Revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord
Jesus Christ. He is my master and He has chosen me to represent Him--to
Stand in His place, to say and do what He Himself would say and do if He
Personally were ministering to the very people to whom He has sent me. My
Voice is His voice, and my acts are His acts; my doctrine is His doctrine.
My Commission is to do what He wants done; to say what He wants said; to
Be a living modern witness in word and in deed of the divinity of his
Great and marvelous Latter-day work. How great is my calling
how great is my calling ae, i love our lord savior Jesus Christ, i know he lives, and this is his true church. i love you family and thank you for all that you guys do for me..Keep going hard...represent hard, and always push yourselves. mum and dad..i love you guys so much...thanks for everything..can’t wait for the day to see yous again...don’t worry about me...I’m doing my best, and try to better myself each day...go hard and keep the family in line. george, ash, and good those around you and always be willing to make sacrifices..the lord will bless us as we do what he good examples and always remember who you are...i love you guys so much..send grandma and the rest of the family my love k....but until next week family,

Kia Ora WHANAU!!!!
sup family!!! what a week ae! ahahahaha well what a great letter sounds like everything is still the same and glad you guys are having productive weeks...but family i need to tell you all real quick that I WILL BE EMAILING YOU GUYS AGAIN TOMORROW WITH THE INFO TO CALL ME YA...THE TIME AND ALL...we weren’t able to plan it all by today so I’ll hit you guys up tomorrow with all the don’t panic k....but yeah family today is transfer day again!! hahaha this is my 9th transfer in the field!!! crazy ae!! hahahaha they just keep going by faster and faster...time and what we do with our time our the most precious gifts that we are given in the life..todd christoferson talked a lil about that this past conference and its been something that helped me stay in check...this time really is scared and what i do with it will depend on my diligence and love for our savior Jesus that’s what pretty much pushes me each day to be i doing what the savior would do if he were here?? am i using his time wisely?? do i really love him?? that’s what it really comes down to right....if we really love the savior we will give him our best. we will do anything an everything so that he will not suffer in vain, so that he "won’t have to do pushups for nothing!" i would have to say that my time here in this country has helped me come to understand just a tad bit more of the reality of this incomprehensible act of love. Jesus does live and he did die for us...paid the price for every sin that anybody will ever commit in this life..if we really understood the importance of this sacrifice and its motive of love that helped bring it to pass we would be perfect! this very perfection is what god wants from us and what we should be striving for each in the most humble and solemn way, let’s be perfect!!! i love you all so much and miss you all even more...I’m representing hard and i strive each day to be better and perfect....i hope that we all can remember our savior and let his atonement motivate us to be our best...y al hacerlo sè que este mismo sociabilidad en que existe entre nosotro aquí existirá entre nosotros allá acompañado con una gloria en que ahora no i love you all heaps ae....
our week was good...a lot of things we need to change, which we´ve been striving to do to help us be better missionaries...elder peck and i get along great as ae...he’s such a crackup fella man...and a companionships chemistry is always most important so were good nights we´ve been playing these crackup soccer games in the house...full on two on two...and we clear out our lounge and just go hard....its funny as...cuz i hate soccer but we go hard and have a mean as sweet in the little area that we have to play..full on dive, head buts and all. funny ae...who’d ever thought I’d be playing soccer....but me and peck have been thinking of things we can do for the members so today we are going to go buy them a bunch of stuff...i love the members ae...there’s your handful of them that are useless as and waste time...but i love them all my own. know every member in my ward by name from the oldest grandma to the littlest baby and its really showed the members the love that we have for them....we´ve been trying to focus the work by doing it thru the members so we´ve been getting a good start with them winning their trust and all...our bishops useless hahaha and our ward mission leader but other than that all is good....i still get tired hard from walking all over and we´ve started hitch hiking!! hahaha works...not that much but maybe here and there....but yeah that’s been us.. but famz i don’t have much time left....tomorrow I’ll give you guys the info, and I’ll talk to you guys this Saturday!!!! ahhhhhhh!!

