Week 66 - Zone Leader Pictures!!

Hi Mom, how are you doing, I just wanted to share with you that I really loved you a lot. It is amazing to me how far you have come. You have worked so hard for 4 very long years, and you've really grown a lot. I hope that you do well in your job search, something that they always say to us as missionaries is that we need to do without stopping to do. We need to teach without stopping to search, we need to help less actives without stopping to baptize and we need to help other missionaries without stopping working in our own areas. I think that this is a lesson that moms so very frequently demonstrate, especially moms like you that worked when I was a kid. Its incredible to me that you have done without stopping to do in your work and your studies and everything that you are doing. I know how hard it is, and I am proud for you.
Thanks for talking to me. You are probably going to be mad at me but I left my memory stick to my camera, I have a backup of a vast majority of what I had, and have sent you most of my photos. That being said I no longer have that copy and cannot send you anymore until I buy a new one which I wont have time to do today, so mil disculpes!!!!!
Anyways, my first week as a zone leader was stressful, wow. I cannot believe how bad this place has been since I got here. Like there were people with 0 investigators with a baptismal date. I want to leave this place with at least 5 investigators per group. I am working hard to be able to help them, but really my area isn't good. We baptized this week, but we have no one else that is really progressing very well. Its very stressful for me, and I wish to do better.

I am so glad to hear how the sisters helped you out, that is honestly super incredible that they give service like that, I have yet to ever do anything like that to help anyone here. As to what Laura said, that would be great, I would love to do that, but we cannot because it is against the rules to do zone activities in mexico, it kind of stinks, no activities no sports, no get togethers, nothing. But as I have found that I have spent more and more time here, the mission seems to take up more of my thoughts and feelings and it is honestly great for me to grow like that.
I love you mom, good luck, you will be in my prayers.
Mom these are all of the zone leaders and sister training leaders in the mission. just thought you'd like the photo.

Thanks Dad, I love you a ton, this will be perfect, I will definitely do this soon here. I miss you a ton, enjoy your beach time. I hope you take care, you are in my thoughts daily, This week I am 8 months out, the time is going too fast, I am not ready to come home. While here I am in a training ground for life. I am learning how to take care of myself, but I am scared because soon I am going to have to face so many challenges, and I dont know anything about how to deal with so many of the challenges I will face, I am excited to see home, but I know how hard it will soon be. Take care, I love you very much, and hope to see you soon.
