"I really appreciated your letter this week, I definitely hear what you're saying, every day isn't just peachy unfortunately haha. Even though we had such a great week with the Woodruffs and Alan getting baptized I've kinda felt in a funk too, almost like I'm loosing some stamina for the work, it's hard to do everyday. Sometimes it's hard to even identify why...I think it just happens at times. I love the "action conquers fear" quote. An apostle once said that 95% percent of missionaries issues and problems can be solved by just getting to work, I believe that applies to our lives outside of missionary service. That doesn't mean we won't still have times when we get in a weird mood, or have days that are just off for some reason...but being able to identify that we just need to regroup and look forward has a lot of value.
Honestly it doesn't seem like Spencer should be graduating yet haha, it was always weird to me having him be a year behind in school even though there's like 2 1/2 years between us. I think that's cool though that he's moving on along with all those other people, I hope he's ready for college. Erika is a boss! I can't believe she got an A+ on that paper, I always heard Mr. Search's class was pretty hard. Very cool! I'm so glad that you and especially Garrett is making keeping the Sabbath day holy a priority, that isn't easy in the world today but it's definitely the right choice! Thank you for raising us that way:)
...I sent Kylie a letter in the mail today, she seems to be doing great!
Alan asked me to Baptize him, it went really great! Then yesterday the Woodruffs and Alan all received the Holy Ghost, I'll be sending some pictures and other things home soon. For some reason Elder Brown and I are having a hard time finding new investigators this transfer, I think we had 2 the first week but haven't found any since. Last transfer we found 14. I wish I had more to update on for this last week. We have transfer meeting on the 26th and I've got this feeling I'm getting transferred, I don't know why. Happy Fathers Day! I'll be sending you a letter later this week. Thank you for being a real motivator for me, I'm not perfect but I have a continued desire to become better and I'm thankful to the whole family for that. I hope you all make this week a great one! I love you, I'm grateful for who you are and I hope you know you're a real part of who I am, and I'm grateful for that. Love you All!
With faith, your missionary, (one of em!) ;o)