Just gotta go hard in whatever you choose to do ya....ash sole proud of you bro..kill it dog...push yourself bro...hori boy ha sole you the man bro...keep going hard ae dog...just a week left bro...Just give em ba...proud of you ae my brother.. talented mungrol bro.gonna be a mean as missionary..for real’s dog just keep doing the things you know you need to do...organize yourself bro and strive to better each day...nothing can stop us bro but ourselves..Love you bro...mum, funny the doctor story ae...hahaha it was crackup as not going to lie....but she was beautiful...bahahah but was good as chatting to you guys last week...miss you ae mum...i still have my moments too so no worries ba...time flies when you get lost in the work...for real’s almost done and i have no idea where it’s no worries sole not going to lie bro. but thanks for telling me to get off facebood last week...for real’s i was small kine homesick and wanted to talk to you guys but when you told me to go it was kind of a slap in the face ae and reminded me of and more than anything motivated me to do what i need to do....set my week off on a good note ae bro so thanks dog...I’ve been good ever since so it’s all good..Still it was good to talk to yous! hahahaha but Christmas day is coming so everything’s gonna be all g...can’t wait to talk to yous ae...but yeah dad just wanted to thank you bro. love you and forever grateful for all that you’ve done for the family..For not only fulfilling the calling as a father but magnifying it bro..for making what we do in the home the most important thing for you bro...the holiest place outside of the temple bro so where’ve been blessed as children to have had instilled in our home that of most importance in this life..the gospel. Thanks bro.

But yeah family..we had another awesome week...I’ve been good and peck have been thinking of a lot of things that we can do for Christmas for all of the members in our we´ve come up with some cool as things so we´ll see what we can do that is low budget but still meaning full.. in the house everything’s been the same...actually sat the boys down and talked to them about keeping the house clean lol and it’s been a lot better was a pig stie for real’s have no idea how we lived in it but had a massive clean session...but yeah been doing the regular missionary work you know.. Trying to find, cultivating what were finding, and trying to harvest that which we have found and there’s not to many plants ready to give D&C´s all plaque bro, the fields not that white! hahhahahaha na jokes jokes...the mission is special as ae...cuz your always learning something...always! if your finding, if you’re not finding, if your teaching or if you’re not teaching, if your baptizing or if you’re not doesn’t matter what happens as long as we are applying ourselves, showing the lord our availability and dependability, whatever happens that is good or bad we are always learning. and that’s what makes the mission different than anything else is that we actually live what we learn and believe...things become different and have such a deeper meaning when you actually got to try them and put them in takes on a whole new meaning for you when you actually get faced with opportunities to exercise it and see what happens...patience really comes to life after studying it and applying it as we knock doors all day only hoping that the next door is someone prepared by the lord to listen to us, obedience really becomes your foundation to everything as you obey all the rules even though they might not makes sense but start to see miracles and blessings pop out from nowhere..."for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith." is every day for me here in chile. everyday i come and receive my own witness of the truthfulness not only of the gospel but of its principles and ordinances by which it is founded upon and the blessings that come thru them as i live them every single’s nothing new, nothing different but a reconfirmation that i get daily of the truthfulness of the gospel....that Jesus really does live, that his atonement is real, that Joseph smith did restore his gospel to open this dispensation and that the book of Mormon really is the word of god. Family i have no doubt that this is the true church of god. Its what’s going to help us stay together forever..I’m so ever grateful for this knowledge that we have and the opportunity that i have to share it each day....god wants us all to return back to him so let us all be examples in all that we do to help bring to pass this great plan and help all come to the knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Family i love you all so much...miss you guys heaps as too.. hard...I’m representing hard so don’t worry about me k....Christmas is almost coming up and super excited to talk to you guys...send my love to the family... mum, dad, George, ash and lia.. i love you guys..keep going hard and do the right things. I’ll talk to you guys next week. With all my love.

whats up you black maoris!!!! lol fa miss you guys hard i know i say it every week, but i really do. mum, dad, george, ash and especially lia...miss you guys heaps ae...thanks for everything...but yeah where to start...
Mum I really enjoy cooking now...ive learnt so many things to cook here on the mission and enjoy doing it....the other three in the house just let me go cause i always make enough for all and they all just straight up reap with four!!! oh its hectic...its got its ups and downs the house is always crazy...we have heaps of fun and everything but its hard as to be obedient with exactness....we have a hard time being on time to things cuz there’s four of us and all of us have to shower, eat, and all that stuff so were always late to things....its hard too, to keep things clean...i get mad ae some times cuz it gets so grosss... we run out of toilet paper heaps, gas too...for the hot water waste really quick so were always having to be buying gas and toilet paper like every other and just the lil live with someone long enough and the lil things just start to scared as for marriage!!! hahaha for real’s you think you and your companion is all good...just the perfect companionship and then the next day there’s things that you notice that you just can’t stand!!! lol crackup as but true but yeah other than that it’s been an awesome experience. Just like the movie the best two yrs...fight over letters, the bathroom requires a bunch of tricks to just get the water going, one of us will be fasting and the others will eat all of our food...hahaha crackup as ae...guy from Honduras keeps the house super lively...he’s a character that one ae...x gang member...tattoos, bullet holes and as guy tho...strongest testimony ever so yeah we all get along super good.
