nervous than ever but killed it like a champ..for reals....didn’t have anything prepared but was able to give a strong talk was then when i could see the progress ive made here on the mission ae....pres. hinckely said....that our testimonies are either incressing or decressing..never sittting still.....(lol dont know how to translate it to english but you get my point right....) and its true...we are either progressing or we are not...and its been my goal since day one to be better today than i was yesterday, to always be increasing my testimony and its changed my testimony is still the same...i still know that Jesus lives, i still know that Joseph smith restored the true church to the earth, the book of Mormon is true...but ive come to live what i believe, practice what i preach and ive come to really know, and feel with a much more profound understanding on WHY it all matters...i have come to better understand that we as children of god cannot return back to our heavenly father without the atonement which can ONLY be accessed through the principles and ordinances of the gospel...and that’s WHY we do what we do...that’s why im here, that’s why as missionaries we give up 2 yrs of our lives to do pure service...and that’s the only reason that drives us to wake up day after day and represent our savior Jesus Christ. family i love missionary work...i love this Gospel. I love you guys....keep going hard in all that you do...don’t worry about me. im doing my best to represent hard!!!! mum and dad i love you guys so grateful for all that you have done and continue to do for i love you bro..what ever you do bro go hard....know that i think about you guys a the kiddies for me and give mona a kiss ae...hahaha na bro...stay focused and enjoy your time...have fun bro...i love you hard ae..thanks for everything my you bro...for reals dog i want you to know that i really do love you ash...look up to you bro...talented as fellah ae but got a really strong mind...remember you can do anything bro...put your mind to it dog and get it a good example to everyone around you k good to your sister dog...miss you heaps bro...what size shoe tui got now??? lol gumboot....hahaha but i love you a good boy....lia!!!! you crackup me up every week lia....too funny...idk what it is but i can just feel you here with me when i read your letter....its just you, you know...your personality just jumps right out of the screen....such a special girl lia....i believe mum when she says that you were the most beautiful thing pretty lia...i love you so much...i hope you are being a good girl...a lot of people look up to you so set a good example k....i got you a few presents and i know you’re going to like them so keep an eye out k...might take a while get there cuz i still haven’t sent them but you’ll get them...send my love to gramz for me k...miss you heaps girl...but i love you so much lia...mwah!!!! oh and mum if you can send me some hard copy photos too just so i can carry them around in my scriptures and all...oh and my mailing address to send me packages has changed a little bit but you need to send it to this address or i wont get the stuff so here it is...

Sounds like had a mean as such surf bums you guys!!! hahaha crackup...but yeah i miss it ae...if anything it’s just spending time with you guys as a family..Can’t wait to be able to do it again. but yeah as for me it’s been along stressful week!!! lol so my companions name is ty peck....hes from washington and hes a cool as dude...was in a rock band before he came out playing the drums so he’s like one of those rockster punk guys hahahaha always tapping a beat crackup as if anything. We get along good as as fella but yeah got him from the mission home and we didn’t even know how to get home!!!! bahahahaha crackup i almost started crying BAHAHAHA na that you know i didn’t ask George and start crying that day we got lost in melville!!! bahaha but yeah for real’s i didn’t know how to get to the house cause I’ve never been there and we were all over the place trying to find it....took us forever but finally got there and family our sector is straight up ghetto...if you thought my other sector was ghetto...this sector is 100 times worse!!! for real’s...i feel so bad for my comp having to start here...there’s so many gangsta dudes here and stuff and cause i pass for a latino they really don’t give me crap but they yell and do all kinds of crap to my comp....i get upset so much but i can’t do anything ae have to be a good example to my comp and plus I’m a missionary lol ...quick night i think it was Thursday we were coming back from a members house and there were four of us missionaries....cuz there’s four of us who live in the house... and the area is really street fires and just straight up new York Bronx styles but there was a group of like 18 drunk guys who were doing drugs smoking