Hey Everyone!

I hope y'all had a great week!

This week was pretty good for us. We were able to go to one of our investigators, Rosy, wedding. It was so cool. And the best part is that now she can get baptized and then in a year they can get sealed in the temple together for time and all eternity!

Also this week we were able to go to this volunteer appreciation luncheon for the Fallbrook Food Pantry and we received a Certificate from the Senator for LDS Missionaries as a whole for there 758 Service hours this past year. It was a great experience being there and being able to help out so many people and get to know all of those around the community.

This week we picked up a new investigator named Richard and he is on date for Baptism on the 15th of October! I am super excited for him and I am so grateful that we were able to meet such a great and spiritual man.

I also learned something really neat in Sunday school yesterday. WE were talking about obedience and the thing that was pointed out about why we don't keep all of the commandments is because we lack knowledge. If you think about it, everything that we do and are is dependent upon our knowledge of Jesus Christ and our willingness to be like Him. One scripture that we talked a little bit about that talks about the source of our happiness in this life is in D&C 93:28. I love that scripture and I know that it is true.

I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve a mission and to be an instrument in the Lord's hands. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's church here on the earth today. If you want proof of that, read the Book of Mormon and then go ahead and test God and ask Him if it is not true. I know that if you sincerely do, you too will come to the same knowledge as I have that the Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith and that the Church that Christ established is truly here again and that it will never again leave this Earth! What an amazing thing it is to have that knowledge.

Thank y'all for all of your love and support!

I love and miss y'all!