but yeah this week’s been a good one...sole dad thanks for the mission stories saw a different light to you ae...hahaha not going to lie sometimes when were out there working i always wonder how you did it back in the day ae....have a hard time trying to image it too ae...hahahaha lol na jokes but for real’s bro must have been mean as bro to have caught up with converts ...that’s all i hope for ae that these people that I’ve helped to come unto the gospel remain firm and endure well to the end...pres. always tells us that "a convert in twenty years reflects the type of missionary you were" and its true ae bro...Just shows bro that you were a mean missionary dog. hahah ah ah sorry bout was it talking to them??? good i hope...three mean dad. but yeah this week has been mean!!! hahaha i noticed that i always say that my weeks are but if they’re not hard it’s not worth it, i yeah could say that i had a pretty successful week....those people that we found last week weren’t too gold..But just another test of faith...the lady and her daughters..idk just had excuses for days for not being able to let us in their home,,, the old guy we come to find out can’t get wet cuz he’s got a machine keeping him alive that’s half way inside of him and half way outside of him so we’re just going to have to do baptisms for the dead! hahaha but yeah so we just started working hard again...and found some mean as people ae...this week in church we had four people there....a lady and her family...they are alright but we also had this kid who came with us....he’s 15 and he’s a kid of an inactive member...and he’s gold ae!!!! straight his mum doesn’t remember anything about the church but she’s on our records so we went by and taught her son and her the restoration and left them a book of Mormon and invited them to pray and all you know....came back the next day and he asked me how he could become Mormon!!!! lol i looked at my comp and i asked him did you understand that??? lol cuz he’s just learning he looked at me confused and he’s like did i hear what i think i heard! lol i was like yeah they don’t say that much so that’s why i asked! lol it was funny yeah he should be getting baptized day after Christmas or the following week...
but yeah the work is coming along ae....I’ve learnt so much since I’ve been here and for real’s can’t even begin to explain how much we are blessed to have this gospel...i was thinking about what i could share with you guys this week and did a lot of pondering ae and one of the most important things that I’ve learnt here in this past month with elder peck is how to its more than just teaching lessons you know, more than just doing contacts, more than the’s the names, it’s getting to know the people and all their kids, getting to really know who they are and what they’re going thru. it’s really showing that you care you know, that your really willing to do anything and everything to help them....on the mission a lot of missionaries get caught up in numbers, caught up in trying to have good reputations but defeats the whole purpose. We are here to help people to come unto Christ and its impossible when you have the wrong i love these people here. i know everybody in our ward, their kids names, their kids kids names, even their kids dogs names and it’s something real simple but they can really tell that you care for them....when i walk in the house and play with their little sons and know them all by name is the most easiest thing we can do and it shows the people that we really do love them and its truly the motive of everything we is how and why all things exist. our heavenly father loved us so much that he created this wonderful plan to help us all return back to him, it’s for his love for why he sent his only begotten son to die for us. And it’s this same love that I’ve been able to develop here in this sector....nobody will remember how much lessons we taught or how much contacts we did. Like none of that will matter you know in 5 yrs...But something that will never fade with time is the way you were able to show your love to the people that you were called to serve. this past week I’ve ran into a lot of members from my last sector(which is only across the road) and they all have thanked me for everything that i did for them...and it really made me think cause really i didn’t do know i didn’t buy them a house or a brand new car or bike but i did love them...i still do and they were able to feel that and I’ve seriously ran into like 20 members who have thanked me and its been one of the greatest blessings for me here in the mission, to learn how to love....waking up thinking in others and their needs has become my mode of thought and time has never flown by as fast as it has in my whole entire life. Love it here ae family. i know that here in conquistadores 2 is where the lord wants me and I’m so grateful to be here. i love the work, i know that this church really is true and that Jesus Christ himself directs it....i dread the day when i will have to take off my plaque and be released as an authorized missionary of the lord. This work is my life. i know that Christ lives and grateful to represent him day after day.... family i love you all so much....mum and dad thanks for everything that you guys have done for me...keep going hard...keep the family in tact...George i love you bro..Thanks for being an awesome brother and and even better example to me, ash, and lia...i love you bro..ash i love you bro..Thanks for everything little man...keep going hard in all that you do over your sister for you dog...lia...i love you so much...think about you all the time and the unconditional love that you have always had.... your such a special girl lia...let everyone around you feel the same thing that we as your family have felt thru your example of a good girl lia...i love you so much...send my love to gramz k...but family i love you all so much...i hope everything’s going good..don’t worry about me, im repping it hard...but until next week my beautiful family. with all my love,