and all that crap that we passed and we were just quite you know minding our own business and one of them yelled something at us and we didn’t give him the slightest attention...then out of nowhere someone thru a huge as beer can and hit my comp right in the head!!! lol its funny now that we talk about it but i was so ticked ae....straight up ae i turned around grabbed the can and took off to the group of drunk helmets and elder roth one of the other missionaries just grabbed me and pretty much held me to try calm me he’s a big boy too .so i couldn’t get away lol but he ..was state champ wrestler 189 pound weight class in washington and was 3rd in nationals in 08 lol so he pretty much just beasted me ae telling me to calm down and all.... felt bad for my comp if anything.....i think my anger temper in the mission just has gotten na but the very next day some ghetto punk threw a rock and hit my comp again....was hard as..and hit him in the back...and later on that day we were entering in some apartment buildings and a dude let his dogs out on us and started attacking us!!!!! full on bitting and all...ripped up my comps pants!!! lol so yeah all kinds of crap going down ae...just gotta be sweet as but if anything just worried for my comp....tall as pakeha dude. with the most fresh spanish accent and its practically like he’s got a sign on his head saying here I am, hurt me please!!!! lol its funny but it’s the’s been a crazy week ae...especially for a new missionary but if anything i have learnt so much from him....idk what it is about new missionaries but they are so special ae....i can’t think of any other crappier week that a new missionary could have than the fact that he can’t talk, he can’t understand nothing , and just being in a country that is so foreign to him, but he’s got an attitude that’s gonna do him good for the rest of his life....he’s the man ae...not going to lie but i think im learning more from him than he is from me...I’ve felt so bad for him lately but he just laughs at everything and just says for something the lord has me here and just starts laughing as fella man...but yeah the work has been really to a sector where the missionaries before just pretty much killed....we don’t have any investigators (well we didn’t, gotta share that miracle with you) and even all the members hated them so it’s been hard as working here ae....but yeah our miracle is just that....we get here with nothing right....nobody to members not even recent converts we just started working......doing everything possible to help us find someone...and nothing!!!! bahahaha getting doors slammed on us always...and just no success at all...then Wednesday elder snider called me from my last sector and told elder some bad news, hugo(our investigator from the english class) has moved homes and we won’t be able to teach was pretty crappy hearing that from him, cuz we had found him you know and taught him and all, but then i asked him .....did he tell you where he’s moving???....he told me...well, yeah but i don’t know where it is, he gave me his address tho....then i asked him for it....and he gave it to me and wouldn’t even believe it....he moved from my old sector right into the sector where I’m at right now!!!! bahahahaha crackup he’s the only investigator we have!!!! me and my comp were able to teach him this week in our new chapel and had a tour with him there and we ended with a lesson with him in the baptismal font and it was soooooooo powerful...we had him kneel down then and there in the font and ask god to see if he should be baptized....and he did and it was sooo special...I’ve never felt the spirit so strong than in that very moment...nothing was needed to be said cuz you could just feel it...was mean as he´ll be getting baptized on the 28th of yeah that was our week ae....a lot of crappy things happened but I’ve learnt some of the most important things ever in this past week....really grateful for my comp and his energy and faith...don’t have nothing but happier than ever to be here in the field serving our heavenly father....I’m so happy to be here and to be a representative of our savior Jesus Christ....i know that he lives. His atonement is real and allows us to better ourselves each day..thank you family for all that you do...i love you guys so are my life...keep being good examples...mum happy you heaps love you to bro.. miss you best friend bro...Keep the family strong bro...George, I’m so proud of you bro...Keep going hard. Represent hard my brother....ash you´ll make the team bro...Just go hard and take care of lia.....lia i love you so much...keep being a good are so special lia so let others feel it through your love for them....i miss you so much...send my love to I’m not perfect..but i wake up every day trying to be...I’m representing the best i can...i love you all so very much.

Aloha family!!

