November 17, 2014

mom!!!!!! hey :) its great to heard from you!! man so much is going
on... I pray for gram everyday.. how is she doing?

Man shelb is a star :) I have leard loads of good about her... I'm
really glad she is in something she can tear it up in :)

Man im sorry im the worst misisnoary but I have ten min to email you
guys and pres and get dressed!!! ahhhhh

Man with Stant though... I have to see him before I go.. it's a must ..
we are still homies and stuff but I want to give him a hug before he
goes off, and I want to talk with him.. but whatever happens. I love him!! He is the
man! I don't know my release date... hmmmm ill try actually i dont know
how but someone knows. ill ask around I think its right at the end of
May.. its usually two weeks before you came in..

Shay and her friends haha that is awesome :) thay all look great..
Hannah having a baby.. man!! its so werid that stuff is in the big
change mode!! they loook great though :)

 This week I thought loads about grace though... I didn't really get
it till this week... born agains say "its by grace you are saved
it's by grace you are saved!" which is true.. but not in the way they
are looking at it.. a talk I have explains it this way.... so your mom
(christ) pays the piano teacher(HF) when your playing the piano...
playing the piano dosent pay your mom back or the teacher.. but what
does your mom ask you to do.. practice :) so have you been saved by
grace? more like have you been changed by grace?... we will all fall
short of perfection but Christ didn't just pay for a few of our sins...
He isn't waiting at the finish line for you to get to Him for help...
He payed for all our sins and runs with us the whole way... He doesn't
make up the difference he makes all the difference :) I loved studing
that this week.... thing is I only did a little so I hope everything
makes sense. alma 7:11-13

I love you guys so much!!!! have agreat week :)

This is Tracy and Roslinda :) we had dinner with them and a member the
other day.. legends!!!

but I gotta go. I really love you :)

find some cheap ones this week... sorry about that.. I had them taped
and stuff but it dosent work.. they lasted for so long!!

November 10, 2014


Good news :) we are staying!!!! we are so stoked!! I'm really happy :)
only sad part is is that means I probably am going to leave December
17.... four days before Lee's baptism and 8 days before Christmas.... soooo ha
what if i stay for five transfers haha ah man that would be nuts. we
shall see :)
 Lee has been taught for ages.... he is a complete stud who loves the
gospel. he has already set up his baptismal program.. I'm going to just
barley miss it!! ah man so I'm going to see if I can stay for a little
longer before I leave so I can see it. Lee is the man though :) I sent
a picture with his family last week. going over there is like going
home. so comfortable... and spiritual :) his wife is a member and his
daughter so thats really cool. the church is true!

Grams car looks great :) ha she is always just passing the cars down!!
its good she stuck with toyota though.. good cars those. I know I
still have seven months.... but can you pick me up in the truck? I
want to ride in a mans car :)

ah man... Grandma bassett.. i'll pray for her. I remember dad said having a kidney stone is
like having a baby.. which is rough... is it a huge one?

Hey mom :) :) I'm doing great. This week was awesome! We had a really good week, I have some cool stories to tell ya. so I find out where, or if, I'm going to be transferred tonight, around ten thirty I think. They have been pretty consistent to call at 10:20.. so we will see :) i'll see if I can email you and let you know where I'm going. I do think I'm going to leave but ya never know. The ward has asked president if Elder Palu and I can stay haha so we will see, I love it here.

So sorry to hear about Ann.. i'll pray for Earl and the family.. I really had the plan of salvation confirmed again to me this week. that is Gods true and perfect plan.

Oh as well.. we are sitting at a poppy appeal booth for like five hours today.. its a big deal over here I think there are some good videos on youtube about it.

Being district leader has been great. I love being able to talk to the teams. its been a great chance to learn and grow.. training has been great Elder Palu is the man and I'm so glad that I have been able to serve with him he is a great missionary. We have had some great experiences and learned loads together. missions are the best!

This transfer has been great. It went really fast though.. so fast. My only goal was to do as much as we could so Elder Palu and the new guy could have some people to teach and the Lord really blessed us.. we tried as hard as we could to be obedient and to talk to as many people as we could and it went awesome. We found some amazing people on the street.. one lady we had a cool experience with was in Aberdare town center. Right after we stopped her she just started to ask about our beliefs, like the God head and stuff.. after we would share she would just be like "ya thats right" ha, it's was sorta funny I thought she was like a minister or something and when I asked her she looked up and was just like "hmmmm I don't know yet I have been reading and studying for years and I haven't had one that feels right yet".. so we talked about the apostasy and I invited her to read Amos 8:11-13.. talks about the famine of Gods word.. after she read it she put her hand on her mouth and said.. "oh my gosh. that is me.. i woke up this morning at five thirty to study and I asked God to give me guidence so I could make a choice and it's interesting I bumped into you.. what a "coincidence" haha how cool is that!! it really confirms this scripture to me.. Alma 13:26.

We had a few other cool street contacts of people just being like oh man can you come over and share more about it?? ha it's so cool and if we are prepared I think we will be ready for those opportunity's

We taught the Plan of Salvation a few times this week as well... what a perfect plan it is.. Alma talks about it in 40 & 41 quite a bit but I love how when somone really wants to know, they hear that and they know haha it shows how much God loves us and wants to let us use our agency to the max to choose to live with him.

The church is true guys!! we are Christians and we follow Christ :)

I love you!
have a great week :)

this is one of the families we meet with :) they are called the Mattens and are legends!! its so fun going over there.. the coolest family ever