Thanks for the letter ae awesome as....well i couldnt write you in the morning cuz we had to go do some shopping for our house and the store that we needed to get to closed early cuz today is a holiday...but we just got back now and thought id write you guys....sounds like everything is still going good im glad that you all are striving each day be better...i did get grandmas box and thanked her for that one....but yeah pretty cool experience ae with my english class ae...didnt know i taught english ae....well not to brag or anything but im really good with my spanish and english gramatics and translating one to the i dont know how to explain it but i understand the mechanics and am able to hold my own well enough to teach it you but yeah pops sole i know why the lord sent me here to a foreign country cuz he knew that i wouldnt be able to control my english....for reals this past week we´ve had heaps of random fellas bro just swear, and say all kinds of crap at us....a old fellah the other day was just swearing the worst words at us bro and i got angry you know but as soon as my temper heated i couldnt think of anything in spanish bro...bahahahaha couldnt respond in a way where hed understand!! bahahaha happens all the time so i crackup hard and always think fa thats why i got sent here....but yeah we had another hard as week....with this new guy hugo everythings going good....we´ve been teaching him and hes been a miracle from god....does all his commitments and yesterday in our english class he asked me if he could have a book of mormon in english to be able to read it in its original form. cool as ae....were going to try baptize this week but we´ll see....we had a strong as lesson with him about the restauration and we asked him to read the book of mormon and to pray if joseph smith is a the very next day we met with him i asked hugo how was your prayer last man was having a hard time talking but told us that after he had read what we had left him and prayed he couldnt go to sleep.. he laid there and laid there and just couldnt go to sleep....he said that he felt that he had something empty that needed to be satisfied, a fire that was burning with in him that wouldnt just leave him alone and he said he woke up and started reading again from the beginning. my man read all night till our lesson the very next day in the morning....we had our lesson and he just told us..this book is that means that joseph smith is a prophet!!! hes an investigator of gold ae.....its like hes just soaking everything in like its been something hes been waiting for his whole life....gets to church before us, reads more than he needs to...almost done actually with the book of mormon, has dropped drinking coffe and tea, calls us to tell us what hes learnt about and crackup ae... but just if anything has really made my testimony of the book of mormon that much stronger....its the key stone of our religion...everything we believe in is based on that if this book is true or not....and as people come to form their own testimonies on its truthfulness come to know that what we share is true....being able to see hugo gain his own testimony of the book of mormon has made me so grateful for the opportunity that we have to have this knowledge. this direction that helps us know what we need to do to one day return to our father in heaven...we need to take advantage of what we we went to a swap meet kind of thing too on the way home to look for a few things and it was huge!!!! like four times bigger than the swap meet in pearl ridge, and there were so many things there...for reals everything you could ever think of was there...well while me and my comp were walking down the one of the isles i saw a book of mormon!!! lol i stood there for a while and told my comp....little do all these people know but that book is the thing of most value here in this market.... beyond earthly worth and it just killed me to see people walk by it because they just dont know....and its true...the book of mormon teaches the priniciples and ordinances needed for us to know to recieve salvation...not the clothes that were being sold by the vender on the left or the shoes and glasses that were being sold on the right but that very book....if anything it made me more keen to do the a missionary i have the opportunity each and everyday to share of its truthfulness and theres no doubt in my mind or heart that its true....joseph smith was the prophet who opened this dispensation and translated this book by the power of god.... true conversion only comes by reading it daily and asking god if its family i hope that we can put this into practice and be readily equipped to testify of its truthfullness.... thanks ae mum and dad...i know i wasnt that keen in seminary but as we strived to read them thru out my high school years i was able to establish my own testimony and only continue to strengthen it each day.i love you guys heaps ae....mum and dad....thanks for all that you do...i make a year soon...crackup ae....times flying and i try to better myselft daily....keep going hard in all that you do...know that im making you guys proud..keep going hard mum in school and work you get em girl...send my love to gramz sole you the man bro....awesome to hear that you still supporting mum in the things that she likes to do even tho you get sand in your undies!!!
